What our Clients are saying about us
Shauna was calm, kind, easy to get on with, she listened to what I had to say, she had empathy with me and the dogs - her training methods were immediately effective and her future plans for us all were entirely manageable. We have put training in place and it is working - thank youK.W., Redhill, Surrey22nd February 2017

I just wanted to write to say a big thank you for helping us with Bruno and Bea. You have given us the support and confidence we need to train the puppies to become well mannered dogs. Knowing that you are there whenever we need your help is invaluable. The Bark busters method is excellent and quick too. Thank you for your patience and kindness. It's a relief to know that when the door bell rings they will behave well!! We are looking forward to taking them out and feeling that we have the control!C.G., worthing, West Sussex21st May 2016
Shauna has been really helpful with our German Shepherd who had quite bad lead aggression, pulling and growling when he saw other dogs on the lead. With the techniques that Shauna has taught me I no longer feel a sense of panic when I see another dog on a lead coming and have much better confidence and control. He has improved so much! Thank you!!V.H., Warninglid, West Sussex26th January 2016
Shauna visited us at home to offer support with puppy obedience skills. She was supportive, professional and her advice and guidance was invaluable. By the end of the session I had clear guidance about how to support my puppy and to reduce any unwanted behaviours to keep him safe. Having the 1:1 support meant that I was able to get constructive feedback and support to ensure that I was able to continue these skills afterwards. I have also been able to share them with family so that my puppy has consistency in his care.N.E., Crawley, West Sussex4th December 2015

Shauna was really helpful, teaching us techniques to reduce Phoebe's barking and jumping. It was so effective she became a model dog and Shauna struggles to see her misbehaving!

Our dog came from a rescue centre and suffers from anxiety and fear of strangers causing him to be aggressive. He was the same with Shauna who could not even reach into her bag without him barking. After one session he was sitting next to her and she could move around the room without reaction. An immediate improvement with visitors was noticed. He also improved outdoors with cyclists and joggers and we haven't even done any specific work on that yet. Advice on diet also seems to have helped calm him down. There is still work to do but the difference after one session was beyond our wildest dreams

On our first meeting, Shauna came across as a warm friendly enthusiastic lady which put me at ease straight away. Shauna explained things in the simplest way of training. At the end of our training lesson I noticed already an improvement especially with Sully walking and not pulling so much on his lead. Now after a few weeks, I'm actually enjoying walking with Sully and not coming home with a sore shoulder.

I have just finished my year's training for Daisy with Shauna. She has been such a great help. Daisy has always been very wary of Shauna for some reason, but Shauna has been so patient with her.
It's a pleasure to go on walks now, as I no longer have to worry what Daisy will do when she meets another dog.
Shauna has said I can call her anytime I need help......you can't ask for more than that.
She is definitely a great ambassador for Barkbusters and a lovely person too.
Maureen has put in a lot of work with Daisy this last year. By finding the time to take Daisy out on her own and really focus on training has really paid off. The difference in Daisy is remarkable she's such a calm and relaxed girl these days. Well done!

Our dog Yogi started showing aggression towards other dogs both on and off the lead so much so that I was too frightened and nervous to walk him on the lead.I can't believe it's been only 7 days since Shauna's first visit showing us the training instructions to be followed which will allow Yogi eventually to interact with other dogs. I am now gaining the confidence and leadership skills shown by Shauna and for the last 6 days I have walked Yogi around our village using the advise given. I understand we have a long road ahead but with Shauna's techniques I'm fully confident we will achieve our goal.

We have a very loving yet very protective miniature dachshund who suffers with seperation anxiety and barking issues. Since having Shauna help us Chip has improved massively, we can now have people over and it be less stressful as he stops barking after 5minutes now where as he would be non stop before! We are still tackling leaving him in the house when we go out as currently unable to do so but theres inprovment. Shauna is lovely and so helpful and full of great little tips and ideas. Thankyou for taking on my stubborn yet beautiful pooch!
