Kevin is so knowledgeable and patient!! Both us and the dogs learnt so much from Kevin and are forever in his debt for helping us with our dogs.

8th March 2022 - Alex Fraser

Alex was very knowledgeable and gave clear instructions and advice for training Jessie. From when he first walked in he had a calm energy which Jessie warmed to straight away, and she’s normally very wary of strangers coming into the house! Alex demonstrated different techniques to practise to prevent Jessie from reactive barking when people walk past or arrive at the house, we also practised kitchen manners and walking on the lead. We were impressed that we were able to walk without Jessie pulling in such a short space of time. Alex spent the time explaining the reasons behind Jessie’s behaviour and why certain training works which was really interesting, and whilst there was a lot of information to try and take in, Alex sent some follow up notes which was helpful. Whilst on the whole Jessie’s behaviour is already good and we just wanted some advice on a few things, I would definitely recommend Alex to any dog owner wanting any level of support with training their dog.

- C, Whitefield, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)

Trainer note from Alex
Overall Jessie is a well behaved young dog. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of fine tuning the owners skills to ensure their dog grows up to be the best version of themselves. I’m looking forward to catching up with them all to see how they are all getting on.

7th March 2022 - Sharon Chapman

- H, Llandudno, Conwy (Testimonial)

7th March 2022 - Kevin McDonnell

Wasn't sure what to expect but boy were we impressed. Kevin was extremely good. He spent the time listening to our issues & identifying the problems. Within 5 minutes of training we saw instant results. The four hours passed so quickly but afterwards we felt confident to carry on our own. As Kevin said " he was there to train us!! not the dog". We fully understand that we have to carry on practicing with the techniques shown . If anyone thinks that their situation is beyond help please get in touch with Kevin at Bark Busters. It will be life changing & you can start to really enjoy your dog.

- M, Churchinford, Somerset (Testimonial)

6th March 2022 - Lee Hardy

Great first session. Barking issues have already improved significantly

- T, Stone, Staffordshire (Testimonial)

6th March 2022 - Estelle Jackson

Estelle spent the first part of the session to understand Alf's background (former Bosnian street dog rescue) and to understand the dog. She was very friendly and was a good listener. She has left us some "homework" to do with Alf before our next session in a couple of weeks time. Much better than the last dog trainer we had.

- D, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire (Testimonial)

4th March 2022 - Liz Johnson

Liz provided us with a very informative overview of the training and the thinking behind it in a friendly, easy to understand manner. She demonstrated the methods to use and assisted us in their delivery . She left us feeling that we would be able to overcome the issues we have with Jasper and the initial goals set we feel are definitely achievable before her next visit. Thank you for your help

- L, Bishop auckland, Durham (Testimonial)

2nd March 2022 - Ben Jordan

Right from the start Ben filled me with confidence he is so knowledgeable and friendly. The first session lasted nearly 4 hours, we did some lessons in the house and then went out for a walk where there were quite a few dogs, as we entered the park my reactive dog barked and growled at a dog leaving, Ben immediately took control and let her know this was definitely not acceptable, for the rest of our time he was teaching me as well as Maya how to behave correctly. We have put this training into practice every day since his visit and I am most definitely seeing improvement in her behaviour. He has given me the confidence to take her out and not avoid other dogs at all costs.

- J, Ivybridge, Devon (Testimonial)

1st March 2022 - Alex Fraser

Could not recommend Alex at Bark Busters enough. He was extremely patient with our dog Bozzer who is incredibly hyperactive and anxious with new people in the house. Alex was able to give us training advice immediately understanding what Bozzer needed. We spent a couple of hours together rehearsing new techniques to reduce Bozzer's anxiety during the day so that he is much calmer to deal with other things. Bozzer still needs work - and that is on us to do and keep on top of but we all feel much calmer and more relaxed around each other. We know there is still more work to do to reduce Bozzer's separation anxiety (this is deep rooted in him unfortunately as a rescue dog) but we fully trust that with Alex's support we will get there.

- L, Manchester, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)

Trainer note from Alex
I meet dogs of all different ages and from experience it doesn’t matter how young or old a dog is, all behaviours can be improved once we identify the root cause of unwanted behaviours and if I can train the parents. I was really impressed with how much calmer Bozzer was when I returned to seem them all and was further surprised with how calm he became when we practiced leaving him home alone. I’m looking forward to catching up with them all again so that we can practice some lead work. Keep up then good work!

26th February 2022 - Alex Fraser

Alex came round and spent a great 3 hours with our puppy Norman. He took on board our feedback and was able to answer our questions clearly with great advice and tips for us to work on. Brilliant trainer, Norman took to him extremely well. Highly recommended.

- J, West Didsbury, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)

Trainer note from Alex
I have worked with a lot of puppies over the past 2 years including a lot of first time puppy owners. Getting the basics right is very important. Lots of sleep and full tummies. Norman did really well and I’m going to enjoy supporting them as Norman grows up.
