Our pug Parker was ruling the roost in our house. Having guests over is a nightmare, having a peaceful meal is rare and we dreaded anyone knocking on the door!! We had Malcom over today and I can’t believe the instant results with a few simple techniques. Malcom gives you all the knowledge, tools and practical training to help you change yours and your dogs behaviour and mindset. We have a long way to go with Parker but we are already seeing positive change. Money well spent. Thanks so much Malcom! 👍🏻read more
We had Malcolm come to us today and found the experience absolutely incredible. Malcolm’s knowledge of not just “dogs” but breed specific and wolves has helped us understand the psychology behind our little mans behaviour as well as gave us some really useful tips and tools. Malcolm has an incredibly engaging way about him and a super calming attitude. Me and my boyfriend were both quite worried about walking Yotto (our 12 month old German Shepherd) and now feel empowered and confident. Not only that he never once shouted at Yotto or even raised his voice. Thank you so much.read more
We adopted our Dog Leo a week ago from Spain. He is 10 months old. He was living on the streets and was put into a kill shelter on death row. Because he's never had the discipline, and to be honest we didn't know a lot about dogs in general, and also we have 2 cats that need to be integrated with him. We called upon the services of Malcolm (Dog Barking Mad). Such a lovely man who has a great wealth of experience with dogs. We now have a much better understanding on how to communicate with Leo, and how to correct any bad behaviour. We also learnt a lot of facts about dogs that we never knew. There has been a noticeable improvement already. Malcolm not only explains what to do to train your dog but the reasons for doing it. We highly recommend his services. It's fun, fascinating and educational. We award him 5 gold stars. Thank you Malcom.read more
Malcolm visited today to help with our Rottweiler x Dogue De Bordeaux. The training started the second he stepped through the door. For a dog who is normally anti-social and defensive towards new people in the house, Malcolm had him laying on his bag begging for strokes within the first 10 minutes of arriving. Malcolm has shown us exactly where we are going wrong and how we can fix it as a family. We have even seen a change in tyson a few minutes after by implementing the tools given. Can’t thank Malcolm enough, looking forward to seeing how ty changes.read more
Malcom visited us today to work on some issues with our two jacks and we are both incredibly grateful for the knowledge he has given us. there has already been a huge change in our dogs behaviour and we are stunned by the transformation.
Thank you so much to Malcolm and his team. Highly recommend! 🐶 😊 🐕read more
Malcolm visited us and our 9 months old Frenchie, Charli today.
It was a great session and all the training tips he left us with are very simple to follow and extremely impactful.
We already see a great change in Charli’s behaviour (and most importantly, ours 🙂) just after today’s session with Malcolm and we understood the simple things we have to follow so that Charli is more obedient and following our instructions, such as ‘stay’, ‘come here’ or ‘this way’.
Thank you again for today’s experience, I would strongly recommend DBM and Malcolm to any dog owners with any difficulties they have with their dog’s behaviour and training.
Thanks, Renataread more
Wow, what a brilliant morning spent with Malcom, we learnt so much, I have been practicing this afternoon, even our walk has improved already, be better tomorrow when Alfie's new slip lead arrives, but already a massive difference, I am feeling so much more confident in using commands now too, Malcom gave us loads of ideas for Alfie to do to use his intelligence to occupy him, we have played find the treat this afternoon, I think I will have to find better hiding places, he is smart ! We are now looking forward with Alfie not in despair anymore, Thank you Malcomread more
His explanations were so easy to follow and understand. Honestly can’t believe how much difference I’ve seen in such a short amount of time, not even a week! Now my niece is more interested in the window cleaner than max is! Usually I’d have to shut him in a separate room or he would bark continually! Honestly amazing! I never thought I’d be able to help max much, as he’s now 5! But who knew! Malcolm did! ⭐️read more
What Malcolm told us today was so simple yet made so much sense. We tried to over complicate things but going back to basics and learning how to communicate like a dog really is the best advice.
Our gsd Ella was so boisterous at the front door when we had visitors, or she would just bolt - not after Malcolm came to see her. Don’t get me wrong, we have a long way to go - but we have the right tools to succeed now!!
Thanks Malcolm!!read more
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Malcom who came to me today and noticing I was ready to give up on my German Shepard due me not having much control at all 🤣 !!!
He left after 2 hours of totally reforming Wrath and me (more so me ) and doing it in a way of not making me feel like the failure I was feeling 👍..
I can not recommend him enough to someone who needs help with their dog 🐕
He was definitely our hero today 😜
Thanks Malcom 5 star 🌟 and much more 👍read more
