21st July 2015Alex Fraser dealt with:
We were at the end of our tether with our little French Bulldog. He used to bark if anybody walked passed our house and he used to bark a lot if somebody came into our house. He also used to snap at other dogs when we walked him because he was attacked by a big dog when he was younger. following our training with Alex we quickly stopped his barking which is great. It has taken longer to stop him snapping at other dogs, but he is so much better we no longer get stressed when we walk him. Thank you so much for all your help Alex
He is a lovely little boy, but he was simply a bit nervous hence his barking and dog aggression. Some issues do take longer to resolve than others however to resolve any of his issues it is important that he starts to feel safe when he is with his owners so that he doesn't feel he has to bark or protect himself when out on walks. Great progress has been made and I am so proud of both the dog and his owners.

Adequate time was given at the lesson and Alex made sure I fully understood his instructions; whilst he assessed me carry out his instructions. On Alex's arrival it was a mad house; upon him leaving, it was like heaven. He left me feeling confident I could manage the behaviours discussed during the first lesson. Top class instructor.
As I entered the customer's house for the first time, it was a little difficult to hear oneself think with 6 little dogs all barking away excitedly!! Besides the barking, I soon discovered there were a number of issues that we needed to deal with which included some sibling rivalry and a lot of jumping up. Before long we had restored calm in her home and all the dogs were listening to her and were much more focused on their new pack leader. We built in some ground rules and although all of the dogs were used to jumping up on the couches when ever they wanted, they soon all settled together on a comfy blanket on the floor. It was lovely to see. The most surprising thing of all was that before I left the family cat came into the front room for the first time ever due to the fact the room was so much calmer. The owner nearly fell off her seat. I can't wait to return and see how they are all doing.

on the initial visit we were surprised at how quick Bear could learn from somebody he had never met before. Julie showed us the error of our ways (being trained by Bear without us knowing it ;)) and showed us the correct way to respond to his caniving demands. we have still got a way to go with him but are confident that we have called the right people to help us get the result we want.
Bear is such a lovely boy, and I'm sure he will respond really well to the changes being made by his owners.

We had our visit from Angela on Friday and learned so much. Who knew that our little Jack Russell, Milly, had us so well trained! Within the first few hours we were shown and practised techniques to stop the dog jumping up at visitors and attacking the post. 2 days in and Milly is responding well to the training. Thank you Angela.
Milly is the most adorable, intelligent little girl and as her Mum has said, was a very good trainer! It was lovely to see her responding so well to the training. Within the first session she was no longer attacking the post and was able to watch it coming through the letterbox from a distance. It will take time and consistency in the training to completely overcome her attraction to the post and to make her more relaxed and I'm confident that her Mum and Dad will keep practicing all of the training exercises in their plan so that Milly gets the full benefit of her training. Thanks for choosing Bark Busters, I look forward to seeing you and Milly again soon.
18th July 2015Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was very friendly and I found her easy to talk to about Maisie's behaviour and didn't feel like I was being judged. Her advice was very informative and was explained to me in a way that I understood, it just seemed so obvious once I had spoken to her. We started training on various issues and Tina showed me what I needed to do. I noticed a difference straight away. I am continuing with all the exercises and am seeing an improvement every day.
Maisie is a nervous girl and needs to feel safe and gently controlled and not that she has to alert her owners to every sound outside! In the past she has been aggressive to dogs and people as she really didn't know how to handle the situations. Now that her owner is taking the leading role, she will feel safe and secure and not have to make decisions; that's her owners job! She also has a confident tiny pup and it's important that the pup doesn't learn any bad habits!
18th July 2015Neil Price dealt with:
I asked for assistance with Scooby as he had a few incidents with other dogs after they had snapped at him, as he is a rescue dog and not getting much information on his past.
He is doing really well I am pleased with his progress
17th July 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was so great right from the moment she arrived. She was calm and collected and helped me with issues I had and also ones I didnt know I had! She not only gave me tips but showed me how to do it and how to do it effectively. Harley is an excitable puppy that does tend to bite, but within the week, this has decreased. I was a bit worried about using Barkbusters intially because of the price, but I can categorically say she was worth every penny and I loved that she also gave me the tools to use to help with my training. Thanks Lynn!
16th July 2015Neil Price dealt with:
Neil was lovely and put Pluto and I at ease straight away. He didn't look horrified as I reeled off his 'issues' and assured me all would be well. Pluto is already improving after only a week and seems to enjoy the homework Neil left us!

15th July 2015Tina Edwards dealt with:
Training was great. We have a long list of training instructions to follow for our three dogs. Tina has been very helpful, she has replied quickly to texts and phone calls when I have needed advice. She is coming back round to continue work on their excessive barking. I have recommended bark busters to friends.
A good solid first session, but one of the dogs is still feeling that he has to be on guard for the rest of the pack! Being an anxious/nervous boy it's important to show him that he can be "off duty" and that the humans can control visitors etc!
