Catharina Baljeu 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 Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Puppy Management Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Cat's training methods have completely changed the way we interact with our dogs, and almost overnight our household became much more relaxed. Cooper, our 17 week old pup, was having issues with aggression whenever he was adrenalised. After only a few days he is much easier to calm down and no longer snaps. The rough play he and big sister, Tara, were engaging in has settled down to a manageable level and I'm sure it will only continue to get better!

By day two, Tara was walking perfectly on a loose lead and our daily walks have been such a joy compared to the way they were in the past. No more pulling and constant sniff stops. Both of the dogs are learning boundaries within the house. They are happy to sit on the edge of the kitchen when food is being prepared, even when it's their own meal time, instead of getting under our feet. We're still working hard on our front door training - visitors are exciting! - but they're slowly improving and are eager to please so I'm confident we'll have it nailed in no time.

Training using Cat's method is so much fun. We're seeing such rapid improvement in the dogs' behaviour overall that training is no longer a chore. I can't wait until we're at the stage where Tara and Cooper can socialise with other dogs at the park. Because we back on to a busy dog park, one of Tara's biggest issues was fence guarding. She would bark incessantly at the park's busiest times, causing her a great deal of stress as other dogs frequently try to dig under our fence to get to her. Now, after only one lesson with Cat, Tara barks once and can quickly be stopped and called away from the fence and into the house without any issues.

Thank you, Cat, for your invaluable advice. We're looking forward to our next lesson and doggie meetups in the future!

Cat worked her magic! She was really knowledgeable as she had the same issues with her own dog in the past! Highly recommend! Our dog showed massive improvement after only one lesson!

Trainer note from Catharina:
Mischief has been a Bark Busters member for a few years now, and when her owner needed some help with an anxiety problem that had arose, we came out for another visit. Things are now back on track thanks to their Lifetime Support Guarantee!

Cat was amazing. Her calm manner and approach absolutely turned Quinn's behaviour around in one training session. When I first rang Cat I had been in tears with Quinn's aggressive behaviour, but now feel hope that things can definitely be improved.

Trainer note from Catharina:
Quinn is a 6 year old Pappion who first had Bark Busters out when he was a puppy. When this new behaviour arose we were able to quickly respond and teach his family about the behaviour and how to make the changes to improve it! With the Lifetime Support Guarantee it means we are only a call away and no extra cost, even 6 years later...

Catharina Baljeu dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Digging Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

We discussed the problems that we had with our dog Frankie. Cat went through everything with us in an easy to understand way and made it very hands on so that we were comfortable with the training techniques. We saw results instantly and the home training program makes it so easy to continue.

Trainer note from Catharina:
Frankie is a lovely Kelpie cross who had some fear based issues mostly around male visitors... As As she is still a young dog it was a good time to teach her a better way to respond. Her family did a great job of learning to "Speak Dog"

I wished I had found Cat sooner!!! I have been struggling for 4 years with Banjo being very reactive with other dogs, pulling on the lead and barking when excited.

After one lesson with Cat, Banjo changed overnight it was incredible the difference. No longer pulls, walks off lead at my side, waits quietly when asked. He is getting better everyday and I can see he is a happier dog, always licking his lips when we are out and he is more focused on me.

We discussed his diet and I have made changes to that also and included a supplement.

I felt Cat was very easy to understand and made me feel comfortable getting the hang of the methods. I'm looking forward to Banjo's happy future as I feel I'm finally talking his language. πŸΎπŸ’ž

Trainer note from Catharina:
Banjo is a beautiful Kelpie who was a unsure with visitors and was over protective of his mum... He was a true example of how much these dogs would like their human to be in charge and take the weight of their shoulders... Jai did a fantastic job at taking on that role, and it was a great result for both of them!

Cat was absolutely amazing with Princess. Princess has some dog aggression issues and a few little things going on with her behavior. Cat came in, explained everything very clearly and in a way I understood. After the first session with Cat I saw a massive improvement with Princess and how we can communicate better and I now have a better understanding of my dog and the way she thinks. I'm really looking forward to my next session with Cat and continuing to build a better understanding with my girl .Without Cat I wouldn't be able to do that. I can't say enough good things about her! I'm over the moon I found someone who is not only caring, but who has the tools and understanding to properly help us.

Trainer note from Catharina:
Thank you so much for your kind words Hayley... You and Princess were an absolute pleasure to work with! Princess is a 2 year old Great Dane cross Mastiff. She is a sweet girl but at times insecure. We have a good training plan to work on, and I look forward to our next lesson and then getting her down to a Park Session :)

Catharina Baljeu dealt with: Hyperactivity Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Very impressed with just one session. Our dogs have changed a lot and we feel as if we have more control of them.

Trainer note from Catharina:
Monty (German Shepherd) and Bronson (Rhodesian Ridgeback) are two gorgeous boys who needed some help with walking properly on the lead, house manners and learning how to play nicely together.
They did great in their first lesson, and needles to say they were pretty tuckered out!
Great work guys!

Excellent, really clear and concise instructions. Cat was ready and willing to explain and answer all my questions.

Trainer note from Catharina:
Bobby is a rescue dog who needed help with barking and marking in the house. He responded well to the training on day one, I look forward to seeing his progress in the coming week...

I have just completed my second session with Cat. It's amazing the difference in my Dachshund Millie's behavior. I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone.

Trainer note from Catharina:
When i first met Millie she was frightened of any visitor (including me) coming to her home, and she would bark aggressively at them. We worked patiently with her and by the end of the first session she was happy to observe calmly. On my second visit she was even better with only a couple of (someones here) barks and then she responded to her mum telling her it was OK. There was also a tradesman at the home and she was happy to let them in too... Great work guys!
