What our Clients are saying about us
Tracey was great. She was very helpful with our problems with Ted. Very professional approach from start to finish. Gave us some great advice which we have followed through with. Ted is still a work in progress but getting better each day.J.R., BOLTON, Greater Manchester30th October 2017
The training was excellent. Very clear and precise. Tracey spent time explaining not only what we needed to do but the reasons behind each instruction, and how our actions are perceived by the dog. Some of the tips were quite simple but nonetheless very effective. The change in behaviour was immediate, and although it is still a work in progress we are moving in the right direction. Thank You.S.H., BOLTON, Lancashire6th September 2017
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
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

What a transformation!
After just 3 hours with Tracey plus a bit of cascade training to family members our Jed is a reformed character.
The approaches to correcting the behaviours that were challenging us were positive, pro-active and incredibly easy to understand and implement.
Jed had a good old sulk at the new regime but is so much calmer and seems to appreciate family time so much more now he isn't defending us from anything and everything. I can't recommend Tracey and Bark Busters highly enough.

Tracey was simply brilliant - friendly, patient, thorough and professional and Bailey responded to her straightaway. We couldn't believe the improvement in such a short time, which has continued ever since on most of his issues. There are still significant problems with recall and walking on the lead but we knew these wouldn't be solved overnight and are confident that, with Tracey's help, we'll get there in the end. It makes such a difference just knowing she's there if we need her and we're not left to struggle on our own. Would absolutely recommend to anyone battling with a problem pooch:-)

Tracey is a magician! Within minutes of her starting to work with Cosmo I noticed a change. Her advice and explanations were easy to follow and made so much sense. Tracey is non judgemental and wants you to have a happy home, we certainly are on the right steps to this now. It's been 5 days since Tracey visited and behaviour is so much better, lots of work still to do but we are all more relaxed in the house and working on the areas we discussed in our meeting
Within 3 hours of Tracey visiting, we went from one hyper spaniel and one very stressed spaniel, to 2 calmer happier dogs who could be in the same room together, not something I expected to happen that quickly!

Tracey was brilliant,it hasn't even been a week and we can see a big difference already.

6th July 2017Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
The training was clear and our dog responded well to it. She is a rescue dog and is elderly with issues that have caused some problems. Mitzi has done really well in the week since the training.
2nd May 2017Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
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.

Very simple for the dog owners to follow and the explanations given behind the command were easy to understand

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.
