What our Clients are saying about us
Our very first session with Sharon last year was successful in setting up a good relationship between her and us - the dog owners! This is as important as training our dog because it is all so new. Our relationship has continued well and we have learned so much which we have been able to put into practice for our lovely Ink. As a rescue dog with her first 2 years unknown, her behaviour is much improved although we have still not managed to resolve her issues with other animals. We will continue with Sharon's advice and methods and are certain that we will overcome this in time. We highly recommend Sharon as a trainer.J.S., BIRKENHEAD, Merseyside24th October 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
Sharon was amazing today. Friendly and approachable. She quickly started to explain in a way we could understand bits of her obviously extensive knowledge an understanding of how we can improve the day to day behaviour of our two boxer puppies. Immediately they were calmer and we could see exactly what we were doing wrong but had no idea! I can see how if we follow her advice and everything she taught us today that we can have a good family life with our children and two boxer baby boys! Amazing to watch Sharon at work -we hope we can do her proud in time for her next visit.V.W., Wrexham29th September 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

Firstly I would like to say how responsive Amanda was to my emails and phone calls and knowledgable on dogs unwanted behaviour it made me want to book.
Sharon was very informative and the time flew by on the first lesson she had won Bella over in a short time. She taught us basic games that engaged Bella and gave us lots of information including nutrition which was interesting. We are practicing the techniques she shown us and look forward to the next session.

First training session with Sharon and we were very impressed. She took time to listen to and understand the problems we were experiencing with Remus and explained and demonstrated exercises and techniques we could employ with him. She gave us homework to do with helpful notes and we will be having further follow up sessions with her. We are reassured that we will soon have a calmer and happier dog.

Sharon was extremely helpful and full of incites. It was very interesting, and Monty has already started responding to the training . We are looking forward to the next stage of his training, and are delighted with the results so far.
7th February 2018Sharon Chapman dealt with:
We found our first training session to be very beneficial, and once we humans understood our instructions we found that Lola (our staffy) responded positively. Each aspect of the training was explained and demonstrated and then we were given an opportunity to practise with the guidance of our trainer. Sharon was very easy to talk to yet professional which made it easier for us to ask advice on all aspects of dog ownership. We now have a couple of weeks to work on what we have been advised to do before the next stage and I can honestly say that in just 4 days we can see an improvement in the way Lola walks with us.

Did not know what to expect at all but session turned out to be so informative and enjoyable both for Elsie and ourselves. Sharon talked to us for a while about the difficulties we had with Elsie and explained things we were doing that weren't helping! She then did some exercises with Elsie and we got to practice too, you could see Elsie was really enjoying using her brain to think and learn. We have continued with the exercises Sharon showed us and Elsie is doing good. It's small steps but we feel confident Elsie will get there as will we with Sharon's help.

It has been lovely watching this relationship develop. All advice has been taken on board and exercises have been practised and whilst there is still work to do the change in Ink has been brilliant. I am certain the owners will continue to make progress and as their confidence grows the issues will soon be in the past. It has been a pleasure to work with them all.

Feeling very positive after our first session with Sharon. She is very knowledgable and dedicated, 3 hours flew by. We now have many games to play and tips to deal with our behaviour issues. Rigby is learning fast and already making great strides with his lead walking. Highly recommend for a personal service. We are looking forward to further sessions.
