Grace was fantastic - from the moment she walked in she was friendly and firm with our dog and we saw results within minutes! Her training methods were simple and easy for us to follow and reinforce with our dog - he responded immediately to us when we used her training methods which was a huge relief. I wish we had seen Grace and Bark Busters when we first got our dog - but even as a one year old now he still picked it all up very quickly and easily. We are so grateful for all of her help and training!

Behavioural Issues: Separation Anxiety/ Playbiting/ Barking/ Pulling on leash/Distracted by other dogs

When i first arrived Banjo was barking at me aggressively...so i asked Amanda to separate him from us first and to take him outside locked out so i can give her simple instructions and for Banjo to know that he's no longer in charge of the front door and a lot calmer...Amanda quickly gain the control in 10 minutes and able to gain respect from Banjo. Banjo's playbiting was a concern to Amanda and Chris because of their newborn baby 8 weeks old. Dealing with the rest of Banjo's issues with great success.

From the moment you walked in you were working on the dogs behavior. And they actually responded. We were shocked. We both thought it would be a lot harder than it has been. This is only our first session but we're really happy with progress so far.

Amazing to see such quick results in response to what had become an entrenched problem of barking at TV and outside noises. A much calmer and more relaxed dog. Good training of the owner so my dog can enjoy being a dog and not my protector.

Grace Parr dealt with: Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety Toileting

Grace was so great in getting Elvis to respond in the first training to simple commands and knowing his 'no go zones' in the house. It took the stress out of puppy training, sleeping and lead training. Couldn't recommend Grace more'

Behavioural Issues: Severe separation anxiety/ Chewing/ Pulling on lead/ jumping up on people and furnishings.Barking

27th March 2019

Raymond had a severe separation anxiety to a point of becoming destructive by chewing things around the house. Being a big dog the owner Dorothy didn't want to get jumped on which happens frequently...i showed Dorothy ways to be able to separate Raymond without barking and to stay calm...respect Dorothy and not jump on her. Raymond responded immediately.

Grace Parr dealt with: Separation Anxiety Other

Grace from Bark Basters was great. We were relieved with the techniques and advice she gave us regarding our 6 year old English Staffy. Ollie had bad separation anxiety he was scared of neighbours dogs barking even the wind. More than one year ago he was placed on medication it got to a point where we felt the medication was no longer working. We had him inside the house he was starting to be destructive and even hurting himself. Ollie was a difficult dog.

Grace was recommended by friends of ours. With her techniques and advice Ollie's behaviour had changed immediately. We now have him outside during the day, only comes in at night to sleep. He has stopped the dominant behaviour towards us and is a calmer more relaxed dog. He knows he is no longer the boss. The advice Grace gave us was very clear and simple to follow. We were impressed. We are now weaning him off the medication and he has become a very playful dog. The results were immediate and we will continue to follow through with the training requirements Grace gave us and we continue to see more improvement with Ollies behaviour everyday. We would highly recommend Grace from Bark Busters to others.

Grace's technique worked after the first lesson. Bodhi is still in training so we will continue to get better. Our next phase is to learn to anticipate the behavior / barking before it happens. The foraging is making him happy, and the barring is working. We feel more in control even after 2 weeks. Thank you Grace.

Trainer note from Grace:
Cattle Dog- Bodhi 3yrs Male Desexed
Behavior issues: Barking Aggressively at visitors at the gate and passerbys/ Pulling on Leash/ Jumping on people/ Separation Anxiety.

Bodhi responded very quickly after a few minutes at the gate...no longer barking at people walking pass and visitors/ and calmer...understood the front door boundary comes in only upon invitation and has stopped jumping on the owners/ and walks nicely beside the owners.
