Keiko Ruwhiu has training my dog Louie since 16 Sep 2017. She is a wonderful trainer. She is a very patient and very professional trainer. After first lesson, my dog Louie made big change. His bad behaviors got better, less barking when he saw other dogs and he can walk by the owner very well. We are so happy with the results after training with Keiko. We strongly recommend Keiko that she is the best trainer that I met. Thanks for working hard with us and giving professional job.
Louie (9 year old German Shepherd) needed clear leadership. He responded to the training really well. I am very happy with his progress and I can see he became much happier when the owners took leadership. Well done all and keep up the good work!

It was superb! We first wanted our dog, Baron not to bark but Keiko taught us a lot of other things too. Her explanation was so useful and easy to understand. I know that to train a dog, the owners also need to learn and with Keiko, me and my husband could learn really important things! I was so amazed how she organised and spent over 3 hours for us. Also I was so surprised Baron made remarkable progress during the session. I know to keep him this way, we need to train him everyday consistently but I’m so positive about it. Because I could see Keiko really loved dogs and cared about us which is vitally important so we can trust her with further training. I’m 100% happy with her and the system of Bark Busters!
I was very pleased the way Baron (2 year old Pomeranian) responded to the training. He thought he had to bark at the door to protect his territory. But once he understood it was not his job he was happy to let it go. But you are dealing with his habit, so you need to be consistent and patient. Keep up the good work!

Very productive first session, saw huge results in the first few tips Mark gave is which we added to through out the session. Mark showed his knowledge of handling dogs with very different temperaments in the sense that we have a very hypo colly huntaway x and a very mellow huntaway. Mark explained how we should use slightly different voice tones to achieve results with them. All his explanations were thorough but not to technical so it was easy to take in and understand.
The training tools provided were easy to use and used thoroughly throughout the training session
These dogs were creating a sibling rivalry situation that had already resulted in some scuffles as the old guy didn't want the new guy to take top position.
Both dogs lead a pretty much off lead life in a lifestyle lock residents with good obedience but not great focus at times . Lots of tweaking and these dogs will be awesome , credit to the owners and the work they're now applying.

We adopted our beautiful Molly from the pound. There was no information on her background and just a guess of her age between 10-12 months. Molly was a real handful on the lead pulling so hard you thought your arm might rip out of its socket. After 1 session with Keiko she was like a different dog, it was like who is this imposter on the end of my lead. She is learning everyday and will now also sit and stay while food is being thrown around her. Keiko has taught me so much about handling my fur baby I still have much to learn, thank you.
Molly (1 year old Kelpie cross) responded to the training really well. She really wants to do the right thing and please the owner. The owner just had to learn to communicate in the way Molly understands. Very please with the progress. Keep up the good work!

What a difference now from when Mark arrived, we can see that Jasper is starting to take it all in. Marks done all the ground work, so it's up to us to keep the training up. that's 10 to 15 minutes a day. When Mark explains what to do, he makes it easy to understand. My husband and myself are very happy with Barkbusters service. We would recommend Mark to anyone who is want to get their dog under control.
I first met jasper a couple of months ago and the first lesson was hard work, not in his own environment and extremely busy Xmas atmosphere.
A pushy but loveable albeit nervous wee chap.
Responded well during the lesson and the owners certainly will do their best to keep up the good work already achieved. barking , jumping , recall and pulling all problems on the mend.

We can't thank Keiko enough for the work she did with us and helping us train our dog Louie. Louie went from an anxious yappy dog to a settled best friend. Visitors today and no barking! Used to bark at pet bird, now stopped! She's a dog whisperer but the best part is she teaches you how to be a confident leader for your dog.
Louie (2 year old, Shih Tzu Bichon cross) responded to the training very well. He really wants to please the owners and do the right thing. as long as you communicate to him in the way he understands and right timing, he can only get better. Keep up the good work!

Mark was amazing to work with. I came away from the lesson feeling so much more confident with what I needed to be doing. He offered a huge amount of advice and OB responded very well to the training. We have had success within our first week, looking forward to what is to come after some time.
OB is a lovely but stubborn French Bulldog. At 8mths thought he was the main man. barking and Separation anxiety issues as well as marking.
Jaime applied as I had instructed and Ob responded well and even didn't go nuts at the other dogs we went past.
Awesome work guys.

The training was very helpful and Tej is progressing nicely.
Tej (7 month old Bichon cross) is doing really well. Keep up the good work!

Thank you Kekio! We are enjoying a quieter and very relaxed dog in our home, now that we understand how to communicate with Daisy and are not confused on what actions to take. Your time with us on the first visit made immediate impact to her behaviour and your on going support has made the simple steps easier to remember.
Daisy (18 month old Cavoodle) responded to the training very well. Keep up the good work!
2nd February 2018Mark Gall dealt with:
I liked Mark, he was clear with his communications and thorough when finding out our issues with our dog. He instructed how to achieve results but let us do the work. His instructions were simple enough to follow and play out. The information he left behind were useful as reminders on how to do things. He gave us clear home work to do. The methods he has taught seem to be making a difference already. Since the first lesson, Mark has met up with us in a situation where my dog has real problems coping. He helped with the dogs behaviour without taking over, but resulting in significant improvements.
This dog was found at 4 weeks of age and then rehomed at about 4months, so lots of missed education and bonding from Mother dog.
She's highly dog aggressive and reactive so will be a work in progress but is already showing vast improvement in a short space of time. Great commitment by the owner to get on top and have a socially acceptable dog. great work Guys
