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!

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.

I needed help with Murphy as he was barking at other dogs and people. He was a very anxious dog. I can't believe the change in him in under a week. After trying every training method both from online research and training sessions I can honestly say Barkbusters is the only thing that's helped me with Murphy. Ted has also benefitted, no jumping up on the sofa! I didn't think Murphy would be in the field playing with other dogs and although he's not perfect yet as it's only been a week, I believe in a few weeks he will be. Thank you very much to Kevin.

Kevin McDonnell dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Toileting

The result of the training was absolutely amazing. My dog, Simba, who I thought was totally out of control and beyond training, responded with alacrity and showed no sign of resentment at having his "cock of the walk" position removed. On the contrary, as I remarked to the Bark Busters trainer, Simba fell asleep on return to the house and seemed more relaxed than I'd ever seen him. I now understand that he was relieved to have the "leader of the , pack" burden taken away from him and he could now let me, "the human" take the responsibility for our wellbeing. I'm very surprised that Bark Busters is such a commercial secret.

Kevin was incredible. He helped with every aspect i mentioned that I had a problem with. He was very patient and was happy to repeat anything. I felt so confident when he left and it was lovely to know that if i get any problems i can just contact him again over email and he will call me. I learnt so much and this has helped with day to day life. Thank you so much.

Excellent! Kevin explained everything very clearly, especially what we want to achieve and how we would do it. The starting exercise was very revealing and I was happy that we had done the right thing in calling in Kevin. It will take a while to get Rosie to not growl and jump at other dogs, but it was great to realise that she's not aggressive, just over-excited. We finished the session with a free running exercise on Dartmoor and it did my heart good to be able to let Rosie run like the lurcher she is, in fact she didn't stop smiling! Kevin left us with some simple reinforcing homework which we intend to do. Our main ambition was to be able to allow Rosie to go off lead and enjoy herself running around without us panicking that she wouldn't come back. All in all, a very successful session, thank you Kevin for all your help!
