Faith’s affinity for and love of dogs was apparent the moment she walked in the door. The Bark Busters techniques and instructions she demonstrated are sensible and clear and we are seeing a positive response from our pup in a relatively short period of time. Knowing that Faith will continue to support our efforts is very reassuring as we do our “homework” with Milo.
I was so concerned that I would be judged and would feel so embarrassed due to my dogs behaviour. Faith made me feel at ease before she had even arrived at my house. Her communication was fantastic which in turn has helped me train my cheeky dog. The progress is great so far and I have confidence knowing I can always call Faith again in future if I’m having troubles.
I was very reluctant to walk Coco or even take her anywhere due to her unpredictable aggression. WELL! She is not only enjoyable to walk but she is so much happier and calmer in herself. And only after one session! Thanks Faith for your amazing knowledge & patience. Not just with Coco but with us. PS Pepper thanks you too.
We had our first lesson with Faith and as soon as she came into our house we were relaxed. She demonstrated great knowledge and ability in managing our issues with both of our dogs. We were provided with homework and training tools that over the last 2 weeks have seen a great improvement in our dogs behaviour. Faith is professional, friendly and honest. We look forward to working with Faith.
Faith was great I liked that she explained things and the reasons why the dogs do what they do. I found the training straight forward and had some instant results that I was amazed with. I also like that I can contact her any time if I need to. Thank you faith
Great time with Faith. So helpful. we now have a calmer do and a less stressed household. I can't believe how quickly the Bark Busters techniques worked. Thanks a million Faith.
We learnt quite a bit from Faith in regards to dog behaviour diet and training. I have got some training homework to do with my puppy and even though it feels a bit daunting at the moment - I am very hopeful and excited for the future for Luna and our family.
I am very happy to see the change in Jessie on the lead when walking. She drops by my side instantly but she still reacts to other dogs but is easier to reign in. I understand this will take time. It’s only been a week but the signs are good. Thank you Faith.
From the very first conversation with Faith I knew she was the one for us....we then meet her in person for our first visit with our fresh new Frenchy! I feel like Faith is apart of our family already. I loved her approach and she has a very calming nature. Frankie loved her and he learnt a lot within a short time. Our family couldn’t be happier to have found Faith and look forward to meeting with her again.
Faith has such an infectious calming attitude. She had Mili eating out of her hand. Me, she might have to work harder on, ? lol. John and I both thought Milo was a changed boy after she left. We look forward however to our house guests and their dog leaving so we can have time with Mili to implement our new found techniques. Thanks Faith. (ps I didn't give you 5stars because I believe there is always room for improvement, no matter how small or large.)
Faith was very friendly and helpful with training. I learnt things that I didn’t know or had heard of before which is great because I thought I had done everything to help bandit and was out of options. In a week I’ve seen a great deal of improvement. I definitely will recommend to my friends and family because Faith has helped us out a great deal
Faith was excellent, we saw progress within the first session and I received very achievable homework to go through in my own time.
Faith Wild was fantastic with Remy. She calmed him before she even came into the house. He loved Faith and responded well. We all learnt a lot from Faith. She has made a big difference with Remy. Thank you Faith.
Faith made the process of getting starting with dog training enjoyable and easy to follow. Our dog responded straight away and we are clear about what to continue with at home.
Faith was amazing. My husband had been listening to her on the radio for sometime and always brought home her tips for training dogs. So we were so happy to have her in our home and show us first hand how to get the best out of our dog Remy. Remy loved Faith instantly. He didn't bark crazy when she arrived like he has done with everyone else, so she automatically had a calming influence on Remy. Thank you Faith so much.
In just a few days it's like we have a new dog! Miss Vegas is so much nicer to take walking and out to coffee shops. Faith delivered professional advice for us in a fun way and guided us gently to be more confident. We are so grateful for the help Faith has given us in training our dog, Miss Vegas. We highly recommend her services.
I immediately loved Faith, and so did my puppies. Within minutes she had helped us sort out some behavioural issues and all done in a loving and kind way. She has become Aunty Faith to the pups, and I feel a lot more confident that I can call her every step of the way.
We love Faith and the Bark Buster training techniques!! Our household was living in fear and the stress levels were high as our dogs’ fighting was literally out of control... We now feel at peace knowing we have the techniques to apply, enabling us to lead our little wolf-pack ??. We look forward to Faith’s continued support as we strive to create harmony for our household.
