We have just had our second session with Emma this morning, absolutely amazing trainer!
We have done all the exercises she taught us with our dog and the improvement in our gorgeous girl is absolutely the best thing to see! Can't recommend Emma and Bark Busters training enough.. my Mum & Sister have just signed their dogs up now also!!
Honey, a 4 year old Staffy girl, was barking at passersby, pulled on the lead, was aggressive towards other dogs, jumped on people, and generally did whatever she wanted.
Her family have done a great job sticking to their training plan, and the results are clear for everyone to see in a much more relaxed, calm & happier Honey.
Keep up the great work guys.

We have taken so much away from the training with Emma.
She was so patient with everything and relayed the training techniques in a very clear way. We couldn't recommend Emma enough to other people who may be experiencing any sort of behavioural issue with their dog.
Blaze, a 2 year old Border Collie, was adopted by his lovely family in September 2017.
Blaze is a beautiful dog, but had been causing trouble for his family.
When they took him out he would bark at passing people, dogs, cars, bikes, scooters etc. He had started to lunge at people and cyclists, and jumped at some kids. He pulled like a steam-train on the lead, and had no door manners.
His family did an AWESOME job at learning how to speak dog, and we saw immediate changes in Blaze's behaviour.
Keep up the great work guys. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Could not recommend Bark Busters and the trainer Emma enough!
We have just had our second training session and had such a wonderful experience. Chewie improves more and more everyday with his training and I am so thankful. We are his second owners and being a three year old lab with little training he was getting quite a handful to take on walks as he would not respond to us at all with all the distractions around. Now, on only his second session, he is listening, following instructions like a pro and its all thanks to Emma's knowledge and guidance.
Chewie, a 3 year old Golden Labrador is very lucky to have found such a loving home. His mum has done a great job with his training so far and we are looking forward to continued improvements.

12th February 2018Emma Reeves dealt with:
Emma was very confident and certain in her training techniques which assisted in my learning and seeing my dog settle so quickly.
Pink, a 5.5 month old blue heeler girl, was jumping, nipping, pulling on the leash, and generally not listening to her mum.
Her mum did an awesome job at learning how to speak dog and we saw changes in Pink's behaviour straight away.

Emma was so great at our first session with Lilly, I have already seen a huge improvement in her and it has only been one session! Looking forward to the next session.
Lilly, a gorgeous 15 week old Maltese x Shih Tzu, was jumping, barking, toileting in the house & pulling on the lead. Her family did a great job learning how to speak dog, and I'm looking forward to continued progress as this little pup grows up.

Emma was fantastic.
Not only directed us in changing Harley's bad habits but we saw an immediate change.
Emma was polite and Sarah and I have learnt so much in 1 day.
Look forward to further consultations.
Harley, a 6 month old Red Cloud Kelpie, is an absolute gem.
She is a gorgeous girl, who just needed to realise that it's mum & dad's house, not hers.
We made fantastic progress in her first session, and she joined us at the park session this week where she did great work.
Keep up the good work guys, looking forward to seeing you soon.

Very good, Emma gave us an insight of how to train a dog with absolutely no idea of any basic commands.
Cass, a 9 year old Kelpie x, was rescued recently.
Her family have provided her with a loving home, and now with Bark Busters training can also provide strong consistent leadership.

Emma is an excellent trainer. I am amazed at how effective her training is. She is amazeballs. She listens to you and helps with whatever you feel is an issue. Her sense of humour helps to make the training fun. She is a pocket rocket. Excellent Beautiful effective.
Abishai, a gorgeous 14 week old Staffy x Rhodesian ridgeback x Shar Pei, has found himself a great home.
We worked on all the puppy basics, mouthing, jumping, walking on the lead and recall; plus lots of work on swimming pool safety. His mum did a great job at learning to speak dog.
Keep up the good work.

17th December 2017Emma Reeves dealt with:
At first I was apprehensive as to whether or not Bark Busters would be able to help my two dogs. Leonidas my British bulldog would not listen to any of my commands, pull on the lead, jump on visitors, was aggressive towards men, jumped all over other dogs and bark crazily at them, and had attempted to attack his bother (Harley) over food.
Harley is a Staffy and had been viciously abused when he was younger and has severe anxiety, he will constantly run laps in our back yard to the point of losing 5kg in two months.
After our first session with Emma we started training every day without fail.
Almost instantly my dogs were listening to me which encouraged me to believe I did not have an issue with my dogs behaviours but with the lack of communication between us.
My dogs will, without fail, listen to every command I give within the confines of our home.
Harley stopped running laps and his separation anxiety has improved greatly and Leonidas no longer attempts to push the boundaries.
The next challenge was getting Leonidas to interact with other dogs in a calm manner. Emma suggested she bring her beautiful dog Sash over and work through some exercises. Instantly my heart sank and thought of how badly Leonidas may behave. However, for the first time ever, we walked side by side both dogs well behaved and in control.
I never thought this day would come and truly thought I would have to walk him early in the morning or late at night in the hopes of never seeing another dog again.
Things have drastically changed and I can see my dogs are much happier for it!
I highly recommend Bark Busters! Not only did Emma help me communicate effectively with my dogs but she has also given me the confidence to be a pack leader.
Please don’t allow your self to feel as if you have no hope and you’re at the end of your rope because Bark Busters can help!!
Leo & Harley's owners were really committed to making a change with their dogs, and their efforts have clearly paid off. Both dogs are much calmer and happier for having clear leadership, and I am looking forward to seeing you guys at our park sessions.
Keep up the great work.

Emma is great! She has a wealth of knowledge and is so patient with not only our dog but with us!
Delta, a 2 year old Blue Heeler x Bull Arab, only joined her new family a few months ago.
The main points we worked on were getting Delta to focus on her family, and walking nicely on the lead.
Great start guys.
