What our Clients are saying about us
The training given by Tracey was excellent. Since Tracey has visited and worked with myself and Ralph it has been far easier to control and understand him. He has responded to the training techniques better than I could have hoped for. Tracey explained all of the reasoning behind the training techniques which all made perfect sense. Tracey has been the best thing for Ralph and myself.D.H., Worsley Manchester, Lancashire29th June 2016
Tracey was very friendly and helpful. She explained all the training we needed to do with Harry along with the reasons for all the changes we needed to make for it to work. She spent 4 hours with us and we felt that her knowledge and experience were extensive. The interaction between all of us was great and, although we were shocked at finding out how much needed changing, we were left feeling very motivated to put all her suggestions into action immediately.P.T., Wigan, Lancashire19th March 2016
We took on a rescue dog 6 months ago and have had some success in training him, but seemed to slip back without knowing why. Along came Tracey who was able to identify the issues quickly and give us sound practical advice on how to correct our mistakes (yes our mistakes, not the dog!) We had a lot to take in, but were given the confidence and the tools to do it. We put the advice into practice that same afternoon and we all went to bed exhausted! This morning I took him out, practised the disciplined exit at the front door (worked first time) and out for the walk. I cannot believe the transformation in such a short time, perfect trotting at the side of me instead of dragging me down the road, and correction by me before dogs approached ensured a perfectly behaved dog - even with his nemesis (3 huskies) walking towards him he only growled quietly. Thank you Tracey, what a difference! We have lots of work and practice ahead of us but are confident that we'll succeed. Can't recommend Tracey highly enough!S.T., Bolton, Greater Manchester30th August 2015
We are really pleased with the initial results following our training session with Bark Busters.There has been a significant improvement in Ted's behaviour since our first training session a week ago. We noticed an immediate difference in him. We are getting used to the ground rules we agreed with Tracey and look forward to the next steps. It has been really easy to learn how to control Ted's behaviour and we are confident that we can overcome his problems. It has given us hope that in the future we will be able to enjoy walks and social dog times again.A.B., Worsley, Greater Manchester24th August 2015
Tracey was very understanding of the problems with Ben. Her advice was second to none. She not only told us which techniques to use, she also put them into practice and made sure I was aware and able to carry them out before she left. She also advised me on his diet and exercise plan and some literature that i could obtain about this.Mr & Mrs R, Farnworth, Bolton14th June 2010

The session with Tracey was extremely helpful. She was very patient and explained everything clearly. It was very interesting understanding the reason why dogs behave in certain ways and ways in which to change their behaviour.
There was a huge difference in Ollie's behaviour almost immediately. He is a rescue dog and was very anxious, he is now much more settled and calm.

I cannot recommend Tracy highly enough! She was SO professional! She listened very attentively, she provided excellent advice and strategies - she was just SUPERB! She was extremely competent and caring and had a lovely personal disposition. I trusted her judgement immediately. She was SO knowledgeable and our two dogs respected her from the moment that she came through the front door. I would urge anyone who needs help with their dog to contact her, she is absolutely brilliant!, and such a lovely gentle person. I was in awe of her! Thank you so much Tracy, if we need any further help, you would be the only person that I would ever turn to. Thank you so much for your help.

We really liked Tracey, we were very impressed with how Rocky responded, it was like magic and quite frankly we had to do something as he was doing what he wanted.We have never had a dog that was so hard to live with but thanks to Tracey we are feeling positive and Rocky is much improved and we can relax a little and keep calm but carry on with the training.

Tracey explained everything to us in simple terms. We were having problems with Molly consistently barking, both dogs jumping up and worst of all sibling rivalry. After a couple of hours with Tracey showing us were we were going wrong Molly and cindy seem to be 2 completely different dogs. Although it's still early days the signs are looking really good. I can't thank Tracey and bark busters enough. I'm really pleased with the results no more fighting jumping up and barking. Excellent.

I was really impressed with Tracey's knowledge and her approach to me as a complete novice dog owner. There was a quick impact on Lofty's behaviour during the visit which is ongoing as I practice my learning.

Tracey was brilliant, she showed us lots of different techniques and gave us advice on lots of different areas with our puppy. We can both see many changes since our first lesson yesterday. The only regret I have is not getting our puppy trained earlier & we've got the reassurance that Tracey will be on hand to help with any more problems we might have for the next year.

Tracy explained clearly what we needed to do to change Jesses behaviour. She now keeps off the furniture and uses her own bed. We are progressing with her lead work and their is a marked improvement. She now stays out of the window and does not bark continually at passers buy.Jess is still a work in progress but she is improving daily with the help of her training
