This has been great - we have really noticed such a difference in the behavior of both our dogs. It's really important to practice the techniques you learn with your dogs regularly to get the full benefit but when you do it really works.
Jazz (2 year old German Spitz) and Kiki (18 month old Staffy cross) came a long way. It is the result of all your work and your commitment to helping them behave better. Keep up the great work!!

Millie barked when somebody came to the door, she pulled on the lead when on a walk, jumped up on people and was constantly demanding attention. Mark showed us how to correct these behaviors, and almost instantly she became a different dog. She walks beside us now and is much more relaxed overall, I honestly thought I'd never see the day when she could walk nicely on and off a lead.
Millie is a super clever Border collie cross who thought she was in charge. By using the simple and gentle techniques , shes responded very well and the owners did a great job apply the dog speak rules.

Mark has helped us to better understand our dog Tyson's dominant behaviors. He was able to start us off with techniques to correct his behavior so we can have a more relaxed and obedient dog . He let us know that it would be baby steps with Tyson and we have the reassurance of ongoing support . Mark was professional and was able to relay a basic training programme that we are confident to follow. Already Tyson is becoming a lot more settled thanks Mark
Tyson is a 15mth old German shepherd un neutered male of direct German bloodline, extremely dominant and aggressive to visitors and other dogs ,animals. In the time the owners have had him they've not been able to get him to focus on commands even though they've owned several Shepherds before. His issues were aggression , barking , very physical and boisterious. Pulls. in fact isn't walk on the streets due to his nature.
Tyson took a bit to settle and was starting to respond to our passive use of training techniques. I'm excited to see progress in a couple of weeks. Great work guys.

It was quite a lot to learn, but the theories made sense and our dog responded incredibly quickly. They also have a lifetime support guarantee so if we continue to have difficulty/new issues pop up etc. we will always be able to nip it in the bud. We have asked the trainer, Keiko, questions already even though our training session was yesterday and she responded promptly and with a lot of detail. It really is true that it's more about training the humans than the dogs. Thank you for training us and committing to continue to train us!
I was very happy with the way Cali responded to the first lesson. She surprised her mum and dad how quickly she responded. Great job!! Our help is always available whenever you need :)

6th August 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
I don't know where to start, Keiko was amazing! Within our first session of 3 hours, we noticed the biggest change in our dog Blaze. Blaze would act quite aggressive towards strangers and visitors to our house, jump up at us, bark at other dogs and noises and run off if we left the ranch-slider open. Since Keiko, Blaze now does not respond aggressively to visitors at the door, he is not barking at strange noises or dogs, he will not jump up on us and we can know walk on our deck with the ranch-slider open and Blaze will not run outside. Within 24 hours Blaze is a different dog and more relaxed and I can only imagine what he will be like as weeks go by continuing training. Thank you Keiko!
Blaze (a year old Greyhound cross) responded to the lesson very well. He needed to understand who is in charge of his pack and there are rules and boundaries. I was very happy to see him relax once he understood that.:) Keep up the good work!

We loved seeing Keiko again and learning how to speak dog again it’s certainly working for us all. We are all really enjoying our walks again now-Sharyn
Was great to see you again since April 2014 :) Our Life Time Support works when you need us any time. Great to see Ollie (Bichon cross, 7 years old) responded immediately. Great student!!

Mark was great really easy to understand all information about puppy management & we as a family look forward to implementing the techniques we are learning with Rizzo
Brand new little puppy and the clients did their research before purchasing , getting training when it arrives to be a head of the game before problems occur.
Great wee puppy with an exploring attitude.
Looking forward to next session in a couple of weeks

31st July 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Ella's inside behaviour with us was completely different to her outside behaviour to others. Our sweet 1yr old Lab X had a bark that was quite scary for the people walking past our gate. Keiko saw this and explained everything about what Ella was thinking. Within 1hr Ella changed. This was not just training for Ella but for us as well. Keiko also helped Ella with her lead walking and focus whilst walking. Gone is the pulling and going towards all she sees. The things we learned are now in practice. Keiko helped us to understand Ella and to speak dog. We are so happy with this change and will recommend Keiko to others who need a hand with their furry member of their family.
I was very pleased with the way Ella (a year old Lab cross) responded to the lesson. She is still a young girl, so keep up the good work! She can only get better with your help :)

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.
