24th October 2012David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was a great listener and quickly understood the problems we were having with our rescue dog. Very quickly we got to work on some training exercises and our dog responded. By the end of the session our previously wild bouncy puppy was content to walk on the lead "at heel" rather than pulling my shoulder out of its socket and he had learnt to sit in the hall and wait for the door to be opened and the visitor to come in before greeting them. He no longer jumps up at visitors. David left us with homework which has helped to reinforce the new behaviours. Looking forward to our next session now.

Easy to follow instructions. David seemed to get to the route of problems. I was very impressed with the assessment of the situation. I seemed to have had an improvement already!
16th October 2012David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
... we felt very positive after the first session. Good tips and advice, with the emphasis on leadership being the key point we picked up on. Its easy to read tips in books and not know how to implement them and more importantly of how to implement them without confusing yourself and more importantly the dog. We know we need to aim for consistency !

David is absolutely excellent, he has a great way in that he is not only clearly passionate and knowledgeable about dogs, their behaviours and how to train them but is an excellent teacher of humans too.
7th September 2012David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We cannot praise David's work and dedication highly enough, he cares so much about what he does, it was a real pleasure to meet and work with him and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to others. If he's an example of the Bark Busters team, then, again, we'd have no problem in recommending BarkBusters.

David quickly diagnosed the problem we were experencing with Coleman and provided us with both the reassurance and confidence we needed to carry out the necessary training . Although we still have a way to go , we are very pleased with the support David is providing and feel relaxed in the thought that we can call on him for further assistance as required . We are glad that we contacted Bark Busters and would readily recommend them .

David listened to all the problems that we had been having with Sooty and was not fazed at all. He explained everything that he would be doing and broke it all down so we knew what we were doing. He was with us for three hours the first time and we couldnt believe the difference in Sootys behaviour. At the the end of the session Sooty was noticeably calmer. We continued with the training exercises that David showed us on a daily basis and the jumping has completely stopped, he is not so easily distracted or hyperactive and has really settled down. Visitors to the house have commented on the change in him, where as he used to jump up at them and even on occassions wee on them, this has all stopped. Our 6 year old son, Daniel, now spends a lot more time with him as he is no longer worried about being knocked over. We are thrilled with the change, and couldnt be happier with the service that we have received. David has listened to all our concerns and showed us how to work with Sooty and get great results. He has even taught Daniel how to teach Sooty some simple tricks.

I am very impressed with the progress that Ellie has made in just a short time. She now waits patiently when visitors arrive,walks well on and off the lead and for the first time she was in the presence of a small white dog (her greatest
dislike) without reacting. David has made a real difference already to Ellie's behaviour and given me the confidence to enjoy walking her again,knowing that I have techniques to deal with problems.I look forward to the next session.
