29th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was really good, very patient and non judgmental. We got instant results for our very reactive border terrier which we couldn't believe and the techniques are easy to understand and execute.
26th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I was amazed at how quickly Roxy changed. Kevin our therapist was friendly and it felt as though we had known him a long time. There was loads of encouragement from him. I would highly recommend Kevin.
25th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I have to say that the service I recieved from Kevin was nothing short of brilliant. I did not realise that he could get the behaviour of my 8 year old staffy to change so dramatically in such a short time. After sticking to the training regime for the first week or so Keith has become a totally different dog and is a lot more relaxed and happy as a result.

Kevin - what can I say!?!?! You are amazing - I had a few niggly bits that I had with my 14 month old Collie, Noodles, and within the 4 hours you spent with us - they have been nipped in the bud! I was stunned at the instant transformation with him and me. We now have a much better and calmer relationship between us, as it should be! Though Noodles has needed training, I also needed training to train him and you showed/helped me with sincere compassion and respect. I have contacted you since our meeting and was amazed at the quick and helpful response from yourself. I would (and have already) recommended you to my fellow dog owners. Anyone who is reading this who feel they need help - Kevin is your man!!
15th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was both professional and understanding, making an instant impact on our dogs' behaviour, even to the extent of being able to accept another dog into our home. He has given us clear instructions on how to proceed with our problems and we have already experienced significant changes on our afternoon walk following the lengthy and detailed session.
5th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We were impressed with the professional, experienced approach from Kevin McDonnell. We liked the fact that the dog was looked at as an individual and that no treats or punishments were recommended in helping correct his behaviour, instead the techniques used were acceptable and effective. We have already noted an improvement in Lincoln's behaviour.
2nd March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I was absolutely amazed with Kevin's traning techniques. It was a lovely experience seeing my dogs learn so quickly and calmly . I would recommend bark busters to people in the future & I was very happy with Kevin McDonnell. Just after one day my dogs are doing what I want them to do and that is making my life so much easier. I'm thrilled .. It was worth every penny!
1st March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin arrived on time, his training was very clear and gave me confidence to use the techniques he told us about. I love my dog but he was a real handful. Kevin has made us realise we were causing a lot of the problems and now we feel confident to manage the behaviours as they arise.
25th February 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was very approachable and very friendly. He spent a lot of time explaining the reason for our dog's behaviour and we were able to go through all of the habits that were troubling us. His methods were easy to understand but very effective and Charlie was already showing signs of improvements despite his stubborn nature. With more practice we hope to see a continued improvement. Highly recommended and hopefully will change our life!!
25th January 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We recently rehomed Tye, our 8 year old staffie who had a few issues such as jumping up and pulling on the lead, especially towards other dogs which meant we were always wary. Upon meeting Kevin, he explained that Tye was simply excited to meet the other dogs and not wanting to hurt them, which in turn has made us more relaxed. Kevin taught us some simple but very effective techniques which worked almost immediately. We were initially cautious about how effective the training would be. However, there was no need to be as Tye is now a completely different dog after just 3 hours. We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone considering a trainer!
