11th January 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin explained in a clear and concise way how to establish clear pack leadership through practical exercises. It was amazing how quickly Jessie responded. He showed us how to develop leadership at home and how this was fundamental to treating aggression towards other dogs outside. We now feel confident that we have a sound basis on which to continue training.

Kevin was great, he clearly gave us rules to follow, and what a difference iBarkley is on one visit. I was very stressed with my dog , but now is a lot calmer and enjoy him . Many thanks Kevin.

20th November 2013Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I sought Kevinâ€™s help as I felt I was not in control of my dogs and it was having a bad effect on family life. I had many issues to solve, dogs fighting, dog barking at door and noise, dog jumping up and mouthy biting, dog on couch, dog over excited when people come in the house, dog pulling badly on lead. Since Kevin's visit 3 weeks ago and continuous and ongoing training, I have had wonderful results in every area. My house is a calmer place now.
I would highly recommend Kevin. He is a very knowledgeable man who instills confidence in you. I felt he really cared and put me at ease. Huge thanks to you Kevin.
3rd November 2013Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Both my husband and I was extremely happy with the training we received from Kevin. Toby responded very quickly and was almost a different dog in under 24 hours. The techniques we were given was very easy to understand and to put into practice. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone who need's guidance with there canine friend. Kevin was very friendly and we would welcome him back into our home when he's next in the area.

Excellent! So helpful, reassuring and nothing was too much trouble. I've learnt so much already, my dogs have responded very well and we are well on the way to being a happy family again!
25th October 2013Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Training benson today was absolutely brilliant, Kevin explained and showed everything to us thoroughly. After only a few hours we had amazing results without any physical contact at all. We started with a very dominant dog who was constantly trying to be the leader of the pack and have finished with a calm submissive dog that's following commands that he never did before. Very, very happy and looking forward to the future with our dog. Worth every penny.

It was utterly amazing, both my husband and I felt that for the first time we are able to communicate with our dogs.
12th September 2013Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We decided to contact Bark Busters for our 11 year old dog Gizmo. We rescued him two years ago, although fabulous around people he was always aggressive around dogs. This got to the point where I was scared of taking him out especially with our eight month old son. After Kevin had been here for 10 minutes I knew we had made the right decision- he put us completely at ease and took us through what would happen and it all made complete sense! After a few hours of training Gizmo was socialising in the field with other dogs (my heart was racing!)
Wen I walk Gizmo now I feel confident and in control which I realise I never felt before. I am taking things slowing and building up our confidence with other dogs however it had changed our lives already. Gizmo no longer barks in the house an when we come home and is a very obedient dog now (and we are only 4 days in!)
Thank you Kevin!
