14th February 2019Emma Reeves dealt with:
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. :)

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. :)

one very tired dog after an amazing initial session with Emma! So thankful for the patience and guidance provided by Emma. Feeling more confident in my ability to be the dog owner/leader that Kosta deserves. Just spending two hours with Emma provided me with knowledge of how to train Kosta and help him learn to focus. Very impressed!
Kosta, the 8 year old American Bulldog X, is a very lucky boy to have been rescued by such a loving family.
Kosta's mum called Bark Busters for help & explained that he didn't have the best start to life and this has left him with extreme dog reactivity.
Along with his behaviour when he sees other dogs, we addressed Jumping, Hyperactive Behaviour and Pulling on the Lead.
Both Kosta & his mum did an amazing job during their first speak dog session and I'm looking forward to getting back to check on progress soon.

29th January 2019Emma Reeves dealt with:
Excellent training, Emma is very knowledgeable and consistent with my dog, as a result, Beau has changed completely with in two weeks.
Beau is a 2 year old Jack Russell x Chihuahua, and his dad called Bark Busters for help with his severe separation anxiety, it was so bad that Beau could not be left alone at all.
Along with the separation anxiety Beau was causing trouble with:
🐾 Jumping up at Peter for attention.
🐾 Barking at people and dogs when out on walks, passersby at home, and he would go crazy at the door knock.
🐾 Pulling on the lead, Beau may be small in stature but he used to pull his dad along like a steam train.
🐾 Answering the front door, Beau would rush at people at the door which resulted in his dad picking him up every time he answered the door.
During our first speak dog session we worked on all of Beau's behaviour issues along with practising sit and stay, and we saw an instant transformation in his behaviour.
At our follow up session 2 weeks later Beau is a completely different dog! With Peter's training and leadership, Beau can now relax and be a well mannered dog.
Looking forward to seeing them at our park sessions soon. 🐾🐾

8th January 2019Emma Reeves dealt with:
The training was excellent - informative, easy to follow, hands on and with immediate results.
We feel so much more confident that we have effective strategies to teach our puppy good manners - no more treat training!
We also have a way to reduce Zorro's cat chasing - others were so negative about this possibility but Emma didn't bat an eyelid.
Zorro has responded beautifully to the training, he and we are much happier and less anxious about our life together.
Zorro is a 4 month old Jack Russell X who joined his family about a month ago.
Along with his cat chasing, Zorro was also causing trouble with barking, jumping, pulling on the lead, chewing, digging, rushing through doors and not coming when called.
His family did an awesome job during their first speak do session, and I'm looking forward to getting back to check on their progress. :)

The time flew with the quality detail and tips that Emma was able to pass on to myself which will allow me to be a better teacher to Stevie. Emma's approach is clear and precise and allows you to ask as many questions as required.
I look forward to our follow up session and the ongoing support provided, having Emma there is certainly a nice piece of mind to have...thank you Emma
Stevie is a gorgeous, 15 week old, female, Chocolate Labrador.
During her first speak dog session we worked on walking nicely on the lead, jumping, nipping and mouthing, recall, boundary control, safety around the swimming pool & toileting.
I'm looking forward to our next session, and seeing Stevie grow into a well mannered dog.
Keep up the great work Pete, and I'll see you soon. 😊
