I just thought I would let you know how we are getting on with Dulcie. We took her to my sister's house in the country & let her off the lead. she was fantastic & absolutely loved it & had such a great time. It was lovely to see her running free probably for the first time in her life!
Since then , we have let her off in the park & she has been such a good girl. She has made amazing progress & almost always come back when asked to! In fact she is better than our other dog!
Your tips & techniques are so useful & we use them all the time. Thank you so much for your help.

Jacquie was so easy to talk to & so approachable & understanding. We are now on day 2 of our new approach on how to handle the barking when the door bell goes & going to doors when visitors arrive. There is still some resistance from Elsie which I was expecting whilst Bruno just does as he is asked!
Barking when left alone has greatly improved. Jacquie has empowered me to be more assertive & know how to communicate with my dogs.
My experience of Bark Busters so far, 2nd day, is good to excellent.
Over the following weeks a great improvement, a little barking when left but not every day.
Jacquie has been great!!

The teaching was very clear & understandable. Understanding why our dog was behaving as she did was very insightful & made the training tecniques clear.
We noticed a significant difference in her behaviour very quickly-although we are still working on it!

Jacquie was lovely. She made us feel comfortable during the session & explained everything to us in an easy to understand way. We were so pleased with the results & after one session can already see that our little Ellie is no longer the boss of the house. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone looking for a bit of extra help with their 4 legged family members.

Wow! What an amazingly quick result following Jacquie's easy instructions. I found her to be really friendly & helpful, with lots of good pratical advice. My dog isn't perfect yet, but we are certainly getting ther with Jacquie's help.
Thank You Jacquie!
1st November 2011Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie was very patient & understanding of our problem, never made us feel inadequate, listened to our troubles & found solutions. If first one didn't work she found us something else to try. Although Norman was only a puppy, he was very dominant & difficult. It took awhile but we got there in the end & he is a different dog, not perfect but well on the way!
I definately could not have done it without Jacquie & would recommend her without hesitation. She saved our sanity & Norman's life.
A lovely Bassett but only 5 months when I first visited Norman. He is always going to be work in progress, needing rules & boundaries. The vet had indicated that he would need some very expensive scans to find out what was happening, however what he needed was consistency, training & some extra nutrition.
5th July 2011Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
We couldn't believe the instant difference that the Bark Busters training made to our ability to control our 7 month old dog. The frantic cat chasing behaviours changed straight away & the training has been easy to carry out when necessary. However we have hardly seen any evidence of these behavious. I had told my family not to expect Bark Busters to be a magic wand, but now I am not so sure! Thank you Jacquie.
Super little dog, though the barking at the door & chasing the cats had become extremley stressful for the family. This behaviour was also greatly stressing the dog out, but now stress free dog & family!
26th June 2011Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
My dog is not as easy breed yet Jacquie's cleverley chosen techniques worked superbly.
I now have the dog that I knew I was meant to have!
This was a Canaan dog - a Middle Eastern dog originally used as flock & camp guardians, but also for tracking & sentry duties. They are extremley loyal companions, & like the Border Collie need leadership & mental stimulation.
Within a short time, we solved the problem behaviours, though recall always takes about 6/8 weeks to address. Beautiful dog & very committed owners, a joy to work with!

Very experinced trainer, patient & likeable. I was pleasantly surprised by the results after a few days of trying to be consistent & following the trainers advice.
