What our customers have to say about Bark Busters

“Had an incredible first virtual training session with Mark! Porter (5 month old golden retriever) responded very well to the advice and tips given, and we can’t wait to see how he progesses further! Thanks Mark!”

“Thank you Keiko for reminding my who is the “pack leader” in my house. Your knowledge and sincerity in helping with Lockie has been a fantastic support to date. We had our first “post lock down” virtual lesson which worked incredibly well and just though new techniques, and reminding me of the older ones has been working extremely well so far. Even the training walk this morning went well and I’m not sure who was more exhausted!!”

“It was so good to meet Keiko for our first session, We met via Zoom as we are all in lockdown, it was almost as good as having Keiko in the same room. We fully understood her and the response from our puppy Asha was amazing. We have a much calmer puppy now and have some great tools to help manage her.”

“”The change in Bowsers behaviour was unbelievable, we tried the techniques after Mark had gone and he had improved so much in his recall and obedience. Very pleased with the whole lesson and with Mark””

“Amazing, already recommended to friends this morning. Took Banksy to the park today different dog, did not run off at all when off his lead and other dogs in the park! Played hide and seek and he loved it. Practiced all the techniques we learnt and have one very happy dog and family. Banksy now fast asleep, happy house.”

“Mark was great at getting us on the right track with Harley. He’s already responding well to being outside, left alone and travelling in the car. He is still a puppy and a work-in-progress. Looking forward to working with Mark to give us a happy home.”

Melissa I - Christchurch, South Island, ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“We really enjoyed our first lesson with Keiko at our home, which was so important as this is where most of our dog’s behaviour issues are. She provided us with very helpful information on being able to understand how to better communicate with our dogs and identified straight away what areas we needed to address. Within the first session we noticed a massive improvement with their behaviours and she helped us with going through the training so we could continue it on our own at home. It does take persistence, patience, and perseverance! But we are already noticing improvements in our dogs behaviours (within 1 week) as long as we are consistent with the training practices and communication Keiko has shown us. Very happy so far and looking forward to continuing improvements with our dogs!”

Johanna S - Auckland/Greenhithe, North Island, ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“Keiko has an amazing way with dogs and had our puppy under control immediately! She provided good explanations of how puppies think and respond, and how to best communicate with them. The explanations were well structured and she explained the concepts in a simple and effective manner. We have made significant progress with our puppy who loved to jump and chew a lot. We feel that Bark Busters have provided us with a great foundation of training and it’s great knowing we have the support of Bark Busters as our puppy grows up.”

“After searching for an in-home dog trainer for quite some time, Mark was the only one that made the effort to call/text/email back quickly and offer advice BEFORE we set up the 1st appointment. (Alot didn’t bother to reply at all or would refer us onto others due to my Pup’s breed). Very personable and really knows his stuff! Peaches responded well to the training and we’ve put things into action already. I’ve noticed a huge change in not only her, but the way we interact as well after only one session. She was quite fearful of walking down our stairs & leaving the property, after a few MINUTES, she was able to do this – minus the fear. He gave us alot of great information and it’s the first time in my life I’m looking forward to doing homework lol. Mark is worth every penny and then some! I can’t speak highly enough of him. I’d 100% recommend to anybody looking for an in home dog trainer. :)”

Ebony H., - Wellington, North Island, ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“I found the first session extremely informative and helpful. I have since done regular training with Toby (leash, walking through doors, recall etc). I am amazed by the progress within such a short amount of time, The videos are very helpful to remember some details provided in the training too.”

Ela H - PARAU, North Island, ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“Thank you so much Mark what a difference a couple hours training has done. I have a happy settled dog and I know now my life is going to so much easier now that I have learnt the skills to manage my lovely Ollie. Thanks so much”

Kathy C., - Christchurch, South Island., ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“We were very pleased with Keiko’s ways of teaching us the psychology of dogs and then applying it to real situations like food manners and basic commands. We look forward to more sessions with Keiko!”
