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.
13th April 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Bertie started sleeping through the night after two years of failing to do so! The techniques were straight forward and easy to adopt. I'm really pleased with the results.
2nd April 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
From Lindas first visit we saw a great improvement in Holly and our own confidence. She is continuing to improve and Linda is always on hand for help. We are looking forward to a bright and happy family, thanks to Linda.

27th March 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Very impressive. Linda was very approachable and efficient, easy to relate to. Techniques were quickly assimilated by the dogs and they continue to respond well. Thanks.
Sigglesthorne, Nr Hornsea
23rd February 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda's technique instantly proved successful with 'door bell' barking. Our discussion and subsequent walks proved her method works (anxiety with other dogs) (post trauma behaviour). Pippas confidence is returning already along with that of her owner! I now have the correct skills and am confident, with Linda's guidance, to regain a happy, confident, best friend. Sincere thanks.
Poor Pippa had been attacked by another much larger dog whilst out walking with her owner, it distressed her and her owner so that walking was becoming very stressful for both of them. Now they both are gaining confidence to face the outside world stress free once again.
Howden, East Yorkshire
22nd February 2011Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Deefer was showing signs of aggression towards men and other dogs. He was also pulling on his lead and naughty in the flat (jumping on visitors, barking out the window). After the first session we noticed an immediate change in behaviour and once his diet was altered he calmed down so much.
After the second session we have both been able to go to our local park and with the use of Bark Busters training techniques he has now rallied to other dogs which he doesn't know and which we haven't been able to do for nearly a year.
Our 'little boy' is now a pleasure to be around and it is all thanks to Linda at Bark Busters for her advice, patience and understanding. Can't wait for our next session.
