Kelly came out to see us to help with our Standard Dachshund, Dudley. He had very bad anxiety separation and we were moving house soon after our appointment with Kelly and were worried about new neighbor's. After the first visit with Kelly we couldn't believe how much his behaviour improved literally over night. The training is very comprehensive and really very simple and easy to carry on after Kelly's been. Kelly was lovely and very calm, understanding and very thorough. Can't recommend highly enough.
We love a Dachshund! Dudley was so great to work with, and has responded so well to our gentle methods - looking forward to working on dog to dog management at our next lesson. It gives our clients peace of mind to know their guarantee moves house with them! You have been really consistent, well done.

Kelly is awesome and can’t get a better trainer. She has been doing our puppy school for years after she help one of our nurses with her golden. Both my labs have done puppy school and now are big dog school. Maple my 8 month lab is being a handful and she has been awesome at keeping me calm and working with her. We are slowly getting there. My 4 year lab who still goes every now and again couldn’t be a better dog and it’s cause of all the training over the years with Kelly.
You have been so consistent and dedicated with your training, with both your babies, and Maple is starting to come along so nicely! I LOVE working with the Yeronga Vet team, I can't thank you all enough for having me as part of the family!

Within 2 hour period our puppy went from barking constantly for no reason to hardly any barking at all. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to everyone.
Princess is such a gorgeous little Dachshund, and you have both done an amazing job with consistently following through with your training - she was so relaxed at our second lesson! Well done!

Kelly was fantastic with our two little dogs Buddy and Bella. She introduced a whole new world to us when it came to owning dogs.
We love our dogs very much (perhaps too much) and Kelly showed us a respectful ‘line in the sand’ and the need for boundaries and a leader in the home.
This and many others skills which we implemented have created great positive change in our little household. We feel more in control now, and our dogs seem to be more settled in themselves. Together with her amazing knowledge and experience in general dog wellbeing, training, diet etc our dogs are more contented and so are we! She has been a real blessing to us and our dogs. Thank you Kelly.
I love working with the older crew! At age 13, Buddy (corgi x) was not always good with guests and with his partner in crime, Miss Bella (Chihuahua x mini foxie - age 9), everyone knew when they were around with the naughty barking and fence running. So proud of their owners! No more door answering, fence running, and on lead they are improving with every walk....with a bit of #speakdog assistance, they are now walking on a loose lead and becoming much more tolerant of dogs walking past when out at the lake enjoying the sun. Well done everyone!

Extremely pleased with the training and couldn't believe the change after one lesson. It was very interesting and I learnt tips I can use with my other dogs. I found the training different to what I've done before but the results where quicker.
Always nice to see a big timid dog come on in leaps and bounds, great work!

My 3 year old rescue dog Jack didn’t bark when I was home but would bark for hours when I was away. The neighbours were caring but understandably annoyed and it was definitely stressing me out! I tried the citronella and sound bark collars with absolutely no success and thought that I would have to give Jack away which broke my heart. One visit from Kelly and Jack stopped barking during the day and has improved so much with his behaviour and not jumping on people. Kelly went through all of the basics with Jack and I and we’ve enjoyed doing the daily training she left us with. I can highly recommend a visit from Kelly to sort barking and other behavioural problems! It’s great value for money considering the other alternatives my friends and I have all tried with our rescue dogs!
He is such a lucky dog to have been rescued by such a caring and proactive owner! I was so impressed with the differences at your second lesson and can't wait to see how he goes at group training! Well done.

Kelly came to us to assist with our 10month old Cavoodle who is very anxious and was barking a lot at the neighbors and everything else !! After the first session she suggested getting him crate trained to assist with the anxious behavior and somewhere safe for him in the backyard. Within 3 weeks he is now successfully crate trained and a much happier and calmer dog with using the strategies that Kelly gave us. We are definitely one very happy customer!!! Thanks so much to Kelly for all of her assistance.
What a different puppy! From a barking and scared little beastie, to a happy wagging tail, walking politely on lead with no barking to be seen - you have done an amazing job, well done!

Thank you Kelly for the training so far , Treasure has improved so much with the training , can't believe the difference a few weeks has made to our walks. Now a quiet home, Treasure used to bark all the time on our walks she gave me a headache . And today I had my second lesson with Kelly , I walked after the lesson and treasure only barked 3 times . Amazing improvement thanks Kelly.
Shelties can be tricky to gain focus, as they are a working breed, but you have done an amazing job with Miss Treasure, I was really thrilled with the improvements! See you soon for our next lesson walking beachside :-)

Kelly knows her stuff. Very helpful and contactable for any extra questions outside of training sessions. Training the human is the hardest part and Kelly does it with ease!
Your consistency is paying off, great work!

Omg this woman is amazing. She has equipped me the tools to make my home happy and stress free for my lovely Lillie and Charlotte.
I can not believe the relief I feel and the confidence she has given me to move forward.
Thank you so much Kelly 😍😍😍
It was a pleasure to be welcomed into your home! You have two gorgeous little babies, with completely separate issues, and I really enjoyed showing you how to manage both your fur-darlings and make things a little more relaxed :-).