We had Malcolm over at the weekend and it was amazing the things he spoke about regarding dog behaviour, which made total sense we just never knew!
I would highly recommend using Malcolm if you have any issues with your dogs as even after a day using the techniques and tips he gave us, there has been a huge improvement.read more
Had the most informative morning with Malcom and what a knowledgable guy he is! The way he breaks everything down into “dog” is just so useful. He taught me that to humanise a canine is the first mistake we as owners make. By understanding the psyche of a dog a little more, it has made everything so much clearer for me. Looking forward to using the techniques Malcom suggested and can’t wait to see the results. Thanks so much, you’ve given me hope!read more
We had a session with Malcolm yesterday which honestly blew our minds! We really got a full education about dogs which made total sense and have been left with lots to implement before a second session in a few weeks. If you are having any sort of problems with your dogs I can’t recommend Malcolm enough but be prepared to learn some home truths!
Update! Second session today which was s practical session in the park! So much information and excellent tips to help with pulling and dog aggression. Lots to practice now. Thanks again Malcolm for all your help!read more
We had Malcolm visit us today to help and advise us with our big man. Already we can see a difference. He can now sit lie down and wait on command. He enjoys his training and learning. Malcolm also advised us on the right leads to buy to help stop him pulling and exercise. He had little tricks you can do with treats to eliminate boredom and keep my dog stimulated. We would highly recommend Malcolm to anyone with doggy issues he was calm and very friendly and explained things so clearly. All this in one two hour session.read more
Malcolm came to visit mine and my daughters chug boss 3 days ago and the difference already is unbelievable. He is 2 years old and made life difficult with people coming into the house and continuously barked. He never listened to any commandments.
Malcolm explained the mind of a dog so vividly and used scenarios which made you remember techniques. He made you feel at ease and was very helpful.
We are now on a 12 week programme with boss and every day he shows an improvement. He is now listening to commands, which he has never done, and is an absolute pleasure to be around.
We was so impressed with the 1st class service and we have a help line for the rest of bosses life if we need any advice.
We cannot thank you enough Malcolm.read more
Malcom was absolutely brilliant! So knowledgable about behaviours of a dog. Really helped with our pug cross frenchie who was beginning to become a handful. Excellent advice! So down to earth!
Thank you Malcom!�read more
Wehave a lurcher who we thought was aggressive towards other dogs, although shes good within the pack. Concerned we contacted Malcolm. Weve had dogs for 18 years and never had the need for a trainer before, so my husband needed some convincing !! Malcolm came over yesterday, and WOW what a difference in our Maisie. 2 hours doesnt sound like alot of time to have such a transformation but it was. Maisie this morning went to the dog park, with my husband, and it was a great success !! Mark is now suitably impressed !! Thank you Malcolm, we'll keep you updated !read more
Malcom visited us and our frenchbull dog Ted. After a few weeks of putting all the information to the test it has really paid off! Understanding the way dogs think has really helped us within our house hold. He is so much more patient,calm and follows the rules a lot more ! We are looking forward to getting Malcom back to help with recall. Thank you for your help !read more
Malcolm visited us a couple of weeks ago, the change in Sheldon and Albert was almost immediate but nearly 2 weeks on it is like we have different dogs, the door training is going really well and walking has improved 100%. Really really pleased with the training and outcome, Malcom is very good and his explanations really make sense. Well worth it �read more
Malcom visited us today to help us with our new 11 week old puppy. We wanted advice on behaviour and training from a early age to promote good behaviour and hopefully lesson any problem behaviour in the future. We had a 2 hour session which was excellent informative and easy to follow. We are now confident to work with Barney and teach and train him in the correct manner. Malcom was a pleasure to work with. He explained everything in detail in a way we could understand and in a step by step way that makes sense on how a puppy thinks and behave. I would recommend him to anyone who has a new puppy as this is invaluable. Thank you so much Malcom in the nicest way I hope we don't need to see you again! Although we may book you for a lead and outside walking session. First rate service.read more
Malcolm spent way over the allocated time with us to help us fix the problems we have with our 4 dogs. Following his excellent advice we are really starting to make headway and are looking forward to a better dog/life balance.read more
Malcolm came and worked with us and Lottie on Sunday. Hand on heart 24hours later we can already see improvements in her attitude around the house and with people walking past. By following the programme I hope it just gets better and better. Look forward to booking a lead and outside session. Xread more

