Graham is a very nice person to meet. I absolutely got out of the first session with Graham what I needed. Specific advice regarding Charlie. As well the practice of his advice was fantastic. It was better then I could expect. Really recommend it. Since our first session Charlie has improved 200 %.
5th April 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
My family and I were finding it very difficult to manage the living situation with my Dog, Drama, and my Mum's cat. Also Drama was misbehaving a lot of the time. After Jo came to our rescue she taught us invaluable information that we have been using every day since. She stayed with us for around 4 hours and gave us in depth knowledge on our situation and it turned out that Drama was actually very stressed and it wasn't his fault he was playing up, he was just trying to do the right thing for his family, but we weren't aware! So after all the help Jo gave us, we now have a much happier household. Drama's behaviour has changed considerably after following her training guides. He listens to me and doesn't pull so much when we are out on walks. He has seemed to have calmed down a little around the cat but that will be a working progress as the cat has has own territorial issues. I would recommend Bark Busters as they have the know how and technique that we pet owners generally don't have. Drama's happiness is incredibly important to me and I'm so glad I got him the help he needed to teach me how to give him a better homelife.

Graham is a wonderful trainer who we can highly recommend. He is lovely, calm and gives you really useful tips that mean you can still enjoy your dog in a way that works with you. Our dog is much calmer and happier since we had the training sessions with Graham. He explains the dog psychology behind what he recommends and we saw positive results with our dog very quickly. Thank you Graham!

The training was very helpful. Graham was very patient and the techniques he showed us were very effective. He had a very calm yet authoritative manner to which our dog, Archie, an 18 month old Cockerpoo, responded well. We have been practising the techniques on Archie and have really noticed a difference in him over the first week. Looking forward to continuing!

An excellent 3+ hours. Graham started by setting the scene and made me feel comfortable and then we went through a range of techniques that has enabled me to feel much more confident with my puppy.
1st April 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Graham has been so brilliant at training Dolly and Alfred. They came along leaps already after only one session. After the second session even better. We were amazed at how well the training has worked with the training techniques that Graham has taught us and Dolly and Alfred. It is a much happier house hold now that they are responding well to the training. We are delighted with the training and help Graham has given our family. We cannot thank him enough!

Graham gave us the right tools to manage Ektoras and that has resulted in immediately improving our relationship with Ektoras. He is now a calmer dog and much more manageable during his walks.
The methods employed by Graham and Bark Busters are very efficient and non violent for the dog!
Graham was very explicit, very friendly and we had a great time learning how to be a better family with Ektoras and our two cats!
25th March 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I have only positive things to say about this service. Graham in my eyes is a real life dog whisperer, we were at our wits end until graham arrived and brought peace and harmony. He was patient and kind and had no judgement towards us. He was very informative and left us with some tips and tricks that were simple and easy to continue with when he was gone. Bruce a springer spaniel is s very hyper dog that has some awful bad manners but with Graham's help and a little patience I could see a change in him within the first visit and with a little training technique we have found ways to keep Bruce happy and active without total destruction. I would recommend this service to anyone with an unruly dog, or even just for the advice as I thought I knew dogs behaviours well but I was proven very wrong you could learn so much more from the dogs dinner to his sleeping habits. I'm so happy I found them online I don't know what would of happened to Bruce as we were ready to give up on him. Now we have the knowledge and are learning more each day I can't imagine him not being part of the family. Thank you so much bark busters.
22nd March 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
The training shown to us was quite simple to implement and we noticed a positive change in Blood our 10 month old German Shepherd within a few days. Obviously this has made our lives easier and although there are days when Blood responds better than others we now have the tools to deal with those areas that require more effort.
13th March 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I contacted Bark Busters mainly because my 15 week old Golden Retriever would not go for a walk. He wanted to go and would get very excited when we put his lead on but when he got to the top of our driveway he would stop. If we tried to make him walk he would visibly shake. I didn't know if I was making him worse by trying to encourage him or force him, so I thought it better to seek an experts advice. We also have a few other puppy behaviour issues.
Graham was very kind and calm. He said Dillon was very head strong and I did need to be firmer with him. He did some behaviour training exercises with him and Dillon did very well. Graham told me to practice these for 20 minutes a day in short sessions. After a couple of hours Graham said we would go for a walk. He put the lead on Dillon and off we went. I was amazed that Dillon walked with Graham for a few minutes before we turned around and came home. And Dillon and I have been doing the same walk a couple to times a day since. He sometimes needs a little coaxing but he walks!
As well as helping Dillon, Graham has given me the confidence to train Dillon at home.Many thanks.
