Keiko was a wonderful trainer. We have 2 very boisterous Staffy puppies - one is deaf. She demonstrated how to easily manage them with effective behavioural correction techniques. We now have a plan and some hope.

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very pleased with the way both Fez and Subi (6 month old Staffies) responded to the lesson. They were just confused about who made the rules. Great dogs :) Keep up the good work!!

Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with: Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called

Thorough, thoughtful, personalised. I really appreciated Keiko's approach, gentle but firm. She worked with us and our dog towards our own goals and was very knowledgeable; able to answer all my questions in full. I never expected to make so much progress in one day! My Chihuahua puppy was always tugging at the lead on walks but after 5mins practice in the driveway with Keiko guiding us, he was walking perfectly to heel. We also had quick results on door manners and we have a clear plan on what to do each day to continue and develop this good behaviour. I am very happy with Keiko's process and the results.

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Archie (6 month old Chihuahua) responded to the lesson. He did very well! Keep up the good work!!

We were really impressed by Keiko. We saw a different side of our dog within minutes, and today (less than 24 hours later), he is behaving much better already.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Great to hear Bernie (2 year old Collie cross) is doing well! He just needed clear rules and boundaries. Keep up the good work!

We have had very good training session and guidance from Keiko. She makes it easy to train a dog and gives us good strategies and practical tips on how to walk our dog.

She follows up on training visits and willing to accommodate to suit our schedules.

Keiko has a good over knowledge about dogs, and their behaviour patterns and training.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Jasper (2.5 year old German Shepherd) is responding to the training very well. Keep up the good work!

Keiko was very good. We are happy to finally communicate effectively with our dog.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Bella (8 months old Husky cross) responded to the lesson very well. She was just confused. But not any more. Bella is happier now that she understands you and your family better. Keep up the good work :)

This has been great - we have really noticed such a difference in the behavior of both our dogs. It's really important to practice the techniques you learn with your dogs regularly to get the full benefit but when you do it really works.

Trainer note from Keiko:
Jazz (2 year old German Spitz) and Kiki (18 month old Staffy cross) came a long way. It is the result of all your work and your commitment to helping them behave better. Keep up the great work!!

It was quite a lot to learn, but the theories made sense and our dog responded incredibly quickly. They also have a lifetime support guarantee so if we continue to have difficulty/new issues pop up etc. we will always be able to nip it in the bud. We have asked the trainer, Keiko, questions already even though our training session was yesterday and she responded promptly and with a lot of detail. It really is true that it's more about training the humans than the dogs. Thank you for training us and committing to continue to train us!

Trainer note from Keiko:
I was very happy with the way Cali responded to the first lesson. She surprised her mum and dad how quickly she responded. Great job!! Our help is always available whenever you need :)

Keiko Ruwhiu 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 Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

I don't know where to start, Keiko was amazing! Within our first session of 3 hours, we noticed the biggest change in our dog Blaze. Blaze would act quite aggressive towards strangers and visitors to our house, jump up at us, bark at other dogs and noises and run off if we left the ranch-slider open. Since Keiko, Blaze now does not respond aggressively to visitors at the door, he is not barking at strange noises or dogs, he will not jump up on us and we can know walk on our deck with the ranch-slider open and Blaze will not run outside. Within 24 hours Blaze is a different dog and more relaxed and I can only imagine what he will be like as weeks go by continuing training. Thank you Keiko!

Trainer note from Keiko:
Blaze (a year old Greyhound cross) responded to the lesson very well. He needed to understand who is in charge of his pack and there are rules and boundaries. I was very happy to see him relax once he understood that.:) Keep up the good work!

We loved seeing Keiko again and learning how to speak dog again it’s certainly working for us all. We are all really enjoying our walks again now-Sharyn

Trainer note from Keiko:
Was great to see you again since April 2014 :) Our Life Time Support works when you need us any time. Great to see Ollie (Bichon cross, 7 years old) responded immediately. Great student!!