Malcolm came this morning to help stop my German shepherd Benji pulling on the lead,after showing me different techniques and explaining each step to me I feel much more confident And I know I wont be dragged down the road lol Malcolm has given me so much easy to digest information in 2 hours regarding other areas that may help me and Benji and also knowledge on how dogs behave I deffiantly would recommend him to help with any of your dog issues.

Thank you Malcolm and DBM, I am now going to put my training into action �read more
Malcolm came today as I had some issues with my puppy Hugo growling and sometimes snapping at the children if he was on the sofa and they approached him. Also both Hugo and my other dog Roxy would go crazy if anyone knocked on the door and it was becoming chaotic, so imagine my relief at being given such good advice and tools as to how to deal with it and empower me to cope with it on my own. A few hours and I'm already seeing the benefits of his advice. I've got some work to do but I feel confident that we'll be fine and I know I can call him if I'm worried or concerned going forward. I can't thank him or recommend his expertise enough!read more
What can i say? If you know my dogs they needed this as lovely as they are and in 1 3 hour session my dogs have already completely got off the sofa and been calm around the new cats. Looking forward to the plan for the next 12 week boot camp but if you have a dog that needs a bit of work Malcolm and Tilly are the team to do it.
Iv learnt so much about dogs today its incredible!read more
Can't thank malcom enough. Not just for the knowledge of dogs and their language but for the success that has been achieved in one day and taking the time to sit and re educate us. Today has been a eye opener and am looking forward to the next 12 weeks . Thankyou againread more
Writing on behalf of my Dad - who recently adopted a retired Greyhound 'Taz'. Taz had behaviour issues with other dogs; Malcom made a visit to Dad's house and within 20 minutes you could tell the difference. Straight talking, no jargon and left Dad with a list of straight forward techniques which are proving to be very effective. Dad would highly recommend!read more
Had a 1-1 with Malcom and our dog Belle last Saturday the 3 hour session was really good and very informative. Belle is a good dog but she was barking at most people as we walked Malcom introduce us to the slip rope lead and the long lead for working on Belle's recall, I had just taken reciept of the slip rope lead the long lead is on it way. I have notice a marked improvement in Belle just walking on her normal lead using all the advise Malcom gave me. I will do another update when we have done our homwork over the next 6 weeks using the kid so far a very happy Mummy and Belle. Thanks Malcomread more

I have two happy jacks who are making my life a misery- my fault and I needed educating!! Malcolm came to visit today and explained how dogs think act behave. He explained the history of dogs and how the pack works and I feel well equipped with the knowledge to put them on our personalised boot training camp for the 6-8 weeks as recommended. His teaching was well explained and so easy to understand and follow. I would more than recommend this man to help you get the best from your dog/s. I will keep you all posted with our progress- I am now confident to tackle these two- a thoroughly enlightening experience� Thank you Malcolm - I also know that you are there if I forget bits or for any new advice should I need it.read more
Thank you so much to Tilly and Malcolm for their invaluable advise. Malcolm visited us at home and gave me back my confidence to carry on working hard with my gsd that was obsessed with spinning.

And also wasn’t even trying to spin... thank you so much �read more

I can't thank Malcolm and Tilly enough! We are already seeing an improvement in our Dobermans 'through the roof' excitement, recall and lead walking.

