Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Jo was the first behaviourist that I talked to and immediately knew through our first phone conversation that she was the trainer for us. Bella was displaying typical guarding behaviour and was making home life disruptive and walks a chore. From the very first session I was amazed at the change in my dog. Not only are most of our issues resolved, she is happier to be led and more settled in her new role. Jo was superb and I cannot praise her highly enough. She helped us understand our dog and our lives have been transformed. Even those sceptical of the ability to change Bella are converted!

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This owner sought help as her sister was moving back home to have her baby and there were general concerns about Bella and her behaviour especially as she wasn't keen on new people in the home. Bella has responded really well to the training and is now a joy to be around. She was happy to give up her guarding and to simply enjoy life with her family. The best result being that the family can look forward to their new arrival and not worry about Bella and her behaviour.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Hyperactivity Puppy Management

Excellent service and detailed attention to our problems.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This labrador puppy was very hyperactive and was constantly biting and nipping both the owners and their 5 year old daughter. She responded very well to training and was happy to have the new house rules to be put in place.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

I am very pleased with the training session. I feel Jo has given me confidence to take control of my dogs. Her advice about Kaisers hearing was particularly useful as I had not realised he had some hearing difficulties.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This owner has 2 German Shepherds that are generally well trained, however their occasional rivalry caused problems when going out. The root of the problem was the older dog setting the younger dog off, but it proved that Kaisers lack of obedience was more due to the fact that he couldn\'t hear instructions properly which made it difficult for the owner to calm him down. This has now been tackled and I am confident that this owner will overcome his problems.

Jo discussed our issues and provided training which has been simple to follow and instantly effective. This has made the lives of us and our dog happier and much more manageable. I would highly recommend the services provided by Jo.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This German Shepherd listened to his owners when he felt like it and as he was such a big dog he used his size to get away with many things. As soon as he realised that his behaviour wouldn't be tolerated he learned very rapidly and has now become an obedient dog that is a delight to be around.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Hyperactivity Toileting

I have 2 dogs of my own and I also foster dogs. Jo helped me with issues with the fosters aggression and dominance. She responded really well and I now know how to spot the behaviour changes. I also had problems with one of my dogs, Max. He woke me up every night to go to the toilet and if I didn\'t he would wee. By using the techniques and changes in the house within 2 nights I stopped being woken up. I can\'t tell you how much if meant to get a decent nights sleep after 4 years.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This lady is an experienced dog fosterer who took in an emergency foster dog after major surgery. This dog was terrified and tried to protect herself by trying to take charge in the house and rule her other 2 dogs. She has done an amazing job settling this foster dog in and has used to the techniques to give her own dog confidence. She is skilled with general dog training and just needed to know how to do the behavioural therapy part of it. This has been applied very successfully.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Puppy Management

Jo was fantastic, so helpful and explained everything fully. 2 weeks on I have a puppy being good and listening to us. Also he enjoys his training responding every time. Thanks Jo for your time and great knowledge, you have been so helpful.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This puppy is a gorgeous Hungarian Vizla who was very bouncy and seemingly full of confidence, but could throw his owners by being little anxious at times. He had had a lot of sickness and diarrhoea to start with and had needed quite a few vet visits to sort him out. This put back his training, but once his owners got going he blossomed into the most lovely, obedient dog who is a credit to his family.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Puppy Management

Jo was very helpful and thorough. By the time she left we already saw a change in Toby.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This lovely Yorkshire Terrier puppy came to his owners with Kennel cough and needed a lot of care and attention from the start. He was typical of many puppies who suffer from separation anxiety and needed his owners to make him feel secure and happy in his new home. He has come on in leaps and bounds and his owners have done a fantastic job with their first dog.

Absolutely amazed at how quick the training worked. We only had 2 session to cover her problems and she really is a different dog. Thanks

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This Staffordshire Bull Terrier became very aggressive with other dogs after she was attacked and badly injured herself. Her owners became scared to take her out. She is actually a lovely natured dog and her aggression was her purely trying to protect herself. The work done by her owners mean that she now knows her owners will protect her. She is a delight in the house and has become much calmer so they can take her out without worrying about her snarling and lunging.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Puppy Management

I contacted Bark Busters to give me some tips and techniques to enable me to train my two puppies. Jo was very knowledgeable regarding breed types and was able to give me training tips for both my Toy Poodle and Boston Terrier.

She worked with me showing me a variety of simple but very useful techniques to use with my dogs and the supportive written information she left with me will enable me to keep focussed now I am on my own again.

The session has given me confidence and I intend to continue using the Bark Busters information to ensure I end up with two beautiful and well behaved dogs.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This lady went to buy a Boston Terrier and also came home with a Toy Poodle who has a physical disability. This meant that she has had double the work, plus has had to adapt for a puppy that cannot run and walk as most puppies do. She is the perfect owner for both these pups as she is organised and determined to do the best by her pups by going the extra mile. I am confident that she will have the two beautiful and well behaved dogs that she wants.

Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

I have had outstanding results with both of my dogs. Madison my Jack Russell is showing a lot less aggression to my family and the other animals. My cat had to be caged when she was about and I can now let them out together. I also had issues with barking with both dogs when people passed the window with or without dogs. Jo has taught me how to control them and now we no longer have issues with this any more. There are a few issues remaining but obviously there was never going to be a quick fix for everything so I am working with Jo to overcome these. I have been a Vet Nurse for about 5 years and am always encouraging my clients to ask for behaviourist advice. I regret not asking for help sooner but am so pleased that I did.

Trainer note from Jo & Graham:
This Veterinary Nurse had been told to put her Jack Russell Madison down because of the aggression to humans and other animals. Her and her family couldn't bear to do this and put up with 6 years of Madison having a go at them and visitors. They have done a wonderful job making her Jack Russell and her Chihuahua much more happy and secure and it is a delight to see the progress made in such a short time.
