What our Clients are saying about us
We called Linda in to help us with our two Springers. We had received complaints of barking whilst we were out and wanted help to make sure our dogs were not getting distressed. As owners, we were very anxious at the thought of our dogs being anxious. Linda spent nearly 3 hours with us explaining the concepts of separation anxiety, leadership, consistency and even diet! We can not praise Linda enough as we have noticed instant changes in our dogs, we changed their diet after researching raw feeding and never see an unfinished meal! They seem much more relaxed and happy, as are we, and the barking is no longer an issue. Linda and the Bark Busters team are absolute miracle workers and our friends and family have also benefited from some of the techniques we were taught. We have since emailed Linda for advice and she contacted us in straight away. This was the greatest investment we could have made for our dogs and when people seemed surprised at the cost, our answer was, we would not think twice about spending the money on them if they were physically unwell, so why should it be any different for their mental health! Thank you for everything!D.G., Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire23rd April 2014

Absolutely amazed at the results achieved by Linda in just one visit and worth every penny. Do not hesitate to contact Barkbusters if you have behavioural problems with your dog. I spent months and hundreds of pounds trying to get Archie to walk to heel, he constantly pulled and jumped at people passing by. We literally had Archie walking to heel overnight and his overall behaviour is so much better. Linda is a lovely lady and has a real connection with dogs, she put us at ease and her instructions are clear and so simple.
Archie is a beautiful Boxer and so eager to learn. We still have some training to do and I am so looking forward to our already planned revisit in a couple of weeks.

Linda came to help with puppy management, summer is only 10weeks old but has started biting as all puppy’s do but I was having problems stopping her. Linda explained the correction procedure and after Summer finally woke up I had chance to try it out. So far it has been very successful and I am very pleased with the outcome. Thanks Linda and looking forward to socialising summer with Oliver.

Linda was excellent. She has great diagnostic skills and immediately realised what Sidney's needs were. She explained what she was doing and why she was doing it. Leaving me a sheet of what I needed to do was really helpful. Sidney responded very well and was a different dog after two hours. I felt as if I had a weight lifted off my shoulders. I was extremely impressed with her.She has already got another customer through my recommendation.
What a lovely dog Sidney is and a rescue too. So lovely to see him in his new home and being cared for so well. He just needs a little 'fine tuning' and with the Bark Busters years support he and his owner will receive this. We have already made our revisit appointment which I am so looking forward to. Well done Sidney (and his Mum too of course).

Linda was lovely. Tommy loved her and for a youngster he is doing well no jumping up now and still learning getting better each day. We are so pleased.
Tommy was so eager to learn and he has great 'teachers' in his owners. I must admit to wanting to tuck him into my bag and 'steal' him away he was so cute.
Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire

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.
