My training with Emma was wonderful. Within a couple of days I have noticed a massive difference in Frankie’s behaviour and have been really surprised with how quickly she has responded to all the small changes Emma has given us in the way we communicate with each other. I am already looking forward to being able to take my dog out and about again without feeling anxious about her behaviour.
Gorgeous Frankie, the 4 year old Cattle dog X, had a list of bad habits including:
- Pulling on the lead
- Dog reactivity
- Not coming when called
- Not giving toys
- Separation Anxiety
Frankie's mum did an awesome job during their first speak dog session and we saw immediate improvements in Frankie's behaviour. With her mum's consistent leadership Frankie will be able to relax and become a much calmer dog.
Looking to checking up on progress soon. :)

Emma is amazing, she has changed our lives! I went from refusing to leave the house with my dog because he was uncontrollable, unpredictable and extremely dog reactive, to being able to confidently handle him in any situation! He is a completely different dog now and continues to improve every day! He has even made some new friends at the group training sessions 😊 I honestly recommend Emma to everyone! Couldn’t be happier!
Thanks Jayme 😊
3 year old Staffy Boss, joined Bark Busters back in 2016, and thanks to his mum's consistency and Bark Busters life of the dog support, we have worked together to get Boss to the dog he is today.

Training was very effective and has helped to improve Lulu's behaviour.
Lulu the 4 year old Staffy, is a rescue dog who joined her family a few years ago.
Her behaviour wasn't great, so her mum called us for help.
During their first session we covered jumping, barking, walking on the lead, behaviour around the doors, separation anxiety, sit and stay, and getting Lulu to wait on her bed.
Her mum did a fantastic job & we saw immediate improvements in Lulu's behaviour.
Looking forward to our next session and seeing this girl continue to improve.

Very happy, good results & really easy.
Bullet is a 9 month old Rottweiler who thought he was in charge of the house! He was keeping everyone in check by barging through doors, barking, jumping, scratching & crying if shut out or in another room, humping, digging, pulling washing off the line & not listening to his owners.
His dad did a fantastic job during their first speak dog session and we saw a massive turn around in Bullet's behaviour within 2 hours!
Keep up the great work guys & I will be back to see you soon.

Reggi had his first lesson with Emma this week and is coming in leaps and bounds since. The techniques Emma uses in training are amazing. Reggi is a 9 week old staffy x boxer puppy who was already developing some naughty habits, he is now picking up on the commands very quickly. He’s already learning to walk on the lead ready for his first day out. Emma has been great in communicating, sending us further information and checking in on Reggi. Would 100% recommend to anyone, worth the money. Thank you!
Reggi is a gorgeous puppy, and with his family committed to his training he will grow into a great dog.
Looking forward to our next session, and this boy joining us in future park sessions.

The training was hands on and actionable straight away. It was great to have all the bits too ready to start as soon as Emma left. She was friendly and easy to talk to about our concerns.
Riley, the 1 year old English Staffy, was not a terribly behaved dog, but there was definitely room for improvement, and as she has a human sibling on the way her family decided that the time had come.
Her family did an awesome job during their first speak dog session and we worked on door control, jumping, boundary control, walking on the lead, dog reactivity and we got plans in place to prepare Riley for when baby arrives.
Looking forward to our next session and seeing Riley go from strength to strength.

What a great first session with Emma today. Riley, our 1 year English Staffy, has always been ok but had room for improvement with jumping and being overexcited when seeing other dogs, We are looking forward to putting some things into practise, a long with preparing her for the arrival of our bub due in June. Thanks so much, we saw so much promise in Riley today and look forward to working with you.
Thanks Ashleigh,looking forward to our next session and seeing Riley go from strength to strength.

I have a 14 year old German shepherd and he was reactive to runners & other dogs going past our property.
Emma has been wonderful she helped me introduce a new female puppy and relax Daxi, and helped me get rid of unwanted behaviour; it’s a work in progress but we are getting there
She is absolutely amazing and will always contact you when you need and has a wealth of knowledge
Thanks Emma you are my rock
Daxi and his new German Shepherd sister Shelby are both gorgeous dogs with a very loving owner.
During our speak dog sessions we have worked on jealous behaviour and sibling rivalry, barking, jumping, pulling on the lead, behaviour around the front door, recall, and general obedience.
Keep up the great work Carol & I will speak to you soon. :)

3rd February 2019Emma Reeves dealt with:
We asked Emma to come to our place to help with our dogs, one of whom was extremely dog reactive, to the point where people were crossing to the other side of the road to avoid us. Even after the initial session, Bailey was so much more confident and less reactive seeing other dogs on our walks. There's still work to do but it's nice to see both dogs feeling happier and more confident in such a short amount of time. Emma's approach was calm, kind but authoritative, and definitely worth the investment for calmer, happier dogs.
Bailey, the 12 year old Spoodle, and Boston, the 12 year old Cocker Spaniel, and their family needed some help.
During our first speak dog session we worked on:
🐾 Pulling on the lead
🐾 Dog reactivity
🐾 Separation anxiety
🐾 Door control
Their family did a brilliant job during their first session and we saw big improvements in both boys straight away.
Looking forward to seeing these guys at our park session soon.

I was very impressed with the training, Emma was excellent.
Porcha really listened to Emma, and it really helped me to understand dogs better.
The training was really interesting & it gave me the knowledge to have a good puppy.
I will definitely recommend Emma & Bark Busters, I don't know where I would be without their help. For me it is worth every dollar & I am very happy & satisfied with the service.
When I first met Porcha, the Labradoodle, she was only 10 weeks old.
During our first training session we covered all the puppy basics including how to stop jumping, nipping, biting, chewing and barking. We dealt with toilet toilet training, practised recall and started to get Porcha to walk on the lead.
Her mum did a fantastic job and only 6 weeks later Porcha is a brilliantly behaved puppy. She is walking beautifully on the lead, coming when called, and not chewing, biting or barking.
I'm looking forward to seeing this little lady at our park sessions. :)
