25th April 2018Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was fabulous with our dog Ecko from the moment she came into the house, she showed him who was boss.
Lynn helped us understand why we were experiencing aggression issues and really put us a ease to say we could train Ecko to be a happier less nervous dog.
We practiced "into bed" to create a safe place for Ecko which he would always go to when commanded. He loved this training as it was continuous treats and praise.
We also practiced muzzle training to give us an extra default should we feel we needed to resort to this which he loved less but was happy to comply.
Lynn made everything make sense and made it very clear how to help change Ecko's behaviour.
We were looking forward to having Lynn to come back and work with us and Ecko on his walking and lack of wanting to do it! Unfortunately, Ecko has since been diagnosed with cancer in his shoulder and we have had to put him to sleep. I advised bark busters of the situation and Lynn gave me a call to send her condolences and offer her support in our difficult time and heartbreak. It was unexpected and a very welcome offer of support and help as Ecko was a friend first before a dog and he has left a big gap in our family.

Worth every penny. You don't just get trained and that's it, you get looked after. The program is friendly and safe and kind on you and your dog.
Absolutely amazing, Graham helped my family and me with my dog Marley.
She had separation anxiety, kept barking everything that moved outside the window and to my front door, she would pull on the lead and behaved badly towards guests that would come to my home. She would demand attention all the time...... But apart from all of that she is a beauty, she's 7 years old and has had a bad past.
She was used for breeding and had a litter before the age of 1. She was never walked and kept in a cage under the stairs, so she was in a bad way but has come along way.
Graham had a lot of amazing advice, tricks, and help.
What would of taken 2 months was corrected in 3 hours. Today it's day 3 after the bark buster training and what a difference.
I am truly happy but got to keep up the hard work.
Graham was so caring and understanding like he was friends with Marley for years, Graham was my third dog trainer I got and will be the last.
The tricks on relaxing the dog to get better results I practice on my 3 month old baby and she went to sleep on the first run..... Which is amazing because it takes 5 goes over 4 hours to get her to sleep.
The whole package is brilliant and more than I had thought. So professional and has 100% results.
Don't think about doing this....... My advice is, what are you waiting for?, call them and have a better life with your dog but remember you have to put in the work and don't let your dog down by getting lazy.
10 out of 10 and even though I had hours of training Graham will still visit me another 2 times to check up and see how I am coming along.

Lee was friendly and personable and came across as very experienced and knowledgeable. He soon had Deefa dancing to his tune. I've seen a big
improvement in my dog's behaviour from day one and look forward to ironing out one or two more problems on the next visit.
24th April 2018Angela Young dealt with:
What can I say....
Angela came to visit our 9month old Doberman Kobi who was having problems with hyperactivity and jumping up accidentally hurting us due to his size. Separation anxiety and also guarding me and the house.
Angela stayed over 5 hours working with myself and Kobi. Kobi immediately started to show an interest in the games and training and instantly I knew this was the training for us.
Angela had left us with lots of knowledge and some homework to be getting on with.
Today is day 7 and Kobi is actually thriving with the new rules and boundaries he is much more relaxed and understands what is expected of him. Kobi is turning into a real gentleman.

Lynn was an excellent trainer and she managed to control Donnie easily
23rd April 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was great with us and taught us the techniques to use on Poppy when she mis-behaved. We are still getting used to doing it but need to do it much less each day. She is much calmer but is still our bouncy ball of energy - just quieter!
We thought she was excited when people came to the house and Gina taught us that by looking at her body language she could tell that she was actually frightened and felt the need to protect us. We are taking away that feeling by showing her we are in charge and she certainly seems much calmer when people come in with almost no barking at all.
18th April 2018Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was terrific! She came in and immediately i could see a difference in the way Lola was responding. She put into perspective the reasons behind the different issues we were having with Lola. it was an incredible learning experience. It has been two weeks since the initial lesson and though there are have been times we both have faulted, but we just take a breath and get right back to the techniques that Lynn taught us. Over all there has been a huge change in Lola. She is definitely a calmer dog. Thanks Lynn!

15th April 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I was so anxious about the first lesson as I expected my dog to work hard to get rid of Graham but by the end of the lesson both the dog and myself were relaxed, this was thanks to Graham being so understanding and putting us both at ease. I no longer felt like a terrible dog owner and am really looking forward to the next lesson.
This owner has a 6 year old Rottweiler who uses his weight and size to intimidate visitors. This breed does guard by nature and needs clear boundaries and training as to what is expected. He owner has done a good job with a difficult dog and his dog responded well to the training.
