Wow, amazing change in my puppy. Should wouldn’t even leave the house for walks before and now after the first session Alex managed to get her walking! Literally feels like a miracle. Now our walks are much more pleasant and I don’t have to carry her around. She’s still a baby so I’m looking forward to more training in the near future.
Alex also taught me how to show my pup who’s in charge and how to get her to listen to me, works perfectly, she no longer stands under my feet when I’m cooking food.
Excellent communication and excellent service, very pleased! Thank you Alex!
Sometimes by the time we have finished working with a dog in the home, the issues that they used to have outside are no longer a problem. This was one of those sessions and I am delighted to hear that her young dog is now confidently walking from her apartment. I’m really looking foward to catching up with them both next week to work on her heel work.

Alex explained everything well and was able to answer all my questions.
I found Alex very friendly and knowledgeable. He trained my husband and myself how to handle Dexter and Dexter learnt some training on the lead. We were very happy with Alex and feel sure that all the issues with Dexter will be sorted out.

Extensive, wide ranging, clear easy to understand and follow.
Working with any puppy or in this case puppies, there is a lot to get through during the initial session and there are often a lot of questions to answer, even when the puppies spend an hour of the first session snoozing. I can't wait to go back and see them all in a few weeks to see how they are doing and to continue with their parents training

I didn’t really no what to expect , and Alex made me feel at ease and explained everything in simple terms. My dog wasn’t naughty he was just very stressed and Alex explained why and how we could destress him. After just one day I saw improvements in my dog, we are a long way from total destress but Alex has given me the confidence and Techniques to correct him.
I really enjoyed the initial session. When I first arrived it was clear that her dog was not aggressive, but just a little stressed with his job of protecting his family and his home. By the end of the first session there was even minimal noise when the window cleaners arrived which amazed even me. Can't wait to see what greeting I receive when I return to see them all in a few weeks.

I have to say that Alex was brilliant with Gizmo, he was also extremely helpful with training tips for myself and my husband keith to continue the training and within the first 90 minutes we saw a remarkable difference in Gizmo
I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex and barkbusters to anyone having problems with their dogs.
The session went better than expected and Gizmo quickly realised that he no longer had to worry about who entered and exited their home. Left both owners with plenty of excercises to practise and I can’t wait to catch up with them in a few weeks.

We found Alex very helpful.The 3 hours flew by, and every minute was very interesting and enlightening. Alex left us with lots to think about, exercises and training to help both us and George. Will be recommending Alex to lots of our doggy friends. Thank you so much Alex.
Great session with George and his parents. Their main issue with George was walking him off lead and ensuring he stayed with them, but before we set off on a walk it is always important to do some work around the home to make sure he was listening to them properly. By the time we set off on a walk George behaved really well. We were all delighted.
8th January 2018Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex has given me so much confidence, as a first time puppy owner I was very nervous and did not have a clue. I feel that with his continued support I will have a well behaved and happy dog
Love working with first time puppy owners to ensure that they train their dog correctly rather than their dog training them. Can’t wait to catch up with them for their second session to see how they are all doing.
9th November 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
Brilliant day; results from first session that I did not expect. Main problem was barking at other dogs but the session goes back to basics and you identify what little habits you have in the home which all have a knock on effect. Even the reassurance of why he was doing it and how my reaction made it worse just made me feel better plus I had the confidence to let him off the lead which I never believed I would. Can’t wait for the next session!
To be the second owners of a dog can sometimes have its problems and the more owners worry about the behavioural issues of their dog, the worse the dog can become. Todays session went really well and I'm not sure who is looking forward to the second session more, me or his owners.

Alex was absolutely brilliant and he has helped us since
I am frequently asked to help people who have had dogs all their lives, and some times the same breed, but have never needed any help or support in the past. Like people all dogs are different and some can certainly be a challenge. This was one of those jobs, but I am delighted to say they were both really pleased with how the session went and i will continue to support them to ensure they can manage the challenging behaviour of their new addition.

The training was excellent. A lot to take in, but Alex was excellent, and explained everything in an easy way to understand. The session was very informative and helpful. We've already seen an improvement in Frank after only a few days of Alex coming. We know we have a lot of work to do, but now feel confident that we can do it.
We would definitely recommend Alex to anybody that needs help with their dog(s)
Frank is a lovely young dog and joined the family after Olive. All went well to start with, but over time the 2 young dogs started falling out which understandably caused worry and concern for their owners. The training session went better than expected and we achieved great results in just 3 hours. I'm delighted to hear that things are continuing to get better for the whole family. Keep up the good work!
