Before Kevin arrived to help with my two french bulldog crosses we were totally at our wits end with them and we were seriously considering finding a new home for my youngest dog, but then Kevin came to our house and he was amazing, by the time he left our house it was like having two new dogs, they were calm and settled, no longer charging at visitors or barking all of the time. We r still following the written instructions to keep up the training, we r so happy now our dogs no longer jump all over the sofa, they don't treat the whole house like their playground anymore, we don't have them sleeping in our room or on our bed anymore they now both sleep downstairs with no problems( something that I thought would never be possible) Even my husband has been really impressed and he actually enjoys the company of dogs now. If your having any problems with your dogs I would 100% recommend bark busters because it's worth every penny!!!

Brilliant! Couldn't believe the instant results. My dog and I are still working together using the training method and he's getting better every day. Kevin was a fantastic trainer. Everything was explained and he kept making sure we were happy with the results. Would highly recommend and excellent value for money. Walking my dog is now a pleasure.

Couldn`t be more pleased with the session with Kevin.We used Bark Busters 18 years ago in Australia and managed to sort out so many problems with our dogs at the time.

We are confident that the improved techniques shown to us today by Kevin will produce huge improvements in our handling of our dog.

Would highly recommend to anyone who is concerned about their dog. We have two young children with many visiting friends and needed to be able to stop our dog biting otherwise we would have to re home him. Kevin stopped him within 10 minutes with no aggression or treats. Kevin also gave us training on lead walking and how to teach him to come. Results on the day were amazing, We are continuing the training and hope our headstrong dog continues to respond.

Can not believe the difference one days training has made and we are continuing this following Kevin's instructions. My girls have been aggressive as they are frightened, pulled on the lead, barked at people and dogs as they walked passed and jumped up at me. It's early days but the response is remarkable. Beach test to come, but I feel so much more confident that they will mix well and be able to control them.

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 McDonnell dealt with: Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Separation Anxiety

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.
