Was unhappy with conventional dog training clubs and so used Bark Busters in February, 1996 in Sydney. Moving to country was able to have phone conversations with Martin ( the lifetime guarantee ). Decided time to invest in upgrading my training with new puppy and love the new equipment and ideas. Our dogs and cats are fed raw meat and bones, chicken carcases and raw eggs, veg and fruit. What they eat contributes to their health and wellbeing and interaction with other livestock.
After one lesson we can see the difference in Molly, it's like peace has returned to our home. We are enjoying Molly and our time with her. What a lovely man - Molly doesn't normally like men but she could see Martin's authority and his kindness to her and reacted well to him. Thank you.
The training is helping with myself and Chloe. She is doing a lot better than I thought she would at this time. Chloe was very sulky to start off and is improving quite a bit.
Martin was very patient with us and very helpful in ensuring we understand the training techniques. We noticed instant changes, however, it does feel like Shiloh knows when she is being trained. The positive reinforcement is great. Martin was extremely friendly and easy to communicate with. Also very informative.
Marked improvement during day 1. Already less noise and stays on stairs until called.
Martin was amazing, he was easy to talk to and understanding. I feel relieved knowing Chester is getting training that helps!
Martin was a lifesaver! After feelings of frustration with Oscar due to his poor/attention seeking behaviours, and dealing with 2 young children, whilst trying to deal with a 6 month old puppy, I was feeling deflated and not enjoying Oscar as much as I wanted to. After being with Martin for 2 hours, I feel so optimistic and relieved that I have been given the appropriate tools to effectively train Oscar so that we can enjoy our pup the way we should! Thank you Martin.
Very happy we contacted Bark Busters. Kelly was so nice and supportive on the phone and Martin is so calm and confident teaching all of us (humans especially)!
Marty is great! Everything was explained verbally and visually. He gave us the skills and confidence; using techniques that aren't food orientated etc was great. It was almost like a totally different dog by the end of training. We look forward to meeting with Marty again.
Neighbours are impressed. Different dog next day.
It was like having my eyes opened. I now believe I provide a sense of safety and security for puppy by providing leadership and he responds with obedience and good company.
Martin was excellent. Could really tell he enjoys what he does. Was surprised at the results
Absolutely shocked and amazed by the immediate change in behaviours! Could not be happier!
Don was responsive and attentive to the training. Marty made me feel more confident and at ease with Don with his very calm and respectful manner.
Martin talked and explained everything to us. There were immediate results, Blue Belle is a totally different dog now. Easy to follow techniques, we learned a lot.
Bark Busters achieved everything it claimed. . The results are amazing ! When you see results happen quickly, it helps to make the experience very enjoyable. Marty's training delivery was excellent, which made it easy to follow. I was pleased with the training techniques used, it was much more simpler than I had released and it worked quickly. I was amazed how quickly Roxy improved. It was almost immediate. Roxy is improving every day.
Marty explained everything in a very understandable way.How a dogs thinks and why they do what they do. Was very interesting. I saw noticeable results after the first lesson and it was a very enjoyable experience. Looking forward to our second visit Marty.
Can tell already that this will improve Teddy's behaviour. Martin made it easy to understand and follow instructions. By the end Teddy was very well behaved, listening and obeying. We liked that treats or aggression were not used. Enjoyed working with Martin on improving Teddy's behaviour.
Martin was really good with billy and explained all training very clearly
We can already notice a big difference with Sophie, thank you!!
Martin was referred to us by a previous client. We found Martin wonderful and would recommend him again. Fantastic service.
Martin was remarkable at showing us how to train easily and without stress.
Thank you Martin. You have helped us so much, we really appreciate it.
Everything was explained very well. Almost straight away my dog, Neo, was paying better attention to me. It was fun and interesting and I can see my training with Neo will be fun. This is my second time with Bark Busters. It's the best training.
I am so glad I engaged Martin/Bark Busters. Martin was very thorough,clear and patient.excellent results overall. I needed as much training as Barkley LOL but it was necessary and worth it.
Marty explained the training techniques that were very easy to follow and I was very pleased with the results! It was both interesting and most enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend Marty and this service to my family & friends.
Martin was clear and concise and very amiable and easy to talk to. Everything he said made a great deal of sense. I definitely noticed results by the end of the first training session.I found the techniques easy to follow and appreciate the backup training checklist.
The difference was night and day ! Martin explained himself wonderfully. The techniques were simple to follow and understand.The experience was very enjoyable.
Fantastic ... noticable results immediately. Feeling very confident and positive about the future for Oscar and I
We used Martin with our last dog and found him great. Our friend used Bark Busters after my recommendation last time.
Martin was very helpful and patient with both Marcie and us. There were instant results within the first consultation and we were given exercises to complete before our next session, as well as some supportive reading material.
Great. Martin had the respect of our dog immediately and trained us how to gain this also. He followed a set format which we can adapt to any situation/behavior we want to manage.
Noticed a huge difference in our 2 dogs by end of first session. Such a relief as their barking was becoming a neighbourhood issue and all other options had failed. Great to be able to do in own home and Martin is not judgmental which is so nice. Feel so relieved/empowered, wish I had contacted ages ago.
Excellent throughout. I was very anxious when I first made contact, and I was very grateful that Martin could accommodate me so soon. As soon as he arrived his attitude made me feel confident that he clearly knew what he was doing. He explained how the training worked clearly and I learnt a number of things I had never heard before. His training techniques worked immediately and he listened to the problems I wanted addressed and acted on these problems. I enjoyed his attitude throughout and he always explained why techniques worked and why other techniques would not. When I made errors he explained why what I had done had not worked and showed me the correct way. I think the single biggest outcome and the most important thing Martin has taught me is how to be the 'top dog' in the household. I have used the technique he showed me to achieve this with other problems, and Sunny's general obedience has improved considerably. I'm looking forward to the next session just because there was so much for me to relearn.
Martin was very professional, on time and pleasant to deal with. The dogs responded well, and techniques will be easy to remember for reinforcement. Understanding the reasons why the dogs behaviour is like it is was very informative.
We found Marty to be very informative and his instructions were very easy to follow. He formed an immediate rapport with us and with Timmy. We noticed a dramatic change in Timmy within the first half hour of training and would highly recommend Marty to friends and colleagues.
Marty was extremely good in all aspects from professionalism to training expertise to presentation. Highly recommend to all friends.
