Paul M GIDGEGANNUP, Western Australia | November 28 2023
Glen is absolutely brilliant to deal with. Our Border Collie Luna is a different dog since putting the practical and easy to maintain skills he taught us during his first lesson into practice. Luna is very happy with the BARF diet as suggested to us by Glen rather than kibble. We now have a calm, content and more obdient dog. Very happy with the outcome. Thank you Glen. Permalink

Shantelle H Lambton, New South Wales | November 28 2023
Martin was very knowledgeable and definitely knew what he was taking about. Martin was kind and non-judgemental, both toward myself, my family and my dog Odin. Even over just the past few days after Martin's initial visit, we have noticed a significant change in Odin's behaviours. Initially, I thought all of the reviews made it sound too good to be true, but honestly, if you're hitting your last nerve with your dogs behaviours and are feeling out of options; Bark Busters is the way to go.

Trainer note from Martin : Thank you so much Shantelle, it was a pleasure working with you, your family and Odin. It was great to see Odin respond so well to the Bark Busters training as he is such a clever boy. Keep up the good work, well done and thanks for choosing Bark Busters.

Bruce B Woolloongabba, Queensland | November 28 2023
Kelly was very clear with instructions, very knowledgeable and responsive. Would ( and have) recommended her to family and friends. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Recall, Separation anxiety, Toileting
Trainer note from Kelly : Thank you so much, Bruce, for your kind words, it was fantastic to work with you both! One owner with dog experience, and one never owned a pet - it was great to impart information that was useful to you both, and provide support post lesson, before I see you both again before Christmas. Focus was on toilet training, puppy management, recall, and sleeping patterns - can't wait to get out in public next session and work on stay and recall with distractions! A very healthy and happy young pup, he is going to be a wonderful companion for many years! Thanks for your consistency and hard work!

Alli C Butler, Western Australia | November 27 2023
I honestly can’t rate Glen highly enough. My beautiful and affectionate ridgeback cross had developed severe issues with men and anxiety and after 1 session she is truly like a new dog. Such an easy way of training to learn and worth every penny and I’ve been recommending it to everyone. Permalink

We have had so many trainers for Ellie but with no help at all but after only a short time with Martin you could see the difference 2 now and am so excited in the behaviour of our dog Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Barking, Jumping up, Pulling, Recall, Separation anxiety
Trainer note from Martin : Hi Karen, thank you so much for the review. It was a pleasure working with you and Ellie to help her understand that she didn't need to be in charge anymore after all this time and so many other trainers. With our Bark Busters training program Ellie will become a better behaved darling and a pleasure to be with. Looking forward to our next lesson.

Ruth H New Beith, Queensland | November 27 2023
Kelly is amazing! Such a beautiful lady and so easy to talk to, she listened to our problems and what we needed help with, our little beagle is 1yr old and full of energy and gets up to mischief so with Kelly's guidance we have been able to get our second chance with chino! Thank you so much Kelly!! Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Chewing, Hyperactivity, Jumping up, Puppy management, Recall
Trainer note from Kelly : What a fun lesson! Your family is delightful, and so willing to listen to different options, to regain control of Chino. Beagles can be a challenge to a lot of owners, so you're not alone, but he responded so well to our gentle methods, and he loved the praise! Showing you how to correct the jumping up, door manners, recall (yes, even with a beagle LOL), rough play, lead manners - we fitted so much in on lesson 1, and I cannot wait for lesson 2, where we'll focus on stay with distractions, pulling on lead, and social skills. Well done, and thanks again for letting me help :-).

Elisa S Sydney/Woolooware, New South Wales | November 26 2023
Having recently completed training sessions with Ken for my little buddy Larry, I can confidently say it was a transformative experience. Ken demonstrated exceptional expertise in solving my dog’s issues. Ken was patient and very professional in teaching my husband and me to train Larry, making a difference in my dog's obedience and behaviour. Not only did Ken effectively teach commands, but they also offered invaluable advice on handling various situations at home. One standout moment was when my dog successfully learned to 'stay' even amidst distractions—a testament to Ken's dedication and expertise. Thanks to ken, my dog's behaviour has noticeably improved. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking professional and effective training for their furry companions." Permalink

Courtney M Runaway Bay, Queensland | November 26 2023
Kelly is such a wealth of knowledge! Her knowledge of how to care for and train dogs is unbelievable. Kelly gave me the confidence to begin my training journey with our puppy. Couldn’t believe how quickly our puppy responded to the techniques Kelly taught us. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Chewing, Jumping up, Puppy management
Trainer note from Kelly : Thanks Courtney! Your family has a long history with dogs, and you already had her on the right track, but with some focused behavioural training, she is going to be the most amazing Border Collie! Recall is so important, and no one likes a dog racing through doors, so it was great to get her on the right path. Watching your confidence grow when we did the lead work was excellent, and her relationship with your gorgeous cat will improve with consistency and boundaries. I can't wait for lesson 2! Thanks again for inviting me out to assist :-)

Kerri V Redland Bay, Queensland | November 25 2023
I was absolutely shocked at the very first command that Kelly gave Dakota and he responded positively. I instantly thought, we can do this and was looking forward to not giving up on Dakota. I had got to the point that I wouldn’t go anywhere with him as it was so hard to deal with him and everyone would get upset with his high pitched barking at every little noise anyone would make. We are using the technique of ‘bah’ and it is helping so much. Can’t wait to continue so that Dakota can reach his full potential and we will have the tools to help him do that. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Barking, Other, Recall
Trainer note from Kelly : Thank you so much Kerri! It was so lovely to work with you, your partner and your support worker. When we work with therapy dogs it is imperative that we don't conflict with the awesome training they've already had, and ensure that what we're doing it working parallel to that, and also in a very positive manner. To see your adorable Cavoodle, Dakota, respond to our fun system, within minutes was amazing! He is so super smart, and he realised that barking, jumping up, chasing the cats and pulling on lead weren't on the good side of the behaviour list. For a dog that has struggled with recall (coming when called), he was on point once we finished lesson #1! We will continue to work on cat control at lesson 2, plus get outside and look at recall in an open environment, plus consolidate barking and lead control. Massive well done!

Martin was great we saw improvement within 10 minutes of him being here and he is going along well now and getting better just about everyday and with the next lesson he should improve even more. Permalink

Trainer note from Martin : Hi Wayne, thanks for your review and for choosing Bark Busters to help manage Max's barking, separation anxiety, jumping up, answering door, fence racing, biting toes going down the stairs, pulling on lead. It was amazing to see Max responding so well to the Bark Busters training system, keep up the good work! Looking forward to our next session.
