Wow Kevin came and spent the morning with us as we needed help with our 8 month old Cockapoo. The transformation in our dog is unbelievable he is like a completely different dog, we feel so much happier and relaxed knowing we have the confidence to handle any situation going forward with Reggie. Best decision we made contacting Kevin we were at our wits end and didn’t know which way to turn with him! Kevin is brilliant very calm and explained the process very clearly.

Kevin was excellent, very friendly and professional, positive from the outset, he used a great common sense approach and literallly changed Archie's attitude within the first couple of exercises, we would recommend barkbusters 100% if u would just like a more obedient dog, Archie is a well behaved family pet but we needed educating in how to control him rather than the other way around, you don't realise how much your dog controls you until it is pointed out. We definitely learned a lot and thank Kevin for his patience and guidance and it's great to know he's on the end of the phone if you need any advice in the future. Well worth the money, thanks Kevin

Fantastic training. In less than 3 hours I had achieved a trained owner and dog relationship. So pleased and certainly didn't expect it to be that easy and to achieve so much in such a short space of time. Thank you Kevin McDonnell.

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!!
