What dog owners are saying about us
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
Alex was very friendly and helpful with Boris, we have noticed a changs in Boris straight away especially when walking him. We would recommend Bark Busters training to anyone who has a problem with their dog.K.P., rochdale, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)6th May 2019
Alex was great, we now have the tools to start taking command of our dogs and to get them listening. Pete is particularly aggressive and Alex was able to bring them down and I was amazed how they settled within a couple of hours training. I found it very useful and will be enforcing what we have been taught today. Having 2 young dogs who can be aggressive has proven very difficult for us as they bounce off each other, we have been able to get them to listen and I am amazed how simple tools can be so effective. I am looking forward to seeing Alex again for the next steps in our training.C.T., Bacup, Lancashire (Testimonial)12th March 2019
Excellent . Really pleased with the results . I was left with plenty of information to work with . I was very anxious at first due to my dogs behaviour and at the end of the first session I felt more relaxed .M.B., Oldham, Lancashire (Testimonial)5th March 2019
Bobby my 3 year old Cavachon spent a lot of time Barking at every thing that passed our home and would be quite aggressive to strangers coming in the family home or that tried to stroke him. Alex came for a home visit and soon Bobby was at ease with him. Alex explained different situations and trained me how to deal with the problems. After a few days Bobby is a lot quieter and remembers what he's being trained to do. I even bought the food and treats Alex recommended Bobby loves his meal times now. Thanks Alex for your help it was a pleasure to meet you. Sandra Hill RadcliffeS.H., Stoneclough, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)17th July 2018

We booked Alex to help us manage out two chihuahuas. He taught us how to use our tone of voice when correcting thier behaviour. I couldn't belive the change in them in just a few hours into it, they are no longer jumping up, we have been practicing each day nd they have taken to it so well. We would like to thank Alex for all his help and we couldn't recommend him enough!! Xx

What a change in a week, Kessy my Rottweiler would show some agression whenever she saw another dog and we couldnt watch any animal programs on TV without her lunging towards the TV, this week we have walked Kessy with an 100% improvement already in her reaction to other dogs and last night after doing some of the techniques Alex showed us Kessy setttled down and fell asleep whilst we watched an animal program on TV, I am sure we havent cured the issues completely just yet but what a start and all down to Alex giving us the confidence to believe that we can change things for the better.

Despite being sceptical that anything would work we were amazed at the progress made in the initial 3 hour session. The following 48 hours were fantastic following Alex's advice and the change in Millie is instantly noticeable by educating ourselves on how to behave around her. We were we're also impressed with Alex's honesty that further visits were probably not necessary if we followed his training instructions and recognised that he was genuinely concerned for our dogs welfare and not simply in it for the money. Super impressed and a great bloke! Many thanks!
Millie is a lovely little dog, but she thought she was the boss. My training is all about educating the family rather than their dog, as it is more important that they listen to them rather than me. Although we can always make a difference with the initial session, follow up support is generally required. However sometimes I honestly don’t feel follow up support is required. The option to upgrade is still their but fingers crossed they learnt enough to continue their training without me. Keep up the good work!

9th August 2019Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex was amazing with our dogs. They immediately responded to his techniques to the point that it looked like we had called him in for well behaved dogs. Nice easy to use techniques, especially having two we were finding it hard to teach them both at the same time. The behaviour has improved immediately and we are enjoying continuing our homework with them on a daily basis and feel it has greatly increased our bond with them as they are being more attentive to us now waiting for instruction rather than ruling our home.
My training is all about restructuring the family pack so that dogs feel safe, respect and listen better to their owners. Owners can then teach them which behaviours they are happy with and which they aren’t. In turn, this should improve the bond between owner their dog(s).

Day 3 after Alex came and saved us. Poppy is no longer a barker and has learned the pecking order in the house. So far so wonderfully good. Thank you Alex so much, mum couldn’t cope with the barking because of her Alzheimer’s and was ready to re home Poppy. Money well spent.
We generally get results sooner rather than later, but Poppy did really well and no longer barked at animals on the TV by the end of the initial session.

Separation anxiety can make an owner feel like they are a prisoner in their own home. They worry as to what they will return to if they go out, even for just a short while. Plus they worry about their dog being unhappy and stressed! My job is to determine the root cause of any behavioural issue and then give the owners the tools and skills to resolve the issue(s). Some issues can virtually be resolved by the end of the first session, however some can take time. Separation Anxiety is often a slow burner, but if the owners are prepared to put the work in, we’ll get there in the end. I’m looking forward to catching up with these 3 in a few weeks!

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.
I really enjoy my job, but some sessions are more rewarding than others. I went to see a rather concerned owner who felt his dog didn’t listen and was over excitable. The session went really well and they both responded really well to the training. She is no longer an over excitable little girl who does not listen to her Dad. Well doe both

Alex came on time on Thursday morning I found him to be very pleasent and I must say Benji responded very well to the training he talked me through everything step by step he taught me to teach my dog that I'm the boss and I'm so glad I have met Alex as I now know more than I did before he came just simple instructions on how to get Benji to react how I want him to and not how he thinks he should I think it will take a while to get used to doing things differently but at least now I have the knowhow. It was a pleasure to work with Alex such a pleasent person to learn from I would definitely recommend him to other people thank you
Benji is a lovely little dog, but he had devolved a habit of barking at the slightest noise. Both Benji and his owner did really well and by the end of the first session he had virtually stopped barking, and his owner was able to refocus him quickly if he felt the need to bark. I was delighted with how well the session went and I’m looking forward to seeing how things progress.
