Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Separation Anxiety

Linda introduced me to a completely new type of training for my naughty Giant Schnauzer puppy (8 months), which proved amazing. It is now ten days after Linda first trained Charlie .. and me! It seems she can sort out every problem with a dog and afterwards he seemed like a different dog. However, I am aware that this training will take much work and practise, but being more in control I enjoy practising with him, it is not hard work, it is enjoyable. I found Linda very calm and reassuring and such a lovely person who appears to bring magic into the house. I am now looking forward to the next session. Charlie is much more peaceful now and responds to corrections and because I was letting the dog boss me, I had work to do to change this. I can't believe the difference after Linda's training, Charlie now responds to (most) things I ask him to do. I can't thank Linda enough, my life is so much easier as most of the behaviour problems have improved dramatically. He is a pleasure to take on walks and I can understand him better and our relationship has immensely improved. Of course, there are one or two things that Charlie tests me on, but I am aware now and know how to manage it. My house is now a happy house, with a happy dog and I am certainly much happier. Thank you millions Linda. Bark Busters are marvellous.

Trainer note from Linda:
Charlie is a beautiful young dog and is eager to learn. His owner has spent a lot of time training him in various ways and I love that she has trained him to wipe his beard hair after he has drunk from the water bowl on a towel left for him on a kitchen chair, yes true saw it with my own eyes and when he came over to me his beard was completely dry. So now I have to try and train my Boxer Oliver to do the same!

I did a revisit with Charlie and his owner on 26th July. He has responded so well to the system and his owner is very proud of him. We did some other work with him and he again responded well. At the end of the session when we got home Charlie played the piano for me! Yes, true - he can do his scales.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

I feel confident that with Linda's help I will be able to overcome the problems I have been having with my dog and the problems my dog has with me.

Trainer note from Linda:
We have only just completed the first session and there will be follow up sessions and homework to follow to help the owner and her dog.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

We saw immediate results with easy to follow guidelines. We have been able to put everything Linda taught us into practise with success. Meg still has a lot to learn but we now feel much more confident and able to control certain situations better.

We were also advised to alter Meg's diet which she is not only enjoying more but we feel she is less hyperactive.

Trainer note from Linda:
Meg is still a very young Border Collie that was very anxious about visitors, barking and backing away from them, she lunged at cars, bikes and other dogs. Even after I was in their home for a while if I dared to move it would start her off on the barking and daring herself to have a lunge at me. After the intial session we could see an improvement in her and on my second visit I was almost sure she was a different dog! She was laid down on the floor in the living room relaxed. Meg's owners have done a wonderful job on her and her behaviour is much improved. I will be continuing to support Meg and her family with any problems they have with her.

Linda works in a professional and friendly way, explaining simply how to address Ozzy's problems. We still have a long way to go, but there is an improvement so far.

Deefer has responded very well to the 'pillow' and the bah command. He is much calmer since training began and people that call say how much better he is. The Canny collar has been wonderful for walking and he is now a pleasure to take out.

We still have a long way to go but seem to be on the right track - not bad for only eight months old. Thank you Linda.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

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!!

Trainer note from Linda:
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.

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!

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.
