31st July 2016Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Stan is a lovely Staffie/terrier rescue dog,he has been very easy to train apart from lead pulling and aggression with other dogs. Kevin spent 3 hours with Stan and I this morning and the difference is incredible the training was enjoyable and easy to understand and this afternoon I felt confident enough to walk him without a lead amongst other dogs and the difference is breathtaking it was a joy to take him out and no more lead pulling either. Thank you so much.

Unbelievable results! Kevin had Ozzy sitting quietly in another room within a few minutes and, as I write, he is in his crate in the kitchen for our practice session. He is already waiting at the door and gate without the command, and this evening he walked well on the lead. We even went to the pub and had a peaceful meal! Long may it continue - money very well spent!

I am amazed at the transformation of my dog Ted and my family's dogs after only an hour of working with Kevin.
Kevin was calm and encouraging and thoroughly professional throughout our session. He explained how to approach training the dog in a safe and consistent manner.
Our dogs had been ruling the roost, jumping up and barking at people passing the house, with my dog in particular being aggressive towards people and dogs if he felt threatened. Kevin talked us through how to approach these problems and the solutions he has offered have been immediately effective. I cannot recommend Kevin highly enough for helping us to overcome what had previously seemed impossible!
I look forward to continuing with our training after such a positive start.

Kevin was absolutely brilliant, he made it all so simple to understand. My friend has an aggressive dog and I will definitely be recommending Kevin to help!

I am so happy with the change I can already see in my border collie. She is so different and a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders ! She now understands for the first time that we are her pack leaders and the difference is remarkable. Wish we had contacted kevin sooner ! I strongly recommend to any dog owner that is struggling to get bark busters on the case ... it is literally life changing. She is happier ... as are we :)

This was a morning well spent and we learned a lot. Otto is already a lot calmer and has responded brilliantly. I wish I had called Kevin when I first had him 3 years ago. It would have saved a lot of angst for me. I believe the money well spent and look forward to the future with my dog. Thank you

Fantastic. I am left feeling really excited and confident.
6th May 2016Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I contacted bark busters because my cocker spaniel suffered from separation anxiety and couldn't be left for any length of time. In just 3 hours of training Stanley can now be left for short periods of time with little or no distress! In order to help him with this Kevin also dealt with his other behavioural issues that I didn't see as a problem but were all connected, he no longer pulls on the lead or reacts instantly to my requests if he does begin to pull and his recall skills have also improved massively along with his territorial Barking just to name a few!
I thoroughly recommend bark busters, the training is humane with minimal effort with rapid and effective results - worth every penny after all the money I've wasted on non effective gimmicks!

Kevin showed us how to achieve a miraculous transformation of our dog. We are very grateful for his careful and kind attention to the problems we had. We consider that this was the best money we have ever spent. We would recommend Kevin without hesitation. Thank you very much.

Both my daughter Karen and myself are very impressed with the training, we found Kevin to be excellent at both training Poppy and myself as I think I needed the training more to help Poppy to be a happier dog.Kevin was very friendly and made everything very easy to follow and understand.
