23rd January 2013Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jemma is already more relaxed when I leave her. She will walk on the lead without pulling unless she she's another dog or cat!
She is one recalling on long lead most of the time. After 3 weeks she has made good progress especially as she had no previous training or worn a collar for 5 years.
Jemma had been kept in a scrap yard with her brother & mother since she was a puppy.
Her progress has been remarkable since she has been with Ann, however we needed to go back to the very basics. Another couple of weeks should see the recall really taking effect.
An update from Ann. Jemma has been accepted as a Pets for Therapy dog which is great news, & the training especially the recall has been very successful. Well done to both of them!

I have found it very helpful, although there is a long way to go I am seeing the results already. Jacquie explained things in a way that was very easy to understand.

I was very pleased with Jacquie's approach, she is very knowledgeable & understanding. I now have a different approach to working with Ellie which makes me feel more confident that I will achieve really good results. The nutrition advice I received was an eye opener & thanks to Jacquie I am now addressing this. It's still early days, however, so far I am really impressed.
Lovely Staffordshire bitch crossed with a whippet, so has a lot of energy. Great session with Ellie responding really well. Love training these breeds-so responsive & love to please their owners.

I was very impressed with Jacquie & although many of her comments were new to me I can see them working. Its early days but I am confident this is going to work.

I just thought I would let you know how we are getting on with Dulcie. We took her to my sister's house in the country & let her off the lead. she was fantastic & absolutely loved it & had such a great time. It was lovely to see her running free probably for the first time in her life!
Since then , we have let her off in the park & she has been such a good girl. She has made amazing progress & almost always come back when asked to! In fact she is better than our other dog!
Your tips & techniques are so useful & we use them all the time. Thank you so much for your help.

Jacquie was so easy to talk to & so approachable & understanding. We are now on day 2 of our new approach on how to handle the barking when the door bell goes & going to doors when visitors arrive. There is still some resistance from Elsie which I was expecting whilst Bruno just does as he is asked!
Barking when left alone has greatly improved. Jacquie has empowered me to be more assertive & know how to communicate with my dogs.
My experience of Bark Busters so far, 2nd day, is good to excellent.
Over the following weeks a great improvement, a little barking when left but not every day.
Jacquie has been great!!
19th February 2012Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
The teaching was very clear & understandable. Understanding why our dog was behaving as she did was very insightful & made the training tecniques clear.
We noticed a significant difference in her behaviour very quickly-although we are still working on it!
22nd January 2012Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie was lovely. She made us feel comfortable during the session & explained everything to us in an easy to understand way. We were so pleased with the results & after one session can already see that our little Ellie is no longer the boss of the house. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone looking for a bit of extra help with their 4 legged family members.
22nd November 2011Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Wow! What an amazingly quick result following Jacquie's easy instructions. I found her to be really friendly & helpful, with lots of good pratical advice. My dog isn't perfect yet, but we are certainly getting ther with Jacquie's help.
Thank You Jacquie!
1st November 2011Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie was very patient & understanding of our problem, never made us feel inadequate, listened to our troubles & found solutions. If first one didn't work she found us something else to try. Although Norman was only a puppy, he was very dominant & difficult. It took awhile but we got there in the end & he is a different dog, not perfect but well on the way!
I definately could not have done it without Jacquie & would recommend her without hesitation. She saved our sanity & Norman's life.
A lovely Bassett but only 5 months when I first visited Norman. He is always going to be work in progress, needing rules & boundaries. The vet had indicated that he would need some very expensive scans to find out what was happening, however what he needed was consistency, training & some extra nutrition.
