“Stef is absolutely fantastic! After just two sessions we can already notice a significant difference in both dogs. From separation anxiety too lead pulling and barking I can’t believe the difference in only 3 weeks! Thankyou for all your help this far we would be lost with out.”

Nicole, K., Greenvale, VIC.

“Stef has helped us so much with our 4 year old Dachshund. Dax had issues with barking when people knocked on the door and when we left for work during the day. He also pulled on his lead and was pretty stubborn in listening to our instructions. Dax now walks loosely on his lead and has completely stopped barking when people come to our door. He has also greatly reduced his barking during the day when where not home.”

Brittany, H., Greenvale, VIC.

“Stefanie has successfully helped me train my two fur babies Max and Maya (both 4 years old). I was having huge trouble with separation anxiety due to a recent house move aswell as constant barking at neighbours, cars, post man, jumping up at people, pulling on lead when I walk them and barking at other dogs! The list seemed so overwhelming to start with but stef has successfully helped me out train these naughty behaviours and I now have 2 very well behaved dogs! Highly recommend stef to anyone needing to train their dogs.”

Stephanie, L., Essendon, VIC.

“Stefanie is fantastic to work with. We felt heard. Stefanie helped us to understand what was happening from Charli’s perspective, and subsequently what training we needed to put in place. Charli has responded very well to the techniques taught. The training techniques are straight forward to use and so easy to generalise. We saw improvement in Charli’s behaviour immediately. Wish we had heard of Bark Busters earlier! We highly recommend Stefanie!”

Narelle, B., Briar Hill, VIC.

“Stef was very thorough in helping me with my dog and his behaviour I still can’t believe how much my dog changed from the first lesson . Truly amazing. Bar busters approach in communication has had dramatic changes to the quality of my dog’s life and my family ability to enjoy him thank you so much.”

Sam, S., Melbourne, VIC.

“Stef has been fantastic in helping me with Charlies behaviour. The training techniques used where easy to implement and continue to use over the last 2.5 weeks. I saw immediate changes in Charlies behaviour problems, which have continued to improve with consistent training each day. She barely pulls at all on the lead and is much improved when walking past other dogs. She rarely barks at the tv or door any more which has been a relief. Im really enjoying the changes and having a more relaxed and calm dog. Thank you!”

Laura, F., Airport West, VIC.

“Stef is very easy to work with and is very respectful. You can tell she enjoys working with the dogs. Our dog, Leo, barks like crazy when someone is at the front door. We saw results immediately, and have lots of work ahead but she is checking in and providing help and support as we go.”

Megan, S., Newport, VIC.

“Stef was patient, informative and so so helpful with not just my two dogs Warrick and Walter, but me also. I now feel confident walking them around other dogs knowing what I can do to gain their attention and to get them to stop barking. I was not expecting to see results so quickly, but in just two weeks they are completely different dogs!”

Kirby, S., Highton, VIC.

“We got great results immediately. Thank you Stefanie for sharing of your expertise and experience with us! Our dogs are so much happier now that we can speak “dog’. Thank you!”

Linda, D., Geelong, VIC.

“Stef is amazing! We can’t believe the instant transformation in our dog’s with the training that she did with us and the dog’s. We were specifically looking at aggressive behaviour particularly towards cats and walking on the lead. We are still working with the cat aggression however barking has dropped dramatically and there is absolutely no pulling on the lead. We wish we had done this sooner! Thanks Stef!”

Carla, B., Melbourne, VIC.

“Stefanie was fantastic! She exceeded all my expectations training me to help Harvey be a very relaxed, happy dog. I couldn’t believe how quick the change in him took. After our initial 3 hour session Stefanie gave me the skills and confidence I needed to be the pack leader. I was able to stop Harvey from chasing the vacuum cleaner, recall him immediately from long distances, walking him is now a dream as he no longer pulls, and I am currently working on his separation anxiety with the support and guidance of Stefanie. I could not be more happier with my choice in Bark Busters, their NO physical method, constant support and understanding of a dogs behaviour and how to make corrections from Stephanie is outstanding.”

“Stefanie is a fantastic trainer and I highly recommend her. She helped us train our adopted dog Lady. Since working with her, Lady has gone from being a not-so-well behaved dog to a well mannered trained dog. Stefanie helped us learn everything to help Lady become a 100 percent well mannered dog! Thank you so much.”

Sonia Y., Docklands, VIC.

“We adopted a beautiful American Staffy but had issues controlling her on walks. Stef has made what we thought would be impossible a reality! Our girl now listens to us thanks to Stef and we look forward to future training and development.”

Niamh C., Preston, VIC.

