What dog owners are saying about us
The initial discussion with Angela was extremely informative. She seem to know Amber’s issues straight away and could give you a range of explanations and techniques to help with her aggression and other problems that she was having. She listened very carefully to our concerns and was extremely personable and approachable. Angela certainly knows her stuff! She made you feel completely at ease and definitely made us understand how Amber was feeling and how to make her feel comfortable. Her report afterwards was also extremely helpful and for the last month, we’ve already seen a significant improvement. We are very much looking forward to her guidance again on our next progress call.N.B., Leyland, Lancashire (Testimonial)13th January 2021
Angela was fantastic in every way ! My dog, Elexii is a large collie cross who I adopted in Dec, she is a rescued Romanian Street dog. Elexii is a lovely friendly dog but due to her history (mostly unknown), was very nervous of pretty much everything and everyone, particularly of getting into or near the car and due to Elexii's size lifting her is not an option! Elexii is also very, very strong and often seems to get frightened of things when out on walks which results in Elexii just freezing wherever she is, usually in the middle of a road ! Elexii will refuse to move and nothing I can do will get her to move. Angela arrived for her first visit with Elexii and was simply amazing ! Angela's professionalism, knowledge, experience and passion for what she does is outstanding and Angela's techniques were all positive and reward based and really worked ! Even during Angela's first visit with us there were changes and improvements in Elexi's behaviour, which included Elexii actually getting into the car on 3 occasions which I honestly thought may never happen, ever ! Angela went above and beyond my expectations and helped me to learn how to best interact with, understand and lead Elexii in a positive manner, which is absolutely key ! I would highly recommend Angela to anyone who is struggling with any aspect of their relationship with their dog, what Angela has taught me is invaluable! I really can't thankyou enough Angela, thankyou for everything Jenny.J.G., Kirkby, Merseyside (Testimonial)7th April 2020
What can I say- we noticed a huge difference in our 3 dogs from day 1 after our visit from Angela. She was so positive throughout our first session explaining why the girls were behaving as they were, but giving us constructive help & ideas to break their bad habits-and ours! We are looking forward to our next visit & showing Angela our progress so far.C.B., BLACKPOOL, Lancashire (Testimonial)17th May 2019
Angela was amazing. Explained everything clearly, took time to make sure I understood. She was kind, caring and effective. I was overwhelmed after just a few minutes my dog stopped pawing at me for attention with just simple techniques. Three days later I am so very happy how Lizzi has taken to me being in charge. Excellent and I can't thank you enough Angela. Keep up the good work and thanks again.T.B., Blackpool, Lancashire (Testimonial)1st March 2019
Well Angela So far so good The dogs have been amazing. Walking the best ever, the jumping and barking stops immediately on command... so well impressed .... today I can honestly say, was the first time I’ve really enjoyed walking with all three of them, it was a pleasure, we saw 2 dogs, again, on the command they stopped. So keep reinforcing this can only get better Thank you so much. From a happy customerS.K., Poulton Le Fylde, Lancashire (Testimonial)16th February 2019

Firstly, thank you Angela. The session was Very welcoming and approachable. Angela was lovely especially when I got very overwhelmed during times in the session. She made me feel relaxed and at ease when setting instructions. Angela always backed her instructions up with theory and very secure subject knowledge. Lots of clear guidance and next steps.

We started training with our schnoodle pup paddy when he was 16weeks old (now 16 months old) he has developed into such a charming, whity, well behaved dog thanks to the help of Angela! I have done various other puppy classes in the past with other dogs and 6 weeks later nailed the sit and stay? Great key elements I agree but this time I wanted us to learn more and bark busters 1:1 training was perfect well worth the extra money! They really get to know your dog, there personality and needs to change behaviours and learn acts of daily living. Thank you to Angela for her continued support, training and expertise virtually and in person with Paddy during the pandemic she had such a positive and calming nature throughout. We are very grateful and will certainly keep her posted on his progress. We will keep working these coming months with everything she has taught us and hopefully it'll become second nature soon enough like the rest. We can't believe how quickly Paddy picks up Angela's corrections and techniques! Super pup Super teacher Super service! Only downside was the pandemic meaning some lessons were virtual for safety.

I am so very pleased that I contacted Bark Busters. I had my first session with Angela last week. She was extremely helpful. She spent 2.5 hours listening to me and talking to me. She was calm and empathetic and did not judge me. She was able to contextualise very quickly the issues with Reggie, who is reactive to other male dogs, and give me logical explanations and good guidance. Angela was very articulate and "spot on" with her analysis. She was honest and open and it has really helped me to see that there are things that I must do so that Reggie does not feel has needs to protect me. I am so grateful. I know it's a long road ahead. I am 100% committed to the training. I love my boy with all my heart and I want to make this work for both of us. Thank you so much Angela and Bark Busters.

6th April 2021Angela Young dealt with:
Excellent session and some invaluable guidance and advice which we have already put in practice - start as you mean to go on. Changed diet, new commands and games and new toys to start with and a longer lead to get walking under control. My only dilemma was the length of the meeting - 3 hours. Loads to take in and not Angela’s issue but I have painful tennis elbow at minute and it’s uncomfortable to get comfy after a couple of hours at table. Looking forward to the follow up meeting though and it’s great that all the notes are sent to us to remind us and saved us making notes on the evening. Highly recommended

Angela was brilliant explained exactly what was happening with our dog and the reasons behind it and how to deal with the issues we were having. Gave us the confidence to put into practice her training methods and we have seen a marked improvement in Bob’s behaviour over the last week.

We were very impressed with Angela’s assessment and subsequent training recommendations for Bella. She understood the situation perfectly suggesting changes to diet and types of rewards. So far we are having success with the techniques and Bella’s confidence has improved greatly.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. I'm delighted that you are finding the techniques helpful and that Bella's confidence is improving. Well done! Kind regards, Angela
