What our Clients are saying about us
The session with Tracey was extremely helpful. She was very patient and explained everything clearly. It was very interesting understanding the reason why dogs behave in certain ways and ways in which to change their behaviour. There was a huge difference in Ollie's behaviour almost immediately. He is a rescue dog and was very anxious, he is now much more settled and calm.S.B., Bolton, Greater Manchester2nd May 2017
The training given by Tracey was excellent. Since Tracey has visited and worked with myself and Ralph it has been far easier to control and understand him. He has responded to the training techniques better than I could have hoped for. Tracey explained all of the reasoning behind the training techniques which all made perfect sense. Tracey has been the best thing for Ralph and myself.D.H., Worsley Manchester, Lancashire29th June 2016
Tracey was very friendly and helpful. She explained all the training we needed to do with Harry along with the reasons for all the changes we needed to make for it to work. She spent 4 hours with us and we felt that her knowledge and experience were extensive. The interaction between all of us was great and, although we were shocked at finding out how much needed changing, we were left feeling very motivated to put all her suggestions into action immediately.P.T., Wigan, Lancashire19th March 2016
Tracey came to see us asked what my problems were with Lexi she showed me some good teaching skills to use on Lexi to which she responded well to when Tracey was there. I will try and continue with what she has taught me and hopefully we will get there. Over all Tracey was great.L.G., Bolton, Lancashire4th March 2016
We took on a rescue dog 6 months ago and have had some success in training him, but seemed to slip back without knowing why. Along came Tracey who was able to identify the issues quickly and give us sound practical advice on how to correct our mistakes (yes our mistakes, not the dog!) We had a lot to take in, but were given the confidence and the tools to do it. We put the advice into practice that same afternoon and we all went to bed exhausted! This morning I took him out, practised the disciplined exit at the front door (worked first time) and out for the walk. I cannot believe the transformation in such a short time, perfect trotting at the side of me instead of dragging me down the road, and correction by me before dogs approached ensured a perfectly behaved dog - even with his nemesis (3 huskies) walking towards him he only growled quietly. Thank you Tracey, what a difference! We have lots of work and practice ahead of us but are confident that we'll succeed. Can't recommend Tracey highly enough!S.T., Bolton, Greater Manchester30th August 2015

Can’t beleive the difference a few simple changes have made in a few days. Still a lot of work to do but such a difference in behaviour.

Can not believe the difference in our puppy after just one session, it will be work in progress but Tracey was brilliant, we had been doing a few things wrong but Tracey put us on the right track. We now understand how a dogs mind works, been out for a walk with Rolo using the tips we were given and he's like a different dog.
We would like to thank Tracey for all her help and we will keep her updated with his progress.

What a transformation!
After just 3 hours with Tracey plus a bit of cascade training to family members our Jed is a reformed character.
The approaches to correcting the behaviours that were challenging us were positive, pro-active and incredibly easy to understand and implement.
Jed had a good old sulk at the new regime but is so much calmer and seems to appreciate family time so much more now he isn't defending us from anything and everything. I can't recommend Tracey and Bark Busters highly enough.

Tracey was simply brilliant - friendly, patient, thorough and professional and Bailey responded to her straightaway. We couldn't believe the improvement in such a short time, which has continued ever since on most of his issues. There are still significant problems with recall and walking on the lead but we knew these wouldn't be solved overnight and are confident that, with Tracey's help, we'll get there in the end. It makes such a difference just knowing she's there if we need her and we're not left to struggle on our own. Would absolutely recommend to anyone battling with a problem pooch:-)

Tracey was great. She was very helpful with our problems with Ted. Very professional approach from start to finish. Gave us some great advice which we have followed through with. Ted is still a work in progress but getting better each day.

6th September 2017Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
The training was excellent. Very clear and precise. Tracey spent time explaining not only what we needed to do but the reasons behind each instruction, and how our actions are perceived by the dog. Some of the tips were quite simple but nonetheless very effective. The change in behaviour was immediate, and although it is still a work in progress we are moving in the right direction.
24th August 2017Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Tracey is a magician! Within minutes of her starting to work with Cosmo I noticed a change. Her advice and explanations were easy to follow and made so much sense. Tracey is non judgemental and wants you to have a happy home, we certainly are on the right steps to this now. It's been 5 days since Tracey visited and behaviour is so much better, lots of work still to do but we are all more relaxed in the house and working on the areas we discussed in our meeting
Within 3 hours of Tracey visiting, we went from one hyper spaniel and one very stressed spaniel, to 2 calmer happier dogs who could be in the same room together, not something I expected to happen that quickly!

The training was clear and our dog responded well to it. She is a rescue dog and is elderly with issues that have caused some problems. Mitzi has done really well in the week since the training.
