Kevin is a wonderful trainer! Super helpful and friendly, we were recommended him for a family members puppy and have now used him for our own. Austin responded to his training really well and Kevin new tonnes of things about his breed specifically which was really helpful as Austin is an Staffordshire bull terrier. I would happily recommend him to anyone!

Absolutely amazed with the results of our training session today. Kevin was excellent at advising and supporting myself and partner in the session today. He made us both feel very comfortable with the activities and exercises we carried out with Ralphie. We have seen immediate change in behaviour in Ralphie and we are both really pleased. We are both now more confident in taking a Ralphie out and about and can start handling his behaviour in the home now we know how. Highly recommend Kevin at Bark busters.

We are so pleased with the training our puppy Marlo/we received today. Kevin's experience, training and advice was easy to follow, and we feel confident we can implement the things we've learnt to allow Marlo to be a happy and confident dog. It definitely helped having Kevin there for Marlo's very first walk, and we're so proud of how he reacted to being off the lead on his very first trip out in the big wide world. Kevin answered a whole host of additional questions we had, as first time puppy owners, and we can't thank him enough for the help he's given us. It's made us feel at ease knowing he's there to answer any questions we have in the future! Thank you Kevin, we'll definitely be recommending you!

Kevin dealt with Barking, Other

We were looking for help with how to communicate to Pliny what we wanted him to do and to correct his behaviour. Specifically 1. Barking when the door bell was rung 2. Barking at either of us when we entered our lounge and he was sat on the sofa with one of us 3. Barking in the car before we started a journey and then when we arrived home Kevin provided clear and sound advice and when practising we saw an immediate improvement in Pliny's behaviour. We have more work to do so we were left with clear instructions and exercises to do with Pliny to continue improving the clarity of communication between him and us. Kevin was extremely personable clearly loves what he does and loves dogs. He was very Covid aware which was reassuring too.

Kevin dealt with Barking, Jumping up, Pulling, Recall

We saw Kevin approximately 2.5 weeks ago where he helped us out with Fredo, our dachshund. We had Fredo for approximately 3 months when we saw Kevin and we never used to have issues with him on walks, then over a period of 3/4 weeks he got more and more reactive to other dogs on walks, barking and lunging at every dog we saw and we had no idea why, so were unsure how to tackle the problem. Within a couple of hours of the training session with Kevin and Bruno we began to see improvements with his reactivity as well as his recall. 2.5 weeks later and he's almost back to how he used to be on walks - just with better recall! He very rarely barks at other dogs now and if he does, it's because the other dog started it and he stops as soon as we warn him to. It is so wonderful to see the drastic improvements Fredo has made in such a short period of time, I would highly recommend the training to anyone in two minds about it - IT IS WORTH IT!

The training session with Kevin was excellent. We wanted help on general puppy training as well as advice for slightly dominant behaviour. Kevin throughly and patiently helped us with many topics and our puppy responded immediately. We now feel much more confident and our puppy is continuing to do well. Thank you Kevin.

We are absolutely amazed in the difference in Henry in 1 training session. Kevin was both professional and extremely competent in giving us the skills to continue with training a happy well behaved dog. We are looking forward to lots of walks without Henry barking at every person and dog we meet! Thank you.

10th September 2020 - Kevin McDonnell

Kevin dealt with Aggression, Barking, Pulling, Recall, Separation anxiety

Kevin's lesson was extremely easy to understand and implement after he left. My mum finished the lesson confident in how to stop our dogs from reacting to other dogs (e.g. barking, aggressive stance etc) or chasing cats. The training was amazing and works wonders - our dogs are still themselves, but so much more well behaved. We have already recommended this training to multiple friends who have problems with their dogs, and I would definitely recommend anyone struggling to deal with their dog's less than ideal quirks to do the training too; I honestly can't fully put into words how helpful Kevin was to us!

Kevin dealt with Barking, Hyperactivity, Jumping up, Pulling, Puppy management, Sibling rivalry

Within 15 minutes of the training I could tell this was going to be great for myself and both dog including my partner. Both dogs responded straight away to Kevin and it was so fascinating to watch the control he had with them both. I was nervous before this started how I was going to continue with this all once he left but with clear instructions left and knowing I had the phone calls if any sudden issue arose I instantly felt much better. It's been 3 hours since he left continuing what we were taught and the girls have responded so well and I'm so relieved there are no words! Wish I had found you sooner! Thank you so much! Kevin is Extremely easy to get on with And you can have a good honest chat with and feel comfortable to ask any questions. Brno was also a brilliant help and very handsome boy too!
