What our Clients are saying about us
This was the first training session and it was remarkable. Every aspect of the time spent was so well paced. Given that I was fairly anxious, not knowing what to expect, the initial time taken to talk and go through all of the preliminaries, soon eased that anxiety. I am totally in awe of the methods used by Aaron and cannot speak highly enough of them and of him as a trainer. His diligence, timing, care, common sense and sensitivity just shone through. Nothing was rushed but we still were able to do quite a lot and already Elsa has changed/improved on aspects of her behaviour. She is also a more relaxed dog and I am an improved handler.J.C., Macclesfield, Cheshire25th August 2017
Having a 2 year old Labradoodle girl, Nellie, who is a real challenge to train because she is hyperactive, plus a new member of the family, a large Romanian rescue boy, Jonno, I eventually had to reach the conclusion that my training issues were going in two different directions - not an easy situation. Although I have had dogs all my life, I was not going to end up with well behaved pets who listened to me and were a joy to have around, without substantial amounts of expert intervention. I did quite a bit of trawling around on the web; some trainers were not only very expensive but required residential time, which I could not commit to. I had already heard of Bark Busters and after having a comprehensive discussion with Amanda, my first port of call, I also had another talk with the trainer I was to be allocated to, Aaron. Those two chats gave me the belief that I could in fact achieve all that I wanted for my dogs to become nice companions. Put it down to my great age, but even having paid over my money for a year’s training support for my dogs, I still had a degree of cynicism. However the initial longer fact-gathering session with Aaron went extremely well and the most important thing I gained from that was the optimism that together we could mould my two dogs to be how they should be as family pets. We explored the various areas I needed to address, and with Aaron’s help and his very laid back but confident, professional approach, I am now beginning to see light at the end of the canine tunnel. There is certainly no quick fix to training; it is hard ongoing work, which can be very frustrating at times, but I now have the prospect of getting what I want ultimately for both dogs, and me, with Aaron’s skilled guidance. Once one takes on any dog as part of one’s family circle, the commitment has to be total; part of that means getting the fullest enjoyment from them. It has to take however long it takes to end up with a nicely trained duo, so I’m in it for the long haul – hurrah for Aaron. A lovely young man who is becoming a friend as well as our essential trainer. What I can fully recommend about using a good trainer like Aaron, is that they are fully involved whilst able to retain a certain emotional detachment, when the owner’s angst is building and getting frustrated which is totally counter-productive. Thank you Aaron for saving my sanity and for all the further satisfaction still to come.D.B., King Sterndale, Derbyshire13th August 2017
One session and this is so worth the money HONESTLY!!! As I said we have just had one session with Aaron and he has been amazing! We rescued a 10 month old German shepherd and had problems with him pulling on the lead (though well behaved off) and barking and jumping up at visitors. At 10 months he is already large and being a long haired black German shepherd he was intimidating to others to say the least, but showed no aggression at all! We were getting so frustrated as everyone was judging him by this but knew we had a very loving, non aggressive dog. Aaron is unbelievable!!! So easy to get on with and stopped Denbay doing all of the above in one session! Just wow!!!! Family and friends can now come to our house and see the gorgeous boy for who he is and they can't believe the transformation! We know it's an ongoing exercise, as we have problems with recall too but he taught us about ourselves and how we were not communicating with our dog and he showed us how! Truly was amazing! We can't wait to see the on going improvement and could not recommend Aaron enough!!! I would recommend him to anyone in fact I have been doing so since he came! We want a happy, contented dog, especially given his poor start in life and Aaron is teaching us how to do just that. Training classes would never have resolved these problems but Aaron truly can, as his training is in your home and you really will see the results by Aaron in the first session... move over Caesar Milan!!!!T.T., Middleton, Greater Manchester20th October 2016

Aaron was brilliant and gave us some really valuable insights into a dogs mind. We now understand a lot more about Maggies nervousness and what she is attempting to do. I will be emailing Aaron tomorrow to report that we have seen real improvements in her behaviour,. We have tried to put as many of the training hints into practice as we can. Both my husband and I feel so much more confident. We are also committed to making sure that some situations are always going to be stressful and that we must ensure that either we take Maggie out of the situation altogether or try and manage the stress she is under with more understanding.

We found Aaron to be a very professional trainer and communicator. His manner, calmness and attitude towards our dogs was great from the start and he soon had them in control and training mode which was great to see. We have seen a change in the dogs with the training techniques passed to us and when given from us has worked with the dogs on most occasions. We do need more training and guidance from Aaron to continue in what we now know to be separation anxiety when we leave or are away from the home and other areas particularly recall when out walking.

Training with Aaron has been very helpful and we are progressing with Ben, our young French Bulldog.

Aaron gave excellent advice in terms of helping Pongo with his seperation anxiety. We practiced daily and have seen massive improvement. Before Aaron helped Pongo barked and howled from me going out continuoisly until my return. Now it takes him 5 minute to settle and then he sleeps - i observe on a camera and am reassured he is happy and content.
Cannot thank you enough x
It is an absolute pleasure. Happy I could help!

Aaron was excellent so calm and very knowledgeable. He helped us so much with our first lesson, his training methods are simple but very effective, we look forward to our next lesson.
8th February 2018Aaron Noble dealt with:
Aaron explained everything very well and we felt from the first 5 minutes that we had made the right decision. Nothing was too difficult and we would recommend Bark Busters.
The training is coming along and we (myself and wife) need to be consistent with it.
10th January 2018Aaron Noble dealt with:
I had my first session with Aaron today and it went better than I ever expected. My Great Dane is very fearful of strangers and I have not been able to have visitors to my house in over a year. Before he arrived I felt sick with nerves but by the end of our session I felt like he’d given me my confidence back.
I even managed to get a photo of her relaxed in the chair right next to him while he was filling in forms to prove to all the sceptics that I wasn’t wasting my money after all! I was told by friends and family it would be a waste of time and money but I now feel like I have the tools to move forward and deal with the problems we’ve been facing. Having a stranger sit in my house with my dog relaxed and calm felt like an impossibility this morning, but we made it happen and I couldn’t be happier with the service and the easy manner in which Aaron explained everything.

Fantastic first meeting with Aaron who was so calm and kind to our very timid 9mth old Bedlington Terrier that we have just got.
We can’t thank Aaron enough for the time he spent with her and the encouragement he gave us. We can’t wait until our next meeting for more great hints and sound advice.

Aaron was on time, polite and very knowledgeable. He gave me sound advise backed up with example of how to get the most from the training. Practicing the lead training daily should see the pulling problem resolved as we are a week in and we are getting better already.

Aaron is really good, he helped us with Doug and we can already see the change in him after only a week. Doug is much calmer and can finally come into the living room with us without chasing up and down the stairs, stealing shoes and barking at the TV!
