22nd September 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina helped us to understand a dog's nature more than we did, and taught us how to communicate commands more effectively. She recognised that Blarney was very nervous and was confused about her place in the 'Pack'. We look forward to the outside leash training as it was much too hot to start it on that day.
Yes, our English summer was in full swing and roasting so no leadwork which we will do next time. I'm looking forward to seeing them all again soon. I adapted our training to ensure that Blarney was relaxed and happy to participate and will gain confidence from the daily work.
22nd September 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was great. Storm is stubborn as hell and after 8 years had to share her home with another 4 year old staffy Luna. When they first met storm was having none of it and bit Luna and me and my partner thought we may have to live apart or one dog go to their grandparents. Isla sorted them out very quickly and now they even share a bed. Highly recommended.

22nd September 2016Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle was thorough and gave some practical advice which started to work almost immediately. We are all working hard to implement the techniques and Daisy is coming along great!
After only one visit, it's difficult to provide a comprehensive review, but so far it's looking positive.

21st September 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
We very much enjoyed the training session with Linda. She explained everything very clearly and answered any questions we had. We were amazed that Dolly actually walked to heel for the first time while Linda was there. There is still work to do but using the techniques we were shown by Linda it is making things much easier.

20th September 2016Gina Hinsley dealt with:
In a word, 'Brilliant!'
It wasn't the dog that needed training, it was me! After an extended period of illness when the dog was looked after by various friends and family, I had forgotten the correct way to give commands. Gina tuned into my dog and with immediate positive results. I can't thank her enough.
I am now back to being a confident dog owner and we are both much happier for it. Thank you!
20th September 2016Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jackie was excellent. I was very impressed with what she did with Spike. It seems she has fixed the barking problem.
19th September 2016Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Altogether amazing - Gina was very clear regarding what our problem was and how to remedy it. The results were quite remarkable our 14 month over excited slightly manic bull terrier who barked persistently and leapt up over all our visitors calmed down immediately. Gina demonstrated how to show her we were the pack leaders rather than her and she caught on pretty quickly. Since Gina's visit Phenny has barely barked at all, this compared with everytime anyone walked past our house, 20 or more times a day. We are going to have to work hard with the jumping up,it hasnt completely stopped partly because it's quite hard to get others to comply with our pleas to ignore her etc - come to think of it we'll have to train our visitors as when they do ignore her she tries really hard and more or less succeeds.
Gina's training has effected Phenny's general behaviour too, she is much calmer in every way and a delight to have around, so - a happy far more relaxed household. Thank you Gina
19th September 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex was very thorough with his explanations and demonstrations of the techniques involved, the difference in Rosie was almost immediate. The exercises we were left with were easy and very effective. On Alex's 2nd visit we went to our local field where he showed us his recall techniques, again these have been very effective and having practiced them a few times I have been able to let rosie off her lead in the knowledge that I'm not going to loose her (we have lost her 3 times before contacting barkbusters).
Overall Alex is a great bloke who knows his dogs and his techniques, Rosie is now well adjusted and well behaved.
I'm really enjoying working with Rosie, her brother and her owners. They really took on board what we discussed and practised on the first session and Rosie has come on leaps and bounds. I look forward to catching up with them all soon.
18th September 2016Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
So our Shermon was a rescue dog, not that he was badly treated he just couldn't live with his owner anymore as she got ill which left him not getting out and mixing with other dogs, basically he missed out on the puppy association part.So when it came to going for walks as soon as he saw a dog he would rear up on his back legs bark and snarl which was not great for him and not very nice when out for a walk.So my daughter and wife decided to find a trainer and looked online, this is where we found Bark Busters and our local trainer Kevin Mc Donnell. Kevin came out and went through his presentation and the training began, teaching Sherman not to bark at the doorbell or people,Recall,Then after this Kevin took Sherman on the lead to see how he was, with good results he then got us both to walk him round to his car where we were introduced to his dog Bruno.Once introduced we then went for a walk where they played and also practiced long distance recall using the techniques Kevin taught us.As we walked Kevin was saying how Sherman just was confused in what his role was and where he stood, reassuring us that over time doing the techniques we have learnt that he would get better and find his place.. That evening we took Sherman down to Sidmouth and walked passed a few dogs and sat down letting the world go buy only having one bark at a tiny dog.It is early days still but we can see a great change and can't thank Kevin enough for his Training. I can say that Kevin has a very high standard in his ways for training dogs and would recommend him 100% to anyone. THANKS KEVIN from Brian,Lynn and kerry.
18th September 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was a excellent trainer who explained everything to us thoroughly and in a way we could understand. We noticed a change in Margo's behaviour straight away by using the simple and easy techniques.
A little too much barking from this little girl and pulling on lead. It was a little too hot that day to do leadwork, so that's a definite for our next session. She responded really well to our natural, calm methods and is continuing to keep the new behaviour with fun training sessions.
