What dog owners are saying about us
I was absolutely amazed and after the first week, it was if Manu had been given a magic pill!. Our walks are now so relaxing and stress free, he's a calmer dog and understands the commands we are giving him. Looking forward to the next phase.V.O., nottingham, Nottinghamshire (Testimonial)29th May 2018
My wife and I found Anthony very knowledgeable and helpful at our first session. He gave us useful advice and suggestions on how we could approach the various issues we have with Coco. Anthony is patient and a good listener. He explained in clear details the actions we need to take, and followed that up with encouraging us to practice his recommendations. He isn't pushy at all, which is reassuring given our relative inexperience with dog training and behavioural matters. We feel hopeful that, with Anthony's continued guidance, we will be able to bring about the changes we want with Coco.A.A., Burton Joyce, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire (Testimonial)9th May 2018
A great insight into the world of how a dogs mind works. Really enjoyed the first lesson and look forward to the next. Can tell Anthony really knows his stuff.E.G., Nottingham, Nottinghamshire (Testimonial)17th June 2017
Anthony was fantastic. Everything he taught us he explained thoroughly and clearly. It was effective and easy to learn. We have a 3 month old Border Collie that was more than a little over excited to be in his new home and didn't display it in the best ways. Although we still have a long way to go, the improvement after just one session was amazing. Our puppy is starting to give us happiness rather than headaches. Thank you so much Anthony, looking forward to working with you more in future.L.F., Lincoln, Lincolnshire (Testimonial)22nd July 2016
We called in Anthony to help with our two dogs Monty (a gsd cross) and Bella (a staffie cross) because they both had very different issues that needed dealing with and I think we'd just got a bit tired and overwhelmed. Anothony was so helpful and supportive during our first training session that after it ended I was left feeling alot more confident and secure in my abilities as a leader! Its only been a week since our first session but already the change in both of them is unbelievable. Once again our walks are lovely and calm and their general behaviour within the household is much improved. We're very excited to carry on with our (because we needed it as much as they did!) training to see what we can achieve.B.B., Nottingham, Nottinghamshire (Testimonial)17th March 2016

We simply loved it. Being a deaf dog, Zeus has his own way of learning. We found difficult to communicate with him as he did not get "no"s. We received many pieces of advice that helped us to communicate with Zeus, to understand what behaviour to have with him, and to teach him what he can and cannot do. Anthony was patient, answered all our question and reassured us on all doubts as we are first time owners and we may get too apprehensive. Immediately, after Anthony left us, we could see the difference. Being consistent with our training allowed us to be able to manage Zeus easier and he's now becoming an angel! We will always be grateful with Barkbuster for the help they gave us!

Found this first session very interesting on how to help Molly learn how to cope with certain things. She’s not a very confident dog but Anthony dealt with her fear of him brilliantly to get her on her way. We just need to train everyone that comes round to be the same and she will hopefully make a lot of progress in not seeing people as a threat. Anthony gave us lots of information on how to train Molly so we completely understand what we need to do. Baby steps with her but I have confidence in Anthony’s experience and training

My first session with Anthony shocked me, I didn't know what to expect but the outcome during the sessions with both my dogs amazed me. He explained to me the reasons why my dogs act the way they do which helped me understand the benefits of the training. I didn't expect to see any results so soon because my dogs are very stubborn but even during the session both of them made improvements and I was speechless. Anthony kept a high level of professionalism even during note taking breaks which I haven't even seen in big organisations! Five stars is an insult, I would give ALOT higher. Deffinatly recommend him to anyone.

12th September 2018David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Excellent! Very impressed. It's the first weekend that as a family we have been able to get up & walk into different rooms without Coco spinning around & barking. After already having two different trainers to the house we can not believe the difference in her as we got told there was nothing can be done to stop the barking & basically we had to put up with it. Which as you can imagine living with constant barking was a nightmare. Although it's been less than a week since meeting & working with David I feel there has already been a significant change in all the dogs behaviour. Blue, Levi & Tinkerbell seem more calmer & not jumping up as much. Thank you David for your advice & support. Michelle

A quite amazing session. Great steps forward in a really short period: improvements that were quick, easy to achieve and have (so far) stuck. We really felt (our) training went very well, and both dogs picked up on their new regime.
