5th November 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
Very happy with first visit from Amanda and training methods recommended.
Dogs responded to initial training very well and we as a family are committed to follow through with Amanda's advice and work with her to achieve the best results.
Amanda is very warm and friendly and was more than happy for my children to participate which is important to me.
We look forward to our next session.

Amanda's first session went well. Till responded almost immediately to the training. Her behaviour inside has improved a lot and we are now more in control and pack leaders again. Outside Till has more training to do as Tilly is aggressive to other dogs sometimes and chases cars. We are working with Amanda on this and are doing exercises in car parks etc at present but this will take time to sort out.
Amanda is very calm and confident and I think this helps me a lot as I worry about taking Tilly out. I would recommend her to anyone.
Tilly and her owners are doing really well. Even on our first appointment the usually dog aggressive Tilly was happily playing with two of my dogs in a controlled space.
Her owners are right that Tilly has a long way to go, but calmer and happier dog and owner will make that progress much quicker.

I would highly recommend Amanda / Bark Busters - seeing an immediate and on-going imrpovement in my dog's behaviour.
24th July 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
The therapist was EXCELLENT, a very confidnet and down-to-earth person. I don't think you could have anyone better. I'm very pleased with the training and her, thank you all.
This gentleman's dog was a private rehome, nervous and very aggressive to dogs as a self-defence mechanism. In very short order the client was showing his dog that he was there to help her, and the result was that they were able to walk happily around and with one of my dogs, and also cope with neighbourhood dogs passing just on the first appointment. This is why I love this job!
2nd July 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
Can't believe the difference in the dogs' behaviour in such a short time, even the neighbours commented on the change in our dogs e.g. nuisnace barking nearly non-existent.
17th June 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
I was truly shocked and amazed at how quickly Cody responded and improved with the training techniques. Amanda had a great knowledge of dogs and explained each training exercise in an easily understandable way. She was always friendly and extremely supportive with the new methods as we tried them for ourselves. I would recommend Bark Busters to any dog owner - whether their dog is problematic or not.
Cody is a lovely young Jack Russell cross who had taken quite a hefty role upon himself. He appeared delighted to have some control offered by his owners and was so pleased to do everything - ANYthing for them - and all that just for a big cuddle and fuss. no need for food. A real pleasure of a job.

I would recommend Bark Busters. Even if you think nobody can help you - they can!
The training really helped and Amanda gaveus the confidnece to deal with the problems we were having with Jake.
4th April 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
At the first session Max responded well and understood what boundaries were being set. The techniques were very well explained and by the end of a few hours, we were 'thinking dog' and able to work using the techniques.
Max is an adorable Weimaraner who had expected everyone to feel blessed at being in his presence. His owners were just great, doing everything that has been asked of them, and in a recent phone conversation reported that he has not barked for attention since our first appointment 3 weeks ago. Well done!
24th March 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
A very enjoyable and encouraging first session. I was amazed to see an instant improvement in behaviour.
This was a most enjoyable session with owners who did everything that was asked of them. As a result, they found they had an instant "off" switch for their dog's barking, and were able to go on a walk around the village with his attention on them, and not every hedgerow, gate and lamp-post that they passed.
