Dear little Mia was a rehomed dog. She kept barking at people and other dogs constantly especially when taking her out for walks. It became quite stressful. After Kevin's presentation and training us both at home we took Mia for a walk with Kevin and his dogs ,what a difference ! we are on the second day of training now a long way to go but Mia seems to know what we expect of her already.
Many thanks Kevin

We could not recommend Kevin enough. Max appeared to be an aggressive dog, and taking him out for a walk was a nightmare! Often we would try to avoid other dogs for fear it would set Max off. This all changed from the moment we met Kevin and he explained where we were going wrong. From the months following Kevin's visit Max is now a different dog and thanks to Kevin we can enjoy taking Max out, without fear of him growling or barking at any dogs we encounter.

Amazing! I am so very grateful. My JRT Bondi responded very quickly to the training and I found it very simple and easy to follow. Thank you very much.

What an amazing difference! We now know how to give our dog a better happier life. He has quickly learned he is not top dog and because of that doesn't bark and growl all the time. He seems far more contented as a amember of our pack and is now happy to follow our lead. We will keep using the simple rules Kevin gave us and believe all our lives are better for it.

Kevin was very professional, confident he could teach us how to work with our dogs. Over a week later we have two well-behaved dogs! On the day, I was simply amazed at how effective Kevin's methods were - Millie got it immediately, Monty needed a little more time to get that he was loved, but he was not top dog in our house!
It is unbelievable, the difference Kevin has made, and how we have sustained that difference. Thank you - life changing!

5th March 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We were throughly impressed with our session with Kevin. He is extremely knowledgable and everything was explained fully to us. I didn't imagine the dogs would show changes so quickly it's amazing! Highly recommend for anyone who feels they need some direction and wants simple and easy achievable training. Was also lovely to meet Russell and Bruno. Thanks Kevin!
23rd February 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I was amazed at the very quick response. both dogs responded immediately and they are so much more responsive. Our walks are a lot more enjoyable than they were as the pulling was hard to control as they were competing against each other now they walk to heel and side by side it is great :) The barking is a lot less as is the jumping up and recall is getting better, so much more enjoyable all round, so thank you Kevin (trainer) and Bark Busters.

Really good. Got to the root cause of Brucie's problems. I've noticed a remarkable difference in his calmness since.

We found Kevin McDonnell to be very knowledgeable. The advice was given in stages that were clear & informative & he also explained the reasons behind the behaviour rather than just the answers to the problems which enables you to correct the issues with the knowledge behind the problem.
Can't recommend highly enough it has been money well spent with a huge improvement even on day one.
