Mark carried out an excellent training session that far exceeded my expectations. His knowledge of dog behavior and his genuine nature made the lesson enjoyable as well as a productive step towards improving my dogs life as we well as my own.
Ned is a large and big softy malamute x Shepherd with separation anxiety issues, Ay one year old also all about himself. he responded well and the owner applied the techniques very well . Check up in a week or two to see how progress is going but even during the lesson the separation howling was significantly reduced. Great work Neddie boy you big cuddly bear.

I found the training extremely helpful. Marks quiet but strong nature put my wee dog sophie at ease, and made the training easy for me to understand.
All the written information left will help me continue the training and give me something to go back too if necessary
it is also very assuring to know that i can call Mark if i have any ongoing problems and that there is help for the lifetime of my dog should other issues arrise.
Great wee dog with some separation issues, solved quickly with simple easy techniques, Great work guys , keep it up.
8th July 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
A miracle happened in our house yesterday. Keiko very quickly showed us how to communicate with our dogs effectively, getting them to respond correctly and all in a couple of hours. They no longer jump up, bark randomly, pull on their leads or jump on the furniture. They are happier and now know who’s the boss. All achieved without treats - just simple techniques that work. If I hadn’t seen this for myself I would have been very cynical. Worth every cent! Thank you Keiko!
You are more than welcome! I was very happy with the way Duffy (8.5 year old Eg Cocker Spaniel) and Zico (6 year old Am Cocker Spaniel) responded to the lesson. They simply needed to understand that there are rules, boundaries and manners. Keep up the good work!

A simple and easy way to understand how a dog operates.
Stanley was focussing and listening to me with in a very short time and not pulling on the lead, not rushing the doors, sitting and waiting, he wasn't scared of the world ,was looking around ,checking things out which was not what he was like before.
He would react to anything and try to run away from it including the paddock which we run them in, I could even get him into that paddock at the first attempt to enjoy the space.
There was no pressure on the dog or myself which made it easier to get the message across.
We had thunderstorms that night and with the natural relaxants and Marks Bark Busters techniques Stanley was not worried about them. Still not enjoying them but much less stressed.
Stanley is a rehome dog for the owners but was extremely worried about life as he'd no training and never been out of his yard , possibly tied up most of the time.
A beautiful bull breed cross with a soft nature.
He really didn't know what to do.
Fantastic response and committed owners . Awesome work

We saw immediate improvement with our two dogs, Charley and Sputnik (both are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels). Mark helped us understand why our dogs were behaving the way they were, and helped us to become better pack leaders. His techniques were excellent, and he has been very responsive in terms of followup questions. Our dogs are so much better than they were before we met with Mark. I am thrilled with the service and cannot recommend it highly enough. I wish we had done this earlier!
Sputnik and Charley are great temperament dogs but barked and took on the visitors in a highly exciting way. The owners implemented our techniques and with in the lesson immediate improvement.
Great work guys.

Good explanation of how puppy thinks, and how we need to treat him to help him be a well behaved dog as he grows
Previous clients of a behaviour issue dog they decided to get us in right from the pick a puppy , which one , what temperament ,stage.
The 1st lesson of several as well as puppy school this pup is going to cared for with supervision by the teenage son, so implementing the importance on focus and training was important.
Great wee pup and he'll do well.
7th June 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
The training gave us some really useful tools but more importantly it gave us hope that we would be able to work with our dogs to solve the problems we were having.
Both Jazz (2 year old German Spitz) and Kiki (16 month old Staffy cross) were very territorial due to confusion. I was very pleased with the way they responded to the training. Keep up the good work!
5th June 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
The training was amazing, Keiko our trainer gave us a better understanding of our dogs and brilliant techniques. With just 5 minutes into the training our dogs responded to the techniques quickly much to our surprise. Just over 2 years we have raised our dogs with no training what so ever and we would of never thought we could accomplish what we did with only just one lesson. Our dogs are a lot more calmer, they don’t bark, have learned to sit and have stopped jumping up. Extremely happy with everything we have learned so far and we are definitely looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you again Keiko and the Bark Busters team.
I was very happy with the way Brutus (Pit Bull cross 3 year old) and Blackie (Boxer Rotty cross 3 year old) responded to the training. They needed clear rules and boundaries. Once they are clear both boys were more than happy to follow them. Good job! Keep up the good work!

I found the training very helpful. It was clear and concise and sensible. It definitely fitted what we needed. It was great to have some pre reading. And I am really pleased we have written notes as well as info sheets. I also really like the home training schedule I find this helpful as I like to have lists to follow. Having Mark come to our house was great.
Lovely dog but has been in charge for a little while ,a 6 mth Schnauzer and a new baby in the house changes the dynamic as well. She barked and pulled and rushed the door, also recall is an issue, even more so with a baby on board. She'll be a work in progress as most young dogs are but responded during the lesson. lead work she's a challenge with but has been let do her thing until now. Nice effort guys.

We really enjoyed our session with Keiko. She was able to positively alter some of the bad habitual behaviour we had inadvertently allowed to develop for our puppy. It was great to be given one-on-one training in our surroundings to help us to help our puppy in a positive, holistic manner.
I was very pleased the way Pebbles (5 months old Chihuahua Poodle cross) responded to the training. Pebbles is a very shy girl so take the steps slowly and be consistent. Keep up the good work!
