Exceptional. Kevin’s manner and delivery was amazing. We feel like we have a different dog, but more importantly the tools to deal with the behavioural issues. We all feel like a huge weight has been lifted!

Before Kevin visited we felt like we were owned by 2 Dachshunds.... Now we feel like we own 2 Dachshunds! We have taken back control! We now have 2 polite sausages that sit and wait to be invited onto furniture and no longer sleep in our bed but happily in the kitchen. We also had issues with barking at everything walking past our garden and barking at everything on walks. The difference in them after a few days is incredible. Our youngest dachshund pulled extremely badly on the lead and although he is still doing this it is much less and Kevin has given me lots of exercises to do with him every day to help reduce the pulling even more. Before contacting Kevin I had read so many different approaches on the Internet but none seemed to work so I didn't stick with them. We will definitely keep up the approach Kevin taught us because the dogs have taken to it so well and so quickly. My husband was skeptical that the boys would ever change but he is eating his words!! A massive thank you to Kevin and Bruno (who was absolutely amazing with my two!) for giving us the confidence to go forward with training so we can enjoy walks with our boys instead of being stressed out!

Excellent. Was very impressed at the immediate effect on our dogs and to learn how we are supposed to behave in order to have well behaved dogs.

Kevin is an excellent trainer, very friendly and very knowledgeable which made for an entirely positive session. He was a consummate professional throughout and by the end of the session all three of us felt much more confident that we understood on a different yet very simple level how we could gain the best from Hugo in order we can all take the best out of each and every day both at home and away. I would wholeheartedly recommend both Kevin and BarkBusters training to anyone experiencing any issues with their 4-legged friends!!

My daughter-in-law Alison and I were amazed at how quickly Ruby responded to the commands. Kevin clearly and patiently explained exactly what we had to do and we even got commendations from him for our good behaviour. We will certainly recommend Barkbusters to all our friends and especially our trainer Kevin. So pleased we chose Barkbusters to help in training Ruby and already see a marked change in her behaviour.

Within 5 minutes of training , we saw huge improvements in Nora's behaviour towards us.Nora was very responsive to all instructions. Not only did we train indoors we also worked in the garden and then on the beach . Kevin was very friendly and patient with us , as it was us that needed to be trained ! Kevin bought his dog , Bruno who was a very polite boy , who helped Nora understand what was appropriate behaviour . As I type this Nora is fast asleep in her bed which was unknown before the training , we cant believe how easy and simple it was . Thank you Kevin , we all enjoyed the session , I look forward to updating you later next week .

Well what can I say!!!! I was not expecting the results that we had and certainly not from Milo. I was expecting it to be like the dog training on the tv and it is nothing like that. Within minutes Milo stopped trying to bite the vacuum or grabbing anything out my hand! Maya has also stopped barking! I seriously cannot believe how with just a few hours I really feel like my whole atmosphere has changed .. It’s a pleasure to walk with him, in fact I’m taking him out again whereas I’ve been avoiding it because he was pulling so much.. now he stays by my side! I know for people with troublesome dogs it can be hard to believe this is possible but I was nearly in tears with the results and the relief! I am so over the moon with Kevin and he was really friendly and great to meet his dog too!!! Thank you X a million!!!!!
