Emma Reeves dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Emma was an absolute delight to work with, she understood the problems Alfie and I were having and showed us how to correct the problem without making us feel incompetent.

She showed us different techniques to use in different situations.

I would highly recommend Emma for any dog training.

Trainer note from Emma:
Alfie, is a stunning 18 month old Cattle Dog X, who has been giving his mum in particular the run around.

He would run around crazily barking if he saw another dog, was dog reactive on the lead, jumped up & nipped when he was excited, he was digging in the lawn and garden beds, and had separation anxiety from his mum & his doggy brother.

Alfie's family did a great job during their first speak dog session & we worked on showing Alfie that mum and dad are both in charge, so that he can now relax.

Keep up the great work guys.
Looking forward to seeing you soon. :)

Emma is incredible!!

Bowie, is a very intelligent, loving and adorable 18mth Boxer/Staffy, but... Oh Boy!! There is also "Capt. Destruct-O", with issues!

I have tried vet suggested group classes; 1-1 trainers; theramone collars and biscuits; even been recommended to try an animal behaviouralist!! I did not know what else to do, and was at my wits end!! So much so, that I was even starting to think the un-thinkable!!

Enter Emma, and the Barkbusters methods.

After just one 2hr session the difference was amazing. Now, there is no longer a 26kg jumping, excited whirlwind every time I open the door, my house and contents are no longer a race track, and walking is now a fun training exercise rather than a stressful yelling chore!!

The next step, undoubtedly the hardest, is calming the reaction to other dogs, and learning how to be sociable. Already, again a noticeable change has occurred, thanks to Emma.

Bowie is not perfect by any means, and there is still work to be done, but he is definatly 100x improved, and I'm a much happier doggie-dad!!

Heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Emma, who has done such an amazing job. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone.

Regards Cliff and Bowie.

Trainer note from Emma:
Thanks Cliff!

You guys have come on in leaps and bounds since I fist met you, and Bowie's behaviour at our park session this week shows what huge progress you have made.

Keep being a strong consistent leader and Bowie will only continue to improve. 😁

Emma Reeves dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Very helpful, so far our little pup is responding well. Still a bit of a way to go but we are at least confident that we will get him there.

Trainer note from Emma:
Aptly named Teddy is an adorable 16 week old Border Collie.

He had started to display a few behaviours that his family wanted to get on top of to ensure that he grows into a well behaved boy.
During our first session we covered puppy basics, along with addressing his barking, jumping, biting, recall & attacking the broom.

With their training plan in place Teddy's family are on track, and I'll be back to check in on them again soon.

Emma was great! We have a 21 month old Australia Bulldog who had started to become quite hyperactive. We had problems with barking, jumping up and recently aggression towards other people. We were a bit concerned about how he would react with the training but was amazed at how great Emma explained everything. We couldn’t believe how well Kudo took to the training. Highly recommend Emma! Looking forward to whats to come! Thanks for your help Emma!

Trainer note from Emma:
Kudo is a 21 month old Australian Bulldog, and this big boy had become quite the handful!

As his family mentioned, they were having problems with barking, growling & aggression towards people, and he was also causing trouble with his jumping, pulling on the lead, not listening and hyperactive behaviour.

His family did a fantastic job during their first speak dog session & I'm looking forward to seeing them again soon. :)

Emma is amazing at what she does and we are so grateful for her help. She has basically trained us to train Arthur and it is already clear that this has strengthened and improved the relationship we have with him. Prior to Emma's visit we were experiencing a number of problems that we had tried to deal with using a variety of methods recommended to us. Emma's methods are by far the easiest yet most effective methods we have used and we cannot recommend her highly enough! We have a plan for the next 6 weeks and so far Arthur has done nothing but improve, despite the odd cheeky moment when he tries to test our (now very strong) boundaries.

We are super excited to see even more improvements in Arthur's behaviour and also feel extremely reassured that we now have Emma to rely on for the rest of Arthur's life, just in case we encounter any further issues down the line.

Thanks again Emma!

Trainer note from Emma:
Thanks guys :)

Arthur, is an adorable 15 week old Labrador x Retriever, who was masquerading as a mini shark!
Along with his biting, Arthur was causing trouble with barking and crying if left alone, jumping up, chewing, biting at the lead and having a few toilet accidents.

Arthur's family did a fantastic job during their first speak dog session and I cannot wait to see them all again soon! :)

Training was brilliant... Emma was so friendly and made us feel so comfortable.. She was amazing with her knowlede and how she taught us to teach Toby.. We saw instant results in Toby’s behaviour, especially his barking.

Trainer note from Emma:
Toby is a 9 month old Toy Poodle who was not only causing trouble for his human family but also his older doggy brother & sister too.

His family did a great job during their first speak dog session and along with addressing his major BARKING issue, we covered jealous behaviour, jumping up, digging, recall and pulling on the lead.

Looking forward to our follow up session to see Toby's continued progress.

We covered puppy basics and preventative measures, along with dealing with jumping, barking, recall, getting used to a lead & collar, and toilet training.

Our session with Emma was extremely informative and we saw improvement in our two dogs straight away. Each day we see our dogs respond more to what we are asking of them and are now hopeful that we will be able to take our dogs outside our home without being concerned about controlling their behaviour.

Trainer note from Emma:
Focus is a 6 year old Kelpie X and Marshal is a 4 year old Blue Heeler X.

Their family learnt how to speakdog as these boys were causing trouble with:
🐾 pulling on the lead
🐾 hyperactive behaviour
🐾 attention seeking
🐾 separation anxiety
🐾 dog reactivity
🐾 chewing

They all did a great job in their first session and now have a plan in place to get these boys onto the right track.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Emma's first session with Kyah totally changed Kyahs behaviour and gave me and my wife so much confidence. Emma is a great trainer . Emma thanks so much.

Trainer note from Emma:
Kyah is a stunning 12 month old German Shepherd who had been really pushing the limits with her family.
She had racked up a long list of troubles including:
🐾 barking at strangers
🐾 going crazy when visitors arrived
🐾 jumping on everyone & everything
🐾 pulling on the lead
🐾 stealing items
🐾 over exuberant behaviour
🐾 being very destructive

Her family did a great job during their first speak dog session, and we saw massive improvements in Kyah's behaviour straight away. With their commitment to her training this girl will improve in leaps and bounds.

Keep up the great work guys, I'll see you soon. 😊

Emma came out to me yesterday and within 1 hour I had a new dog, I can't believe how easy the techniques are. Highly recommend

Trainer note from Emma:
Molly is a beautiful Border Collie x Kelpie who is almost 2 years old.
She had been causing trouble for a while, but it was when another dog joined the family that her mum decided it was time to get help.
Molly was very snappy and aggressive towards the new comer, and her mum could not have them together. She also caused trouble with barking, jumping, not coming when called, she was obsessed with the family's cats and a nightmare to walk on the lead - if you could catch her to get a collar on her that is.

Her mum did an amazing job during our first training session and we saw an instant transformation in Molly's behaviour. She came when called, there was no issue getting a lead and collar on, she started to learn how to walk nicely on the lead, left the cats alone when told, but most importantly of all she was calm and relaxed around the new doggy addition to the family.
