5th August 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Alfie had a lot of issues, nipping, chewing, urinating and pooping indoors and seemingly aggressive behaviour especially towards other animals and visitors. Jo showed us how to "get control" of the front door and making Alfie pay attention to us. Once we had obedience in the house a lot of his issues resolved themselves. (This process took approx 1 hour!). We are currently working on his "outside" issues and are having good results. Jo was fantastic and offered lots of useful and practical advice. We felt well supported and are looking forward to our third visit to work on socialising Alfie with other dogs. Thanks Jo!!
Alfie is a Border Collie/Fox Terrier Cross stray dog that came from Ireland via the Dogs Trust. He was believed to be approximately 2 years old, but a lot of his behaviour in the home has proved to be that of a much younger adolescent. (It is very difficult to guess a dogs age when they are not microchipped.) In addition to his adolescent issues, he was fearful of visitors, running and barking at them would do the same with the family late at night. He did not have the confidence to "guard" the house and needed to know that the family would do the job. Once boundaries were in place Alfie has relaxed and is becoming an obedient, loving and friendly family dog. It always take time with rescue dogs but given that time they make wonderful companions.

3rd August 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Amber is a rescue dog and very nervous in lots of situations, we also have a cat which is a big problem. Anthony has shown us a way forward with Amber when we didn't have much hope. He has given us lots of exercises to do and I think it will take quite a few sessions but we can now see a light at the end of the tunnel.

3rd August 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
Since the arrival of a new pup, my Tibetan Terrier, Wilson, has become aggressive when he sees other dogs. This has caused obvious stress and concern, hence my contacting Barkbusters. The Strategies provided by Lee have been excellent and now, with consistency on our part, I feel positive about managing Wilson's behaviour.

2nd August 2017Ben Jordan dealt with:
24hrs after Ben's visit and we've calmly walked past a large barking growling dog and a couple of very excited Yorkies. I've genuinely never seen Jack so completely 'not bothered' around another dog (me too!). There's still plenty more to do, but with my confidence boosted and the tasks I've been given to practice, I know we've got this!

2nd August 2017Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle was punctual and very pleasant. She asked what our problems were and addressed each in turn. She left us with homework which we are trying to keep up with and there has been a definite improvement in Toby's behaviour. Sometimes a fresh perspective on problems is a great help in resolving them, and with Estelle's continuing help we are confident of a positive resolution.

2nd August 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Excellent techniques that had immediate results.
Two lovely rescue whippets found, we assume dumped and wandering together. Fully settled into their new home but recall, stealing and leadwork issues are preventing their owners from enjoying them fully. They both responded really well and now the humans in their life will keep the training going so we can progress well at our next meeting!
