We really enjoyed the training session and the understanding of how our boy interprets our commands

Trainer note from Mark:
Bruce is a mastiff ,possibly cross and has not a lot of attention or training by previous owners , number 3 or 4 from memory. Now in a forever home and doing well . I was called in for his pulling ,also social skills, and puppy behaviour even though hes not a puppy , May not have had a puppyhood. He responded well and the owners took the info and applied it well. Looking forward to catching up in a few weeks.

Mark was absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable, nonjudgmental, listened to our concerns, took the time to explain how to address these issues and why in this particular way, as well as spent time putting the learning into practice. Simple, yet effective techniques used. Just within the session we saw a huge improvement which gave us encouragement to really follow through with the daily programming/homework. We feel really supported in the journey ahead.

Trainer note from Mark:
Louie is a Tibetan Mastif with a big bark at any noise , any movement .
lovely nature but really did think he was boss.
The owners put the techniques into play and Louie responded to our speakdog program almost instantly. He will be a little bit of a work in progress but great forward steps already.
Awesome work guys ,keep it up.

In the past the council has forced us to use a shock collar due to anxiety barking, this created visible agression signs with other dogs. When doing the quiz online I realised there were more issues than I was aware of.... so getting a hold of Mark Gall was great! We all enjoyed our 3 hour training session, very hands on and direct which was awesome. Mark was patient and friendly but also firm and set boundries well,... including boundries for the housemates. worked on more issues than what i had expected.

Trainer note from Mark:
Great people who put in place what was asked and the results show. Great work guys.

Mark was awesome. We are amazed at the huge changes in our dogs after just one visit.

Trainer note from Mark:
These Jack Russells from Cormwell have a lot of issues. the younger was developing strong sibling rivalry in certain situations ,separation anxiety from the human mum, the older dog was a barker at everything and dog aggressive issues.
Both dogs responded awesomely ,even with our 2-3 hours session,to our training techniques and the owners did too.
I will follow up on these dogs as the problems were becoming very serious
Great work guys keep up the daily 20min.

Mark was great from the moment the dogs saw him. Kobe is a nervous wee boy especially around unfamiliar males and is a rescue pup. By the end of the session Mark and Kobe were best buds. Dexter is jumpy and whiny and by using the techniques, both boys listen and are so much calmer. We decided to use a dog trainer as our boys have had some nasty fights, one being the week before Mark arrived where one ended up having stitches. We still have a long way to go, but with perseverance, and the techniques we have learnt, our babies will be perfectly behaved in no time! Thank you so much Mark, I am no longer nervous to leave my pups alone, or worried about the potential fights between them! I’m also so happy that I can email/text or call at any point if I need too!

Trainer note from Mark:
These two boys are a bit chalk and cheese but Dexter a Rotty push but calm Kobes mixed bully breed ,nervous temperament meant he got stressed easily and several factors the owners were doing had given them the idea they could both be bosses Sibling rivalry was the major issue but other problems contributed.
They both did awesomely well as did the household of 5 adults.
Fantastic work guys ,

Brilliant in every way possible. Really informative, clear and precise instruction. Kindness and care were taken with dog and with us as owners. Results were quick! I would recommend to anyone who is needing a brilliant obedience trainer who does not require treats to get a dog to do the right thing and does it in a manner that is calm and leaves our dog very happy.

Trainer note from Mark:
Neo was a very full on excitable boy. Adrenaline to the max and all about him continuously.
He responded well to our focus exercises and now its just up to the owners to do the 20min a day and keep his reset button on them and not the party in his head. Very clever boy who tests a lot.
Great work guys. you'll be awesome

The session we had with Mark was fantastic. The face-to-face training with Mark/ourselves and Mishka was incredibly valuable. Mark has a very calm style of training and was able to show us, then watch and correct us so we knew exactly what to do. Mishka has reacted so well to the training already. She's so much less anxious and more attentive. She seems to have completely stopped the fence rushing and barking already - after just one day. The notes and information provided will be an excellent reminder for us to keep up the training. Thank you Mark!

Trainer note from Mark:
Mishka was a very anxious Visla who was trying to protect her kids and pack with having the correct leadership temperament. Taught a bit of speakdog and now she's looking ,listening letting the owners be in charge. Great effort Hoomans, Nice focus Mishka.

Excellent session conducted in a calm, professional manner. Everything was explained extremely clearly and in logically. We were most impressed. Toby responded well to all that Mark showed us. Our household is now quieter and preparation for walks more pleasant.

Trainer note from Mark:
Toby is an English springer spaniel who is highly excitable. Walk preparation was a nightmare , barky noisy, The owners did well in learning the key of working at low adrenaline, both them and the dog. Keep us updated
Great work guys.

Had a great session with Mark, fantastic service and learnt a lot about dog behaviour and how to correct any issues. The time was very relaxed and my family and I got plenty of questions answered and Lunah was a much happier dog at the end of the time. We feel we have the right tools to keep training Lunah now, would totally reccomend Mark and Bark Busters.

Trainer note from Mark:
Great focus work from Lunah. Lunah is a Staffy cross from SPCA and little known to the new owners , highly dog reactive and aggressive. She responded awesomely and although still a work in progress she is now walkable . The family are dedicated to work her through and give her a relaxed life.
Well done all of you.
