22nd January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David gave us some very useful intial instructions that have helped enormously with her behaviour whilst walking on the lead. We are now starting to focus on heel walking and distance control after our second session with David, so far so good.
21st January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was very professional but really friendly.
He gave us loads of tips to help us with our rather bossy puppy. He demonstrated the actions then got us to practice. He has followed this up with leaflets to remind us.
Bess already seems to be responding. Early days yet but we feel that we have a range of techniques to support initial training.
He understood the concern we have over the cat in the household who is understandably upset by this noisy little monster in the house and I am sure in time we will have a harmonious household not ruled by a small black puppy!
20th January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We saw immediate improvements in our 11mth old Irish Setter Bertie. We still have a long way to go and lots of hard work ahead of us, but I can now be in the same room as him without being jumped on and mauled. David was excellent and very thorough in his explainations and have given us all the support that we need.

5th January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David explained the processes very clearly and logically. He was both informative and encouraging in his instruction. I felt at ease with him from the start. The exercises yielded positive reactions from the start, so I am feeling optimistic for the future.
7th October 2013David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was extremely helpful, he explained everything very clearly and demonstrated the exercises. I could see immediately my dogs responding really well and I was really happy to see how easily I could begin to change their behaviour. He made everything simple and easy and this gave me the confidence to do the same with my dogs.
22nd September 2013David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Absolutely fantastic. Within just a few hours we have a different dynamic in the house and three more contented dogs and 3 more relaxed humans!
We called in Barkbusters due to aggressive behaviour being displayed between our oldest dog and the youngest but each dog also had individual flaws which resulted in the fact that the dogs were dictating how we should live our lives not the other way around.The behaviour of the dogs was starting to affect our relationship with the dogs and the pleasure of being a dog owner was fast disappearing. We needed help to redress the balance of power but didn't know how to do this. I know we have a long way to go yet and we need to commit to the programme but for the first time in months I actually had a cuddle with my dogs and instead of feeling apprehensive I felt relaxed and each dog in turn reciprocated the love and trust. I can't thank David enough, the training is worth every penny.

We had a very positive training experience with David today. He was very patient and kind and Ruby responded well. We feel so much more confident with her now, and will do our best to continue with the teaching that David showed us.

18th July 2013David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We had a very positive training session with David my puppies responded quite well to the training it is useful to be told the bad habits we as owners have picked up,so very good.
17th July 2013David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Extremely helpful introduction to training our puppy. Installed us with confidence and steered us in the right direction. I would definately recommend for anyone who has a puppy for the first time. The demonstration and example a professional person is able to give is much better than the (sometimes conflicting) information in books and the internet.

We were very impressed today. David gave us realy good advise and we will do our best to do our homework.
