Training with Hugo and Daisy went really well on the 12th june and because of Linda's advice and also training me(which I needed just as much as them) we are doing really well, we will keep on with the good advice and training and what's good to know is Linda will come and help us when ever we need her no matter how many times so keep up the good work Bark Busters(Linda) xx

Trainer note from Linda:
Hugo was a recent addition to the family after the initial training with Daisy, he has settled well into the family unit and with some training has become a lot easier to manage. Well done for all their hard work.

Firstly, thank you soooo much for your help with Skyla, she has responded really well to everything you taught us to do. Secondly, the natural dog food is a great idea, we have certainly seen a difference in how calm both my dogs are! Once again, thank you so much for such a personable and knowledgeable visit.

We have been pleased so far with the training we (and Bruno) received from Linda. The information was concise and easy to follow, and having handouts to refer to when Linda left us to practice is a good idea.

Bruno is responding well, and we think with plenty of practice and patience he will continue to be a happy, fun dog.

Trainer note from Linda:
Bruno is the most adorable German Shepherd puppy and responds well to training. He will make a fine grown up boy and I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Marley is a St Bernard that had issues with stranger aggression and separation anxiety, where he pulls up part of the carpet. Marley has now met a couple of new people and with the training techniques he met them calmly. The carpet has also remained in situ for almost a week. I can't believe the difference, Marley is a much calmer dog in general. Linda was fantastic and Marley and I are looking forward to working with her again soon!

It's been almost a year since we contacted Linda at Barkbusters. We cannot thank Linda enough for all that she has done to help us with our Jack Russell, Betty. We first contacted Linda due to Betty's aggression towards other dogs and her general bad temperament. This has improved no end along with Betty's behaviour both in and out of the house. Linda is always there when we need her, either face to face , email or telephone. Betty was a rescue dog and had many behavioural issues, but with Linda's help she is turning into a lovely little well behaved dog.

Trainer note from Linda:
Betty is an adorable little Jack Russell who is loved by her whole family very much. They have worked really hard with the training to get this result, she has come such a long way in a year. They have, in fact, upgraded her to the Gold service so they can continue with any further issues they may have.

Linda was very helpful and explained everything very calmly. Milly responded well to her and her training methods, it definitely works for Milly. It is very useful that the training is ongoing and any problems can be addressed. I would definitely recommend Linda to any dog owner.

Trainer note from Linda:
Milly is the most lovely little Jack Russell I've ever worked with, she responded to the training immediately. I have just revisited her today (29th January 2013) to help with walking exercises and she responded very well.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

I am delighted with progress so far. Some improvements were made in the first half an hour and are continuing. This progress is already impacting on the quality of my life as well as Misty's. I am now confident much progress will be made.

Trainer note from Linda:
Misty's owner has worked extremely hard in getting the progress she desired and on my revisit it was lovely to see her smiling and enjoying her walking and other dog training exercises I'd left her to do.

Both my dog and I have responded well to training techniques explained to me by Linda. However, I have not managed to master the Canny collar so Tazzy has missed out on this element of his training (this I intend to address and rectify)!

I have found it difficult to remain calm at all times, I do, however, realise (in fact am acutely aware) that the more patient I am the greater the positive response/reaction from Tazzy.

I trust with Linda's help and input and my hard work I will be able to approach all situations safe in the knowledge that Tazzy will behave appropriately.

Trainer note from Linda:
I revisited Tazzy on 3rd September and his owner can now walk Tazzy on the Canny collar, it wasn't fitted correctly but with some extra tuition she reported back to me that she is enjoying her walking with him and feeling more confident. She has worked extremely hard with him and I could not believe the difference in his behaviour by my second visit. Well done Tazzy.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

We initially contacted Linda some two years ago and we had tremendous support from her with our two dog terriers. Recently we have had a bitch terrier added to our family and sibling rivaly started. The level had increased over a number of weeks and at our wits end after the last fight, we feared one of the dogs would be seriously injured, we made contact with Linda. Though our guarantee had expired she made the time to visit us again as she was in our area. We can't thank her enough.

What a relief, with words of encouragement, refocus on some basic techniques and introduce some practical house rules we saw a calmness return to our household. We think the terriers are happier too, they seem to understand the reinforced boundaries and we feel back in control. Thank you Linda, your expertise, advice and support was greatly appreciated. Especially thanks from Dibble, Barney and Milly.

Trainer note from Linda:
I had to help these dogs, I really didn't want to see any of them have to be rehomed especially as Milly was a rescue dog. Their owners are committed to the training and I'm sure there will be no further problems.

Hello Linda, I just had to tell you what we have done today. I took Charlie to a local pet show and I was brave enough to register him for the show ring! I wasn't intending to do that, I thought Charlie would be all over the place and that I would forget things. Time came for the show ring. I knew even if we did well I couldn't get a prize because my son owns part of the company which was organising the event. Well, suddenly there we were, walking around in the ring, fast, slow, fast, very slow and finish with a normal walk. Charlie was brilliant, he seemed to enjoy it as if he had been born for it. We were chosen for the next round and judging. When the Judge came up to me she said that she was sorry she couldn't award us any prizes and if we hadn't been related to the company she would have given us second place because she said, "You and Charlie were at one with other, he trusts you and keeps looking up at you. You kept talking to him and your body language was good. No treats and clickers (and there was a lot of that going on and Charlie hardly reacted to the noise of the clicker although he knows what it means, he just carried on). He didn't fidget throughout the waiting time, he was very patient. Continue your training and you will have a really good, willing dog." Amazing, that meant such a lot to me and has given me more confidence with Charlie.

However, I owe a lot to you Linda, because Charlie and I are beginning a special relationship and it is you that helped this happen. Thank you, today was a special day!

Trainer note from Linda:
This show took place just two days after my second visit/session with Charlie and his owner. You can imagine just how pleased I was with their result. Well done to them and with all the hard work Charlie's owner has put in he will continue to grow into a well mannered boy. Congratulations.
