Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Separation Anxiety

Linda really is lovely and was patient with me aswell as Spud during our first session! Spud is a rescue staffie who was overly hyper, dog aggressive and loved to jump up at people and pull on the lead. We saw a change in Spud immediately and a week after our first session he now walks like a dream (99.9% of the time!) - He's stopped jumping up at me when I come in the door, tripping me up on the stairs, he has calmed down a massive amount and is much more obedient. Probably most importantly we can now already walk past another dog without a big display of aggressive behaviour - and this is after a week. He will sit and wait patiently for a treat instead of snatching, and can be in a separate room from me now without becoming upset. He's got a way to go yet but with Linda's help we already have a happier, healthier pet and he's learning now that the boss is me, not him! Thanks so much Linda and really looking forward to seeing you again.

Linda was very friendly and helpful. She was calm and confident and taught us how to respond more effectively to Barney. We have been practising what we were told and have seen a big difference in some of his behaviours. We will need some more lessons and some more advice, but thank you so far.

We found Linda a very nice lady we felt really comfortable with her. Explained everything really well so we could understand what she wanted us to do and it made sense.It is good knowing you have help if you need it at the end of a phone line. Thank you Linda and Barkbusters.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks

Linda was brilliant! I felt at ease talking with her. Buddy responded first time to her, with door manners, and then first time to me, I was absolutely gobsmacked! My husband was shocked when he came home from work, and buddy stayed still while I opened the door and he didn't get jumped all over. The hardest thing is changing our approach, but so far so good. Am looking forward to training when out walking. Linda was fantastic can't praise her enough! Thank you so much Linda.

Trainer note from Linda:
Buddy is such a great dog and so easy to work with, although I did think I might have had my work cut out on first meeting him! Such a beautiful boy and one his owners can be so proud of. Looking forward to working with him at a later date. Well done Buddy.

Linda is a lovely lady, friendly, explained things clearly. She encouraged us with advice and little tips she uses with her own dog and when she left we felt confident and more relieved that we made the right decision to get some help. We covered our pet on the lifetime cover and Linda is going to be visiting us quite often in the future until we get our Labrador Eddie back on the right track again. Linda assured us we would get the help we need for as long as we need it.

Trainer note from Linda:
I have already made a second visit to Eddie taking my own dog to help with Eddie's fear of walking out of his cul de sac since a loud firework frightened him. We managed a lovely long walk with Eddie following us with his owners for over a mile. Fairy steps are needed until Eddie feels more confident in this area. It's going to take time and patience.

Excellent first visit. Immediate results. Instructions to be followed were very clear. Was lovely to have somebody who genuinely knows what she is taking about. We look forward to further training.

Linda was great, she explained what we needed to do to address the issues we were having and more importantly why we needed to do it! We saw a difference in Frank before she left and training is going well. Obviously this is ongoing but our dog is much calmer, especially walking on the lead (great harness) and barking is easier to control. We are looking forward to the next session for recall training.

Linda taught us so much, we now have a wonderful well behaved dog that we can take anywhere without having to worry about his behaviour. Our dog Fergus is an absolute joy thanks to Linda even though he still has that boxer personality and we wouldn't want it any other way. Thank you Linda big kiss from Fergus x

Trainer note from Linda:
Fergus is by far the most handsome Boxer I've met (sorry Oliver but he is)! And such a joy to work with. His owners listened and followed my instructions and now they have a well mannered Boxer which they are proud to take away on holiday with them. Thank you for entrusting his training to me.
