Mark Gall dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity 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 Other

A simple and easy way to understand how a dog operates.

Stanley was focussing and listening to me with in a very short time and not pulling on the lead, not rushing the doors, sitting and waiting, he wasn't scared of the world ,was looking around ,checking things out which was not what he was like before.

He would react to anything and try to run away from it including the paddock which we run them in, I could even get him into that paddock at the first attempt to enjoy the space.

There was no pressure on the dog or myself which made it easier to get the message across.

We had thunderstorms that night and with the natural relaxants and Marks Bark Busters techniques Stanley was not worried about them. Still not enjoying them but much less stressed.

Trainer note from Mark:
Stanley is a rehome dog for the owners but was extremely worried about life as he'd no training and never been out of his yard , possibly tied up most of the time.
A beautiful bull breed cross with a soft nature.
He really didn't know what to do.
Fantastic response and committed owners . Awesome work

We saw immediate improvement with our two dogs, Charley and Sputnik (both are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels). Mark helped us understand why our dogs were behaving the way they were, and helped us to become better pack leaders. His techniques were excellent, and he has been very responsive in terms of followup questions. Our dogs are so much better than they were before we met with Mark. I am thrilled with the service and cannot recommend it highly enough. I wish we had done this earlier!

Trainer note from Mark:
Sputnik and Charley are great temperament dogs but barked and took on the visitors in a highly exciting way. The owners implemented our techniques and with in the lesson immediate improvement.
Great work guys.

Good explanation of how puppy thinks, and how we need to treat him to help him be a well behaved dog as he grows

Trainer note from Mark:
Previous clients of a behaviour issue dog they decided to get us in right from the pick a puppy , which one , what temperament ,stage.
The 1st lesson of several as well as puppy school this pup is going to cared for with supervision by the teenage son, so implementing the importance on focus and training was important.
Great wee pup and he'll do well.

I found the training very helpful. It was clear and concise and sensible. It definitely fitted what we needed. It was great to have some pre reading. And I am really pleased we have written notes as well as info sheets. I also really like the home training schedule I find this helpful as I like to have lists to follow. Having Mark come to our house was great.

Trainer note from Mark:
Lovely dog but has been in charge for a little while ,a 6 mth Schnauzer and a new baby in the house changes the dynamic as well. She barked and pulled and rushed the door, also recall is an issue, even more so with a baby on board. She'll be a work in progress as most young dogs are but responded during the lesson. lead work she's a challenge with but has been let do her thing until now. Nice effort guys.

Excellent practical lessons and tips which is already helping (after only a couple of hours).

A very in charge dog with barking issues.

Trainer note from Mark:
The lesson was with the family and one of the children so the consistency will be there and Lola a one year old Staffy with Fear issues showed focus skills not seen by the owners before. Nice work guys.

Mark Gall dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

I was amazed how quickly Mark identified the underlaying causes & problems we were having with Becky. I have had dogs for nearly 50 years & I realized that I still had much to learn. The changes I have noticed in Becky's behaviour within just a few hours of implementing Mark's recommendations have been quite astounding.

Trainer note from Mark:
Becky is a Lakeland terrier and pushy with it. nice temperament just a bit in charge. She and the owners, active older folk, responded well and applied the process with almost instant results.
Still need to keep up the focus work but great so far. Well done guys.

Within 3hrs Mark gifted me an excellent well behaved girl. Mark gave me the confidence in myself to 'Lead' our pack. His calm manner reduced stress both within Lukita and Myself. The training aids & Wagg Walker harness provided are miracle makers. Thank you.

Trainer note from Mark:
This clients dog is a very large German Shepherd who was barking at everything and running the fencelines but also dragging the owner down the street. Just a boisterous but strong dog thinking she was in control. Fantastic effort by the owner to apply and diligently do the focus work to get back on top of her pack

Mark was fantastic. We learnt so much on how to get our 5 month old lab focused and listening to us. He started responding straight away and we now have the confidence that we are training him the right way. We have plenty of homework to carry on with and are looking forward to our next lesson. George loves his a Game Changer. Thanks Mark. So worth the investment.

Trainer note from Mark:
Awesome wee dog with separation anxiety when left. Responded well and he is still happy about it. Baby doing the the baby steps to a socially acceptable dog. Nice work guys.

Right from the get-go Rosie responded really well to Mark's training. He was friendly and informative and was able to answer all our questions and problems directly and easily. Rosie has already shown huge improvement in her previously dominant behaviour in just a couple of days. The techniques Mark taught us are easy to follow and only require small changes in our day to make it work. Would definitely recommend BarkBusters to anyone having any issues whatsoever with their dog's behaviour.

Trainer note from Mark:
Rosies behaviours were related to Child fear aggression also to bikes and moving things.
This is a dog who never stops moving , whilst in the garden running a racetrack around in a circle on the front lawn. So border collie , always the same way. Lots of OCD but major problem was sibling rivalry with her gentle flatmate buddy. She responded beautifully and it took just a few setups to get everyone on the same page. Awesome work gang.
