Kevin McDonnell dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called

We were very pleased with Kevin, who explained clearly the method, reasons and process. Benson responded well to the instructions but is a very strong willed 21 week old, 30kg, Newfoundland puppy. Kevin took into account that Benson had operations on both front legs only 2 weeks ago. Kevin left us written instructions to follow which are clear and assured us with work we should achieve the results we are looking for. Our visit was only yesterday and Benson is currently pushing back quite hard against the changes to his little life but Kevin is supporting us.

I felt the training was excellent and Kevin explained the techniques clearly. I have seen an immediate improvement with my two English Setter/Collie crosses and am confident that with practice they will improve even more. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kevin to others.

Incredible! In just one morning, Kevin showed me how to address and correct the behavioural issues that I'd been having with my dogs for over 3 years. It was so simple I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing and 4 days later, it is still working, Before contacting Kevin I had worked with 3 other dog behaviourists and read every book I could on how to address unwanted behaviour in dogs and nothing had worked. This simple training has quite literally given me back my life and given my dogs the stability they needed to be happy and relaxed dogs and achieve their real potential - thank you.

Before Kevin arrived to help with my two french bulldog crosses we were totally at our wits end with them and we were seriously considering finding a new home for my youngest dog, but then Kevin came to our house and he was amazing, by the time he left our house it was like having two new dogs, they were calm and settled, no longer charging at visitors or barking all of the time. We r still following the written instructions to keep up the training, we r so happy now our dogs no longer jump all over the sofa, they don't treat the whole house like their playground anymore, we don't have them sleeping in our room or on our bed anymore they now both sleep downstairs with no problems( something that I thought would never be possible) Even my husband has been really impressed and he actually enjoys the company of dogs now. If your having any problems with your dogs I would 100% recommend bark busters because it's worth every penny!!!

Brilliant! Couldn't believe the instant results. My dog and I are still working together using the training method and he's getting better every day. Kevin was a fantastic trainer. Everything was explained and he kept making sure we were happy with the results. Would highly recommend and excellent value for money. Walking my dog is now a pleasure.

Couldn`t be more pleased with the session with Kevin.We used Bark Busters 18 years ago in Australia and managed to sort out so many problems with our dogs at the time.

We are confident that the improved techniques shown to us today by Kevin will produce huge improvements in our handling of our dog.

Would highly recommend to anyone who is concerned about their dog. We have two young children with many visiting friends and needed to be able to stop our dog biting otherwise we would have to re home him. Kevin stopped him within 10 minutes with no aggression or treats. Kevin also gave us training on lead walking and how to teach him to come. Results on the day were amazing, We are continuing the training and hope our headstrong dog continues to respond.

Can not believe the difference one days training has made and we are continuing this following Kevin's instructions. My girls have been aggressive as they are frightened, pulled on the lead, barked at people and dogs as they walked passed and jumped up at me. It's early days but the response is remarkable. Beach test to come, but I feel so much more confident that they will mix well and be able to control them.
