17th March 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda has just returned for her second visit. Our dog is under a year old and in her 'terrible teens'. We didn't realise what a good job she was doing of training us, especially regarding passive dominance! Pulling on the lead was our worst issue, if we hadn't seen it with our own eyes we wouldn't have believed that a new collar and key word would make such a difference after only one session.
Today we worked on recall. Linda persevered despite other dogs, children, rain etc, so that we were in no doubt how to proceed. It's nice to see training not based on food/clickers etc. Being mean!!
The collar mentioned is our own Bark Busters communication collar and this dog responded so well to the way in which we use it, she was walking by their side after only a few minutes of tuition. Clever girl.

I am so pleased with how Barry is doing. I cannot believe the way he's changed. He was so aggressive towards visitors and other dogs. Now he's so well behaved we can enjoy our walks so much more.
2nd February 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
From Linda's very first visit to see Alfie we saw an instant change. The new 'BAH' word works wonders, even our close family have commented on how good he is. Now he is allowed to go and visit my parents house!
21st January 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was very calm and thorough. She inspired me to be confident about helping Archie overcome his issues with loud noises and other dogs.
I am looking forward to further sessions with Linda to help me progress with getting the best possible outcome for Archie.
13th December 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Really pleased with training received so far. Great results in a short time.
8th September 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda is very friendly and gave us good advice which we are trying to implement. It has only been two and a half weeks since her visit and everything is improving greatly.
31st August 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Everything that we tried with Linda was explained in detail about why it was done that way and what could be achieved from doing the training that way. She gave us some very important information that we didn't know could affect the dogs, for example their diet and their behaviour. In the first session the bond between the family and the puppies grew stronger and has been as we continue these methods of training. We really like the correcting not punishing that Bark Busters promotes. Really enjoyed the first session with Linda and we are all looking forward to the next one ... even the pups are.
1st July 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Having tried both our dogs at group training sessions, which had little effect on either dog, we searched for a one to one trainer via the internet and found Linda's name. After only one session and following Linda's advice on dietary requirements we have noticed a profound change in both dogs, for the better I may add. I would most definitely recommend Bark Busters. I am satisfied completely and wish I had been aware of Bark Busters at an earlier stage.
28th June 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was so helpful and a brilliant person to deal with. We have been delighted at the response of our dog to the advice given. Things are working out really well.
We were especially pleased with the way Linda made herself available to help us at times convenient for us.
Ginnie absolutely loved her!
Ginnie's owner is an avid gardener and was finding it frustrating having to shut Ginnie away whilst she was gardening as Ginnie barked when outside in the garden which was also annoying the neighbours. With some consistent training owner and dog can now be outside together with patio doors open so everyone can enjoy the lovely summer weather in peace. Good girl Ginnie.
24th May 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
I am amazed, from the very first meeting with Linda I now have my unruly young dog under control using very simple methods with no aggressive or physical contact.
He is walking to heel and his behaviour is so much calmer. I feel like I've got a new dog. He is wonderful and I can see a great future for us all with Ted.
I am keeping up with all her methods and looking forward to our next meeting where we will be tackling any aggression he has with other dogs.
I am so pleased and relieved I called Bark Busters. I am now the leader and Ted is happy to be one of the pack!
I met up with Ted and his owner on 10th June and took along my dog Holly to see his reaction to her. His behaviour is now excellent and he did not challenge her whatsoever so now walks are more of a pleasure for the whole family. Well done Ted.
