15th November 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We had rescued Jet from the RSPCA in June 2017. The RSPCA unfortunately did not make us aware of any of his problems.90% a gentleman but 10% an absolute horror both towards us and other dogs. We had even considered having him put to sleep as we didn't think it would be fair to him or others to try and rehome but we had fallen in love with him and couldn't let him go. He had a severe aggression problem such as us using the telephone, separtion which to be fair is understandable but aggression isn't and cannot be tolerated. We were given several recommendations of where and whom to contact. We encountered a pretty serious behavioural problem and recalled being told of a trainer called Anthony with Bark Busters. This was the last resort but how we wished we had contacted you earlier. AMAZING! from the first phone call and speaking to Janet to Anthony's visit. We know this will be a long process but at least now we are able to be the leader and hopefully make him less anxious about protecting. Everyday we make a little bit of progress but it is all for the better and he is a lot more relaxed about not having to guard all the time and being the boss! Thank you Anthny for your time and patience whilst visiting us and we look forward to being able to move onto the next part of the programme very soon.
15th November 2017Isla Clarke dealt with:
Nelson has always been a very anxious little dog who needs to be by my side 24/7 and I genuinely believed was beyond help! My main issue was that Nelson slept on my bed and if I achieved nothing other in my 12 month training course with Isla, I just wanted him to sleep in his own bed at night. I had tried various techniques with no joy whatsoever yet with the help and guidance from Isla, I achieved this in the very first session! We have continued to work together to understand Nelsons anxiety and find solutions which has resulted in a much happier and calmer little dog. I find the sessions really interesting as Isla interprets Nelsons behaviour and translates this back to me. Family and friends have all noticed a difference in his behaviour and I honestly couldn't recommend this training enough!

Very impressed with Angela she tells you where your going wrong and Chloe picked things up straight away she is a lot more calmer now after 1 visit can’t wait for the next visit.
14th November 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
We felt that Lee understood the frustrations we were facing and he gave us some practical advice and techniques to assist in the training. Whilst we don’t expect it will be a ‘quick fix’ we feel confident that we have the first steps in an achievable plan.
14th November 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was very knowledgeable and, after clearly explaining to us the background information and training methods used, she met Dilys and Morgan and very quickly identified the issues (mainly us!). After some detailed instructions on the training we needed to do, and explanations to help us understand dog language, she provided us with all the tools and techniques we needed to carry on the training ourselves. There were immediate effects, and Dilys has continued to improve on her behaviour.
12th November 2017Angela Young dealt with:
First session with Angela was great, she invested time in talking to both my husband and myself to identify our key concerns with how to support Bob who is a rescue dog and make him confident in his new home. We had made the mistake of over compensating to make him want to be with us, but Angela was able to demonstrate that was actually making Bob more anxious so we practiced activities in the home which showed him we were pack leaders. We had positive results, but Angela was clear we must practise everyday. We both feel more confident and proud of how Bob responded. Can’t wait for next session.
10th November 2017Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Very well received by the dog, not had any problems since. Jacquie was very informative and easy to understand, would recommend to anyone else that we knew had any issues.
10th November 2017Shauna Hoey dealt with:
3 days ago Shauna visited myself and my lovely but very energetic and anxious little Cockapoo, Raymond. Within the time Shauna was here Raymond's behaviour changed so much for the better and even though this is just the start and he has a long way to go, I am so so impressed at the difference in him after just a few days. Shauna is so personable and non judgemental that I felt completely comfortable and so pleased we made the investment to get Raymond this training.

10th November 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Where do we start.. Graham came to see us as we had introduced a 2 year old miniature schnauzer to our family 6 months ago and could NOT integrate her with our cats. We have never owned dogs before and were not aware of quite how badly we were struggling. Graham started our session with a very informative reason for why dogs behave the way they do and just why Lola was suffering as she was. He observed her quietly whilst listening to us and getting to know how our household works. We then had very comprehensive command training, taking us right back to basics and getting the heirarchy of the house back in the right order!
By the end of the session, he actually had us bring one of the cats into the room with her and she did not make a sound, UNBELIEVABLE! We now have a very comprehensive training programme to follow for the next few weeks before our next session but more importantly the security of being able to contact Graham whenever we need.
What started out with us gulping at the cost, we have very quickly learned that this is unbelievable value for money and extremely well spent.
First class service which has led us to think we may well actually be able to live in harmony with all of our beloved pets!
9th November 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
Brilliant day; results from first session that I did not expect. Main problem was barking at other dogs but the session goes back to basics and you identify what little habits you have in the home which all have a knock on effect. Even the reassurance of why he was doing it and how my reaction made it worse just made me feel better plus I had the confidence to let him off the lead which I never believed I would. Can’t wait for the next session!
To be the second owners of a dog can sometimes have its problems and the more owners worry about the behavioural issues of their dog, the worse the dog can become. Todays session went really well and I'm not sure who is looking forward to the second session more, me or his owners.
