Mark is a miracle worker. We are by no means fixed but we are already seeing the benefits after 2 days since Marks visit. I have 2 terriers Bella and Rosco and Rosco is very anxious which results in difficult behaviour. Mark diagnosed it, told us what to do and the humans and the furry friends are starting to have a more harmonious home. Rosco has picked things up so quickly and we are on the right path for all concerned. I cannot thank or recommend Mark enough. He has changed our lives! A mahoosive thank you from the humans and an even bigger one from Bella and Rosco.

A long over due review. We called Mark at Top Barks dog training to help with aggression issues (biting&growling), lunging at people/dogs, barking at strangers and recall work. When Mark first met Amos he wasn't sure he could work with him due to his behavior around strangers however, being the professional that he is he came up with a plan with Amos and we took it slowly. 30 minutes later Mark & Amos were best friends. Marks obvious care and devotion to dogs shows throughout. One of the most important things about Marks methods is that he actually teaches US. He doesn't just come in and say "Sit, Lay Down" He explains why the behavior occurs, comes up with a strategy and works through it until you're happy with it. Plus he's available for follow ups any time. Amos is a totally different dog today. He's become a typical friendly boxer full of boxer carachter which is too much for a lot of people, but thanks to Mark we're getting the most out of Amos. A big thank you to Mark.

Nel, my (1 1/2 yr old springer) and I have just returned home from our first lesson with Mark....we have done lots of work and training on our own but hit a sticky point with the shooting season approaching and tempting pheasants galore!! Within 5 minutes Mark had us both figured out, tested our relationship and found our weaknesses. He then put in place simple, easy to learn, logical, and most importantly for me, visibly effective steps and tactics. He was kind, approachable, professional and extremely patient when it took me longer to learn the commands than it did Nel to learn the right behaviour!!! I can't recommend Mark enough!

Mark is a fantastic trainer. Mark has done a wonderful job with Bayley and deserves all the recognition he gets.
