Very pleased with all aspects of the advice and training given. Progress has been noticeable from day one. Lola is now showing confidence around other dogs.

Fantastic training. Jo is excellent in using her own experiences to adapt her training techniques to suit individual situations as every dog is so different. We have learnt so much about our dogs personality and the reasons behind his fearful behaviour towards people. Trying out different techniques and understanding our dog better has enabled us to know how to respond to him to get the best results. His confidence is growing and I am so thrilled to see a light at the end of the tunnel to him becoming a much happier and less fearful dog around people.

Absolutely fantastic, money well spent. Jo and Graham are very supportive, understanding and professional. Within a week our puppy stopped chewing and biting we could not have got through this without their support. It's like we have a different dog, and we now regard Jo and Graham as friends. We know that phoning/texting anytime is no problem, they are always willing to help and are always welcome to drop in anytime they are in the area. They are both a real asset to your company and we would recommend them without hesitation, we are truly grateful.

Jo was amazing she spent time listening to our concerns about the dogs there was no blaming accepting that each of us are individuals in caring for our dogs and as such our training plan was specifically aimed at our needs .I have to say once she explained where the disruptive behaviour came from it made it so easy for us to see why we had a problem .An excellent outcome to what had been a very worrying situation .I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo she has been a god send

Graham came to help me with Chester, our working cocker spaniel puppy, as he was coming up to 6 months old. We had taken him to all the group puppy classes where he topped the class, and I had been working hard with him at home. But as he reached 5 months he had become snappy, barking at people all the time, especially if they came anywhere near me, scaring my 6 year old son and constantly demanding my attention. I worried that I had bought an aggressive dog! Graham was amazing on his firs visit - he very quickly observed that Chester's "aggression" was not an attempt to dominate, as I had feared, but that actually Chester is quite a subservient dog and was actually a bit nervous. A lot of his behaviour stemmed from trying to protect me when other people were around. Graham gave me great advice on how to give Chester firm boundaries to reassure him that I am the boss, and he doesn't have to worry. We saw an immediate improvement in Chester and he has turned back into the playful and loveable puppy that we hoped we had got! Graham also helped with walking on the lead - we were struggling even with a harness to keep up with Chester's pulling. After one session with Graham, Chester is transformed! The harness hasn't been used since then, and with gentle reminders when we need them, Chester is now happily walking with a long lead and collar. Graham has also done some specific work with Chester and my partner, as Chester used to ignore him and only respond to my commands. Now he is better bonded with both of us. I would highly recommend Graham to anyone looking for help. His intuitive understanding and experience of dogs is invaluable. He can definitely help translate dog language into human! And his calm, gentle manner is a pleasure to work with. I now have a happy dog, happy son and a happy partner - so I am happy and enjoying my puppy again.

Graham was very helpful and understood our issues. He was very clear in the training and took time to show me what I needed to do.
30th September 2015Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
It is clear that Jo knows Dogs. She gives excellent advice about the problems and answers all questions as they arise. This makes me feel more confident dealing with Clyde's respective problems. The guidelines are clear and easy to follow
22nd September 2015Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Graham is a very helpful and calm person. He helped change Bulcsu's behaviour in a dramatic way. He is a young mastiff boy and quite headstrong, but the techniques and the changes in our lifestyle already had a tremendous impact. I am optimistic about the future for Bulcsu and I would highly recommend both Bark Busters, and Graham personally.
9th September 2015Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Very hands on training - I loved that Jo bought her dog to test Jessies reaction and I also loved that we actually went out into the real work rather than just talking about it at home / in a class. I also loved that Jo talked about Jessies natural instincts and how to live alongside that rather than fight it. Our practice has been going well and I can't wait til the next sessions.
6th September 2015Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I found Jo and Graham very professional yet kind and caring. They both helped me to have confidence in handling my dogs aggression.
I had experience of another Dog Trainer so I can compare the training given by Jo and Graham and am so pleased they have been able to help me. Both are brilliant and would certainly recommend them to anyone with a problem dog. Many thanks Jo and Graham. Noosa is a different dog. So delighted I clicked on your web page.
