We are amazed at the results we have seen so far with our dog and it has only been a week. Michelle is a very experienced trainer and she really knows what she is talking about I would highly recommend Michelle from Bark Busters. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Aggression, Jumping up, Puppy management
Trainer note from Michelle Howell : Working with Archie, a young boisterous yellow labrador, has been fantastic. He loved to get attention by jumping up, mouthing and biting. Well Done Kristy for taking leadership in your house! I have loved working with the whole family to show Archie what is expected of him. Can't wait for our next lesson

My family & I were desperate for intervention. My Partner & his Staffy Tonka moved in with our Staffy Kermit & our Staffy X Chihuahua Kaia. Kermit had become unmanageable and the tension in our home was constant. Kermit was aggressive to other dogs and showed no respect to humans. Prior to meeting Michelle we weren’t convinced anyone could help us but to her credit we’ve been given clear direction and the proper tools to teach our dogs to live in harmony. Our dogs didn’t view us humans as the pack leaders. It’s tough hearing the truth and it wasn’t easy at first but the improvements in our dog's behaviour has been worth it. We highly recommend Michelle and are grateful for her guidance. Michelle’s ongoing support provides us with peace of mind. A heartfelt thank you to Michelle and Bark Busters. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Aggression, Barking, Jumping up, Pulling, Sibling rivalry
Trainer note from Michelle Howell : It has been amazing working with Diane and her family, the whole home is so much calmer. It was fantastic to see Tonka and Kermit, to young male Staffordshire bull terriers walking side by side on a loose leash when just a short time before the two dogs could not be near each other without a physical altercation. I can't wait for our next lesson.

Michelle is amazing! She did such a great job explaining everything in detail and why certain things are done. Michelle is knowledgeable, friendly and empathetic in understanding how it can be difficult going through the process with our dog/s but was able to explain why and what was happening as we progressed. We saw lots of progress in the first lesson, and in fact, you can teach old dogs new tricks (with persistence!). We are looking forward to continuing to work with Michelle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Bark Busters dealt with Barking, Hyperactivity, Jumping up, Separation anxiety
Trainer note from Michelle Howell : Dennis and Dinky live by an extremely busy walkway and shopping centre. Their owner wanted to calm them down and have less reactive barking which was becoming a bit of a problem. Working with such a committed owner and such lovely dogs has been a pleasure. We are well on our way to having very calm pooches.

Michelle is absolutely brilliant! She is a very knowledgeable trainer but also incredibly compassionate and empathetic. I have two 4 yr old toy poodles (litter sisters) who are our babies. Michelle understood how difficult it was to be strict with them but explained what and why for every part of the training. She empathised with me that it was difficult but reassured me that this was what is best for the dogs and what they need to feel safe and secure and allow me to be the alpha in the pack. The difference in the girls after just one session is phenomenal. They have significantly reduced their barking, they are eating their food without fuss, they are waiting for me to go through a door and then wait until I give them permission to go through the door, they are barely jumping up on us - I truly cannot believe Michelle achieved all of this in our first session!! I cannot wait for our next session to refine our skills even more. When I went through my list of problems I didn't really believe that we would get them all resolved but after just one session I am confident that the girls will be behaving (and me doing the right thing as the alpha) in no time at all! Thanks Michelle for making such a difference to our whole family. Bernadette, Julian, Lucy and Charlie (and kids and neighbours and everyone else who loves the girls but were becoming less tolerant of their misbehaving!) Permalink

Great information provided that made sense as to how and why these techniques are being used in the training. I have already seen some improvements in the dog's behaviours which makes us happy and makes the dogs happy too. Tiring but it is enjoyable training the dogs and spending time with them more.

Trainer note from Michelle Howell : Thanks for your kind review; I always love meeting families that are committed to their dogs the way you and your family are. I am certain that your little Dachshund and Staffie are going to stop their destructive behaviour, listen when called and generally do very well with the training. I will keep working with you to stop Tofu jumping up and mouthing your guests and definitely get results on Dumplings focus skills.
