Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

We were very pleased with how the training session went and can already see some good progress in Rick. We were able to understand better how Rick thinks and communicates, and then to recognise how to use this to provide boundaries and rules for him.

Both my husband and I thought our training was remarkably effective in a short period of time, and provided some new and surprising advice in the way we approach our dogs. Within a couple of days, both dogs were far more relaxed and responsive, and we shall definitely continue to work on the many training techniques shown us by Keiko - as they obviously work!

Keiko has opened up another set of eyes in terms of dog behaviour. We have another older dog and you never stop learning about how best to train your pets to get the best out of them.

Keiko is extremely patient with both Bear and us (lol), makes herself available and very helpful.

The reason we engaged her was Bear had been really naughty and had to front up to court. Keiko upon request and without any hesitation came along to support us in court which we thought was amazing and well and truly beyond the call of duty! Before the appearing in court she had provided full reports for Bear.

We are really happy with the progress Bear is making, he is such a different dog to before we met Keiko. It is work in progress and the great thing about Bark Busters is the support is for life.

Thank you so much Keiko and we look forward to continuing the journey with you!!

Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with: Pulling on the Lead Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called

Keiko was amazing with Tyson from the moment she stepped in our front door.

Straight away we could see Tyson was a bit different – he respected Keiko and there was an understanding between them when she was engaging with him.

She methodically went through the Bark Busters program on the ipad explaining everything and answering all our questions.

Keiko was clear and precise around how the pack hierarchy works and the importance for us to take charge and be the leader – this was really insightful and started us understanding and thinking about our relationship with Tyson in a bigger, more holistic way.

After already trying two other dog trainers, we were starting to think maybe Tyson would always act in the way he was behaving - we hadn’t seen any improvement.

Keiko explained a lot of the training is around how we are as owners. One of the big things we wanted was to be able to take Tyson for a walk on lead and not have him pulling and yanking us the whole way. He's a big boy - 45kgs.

After learning about the "bah" noise and the proper way to lead, it was pretty much instant and we were shocked - total night and day. He walked along side me with a slack j-shaped lead and has very rarely pulled ahead again.

We are still working on this when other dogs are around, but our foundation is getting stronger and stronger.

Tyson is more attentive to us and making improvements all the time.

Kieko has been a life-saver as we thought the way Tyson was it – she’s made a huge difference in our world and the way we interact with him – and I know he’s happier as well.

Would thoroughly recommend Keiko.

Very comprehensive and Keiko shows a very good understanding of the methods and the reasons behind them.

Trainer note from Keiko:
I am glad the lesson helped the owner to help Beaudy (Golden Retriever 4 month old) to glow up to be a well behaved dog. He did very well. But he is still a young puppy so be patient and be consistent!

The training is very professional and found something that are in urgent need of correction such as tail chasing.

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Rex (German Shepherd 3 year old) responded to the training. Although the owner didn't think his tail chasing behaviour was not a problem but had to be addressed. He did very well. Keep up the good work!

Bark Busters was the first training method that worked immediately with Penny when she was younger. Keiko has an absolutely fantastic manner and explains everything in such a simple way that just makes sense!

Every time she leaves I am filled with confidence that I am 100% capable of my dogs listening to me (respecting me!).

When we got our second dog not long ago the knowledge I gained from Keiko in how to deal with certain behaviours has been extremely valuable.

I think the service is one of a kind and can't recommend it enough to others out there.

THANK YOU!

Trainer note from Keiko:
I am more than happy to help you any time! The dogs are doing really well. Keep up the good work! :)

It was wonderful! We were so surprised to see Kona respond immediately to Keiko's methods. WOW! Kona has never been so relaxed and quiet. It was a joy to see her like that and really gave us hope for success with her!

Trainer note from Keiko:
Kona (8 month old Labrador) responded to the training really well. I was very pleased. But she is still a young girl, keep up the good work!

Keiko took the time to get to know our dogs, she patiently watched all the triggers, and observed the behaviour of both ourselves and the dogs. She provided insight into Busby's behaviour that we were totally oblivious to prior to Keiko's visit. She gave us tools and techniques in a very simple manner to help us form a wonderful, lifelong bond with Busby in a non-coercive manner, without the use of treats or bribery. We can't thank you enough Keiko - WE are fully committed to the BarkBusters way - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Already we have a pack of Newfoundlands that has started listening and responding to us, like never before.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Great to hear they are doing well. I was very pleased with the way they responded to the training. Keep up the good work! :)
