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.

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.

Training was very clear and we understand now what we was doing wrong. It’s early days at the moment but so far Frank is starting to learn and the aggression he was showing when being told off has decreased. There is still along way to go with the training but we are very happy so far and wished we had done this from the beginning! It’s good have that option to call Anthony if we need him again. Thanks again :)

Anthony was lovely and really gave me a lot of different ways off dealing with Dylan's behaviour it is definitely a long winding road with Dylan.

Nobby is a 10 month old Boxer who is very energetic and friendly. Anthony came to help us with Nobby’s destructive tendencies when left home alone and his over enthusiastic greeting of visitors to our home.
Anthony spent more than 3 hours with us, giving us some great training techniques to help us all. We have been able to take back the control and decision making in our home. This meant that our Christmas Day was calm and amazing for all our visiting family. Everyone was impressed with how beautifully behaved Nobby was all day long. We we’re all worried that he may jump all over everyone and demand attention but thanks to Anthony’s training programme, we all had a fantastic day!! My mum took the contact information for a friend who has a naughty dog.
Thank you, Anthony!!

Anthony was made the session so clear and understandable - and made everything make sense even though there was a lot to take on board. He explained well and interspersed each session with an actual practice session with Hamish. He put our minds at rest that Hamish can be trained out of his ‘dog reaction’ Behaviour and showed us all the every day day ways in which we can ensure we show passive leadership with him, which we thought we had, but obviously hadn’t!!!
