I thought that the training went very well for both myself and Bella, all aspects of the training was done in a very clear and friendly manner, Bella is coming along fine although it is only the end of our first week of training, and we look forward to the follow up training.

We called in Anthony to help with our two dogs Monty (a gsd cross) and Bella (a staffie cross) because they both had very different issues that needed dealing with and I think we'd just got a bit tired and overwhelmed.

Anothony was so helpful and supportive during our first training session that after it ended I was left feeling alot more confident and secure in my abilities as a leader! Its only been a week since our first session but already the change in both of them is unbelievable. Once again our walks are lovely and calm and their general behaviour within the household is much improved. We're very excited to carry on with our (because we needed it as much as they did!) training to see what we can achieve.

We had a fantastic first session with Anthony, so impressed with his manner and knowledge, he really helped us feel at ease and understand Murphy's (our stubborn shih tzu) point of view. After just one evening session (which he purposely arranged to suit us) the difference in Murphy was amazing, he was calm, settled and seemed relieved to no longer have to try and be in charge all the time. The support is the best bit, knowing that any time in the next year we can cry for help is hugely reassuring especially as we are first time dog owners! So happy with Anthony and definitely recommend him and bark busters as a whole, who have been great from ringing for advice to quick email replies. Thank you Anthony!! All the family is looking forward to the next step in making Murphy and us happier.

I called Barks Busters because their were a few things I wanted to correct with Narla the biggest one is pulling on the lead, I am 5 months pregnant and really wanted to be able to walk her on a lead nicely so i don't dread going for walks. I had high expectations for bark busters and I am pleased to say I wasn't disappointed, Anthony was friendly and professionl, all his information made sense and best of all worked. I couldn't believe how quick Narla took to the training and walks so much better, she still needs correcting every now and again but she understands what she should be doing and this is her 3rd walk so all going well. I have training exercises to do with her daily and I'm really looking forward to seeing the changes in her, making her a happier dog and a happier family.

My wife & I were having some issues with Scarlette, mainly when it came to her obedience. Walking her was a nightmare, she would always pull our arms off and her attention was everywhere other than on us and what was ahead. When asking her to do something, even the most basic commands, it could take 4-5 attempts until she listened. When we had our friends round the house, she would always jump up them, get really excitable and trying to calm her down wasn't easy. We made the decision to get in touch with Barkbusters just over a week ago, and already it's been the best decision we made.

Anthony came round to our house, very polite, friendly & professional. He sat down with us in a separate room to the dog at first, to let us tell him what problems we were having and what help we needed. From the moment we were about to let Scarlette in the room the training started immediately, and it was amazing how effective it was. His instructions were easy to understand, and even if we got it wrong, he didn't make us feel stupid, he just helped us do things the way they needed to be done.

By the end of the first 3 hour session, Scarlette was already showing us she could walk by our side and not pull on the lead, and she wouldn't move unless instructed otherwise. We were amazed!! She was calmer, we were calmer, and all of us seemed happier. We're looking forward to working on the training programme we've been given, and we're really excited that we can get Scarlette behaving exactly how we want her to.

Bark Busters - Highly Recommended!

I am conscious I have a very naughty dog who likes to think he is in charge of the house and we do what he tells us to do. I was beginning to give up all hope of ever getting him to do what I wanted him to do so trawled the internet for help and found "Bark Busters" - best thing I have done.

Meeting Anthony and listening to his words of encouragement has given me some hope and light at the end of the tunnel and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. He understood I also have other issues at home and he was so patient and understanding.

Im at the end of week 1 and I wont lie it is hard going at the moment as Teddy is set in his ways but I will persevere and knowing Anthony is at the other end of the telephone helps enormously.
