From the first telephone discussion I had with Keiko I was so impressed. Her advice seemed so logical. Her visit was eye opening. We soon realised how many changes we needed to make in how we were responding to and dealing with Laila. The techniques Keiko showed us and the advice she gave us has been invaluable. It has only been a week and we can see the changes in Laila's behaviour in just that short period of time. We are excited about what the results will be after another 4-5 weeks. We are so glad we contacted Bark Busters and met with Keiko. We have a beautiful rescue dog, that needs our guidance and we now have the techniques to help her to become the wonderful dog we know she can be. Thank you Keiko and Bark Busters.
Laila (7 month old Staffy cross) responded to the lesson very well. She was confused about the rules and boundaries. Once she understood, she was so eager to please you. Keep up the good work!

Any dog owner , I would recommend Bark Busters,
Absolutely changed, once we learned Indy's language, all the techniques made sense, Even the teenagers joined in.
Indy was a very reactive blue Heeler.
Major fence barking and pulling. Very reactive to other dogs.
Very clever at sucking the family into her way.

Keiko was fantastic and helped us within the first hour of the session. She explained everything clearly and was very encouraging. We've got a way to go with our cheeky little puppy but it's great to have a training plan and plenty of exercises to work on.
I was very happy with the way Loki (6 month old Border Terrier) responded to the lesson. Keep up the good work!
3rd April 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Training techniques were easy and worked instantly!
My dog responded straight away to stop barking and jumping.
Keiko also explained to us the things people often do to their dogs, that the dog actually doesn't like. We were also taught how to read a dogs body language to learn how they are feeling.
Absolutely brilliant! Thank you Keiko!
I am more than happy to help you with Nova (6 month old Staffy cross). She responded to the lesson very well! Keep up the good work!!

Mark turned up at the time and date specified, even though it was a Sunday and he spent just over four hours with us. He showed us some training techniques to help us train and better understand our dog.
Being a border collie Mac is very bright and very stubborn however Mark was able to show us how to make our dog realise he wasn't top dog or leader of our family pack it really was an education.
Of course we had no idea about any of this as Mac is our first dog and the problems we were experiencing in training and behaviour was actually our fault not the dog's. Mark was able to give us the information we needed to educate our dog properly and it only took a few hours before our dog started responding really well to the training .
In the intervening few weeks since Mark's first visit we have been using the training techniques with great success it's a lot like having a completely different dog, just one that looks the same.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark and Barkbusters to anybody that has a problem with their dog.
Mac was a dog with many vices. I was called in for resource guarding mainly but all the other in charge processes he was applying were creating a boss dog in not a good way. The dog had actually bitten the owner nastily to do with resource guarding ,many food but spaces etc were starting to apply as well.
It took a little out of the box thinking to get on top of his food issues but they did start to resolve with in the lesson.
These guys have really taken on board the process and applied it with results to show. fantastic work and see you next trip.

Really helpful training. It wasn't just training the dog, I was trained to communicate better with my dog. After 3 hours my dog already felt like a completely different dog. A lot less barking, walking her is enjoyable again because she doesn't need to dragged anymore and she listens better in general.
Leash and other training equipment that we received was also a great plus.
Awesome effort by these owners to follow and implement my instructions.
This dog has nipped at the gates and doors before all because Sif thought he was in charge.
Nice soft programming and passive skills has refocused Sif and the owners :-)
8th March 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko came round to help me with what I thought was my lovely, but untrainable dog. Even after a few minutes of activities I saw behaviour I have never seen from my dog before. Now after a few days of continued training I am certain I will have a lovely, well trained dog before we know it. Thanks Keiko!
I was very happy with the way Ruby (9 year old American Bulldog cross) responded to the training. You will definitely in a good place soon :) Keep up the good work!
7th March 2019Mark Gall dealt with:
Mark was most helpful, found issues we didn't know we had , separation anxiety , barking at neigbours, recall, pulling and attention seeking.
The dogs in question have good temperament but sort of run the show. Rusty a Briard has separation and barking issues , hes a slightly nervous temperament but with out strong leaders, so he thinks he has to do those jobs. His side kick Frankie is the play drive manipulator for attention.
They'll be a works in progress but showed good improvement on the day.
5th March 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
We noticed an improvement from the moment Keiko left with how Leah walked on the lead and also in most other things. Looking forward to the next stage with how she performs with other dogs.
Leah (4 year old Staffy cross) responded to the lesson very well. she needed clear rules, boundaries and who make them :) Keep up the good work!

We were very impressed with Bark Busters. Keiko was very patient and informative and helped us to understand our dog. We are amazed how quickly and easily our dog has responded to the training and already see a huge improvement to his behaviour and overall happiness in just a couple of days. Thank you Keiko!
Milo (Miniature Poodle 2 year old) responded really well. He needed clear rules and boundaries. Keep up the good work!
