1st November 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
We have seen an instant improvement in our two dogs Arlo, a 2.5 year old staffy x whippet and Leela, a 1.5 year old kelpie x dachshund. Which has also been acknowledged by our friends also. The training is easy to understand and implement, putting us back in control and at the top of the pecking order. We addressed jumping, barking, anxiety, recall, walking on the lead and more in our initial session. Plus we now know m that taking control of these will also lead to less destruction in our home long term and happier, easy going dogs that we can take out in public without concern. Emma is thorough, understanding and non-judgemental. We didn’t feel stupid asking questions or embarrassed to share our concerns with our dogs. I’m looking forward to continuing working with Emma to constantly develop our skills and knowledge. Most of all, I’m looking forward to having two well behaved dogs!
Thanks Allana, you guys did a great job during our first session, and I'm looking forward to my next visit to see the even more improved Arlo & Leela. 😁

31st October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
I'm very pleases with the training that I and Monty have received so far. Even now, i can already see a bit of a change in Monty.
Monty is a 14 month old Red Heeler, who has unfortunately been the victim of a few dogs attacks, causing him to be reactive towards other dogs.
His mum called Bark Busters for help.
During our first session we worked on his behaviour around the house, walking nicely on the lead, and getting his focus whilst passing other dogs.
Monty still has a way to go, but with their training plan in place he will continue to improve.
Looking forward to our next session, and doing more work with Monty around other dogs.

Great service and worth the initial investment.
I really appreciate Emma's approach to dog training and feel comfortable implementing it. I have previously worked with a trainer who's approach whilst effective was too aggressive for me to maintain at home.
Looking forward to Tikaani's progress and having a better in home dynamic for my pooches!
Tikaani, an 18 month old Malamute, joined his family about 3 months ago.
He had been causing trouble with barking, pulling on the lead, being overly excited when he saw people or dogs & not listening to his owners.
His mum did a great job during our first speak dog session, and Tikaani's behaviour improved very quickly.
Looking forward to seeing this big boy again at our next session.

25th October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
After just one session with Emma I learnt how to reestablish myself as the leader of the pack and how to engage Milo so she listens to me, well most of the time! I contacted Emma as I was struggling with Milo not getting along with the family cats, barking, not coming when called, jumping and doing things on her terms. After our first session I have seen a change in Milo, she is less anxious and is engaging with me more making it easier for me to stop her when barking. We still have some work to do, well more me trying to find my inner toughness so she can see me as the boss!!
Thanks Emma for being patient, knowledgeable, supportive and a pleasure to work with.
Thanks Nicola, you are doing really well at becoming a leader for Milo, the gorgeous 2½ year old American Staffy X, so that she can take a step back & relax.

23rd October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
Our dog has gone from crazy, jumping, zooming and general bad behaviour, to a sweet mild mannered, and attentive girl. She still has a way to go (she is still very stubborn :P) but with Emma's training she is doing absoloutley fantastic! 100% recommend. My fave thing about BB is that it's not a one off session, its a life-time availability of training.
Thanks Jennifer :)
Vera, is an 8 month old Pit Bull, who was causing mischief. :)
She was barking for attention, jumping, mouthing, chewing, destructive, pulled like a steam train on the lead, and generally running riot.
Her family did an awesome job during their first #speakdog session & with #barkbusters #lifetimesupport Vera will grow into a well mannered young lady.

21st October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
Emma was very helpful, easy to get along with and very good at being a trainer.
Roxy is a 10 week old Blue Staffy who's into the usual puppy mischief of barking, jumping and biting. Her family also needed help with toilet training, and Roxy had shown a bit of aggression too.
Her family did a great job during their first speak dog session, and I'm looking forward to seeing them all again soon. :)

12th October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
The training was perfect! Emma is very helpful and takes the time to make sure that I fully understand what and how things need to be done and why they need to be done, as I am a bit of a softy because I love my pup so much (too much) I am so grateful that we are fortunate enough to have found Bark Busters, we were so lost before, but now we have our 'new pup'. A much more relaxed, less anxious pup after only 3 weeks, we have a much happier household! Thank you so much Emma!
Thanks Natasha :)
When I first met Charlie, the 2 year old Shar Pei X, she was an extremely anxious girl.
She would bark at people coming into the house then run and hide whilst still barking, pull on the lead, was dog reactive, very easily distracted and would obsessively lick her owners.
Her family have done an awesome job with their training, and now everyone is much more relaxed.
Looking forward to seeing you guys again soon. :)

7th October 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
Emma has been very patient with our little monsters.
She has been very thorough in educating my partner & I.
She has helped us to understand areas in our lives that we need to make compromises. However, in other situations where we cannot make a compromise, she has been very flexible and has provided alternative methods.
Rocky & Roma are starting to make good progress and we are confident with Emma's guidance that we will achieve the goals we have set.
Thanks Dhanu 😊
Rocky, a 2 year old Toy Poodle x Spaniel, and Roma, an 18 month old Miniature Schnauzer x Spaniel, were definitely ruling their house.
They were causing trouble with:
🐾 Rushing through doors
🐾 Pulling on the lead
🐾 Hyperactive Behaviour
🐾 Obsessive Licking
🐾 Dog Reactivity
🐾 Not listening to their owners
Now with their training plan in place, Rocky & Roma's family are on track to a more relaxed and peaceful household.
Keep up the great works guys. 😊

Emma had Pip under her control within minutes!!!! She was firm but fair with a calming influence with dog and owner!!😂
Thanks heaps Emma !! Highly recommended!!
Pip, the Pomeranian x Poodle, joined Bark Busters back in 2012.
He had recently been causing trouble with barking, jumping, pulling on the lead, rushing to the front door and not listening to his family.
Thanks to our life of the dog support we were back to help.
Looking forward to seeing Pip at our park sessions :)

29th September 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
Having had Bark Busters train our Border Collie 7 years ago with huge success, we were thrilled to have Emma come and help us get on track with our dogs today.
Emma is professional, informative, honest and a phenomenal educator.
Do not look any further for fast and ongoing results. A bonus being Emma having leads and collars and other accessories on hand for purchase. Very handy.
An investment that is affordable with ongoing support.
Thank you so much Emma.
Thanks Billie :)
Indie, a one year old Border Collie, and Missy, a 3 year old Labrador, were the trouble makers of the house. Between them their list of issues included:
🐾 Attention Seeking
🐾 Running out the front door
🐾 Pulling on the lead
🐾 Jealous Behaviour
🐾 Not coming when called
Their family did an awesome job during our first session and we saw instant transformations in Indie's & Missy's behaviour.
Keep up the great work & I'll be back to see you again soon. :)
