Gabriel is so calm and patient and our dog really responds to his measured approach. We have learnt so much about her behavior and how to manage her with immediate results. Could not recommend his training sessions more highly. Thank you for making our life with our puppy more enjoyable for her and her humans!
Fabulous start to correcting barking behaviour!
The techniques used by Bark Busters are simple, easy to understand and easy to implement. The follow-up session was invaluable for reinforcing and tweaking our technique and for a little more work on the areas most needed. Gabriel was insightful, has a lovely gentle manner and was very supportive; it was clear his goal was to help us achieve a positive outcome. We (my dog and his human) are continuing to make very good progress.
We were absolutely blown away by Gabriel's gentle but firm nature with our staffy, Wilbur. It was obvious how much he cared for Wilbur and genuinely understood his, and our, needs. Gabriel was punctual, respectful and professional in all interactions prior to and on the days of our appointments. His advice was evidence based and reassuring. Our dog is so much happier now and so are we! We can't thank you enough, Gabriel. We would highly recommend you to any family having major or minor issues with their dog. From your very happy clients, Kate and Steve.
Gabriel is fantastic, he is a highly experienced dog trainer. He took the time (visited use multiply times) to not only show but explain dog training techniques - resulting in our puppy being a dream! Thank you
It was well conducted with plenty of information and examples of how to stop the dog barking . Also worked on building up rapport between dog and owner so that dog takes much more notice of instructions. As we have a new kitten - helped to build good relationship with 12 month old cavoodle and 12 week old kitten.
The training was explained in a way that was very clear to follow and all made sense. Very good service.
Found the training experience to be interesting and pleased with the techniques used and the noticeable results achieved.
We have an overexcited and destructive 11 month old English Staffy. Despite puppy school and obedience school I didn't think anything or anyone could discipline our dog. I contacted Bark Busters out of desperation and was dumb founded from the results from day one. I could not believe my eyes, i have a new dog and since that day he has improved immensely. I highly recommend bark busters to anyone with training issues at home.
We used Gabriel's wife Michele to do the training as she had done a very good job training a previous problem dog. We decided to get Bark Busters involved as soon as we got our new puppy so that my wife and I could establish the right habits and relationships right from the start. Michele has come here three times in the four weeks we have now had Katie, and we couldn't be happier.
My partner and i had just moved to an apartment from having a yard for our dog to run free, almost instantly he started to get anxiety and missbehaving when we left him home alone, we went for a walk to get coffee one day and saw the bark busters car with the phone number on the side.. it must have been a sign! so .. we thought we would give it a try.. We are most thankful we did, Macks behavior is absolutely improving after just two visits and we have learnt so much about why he was behaving the way he was and how we could be better parents.. Gabriel is fantastic and has helped us so much!
Strategies explained in a calm and patient manner.
Gabriel was a very patient and attentive therapist. He provided clear and easy to follow training techniques. It was both interesting and exciting to understand our dog better and see instant results in his behaviours.
Easy to Understand! Immediate and long lasting results. Gabriel was professional and very attentive. You could tell he has done this for many years and has a love for animals like we do. It was fantastic wish we did it before.
I'm amazed how a simple command "BAH" said in a loud voice followed by positive reinforcement could have a positive impact - all of this without constantly giving my puppy treats! Gabriel was very gentle with Bailey and taught me a few important things about teaching Bailey to be a follower and how to manage his separation anxiety which is a huge problem at this stage. Apart from that he also gave me advise on what foods Bailey should be eating etc. I've got my work cut out for me but after practicing Gabriel's Techniques for just a day, I can see an improvement :)
Gabriel did a wonderful job with Charlotte. He was patient with her (and with me!). She's a very big girl and I had started to lose some confidence with her after a one-off episode of aggression that Gabriel helped me find again. There were some complex issues I thought may be too late to rectify in an older dog but Gabriel was calm and confident and helpful with these. Training was tailored to her personality type - he seemed to understand her and worked within our existing training methods. Gabriel also clearly loves dogs which was very important to me. Highly recommended!
I am pleased that the techniques are safe to use and not detrimental to my dog's confidence and progress. It's always a pleasure to discuss dog behaviour, training techniques and welfare issues with Gabriel.
I am astounded at how quickly my four-legged chums have responded. Thank you Gabriel. He is an amazing teacher and lovely man.
Showed immediate improvement.
Definite improvement. Very impressed. It was good to learn techniques that did not require any harsh behaviours, ie barking collars not required.
Incredible! Our puppy improved immensely. Not only has Gabriel provided us with incredible techniques, but he also taught us a lot about our puppy's behaviour. As a result of our improved communication, my puppy and I now have a stronger connection. Gabriel took his time to help us in person and over the phone. Our first session lasted over 3 hours and he has returned every week to assist us. Our puppy no longer chews on furniture or digs in the garden. She is now toilet trained and responds to all commands. Prior to seeking Bark Busters, we completed puppy pre-school and mature puppy school - neither can compare to the service Gabriel provides! Incredible service and strongly recommend Gabriel to everyone who has a puppy.
