Stefanie Budiman dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Stefanie was great at teaching us different techniques to control Leo and help him focus on us. The techniques were logical and very easy to understand. Leo picked up the training quite quickly and we were able to practice a lot in our own time. Stefanie also brought her dogs to help train leo and we attended a group training class.

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Matt! Leo (American staffy) is one lucky rescue dog to have such committed owners. You have done very well in following up with your homework and overcoming the anxiousness and aggression that can overwhelm Leo when he passes other dogs, due to his past trauma. Keep up the great work in increasing his confidence and focus on you!

Stefanie Budiman dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Stef was an absolute lifesaver! The improvement that the training has made to our lives is absolutely incredible. Stef was super friendly, helpful and understanding. The training she provided was not telling us what we were doing wrong, like I expected dog training to be. Instead, Stef was super encouraging and explained everything, including the reasons behind why we do everything. Within 10 minutes we could already see a massive difference. We are currently doing our homework exercised and everyone is loving it, especially Loki.

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Ash! Loki (3 year old Kelpie x) is an absolute angel! He's very lucky to be rescued and found a fantastic home with you and Lex and wants to please. I am very happy we provided the correct strategies to reduce his excessive barking and other general misbehaviours, and improve his walking and focus. Well done in getting fantastic results and keep up the great work!

Stefanie Budiman dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Digging Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Toileting

Stef was amazing with our Silky Terrior Tom. We were having issues with Tom’s aggressive behaviour towards other dogs when out walking and his poor door manners. On Stef’s first visit she had taught us how to speak to Tom and get him to really listen to us. We couldn’t believe we were seeing a difference in the first session! Stef was so patient and caring with Tom, she really took the time to listen to our concerns and teach us how to correct Tom’s bad behaviour. Tom has come such a long way and we are so thankful to Stef for helping us.

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Emma! It was lovely to work with you and your family. Tom the 3 year old Silky Terrier certainly has a loud bark! I am very glad to have seen such steady progress in his reaction towards the challenges that he faces everyday, especially at the doorbell / buzzer and when he sees other dogs during his walks. He also did very well in our group session. Well done Tom and his family!

Both Blue and Oscar (Cavalier x Bichon Frise) were super responsive and knew what was expected of them within minutes of the training session and would not bark at the door bell or knocks. Great work in being consistent, especially when they bark to get in at night. Well done to you and your family!

WOW! what a difference Stefanie has made to our pack already. Stefanie really understands dog and delivers the Bark Busters program with enthusiasm and care for both four legged and two legged students. Great program, great service, happy dog and happy owner.

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Colin and Heather! Frankie (2 year old Jack Russell) is such a good girl with a very loud bark. She clearly just needs directions and wants to please. And Archie (1 year old Italian Greyhound) is just a sweetie pie; we don't need to worry about him :P Looking forward to our revisit session!

Stefanie Budiman dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Stefanie was great to work with, she was professional and patient as we navigated some behavioural changes with our boy Trevor. She has also been a great resource as we refine our skills and feel very confident that she will support us into the future. A great experience for Trevor as well as us. Thanks Stefanie!

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Judy! Trevor (1 year old terrier cross) is such a good natured pup, brimming with exuberance. He was very responsive to training, immediately calming down after starting his first lesson. He improved in his car manners by sitting calmly and also not crying when being left alone in the car. He also now walks next to his family instead of pulling ahead. Well done Trevor and his family!

It was fantastic! Shaxx can use his doggie door now!!!

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Shaxx ( 7 month old Boston Terrier) was toileting indoors as since he was first brought home, he was not able to learn to use the doggy door and was scared of it. Within 2 lessons, we were able to get him to enthusiastically go in and out using the dooggy door. He is now also waling nicely next to his parents and improved his indoor manners, such as not jumping and greeting guests calmly. Well done Shaxx!

Stefanie was fantastic, taking us through the theory and then some real live practice with her really set us up for success. In a short space of time the behavioural issues we had have been addressed, and we have the puppy of our dreams. Thank you so much for your help!

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Cameron! Shadow the fluffy 7 month old Keeshond was super responsive to training and is just such a sook! Well done on his progress and I look forward to his revisit session when he is a year old. Keep up the great work!

Stefanie has been very helpful teaching my wife and I to setup the basic rules and foundations for our puppy cavoodle to settle into the family. If it wasn't for her guidance our puppy would have been hard to handle and out of control.

Trainer note from Stefanie:
Thanks Alex! Astro ( 2 month old Cavoodle) is such a pleasure to train. He clearly wants to follow and just require directions. Keep up the great work and I look forward to our revisit sessions in the future!

Stefanie went out of her way to travel from Melbourne to Puckapunyal to help us train our dogs. Cash and Bonnie are on their way to being reformed naughty dogs. She has visited us twice to help us understand why they behave the way they do and has trained us to speak their language! We are blown away by how far they have come. Our formerly boisterous dogs who used to pull their way down the street are now trotting next to us like model show dogs, and it only took a few walks. The pointless barking at everything (and nothing) has stopped! They now no longer answer our front door and listen to us when we call their names (most of the time - we are working on it). We have a way to go with Bonnie's fear-aggression issue with other dogs but we feel hopeful that we can help her. Our only regret is that we didn't contact Stefanie sooner. If you are considering booking with Stefanie just do it!
