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.

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!

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

Keiko explained many things I had not thought of. I have been delighted with the help Keiko gave Amber and myself and I will continue to follow the training information she gave us. What a lovely lady Keiko is - many, many thanks!
Amber (16 month old Cavoodle) was a little over protective of the owner. I was very please with the way she responded to the training.

8 months on and just had another check up and Mark has been fantastic. He always has ideas on how to improve her behaviour in various situations. Originally our dog Macey was very hyperactive and distracted and being part collie she also got quite nervous in certain situations. Mark helped us on our first session with pulling, jumping, barking and nervousness. She showed improvement on day one. She is now a calmer dog for majority of the time ,walks well on the lead. Still some work to do but all of Mark's advice has been awesome.
Macey was an extremely active dog, jumped , pulled , didn't focus, very fearful of new people and would nip out of fear defence.
I was called in when she was about 6-7 mths old and have had a couple of revisits since our first lesson to adjust and check on the owners progress.
She's now much more relaxed , reasonably confident and a responding well dog. Still a work in progress but great strides have already been made .
With consistent focus work and praise she'll be a well adjusted dog in the near future.
These owners have embraced our system to help an otherwise difficult dog through to a settled dog.
24th January 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko was very knowledgeable with training dogs in general. I was a bit skeptical at first it was going to work because we thought being an older dog (6 years old), he won't absorb anything that we teach him. Magnus was disobedient most times and would not come when called. Keiko as a visitor, I was extremely amazed when Magnus listened to her!! We have continuously been following her training aid and schedule and have been consistent. Today is Day 3 and I can almost say he is obedient!!! Thank you so much for helping us Keiko! You are amazing :)

Keiko was fantastic and gave us so much confidence when we were feeling quite anxious about taking Rosie into our home first day. After only 1 session with Keiko, Rosie does not bark or whine in the houses and 99% of the time will go outside to relieve herself. Roll on lesson 2!!!!!!!!!

Really enjoyed the training and seeing the progress that we made with Lottie. It was clear, concise and we were able to understand what we needed to do. Leaving 'homework' written down helped us do the training in the busy Christmas buildup.
