14th March 2008Manda Denny dealt with:
Superb! Amanda was extremely professional and empathetic. After her first visit, we're so pleased we consulted her! On New Year's Day, we adopted Alfie a 4-5 year old, occasionally snappy rescue dog Lurcher/Terrier cross we think, who was emaciated and had been shut away from contact with people/other dogs. He's loving, lively, fun and a very quick learner but also ignores us/runs away when he smells/sees something more interesting! Our main goals are to be able to take Alfie to the park, let him off lead for a run and know he won't bite anyone or anything; or race off out of sight but come back to us when called, no matter what distractions there are!
Amanda explained that before we can expect Alfie to behave OUTSIDE the home, we have to elicit his respect and make sure he behaves well IN the home first! She showed/instructed the whole family on techniques to practice consistently, for Alfie to treat us with respect, stop on command, stop 'mouthing', barking at the phone/doorbell, jumping up and lead-pulling. All this, with a calm approach and affection as a reward. Alfie's response was and is amazing! THANK YOU, we're looking forward to our next visit in two weeks!

Amanda has given me a good start in the understanding of puppy management and I can't wait for the next session in how to manage and enjoy Molly.

The techniques used were easy to understand, and gave us more confidence with the dog. The therapist was excellent and made it easy to control the dog. We were all relaxed.

FANTASTIC SESSION. Amanda was extremely professional and an excellent mentor. Lola responded really well to the commands on the first evening. She has been trying her luck since, but Amanda has emailed with more tips.

After Amanda's first visit, a huge difference in Rufus' behaviour. I feel motivated to continue with all advice given, seeing the remarkable response in my dog already. Absolutely amazing!! I can start to smile again.
8th February 2008Manda Denny dealt with:
There has been a huge change in Ralphs's behaviour. He is much calmer and so am I! I wish I'd known about Bark Busters years ago.
6th February 2008Manda Denny dealt with:
Instant improvement, which was unexpected. The effects did decrease when Amanda left, but Mimi's behaviour is now controllable and acceptable. A fascinating experience.
