Jacquie was extremely pleasant , friendly and efficient. I immediately felt she had a lot of knowledge to offer about Betty's problems. Crucially I also felt she listened carefully to what I was saying. She broke down managing Betty's behaviour into small goals. Although it is less than a week ago I feel there has been a significant improvement in Betty's behaviour .

Well time flies by so quickly and we can't believe it's been over a month already since we had our training session with Jacquie, who we have to say was so friendly and easy to talk to and taught us so much in those 3hrs that flew by so quickly. our Molly is a 2yr old Staffie Cross (we think with a high jumping Whippet! Lol) Molly was leaping, mouthing, pulling and jumping on everyone who came near us!
Jacquie taught her (kindly) that she was not in charge and taught us not to feel sorry for her but to understand that her past was indeed in the past (mostly caged for 2yrs 24/7 and starved hence the RSPCA rescue, she didn't even know how to play Ball bless her) and this was her future which meant we were in charge and she would learn to respect us...
So weeks later she is starting to get her head round what we need from her,
she doesn't leap anymore
She occasionally jumps up, through excitement, but a quick reminder and she's down
She sits in her bed and waits to be invited to say hello to visitors (occasionally forgetting herself, but a quick reminder puts her back in bed.
Walking to heel is still ongoing and can be quite good until she sees a bird, butterfly, bee, basically anything that moves!! But we're not giving up on the training as our hands are no longer sore from her previous pulling, we just think this little girl has special needs and takes a bit longer to register what we're wanting her to do.
Recall is good as we blow the whistle she relates to her food (another training aid suggested by Jacquie, yaay)
My frail 88 yr old Mum came over for a visit again this week, and for the first time I didn't have to put Molly on lead around the house and Mum was able to sit peacefully in the chair, an odd reminder from Mum to not come up and Molly walked away, plus getting up to walk around Molly didn't jump up one her.
Molly still has her moments of madness but these are getting less over the weeks of training and as long as we stay consistent we're pretty sure she will continue to improve.
All training given was kind and caring, no harsh methods used, so we're very pleased with the results so far.
All in all we can't thank Jacquie enough for her help, we believe we have the makings of a fantastic little girl, rescue dogs can be the best pets with the right trainers. Thanks again Bark Busters/Jacquie
Another delightful staffie. They are such great dogs to train, & the owners are pretty good to!
Rules, boundaries & a decent diet go a long way to helping owners have a calmer & obedient dog.
Molly had a tough start to life, but now she has a loving home & owners.

Clear and Helpful advice giving explanations to why my monsters behave the way they do. Realistic training guide/plan to hopefully becoming happier, healthier and calmer dogs. With Sane owners! Looking forward to a happier and quieter future. We have some way to go but with Jacquie's help it is looking more positive. Many thanks
Not really monsters! But a very noisy jack Russell & a Husky/ GSD pup who has picked up some bad habits from her pack mate. Very committed owner who wants her dogs to be a little happier with Bark Busters help!

We found Jacquie really understood the problems we were experiencing with Ellie. She gave some excellent advice as to where we were going wrong, mainly treating Ellie as a human and not a dog! In the space of a week we have really noticed the change in our dog and she seems much happier now she is learning the boundaries.

Jackie was amazing...it's early days as less than a week since the training and 2 of my 4 dogs were completely out if control, I was at the end of my tether! I don't think they'll ever be perfect role models but the difference so far is phenomenal. thank you

I have a 16 month old Poochon called Bailey and was stressing the family with constant barking out of the window all day long, we were constantly shouting at him with no response. He had separation issues with myself and I felt constantly tied to him. I called Bark Busters and was visited by Jacquie OMG she's amazing i have a new dog and people can't believe the difference after just one visit, still ongoing with a couple of trivial problems but amazing !!! thank you so much Jacquie and would highly recommend you xxxx
