Jo was really understanding. She listened to all the problems we had with Paddy. She has made a big difference to us and Paddy. We hope this will last and we can have the great life we want for Paddy and us. We had not been able to do things like having friends just pop in, but feel we can now to this. Many thanks Jo P.S. thanks from the Postman too!
Paddy is a lovely collie dog with a bundle of problems that have tested his loving owners to the limit. They have invested much time and money in training over the years, but Paddy's superior intelligence means that he has worked his way around them and found a way to keep his owners under his control. As Paddy is so bright he quickly realised what he should actually be doing and has been coming on in leaps and bounds since then. His owners patience and tenacity is certainly paying off.

We adopted Jasper at 5 weeks old. He was a problem puppy as we got him from irresponsible dog owners. Since Jo's first visit we have seen a remarkable difference in both dogs. She showed us how to correct all problems in simple, easy working ways! We really enjoyed the first session and learnt a lot. We would thoroughly recommend Jo to any dog owner in need!
I was called in to see Jasper, an American Bulldog cross who was occasionally aggressive with people and to the other Labrador dog in the family. He was very difficult to handle as when stressed he would constantly spin in circles. He showed classic signs of being separated too early from his mother and his owners had tried everything to deal with his problems with limited success. The strong bond with his family has meant that he and their other dog have responded fantastically well to training and he is already a very different dog. His family have made major progress in resolving his problems and given the level of commitment shown do far, I have no hesitation in saying that I expect them to be able to resolve all of his very serious problems.

Never thought that Bella would be able to walk among crowded streets walking so well on the lead. To go out with Bella on a lead and not be dragged along has given me confidence. Can never thank Jo enough. She has given myself and Bella a whole new life.
This lady's dog had multiple health issues. There has been operation after operation with prolonged crate rest after to get her well again. Her health issues meant she could not be trained as her owner would have liked and she would lunge at cars, bikes and people and generally get very distressed when walking. The work that has been done inside the house to get Bella to listen to her owner has paid off admirably outside the home with a calm and happy dog. Bella has done her owner proud.
20th March 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I found Jo very helpful. She understood my worries and show me how to follow up her training of Ruby and told me she is always available if I should have any more problems with Ruby.
Ruby is a lovely Labrador puppy with a very boisterous nature. Her owner was concerned that Ruby would be too distracted at Puppy Classes and wanted home training. Her owner is an experienced Labrador owner and recognised that Ruby was a little more wilful than many Labrador puppies. As she is calm and confident in herself, it was a case of showing her how to deal with Ruby's bad behaviour. Ruby responded to really well and was keen to listen to her owner and do what was asked of her.

Wow...I have a different dog. She used to urinate when spoken to. This is much better. She pulled terribly on the lead, again this was amazing to see the change in her. I would recommend Bark Busters and do already at the Vet Surgery I work for. Thank you so much.
This Veterinary Nurse hand reared her puppy from 1 day old. She has done a magnificent job with her,but struggled to deal with her young dogs fear of any visitors,even when her dog knew them. Her dog also got so excited when she went for a walk she literally pulled her over the road to the park and off her feet at times. The change is her dog is a joy to see.

Jo has been a great trainer. She understood straight away what our problems were and taught us great techniques to correct the problems. Lenny has responded brilliantly to this and within a couple of days was showing great improvement. Thanks to Jo we have a much calmer dog and I can now enjoy a long walk with Lenny without being pulled.
This Staffordshire Bull Terrier was a very anxious dog and needed lots of guidance and support from his owners to overcome his fears and enjoy himself. He worships his owners and just needed to know that he could relax and didn't have to try and look after everyone. He has done really well and his owners patience and understanding of him has made him a much more settled and happy dog.

Jo was very kind and happy person. She made me feel comfortable and put me at ease when I had to make various noises to my puppy where I wouldn't normally do it in front of people. I would strongly recommend Jo to ANYONE!
This was this young couples first puppy. A lovely Basset Hound/Sharpei cross brought from a responsible breeder. They read many books and researched on the internet about training, but found the information confusing and contradictory. They simply wanted the best for their puppy and they had taken their responsibilities very seriously. Their puppy responded very well and with them as owners he will grow up into a lovely dog.
3rd March 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Unbelievable change in our dogs behaviour. Virtually instant results. We couldn't believe how well this worked and how much more confident we have become in handling our dogs behaviour.
This couple are very experienced dog owners and devoted much time and attention to training their German Shepherd. Unfortunately the training class they attended did not assess their dogs personality correctly and the training regime undermined both the dogs and owners confidence. They now have a big bouncy, confident and happy dog who is happy to co-operate with his loving owners.

I am so pleased that I contacted Bark Busters and am amazed to discover that my dog is not untrainable or mental. I am relieved to finally have help that gets results within hours. It is very sad that my dog has been so unhappy and stressed for quite some time and I have just thought him naughty. He is now happy and relaxed. I will definitely recommend Bark Busters to other frustrated owners that I know.
This lady had tried very hard with her 5 year old Boxer cross dog and had read books, researched on the internet and watched TV programs in her quest to tackle her dog's problems. Her dog is fortunate to have such a committed owner and as soon as she was shown what to do, she applied all the principles and has had a fantastic result. Her dog has a lovely personality and delights in making his owner happy now.
3rd February 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
From the very first meeting with Jo I saw a difference in Ruby. I had already changed her diet to the one suggested and this has made a complete change for the better to Ruby's health. My main reason was pulling on the lead. After just one lesson Ruby was walking to heel on a loose leash. I had tried everything from different devices to training classes with no luck. Now I'm a very happy dog owner. Thanks to Bark Busters. Thank you Jo for your help.
This lovely lady has health issues which meant walking her cocker Spaniel was very painful for her. She has worked very hard with Ruby and the work she has put in in her home has delivered great results outside the home. She is a thoughtful caring owner who puts her dog first and just needed to know how to do it.
