Training instructions by Anthony were easy to follow and is progressing slowly bu surely. My wife and I feel more confident due to Anthony's help and look forward to him coming to visit again in the very near future.

23rd May 2019Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I thought Honey didn't like me until I got Jo in and the difference in 5 weeks is just amazing. She has been so helpful. Thank you so much.
Honey is a 5 year old rescue Bichon Friese. She guards items and bit her owner when her owner didn't realise she had something in her mouth. This type of behaviour is natural to a dog and they only behave in this way when they feel under threat. It is very upsetting for owners, but there is a lot that can be done to rebuild relationships and to prevent this type of behaviour happening again. This owner has worked hard with Honey and has made considerable progress in a short period of time.

23rd May 2019Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Problem with my dog barking when i left her. Estelle watched how we interacted and what her triggers were, we discussed her routines etc and pointed out things that i didn't even realise i was doing that made her feel responsible for me and the home. We set a plan of action of all the little things that made her anxious and caused her to bark and in the first few days she went from 45 minutes of barking when i left her to the odd yap and howl. She did a 5 min and 12 min howl last week but the last 3 times i have recorded her she did nothing when i left. I've booked Estelle to come back in about a month to address smaller issues but so far all is going well, not perfect yet but thankfully no longer a major issue.

22nd May 2019Lee Hardy dealt with:
I originally met Lee over 11 years ago when he helped with Ruby my Red Patterdale Terrier. She was out of control, and very aggressive towards me and my son as well as the cats. Ruby is now 12 and a lovely calm well natured dog, this is directly linked to the training and support Lee has given. We then introduced our new puppy Rosie who is a Red Patterpoo. I didn’t anticipate Ruby wanting to eat Rosie. Lee again came to our rescue AKA the dog whisperer! I have never had such a young small pup and Lee has addressed my anxiety as well Ruby’s. We are now on track for a harmonious home again. Lee always answers any of my questions promptly and clearly. I can honestly say Lee is a credit to Bark Busters and I always spread the level of service I continually receive.

22nd May 2019Lee Hardy dealt with:
Absolutely brilliant first session with Lee. He is keen to get to the bottom of the issues straight away. He reassure us and got us to train near enough straight away. He was aware of my nervousness due to our two dogs fighting but made sure I was comfortable in doing the training with no fear. It’s been a week now and we’ve seen a change already in our dogs. Very pleased and can’t wait to continue with Lee.

21st May 2019Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Absolutely brilliant. Estelle is an excellent trainer. I had a lot of confidence in what she was teaching Denzil and I. It's great to know that back up is available if needed and that we can discuss progress next week.

19th May 2019Lynn Prentice dealt with:
One week on and I’m still shocked how instant the changes were. After a 3 hour visit Barney was responding immediately and positively to the new rules. It really is changing our lives for the better and we have a much more calm and content dog!
Harlow, Essex (Testimonial)
19th May 2019Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
JO WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND. THE DOGS REACTED WELL TO HER AND SOME PROGRESS WAS MADE DURING THE FIRST VISIT! WE DISCUSSED AT LENGTH ALL THE PROBLEMS AND JO EXPLAINED WHY THESE HABITS WERE HAPPENING. I WAS VERY RELIEVED THAT JO DID NOT WORRY ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF PROBLEMS I WAS INCURRING AND WE METHODICALLY WORKED THROUGH MY LIST. SINCE JO LEFT I HAVE BEEN ADAPTING SOME OF THE COMMANDS AND REWARDS AND CAN SEE A DIFFERENCE ALREADY. MUCH TO MY NEIGHBOURS APPRECIATION
This owner has 3 dogs ranging from very small to very large and a particularly active life caring for family members with specific needs and also horses. Her dogs absolutely adore her and see her as very exciting as she does everything for them. The introduction of her large third rescue dog meant that excitement was getting out of hand and the dogs were barking at her and squabbling with each other. This is not a quick fix and takes time and commitment to prevent accidental reinforcement of bad behaviour and direct dogs to good behaviour. As her dogs are rescues they also have other issues but I am confident that this owner will be successful in dealing with their problems.
Wickford, Essex (Testimonial)
19th May 2019Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was very clear and patient when explaining the training techniques we needed to use to prevent our dog from continuing to act in an aggressive manner to other dogs. There were 3 of us to explain and demonstrate to and she spent time with each of us. We were encouraged during the session when we saw that our dog immediately responded well to the techniques Tina used which we then each followed. We have been using the same training techniques for just over a week now and have seen a big improvement already. We have tried various types of training before to resolve his aggression but non have been effective previously. We are very thankful that Tina has given us the tools to work with to train him out of his behaviour so we can enjoy taking him out for walks again and be sociable with others dogs.
A super quick bright dog had been bitten to another dog some time ago and progressively became more anxious and defensive when seeing other dogs. The family were keen to help him so that he would relax and walk past other dogs and be safe to let off lead and not rush barking at dogs he didn't know. He was a star and his family worked well with the techniques I demonstrated and he began to improve very quickly on the day. Now, with such committed owners, there's no reason why they can't succeed.
