Philippa was absolutely incredible, her knowledge about dogs behaviour and training was second to none. We have seen immediate results with our dog Wolf and can not wait for further training sessions to improve his behaviour before the birth of our daughter.

Philippa is a great teacher. Learning how dogs think was very helpful. I can see the training working already, but consistency and patience are key. As a first time dog owner I thoroughly recommend Bark Busters.

Trainer note from Philippa:
Consistency, persistency, patients and praise. I look forward to seeing how well you are all doing.

Philippa Dakin dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

It was great having Phillipa out to train us all ! Although Sophie went very shy and didn't misbehave at all whilst Phillipa was nearby she did start to show her normal behaviour when our other dog entered the room. We got given some clear concise training tips and we all as a family are implementing them and seeing a bit of success and it's only day two after training.

Trainer note from Philippa:
I'll look forward to seeing Sophie's progress as she grows up. Keep it up!

Philippa Dakin is a God-send. My daughter has two border collies x Maltese, as well as two girls and a baby! We needed reassurance and training. The psychology of dogs was explained simply and effectively. We were given easy-to-follow instructions, notes and an action sheet. Everything was positive, encouraging and gave hope for the future. We have had a second lesson and we are getting so much better at lead work, recall and attentiveness training. We have learned so much, even to keep them in a safe place, training everyday and appropriate toys to keep their active minds happy.

Thank you Philippa. Our life is better organised, more peaceful and each time we have more hope and joy for the future. Love the idea of a lifetime guarantee and knowing help is at hand. Also love the idea of training at home in their own environment.

Trainer note from Philippa:
It is a pleasure to be part of the journey. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next time.

Phillipa gave us great advice and remind us of the lessons we got many years ago for our other dog by Bark Buster. She was great at communication and addressed our issues with our dog jumping and mouthing our teenage boys.

Phillipa left us with great tips and exercises to work on and we look forward to the next training session.

Trainer note from Philippa:
Great to see your results even after the first lesson. Keep up the training. Good Job!

Philippa Dakin dealt with: Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Other

The instant result of Zoro responding to that one magic word, was amazing. Our other dog, Lucy, has also learnt from it. My husband James, proved to be a natural in applying the techniques we were taught for walking leadwork and door exercise. I will need to practice. I had a better result the next day, when it was just me and Zoro.

Trainer note from Philippa:
Good work! Zoro is going to love his new relaxed attentive walking style. Happy training.

Philippa Dakin dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Phillipa was excellent at teaching me how to be a kind leader to my very anxious dog. We have made so much progress in the first lesson and I can already see an improvement with her. I could not recommend bark busters enough.

Trainer note from Philippa:
Thank you and I look forward to seeing Willow become a calm, responsive and confident dog with her new leader.

Training was excellent for a first time session. The benefit being the one on one and in our own environment. As there are a number of issues to address we did not get to cover everything on this first session.

Both my dogs responded positively to the session.

Trainer note from Philippa:
Well done! I look forward to moving forward even more after the second training, and seeing how well you are all doing.

Excellent; professional, sincere and very helpful. Feel confident that with the Bark Busters form of training we will have a very well behaved and happy dog.

Lovely to train with you and Sam and I look forward to watching him develop from a puppy into a well behaved and happy adult dog.
