What our Clients are saying about us
We had our first meeting with Sharon just over a week ago now as we were struggling to manage our pup Bentley . Sharon instantly made us feel at ease and we knew we had made the right decision. Throughout the visit Sharon shared her knowledge and techniques with us which we also got to put into practice. We are amazed with the changes we have seen so far and they are continuing to work well with Bentley. We understood that this would be a working progress and have made changes suggested to us regarding Bentley's diet, exercise and behaviour and again we are extremely pleased with the results most of all Bentley seems to be a much happier pup. I would recommend Sharon to anyone who is struggling with their pup/dog very professional and friendly service!!L.F., Moreton, Wirral, Merseyside12th March 2017
Our first session with Sharon was very informative and interesting. She explained things in a straight forward and understandable manor. Everything was tailored to our specific problems, she interacted with James wonderfully. She physically showed us how to do things and how to put right behaviour traits that that needed to be changed and gave us time and encouragement while we also tried. James really enjoyed working with her and was beginning to learn what we wanted him to do even before the end of her first visit. Her understanding of dogs and how they think is outstanding. We are very much looking forward to her next visit and hopefully showing her how much we have both improved.P.B., CHESTER, Cheshire8th December 2016
The training was thorough and delivered at a good pace. Both myself and my dog 'Louie' gained a good understanding and knowledge of how to attain the standards expected in/around the house. Sharon our trainer was excellent and her techniques, uniquely tailored to us. Looking forward to the next lesson and already seeing positive resultsP.M., Moreton, Merseyside16th November 2016
Our first session with Sharon went very well and I felt she diagnosed the issues with our dogs quickly . As well as discussing the theory behind the training methods we were going to use, she incorporated several practical exercises to address the problems she had identified, and left us with written instructions so that we would be able to do these ourselves between sessions with her. The dogs responded very well and I am confident that we will see improvements soon.D.A., Rossett, Wrexham9th February 2016
Sharon came to visit us on a Thursday evening to help with the training of our little puppy Daisy. If we are honest it was more us that needed the training rather than Daisy. Sharon spent some time getting to know a bit about us and Daisy and then got straight into tackling the issues we were experiencing. She showed us some positive ways to encourage good behaviour and we have now successfully trained Daisy not to jump on the sofa and made a big leap into getting her crate trained. In addition Sharon also took Daisy out for a walk and gave us advice on how to positively encourage her as she is a little nervous walking at night. I find the service provided by Sharon to be perfect for our needs. We felt that we needed help in very specific areas hence contacting bark busters rather than puppy training. This is a service I would highly recommend.T.R., Wrexham, Flintshire5th February 2016

Sharon was fantastic. She came when Ned was 13 weeks, although he was a good puppy there were a few things we definitely needed advice and help with. One of the main things for us was his walking trying to even get three houses down would take 20 minute as he was sniffing and pulling. Sharon gave us advice and now happily take Him to the woods and sit outside a coffee shop with him and that's just in 4 weeks. She shared information of how to change his food and which website to look on so we now know he's eating better. He doesn't wee at all inside he will go outside and we don't use the puppy pads at all. What I love most about all of this, is how all the training is done in a positive way and using lots of praise as this is the only way I would want to train Ned. Above is only a few things she supported with in the first session there were lots more.

Sharon is brilliant, has no messing from my bossy rescue collie !
He is 8 years old & I have had him for 3.5 years. He has developed an acute noise phobia & started refusing to go out for his walks with me. He is also attention seeking & as a result has me wrapped around his paw !
Sharon identified very quickly that he was using his noise phobia to control me & we have done work to address this. Most of the time he is playing up rather than being actually frightened. Sharon had visited again today & seen first hand how his behaviour is when we are out on the field. . She has given me the confidence & strategies I need to deal with his negative behaviour.

A very positive session with Sharon. I had struggled with Duke's anxiety & hyperactivity since I rescued him in late 2014 & was amazed at how quickly Duke reacted to the techniques Sharon advised.
Having been experienced in the past with rescue dogs & successful in my techniques, I was however, unable to change some of his behaviours. I spent hours on YouTube, paid a large amount of money to a 'TV Behavourist' - who accepted £1500 & told me his advice was to have my dog euthanised as he was so out out of control.
Being at my wits end, I came across Barkbusters & decided to give some further training another go.
I quickly realised that most of Sharon's techniques were aimed at me as well as my dog.
No worries - I took that on the chin.
I have been practising Sharon's advice & so far am achieving results. It's a slow & consistent process but I'm sure with my patience & consistency, we'll both reap the rewards.
Super pleased with advice & techniques so far.
The best thing is that Sharon is available for further sessions which is fantastic.

I found the lesson helpful and informative, we learned some useful techniques to help with Samson's progress. Sharon put my mind at ease concerning difficulties that come with a rescue dog, and we enjoy and look forward to working with her for the foreseeable future!

Sharon was very insightful regarding the reasoning behind our pugs behaviours, the training techniques surprised us all with the instant response we had from both the dogs, we have been following her instructions and it already feels like there had been a huge improvement with their behaviour this was mostly due to the barriers we agreed to set, it turns out that it was us that needed the most training and not the dogs.
I would highly recommend the service as it had vastly improved our knowledge not only on why we had the issues to begin with but also on their food intake.

We have so far had two sessions with Sharon and are delighted with the progress Wiggo is making. We have had advice on a range of issues and all of it is helping. From advice on food to walking and recall. Wiggo is becoming a much happier dog.

Sharon came today and helped me understand where I was going wrong with my dogs. She was very helpful and explained things clearly. Have two very tired boys. Thank you for your help. I definitely found the techniques helpful and will be practicing them.

Our first session with Sharon was very informative. She explained to us how we should control Jess and not Jess control us!! Her training was very individual and based on our particular needs. Jess took to Sharon immediately and responded well to Her techniques. Sharon helped us to get Jess into her crate and I no longer have a problem with her going into it when I go to work. I have had to contact Sharon regarding Jess chewing our ankles and her response was quick and supportive. I look forward to Sharon's next visit.
