Our story begins with Lola an America Staffy X Boxer/Labrador retriever.
Lola was a surrendered dog to a shelter we visited where we then decided to adopt her into our family. Unfortunately Lola’s history was lacking in information.
We fell in love with the concept of adopting and rescuing a dog and the dream that everything will work itself out.
Lola was at the time of adoption a very boisterous 2 year old.
We also have a seven year old family Shiba Inu.
I truly had no idea of what lay ahead.
Our family consists of four.
Our children are young adults and with that we all have different ways of dealing and expressing ourselves. We are also very relaxed, stress free and generally a quiet household.
We felt extreme pity for Lola and there was the start of our own undoing. She was on the beds, the couch, walking in the kitchen, pulling when on walks, barking at the gate, barking at our family dog, showed dog aggression and people reactive traits.
It was chaos.
We trained Lola where she would sit, drop, wait and walk beautifully on a lead whilst in our backyard but once on the street it was hell. Her behaviour was out of control at times, whether it was anxiety or nervousness.
In stepped Peter from Bark Busters.
He has trained not Lola but US.
We are now, as a family, all on the same page. He has shown us not to pity Lola but to embrace her and show her where she fits in the family order.
We now have no issues in the household with her. Our Shiba is no longer being barked at. Peace has been restored and tensions have gone.
Peter has given us the tools to now enjoy our walks on the street and outings to the parks. Slowly each day Lola improves on her outings; coping better and responding quickly.
Peter has given us the confidence to tackle a situation that we crumbled at before. People I met on my walks who knew Lola before bark buster can’t believe it’s the same dog.
Each day is a new day and some of those days we have hiccups however the next day seems better than ever. We still have more work to do but the outlook is positive. Peter’s words of wisdom ,encouragement
and praise are rewarding as too are the efforts of completing the training schedule. The outcome has been worth every bit of effort. It is an awesome feeling when you walk somewhere with a well behaved dog because it actually turns heads.
Life is not perfect and I don’t expect Lola to be perfect, she is a dog with a wonderful personality.
Lola has come such a long way and so have we.
The bond between Lola and us and also with our family dog is amazing.
Lola has been with us now for 7 months and I have no regrets. Peter has helped us so much. Actually My only regret is that I wished I called bark busters sooner.
The tools Peter has taught us are life skills in which my children now have for when they have their own pets.
Thank you bark busters!
THANK YOU Peter!!!
Thank you. Chris it was a pleasure to help you and Lola. she is a lovely girl and your commitment to her training will help her in the future Thank you for letting me help you and using the barkbusters techniques to help Lola you can call me anytime through her life for the free on going support.

Peter is a God send:) We explained to him we have a new puppy and our older girl Penny Lane has an aggression problem towards the puppy. We could not leave the two alone together without the fear of the puppy getting attacked.
Peter explained very clearly what we need to do to help our situation. Within minutes of the training Peter had Penny Lane's behaviour under control, which is no under statement. We had been using a muzzle on her prior to using Bark Busters and I have NOT used it once since the day of the training. Which is such a relief.
Your ongoing commitment and following our training plan made all the difference
Thanks for allowing me to help you. Keep up the leadership.

Very good, the dogs responded well. It made sense to communicate with the dogs as Peter suggested. I was glad that it is not treat based, the dog responses to you not the treat.

Peter was very informative and helped us very much.

29th April 2019Peter Adamow dealt with:
Our first training session with Peter was very informative, constructive and successful. Peter had explained to us before our first session that our 1 y/o vizsla would need a fair bit of time to overcome his fear/anxiety in regards to visitors coming to the house however, within fifteen minutes of training we had control over his barking/fearful behaviour while Peter tried different strategies to test the training skills we had learnt. Following Peter's instructions and our daily training guide I am so confident that these issues will be solved.
Ochre is a fearful but beautiful Hungarian Vizslar who was accidentally over handled when young and caused fear aggression to strangers . After using the Bark Busters techniques Ochre became very focused on Hannah , his owner , and started to stop his fearful behaviour and barking. He settled and became relaxed.
Thank you for letting me help you with Ochre and I am looking forward to his and your progress on our follow up.

WOW! Peter was amazing! Thank you Peter for sharing with us the tools needed that will enable us to share a life full of joy and love with Apollo. We could see an improvement within the first few minutes of Peter being here. The jumping all over us has almost stopped and there has been an improvement on the leash pulling. The peace of mind knowing that we can call on you anytime we need help is a blessing. Looking forward to our catch up session. Thank you again Peter.
Thanks Maria, the pleasure was mine
Apollo is a beautiful but very energetic Dalmatian
Jumps, barks, pulls.
Now he is much better behaved , calmer and thanks to your commitment

Training was awesome. We are doing well. My girl continues to test me but responds when I use the 'magic' word. So I am happy.
Rosie is a barking Chihuahua that barked at everything, including people when riding on the basket of a Di's motorised scooter. After 1 hr of training Rosie had her first quiet ride around the neighbourhood.
keep up the work and looking forward to seeing you again at our next visit

As a first time dog owner, with really no clue about how to effectively train our dog, we were at our wit's end with our 7 month old rescue puppy, Chase. His continual jumping up, biting, barking and attention seeking behaviours were progressively getting worse and starting to show signs of aggression...oh and forget about leaving the house in a timely fashion! Chase would guard the door like nobody's business. We felt like prisoners in our own home! Sadly, we were losing love very quickly and wondering whether we had taken on more than we could handle.
Cue, Bark Busters!
We are happy to say that our recent training session with Peter couldn't have come at a more perfect time. We very quickly realised after hearing the valuable information about the way dogs communicate and behave, who was really running the show...Chase!
Peter was quick to identify the areas for improvement and guided us through the training techniques in an encouraging and guiding manner. At no point did we feel judged or made to feel as though we were "bad" dog owners. He taught us how to communicate with Chase in dog language and provided us with a training program and all training equipment to allow us to continue Chase's training on a daily basis.
We started to see changes in Chase's behaviour almost instantly and our confidence as dog owners grew simultaneously.
Thanks to Peter and the Bark Buster's training techniques, we now have a happier dog who know respects us as his pack leaders. We would highly recommend the home training service to others and feel that the monetary investment was completely worth it in order to create a calm, respectful and happy relationship with our dog.
Chase was a hyperactive young boy who would jump and mouth guests and owners continuously.
He responded to the Bark Busters techniques immediately and his true nature came out, a loving soft dog with a keen interest to follow his new rules and leaders of his family.
Thank you for your commitment to Chase.Your continued training and love for Chase will give him a happy , educated , safe home
Enjoy your new dog

Peter provided us with some excellent techniques to create a calmer environment for our rescue dog, Maisy. We adopted Maisy at age 11, and she is now nearly 13. While she has always been easily frightened, Peter has shown us how to demonstrate leadership with Maisy. This has made her more relaxed, reducing her nervousness, and importantly, her growling and aggression. We feel as though we are better able to understand and relate to Maisy. She’s seems like a happier and more settled dog. Thank you to Peter.
Thank you. Ashleigh it was a pleasure to help you with Maisy.
Maisy is a 13 year old rescue Jack Russell. That Ashleigh and her family saved only 2 years ago. She was aggressive to people and had bitten one that tried to pat her. Deep down, she was a very soft natured dog and glad that we could stop her growling and snapping at you and your guests. Keep up the work and be consistent to keep Maisy happy safe and healthy.

Peter was great the first time he met the boys. Ever since we have had the training the boys no longer fight, they occasionally play fight but not as bad as when we contacted Peter.
