The instant result of Zoro responding to that one magic word, was amazing. Our other dog, Lucy, has also learnt from it. My husband James, proved to be a natural in applying the techniques we were taught for walking leadwork and door exercise. I will need to practice. I had a better result the next day, when it was just me and Zoro.
Good work! Zoro is going to love his new relaxed attentive walking style. Happy training.

For a young dog/puppy that is nervous, finds it hard to calm down in group sessions and has had a scare from a very large unsocial dog out in public. We have found our fist lesson at home very rewarding. Having Cat come to the house so that Emma has a chance to learn in a less stressful environment has helped with Emma and that I am very thank full for.
Emma is a 7 month old Kelpie cross German Shepherd. She had issues with jumping, nipping, barking, pulling on the lead and could not calm down.
She responded so well, and listened to her owner's directions. We were able to address all these issues in her first lesson, and I am looking forward to seeing her progress at our next one!

We are so thrilled with our Bark Busters trainer Jane and the wonders she has worked with our GSP Sascha. It’s just beautiful to see Sascha respond and want to learn and please.
Great work - Sascha's mum and dad really took to Bark Busters' positive reinforcement training methods.

10th April 2019Emma Reeves dealt with:
Emma was excellent. She was incredibly thorough and asked us so many questions - as a result I was confident that she had a good understanding of us and our dogs, as well as that our session was tailored specifically to our needs. The techniques are easy to apply and do not require any physical reprimanding of the animals which is something I was worried about. We saw a massive improvement just in the first session, and have had continued success with the training - now over a month later. Emma set realistic expectations with us and was clear about what we need to do to ensure the training worked. I would highly recommend Emma to anyone having behavioural problems with their fur babies - it’s a worthwhile investment!
Thanks Emily 😊
Bronco, 5 years old, & Iggy, 18 months old, are both British Bulldogs.
Their family called Bark Busters for help to deal with a list of problems including:
🐾 aggression over food and toys
🐾 behaviour when visitors arrive
🐾 pulling on the lead
🐾 dog reactivity
🐾 boundary control
🐾 rushing through doors
🐾 toileting in the house
🐾 not coming when called
🐾 sit & stay
They all did a great job and I'm looking forward to our next session soon. 😊

Jane was great, she knew exactly how to tame all of Alfie’s bad behaviours. It was a lot more simple than I thought it would be which made it achievable to fix in a short period. She made us understand why he’s doing the things he is and how to manage them before it escalates. Very happy.
Alfie's pawrents did an amazing job following through with Bark Busters training methods and Alfie is certainly happier and more content now that his mum and dad have learnt to speak dog!!

9th April 2019Philippa Dakin dealt with:
Phillipa was excellent at teaching me how to be a kind leader to my very anxious dog. We have made so much progress in the first lesson and I can already see an improvement with her. I could not recommend bark busters enough.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing Willow become a calm, responsive and confident dog with her new leader.

8th April 2019Sue Good dealt with:
Sue was fantastic and I was very impressed that she arranged to come help us the next day given Murphy was only 10 weeks old with bad separation anxiety.
Sue has really been a life saver for our family as Murphy was very distressed and we basically couldn't leave him alone at home. He responded really well to her and I can't thank her enough for giving us the tools to work with Murphy to overcome his separation anxiety.
He is now like a different dog. Sue has always been in touch to see how he is progressing and there to answer any questions we may have. We still have a bit further to go but Sue has outlined to us that consistency is the key and this is so true.
I look forward to working with Sue going forward in Murphy's puppy management.

7th April 2019Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stef was very useful, as Milo has gone from thinking he owns the places to now realising that we are his leaders and he can only do things if we say it’s okay to do so, he is also learning to loose lead walk and doing well straight away. She also is fantastic at keeping up to date with everything as she will message you to see how everything is going.
Thanks Emily! Milo (Border collie x staffy) is a timid dog whose fearfulness sometimes gets the better of him. Although he clearly does want to please his owners, he also can be unsure at times and also act out due to his fearfulness. Well done to you and your family for slowly improving his confidence and refocusing him when he does misbehave. Keep up the great work!

7th April 2019Kelly McClelland dealt with:
Kelly was exceptional. She always answered our questions and provided great advice. She is incredibly knowledgeable in all areas of doggy life - not only training but general health and wellbeing, grooming and behaviour. She is an absolute credit to the Bark Busters family and we can't wait to return for group training.
This is such lovely feedback, Hayleigh! Your gorgeous Frenchie, Brutus, improved out of sight during Puppy Pre-School @ Yeronga Vet, and I loved all my cuddles and watching your bond grow. Well done - can't wait to see the three of you at Group Training!

7th April 2019Philippa Dakin dealt with:
Training was excellent for a first time session. The benefit being the one on one and in our own environment. As there are a number of issues to address we did not get to cover everything on this first session.
Both my dogs responded positively to the session.
Well done! I look forward to moving forward even more after the second training, and seeing how well you are all doing.
