Mark had a very relaxed, non-judgemental manner. He explained things well and made the lesson enjoyable and the instruction easy to follow. Our dog responded well to the training and there was a marked improvement after the lesson.We continue to see improvement as we carry out the ' homework' set by Mark.
This dog is a lovely Golden retriever who absolutely ruled the roost at home but out of home , jumping , rushing doors , pulling on lead especially around certain walking area which she also got extremely worried about.
Definitely a work in progress in the scared of walk areas but she'll come along as the programming is applied.

Monty responded to Mark's training techniques immediately! His behaviour has changed from constantly demanding play, barking and generally being hyperactive to being a much calmer dog. Monty now comes when we give the "Monty come" command and he has stopped barking at outside noises or passing traffic. He responds positively to the "Bah" sound - such an easy and effective tool to get his attention! Overall Monty now knows he is not "top dog" in the pack and he is a much happier dog. Thanks Mark for showing us the Bark Busters way!!
5th March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
We are so pleased with the progress Buster has made. The help Keiko has given all of us has been invaluable. He has gone from an anxious, bark mad dog who drove us crazy to much more a dog who knows his place in the pack. We are now better dog owners and know how to handle situations better since Keiko has shown us helpful tactics. We still have work to do but we are getting there!
Buster (4 year old Griffon) has come a long way. He was quite timid and nervous with visitors but now he is so much calmer and responding to the owners very well. Keep up the good work!

Mark explained why our problems were happening and how to easily ,calmly address and solve it.
They were like different dogs the moment the training started. Easy to follow instructions and techniques , no bribery with food and we regained control so quickly.
This bark Busters technique is the only one I've tried that actually worked with our 3 dogs and the whole pack at once.
I highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone struggling with their dogs behaviours
The 3 dogs in question are all very different in temperament and major barkers but also sibling rivalry aggression was starting to occur.
The owners responded with the techiques and saw results almost immediately as each dog was worked with.
Two recent revisits for minor adjusting and the house hold is very relaxed.
3rd March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko was very informative and helpful. She showed us strategies for controlling Rusty and our other dog too which we are using and they work very well.
I was very happy the way Rusty (7 years old Retradoodle) responded to the training. He was a little confused about his role in the pack. Be consistent and keep up the good work! :)

I got a lot of value out of the session with Mark from Bark Busters. It was reassuring to know that what I'd been doing so far with River was on the right track and to learn new methods and tricks to combat some specific behavioral issues. His insight into dog behavior and reasoning was enlightening.
Rivers a lovely dog but picked up abandoned on a river and in very poor state. Dumped very young with little or no mother dog influence.
Fear issues and anxiety are her problems especially of new people .
She's a quick learner and not dominant by nature so easy to please.
Awesome work already put in place by the owner has saved this dog. Well done.

Good info on being the pack leader, and behaviour correction/consequences for ignoring us. Good initial results seen, especially with lead pulling. Barking at somebody knocking on the door may still take some time. Mark was great, very approachable and we feel welcome to message/email him with any questions, and for further advice on any problems we might have. Good start with Barney, we saw results on the first day, which encourages us to keep working hard with him.
Barneys not a confident dog with other dogs , highly dog reactive and also in home protective , rehome with much education prior to the current owners.
He'll come along good but will be a work in progress especially with other dogs.
Great work guys.

25th February 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
The entire session that Keiko delivered was with clarity, and passion - thus, a productive learning and progress forward for not just our dog Chico, but also myself and my 21 year old son - as we are both responsible for Chico.
I felt that there was definitely hope and a future for Chico within our large whanau.
Chico (18 month old Pit Bull cross) was confused with his role in the pack. Once he understood the correct pecking order and what the owners want him to do he was so happy to do so. I was very pleased with the way Chico responded to training. Happy dog Happy family! Keep up the good work!
24th February 2018Mark Gall dealt with:
Really great, thanks Mark. We got a response straight away from Charlie, she was happy to sit outside and not bark and walked really well in the lead. I’ve got a bit of work to do to make sure she keeps it up now. Would definitely recommend.
Awesome dog , just needed speaking to in dog language.

Mark was great and very easy to learn from and talk to. Both my partner and I attempted completing various exercises with our Husky and with Marks guidance we achieved great results in our first session. We would both highly recommend Mark for an South Island based dog owners who are seeking help in relation to any concerns. Mark was able to finish our training session and leave us feeling happy moving forward with our weeks full of training and some new gear!
Huskies aren't easy but Eeve showed she can be trained , and the owners took on board the process and exercises to develop the focus. Great effort guys .
