Bark Busters Client Reviews

"I have a 2 and half year old GSD who is a beautiful dog but has had a not so good start to life.. he previously lived with another GSD and unfortunately down to very sad circumstances had to be split up, it was such a difficult time for him and i looked to bark busters to see how i can get him back to being a happy dog and not the Dog that he was! I was met by a trainer called Jo and i can honestly say is one if not all the best dog trainer i have ever come across in my life. My dog Bergkamp sufferers from Separation Anxiety he struggles with so badly I leave my home to go to work and he goes crazy, he also can get upset and scared seeing another dog and meeting people on the street and with visitors in the house. Many of times I've got so down in the dumps and blamed myself, BUT there is always a solution and Jo has taught me that. I just want to say its been an absolute privilege meeting you, your work,time,positivity and continuous phone calls has made me feel like i am not alone.. Thank you Jo i feel extremely blessed to have you in my and Bergkamp's Life."

"Jo came to us first when Roman was a puppy and advised about puppy management, the changes re his hormones, nutritional advice and how best to use a clicker for his puppy training which my son was keen to use. He is very obedient with my husband and my son, but I recently lost my confidence to go out for walks with Roman because of his pulling and not listening to me when excited. As our walks became more stressful I contacted Jo again. The techniques she showed me caused no pain to my back and my hands using the canny collar and walking is now a pleasure again. Thank you."

"Jo was recommended to us when we got our new rescue dog Buster. My husband has had a brain injury and was getting very frustrated and annoyed about Busters behaviour and I felt he simply didn't like me very much. He didn't know a single command, not even sit, even though he was eight months old. I thought we had made a terrible mistake and was at my wits end. He now sits, stays, waits, lies down and gives his paw. We can now walk him properly and let him off the lead. He comes when called and plays nicely with other dogs. He still gets over excited at times and chews things he shouldn't if we don't keep an eye on him, but he will stop when he is told and does actually listen now most of the time. The best thing is that for the past month my husband had started to come out of his shell and is really enjoying playing with Buster and having him around and my two children absolutely love him."

"I called Bark Busters primarily because Sonu seemed to bully my younger brother, needed help with puppy management, chewing and how to act in general with meeting new people. Humping was also another big issue. Sonu also had a big problem with separation anxiety. Now the humping has stopped nearly, the bullying has been cut down and all the rest of the initial problems we had with him has become nothing but a memory. There was a time we would take turns to sleep downstairs (many sleepless nights) just so he wouldn't bark. Now we can have a good nights sleep the whole way through the night. Jo has helped us so much with Sonu and has continually supported us to benefit both myself and for Sonu. Literally like an angel to save myself and my family! Extremely helpful and I would without question recommend her to anyone."

"We got Yogi from a family. He was about a year old. They couldn't cope. He had separation anxiety and did lots of whining and chewing. Jo really helped to teach us techniques such as "watch me" which helped Yogi feel secure with us. He is now very happy and well behaved dog. He even gets on with the cat now. Jo is now helping us with Yogis anxiety outside the house on walks and I am going to practice the techniques she has shown me. Overall Jo is excellent and makes me feel much more confident."

"Jo has explained everything very clearly and patiently. The techniques given have been useful and worked well. Herbie is significantly better since we first met Jo. Herbie showed lots of aggression and was not easy to manage. He now doesn't bite at all and will respond to instructions."

"Everything was brilliant. Jo gave use the confidence and patience to teach Wilbert new tricks and to resolve his behavioural problems. Wilbert has progressed so well and is a complete joy to have now. All thanks to Jo."

"Jo has been amazing with my three dogs. From the first visit I saw a massive change in their behaviour - so much so that I had a house full of people and the dogs were calm and well behaved. Recently we have been doing hoover work with Daisy and again saw a massive improvement after the session."

"The training we have received from Jo has been exceptional. We are so grateful to her! Poppy is like a new dog. Her recall is so much better and walking her is a real pleasure. Thank you Jo for everything you have taught us."

