Philip Comans 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

We have been struggling to stop our dogs barking and pulling on the lead as well as aggression. So we decided to find a professional dog trainer to teach us how to teach our dogs. We are glad that we chose Bark Busters and have Philip here to help us. He showed us different technique to stop our dogs bad behaviour which were absoluatly effective. Those techniques are perfectly match with our goal which is non physical pucnishment/any physically harm to my dogs.

Philip is punctual and friendly. He let us understood dog’s behaviours and their view of the world. He is also a marvel of patience, he explained and showed us again and again without any hesitation.

During our training session, he was not only showing us those technique but also educated us on how dog’s general well-being that will have a significant influence to their behaviours. We also learnt how to use dog lead and others equipment appropriately.

We will definitely recommend Bark Busters and Philip to others. Wish Philip and Bark Busters all the best in the future. We will see Phillip again in one week for follow up appointment and have lifetime supports . Cheers

Trainer note from Philip:
Thank you for your kind words May. May’s 2 dogs are great dogs although they need some guidance. Ceacer is a 4 year old male Border Collie who is dog aggressive when out. He also jumps and barks. He pulled on his lead to the point of choking. Darcy is a 5 year old male Golden retriever x Samoyed and he also pulled and barked. Together they sometimes fought as well. Both responded very well immediately to our gentle methods and I’m confident will continue to improve with consistent training. Keep it up May and see you next visit.

It was a hands on, practical session with positive results.

Trainer note from Philip:
Boris is an 8 year old male German Shepherd and a lovely big and hairy fellow! We learnt lots about helping Boris to find peace at home. With our suggestions and some daily exercises Boris will be able to stop being so on edge. He’ll calm down and be able to rest rather then continue to wear a path around the yard. We introduced proven strategies to curb his nuisance barking.

Philip Comans dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

After two hours of training we saw instant results and we were amazed at how our dog reacted to us after this short amount of time.

Trainer note from Philip:
Max is a 7 month old Golden Retriever who was a handful. He needed to focus on his humans. He nipped, jumped, pulled and generally misbehaved. His human is expecting in a few months and needed help to make sure Max would not jump on her with a new baby. Max also reacted to dogs when out. He did supper at our first lesson and with more work will improve in all area. We already solved the jumping in one lesson!

Very thorough and interesting.

Lots of great information.

Trainer note from Philip:
Hooch is a 2 year old male Cattle Dog and he was barking a huge amount. Every little noise set him off. A thousand times a day. Especially the neighbours coming out into their yards or on their decks. Hooch showed us his true personality today. He’s a lovely soft natured boy and his barking is all an act. He needed a little guidance as to how should behave at home and he needed to understand that it’s not his responsibility to guard the yard! He got it! A very good start with further improvement ahead. Well done everyone!

At first I was a bit sceptical as to if this would work or not as my dog was a massive handful very energetic no ears type of dog but I decided to give it a go and myself and my family are blown away with the service Philip provided. 2 hours later we were all trained and so was our puppy it as if she is a different dog a dog who listens. Bark Busters have made our life a lot easier.

Trainer note from Philip:
Marley is a beautiful 1 year old female English Staffy who was jumping up on everyone and nipping at them. She did as she pleased and didn’t come when called. She raced around the house when let inside and was no fun to be around. As her lovely humans said, she totally transformed during her first lesson. We all saw that she can be well behaved and just needed some guidance. Well done family!

The training was very informative and I have seen good results instantly with Alfie. So I am very happy and continue with the training technics Phil has provided

Trainer note from Philip:
That’s great to hear. Thank you! Alfie is a 2 year old male. Order Collie. He is really reactive and aggressive towards dogs when out on walks. He also reacts to anything moving past him including bicycles, skateboards, busses and noisy trucks or cars. We started on his road to recovery today and he responded really well. I’ll be back to work further with you on his reactivity. He’s such a big softy! Lovely boy.

I feel like I understand my dog so much more now. I feel really positive about the future with my dog! I'm looking forward to giving a positive update in a few weeks. I was worried that we would be barking and growling at our dog or that we would be judged for spoiling our dogs and "making them naughty". Philip was really lovely and made everything easy to understand. The training we did in a few hours showed instant results which I didn't expect at all with our crazy doggo! I did not think I would be walking her in the street today with that result! Thank you so much!

Trainer note from Philip:
Thanks so much your positive comments and instant results are what motivates me. Bella is a 7 month old rescued Fox Terrier cross Jack Russell Terrier who went crazy when seeing other dogs on a walk. She also fought with her 13 year old mate Buddy, also a Jack Russell cross. She also barked and toileted in the house. We saw excellent improvements in the street with other dogs barking at her and with practice I’m confident she will be more relaxed. Toilet and barking issues were also tackled st our lesson. Thanks Kelly and keep up your new Leadership Role!

After spending a couple hours with Philip we feel more confident in the training of Nala and look forward to having the tools and training to ensure our dog fits in harmoniously with our family environment.

Thank you for your time and knowledge.

We look forward to the next age appropriate session.

Trainer note from Philip:
Nala is super! A 12 week female Rhodesian Ridgeback she has a beautiful personality. We started her Lifetime Support with Bark Busters today and she did so well. Responded to our simple vocal refocus and ceased biting immediately. She’s just terrific! Loved her ❤️

Philip arrived precisely at the agreed time and greeted us warmly. After initial niceties, Philip got straight down to business telling us firstly about the business and it’s founder and a little about his history training dogs.

He then went through a relatively quick but detailed folder of what will be achieved with his service.

We then moved onto the practical part of the session with our Chocolate Labrador ‘Fudge’. Philip gave us very easy to follow instructions and a number of activities to do with Fudge, which I’ll be honest, had immediate positive reactions from Fudge.

We spent a good portion of time going through key routines before finishing the session with a final sit down and directions to carry on with.

Philip was very patient with both dog and humans (us) and I have no doubt we will be successful moving forward.

Trainer note from Philip:
Fudge is a 5 year old chocolate Labrador who has become increasingly Dog reactive and aggressive. He pulled so hard on his lead that his humans had sore shoulders! After one lesson he improved enormously. We will be seeing him some more over the comyweeks to continue his Bark Busters training. Well done Fudge (love his name!)

We are really appreciative of the great advice that Philip gave us to help train our dog. In just a couple hours Benne learned that we are in control and he is less fearful and aggressive. He responded so well to the simple instructions that Philip gave and we would highly recommend this service.

Trainer note from Philip:
Benne is a 12 month old Cavoodle male and he was very nervous and skittish. He was attacked by another dog some months ago and since has been dog aggressive himself (poor boy). Today we began to rehabilitate him and his humans started to show him he is safe with them in the leadership role. He showed what a lovely nature he has and he’ll be better able to deal with his fears as the training settles in. Keep up the daily exercises and see you soon for our follow up.
