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!!!!!

That training was nothing short of miraculous! I am not easily impressed but this was amazing. Kevin was friendly, fun, unrushed and easy to learn from. I was initially hesitant about the cost but it was worth every penny, particularly as both my dogs were helped. I think I needed the most training and if I forget anything (because we covered a lot in the time) I am so pleased that I can ask Kevin for help at any time. It’s nice to know you are not left to get on with it after the training is over. The results were instant - I could not believe my eyes! I would recommend Kevin to anyone in need of help with their dog. Brilliant!! Thank you Kevin!!

Kevin is amazing, we had major issues with Ollie barking and starting to get aggressive and within an hour of Kevin being in our home, Ollie calmed down and his barking had diminished.

Kevin was incredibly calm and explained everything in a really easy to understand way. What was really good for me was that I felt totally supported not judged and was taught really simple techniques that make absolute sense and worked within one session. Kevin taught me to alter the way I behave with Olive but still be able to love her and left very clear concise notes for us to follow with a guarantee of extra telephone support if needed.

Start to finish, Kevin was friendly and professional. He first went through a presentation which was very helpful and then on to practice doggie parenting! Alfie responded really well to the training and we were soon able to take him out also with Kevin and practice in public when walking. This is where we met Bruno, Kevin’s gorgeous and very well behaved Doberman who made very good friends with Alfie. Since Kevin’s visit we have continued with the advised training of Alfie and we can now sit in a cafe without him barking and being a nuisance as well as stopping him from barking and constantly whining in the house. fantastic results! Thank you so much Kevin and Bark Busters!

Day 2 and the difference in our 2 dogs is amazing. An almost 7 year old and 11 month JRT’s were having some sibling rivalry amongst other issues. After a clear presentation and Kevin showing us how to interact positively with the dogs, remarkably the improvement in our dog’s behaviour was almost instantaneous. We will continue with the simple training programme as already we have a happier and relaxed household
