David and Anthony Swindells dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Separation Anxiety Toileting

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.

We were very happy with the training session we had with Anthony Swindells last week. It was much better than we expected, and we were completely amazed at the immediate change in behaviour in our two dogs. Anthony was very clear in giving us directions and explaining why we were doing the various exercises. There was a lot of information to take in and remember from the session, but Anthony wrote down great notes for us after the session and sent us the information sheets within a few days which were also very helpful. Overall, we were very pleased with the training and would definitely recommend Bark Busters.

David and Anthony Swindells dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise

We adopted Lucy just over a year ago. We had problems with walking(pulling) and seeing other dogs (barking at them) and called in another dog trainer who gave us some techniques which made the situation better but still not ideal. Recently we had issues with Lucy barking almost constantly at visitors so we contacted Barkbusters and Anthony. Anthony spent three hours with us and step by step trained us to help Lucy deal with the visitor aspect. Very quickly we could see Lucy respond to this training. Anthony was very thorough in his delivery and answered all our questions. He made recommendations and arranged follow up contact. The biggest impact so far in this short time has been through us adopting the passive leadership role and Lucy is so much calmer on walks already. As yet we have not had any visitors but we are doing our homework ( with a recording of the doorbell!) and feel much more confident in handling the situation. We very much look forward to working with Anthony in the future and seeing Lucy progress even further.

Our trainer Anthony was professional , informative and patient. He listened to the problems we felt were evident with our dog Evie and worked with us in formulating a training plan with goals to work towards .He allowed us to practise strict passive leadership , attentive walking and sitting in an effort to build Evie's cofidence as well as ours. He gave us constructve advice and ensured we understood all the training procedures before , during and after practise. Anthony also left us with contact email details and reassurance that we could contact him for further advice and we would organise further training when our dog was recovered from planned surgery, Very happy with all aspects of Barkbuster training delivered by a well informed , person and pet centered trainer. Many thanks.

David and Anthony Swindells dealt with: Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

First session was very good and gave me a great deal of encouragement. Bertie is a lovely dog but has a number of issues that both he and I need help with. I feel much encouraged that this will be achieved. Jumping up has already diminished and I look forward to the next session. Hyperactivity indoors has virtually ceased. Pulling when out for walks is slightly improved but needs quite a lot of attention, especially when on way back home. Thank you Anthony from both of us and we are looking g forward to next session.

Anthony was very proffesional throughout, we were fully reassured that our problems could be sorted and very quickly had assessed our dogs and started work. He ran through what and how we were to make a start and made sure we understood and were happy to commence, I will admit the training sounded a bit simple and I did think thats not going to work on our dog, but within a couple minutes it was having a positive effect. We were set up with what we had to work on to start with and this was followed up very quickly with it all in an email.

We were able to contact Anthony anytime should we need to for advice or assistance should things not be working, but we did what he told us and we have made so much progress i am amazed.

I cannot recall how much money i have wasted on other training courses, gadgets and aids with no effect, Anthonys methods work and we look forward to working with him further with our dogs. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

I was very happy with my first session of training. Anthony was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very good at explaining and teaching and made me realise things about Robbie which I would never have thought of before.

I am excited to continue the training by following the training plan Anthony gave us, Robbie has already made great improvements after just one session and we are hopeful for the future.
