Noticed change while Tracey was here.
Friends happy to come and visit now.
Still a way to go but confident we'll get there.
We now have a more peaceful home.
Owners rang me on 13th Dec to report on their progress. Training is going really well and they are delighted with the control they now have with their two dogs Bess and Ben especially when visitors enter the house.

After owning a terrier cross for 15 years I thought it would be easy to handle two Jack Russell puppies. Not so. They were becoming a source of serious stress. Then I found Tracey online. What a difference she has made to our lives - we have our house and routine back! Almost immediately we had two very different dogs, the barking and jumping up was under control as was the soiling in the house. Walking on the lead was amazing, Recall was great in the home and the dogs now sleep happily together in the dog crate. There is some way to go of course but the transformation has been fantastic. Thank you very much.

We have had an immediate improvement with Cassie's barking, not perfect yet but much better. We will probably need some more training in a few weeks on recall when we have re-established ourselves as pack leaders.
Tracey was really good at demonstrating and explaining things to us.
24th September 2011Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
We are very pleased with the way Tracey dealt with Freddie. AMAZEMENT is what we felt at how Freddie reacted to Tracey's calm but assertive manner. We are in the process of trying to carry out all that Tracey said. Even in a few days we have seen a big improvement, but realise we have a long way to go. The fact that we can contact Tracey with any problem we may have with Freddie is very reassuring. Tracey made us feel confident that with her help we can help Freddie become a calmer obedient dog that we can be proud of.

Tracey was a credit to your company. In 3 hours she has made a huge impression on both myself and Boo.
21st June 2011Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Our dog is quite good outside, walking on or off lead, but his behaviour indoors was becoming intolerable. Tracey put us at our ease immediately and explained in great detail how we were going wrong. The morning passed so quickly and it was amazing how our dog was so responsive to her, without using treats! He still needs a lot of work and we understand that we must persevere with the training methods but he is already very much improved.
And we know Tracey is only a phone call away.

Very enjoyable morning. Spent time explaining puppy management. Taught the whole family not just the dog. We have a new puppy, thank you.
12th January 2011Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Bart is 10 years old and has spent the last 6 years in kennels. he has aggression problems with other dogs. Tracey showed us how to stop him barking at birds/squirrels in the garden and when someone knocks on the door - also how to behave when they come into the house.Then we did close walking and turning and then recall off the lead on the patio. Bart responded well to Tracey as did we! When I rang her for further advise Tracey was most patient and helpful and gave us a lot of hope and confidence.
Apart from Barts aggression to other dogs which is a problem that will be dealt with at a later date, he had several other behavioural issues which required addressing first in order to give the owner more control, not least pulling really badly on the lead.At the end of the session Bart was walking beautifully for both of his owners.

17th August 2010Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Having previously used Bark Busters a number of years ago with my previous dog I had no hesitation in contacting them for help with my 6 month old Golden Retriever dog Bayley. Upon meeting Tracey I found her to be very pleasant and approachable and I immediately felt comfortable in her company. The training techniques shown to me are easy to follow and after only two weeks of putting them into practice Bayley is responding well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tracey to anyone who needs help with their dog and it is also reassuring to know that she is always at the end of a phone or available for further visits should I need anymore help or assistance with Bayley.

Excellent work. Really did not believe anybody could fix my dogs(was proved wrong). All of our questions were answered. Money well spent. Would recommend Tracey as she gave 100%
