28th July 2019Gina Hinsley dealt with:
We contacted Bark Busters to help us with our 7 month old pug puppy. He's generally very good, but was barking a lot, particularly in our back garden. My husband and I really enjoyed our first session with Gina. She was friendly and professional. Gina has been very helpful via email since our session as well. We found the theory behind the practical training very informative, it explained why we were being shown to train Frank in a certain way, rather that just showing us what to do. It's been just over a week since our first session and we are already seeing some progress with Frank. We are going to continue to train him the way Gina showed us, and we're hopeful that his behaviour will continue to improve. We would definitely recommend Gina, and Bark Busters to anyone considering a dog trainer. We're looking forward to our next sessions.

27th July 2019Manda Denny dealt with:
We are trying hard to do everything Manda requested and Oliver has improved slightly, but it has only been less than a week, and the hot weather has not helped.

27th July 2019Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Io was really great. We learnt so much. It was such a good session which left us feeling more confident about what we were doing with our puppy Buzz. We still need to work hard at the training and consult the notes that Jo left. We can also contact Jo if we are worried about anything. Excellent.
Buss belongs to the Daughter and is looked after by both Mother and Daughter, . He wasn't keen on being away from the Daughter and was very upset whenever she went out. Needless to say this was upsetting for all concerned. This is not unusual It can be traumatic for some puppies leaving their siblings and they can latch onto either all humans or in some cases just one human to make them feel more secure. His owners are working now on building Buzz;s confidence and is already much happier.

27th July 2019Alex Fraser dealt with:
All I can say is thank you Alex, you are a god send. Me and my girlfriend haven’t left our house in over 6 months, due to our dog with severe separation anxiety, and we were having issues with her giddiness and jumping up at people and being overly clingy with us. He was very friendly, very professional and we are looking forward to our future sessions. We purchased the years package and it was money definitely well spent. Thank you so much
Separation anxiety can make an owner feel like they are a prisoner in their own home. They worry as to what they will return to if they go out, even for just a short while. Plus they worry about their dog being unhappy and stressed! My job is to determine the root cause of any behavioural issue and then give the owners the tools and skills to resolve the issue(s). Some issues can virtually be resolved by the end of the first session, however some can take time. Separation Anxiety is often a slow burner, but if the owners are prepared to put the work in, we’ll get there in the end. I’m looking forward to catching up with these 3 in a few weeks!

26th July 2019Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo provided us with an easy to understand and practical training plan, she is also very knowledgable regarding the behavioural issues we had with our puppy Rocky, and it was clear from the start that she has a connection and love for dogs. Rocky really enjoys the training that Jo set out for us, and we have noticed good progression so far and as a bonus it really tires him out! Overall the training so far has been well worth the money and I can't recommend Jo strongly enough.
Rocky is a English Bulldog. They have the reputation for being stubborn when it comes to training but it is often finding what motivates the dog most and using this to reinforce all the good behaviour you want. Rocky's owners have been doing lots of very short sessions with play and rest in between and have kept their puppy happy and motivated. He is therefore advancing very quickly for such a young dog.

24th July 2019Lynn Prentice dealt with:
As soon as Lynn arrived, I knew we had made a great investment in the future happiness of our new 11 week old puppy. He had already developed some bad habits and we wanted to ensure we were giving him the best chance at becoming a calm dog. He is a stubborn and confident little dog already so we wanted him to start learning some good manners especially as he will grow into a much larger dog and will be socialised in a number of scenarios where we don't want him to be stressed. I also have a nieces and nephews so wanted some advice on how to manage him around excitable children. Its been a day since Lynn has visited and we started putting the lessons into practice straight away which has meant a calmer environment for us all already. Thank you Lynn for helping us out and we look forward to more productive sessions with Rupert. I would thoroughly recommend BarkBusters to anyone *****

24th July 2019Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon came to us for the first time and we learnt so much in the 3.5 hours she was with us. She is amazing! We now understand Loki a little better than before and can’t wait to learn more. Loki is doing amazing at everything we have been shown! Looking forward for the next year with Sharon and in learning more and more!
Neston, Cheshire (Testimonial)
23rd July 2019Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was Brilliant, he was very patient and explained the training clearly and thoroughly. He helped me to understand Layla's behaviour and how it could be changed. Layla responded very quickly to the training and I have seen positive results! Kevin left detailed instructions after the session to help me continue to lead Layla which has been a great support. I would highly recommend Kevin.
Bishopsteignton, Devon (Testimonial)
22nd July 2019Lee Hardy dealt with:
We was really struggling to understand why our dog had changed so suddenly. We was struggling to control the barking and lunging and was unable to have people around our house including family. Lee was so helpful and informative with our dog. We could not have asked for better service. Was on time and was very patient. The training that was provided to us seems to be helping us control the dogs barking and lunging and we are now able to have people round the house as the training is continuous but does seem to be having a positive effect

18th July 2019Lee Hardy dealt with:
I was very impressed with the way Lee showed me how to deal with unnecessary barking and how quickly Bertie responded to the training. Life is much quieter and calmer after only one training session
