9th August 2017

Kevin McDonnell 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

We were a bit sceptical about what could be achieved with our completely untrained, and very dominant little terrier. Her response to the training was unbelievable. Kevin is an excellent trainer (of people and dogs!), he was very clear and patient. He helped us understand what the problem was and gave us very simple tools to fix it. We are thrilled to have a totally different dog on our hands, and wish we'd called him sooner!!

We were both very happy with the training that Kevin provided and noticed an immediate improvement in our dogs behaviour. We were pleased that he worked with us in the home, in the car and when out walking the dogs which covered all of our areas of concern. We are now hoping that this improvement will be maintained long term.

Kevin listened to what we had to say and explained clearly what was needed, was patient with Lola who was (past tense) quite hyper, jumping up and barking at literally anything or anyone that was nearby, within the hour she was completely different and 2 weeks later is still quite relaxed with no barking, cant fault the information, training given, now a pleasure to go out for a walk

Kevin's training session was excellent. He explained the reasons behind my dogs behaviour in a clear, informative and easy to understand way. He had a calm approach that helped to put us at ease and reassured us that our dogs behavioural issues could be addressed, and through the exercises undertaken we immediately saw a significant improvement in our dog, and were able to take her to our local park taking her off lead for the first time in many months. I would happily recommend Kevin to anyone looking for help with their dog.

We had been at our wits end and then Kevin came along...

Fantastic! He put us at ease and after assessing the dogs, guided us through the training process. We have seen instant results and as a result we are over the moon with the progress being made by the dogs. The same evening as the training, friends came to visit us and asked if we had the same dogs. Bark Busters works, without a doubt. Simple and painless, putting you back at the head of the pack. We cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Kevin, from all of us!

Kevin was not only professional but also pleasant. He made the training session easy to understand and follow. We were amazed at how quickly Pluto picked things up and the change was remarkable. We were able to follow Kevin's guidance through the training session and with some practice over the coming weeks we should all be able to enjoy life together under the correct hierarchy.

Thank you Kevin, you were amazing.

I cannot believe how well our puppy responded to Kevin. He is calmer and hopefully if we continue like he is now he will be safe for his lifetime. I am a huge softy and love that it is voice control. Rufus has had fun on his walks and is already beginning to ignore cars. Abbi says a big thank you too she no longer has a bouncy puppy hanging on her ruff!
