We were very impressed with Kevin as he showed us some really useful techniques which our puppy quickly seemed to pick up and ones we can work on with her. Kevin was very personable and had a very warm nature especially with Schnitzel. We would recommend to others.

To say that I'm stunned is an understatement, I have had dobermans all my life and nearly always struggled with on lead aggression towards other dogs, kevin and I spent a morning together working with my Russian import Male doberman "Sasha". To say that sasha is a very specialist animal I do not say lightly, but what I have witnessed kevin practice and teach me today has left me speechless, I've already been able to convey all of Kevin's teachings to my family and have seen an immediate improvement in Sasha's attitude to other dogs both on and off lead, kevin left me with a really simple yet detailed training structure to move forward with. Kevin has instilled a confidence in me with both my dobes (Sasha and Darcy) I just didn't believe was possible!! I'm now so excited to get outside with my fantastically well behaved dobes, I cannot possibly put into words how thankful me and my family are for what Kevin has done for us, he's given us the tools to walk anytime, anyplace with our dobermans. Oh yes no more walks of shame for us, I'm already strutting with my dogs in the direction of any other dogs, with my head held high incredibly proud of my wonderful animals thanks to kevin. Kindest regards David calland Ps I'd have paid double ????

Kevin was so friendly and helpful and clearly explained what we needed to do to rectify Maeve's progressively dominant behaviour. The techniques he showed us were simple but effective and he answered any questions we had. We could see the difference within an hour of Kevin arriving!

Kevin is a wonderful trainer! Super helpful and friendly, we were recommended him for a family members puppy and have now used him for our own. Austin responded to his training really well and Kevin new tonnes of things about his breed specifically which was really helpful as Austin is an Staffordshire bull terrier. I would happily recommend him to anyone!

Absolutely amazed with the results of our training session today. Kevin was excellent at advising and supporting myself and partner in the session today. He made us both feel very comfortable with the activities and exercises we carried out with Ralphie. We have seen immediate change in behaviour in Ralphie and we are both really pleased. We are both now more confident in taking a Ralphie out and about and can start handling his behaviour in the home now we know how. Highly recommend Kevin at Bark busters.

We are so pleased with the training our puppy Marlo/we received today. Kevin’s experience, training and advice was easy to follow, and we feel confident we can implement the things we’ve learnt to allow Marlo to be a happy and confident dog. It definitely helped having Kevin there for Marlo’s very first walk, and we’re so proud of how he reacted to being off the lead on his very first trip out in the big wide world. Kevin answered a whole host of additional questions we had, as first time puppy owners, and we can’t thank him enough for the help he’s given us. It’s made us feel at ease knowing he’s there to answer any questions we have in the future! Thank you Kevin, we’ll definitely be recommending you!
