Jo was very patient with Hollie,it is a difficult problem noise phobia we have to help her with, so it will take a while to see results. Everything was explained and shown when needed. Nothing felt rushed. I could see Hollie felt relaxed around Jo which helps. I saw Hollie sitting in the garden something which she had not done for a while which was great to see.

Very enjoyable and educational. Meeka was responsive to Graham, but in some areas will not respond to me. French bulldog with a stubborn attitude!. The lesson flew by and i was pleased with Meekas performance on the whole, thanks to Grahams expertise. With grahams help,hopefully Meeka will become a dog to be proud of.

Jo helped me with my very active and rather naughty puppy, Hawley. Before Jo's visit, I had to wear knee high boots in the house to protect my feet, ankles and calves. Nothing seemed to work to stop him attacking my feet etc as I walked around my kitchen. I have been barefoot in my house since Jo's visit. Jo is incredibly helpful (she goes above and beyond responding quickly to email queries and such like), extremely non judgmental and genuinely just wants to help you to achieve a happy and rewarding relationship with your dog. I would recommond Jo's services highly.

I was at the end of my tether with the our Spaniel puppy, trying to juggle jobs and a child and didn't seem to be able to get Oreo to settle down and listen. Total situation of the puppy running the house and me etc, so I decided I needed help as I was close to giving up and I really didn't want to do that. Graham came round and listened, observed and chatted and started a education regime. I could already see the change in Oreo in these hours and I felt we had turned a corner and with Graham's support and assistance we can do this. Graham was so helpful and calming and basically was the helping hand I needed, I had hit the brick wall and rather than enjoying the puppy it was total stress, 2 weeks on the difference in Oreo can be seen, we still have things to work on but I feel positive now that this can be achieved.

Really comprehensive and useful. The "watch me" now works to perfection!

Jo has always been patient and understanding about each of my dogs. She spent a lot of time helping my dogs deal with sibling rivalry and showed me great techniques to use with my large breed puppy. The one to one time was so successful that I now have 3 well-behaved dogs who love spending time together and are a pleasure to take out. I would highly recommend Jo as she takes the time to get to know both you and your dog and successfully plans ways to deal with their unique personalities.

Jo spent a long time discussing the issues with both Betty & Rizla, she suggested many different techniques which we are currently still working on.
We do not know what had upset Betty and we appreciate that we have to take the process slowly, but are feeling positive that we will now have a happy outcome.
We understand that we can contact Jo if we have any ongoing concerns and will keep her updated on our progress

We were really pleased with Jo, she was helpful and friendly and didn't judge us at all. She understood our two dogs (Jack Russell brothers from the same litter, aged 2) perfectly and explained things to us in an easy way to understand. To our surprise, most of the things she recommended to us, were changes that we could implement in our house. She also showed us how to do some basic training and took the time to take them out for a walk too. We have been able to make some of the changes already, and have noticed a difference in our dogs behaviour. The most important thing for us though, was that Jo really helped us to understand why the dogs behaved in certain ways and what was going through their heads. This made us feel more confident that we would be able to help them become happier and more content with each other. Thank you very much Jo.

We approached Bark Busters as initially we were concerned that Oscar our 7 year old Yorkshire Terrier was growling at our adult daughter if she came into the room. He was also jumping up at visitors and barking whenever anyone came into the home or walked past in his view. We called Jo for further help when my husband retired and Oscar became anxious when left on his own. Jo helped us to understand why he was behaving in this way and how we could address the issues. We have noticed a marked improvement and Oscar (and my daughter!) are now much happier.
