Simple, effective commands that enabled us to address the issue and show a fantastic behaviour change. Philip is a sophisticated and friendly individual that understands dogs behaviours and how to effectively counteract misbehaviour. Thank you!

Trainer note from Philip:
Oakley is just 11 months old, and a male Kelpie cross Border Collie cross Curly Coat Golden Retriever. He was hyperactive, nipping them and their clothes, barking and generally not so easy to be with. He was also starting to actually growl at them and was lunging at dogs and people on walks. Altogether getting out of hand. Finally, hew was really harassing their other older dog, Napoloen (Nappy for short) a 10 year old male Maltese who really wasn't enjoying the attention. We showed Oakley's owners how to gain control over him, correct him for annoying Nappy, and generally calm down. Oakley did really well!

Training was very thorough and very professional. It was easy to understand and there were clear behavioural changes to Archie.

Trainer note from Philip:
Archie is a rambunctious 3 year old Groodle male (Golden Retriever cross Poodle) and there was a complaint (anonymous) about barking from a neighbour. So Archie's humans got me in to help. Over the course of the 3 hour lesson they learnt so much about why he was barking. They also learnt how to calm him down, and how to get him to walk on a loose lead (something he had never done before). They saw how good he could be and that his boisterous ways where a symptom of his inner stress. He is young, and so full of beans! Progress will be gradual in gaining real control. However, his humans are loving and dedicated and will keep up our 15-20 minutes a day of simple exercises. I'll be back in a few weeks to further his training. Well done Archie so far!

We really enjoyed the training and we think Finley will thrive with the difference in our new pack!

Trainer note from Philip:
Finley is about 9 months old and is Kelpie cross Coolie female. She had become dog aggressive on walks, and even was lunging at humans too. Inside she had started to wee on the couch overnight regularly too. She would also bark at her humans to get their attention, demanding that they play with her or feed her....NOW! So rude! They loved the lesson and were amazed at how Fin calmed down and how tired she was at the end. She just lay down and dozed. They also learnt how to stop Fin racing to the front door over-excitedly to greet any guests arriving. Fin has a way to go to be a very well behaved dog, but is certainly on the right track now. Daily repetition of #barkbusters lessons and the results will be there. Well done so far Sophie & Aaron.

This is the third dog we have taken through the 'Bark Busters' system. Philip showed us he was genuinely interested and well suited to his job.

Trainer note from Philip:
Pablo is a cutie! And he knows it! A tiny Chihuahua male about 9-10 months old, he shares his home with Ollie, a 3 year old Chihuahua x Pug. Pablo was annoying Ollie, biting his tail and pulling him around, licking his face constantly and also bolting away from his humans with no interest or intention to come back when called! His humans want to travel around Australia shortly in their new campavan and the dogs must be well behaved for that! So they learned to #speakdog at our first lesson. We all saw Pablo improve immediately. And Ollie would have said "thank you" if he spoke English!

Ella went from being stressed/overexcited to a much calmer dog within 5 minutes of visit. The time flew and it was great seeing Ella react positively to the training experience.

Trainer note from Philip:
Ella is a rescued King Charles Cavalier female who Mary has taken on top of her other 3 rescued dogs! Mary is a super dog lover! Ella was very stressed after all her changes and was absolutely out of control when guests arrived and in the car going to a dog park. However Mary learned how to help her be calmer in one short lesson (3 hours at least!). Have a look at my youtube channel for video of this lesson. Search "Philip Comans youtube" to find this channel.

We could understand what was involved and our Babushka was a lot more calmer by the end of the training.

Trainer note from Philip:
Babushka is a 4.5yr old female Husky and she jumped, nipped and didn't listen. She was getting aggressive with her humans too. She didn't like being told "no"! Well after a lesson she was so improved. She was calmer, and her humans could correct the jumping easily. No punishment used. Well done Babushka!

Our cattle dog was walking at heel 100% better than she ever had - within only a few minutes.

Trainer note from Philip:
Bernie is a young, 1 year old, female Cattle Dog. She was going crazy when seeing other dogs on walks and choking herself and frightening her humans and the other dogs. She wasn't aggressive but it was no fun walking her. So her humans wanted her to walk on a loose lead! Mission accomplished! She also barked at passers by and small kids, both issues we dealt with at the lesson. Well done Ryan, Laura and of course Bernie!

Miley improved, amazing results in recognising BAH and developing her ability to walk on a lead with distractions. I am so impressed at how it worked and am happy with Miley's progress so far. I'm very happy and can't wait to see further improvements!

Trainer note from Philip:
Miley is a 2.5 year old Staffy female cross who was jumping up (at 25kg that was a big issue), pulling clothes off the line, and digging to China! She was also biting her sibling Ruby on the face. She has also chewed up all the plants in the garden! We saw fantastic improvements in lesson #1 and there will be more to come! Well done Miley!

Stitch became really responsive and it's being the best he has ever walked on the lead in 10 years. It has been great to see Stitch gain more confidence.

Trainer note from Philip:
Stitch is a 10 year old Border Collie and his owners just moved into a new home. Already a neighbour complained to Council about Stitch's barking. So Bark Busters came to help out. Stitch did super well at lesson 1 and as his human said above they had never seen him walk so well on the lead in 10 years! He also showed that he will be able to stop his barking with a little work from his humans.Good job Stitch!

Buster stopped jumping and biting by the end of session. It was great to see results with no physical force.

Trainer note from Philip:
Buster is super cute! An 11 week old German Shepherd puppy who just needed to have some boundaries set by his loving humans. Not a bad boy at all, just misunderstood! His habits of jumping, nipping at hands and clothes and chewing were all improved in just his first Bark Busters' lesson. I'll be back when his humans call me to continue his education.
