27th November 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We could not be happier with the outcome of our first training session!! Jo is incredibly hands on, non judgmental, straight talking and really takes the time to listen to your concerns.
Jo also appreciates that every dog and family are different and that training sometimes needs a flexible approach to work for everyone. We will be working hard now to put everything on to practice (Jo makes everything look so easy!) And it is... once you have mastered things :)
I can’t recommend Jo highly enough. She has given us the tools and confidence to ensure that we guide Teddy to being a happy, fun loving (but obedient) dog.
Thanks Jo for everything. We look forward to seeing you again in a months time!
These owners have a lovely Labradoodle who is a typical high energy adolescent dog. They have done some good basic training, but this was coming a little unstuck as he grew into a teenager who was pushing the boundaries. This is always difficult because dog training is not "one size fits all". It has to take into account the dog, its nature, how quick he or she learns and what environment the dog is living in. Teddy is very bright and responded really well to guidance and focus work. He loves to please and once he knew what was wanted he was really eager to engage in training.
24th November 2017Aaron Noble dealt with:
Fantastic first meeting with Aaron who was so calm and kind to our very timid 9mth old Bedlington Terrier that we have just got.
We can’t thank Aaron enough for the time he spent with her and the encouragement he gave us. We can’t wait until our next meeting for more great hints and sound advice.
23rd November 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Very well explained what we need to do. Excellent all round,
This lovely boy was lucky to find a new home with these lovely people! He has some issues, but is basically a lovely boy who needs simple rules and boundaries and is then happy!
21st November 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony listened really carefully to the problems we had with the 3 dogs. He explained the training techniques and theory behind it very well and made everything clear and easy to understand. The first session was over 3 hours long so was very comprehensive. There was alot to take in but the dogs responded really well, almost immediately. The follow up service was very efficient; Anthony sent me lots of extra information for me to read through. I am looking forward to the next session and I feel much more confident now that, together, we will be able to address the issues which we have with the dogs. I would highly recommend Anthony and Barkbusters.
20th November 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony re-assured us that Elliott was not as bad as we thought he was, we are not making a lot of progress as a lot of things were done with him on his own, but he is usually with our other two dogs, which distracts him from us. We will definitely need help when walking all three dogs. We are very pleased that we have instigated this and with Anthony's help we will get there.
19th November 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
Absolutely awesome. Jack was 10 weeks old and we had had him a week. He would not settle in the crate so we were experiencing sleepless nights because of his barking,whining and crying. He was completely stressed out.
Lee visited us after the first week and observed Jack around us and our other two dogs. Lee explained that Jack was not suffering from separation anxiety as I thought but letting us know that he was the boss.
Lee introduced us to the technique. Within half an hour, Jack was in his crate and sleeping soundly.
I used the same technique when it was time for bed and after 15 minutes Jack was settled and asleep. We used this technique for a couple of nights but Jack now goes to bed straight away with no issues and only cries to let us know that he needs the toilet. Mostly he sleeps through from 10 o’clock until 6 in the morning.
We are continuing with the training with further home training visits booked.
I cannot reccomend Bark Busters and Lee enough.
18th November 2017Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Did not know what to expect at all but session turned out to be so informative and enjoyable both for Elsie and ourselves. Sharon talked to us for a while about the difficulties we had with Elsie and explained things we were doing that weren't helping! She then did some exercises with Elsie and we got to practice too, you could see Elsie was really enjoying using her brain to think and learn. We have continued with the exercises Sharon showed us and Elsie is doing good. It's small steps but we feel confident Elsie will get there as will we with Sharon's help.
18th November 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony was very professional and polite. He explained how the session would run and was very clear in his descriptions of what we would be doing and how this would influence the behaviour of Jackson. Techniques were described well and demonstrated before being applied.

17th November 2017Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
I have a 16 month old Poochon called Bailey and was stressing the family with constant barking out of the window all day long, we were constantly shouting at him with no response. He had separation issues with myself and I felt constantly tied to him. I called Bark Busters and was visited by Jacquie OMG she's amazing i have a new dog and people can't believe the difference after just one visit, still ongoing with a couple of trivial problems but amazing !!! thank you so much Jacquie and would highly recommend you xxxx
