14th September 2018Lee Hardy dealt with:
Lee arrived on time and listened to the problems we were having with Bella (mini yorkshire terrier) which was mainly barking outside when we went out to work each day. We did several mock situations to find out the triggers for the barking. Lee explained what i needed to do - and i am very surprised that Bella has responded to the training very well and in no time at all. I was also told that i must be the pack leader, as Bella seemed to think she was - Lee explained i needed to ignore her request's for attention ie: jumping to be picked up on the sofa and pawing me and to make it my decision to show her attention. I must say for an old dog (she is 12) i was amazed at how well she has adapted. We are still working on the toileting at night- but i think she is getting better and Lee has suggested reducing the area in which she sleeps, as he feels she probably doesnt feel safe and is weeing to put down markers. We havent tried this as yet - but one thing at a time. The neighbours have said the barking has drastically reduced and some days they dont hear her at all. Should have called in Barkbusters years ago.

12th September 2018David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Excellent! Very impressed. It's the first weekend that as a family we have been able to get up & walk into different rooms without Coco spinning around & barking. After already having two different trainers to the house we can not believe the difference in her as we got told there was nothing can be done to stop the barking & basically we had to put up with it. Which as you can imagine living with constant barking was a nightmare. Although it's been less than a week since meeting & working with David I feel there has already been a significant change in all the dogs behaviour. Blue, Levi & Tinkerbell seem more calmer & not jumping up as much. Thank you David for your advice & support. Michelle

10th September 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We are very happy with the training provided by Graham and Jo. They are very familiar with the specific needs of a greyhound and they are very supportive with the ongoing training. We highly recommend their service. Many thanks! Flor and Tara
Tara is a retired Greyhound. Racing Greyhounds are usually kept in pairs in kennels so when they come to our homes they have to adjust to home life (which a Greyhound always loves!!). They also have to adjust to being without another dog and can have separation anxiety as a result. Greyhounds can struggle with stairs and different floor surfaces simply because they haven't experienced it before. They also tend to react to seeing small animals when out on a walk as they have been trained to chase them. Tara's problems were typical and her owners have been working diligently on overcoming her anxieties. She is slightly unusual in that most Greyhounds are really interested in their owners so can seem aloof to family, visitors and people they meet, but Tara is very friendly and delights in having attention as well as obviously adoring her owners.

10th September 2018Gavin Chambers dealt with:
Gavin is an excellent trainer. Very knowledgeable and so easy to get on with. He is very professional but very approachable too with a great sense of humour. He gave us plenty of advice, which we are following. After just a few days, we are starting to see a small improvement in our dogs behaviour. We would recommend Gavin to anyone having problems with their dog.

6th September 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We are extremely pleased with the advice and training techniques shown and applied to our Dog BENJI He has responded very positive to all command's and is now showing to be a very nice and happy dog, we now look forward to taking him out and continuing with his training Thanks to BARK BUSTERS.
Benji is a very fearful Cavalier King Charles/Pug cross who was getting very upset and behaving as if he had to protect his owners against visitors and when visiting other peoples houses. He also couldn't cope with going to cafes because people would constantly approach him as he is such a good looking dog. Once his owners were able to demonstrate to Benjii that this wasn't needed and instead he should focus on them and follow their lead he became a much more relaxed and happy dog. He still has fears so it will take time and lots of practice to build up his confidence, but his owners now have the training techniques to help Benji and have been working hard to turn the problem around with good results so far.

3rd September 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo gave me a lot of time to introduce ways I could work with Perry. She was a good listener and gave me tips to keep Perry’s attention.
Perry is a lovely natured long haired miniature Dachshund. Now he has got to his adolescence he has been exhibiting some common bad behaviours such as barking, pulling on the lead and not listening when he is called. He lives on a very busy road and as he loves people he tries to get out of the front door to greet people and try to visit the neighbours which is dangerous for any dog. He responded really well to training and I am looking forward to seeing him and his owner again.

As well as giving me tips on leadwalking and recall which were my main concerns, Jackie helped me relax with Poppy so that the dog could not feel my anxiety.
