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.

Trainer note from Linda:
I have revisited a couple of times and when Edie had some trouble with her ears she reverted back a little and was uncomfortable with being handled. So after some advice given to her owners I received this lovely email.

Just thought I would send you an update on Edie. We are really pleased with her, we made sure we followed your advice to the letter and the whole family have been brilliant too and have consistently followed the advice you gave, which is great. Like you said with patience her behaviour would change and it has. You can see Edie is less wary when we touch her head and I was able without even a grumble from her, administer her ear drops. She is now back to her beautiful, mischievous, playful self.

We can play and take toys away without any problem. We continually play and teach her new games to keep her stimulated and happy. She learned very quickly to not go on the settee when we are on it, or the beds, and now will happily go to lie in her own bed. We are also keeping with the house rule, if Edie is asleep we don't disturb her and her bed is her space, her safe space where she can be left alone. This seems to be working very well. Thank you again for your advice, I just wanted you to see the positive impact it has had on our little Edie.

I was thrilled with their results. Well done to Edie's owners.

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.

Linda arrived promptly to our first session, she was absolutely lovely and I saw an instant difference in my dogs. I was a bit nervous as my dogs have quite a few behavioural traits to overcome but it didn't phase Linda in the slightest. We have started with the excessive barking and Minnies pulling and aggression while on a lead. Everyone has said what a difference they can see already and now walking Minnie is a pleasure. Very excited to start recall on the next session. I can't thank or recommend Linda and bark busters enough.

We concentrated on boundary work within the house, Lola jumping up/nudging for attention and Poppies barking. Both dogs as a whole appear to be quieter and the boundary work is coming along nicely - they both respond to the BAH sound instantly and Poppy is much less vocal at people who walk past the house!

My biggest concern is how Poppy acts when out walking, she barks at other dogs and people - the first day following her training she seemed to be much calmer (must have still been chilled out) but this seems to be wearing off, I didn't expect her to be a reformed dog after just one visit and I do have faith in Linda to train me as well as Poppy - as I mentioned to Linda she's my Nanny McPhee so I am looking forward to our next session ☺

Trainer note from Linda:
We still have a lot of work to do with Poppy so this training will be ongoing for a while but we have started off very well.

We very much enjoyed the training session with Linda. She explained everything very clearly and answered any questions we had. We were amazed that Dolly actually walked to heel for the first time while Linda was there. There is still work to do but using the techniques we were shown by Linda it is making things much easier.

Excellent first session with very clear guidelines introduced in a friendly manner. Lots of simple advice to help us with Baxters issues. Help sheets left with us to reinforce the messages given in the session. One week later Baxter is much calmer around the house. We are still working on him improving his walking on a lead and Linda has offered further advice and guidance on this, including a short follow up visit. We are confident that with Linda's support we can overcome the remaining issues and enjoy our gorgeous rescue dog.

Linda showed me how to train Molly in a relaxed and gentle way. We enjoyed the day. We have continued with the training instructions Linda left and Molly is responding very well.

Trainer note from Linda:
Molly is a beautiful girl and so willing to learn her new lessons. Secretly I could have taken her home with me!
