Keiko is always really prompt and clear with communication. This was my third or fourth appointment for Grace and Keiko is very encouraging of upholding the lifetime support guarantee. I really appreciate this integrity.

Keiko is a very comfortable person to be around and makes it ok to be able to share all the ups and downs in the journey of dog ownership.

When I moved with my dog from Australia to NZ my dog became really anxious and Keiko has been a critical part of our journey in overcoming this anxiety.

Thank you Keiko! You are amazing!!!

Keiko was awesome as we have never owned a dog before. She was on hand immediately after Teddie joined us and has been supporting us the whole way through.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Teddie (10 week old Cavoodle) responding to the lessons very well. Very happy! Keep up the good work!

We were very pleased with the training! Keiko was so helpful and knowledgeable, she thoroughly answered all the questions we had. We learnt a lot about how to communicate better with our dog and are looking forward to training him (and ourselves) better!

Trainer note from Keiko:
Spencer (6 year old Staffy Bull Terrier cross). He barked, jumped up and pulled lead but he responded to the lesson very well. Keep up the good work!

Keiko came to my home to help and advise me with home training my dog. I found her method has had some amazing results already for which I am very grateful. I realize the importance of daily training is necessary. Jackie is responding very well in the home but I find when we go to the park he wants to get off the leash which of course he can't at this early stage but I will continue with the daily training and I can see improvement each day. My sincere thanks to Keiko

Trainer note from Keiko:
Jackie (8 year old Bichon cross) responded to the lesson very well. He barked at visitors and people walking past but he stopped immediately. He is so willing to please you once he knows what you want him to do. We still need to work on recall so off lead is too early to trust him. One step at a time, be patient and keep up the good work!

We were amazed at how simple the training is and how rapidly our dog Monty responded to Keiko and us. I had expected lots of rules but there are so few. What struck us was the need to understand how the dog thinks and how well Keiko explained this to us. Suddenly we could see that the way Monty was behaving was a reflection on what we were doing and with some easily understood adjustments we could completely change our relationship with our dog.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Monty (Miniature Fox Terrier cross 8 years old) responded to his first lesson very well. He was barking to get attention so once he understood there are rules, boundaries and manners he was very happy to follow them. Keep up the good work!

Keiko came to help our family learn about how to manage our new 7 mth old puppy, Roxy who we just recently got from the animal shelter. Roxy had a few wee naughty habits and really is just so excited at having a new home. Because we have different learning styles and a family of 4, I decided it was best to have a trainer come to the house to train our family so we were all on the same page.

I am so pleased we got Keiko to come to our house. Her manner was so warm and friendly and no question was too silly to ask.

She made us feel very happy about how to look after, care and provide consistent boundaries for Roxy. My 10 year old daughter responded really well and my husband can now speak 3 differing ways to command, manage poor behaviour and praise Roxy.

The training was individualised to our needs and also the needs of Roxy in her own environment. I would definitely recommend.

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Roxy (7 month old Huntaway cross) responded to her first lesson. Actually, you all did very well :) She just needed clear rules and boundaries. Keep up the good work!

My husband, daughter and I got Brian from the Humane Society in December last year. There were thoughts he had been chained and used to fight. We initially got some training which helped to sort a few things out but were still concerned about his aggression towards other dogs (he had attacked a puppy a few months back which left us very scared to take him in any close proximity to other dogs) I found Keiko on the website and decided to see if she could assist with this behaviour. Keiko's first lesson was extremely valuable - she is very knowledgeable and what she relayed to us made absolute sense. After the first visit, we felt elated as we can already see a big change in Brian's behaviour and have hope for the future. I cannot wait to see how we can assist him to change this behaviour with Keiko's help. Thanks so much Keiko. Regards Chantal Stewart and Tayo

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Brian (4.5 year old Boxer) responded to the lesson. He was a little confused about who to protect. It was great to see he became so relaxed when walking on the lead. Keep up the good work!

Keiko was amazing. She was methodical and calm and helped us to understand what we were doing wrong. Her training methods were simple and so effective. Our dogs have almost stopped their barking and are totally calm and obedient. They are so much fun and we are enjoying them without the stress of being out of control. Thank you Keiko.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Raiden (2.5 year old Shar Pei Staffy cross) and Ragar (7 year old Boxer) did very well with their first lesson. I was very happy with the way they responded. Great to hear they are behaving well. Keep up the good work!

I was really amazed by how fast Nova started responding to the training. By the end of the 1st session she had improved 90%.

It is now almost a week after our first session and she is doing unbelievably great.

Some of our biggest problem areas are already a thing of the past:

1: Jumping up and scratching the kids' faces.

2: Pulling uncontrollably on the lead.

3: Barking at everything that moves outside the yard.

4: Speeding out the second a door or gate opens (she now waits behind me)

5: Digging holes in the grass.

Keiko really knows what she's talking about.

I would (and have) recommend her to anyone!

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Nova (a year old Vizsla cross) responded to the lesson. She was so willing to learn to be a good girl :) Keep up the good work!!
