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.

David visited Tia for a three hour session ,our problems with Tia (18 month Border Collie) were extensive, from aggression towards people to chasing everything that moves, constant pulling, attacking bikes, boats, ducks etc. This behaviour really was out of hand and whilst we had received training previously nothing seemed to work. This really was the end of the line. During the time David was with us she was taught boundries and I was taught how to control her behaviour. Tia went from wanting to attack David when we first met to being happy that he was walking by our side. When David left Tia tried it on straight away but I had the techniques to correct the behaviour and Tia respnded immediately. Already after such a short time I am positive that we will be successful in correcting Tias behaviour so we can have a happy life together.
David I can't thank you enough.
13th July 2012David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was very knowledgeable and professional, but also put myself and Louis at ease. He explained why Louis behaves like he does, without being judgemental, or making us feel as though we were terrible twins!!
I didnt feel that I was under time restraints, and he explained what we would do, and when, and then went through everything with us, explaining again if I didnt understand.
I felt very relieved.... I have to say that within 2 days I have noticed a difference.
13th December 2011David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
