3rd June 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
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.
1st June 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
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.
30th May 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
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.

Kevin made a big difference to Alfie's behaviour within a short time of being with us. Alfie is such a puller on the lead and this has been greatly helped by a collar bought from Bark Busters. Alfie (8month old Labrador x Springer Spaniel) has a wonderful temperament, but we just need to work on calming him down, Kevin gave us exercises to do this. Many thanks to Kevin.
30th April 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Using simple, easy to understand tasks and commands, we feel that Beau will adapt easily to his new training.
Beau reponded straight away to the training and has continued to develop well.
The lifetime support will come in handy should we face any new problems, especially with a baby on the way.
Would highly recommend Kevin and Bark Busters.
30th April 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We are extremely pleased with the training we received from Kevin, and cannot believe the remarkable change in them in just one day!
We would recommend Kevin's services to anyone who has dogs with behavioural issues.

Amazing, can not believe the difference in holly in such a short period of time, kevin was also amazing, very good at his job and very knowledgeable, it was lovely meeting him, and I cannot thank him enough, wished I had contacted him months ago. Would recommend kevin (Bark busters) to anyone with confidence. Thank you so much, I have a different dog, more confident, happier, and now a pleasure to own.
9th April 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Very happy with the training. We felt Kevin was very pleasant, professional and easy to work with and take instructions from. Very happy with the immediate results and with the techniques shown to us for dealing with Archie's issues. He made them easy to understand and put into action. Kevin went though everything thoroughly and clearly and made the whole experience enjoyable. We feel we now have the basis to go forward and have confidence to continue Archie's training using these techniques. Having tried several other trainers and behavioural therapists Kevin is the first one to have immediate effect simply and kindly.
