One neighbour has already said Tilly is a lot quieter, not so much barking
Tilly was a wee Jack Russell with lots to say and do about it.
The clients were previous clients from many years ago but couldn't get on top of Tilly's barking at anything.
Actually an easy dog who's cleverness let her get away with being in charge in the nicest possible way.

Training was really great - Mark was so easy going and extremely knowledgeable, he engaged well with both us and Brachan. He made the whole experience understandable and effortless. Cant believe how quickly Brachan responded. Looking forward to putting in to practice what Mark taught us.
So pleased we were referred by Our Vets to Bark Busters.
Awesome dog but had a bad start to life, committed family to work through the aggressive issues and will still be a work in progresss dog.

I was amazed how quickly my dogs responded to the training. Fantastic. I felt empowered and excited that I could confidently handle my previously difficult dogs. I am so impressed with Mark and thankful. He is easy to talk to and puts you at ease straight away. I will continue with working on my dogs using the techniques I have been taught so I can take my dogs for walks without the struggle and dog aggression that had stopped me walking them. All in 3 hours! Highly recommend and encourage others to take control by calling Mark for not only your sake but also the dog's. The Bark Busters harness and collar gave me more control.
These two dogs are both rescue dogs now in a forever home.
Different issues , one excitable ,one protective and dog aggressive. Still work in progresses but huge inroads in the right direction even after just one session. This owner has had many dogs and tried lots of techniques to work these two past their issues.

Excellent training, great tools and very knowledgeable trainer. It's great having the trainer on hand to help you handle new issues if they arise, always learning!

We frequently recommend Mark Gall of Bark Busters to other dog owners. Mark is the dog whisperer of the century. He made a huge difference to the behaviours that were upsetting us about our Papillion. Mark restored peace to our home because the barking reduced from 90 to 5% overnight. He was excellent and Toto responded to Mark very well. Mark understands dogs and as importantly knows how to teach the owners how to train their own dog. He is a great communicator and uses humour well.
Toto was a great temperament dog but ruled the house and as a slightly nervous dog, reacted to anything close to his environment. Great owners who have taken on board the techniques and reaped the benefits. Well done.

We were very pleased with how the training session went and can already see some good progress in Rick. We were able to understand better how Rick thinks and communicates, and then to recognise how to use this to provide boundaries and rules for him.

Both my husband and I thought our training was remarkably effective in a short period of time, and provided some new and surprising advice in the way we approach our dogs. Within a couple of days, both dogs were far more relaxed and responsive, and we shall definitely continue to work on the many training techniques shown us by Keiko - as they obviously work!

It was good thank you. Helpful.
29th September 2017Mark Gall dealt with:
The three hour training session was amazing. Within the first 10mins of the session I noticed a dramatic change... from a dog that would jump up all over you and be over excited with everything to a dog that was happily sitting at my feet waiting to see what we were doing next. I can now walk my dog happily along the fence line of where stock is without him going at them. He now follows rather than leads when taken on walks! Been amazing at home since our session with Mark. I’m no longer frustrated with him, as I now actually understand that I need to speak his language for him to understand what is right and wrong in the human world. I feel like Kaiser and I are now a team!
Kaiser is a blue heeler and was absolutely full on. living in the country and chasing everything. Great focus now and the client has taken onboard the training techniques . awesome work guys.
