30th July 2015Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was very helpful and very patient. She spent a lot of time explaining what good behaviour and bad behaviour looks like in a dog and she also talked about a good diet for Molly which I found really helpful. She then spent some time showing me how I could have more control over Molly and reward good behaviour. Molly responded really well to what Isla was showing me to do.

We decided to contact Bark Busters after failing with two other dog trainers which basically filled us with rubbish and did more harm than good. At first we were worried that it would make Ben, our dog, worse just like the other two dog trainers did. When I contacted Bark Busters they were very positive on the phone and I asked for the next available slot for a dog trainer to come and see what she could do with our dog. We had twins on the way and we needed to get our dogs aggression, anger, fear, under control. It was a lady called Isla who came out. She spent a good 4 hours with us on our first visit. Isla listened to all our concerns, she then explained why he was behaving the way he was and showed us, as the dog's owners how to refocus Ben's behaviour. Isla continued to come to visit us whenever was best for us. We stayed strong for Ben, worked him hard and after a few months Ben was like a new dog. We decided to have another dog and they were great together. Also our twins were born and our family is now complete. I'd just like to say a massive thank you to Isla and Bark Busters, we as a family recommend you to everyone we know with a dog.

We were very impressed by Isla and the magical techniques that she showed us. She really was our fairy godmother! Not only was she extremely friendly, caring, and listened to our concerns, but also her knowledge of dog behaviour was incredible. After Isla had discussed our concerns in great detail, we started training with Toddy. Isla expertly guided us through and was so patient with us until we had grasped the most effective techniques we have ever seen. We were so amazed how Toddy responded to his "reconditioning" during the session with Isla and can see major improvements already as he is responding really well to his new regime. Now that we have stopped him window watching he seems to be a lot calmer. We are looking forward to meeting Isla again for our next session so that she can show us more of her magic!

I cant recommend Isla enough!! After just one afternoon the change in Archie's behaviour is amazing. We did not realize that his behaviour was due to him being so anxious until Isla pointed it out and explained why and how to correct the problem. He is now so much happier and relaxed, and not "on guard" all the time. It gives us peace of mind to know that we can contact Isla at any time for advice, or ask for a visit if we need it for any future problems we may have with Archie. Well worth the fee.

24th March 2014Isla Clarke dealt with:
This was the first home dog training we have had and I can say with my hand on my heart that Isla is truly wonderful at her job and worth every penny.
Isla was so very kind and clear in her explanations and spent time talking through Tinkerbellâ€™s history and behaviour.
Even within the initial training session Isla helped transform Tinkerbellâ€™s undesirable behaviour into a sweet little girl who feels safe and happy.
Isla talked us through how to deal with Tinkerbellâ€™s behaviour taking us both through every stage allowing my husband and I to give the commands.
As a result of Isla's visit we changed Tinkerbell's food.

Well where do we start. We where both very skeptical about this training but for the sake of our little rescue dog (Chaz) we where willing to give it a go. Isla made us feel as though we had known her for years she felt like part of the family as soon as she walked in. She is a fabulous person and a very caring person. She took some notes from asking questions about Chaz; does he bark at people, does he jump up, does he chew, does he dirty in the house. Isla then told us she was going to show us some simple exercises to do in the house. We have carried this on every day and he is getting better each time. Rob has been taking him out still in a morning but is worried that he is not doing the procedure right - this is something we will both work on and strive to achieve. All in all we are very, very pleased with the small progress we have made in just 3 days. Isla you are an angel in disguise and thank you for guiding us in what we have to do to help Chaz.
24th January 2014Isla Clarke dealt with:
I was starting to worry that my beautiful baby was somehow a problem case. She is only a pup and suffered with not staying in her fate and when she was there howling like a wolf. Within 1 hour of Isla's arrival she was quiet and behaving. Of course I have many weeks of imbedding the behaviour into my dog but the difference in just 3 hours is quite frankly remarkable.
Isla is lovely and easy to discuss issues with.
Would highly recommend
