From the first moment I met Jane I felt really comfortable with her. She explained things really well, listened to everything I had to say and showed ways to settle down my 11 month old Cavoodle puppy. Also explained how important it was for me to be the boss - not Archie. Each lesson has been enjoyable because Jane is so calm.and teaches you that also. Can't thank you enough Jane.
It was such a pleasure to work with Archie and his Mum. Archie is listening well and learning very quickly how to be a calm and happy cavoodle. Great work Mum & Archie:))

We contacted Bark Busters as we were having trouble controlling our large Staffy. We struggled with everything including walking him, jumping on the fence, jumping up on doors, and also his anxiety around other dogs. We had Jane come over for a few hours on a Sunday, and she gave us advice we have never been given before. Every other dog trainer always say the same things and it never works. Jane’s unique approach is exactly what we needed and we saw a huge difference in our dogs behaviour even after the first training session. Whilst we still have a long way to go, we are much happier and a lot less stressed. Going for walks is becoming so much more relaxing as our dog is finally listening to us! Changing our dogs diet has also made a huge difference and he is loving his new food. We definitely couldn’t have done this without Jane and we are so grateful! We would not hesitate in recommending Jane to all of our family and friends and we have already done so. Thank you so much :)
Thank you so much for your very kind words. Darwin was certainly a very exuberant and boisterous Staffy and you have done a great job following Bark Busters positive training methods. He is walking so well on his Bark Busters Wagg Walker. Well done everyone:))

Jane has been amazing. A true life doggy Mary Poppins. With a spit spot and a tablespoon of Baaaah Cara has been whipped into shape. Jane will always be a member of our little family and it is always good to know she will pop in and sort us out. Cara, our little labradoodle is an absolute pleasure and it's all down to Jane. Who you gonna call....? Bark busters!! 🐾🐾🐾
thank you so much for inviting me into your home and your very kind comments! Little Cara, such a gorgeous labradoodle needed some puppy management, boundaries and to know what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. She is a very important member of your family and you will have our ongoing support:))

Jane was great in helping us understand our 2 GSPs behaviour and how to use body language and our voices to communicate with them. She was also very helpful in explaining to us the relationship between the two dogs - with the female being the pack leader and the male basically doing what he was told by the female. We are thrilled with the way the two dogs can now walk calmly on a lead without pulling. Taking them for a walk was not a pleasant experience before Jane helped us and it was near impossible for one person to walk the two dogs - now they calmly walk next to each other, making walks very enjoyable. We highly recommend Jane's services!
Milo and Coco had real problems walking together with Mum and Dad. A couple of options were explored and the Bark Busters Wagg Walkers provided the best solution ever. Great job everyone, it was a real treat to see Dad walk these guys happily, with no pulling and totally relaxed.

Highly recommend Jane with Bark Busters! Our little girl was getting out of control. Constantly barking, biting, jumping up on everybody, wouldn’t come to her name, it was a chase to pick her up, and grrrr under our feet in the kitchen and she had shredded our curtains from jumping at the window barking. Yes. our little girl was taking over and destroying our home.
Desperate my husband called Bark Busters and we had Jane over to meet our little girl.
Unbelievable in the first visit we were shown new ways to get back our control and have not looked back. Continuing with the training Jane taught us we have made huge progress.
Two weeks later Jane returned to help us with some other issues like going in the car. Jane arrived and I had to hug her as we now have a little girl whom we’re so proud of that’s not creating chaos thanks to Bark Busters.
We can not recommend this service highly enough with the results being proven in such a short time.
Thank you Jane xx
Roske is a beautiful 1yo pure bred Pug who would not stop barking, jumping, nipping and basically doing whatever she wanted. Mum and Dad have their lives back and have done an awesome job taking to Bark Busters positive reinforcement training.

Jane was great and gave me fantastic tips on helping with Luna. She trained us both. Would recommend her to anyone looking for some help with their dog.

Jane has been an enormous help with Molly who has the loudest most piercing bark that you've ever heard. Since Jane came and spent a couple of hours with us, Molly's barking has diminished so much which makes life much more pleasant for Molly and me. Molly has become quite a different dog, much calmer. She's also learnt that she's not "the Boss!" I should have contacted Jane a long time ago. Many, many thanks Jane. Cheers Rhonda and Molly.

As first time dog owners we have very much appreciated Jane's help to give our 9 month old puppy boundaries and house rules to live by. She has taught us how to speak dog and given us techniques so that we can help Eddie to behave well in our home. No longer do we have a dog that jumps up, barks to get what he wants and dictates the routines. We now have a calmer, more obedient dog who is a joy to be around. It is also reassuring to know that we can call Jane back at anytime to work on any newly identified issues. Jane has been great with all of the members of our family to ensure that they are all confident with dealing with Eddie. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane and the Bark busters way. Jane is patient, calm, encouraging and able to read situations to produce positive outcomes. Thank you for restoring peace and harmony to our home and family!
Thank you for your very kind words and thank you especially for inviting me into your home to assist you with Eddie's behaviour. Everyone has done a great job with consistency and I have no doubt Eddie is a happier, more content fluffy boy:))

Jane was fantastic and she helped us so much - we saw a different dog from the first session. My 2-year-old kelpie was a rescue dog and came without much history of behaviour control or boundaries, and appeared unfamiliarity with streets, leashes, traffic, people. Jane helped us to understand how to put boundaries in place to shape a quieter more attentive dog, how to manage separation anxiety, and how to have her walk comfortably on leash. Throughout it all she was warm, caring, and gentle with Ginja. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jane!
Thank you so much for your very kind words. It always makes my day when a great dog like Ginja gets a second chance and you have certainly put everything in place for her to have a happy and contented life.
