15th August 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was really great, very straight to the point and pointing out the fact that our dog is an attention seeker I couldn't believe it because since Sharon come I've noticed it myself. We are looking forward to continuing our training with her.
7th August 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
The training was very good and informative and I can see an improvement in the behaviour of my two dogs. They have barking issues and although it has been hard having to keep on with the training, it will be really worth it eventually. I can see light at the end of the tunnel!!

A very interesting session with Sharon at our home followed by a walk with Boris to the park.
Some helpful hints and tips for walking and sleeping and eating.
17th July 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
I am very impressed with the training up to now. Milo is learning fast. A few things will take him about longer but overall he's doing well. Can't wait for my next lesson.
13th July 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Excellent few hours with Sharon. Really helped me feel positive again and already seeing a difference in both dogs. Look forward to working further on all the issues I have with the 2 dogs.

Very postitive. Sharon made us feel there was light at the end of the tunnel. Magic is a beautiful dog and Sharon helped us see the really positive side to him. We saw a calmness to him, we hadn't seen before, within minutes of Sharon teaching us how to communicate with him.

Sharon is so professional and worked on both on us today. I'm having less anxiety about the procedure. End of session went back to repeat all the training that Sharon showed and was easy for Pax to listen. The way Sharon worked with Pax and I will be successful. I feel comfy and Pax Jr is much calm and good listening.Thank you Sharon.See you in 2weeks time.
10th June 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was very patient and friendly and explained everything very clearly. She took time to find out what our specific problems were, and I was very interested to find out some of the issues could be caused by things we had never thought of (for example the behaviour of our puppy could be due to his lack of sleep - I just assumed that as he was always awake and wanted to play, this was the best thing for him!!). I now make sure he gets lots of sleep and put him in his crate after every walk.
Sharon also taught us some little games we can play, and lead training was especially helpful - just 2 days in and our puppy has almost mastered walking on a loose lead!
Although I have had a puppy before, this one has been much more challenging, so Sharon's help and advice has been invaluable.
Since our first visit, I have emailed Sharon one and called twice and she is always quick to get back and answer any queries. So far very happy. Although I paid for the year guarantee, I'm sure I won't be needing this as our puppy is responding very well. Unfortunately, he is on antibiotics after being bitten by another dog, and has a lampshade on his head - this has made him rather grumpy so putting into practice some of the techniques Sharon taught me is proving rather tricky! I'm sure once he has made a full recovery, we can pick up where we left off and continue to make good progress.
6th June 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon arrived bang on time for our first appointment, I phoned bark busters to help me with my wire haired fox terrier Rosie and my welsh terrier Teddy Sharon was brilliant, she spent time asking lots of questions to identify and understand what our issues, best of all I didn't feel like I was being judged as an owner Everything she said makes sense and she was very clear in explaining what we would work on initially and gave clear demonstrations on how to use the strategies. Sharon gave me some useful advice around the dogs' diet .
I felt Sharon really took her time and made sure that I understood my "homework"
I am two weeks in and can see the results already which is amazing !
I'm under no illusions that for the training to be successful the hard work has to come form me but with the ongoing support form Sharon I have no doubt that we will succeed in having well behaved happy doggies and much happier owners!
1st June 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon is exceptionally professional and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed and learned a huge amount during the first session. We spent the first 45 minutes providing Sharon with in-depth details about the dogs and us and what we considered to be the areas of concern and why. Both dogs 'fence-fight' at the gate and the younger dog is reactive to other dogs. Sharon explained to us the dog 'psyche' and it made complete sense when explained by a professional. Both dogs reacted very well to Sharon and were transformed when being handled by her. We spent time learning how to stop the 'boys' door rushing and barking when people approached and entered the house and using games and reward to achieve objectives. We then all went for a walk so that Sharon could monitor how we handled the dogs and what we needed to rectify - quite a lot! We were left with homework and strategies. Two weeks later the 'boys' bark less, don't rush at the door and are beginning to learn that there is an invisible boundary before the gate. Bruno will also walk to heel both on and off the lead. Our next lesson is in a week's time and I believe we are going to work with Samba (the reactive dog) so that Sharon can see his 'body' language when near other dogs. Based on that she will be able to determine the best course of action to help him and of course us. Very enjoyable, productive and positive. Thank you.
