I found Linda very pleasant and easy to talk to. It is important to be completely honest regarding Cracker's habits to effect the best results from her experience and knowledge. Within minutes of her arrival our dog had learned a few more manners which have made it easier when visitors arrive. Our main issue was outdoors in the park and this was more difficult to tackle because as expected, Cracker did not display any signs of interest in bikes and runners! However, perseverance in working her with the long lead has already yielded very good results within 5 days of Linda's visit and I have had the confidence to work Cracker off lead in relation to her attentiveness ( when no cyclists or runners are about), this too has gone well over the last 2 days. Her general obedience is improving but it is still a work in progress and the important thing to remember, is that your dog is not going to be sorted overnight and without some commitment on the owner's part. Initially, I felt the fee was expensive, BUT when you consider the worst case scenario for you and your dog, having tried other methods and failed, it is fair to say the fee was worth it, and I know if I have any questions I am in a position to email or text and ask for advice or arrange an additional visit should it be considered necessary .

Trainer note from Linda:

I really enjoyed working alongside Cracker's owner to help her achieve the results she was looking for. Consistency, patience and training on a daily basis will give Cracker's owner the result she is looking for.  Well done Cracker.

Linda really great and full of knowledge. Toby caught on quickly and has improved a lot in the last few days. Have emailed her today with couple of questions and she answered straight back. Still got lots to learn but it’s a really good start.

Trainer note from Linda:

Toby is a beautiful rescue dog that has already learned so many manners before I arrived. He really only needed a bit of tidying up to make walks a little easier for his new owner. Well done Toby.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

It's true! Within minutes of arriving at our house, Linda had shown that a significant change in our dog's behaviour can be achieved in a straightforward way. We set boundaries, learned about good and bad commands, followed a short spell of indoor training with experience of the (cold and raining) outdoors - taking Ted (our main pupil) for a walk on the lead, practising recall and walking to heel, and so on. Linda gave us a short presentation with 'slides', and lots of sound advice, delivered with reassuring confidence and clear experience. A few days later, we can comment positively not only on Ted's behaviour, but also on our own! The sense of despair that had overcome us has receded and we are feeling much better about our beloved dog - who had become a real problem.

Trainer note from Linda:

Ted was so eager to learn and now that his owners are communicating with him in his own 'language' things have become a lot clearer for him. Ted's owners are committed to his training and being consistent will give them the results they want.

LINDA WAS APPROACHABLE AND A GOOD LISTENER WITH REGARDS OUR ANXIETIES AND WORRIES ABOUT OUR DOG.

Linda was patient and saw how quickly our dog could pick up new rules and boundaries. Linda left us with good advice which we are now working on at home.

Linda Dodsworth dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Pulling on the Lead
Photo of D.C.'s dog

Linda was brilliant. The following day after her visit I took my dog for her walk and beside an initial pull or two, she was walking by my side with no pulling! She has always pulled my arms off and it was no pleasure. My permanent grin walking down the A1079 must have told everyone that this was one happy owner (and dog, of course).

Still working on the barking but need to get a couple of friends to help with coming to the door.

Hyperactivity is now almost 100% motivated by me and not her.

Very simple but effective technique which Bob responded to immediately.Linda explained everything we needed to do in a friendly manner and had cured Bobs problem of thinking he was in charge in less than 3 hours. He is continuing to improve every day and friends and neighbours can all see a huge change in his behaviour. We would urge anyone having problems to seek help with Barkbusters as we are sure they won’t be disappointed in the results which are immediate.

Trainer note from Linda:
Bob responded so well to the training and he is lucky enough to have such dedicated owners to carry out all their homework. Well done to Bob and his family.
