23rd September 2011Sharon Chapman dealt with:
The techniques Sharon has taught me are working, and my dogs have responded to the training equipmemt Sharon uses well. One of my dogs pulls badly on a lead and I have tried numerous other anti pulling equipment and training methods, all had failed. After working with Sharon he walked nicely on his lead during the first session and he's been pulling on his walks for almost three years! Sharon always makes enough time to work with my dogs for as long as they need. She's happy to listen to your suggestions and will tell you how to do something differently without being too critical. The results we've got so far are very good, and I think we'll be able to get more positive results in future sessions, as the dogs seem to enjoy their training and have shown no signs of being stressed or frustrated when working on something.
21st September 2011David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was very friendly and informative. He explained everything brilliant. We could see the improvement in Tilly by the time he had left after the first session.
21st September 2011Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was very patient and Sophie was on her best behaviour and responded very well to her training. Using the training Tina showed us we have found Sophie more obedient.....she is definitiely barking less and her jumping up is more easily controlled. Will most certainly keep up with Tina's suggestions including changing her diet to include more meat as she seems more settled after we trippled her meat portions and cut down on the carbohydrates. Thanks Tina for all your help!!!
I first saw Sophie as a pup, helping her owners with Puppy Management. They chose Lifetime cover so when they started to get complaints about barking from the neighbours, were able to call and arrange another visit. Sophie is a lovely girl and desperately wants to please her owners, but they'd got out of the "training" habit and of course Sophie had slipped back. I coached the owners after showing Sophie what was required and she responded well to them, beginning to focus once again on what they wanted.

Zoe was excellent.
20th September 2011Tina Edwards dealt with:
The whole family would like to say a massive thankyou to Tina for the time and effort she put in with all of us to help overcome a few issues that had developed with our two little Yorkies, Rocco and Missy. We could tell early on in the sesion that Tina has a wealth of knowledge and is an expert in her field. She made all of us feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout. It is only day 3 and we can all see vast improvements in both our dogs, so thank you again Tina.
Two cute Yorkies (part of the problem!!) who had become very anxious about their role in the household feeling that they had to "guard" all the time and therefore weren't resting properly nor following their owners wishes. Once I had assessed the situation, taking a full history and watching how they interacted with the family I talked through the issues and explained how I intended to work. Opportunities arose during the session for me to coach the family into a change in their behaviour so that the dogs would feel more secure and stop making bad decisions.

20th September 2011Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was prompt and a credit to Bark Busters, she wore the Bark Busters shirt and introduced herself. Isla sat with us both and listened to the problems we were having with Cassie, plus observing other short falls we were not aware of. Then Isla made notes and explained the strategies we should adopt to reduce/stop the mis behaviour that Cassie had acquired. All the strategies Isla explained are quite understandable and achievable with Isla's help. Isla is very professional in her approach and understanding our problems. I would recommend your organisation to anyone who is experiencing problems, especially if all your trainers are as competent as Isla. We are astounded at the progress Cassie has made after only one 3 hour session.
20th September 2011Zoe White dealt with:
I am delighted with Olivia and Lola's progress, it has now been 2 weeks and I can see the difference. They have taken well to the raw diet, I think this has definitely helped with their behaviour. We still have lots to do but I'm convinced that we will get there.
19th September 2011Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
Winston a nine year old Cavalier Spaniel had me trained very well, and TubTub, a three year old Cavalier Spaniel had bad habits including (but not limited to) excessive barking, inappropriate aggression to large dogs, and chewing books to relieve separation anxiety. Phillip's techniques have produced remarkable results in only a few weeks time. Winston and TubTub are happy and I am relieved!

18th September 2011Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Daisy has responded well to attentiveness training and is much better at walking without pulling excessively on the lead.
18th September 2011Isla Clarke dealt with:
Meko refused to walk on a lead before Isla came to visit us, by the end of the session Meko had walked 2 miles and was reacting to other people and their dogs beautifully. Isla is a walking book of knowledge about dogs which is really important, she explained about Meko's body language and what to look for. Isla also explained about the importance of diet. The training was fun and even though Meko was stubborn at first he soon conformed. It felt wonderful to be able to walk Meko, chihuaha's arent just lap dogs.
