What dog owners are saying about us
Alex is very professional in his delivery in all aspects of this excellent service. He has given me the tools and the confidence with my first puppy to be in total control of my dog. This is a 5 star experience and miles better than the books or friends and family hearsay techniques on how to train your dog. I cant recommend this guy enough! So many peole comment on how well behaved Buster is for a puppy! Thanks a million Alex!D.N., Poynton, Cheshire (Testimonial)28th February 2020
Alex is a down to earth guy with no pretentious qualities (many dog trainers have a lot!) It was easy to get on board with his training techniques and they do appear to be working. So far we're very pleased.S.F., Oldham, Lancashire (Testimonial)1st December 2019
Alex was great. Within a couple of hours Zulu was much calmer and listening to us and responding. We have continued with the techniques taught to us and Zulu is listening - we know it’s an ongoing training need so look forward to our next training session with Alex.J.M., Bury, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)26th November 2019
All I can say is thank you Alex, you are a god send. Me and my girlfriend haven’t left our house in over 6 months, due to our dog with severe separation anxiety, and we were having issues with her giddiness and jumping up at people and being overly clingy with us. He was very friendly, very professional and we are looking forward to our future sessions. We purchased the years package and it was money definitely well spent. Thank you so muchJ.B., Blackley, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)27th July 2019
I am so glad that I contacted Alex Fraser. His professional manner and insight into my problems was remarkable and put my mind at rest. Alex knew exactly where I was coming from. He was friendly, open, very knowledgeable and fully able to understand and address my dog's issues - and she was very responsive to him. Most importantly, he gave me the tools and reassurance necessary to make further progress with my dog's training. It is also nice to know that ongoing support is available should I need it. I would not hesitate to recommend Bark Busters to any dog owner - and to Alex in particular.K.M., Heald green, Cheshire (Testimonial)12th July 2019

Really enjoyed the session, made me feel so much more positive without situation, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My dogs are already following some instructions that I've implemented on Alex instructions. Feeling really positive.

Alex was very supportive and gave us clear instructions with what to do which we are using and it's helping. We are going to have a follow up lesson with in 2-3 weeks and will also arrange a walk with his 2 dogs to help with the control of our dog with other dogs. Weare very pleased with all the help we have been given, we would recommend Alex to anyone we know to be having problems.
Great session. It was really nice to be able to work with customers in their homes again (social distancing of course) but having the option of doing some virtual session and revisits will great help moving forward.
Although the session went really well follow up support is generally needed so that we can build on their training. It also gives customers the option to bring their dog to my home and we can do a walk with my 2. Some controlled exposure to dogs they don’t know can be really beneficial.
Cant wait to catch up in a few weeks.

We had a remote session with Alex (due to the coronavirus pandemic) and managed to successfully start work on a lot more than I expected. He showed us some helpful videos to understand more about why Leo thinks and acts as he does and how the training techniques he taught us can help him worry less and find his rightful position in the family. Within the first session I was amazed to see how Leo responded to the training and after just a week have already seen an improvement. We will definitely continue to work with the training Alex showed us and can't wait to meet in person and practise lead work and consolidate what we've already done.
The remote sessions are working really well and we are able to do far more than I first envisaged. Obviously I’m looking forward to meeting them face to face once I am allowed to visit customers in their homes, but moving forward the remote sessions will be good for a quick catch up and will allow customers to show me how well they are doing .

We completed our first training lesson with Alex. Alex was really good. He did say it would take some time and patience. If we worked at it each day Arlo would start to be more calm and would eventually be able to cope at being left on his own and people coming in the house. He showed us some exercises he wanted us to do and left us with a training instruction sheet to follow. He explained to us the reason why we were doing these particular exercises. We actually felt at the end of the lesson more confident and not on our own. We love the fact that Alex would be in touch with us on A regular basis and with us every step of the way. We would recommend Alex to anyone who is having issues with their dog.

We really enjoyed Hugo’s first training session with Alex. Just a few simple tips have made a huge difference in Hugo’s behaviour already! They are things we would never have thought of (e.g. a different correction sound) Also, we didn’t realise Hugo may not be getting quite enough sleep, so have now started a sleep diary. We’ve been left with clear actions and things to work on. So far so good; we’re really looking forward to our next visit!

I’ve had a few sessions Buster and his owner and he really is a great young dog who is eager to please. Some puppies can be a real challenge, but Buster has been a dream to work with and is now doing really well both in the home and out on walks.

Alex was a friendly guy who made himself known to Murphy without any issues, he was straight into the training as Murphy has a habit of jumping up and grabbing hands wanting to play. He wanted to see how Murphy interacted with us and was surprised how mouthy he was but then was amazed how quick he learned the techniques. He addressed the issues we were having and helped with the techniques we needed which were very straight forward, we noticed an instant change in Murphy, he has gone from a boisterous grabby, jumpy dog to a more friendly softer dog who now understands downtime.
Murphy is a great German Shepherd, but he was a bit of a bully to his human Mum and sometimes human Dad. He ruled the roost. German Shepherds are super intelligent and once we got Murphy listening he exceeded my expectations with how well he did. I’ve been in touch with his parents following the session and his bullying behaviour has stopped. I’m so pleased!

I found Alex (Bark Busters) through the internet. I put feelers out to several people but Alex was the first one back to me. We had an indepth convo at the telephone where Alex quickly assessed that Chester had taken over as the alpha male in our home; so we made an appointment for a visit here at home. Alex was timely. We spent a pleasant amusing three hours training ME (and Chester) on who was the real alpha. We all three got on splendidly and progress is being made albeit slowly. The random barking is abating and Chester's 'me first' mindset has seen a sea change thanks to Alex's friendly informative training. Its worth mentioning that I didn't feel judged for my lack of dog skills (Chester being our first dog) or patronised. I would highly recommend Alex as a behaviourist in your home should you struggle with hierarchy problems.