I Would like to say a big thank you to Malcolm and Tilly for their excellent service. When i rang a few weeks back Tilly was very patient and understanding on the phone. Malcolm then came to my home today to help me understand my Tibetan terriers behaviour a lot better. He was very freindly, polite and was extremly knowledgable. He was here for 3 hours and at every point I was learning something new. So my Tibetan was trying to dominate me and was showing some signs of food aggression, Malcolm was great at explaining about where I was going wrong making sure I understood at every point of the session. I feel much more confident around my dog now I have been given the correct learning tools to up keep and also recommendations of tools to help to. I can honestly say not even 24 hours on and it's like I have a new dog! She's been so calm and listened to every command I have given. I HIGHLY recommend and thank you again :)read more

Malcolm visited us yesterday and spent lots of time with all of us correcting behavioural issues Ted has and explained how these issues have come about. Working with the suggestions Malcolm has given us we are already seeing an improvement. With guidance from Malcolm we are able to see the mistakes we were making misinterpreting signs from Ted and vice versa.read more
Malcom was brilliant with my Rottweiler who's had difficulty with socialising with other dogs. Malcom explained the basics of dog behaviour and the signs that as a pack leader, I should be looking out for when encountering other dogs. I was taught how to assess my surroundings and potential situations, and how to diffuse any anti-social behaviour from happening. I was then given tools by Malcom on how to work my Rottweiler to get him socialised from a distance, gradually closing the gap to interact with other dogs. I am a long way from getting my big guy socialised, but already seeing improvement with him from the tools Malcom added to my arsenal.
I really recommend this service, and want to say a massive thank you to Malcom and Tilly, for being so approachable and offering such an amazing service.read more
Malcom is a really friendly guy and really new his stuff, found it useful learning about how dogs think and how it relates to the training that he taught us! Charlie and Millie were like different dogs with him!read more

Malcom visited us to help us get our two Lurchers under control. Without raising his voice and only giving light touches He demonstrated techniques on how to calm them down.

A huge thankyou to Malcolm for his help with Bailey today, Malcolm explained how to deal with Bailey with his ball/toy obsession and how Bailey should act within the 'pack', This is the first afternoon for a long time that it's been peaceful, I will continue with Malcolm's valuable advice and would highly recommend his service, Many thanks.read more

Wow what a long but hopefully successful weekend on the Reactive Dog Course, Malcom and Tilly were great helping us with the training. Hardy doesn’t (well didn’t) get on with other dogs as well as being an nightmare on the lead when out on walks. After this weekends course he has come so far and learnt so much, and so have we as dog owners. We have come away with high hopes and new practices to put into place and already we can see the progress he has made and we are looking forward to a happy future as well as so much more confidence. Thank you so much for your time and support even in the unbelievable hot conditions. Johnread more

Had a fantastic visit from Malcolm today. We were taught some invaluable tips and points to get our very barky dogs, Bear and Ted, to be more obedient and calm (desperately needed before our new baby arrives in a couple of weeks!). The lessons we learnt are already working wonders and our house is a much calmer and nicer environment. Malcolm didn't rush and spent lots of time with us and our dogs too. We would 100% recommend Malcolm and wouldn't hesitate in calling him up again if we needed his assistance! Thank you so much Malcolm!! �read more

We had a lovely visit today from Malcolm he made sense of a lot things and gave great advise of how to redirect our dogs in the hope of a more balanced pack. Although our staffy is very dog aggressive Our main issue's for today was with our youngest dog our pup frenchie as she can be a bit of a dominant Madame with approaching other dogs and has battles with my bulldog on a daily basis but I feel now we can start to tackle these issues and hopefully have a more grounded pup that socialises well with others. The learning will certainly start at home �.
Will hopefully have Malcolm back to take on a walk with us to see just how our little Lola is just so I no I'm doing the right things in correcting her behaviour and then once we have established a working progression with her we may even be able to tackle my staffys dog issues. So I'm very excited to get started on this altho is going to be hard work as I've created a rod for my own back but feeling determined � so thank you very much and will happily tell others about you xread more
