26th June 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Excellent technique, learnt how to control the mouthing. Still a work in progress but delighted with the results after one session. Titan is learning this is not acceptable behaviour and will calm down. Would recommend without any hesitation as so impressed with the results.
Titan is a lovely natured Staffordshire Bull Terrier that his owners rehomed from the RSPCA. As a breed it is not uncommon for Staffies to be mouth orientated and lick, mouth and sometimes even nip when they are excited. In Titans case this was so excessive that his owners had to muzzle him when they had visitors. It is not easy to stop this behaviour and his owners have been very committed to teaching him good behaviour as well as dealing with his bad behaviour so friends and family can see what a truly wonderful dog he is.

26th June 2018Isla Clarke dealt with:
Was put straight at ease with Isla, after a conversation on getting to know Louie we preceded to work on Louies excited behaviour on greeting people. We also worked on Louies sit and stay. After almost a week on working on his training I'm pleased to say he's responding well and is eagar to please, it's like I'm finally talking in a language he understands. I look forward to Louies next lesson with Isla the dreaded out on the lead, but I'm more than confident Isla is the lady to put us on the right track to make walking a joy and not a tug of war.

25th June 2018Liz Johnson dealt with:
Liz was really good, positive and encouraging. Her advice was sound and the proof was the response from Benji, we could even see a change in his behaviour during this visit. Liz has given us the confidence to be more forward with Benji. I would strongly recommend Bark Busters to anyone that has an animal with behaviour issues. A great help and sound advice.

24th June 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo was very patient and took time to understand Stan's behaviour before diagnosing him. She has promised us some follow up context on dog anxiety and left some detailed notes as well so was very helpful
Stan is young Cockerpoo who constantly barks for attention. This happens when friends and family visit, when phone calls are made and can even happen when one of his owners come back in the room. The barking is loud and he keeps going for extensive periods of time even when they are giving him attention. Dogs can use attention seeking as a way to cope with stress and Stan is an anxious dog. This is not an easy fix. His owners have clearly been trying very hard to stop it but Stan has learnt what works and knows if he keeps going he will get the attention he craves. At the time of my visit I realised that they were expecting a baby so in addition to dealing with the attention seeking I have forwarded information on preparing Stan for this event which will be essential as he is anxious. In particular his owners can get him used to a crying baby (with a recording) and the fact that they will be occupied with a baby in the near future. Stan is wonderful in all other ways and has been very well trained by his owners so I have every confidence that they will succeed.

21st June 2018David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony's instructions were very clear. He has a patient and friendly demeanour. Tico was very attentive and responded very positively. I didn't feel pressured which helped me to be confident and relaxed. The day went very well and Tico & I made great progress.

20th June 2018David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony spent almost 3 hours with us, involving the whole family in the training and giving us some great tips to work with. We found Anthony to be so helpful and extremely knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend him and bark busters to friends experiencing issues with their dogs.

19th June 2018Manda Denny dealt with:
Manda was awe inspiring right from the first moment Milo met her. In fact it was from the moment he entered the room. Normally he would rush up and greet visitors with too much vigor. He entered the room and quietly walked to Manda, where he sat quietly and followed her commands. I watched in shock, where was my dog?
In a way it was almost a shame that Milo didn’t fully exhibit his usual habits, however I could see that Manda was experienced enough to see through his ‘good behaviour’.
The day went really well and Milo was responding brilliantly. The training was as much about me as it was Milo. I was already aware I had formed some bad habits with Milo.
In the two weeks since he has made some positive improvements. I haven’t been consistent which has hampered our training but we are back on track now and looking forward to working with Manda.
I have complete confidence in Manda’s training methods and know this is an investment that is more than worth it.
Bradford, West Yorkshire (Testimonial)
19th June 2018Lee Hardy dealt with:
We are extremely happy with an instant improvement. Buddy has not jumped up at us at all. He was very calm this morning when he greeted us.
Waiting for visitors to arrive to see how he gets on with meeting them and looking forward to our outside training.
