....I'm really pleased to tell you that I am still mega chuffed with Bert and her behaviour. I'm most pleased with the way she is around the house, I know I told you this the last time that we talked but I'm totally amazed that right from the minute you left after your first visit shes been brilliant. She stays where youve told her to if I have to go upstairs and she doesn’t need to follow me around each time I move to a different room. She hasnt tried at all to jump on the couch since then and is more than happy to sit on the floor by my feet or lay in her bed and chew on her bone or just watch the TV!
She is still more excited than I maybe would like when someone knocks at the door but any nonsense is over with quickly and without much of a fuss. When I think back to the way she was before you coming, I cant believe its the same dog. I even had her in the lounge with me when one of my most pickiest of friend came by and she was no bother at all.
Walking is also now a very enjoyable rather than the ridiculous nonsense that was before your visits. Me and Bert walk all over now and I can even take her into beer gardens and the like, where theres people(!), and once she has her bearings is more than comfortable to sit and watch the world go by. Getting by dogs is getting better each time but has taken her a little longer to accept than the walking. If things get so silly when another dog is near and i havent managed to get by without a fuss, I found that a good way to get passed is to sit Bert down whilst the other one goes by. When I do this shes happy to sit a watch the other dog go past without pulling towards it so Im not sure why she cant do it whilst shes on her feet?!
...So touch wood all seems to be well and I am loving the new and improved Bert! My Mum asks each week if she can have her for a night because shes that good now its an absolute pleasure to have her! I cant thank you enough for all you have done for Bert and also for me, it was beginning to get a bit much and i was wondering how much longer i could cope with the chaos that Bert caused, but now everything is fabulous! Youve done a great job and that means the world to me so thankyou very much and youve been lovely with it, extremely helpful and patient, the whole experience has been a pleasure and youve made it totally worth while...
It may seem like you work with me and Bert is finished, but before you breath a sigh of relief, dont! Ill be sure to be straight back in touch if anything else crops up (until March anyway..)

Even after just one lesson, Blake's attitude and demeanor was much better. He now knows I am the dominant person and will abey much quicker. Our walks are much more stress free and he can see other dogs without barking and pulling after them. Even in the car I can make him stop barking quickly. I am looking forward to his next session.

A very positive training session. Alfie now walks beautifully on the lead and so far has been more inclined to follow me off lead. We are still working on visitor aggresion but confident with more work we will get there. Thanks Andy!

Janet was really friendly and she has completely transformed our dog in the first session. We have been dealing with severe separation anxiety for 18 months and we feel like a huge weight has been lifted from us because we can now enjoy our dog instead of stressing about him all the time.
11th June 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
Phillip clearly cares about our dog (Rufus) wellbeing. He is firm, kind and professional and has made my life much easier! Thank you Bark Busters and keep up the good work.
Rufus is a 4 month old cross spaniel/terrier puppy, with a lovely confident nature. His owners wanted to get it right from the very beginning to give Rufus the best up bringing. We have house trained him within 3 weeks and he is now progressing well with general obedience and lead walking. Rufus has just commenced his recall, attentiveness and distance control training and will be ready to be let off lead in 5 weeks time.
10th June 2009Neil Price dealt with:
We knew Paddy would require training when we adopted him, but it turned out not to be simple obediance training, he had serious issues we had no idea how to deal with. Neil was friendly and approachable, he took control and there are slight improvements after only one visit.
10th June 2009Janet Goosen dealt with:
We saw an immediate difference in both dogs, and the next day it was as if both dogs had been swopped in the night! We know we will have to keep up the training and be consistent.

Jacquie was very helpful. I think Tom & I learnt a lot.
8th June 2009Richard Brewster dealt with:
Learning some really simple techniques made a huge difference. A down to earth, no-nonsense approach. After months with an aggressive, disobedient mutt, it was amazing to see what a difference just one afternoon of training could make. Ta very much.
