Neil arrived on time, a big plus! was very informative, friendly, gave us some good advice and reassurance! was excellent with our new puppy.
After his first visit we felt more capable to handle this bundle of fun!
Nice to know that we are doing some things right, glad we found Barkbusters.
Thanks and look forward to the next visit

Absolutely brilliant, wish we had known about him earlier. He is a lovely bloke with a fab sense of humour, so patient with the dogs, praised them all the time, and is honest. He was very impressed with our two, and almost instantly stopped Onyx from her obsessive tail chasing. In the past 24hrs, she has had the correction 4 times. Very impressed. A very enjoyable session, both me and my fella, as well as Shayde & Onyx, learnt from Neil. Definately recommend him.
14th December 2015Neil Price dealt with:
Our 6 year old black lab Teal is still in the bark busters process. We needed help with her anxiety around the house and when confronted with everyday situations such as: putting on her harness, feeding time and going out to do her business. She used to get increadibly stressed to the point where she'd have 'panic attacks' and hyperventilate. Neil has helped us tremendously with this issue and she now handles these situations much better and in a much more relaxed way. She still has her moments but normally a couple of corrections are all it takes to calm her back down.
The other issue that she has is that her anxiety can make her aggressive towards other dogs. She would whine, hyperventilate, pull on the lead, growl, chase and pin other dogs to the ground. After Neil's help she is more comfortable around dogs that she knows. She is able to play around other dogs and greets them more calmly than before. She still has an issue with dogs that she has never met before but we are confident that Neil will help us (and Teal) sort this soon so she will no longer feel so threatened when she sees a strange dog out on walks.
Over all we feel that Neil has helped Teal (and us!) massively. We look forward to working With him for the next few months to help Teal fully overcome her issue with dogs.

Neil was a great trainer he made me and my dogs feel relaxed and ready to work quickly. He got to know our routines our family dynamics and how the dogs behave together and separately. The work we did was sensible easy to follow and it works. Not a total instant magic wand or miracle but a massive difference in the positive behaviour. I feel I have been given control and my place back in the pecking order. I will practice and do my homework, we are also reassured we have the Bark Busters help any time we feel we have an issue and will be checked in a couple of weeks to assess progress. Thank you so much Neil ...

14th September 2015Neil Price dealt with:
At first contact with the trainer at the doorstep he introduced himself with identification and we preceded into the house whilst observing and taking notice of the border collie and asked what where the problem areas, after consulting with us he began a few exercises with our dog and us, and pointed out ways to correct the problems as well as reassuring us that if we follow these exercises, we will see an improvement in the dog as well as our handling of the situations. we cannot thank the trainer enough for the dedication he as shown to Our Collie and also made us better at dog handling.

So we got our cute little basset pops at nine months of age. Gorgeous and well behaved except for a few cheeky traits that we needed to knock out of him.
He came from a place where he was simply not trained and there for the pleasure of two small children so when we got him he had a few bad habits x
Neil came along and showed us how to address these issues and hes sooooooo much better! Xxx I cant recommend Neil enough. Hes an expert in his field and a lovely guy. It was a pleasure working with him x
1st September 2015Neil Price dealt with:
We invited Neil as we had concerns that our sibling puppies were getting the best start and not becoming too dependant on each other. Neil was a mind of information and his experience and expertise really put our minds at rest. He highlighted what we wetr getting right and showed us numerous ways to improve our experience with our puppies. He spent time showing us how to interact with our pups and they just loved him and responded really well to his firm but fun approach. We were left knowing that we could contact if we needed help and support which added to our confidence. So glad I made the call.

We've found it invaluable! Great that we've got some real practical solutions and written guidance to help us. Loved the fact that it was training in our local environment.
Neil is really supportive but direct too, which we appreciate and need!
