13th September 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Very happy with the progress after only 1 lesson. Stefanie was great!
Thanks Vikki! Elie the Chihuahua is such a sweet girl but is just over protective. It's great to see her step back once she knows you're in charge. Well done!
1st September 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stef was wonderful. Very patient and clear in explaining the process. Was very impressed with how quickly my 9 year old Labrador was picking up the new commands. She has been very helpful with both his listening skills (which needed improvement) and assisted in the introduction of him to our new kitten.
Well done in practicing our techniques with Riley! He's such a bright, sweet boy and the improvements are very evident! I'm glad he's slowly accepting the kitten as part of his family. Keep up the great work!
30th August 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stefanie was very clear in her instructions & requirements of myself and my dog. She was very easy to talk to honestly regarding any concerns I have with my dog or the training. I look forward to further training Inka with the tools and skills Stefanie gave me to further improve my dogs separation anxiety.
Inka (Mastiff x Staffy) is such a cutie pie and was so responsive during her lesson! I'm looking forward to getting further improvements in her future lessons. Keep up the great work!
14th August 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
We were pleased with the training techniques used by Bark Busters and would recommend them.
Obi is a very clever poodle who clearly has been trained in obedience but still misbehaves at home. I'm glad to see he's a lot more responsive and well mannered. Keep up the great work!
12th August 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stefanie was very friendly and made us feel completely comfortable with training our beautiful Sophie from the first few minutes of our first consultation. The training was clear, concise, easy to follow & Stefanie displayed so much patience ensuring that we understood each component before moving onto the next. Sophie has responded to the training techniques so well & we have noticed vast improvements within a short time frame. My only regret is not booking a training session with Bark Busters much earlier!
It was so much fun to train such an enthusiastic family, and Sophie is one sweet German Shepherd who clearly just wants to please. It's been great to see she's much more confident! Please keep up the great work!
23rd July 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
The training was clear and introduced a new way of looking at our dog's behaviour and how we deal with the behaviours we wish to reduce. The BARF diet was explained and we are moving across to this way of feeding the dog. He already looks more lean and healthier.
Mycroft is such a independent Shiba Inu with personality quirks! Well done in reducing the excessive barking and other unwanted misbehaviors! Keep up the great work!

9th June 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stefanie was very clear with the training process and techniques from the very beginning and explained it so both myself (First time training a dog / Hank) and my partner (Trained Hank before) understood. I Absolutely LOVE that she didn't use treats or any aggression towards the dog as a training technique and rather used our voices which Hank reacted instantly too! Within the fist lesson you could already tell the change in Hank, he was listening to us and we could already call him off possums which was a BIG deal for us. He now patiently waits at doors for us to ask him in and out, he doesn't pull or growl / bark when another dog walks past him. He LISTENS to us! We cannot recommend Stef and Bark Busters enough, so much so that we are using Stef for our new puppy Nala.
Hank is a sweetheart and such a handsome German Shepherd! You can tell he just wanted to please his family! Combined with enthusiastic and committed owners, instant and lasting results was a sure thing! Keep up the great work and keep getting those compliments on his walk!
8th June 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Very pleased with Stefanie's knowledge and friendly service. Can see immediate results with Dorothy and are very confident that we will see positive long term results.
Dorothy is such a sweetie! Combined with her puppy dachshund face, it's very easy let her get away with things. Do keep up the great work in guiding her and I look forward to more lessons with her and watching her grow into a well-behaved adult.
4th June 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
The training has been fantastic. Thanks to Stef's expert training advise we are really starting to see progress in our pug and miniature pinschner. Stef is patient and explains things so there easy to understand and implement. Highly recommend and looking forward to our next lesson.
It is so much fun teaching enthusiastic dogs and their owners! Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more progress!
17th May 2017Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stefanie has a very good manner and we found her training techniques easy to understand. We felt comfortable with Stefanie in our home.
Reggie is one cute cavoodle and will need more guidance since he's still a pup. Although he can be quite persistent, it's good to see progress as his family's keeping up the consistent training. Well done!
