Toby seems to be getting there, sure we have a way to go but he is going in the right direction! He's been on his new diet & I think that helped, plus he loves it!
We also took him back to the breeder last week, who complimented us on his behaviour (well done Jacquie), he said he looked brilliant & decided he hadn't charged us enough for him!!
Thank you so much for all your advice & support & letting us begin to enjoy Toby 7 the lovely dog we know we will have.
Lovely chocolate lab, who is only 10 months old. I always find that these labs mature quite slowly so training is always a little slower.But with the right rules & boundaries he will continue to respond & with the owners consistency, he's going to be a super dog in no time at all.

Amazing! The dog's behaviour improved instantly and has continued all day. He is a completely different dog. I'm totally lost for words.
Lovely bcxgsd who needed a few boundaries. Barking at every thing.
Work in progress with a little training every day will see this sorted & most importantly a less stressed dog!

When we approached Bark Busters, we were desperate frankly. Our dog Molly is a lovely dog but she was completely hyper. She jumped up at everyone, mouthed continually. & was very difficult to control. We had taken her to puppy training as soon as we could after we got her but she never seemed to calm down. Jacquie taught us how to control our dog in a way that Molly understood & advised us to look at her diet. After one session, we had a different dog & got our lives back. We can now have friends round & most importantly our grandchildren. Molly seems happier & more content. Revolutionary & life changing. well worth every penny!
Molly is a lovely labxgsd. When I arrived she was all over me, mouthing my clothes, arms, jumping. She did eventually calm down but it took some time. This is very common & I was not surprised by her behaviour, & after 2 weeks she was so calm, staying in her bed when I arrived & waiting until I wanted to say hello!
These clients can now get on with their lives & have people round!

Jacquie was incredibly understanding and allowed me to tell her fully (without interruption)my problems with my dogs.The first session was very informative and easy to grasp the principles,my dogs became much calmer.The second session was a revelation,Jacquie dealt with dog on dog aggression at the end of the session I could have wept with joy.Jacquie has not only trained my dogs she has also trained me to be the person my dogs think I am and I am eternally gratefull to her,thankyou so much.
7th March 2014Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Nala has changed dramatically after I have followed all of the advise given by Jacquie. She is a completely different dog in the best way possible! In two weeks we had eradicated her anxiety seperation which was a constant stress for me (and Nala). We are both much happier now and cant wait to continue training and learning about heel walking! THANK YOU JACQUIE

Jacqui is always very personable and knowledgeable with answers, thinking outside the box for solutions/ ideas. She was quick to suss out Mojito's personality and how best to get us to stop being passively lead.
3rd October 2013Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Just an update on Stanley. After a single bah the first morning he hasn't barked in the morning since. I think the combination of food, crate covering & general leadership have also really helped. He's not yet perfect, but MUCH more respectful in the house & generally better behaved. Thank you so much.
This little dog was getting his owners up with his barking very early in the morning.
They can now have a lie in, especially at the weekend!
20th August 2013Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie made us feel relaxed even though Ralph kept barking at her to start with. She explained things very well and we learnt a lot from what she told us. There was improvement with Ralph by the time she left. We have changed his diet to raw meat, he seems calmer now, We still need to work more on the barking when people come to the house and to be able to get him to the vet for Castration.
15th July 2013Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie was brilliant and really knew what she was talking about, she went through everything in an easy to follow way and we have already started to see changes in Barneys behaviour.
Barney is a SBT, a joy to train. Lots of attention seeking behaviour with toys, but he stopped doing this within 2 hours of me leaving. Still a little way to go but has come on leaps & bounds in 3 weeks.
20th May 2013Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie has been most helpful and informative. My dog is responding very positively.
lovely little westie who likes to bark in the garden, at the TV, & people & dogs passing by the house.
He has done very well in a short space of time, & the owner now gets to watch the programmes of her choice!
