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!
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.

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.

28th November 2019Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex was a pleasure to have with us for our first training session with our dog, Buddy. Alex calmly explained the help he thought Buddy needed and also explained that it was myself who needed a little training too. Buddy followed all the advice and training techniques demonstrated by Alex and responded well when we tried them. Buddy is so much calmer and within a few days started showing significant improvement. There are still things I myself need to implement more on a daily basis as it is unfair to Buddy not to maintain such good training advice and technique.

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.

Alex is fantastic my Dogs are very chatty when anyone knocks on the door and from just having our first training session they have shown a great improvement. I have learnt to be more of a leader with them rather than a soft mum. Telling Alex all the issues I have with them, he showed me how to deal with them and my dogs reacted to his command straight away almost making me out to be a liar like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths......Jasper and Millie have picked up very quickly how to behave and I just need to implement this every day with them training myself more to be in control rather than them. I'm looking forward to our next training lesson and hoping to show Alex well behaved dogs. I highly recommend Bark Busters, they are so helpful and always there to give advice anytime.
Great session today! Both dogs responded really well to the training techniques used. I can’t wait to catch up with them all in a few weeks to see how they are both doing!

25th October 2019Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex taught us simple techniques to reorient the relationship between us and our 2-year old dog. The exercises Alex showed us could be done quickly and are easy to assimilate into our busy lives. He was patient teaching us how to handle our dog and our dog responded well very quickly. The key will now be employing what Alex taught us consistently, but Alex provided us with a great foundation.

Alex was really friendly and we made good progress with Reggie (6month old cockapoo boy) within the first hour. By the end of the session, I had several techniques to keep him in check and by the end of the same day, I'd all but managed to stop Reggie jumping up to me. This is an ongoing process, of course, but for one day I'm very pleased. We also did some lead work and this morning Reggie walked for about 20-25 minutes through central Manchester consistently at heel. I thoroughly recommend Alex to anyone needing some help with their dogs.
I love working with first time puppy owners. Some puppies are naturally easier to train than others, but all benefit from simple ground rules. Reggie was already doing really well, but by the time we finished he was walking really well to heel. Can’t wait to catch up with Reggie and his owner in a few weeks.
