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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Martin | Mt Hutton

April-07-2015 Bark busters rating

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.
