Fantastic! instant results. everything was explained to us and the reasons why. we were then shown how it works in practice, and then taught how to do it ourselves. my mother is now feeling really confident and relaxed with George. it is nice to have it all written down to refer to and to know that kevin is at the end of the phone if needed. we are both very happy! thank you so much!

Kevin came to help us with the issues that my two dogs had and I told him my dream was to walk both my dogs down the beach with all the others dogs and not need to worry. I didnt think this was going to be possible but Kevin worked with them both and they responded really well. We even managed to walk them both down the beach off lead with all the other dogs and they loved it.

I would recommend Kevin to help train your dogs. His way of training works very quickly.

I also did the Covered for life guarentee so that I can contact him if I have anymore concerns throughout their lifes.

Flabbergasted! The change was very nearly instant even if Dolly did seem "shell shocked". I am sure that we can keep up the training of both ourselves and Dolly to all of our benefits.

Dyson responded well to the training and we found the instructions easy to follow and carry out! Kevin made the session fun whilst dealing with our problems in a calm relaxed way.

Our dog is a lot calmer and most of his annoying habits have already improved. We just need to maintain and practice the exercises consistently. Many thanks to Kevin for building up our confidence and helping us train Dyson. It is good to know that we are able to contact him for any advice in the future.

Kevin was absolutely super. He has shown us as a family how to talk to our dogs in a way they understand. His presention was a real eye opener. Our dogs were ruling the roost now we are able to take back control. I have already recommended Kevin and I recommend him highly to anyone with dog behavioural problems.

We found Kevin's approach very effective and remarkably quick to take effect. The training is more about training owners to communicate in dog's language and our dog understood quickly what was wanted of him.

I was very nervous about the training at first but Kevin put us at ease and quickly made us realise that we had made the right decision to call for help with Max. We were having problems with Max being aggressive with strangers, especially at the door and being overprotective with me. He also had issues with recall and pulling on the lead. Kevin showed us how to encourage Max to look at us as pack leaders, relax more and listen to us. Within a very short time Max calmed down, listened and looked to us for direction. Thank you so much Kevin for your help!

Amazing, I was astounded at the results I witnessed in the session. My dogs responded immediately to the training & it has had a huge impact on their behaviour already.

I would highly recommend Bark Busters as they

"Do what it says on the tin," so to speak.

Thank you :)

I cant believe the difference in Poppy after just one session. Kevin made

the training fun and informative and Poppy was very responsive.

Even my teenage Son enjoyed the training and said that it has made

Poppy a more relaxed dog. Kevin helped us to stop her from barking

at dogs passing her in our neighbourhood, something we thought we might not be able to cure. As poppy was a rescue she has done really well and we are very proud of her - Thank you Kevin for making Poppy a more relaxed and enjoyable dog, we shall continue with the exercises you have left us and would

recommend your training to anyone who is having difficulties with their dog.