“We adopted a new greyhound who had some issues with toileting inside and cried when we left him alone. Stefanie was recommended to us by a friend and it was a delight working with her. It was great that she also has a greyhound herself so knew of the little quirks this breed has. Stef explained things really clearly and was able to equip us with the tools to dealing with our dog. She gave us additional techniques for general obedience and explained things like how to read body language for both us and Ronnie, so that we could get the best results. After the first session, we saw a marked improvement in Ronnie. Of course, it’s a constantly ongoing process with us getting to know Ronnie and vice versa, but Stef has been really helpful when we’ve needed to contact her again. The lifetime guarantee is definitely a drawcard with Bark Busters but hopefully we won’t need it! Can definitely highly recommend Stefanie.”

“Stef was amazing! Really helped with the issues I was having with my boy! She is very easy to get along with and very knowledgeable! I would recommend her for anyone having issues with their fur baby!!!!”

Josh I., Mernda, VIC.

“Stefanie has been amazing in helping us train Suri, our 3 year old Bull Arab. Suri had reactivity issues and was generally very stubborn but after the first training session we noticed the biggest difference in her behaviour as we learned how to communicate with her effectively. We’ve now had 2 sessions and she responds to us much better and her recall has improved so much. It’s much easier for us to take her out and her door manners are excellent now. We’re still working on her reactivity towards other dogs but she’s made great progress! Thanks Stefanie!”

Prina, K., Briar Hill, VIC.

“We have had three visits from Stefanie so far in the space of one month and already we can see major improvements in our little mini daschund Butters! Before Stefanie came to us Butters was an anxious, miss behaved, non-responsive little boy, now..after only two sessions he is such a different dog. We are so appreciative of the help, great advice and around the clock support that we have received from Stefanie! Very much looking forward to improving even more but we know we are on the right track with Bark Busters!”

Michelle, S., Greensborough, VIC.

“Stefanie helped me alot with zara after one session I’m already seeing great results she was really understanding and kind and made it so easy for me.”

David, B., Greensborough, VIC.

“We are so pleased with the change in our beautiful young girl. The training Jessie and we received has been of a great benefit. We are so grateful to Stephanie for she has taught us. We would recommend Bark Busters to everyone looking to train their furry family member, you won’t be sorry you did.”

Peter, M., Westmeadows, VIC.

“Stef has been a pleasure to work with and has a wealth of knowledge. She has given us confidence and equipped us with skills to manage our puppy. Will definitely recommend her to anyone having puppy or dog issues.”

Chloe, M., Fawkner, VIC.

“Coco needed help with pretty extreme pulling on the lead, which was an issue as he is a big (45kg) boy. Stefanie taught us really effectively to change his behaviour in regard to his lead walking, as well as a few other issues like answering the door when people visited, and jumping on guests. We have had two follow up sessions with Stefanie, including meeting her three dogs and using them as distractors for Coco when walking on the lead. Coco is now able to walk on a loose lead and was able to ignore the other dogs when walking on the lead. Thank you Stef.”

Hannah, R., Coburg, VIC.

“Over the last few weeks I have been working with Stef from Bark Busters Northcote area to help my dog Alfie with his ongoing separation and isolation anxiety. His anxiety was so bad that I couldn’t even take out my garbage bins without him going into full blown crying, destructive and overall panicked state. I tried multiple different solutions from toys, jackets, diffusers, treats and even medications prescribed by my vet and had seen little to no success at all. After spending copious amounts of money on products and medications I decided to look into trainers, this is how I came across Bark Busters. What really stood out and peaked my interest was the lifetime support guarantee and in home training.
After my first training session with Stef I have already seen a positive improvement for Alfie, I can now successfully take out my garbage without him making a sound as well as many other improvements with his overall anxiety and stress. Each day I am working with Alfie to help get a step closer to him being completely calm anytime I have to be away from him so he can learn to be by himself without being in a state of heightened anxiety. Having Stef to learn from and train with has provided amazing support for Alfie and myself . I have been provided me with peace of mind that we can overcome his separation and isolation anxiety.”

Ely, K., Northcote, VIC.

“Stef has been great since she walked in and Teddy responded to her immediately. Her instructions have been easy to follow and I am getting better at controlling his behaviour. Stef is always willing to listen and has encouraged us to ring any time with questions.”

Mary, W., Lower Templestowe, VIC.

“Meisha has improved so much we can’t believe it! Best money we have spent. Stefanie made sure we understood everything and got us all included in the training. She was a pleasure to be around.”

Tayla, C., Greensborough, VIC.

“Very helpful tips to keep our two very energetic dogs under control! Walking the dogs has been significantly easier and encounters with strangers and other dogs are no longer a big issue.”
