Lynn was very helpful and professional. She gave useful tips and we took Bella out with to practice some of the things we had problems with is pulling on the lead and recall.

10th June 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin listened to what we had to say and explained clearly what was needed, was patient with Lola who was (past tense) quite hyper, jumping up and barking at literally anything or anyone that was nearby, within the hour she was completely different and 2 weeks later is still quite relaxed with no barking, cant fault the information, training given, now a pleasure to go out for a walk

9th June 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn is very knowledgeable and understanding; she works with the dogs at home, in their natural environment, which is really important for understanding their behaviour. We've learnt a lot during the first session with Lynn not only about our new puppy, but also about our 6 yrs old 'resident dog'. Their progress since the first training is so encouraging. Lynn left us with lots of advice and training exercises - not just for the dogs, but for us the owners too!
Bedford, Bedfordshire (Testimonial)
8th June 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Was pleased to meet Tina. We had very good first meeting and I am very pleased with training methods. I have even ordered raw food for rusty to try. Have already seen a difference in rusty via training.
Rusty is a slightly anxious boy with lovely humans! However, he gets anxious and defensive around other dogs so we have started some basic work for him to learn to trust his human's decisions. He thoroughly enjoyed our first session doing all the new games and getting lots of attention and praise because we were setting him up to "get it right"!
Chatham, Kent (Testimonial)
7th June 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
We were both very nervous about how both our Shar Pei would react upon Alex's arrival but within minutes we knew that he had the situation under control and this put our minds at ease. We needed Alex's help for our Shar Pei puppy Bentley who was far too keen to greet visitors at the door and was a nightmare on the lead! Primarly, Alex was there to help us with our 1 year old Shar Pei pup but was very aware of the dymnamics between our older Shar Pei girl and Bentley and included Sasha in some of the training which was brilliant. We were hoping to see a small amount of progress at least but we both feel that what we saw today was a huge amount of progress for Bentley. By the end of the 3 hour session, Bentley was already more attentive and responsive to Alex's techniques. We worked on 'border control', aiming to get the dogs to stay in a room when someone knocks at the front door and we made a lot of progress in all areas. Out of the house was a brilliant experience, although it is always a challenge - I feel it did not take long for Alex to get Bentley under control and Bentley responded very well to his techniques to get him walking more calmly. By the end of the session, Bentley was walking by my side on a loose lead - I never believed this could happen, ever! I was absolutely amazed. Alex left us with lots of work to do and it is something that we are committed to do so that we can both feel more confident when people come to visit and when we are walking. We are feeling very positive about the future and looking forward to seeing Alex again on his follow up session.
Another really great session with 2 lovely dogs. I am always confident that we will get results after the first session, but I was pleasantly surprised how well Bentley did both inside and outside the house. I am really looking forward to catching up with them again so we can continue to work with Bentley out on his walks

6th June 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
I have 2 pomerenians and because they are so cute I couldnt resist at all and it felt like they were the one's in control. So i had to find someone who can help me with their behaviour which i honestly thought was impossible
Till Alex showed me the ways to train them and how to let them respect me. Alex was amazing! And its crazy how 3 hours really made a massive difference. Im so happy with how well behaved my puppies are.
Even I am sometimes surprised how well some dogs respond to the training after just 3 hours working with them and their owner. The lesson went really well and by the time we had finished both dogs were no longer jumping or barking, but just chilling together. A big success!!

5th June 2017Angela Young dealt with:
I researched dog training extensively and was attracted to Bark Busters primarily because of their training methods and the ongoing support. Angela helped us understand our dog's personality and his behaviour. She taught us to see the world through his eyes as a dog and ours as humans. Her training methods were kind and did not leave us feeling inadequate. The whole experience taught us to rethink our attitude towards him and realise that letting him behave the way he did was unfair and a burden to him. One of our worries was "over training". We still wanted to be able to cuddle him and let him join us on the sofa etc. and the training has taught us we can. After only a week and a half we have noticed a huge difference. He wants to learn and appears to enjoy it. I can't recommend Angela enough. Although its hard going at times the rewards are amazing. We're working towards having a content and relaxed dog which in turn leads us to be more confident of his behaviour. Win win!
Chorley, Lancashire (Testimonial)
5th June 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was brilliant! We needed as much training as the dogs, but she relaxed us and involved us in the "thinking" of processes and understanding WHY the dogs behaved as they did. The first session saw immediate change in the dogs (although sadly they had another fight) but Gina told us to expect one of the dogs to fight against the changes, so we hope that the continued work will help us solve the issues. We would recommend this company to anybody really wanting to sort out their doggy issues.
Staunton, Gloucestershire (Testimonial)
4th June 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was very friendly and she explained everything to us she also answered all our questions and gave us a lot of help and advise, she knew what the problem was almost as soon as she met my very vocal miniature Schnauzer Lola. We are looking forward to doing the exercises that she has left us to do, to solve the problems we've been having. What's good about Bark Busters, is you have the back up if you're struggling with anything, you can contact the trainer.

3rd June 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony arrived and was very professional. He calmed my anxiety and gave me several tips on behavioural training and what I should look for in the dogs behaviour so I could correct it before any problems occurred.
He was not in a hurry and took his time, explaining things to me several times.
I was very pleased with the session and feel positive that if I follow his advice over time my dog will become more relaxed.
