23rd January 2017Isla Clarke dealt with:
I'm amazed at the progress in my dog Rosie. She used to attack my cat and other dogs for no reason. She now comes to bed with me and the cat. Can't believe it after only a few days. She also attacked the TV when certain adverts came on. That stopped on day 2. She doesn't attack the cat/dog flap either now after 1 day. Amazing! Thank you Isla my trainer. I Now have a happy dog which makes me happy.

We were very pleased with the lesson. Isla demonstrated a very good knowledge of techniques to train our new puppy. We leaned so much in the time she spend with us. We continue with the techniques. The paperwork is very comprehensive. We would have no hesitation in recommending the service.

Isla was very nice she had a very calming effect on me and Dennis. I felt very relaxed and at ease. Dennis responded to her very well and with myself when I used the commands. His progress with me is good and there is a big change in his behaviour (for the good). Would highly recommend Isla.

Isla was an incredibly intelligent, well-mannered, approachable and knowledgeable lady who was easy to communicate with and was very responsive to our needs. We found practising the techniques with Isla both in and out of the house particularly valuable. We would highly recommend Isla to others.

I was very pleased with how Isla listened to the problems we had with Ed. Her questioning was also very detailed with things we would never have thought of, that could be factors affecting Ed's behaviour. Since the training we have tried to put into place the training techniques we were taught. There has been a real improvement in Ed's behaviour and although we are not fully there yet, as it's early days, we will continue with what we have been shown and will contact Isla with an update.

Isla is a breath of fresh air, I can't express how fabulous that first training session was. Understanding our dog has improved our whole life, happy dog, happy family. We are working with our dog everyday, training and reassurance seems to be paying off. We have changed from a dog that was being possessive of everyone and everything to a pleasant, happy and obedient little chap. He still has an odd moment but we can now respond immediately. The training programme is amazing, so glad we contacted Bark Busters. Thank you Isla x x
28th October 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was extremely nice and patient with me. She understands my condition of MS and the reason why I need to have a calm dog that won't pull me over when she lurches at another dog.
4th October 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
We have 4 rescue dogs with 'issues' Isla came in and spent a long time going through each dog and their issues. She went through the reasons why they were behaving like they were and she explained how we were going to deal with it. Isla worked with each of us and the dogs and showed us how to correct the unwanted behaviour. Isla checked at each point that we were happy and did we want her to go through it again. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed at all times. She explained what we could expect over the coming days. Within 2 days we have seen a change in all 4 dogs. We now have behaviour that we want when feeding and getting ready for a walk. We are sill working on other issues, we're just happy that 2 issues have been resolved and peace has returned!

26th September 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
The trainer, Isla, was both polite, very informative and went through the process with confidence that made me believe that I would be able to follow exactly as she had said. When we took Sophie out for the first time Isla put me and Sophie at ease by telling us both how well we were doing. Only a week gone by and Sophie is already improving in her overall reaction to cats. She recently went to a friends house whilst I was away and I asked the friend to kindly follow the instructions. She did and she told me that Sophie was reacting positively to her also. Although it is still early days I am extremely happy with the results so far.

Isla was great. Storm is stubborn as hell and after 8 years had to share her home with another 4 year old staffy Luna. When they first met storm was having none of it and bit Luna and me and my partner thought we may have to live apart or one dog go to their grandparents. Isla sorted them out very quickly and now they even share a bed. Highly recommended.
