Kevin McDonnell dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

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.

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.

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.

Kevin was not only fantastic at training our dog, he was also excellent at training us to enable her to be a well behaved, obedient and happy dog. We cannot recommend Kevin highly enough to anyone who is in need of an excellent dog behaviourist.

We would definitely recommend Kevin and the bark busters techniques. He explained the process really well and took us through everything we needed to do. We feel there have been changes already and are confident that Hugo will continue to improve.
