The training was very informative and helpful, and we've seen immediate results. Keiko was patient, clear, helpful and knowledgeable.

Keiko has been fantastic! She has taught us alot of different techniques and has worked with us and Louie over the past 7 weeks. Keiko is encouraging and very knowledgeable. We are definitely seeing results and Louie is responding well to the training. Keiko has been willing to come back for follow up visits whenever we need her. We would highly recommend Keiko!
I am very happy with Louie's (a year old Cavoodle) progress. He is doing very well. Keep up the good work!

15th August 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
As first time dog owners the session with Keiko was invaluable in providing us with the tools, insights and advice to enable us to drive behaviours with our new puppy, Coco. We took an enormous amount from the training and look forward to working further with Keiko over the coming months.
I was very happy with the way Coco (11 weeks old, Miniature Schnauzer) responded to her first lesson. Looking forward to working further :) Keep up the good work!

Mark was awesome! He helped Caleb and I understand dogs true nature and our Nitro so much more. Nitro would often be hyped and anxious around the house, since Marks visit Nitro has calmed down and retreats to his spot on the couch. There is a lot of work and time that needs to be put into training Nitro, Mark has equipped us with the tools and techniques do this and feel confident whilst doing so. Thanks Mark!
Nitro is a English pointer who was very hyper, reactive to things past his gate and generally running the house hold in a overactive way. lots of small alterations to how the owners communicate and body language and Nitro showed promise even with in the lesson. he's young so a bit of a work in progress but well on the way to being a great dog. Excellent work guys.

Excellent, Super helpful and easy to follow training, and Mark was very friendly and very knowledgeable
This dog is a lovely Jack Russell but an over exuberance to run the show and boss human Mum around by being over exuberant with aggressive play. He'll be a work in progress but certainly showed he can focus on what right on the lesson day. Great work by the owners and they certainly got a grasp of the pack process. Awesome.
5th August 2019Mark Gall dealt with:
Mark was excellent. His manner was incredibly respectful, Mark listened to our concerns and worked to address the issues we were having.
Our dog is a work in progress and we acknowledge we have work to do but Mark gave us a really strong foundation in which to build by explaining behaviour, body language and actions we can take.
Bowie is a Pointer x Sharpie, very anxious of his surroundings and separation and people aggression an issue.
The first part of the lesson was done solely climbing the owners up the pack ladder.
This dog wanted some one in charge as it was too stressful for him.
Stunning turnaround in a very short time.
These owners will be fantastic and know that Bowie can do it well.
27th July 2019Mark Gall dealt with:
Wonderful training. Mark makes it so simple. Definitely noticed a huge change in the dogs within 20 mins. Amazing
3 dogs all older , 4th puppy created the sibling rivalry and mayhem by upsetting the dog box.
A busy household of dogs but all responded when the right technique and focus exercises were used.
We had a couple of phone conversations and a revisit and the dog box is now more relaxed.
24th July 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
We had some common problems with our puppy including barking, jumping, digging etc. After Keiko showed/taught us a few techniques to use with our dog, there was a lot of improvements in his behaviour from the first day of training. This was a big relief for us as Keiko gave us the confidence we lacked in handling our dog in a calm and confident manner. Keiko’s techniques have been very effective since the very first day. We highly recommend Barkbusters/Keiko’s Service and are very grateful for her help.
I am very happy with Gucci's (14 month old Labrador Mastiff cross) progress. He is behaving so much better and everyone is happy including Gucci! Well done all :)

23rd July 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
Keiko is honestly such an amazing trainer and a down to earth person. As soon as she walked in the gate we started training.
It's such a relief to be able to contact her for further help.
We have noticed a dramatic change in our dog Chester, he isn't on edge any more which is a sigh of relief.
And the Bark Busters leads are amazing!
Chester (3.5 year old staffy Kelpie cross) is behaving so much calmer and better. He needed clear rules, boundaries and manners to be taught. I am very happy with his progress. Keep up the good work!
22nd July 2019Keiko Ruwhiu dealt with:
We were very pleased with the training Keiko provided and could see results almost instantly. With ongoing training we should see great results.
Diesel (2.5 year old Labrador cross) was jumping up and not coming when called. But I was very happy with the way he responded to the lesson. Keep up the good work!
