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!
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!

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!

Wonderful! Keiko explained her methods in a way that was easy to understand and achieve, we had a shared goal and I knew exactly what I needed to practice in order to improve my dog's behaviour. It was also a very quick fix where paying attention to the small things made the more challenging behaviours disappear.
Milo (Labrador 4 year old) responded to the training very well. He stopped barking at the fence very quickly. Milo and his mum are A+ students! Great Job :)
20th May 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko is so knowledgeable about "speaking dog" and she has taught me to communicate to Humphrey in a way that he will listen. He's able to walk on a lead now without pulling and now the main thing we are working on is his recall. Thank you so much, Keiko, I can see Humphrey doing much better each day.
I was very pleased the way Humphrey (18 month old Labradoodle) responded to the lesson. He did very well. He is still a young boy so be patient and keep up the good work! :)
20th May 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
The training has been very helpful. Storm has been responding well to my commands and listens to corrections. I feel as if my energetic dog has finally learned how to settle down and now listens and obeys my commands.
I was very happy with the progress Storm (14 month old Husky) made. Consistency is the key.
Keep up the good work!

We are very impressed with the knowledge and skills Keiko has taught us so far. She was great with Déja and the methods she taught us have already changed the behaviours we called Bark Busters for. I wish we had found Keiko and Bark Busters sooner - highly recommend!!!!
I was very pleased to see Deja (8 month old Staffy Chihuahua cross) responded to the lesson. She did very well. She is determine to please you. Keep up the good work! Deja can only get better with your patience and consistency :)
9th May 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko was very helpful. While it was a lot of information, it did give a clearer picture of my dogs behavior. I was especially surprised when I could touch Tomas' blanket the first time, he has always growled and been possessive of it.
Tomas' barking at the front door was also quickly remedied.
That is great! I was very please with the way Tomas (1 year old Shih Tzu x) responded to the lesson. He just wants to do the right thing but he was confused before the lesson. Happy dog, happy owner! Keep up the good work!
4th April 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Absolutely wonderful. Keiko is a great trainer and we have a different dog from the day she came to us. We will be following up the instructions.
Poppy (6 month old Labrador) is a very energetic young girl. I was very happy with the way she responded to the training. Keep up the good work!