"We have seen a really big improvement in Jonty's behaviour. He is much calmer and happier now and we have some additional tools to work with in the immediate future."

"Bridget's recall improved 100% after we trained her using the recommended techniques and we are now able to enjoy walking her off the lead. Her indoor barking and over enthusiastic welcome have significantly improved."

"Mainly got in touch with Bark Busters as Karma was a very scared little dog. Now her confidence is well on the way of being sky high. Nothing can hold her back now! Lizzy's territorial barking is now but a distant memory. Jo is very friendly and helpful. Never too busy for me and my girls! Would highly recommend her to anyone."

"I honestly didn't think Frankie was trainable, but thanks to Jo he now comes when called. He doesn't scream when taking him out for a walk or in the car. He listens to me and does what I tell him. He doesn't snatch food aggressively and nip my fingers. I can walk him with my Shit Zhu Freddie now which was impossible before. He is good with my grand daughter and doesn't nip her feet anymore. She can cuddle him and they fall asleep together. He loves the clicker and this helps me let him know what I want him to do. It has been so good I hardly had to use it after the first 5 weeks. I have had dogs all my life and have never had a dog as difficult as Frankie, but now he is a joy to own."
L.S., Carshalton, Surrey 20th March 2015

"We have had two training sessions with Jo now and she has helped us so much. Not only with our puppy but also training us to be good owners. We have done lots of research on the internet on how to train a puppy but Jo introduced techniques that we hadn't come across and everything is working so well! Thanks Jo!"
J.L., Lancaster Gate, London 19th March 2015

"Jo immediately gave us confidence in her ability and was able to explain behaviours we had not seen or understood....her manner was relaxed and even though it was not early in the day took the time she and we needed. Her advice was welcomed and having followed it we did see some improvement and by the time she came a second time the improvement was noticeable.... Jo took her time and we were relaxed with her in the house and confident in what she said and the advice we received I would highly recommend her for her knowledge, style and her ability to interact positively with us and with the dog...Thanks"

"We had a visit from Jo after 2 weeks of bringing our puppy home. She was excellent in giving us so much information about ways to train him, dietary advice and using a bell to get him to tell us when he had to go outside. He got the hang of this after one day and now tells us when he needs the back door open for him to go! Jo gave us all the information we needed and the website to go to to get the bell. He now is on a raw food diet and is a very happy little boy. Jo came for her second visit and has advised me how to train Jasper to stop pulling on the lead and I am sure it won't take long for us to achieve this. I am very pleased I chose this method of training rather than weekly puppy lessons as I am sure in just two visits we have learned more than we could have done going to weeks of training. What is also great is that the whole family could attend and benefit from the sessions."

"Jo was brilliant, with Macy and with my husband and me. She was a strong, calm, kind presence. She explained why Macy is anxious and gave practical solutions of how to reassure her. She is helpful and non judgemental. As she was leaving, a delivery man appeared at our front door with a takeaway. The doorbell is a huge anxiety trigger for Macy. I told Macy to go upstairs and not stay at the front door as Jo had advised and Macy did it! I have high hopes for Macy and for us. Thank you, thank you Jo."

"Very helpful and informative. We love the different techniques and believe Bruce has responded to them very well. We have seen a real change in the behaviour of our dog and we are very happy with this. Jo is very friendly and we highly recommend her to our friends and family."
A.S., Rochford, Essex 8th December 2014

"Jo has been really helpful and supportive with our new puppies, from getting off on the right foot to dealing with issues as they've come up. She has been responsive at each point and provided practical advice that has been effective. Would definitely recommend!"
M.H., London 24th November 2014

"Mylo is now 6 and a 1/2 months old and this is our second home visit with Jo. We have also emailed each other several times. Her advice has always been helpful and constructive and given in a most friendly way. Together we are dealing with his/our "problems". She is always upbeat and sensitive to our questions, and never gives the impression that they are the same ones she gets asked by many people over and over again. She really is a remarkable find."
