26th July 2016Angela Young dealt with:
We met Angela last year after trying various different trainers. She kindly visited us and our pooch, and has help support us using various techniques and skills. We fully appreciate and also committed to using all the guidance and made it fun for our boxer. We both feel more confident walking past other large dogs, and have formed great leadership skills so that our boy knows who is boss. We are continuing to use and put all in place all the training Angela has taught us, and we both feel without her we would be in the same position and not enjoying our walks. We highly recommend Bark Busters, they come out whenever they are needed and you have Angela's full support.
It's been such a pleasure to work with Lori, Jules and their gorgeous boy Diesel. He is certainly a unique young man, who is a big softie and the most adorable boy with a beautiful heart. He fits perfectly with his wonderful family. They are fantastic owners who have worked really hard to help Diesel be a relaxed, happy and focused boy. It's been lovely to see Diesel's progress and to see his family's confidence grow in certain situations as they have learned and practiced some new techniques to keep Diesel nice and calm. I have loved working with you all, thank you for inviting me into your home to help you. Over the past 12 months I have made three lovely new friends. Please keep in touch and keep up the great work! xx
24th July 2016Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Thank God for Gina! Having trained me how to talk dog has changed our life at home, I had been thinking about getting a trainer in for years (Emma is now 8) and am so glad we have now. I am now in charge which has been surreal and Emma is calmer, much more chilled and so much more gentle. Of course, she is still trying to test her boundaries but I now know how to deal with these situations quickly and effectively. So if you're thinking about getting a trainer in but aren't sure, I'd say don't hesitate, the training is set to your dogs requirements and you'll see a change in the first visit...for me it was a shock and I felt bad for Emma when I realised I should have been more of a leader for her a long time ago. Do this for your pup, get the family involved too, my parents are enjoying her more now that she isn't playing them up also. Book the training today, you won't regret it!
Thanks for your feedback. Once you can communicate to your dog in a way that they understand, you have a happier less confused dog. So glad that you're now able to enjoy Emma.
24th July 2016Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was absolutely brilliant, he made it all so simple to understand. My friend has an aggressive dog and I will definitely be recommending Kevin to help!
24th July 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
I highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone in need of dog training! We had a 3-4 hour sessions with Anthony, who came to assist our 2 mixed breed rescue dogs with various things such as pulling on the lead, aggression towards other dogs on walks, general hyperactivity, and toileting. The session with Anthony was so incredibly informative, he started off explaining the psychology behind a dog's behaviour and how to change / correct it. We learnt so much from him! We then put things into practice and from that day that he came to our home, our dogs have been so well behaved. It is now such a pleasure to walk our dogs and not be pulled on the lead or stress about encountering other dogs and it has only been 4 weeks since we had our initial session! I am so impressed with the training and with the knowledge that Anthony passed on to us! He is such a nice person and a brilliant trainer, and he has honestly changed ours and our dogs lives. Thank you so much Anthony!
23rd July 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
When Graham walked into my house, I was a wreck. I had been crying for an entire week with no sleep as my little innocent puppy was peeing all over my White House and not listening to a single word I said. I was completely overwhelmed and scared and I was expecting a cruel session but the second Graham walked in, he made me calm and my dog loved him at first sight. He was so patient with me explaining how the mind of a dog works and he answered my endless boring questions with extreme knowledge. What he got my dog to do was unbelievable. SIt. Stay. Lie down and the best part is that the puppy enjoyed the entire session. Graham is so knowledgable about dogs and the psychology behind their actions and once explained, made everything so much easier. I was feeding my poor dog all the wrong things, rice, porridge, cheese and he explained how a raw meat diet is optimal for canines and now, 2 weeks later, my dog is thriving on her new diet. He also left me very important notes about all aspects of training which I frequently look back on. I look forward to seeing Graham again and seeing what else we can achieve. Thank you Bark Busters!
22nd July 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony was fantastic. Everything he taught us he explained thoroughly and clearly. It was effective and easy to learn. We have a 3 month old Border Collie that was more than a little over excited to be in his new home and didn't display it in the best ways. Although we still have a long way to go, the improvement after just one session was amazing. Our puppy is starting to give us happiness rather than headaches. Thank you so much Anthony, looking forward to working with you more in future.
22nd July 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
The information and training advice given was very valuable and also reassuring. I am confident that if we stick to the "programme" Toby will turn out the way we intend him and he will live a healthy happy life.
Toby is just 15 weeks old and so adorable I threatened to kidnap him! His owners just needed some help on general puppy management and of course the usual play biting and chewing! I've left them with some homework and they will let me know if they get stuck on anything and I'll visit again when they are ready to move on.
21st July 2016Lee Hardy dealt with:

can't recommend highly enough.
21st July 2016Neil Price dealt with:
Neil was very patient and gave lots of advice on managing Humphrey's behavior - it seems to be working though will take time to change some of the habits.
21st July 2016Angela Young dealt with:
Best money I've ever spent, before Angela came I thought we were on a losing battle, not like me to give up on anything, Enzo wasn't my dog and I originally didn't want to be involved, but he belongs to my son and Enzo was still part of our family. Angela has changed my whole way of thinking, the difference in Enzo on her first 4 hour session has been amazing. It's like having a different dog, Angela listened to all what we said, then set the standards and I think particularly for me we have
challenged ourselves to train Enzo instead of him training us. With Angela's support, it's peace of mind knowing we chose to go for gold, simply just knowing you are always there if we need you just makes us a winning team :). Thank you Angela, Bark Busters certainly struck gold with you.
Thanks you so much Josey, for such kind words and for asking me to help you with Enzo. He is a gorgeous, intelligent young boy and I'm sure you're all going to do brilliantly with his training. I'm so pleased that he is already making good progress and you can see improvements. It's lovely to have your commitment to Enzo's training and I'm delighted to be working with you all. Looking forward to our next lesson and seeing how he's coming along. Keep up the great work! Angela x
