30th October 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
The training went very well not only for the two dogs but for us as owners. We have learnt to communicate with our girls, each of which have separate problems but they have a common issue which is fear. We are both feel more confident when taking them out.
Tonight I took both dogs out alone only this time I did not come home feeling extremely stressed, as Sally did not pull me along the road, and I wasn't concerned Shirley was going to lunge at another dog in the street - something she does out of fear. It's a joy to see Shirley off high alert, and enjoying her walk and clearly more relaxed. Oh and people can now knock on my door and speak and come in the house wwithout two dogs barking and growling at them....we have practiced this several times already.
Kevin is a lovely man, calm with a lot of patience. Importantly he instills confidence, he has given me a toolkit for life so I can enjoy my dogs and they can enjoy their time with us. Kevin left us detailed but easily understood instructions . We will need to work with the girls as Rome cannot be built in one day, but I am really looking forward to walking them tomorrow.

29th October 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was very professional and took time to understand the underlying reason behind Inca's behaviour. She didn't just offer general training but tailored it to Inca's personality. She identified that some of the behaviour Inca displays is purely her character and shouldn't and can't be changed, but that it's also not negative but simply not what we would ideally like (i.e. we want her to be friendlier to strangers but she's never going to be that sort of dog). Lynn helped us to accept that and tackle the other problems using positive correction techniques and by changing our approach to Inca; improving our passive leadership.
29th October 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon has been supporting us with the training of our young dog for the past 12 months and we have seen a vast improvement in all the issues on our initial list, they have been addressed as well as others that we didn't know about at the time !! Sharon has trained us to be more assertive and calm in the handling of our dog and this is reflected in his behaviour. Thank you for all your help.
28th October 2015Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle was very useful, and has given us a number of things to work on with our puppy. We had previously been getting up at 5am every morning due to barking, but we have put her suggestions into place and can now stay in bad while still stopping the barking.
28th October 2015Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda had Myson walking so nicely on the lead. She was also teaching us distraction tactics, she makes you feel that nothing is insurmountable.

The training was excellent and has given me the confidence to know I will succeed and have a well behaved dog. The training is set out well on the display sheets. I would recommend Bark Busters to others.
28th October 2015Shauna Hoey dealt with:
After the first session we could see Cody was responding slowly and could see he was taking new words we have been teaching him. Can't wait to see a massive change in a few months. Thanks

27th October 2015Angela Young dealt with:
We were absolutely amazed with the fantastic training Angela provided and she even gave us dietary tips. Within Angela"s first visit we saw a massive difference in behaviour and are now continuing with our plan. We are able to contact Angela at any time and she has already helped us again. We can't speak highly enough of this service provided at home, and would definitely recommend.
It's not always easy training a puppy, but when you have 2 lively pups that have recently been introduced to your home, you really do have your work cut out! These beautiful little girls get along so well together but they needed some help with toileting, barking and walking nicely on the lead. Their lovely owners are working very well with the training plan and I'm sure that over the next few weeks, with consistency, they will see a long term improvement in the girls' behaviour. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
25th October 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
We have been working Sharon for several months now to learn to manage the whirlwind pooch that is Belle! Thus far she has managed to turn a pretty dire situation (where we weren't sure if we were the right home for her), into a much more settled home (where this little rescue dog definitely rules the roost!) From dietary advice, attentiveness training, loose lead walking and generally helping us all find a mutual way to 'communicate' and start to have some fun....we can't thank you enough Sharon, and are all really looking forward to future sessions to continue the good work already started.
25th October 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was very understanding of our and barney's situation. She set up a plan tailored just for barney and not just a general plan. She reassured us that barney can be helped with her guidance.
