13th March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
It is an amazing experience. We have had dogs before for many years. This is the first time we had a German Shepard - She is unique.
We have had training with German Shepard club and some personal trainers, and were never satisfied.
Then comes Keiko with her unique technique and training to us - we are blown away (also Arya...)
We are happy all are going well with us consequent to this training.
Arya (German Shepherd 2 years old) had come a long way. She stopped barking and jumping up when visitors arrive and come when she is called. The owners are very determine to help her to behave better and doing a great work! Happy dog = Happy family. Keep up the good work!
11th March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Balto has come a long way since we called Keiko in she has helped us a great deal teaching us the correct way to teach Balto. We still have a few more things to practice but we are going to get there with Keiko's help
Yes, Balto (German Shepherd 10 months old) has come a long way. He was quite confused of the rules and boundaries. Once you set them clear he was happy to follow. I am very pleased with his progress. Keep up the good work!

Through a very simple approach, all fell in to place, both for us and for Izzy.
Izzy (10 month old Pit Bull cross) is such a sweet girl but can be stubborn. She was pulling lead when walking and only came when she wanted to. Izzy responded to the training very well. Keep up the good work!

8th March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Excellent advice and support. Everything Keiko suggested worked and is easy to follow.
Cooper (7 month old Labrador Staffy cross) was a shy puppy when he joined Bark Busters three months ago. But all the time and effort the owners put in he is much more confident and behaving so much better. I was very please to see his progress but he is still a young dog so keep up the good work!

5th March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
We are so pleased with the progress Buster has made. The help Keiko has given all of us has been invaluable. He has gone from an anxious, bark mad dog who drove us crazy to much more a dog who knows his place in the pack. We are now better dog owners and know how to handle situations better since Keiko has shown us helpful tactics. We still have work to do but we are getting there!
Buster (4 year old Griffon) has come a long way. He was quite timid and nervous with visitors but now he is so much calmer and responding to the owners very well. Keep up the good work!
3rd March 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko was very informative and helpful. She showed us strategies for controlling Rusty and our other dog too which we are using and they work very well.
I was very happy the way Rusty (7 years old Retradoodle) responded to the training. He was a little confused about his role in the pack. Be consistent and keep up the good work! :)
25th February 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
The entire session that Keiko delivered was with clarity, and passion - thus, a productive learning and progress forward for not just our dog Chico, but also myself and my 21 year old son - as we are both responsible for Chico.
I felt that there was definitely hope and a future for Chico within our large whanau.
Chico (18 month old Pit Bull cross) was confused with his role in the pack. Once he understood the correct pecking order and what the owners want him to do he was so happy to do so. I was very pleased with the way Chico responded to training. Happy dog Happy family! Keep up the good work!

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!
Mission Bay, Auckland
22nd February 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
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!

15th February 2018Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
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!
