28th April 2015Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
My Lakeland Terrier was a challenging dog when Jacquie first met us. He had no respect for me and I was falling out of love with him! Jacquie got things straightened out within a month. Even after the first lesson I could see where I was going wrong and I was able to re-assert my leadership skills. Jacquie was able to understand not only my dog but me as well. By being able to relate to how I was feeling, we could explore how I could respond differently to the situation. We also addressed the dog's diet which was essential in moderating his hyperactivity. Jacquie is a truly impressive dog and owner trainer.

What a fantastic experience to have Jacquie come into my home and teach me how to understand my dogs behaviour. My initial problem was a puppy who majorly pulls on the lead, but I was most impressed when Jacquie also delved into the reasons behind this, as well as providing me with 1 on 1 training to resolve the issue. We also covered jumping up, boundary issues and scavenging tendencies, all of which contributes to the main issue of the pulling. I could not recommend Jacquie and the technique highly enough. I have daily training sessions with my dog to put into place and I have no doubt that any failure would be down to my own lack of perseverance as opposed to the advice given. However, I am committed to giving my dog the best life possible, and this means showing her how to enjoy the walk as well as offering her a relaxed home life with rules and love.
On a personal note, Jacquie is really fun, good natured and non judgemental. The type of person you would hope to meet in a both a work and social situation.
An excellent service, thank you.

We want to say a huge thank you to Jacquie for all of her help. We are only 6 weeks in and are already seeing fantastic results. We are finally able to walk our dogs, go through doors, enjoy our garden and have guests over without fear of disaster striking. It's still early days but we are making better progress every training session!!

We would like to say a huge thank you to Jacquie Callaby for the training, support and great advice over the past year. We have a well behaved, well loved Labrador who is adored by everyone he encounters. We highly recommend Jacquie and feel that every dog owner should experience the benefit of the Bark Busters service.

Jacquie was great and instantly made us feel a lot more confident in our handling of Rhaegar. The methods she showed us were easy to follow and the results were almost instant. Training and walking is fun again!

Toby seems to be getting there, sure we have a way to go but he is going in the right direction! He's been on his new diet & I think that helped, plus he loves it!
We also took him back to the breeder last week, who complimented us on his behaviour (well done Jacquie), he said he looked brilliant & decided he hadn't charged us enough for him!!
Thank you so much for all your advice & support & letting us begin to enjoy Toby 7 the lovely dog we know we will have.
Lovely chocolate lab, who is only 10 months old. I always find that these labs mature quite slowly so training is always a little slower.But with the right rules & boundaries he will continue to respond & with the owners consistency, he's going to be a super dog in no time at all.
22nd May 2014Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Amazing! The dog's behaviour improved instantly and has continued all day. He is a completely different dog. I'm totally lost for words.
Lovely bcxgsd who needed a few boundaries. Barking at every thing.
Work in progress with a little training every day will see this sorted & most importantly a less stressed dog!
16th May 2014Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
When we approached Bark Busters, we were desperate frankly. Our dog Molly is a lovely dog but she was completely hyper. She jumped up at everyone, mouthed continually. & was very difficult to control. We had taken her to puppy training as soon as we could after we got her but she never seemed to calm down. Jacquie taught us how to control our dog in a way that Molly understood & advised us to look at her diet. After one session, we had a different dog & got our lives back. We can now have friends round & most importantly our grandchildren. Molly seems happier & more content. Revolutionary & life changing. well worth every penny!
Molly is a lovely labxgsd. When I arrived she was all over me, mouthing my clothes, arms, jumping. She did eventually calm down but it took some time. This is very common & I was not surprised by her behaviour, & after 2 weeks she was so calm, staying in her bed when I arrived & waiting until I wanted to say hello!
These clients can now get on with their lives & have people round!

Jacquie was incredibly understanding and allowed me to tell her fully (without interruption)my problems with my dogs.The first session was very informative and easy to grasp the principles,my dogs became much calmer.The second session was a revelation,Jacquie dealt with dog on dog aggression at the end of the session I could have wept with joy.Jacquie has not only trained my dogs she has also trained me to be the person my dogs think I am and I am eternally gratefull to her,thankyou so much.
7th March 2014Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Nala has changed dramatically after I have followed all of the advise given by Jacquie. She is a completely different dog in the best way possible! In two weeks we had eradicated her anxiety seperation which was a constant stress for me (and Nala). We are both much happier now and cant wait to continue training and learning about heel walking! THANK YOU JACQUIE