Faith was prompt, professional and amazing!
training was amazing, it didn't take much more than 30mins to put the dogs at ease. More importantly Faith was able to pt myself and mother at ease, Faith is a true Dog whisperer. I was a little sceptical and worried about value for money, but honestly it was worth every cent. xxx
Faith is a beautiful, calm human being and the session with her made me feel anything positive could happen with my little stressed dog. Faith leaves you with a huge feeling of achievement. I am and 3rd member of my family to use Faith.
I was very happy with the training Faith provided for myself and Kia. I think the techniques are very clear and Kia appears to respond to them quickly.
Faith has given us lots of tips and techniques to use with our puppy, which are straightforward and easy to follow. Best of all, she demonstrated exactly what to do, and our puppy was a different boy during the time she spent with him. We now know what is possible, and with Faith's help, can work towards this.
I found Faith to be very professional and friendly. She replied to my telephone call to Bark Busters promptly with a volume of information that left no doubt that I had contacted the right dog training organisation for my dog Kia. Faith showed me techniques and explained dog psychology eg the word like BAH that I was initially skeptical of, that worked the first time it was used in conjunction with the correct timing.
Faith came to our farm last week and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Our session was very informative regarding diet, behaviour, training tips and lessons for me to continue with. Even though I have trained dogs before (and horses and pigs) I was at a loss regarding the behaviour of my frenchies. Her technique showed results straight away and I'm looking forward to watching the pups continue to improve. Highly recommend these services! Thanks again Faith
Fantastic. Can't speak highly enough of Faith. Had Max going all the right stuff in a matter of minutes.
Faith was an absolute pleasure to have in our home to teach my and and I more about how our dog lynk thinks and works. I am so grateful to have a heap of tips and tricks up my sleeve to begin training lynk and start to take control of his barking and lead pulling. Thank you again Faith for the great lesson!
Faith thoroughly explained the training techniques, how and why we would be using them easily. I found the information shared both interesting and very enjoyable. I would be happy in recommending Faith to my friends.
First session was excellent. Already seeing improvements in the way our dog listens and behaves.
Faith was patient, understanding and was more than happy to listen to my concerns without judgement. I now feel empowered to continue knowing the result from the first session were so positive. Its simple and easy to understand. I loved listening to such a passionate and positive trainer. Faith is amazing. Answers all my email questions promptly.I have already spoken to friends in need and will always fly the Bark Busters flag.
Faith is very knowledgeable, kind, gentle,competent and experienced, but also very patient. Molly responded immediately. Molly was noticeably calmer and less anxious when walked near barking dogs, plus less barking and umping by her. We chose Bark Busters because the training techniques were based on the feelings of the dog, not just behaviour management. Molly earlier experiences as a puppy caused her issues. Bark Busters has enabled us to better met her needs and this has bought about significant improvements in her behaviours. Thank you Faith - you are amazing !
I had the pleasure of meeting Faith to help us with our 5 yr old Moodle Gypsy. Her passion and dedication is outstanding and I highly recommend Bark Busters and this amazing lady. Gypsy's visitor manners were becoming a problem, barking at the door, jumping up and generally being a watchdog for all noises. Her recall was also causing me grief. I knew I needed to address these concerns before they became big problems. Faith educated me on the importance of Leadership and how Gypsy's mind works. She showed me techniques always with patience and how to speak dog language. She explained the importance of consistency and how and why being a Mother Wolf was needed. I now feel I have the confidence, the knowledge and the ability to understand Gypsy and how to work towards a better behaved dog with awesome manners. I look forward to our home being happier, calmer and a much quieter household. My husband is now in training also. I Bah at him too! A huge Thankyou Faith . Maree & Gypsy.
I was amazed at how quickly my dogs responded to Faith, even when were out in the street, Faith was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Lokki has already stopped jumping up and jumping at the door. I have had a problem with him since though out in the street with his pulling but after about 10 minutes (just before we go back inside) he settled down to some degree. I will not give up though.
Faith made sure we fully understood and gave us the confidence to follow through. Noticeable results immediately - we were quite amazed it was so simple. Faith was very friendly and easy to get on with.
Fantastic training. Faith was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer all of our questions. We saw an improvement in our dog during the first lesson.
The training presented by Faith for us and Abby saw an immediate transformation in Abby's behavior it really was quite an eye opener
Faith was a pleasure to deal with. She put us as much at ease as Huey. Great results for Huey. He caught on really quickly. We were very stressed prior as Huey was a rescue dog with issues we didn't know he had. A lot calmer household.
I enjoyed talking with Faith and have been practising the strategies she gave. Still have a fair bit of training to go but I was happy I gave Bark Busters a ca.
Faith was very patient explaining the training techniques. Walking the next day showed an immense improvement. Faith is very understanding of the 'human' position.
Excellent! Would highly recommend. We all got involved in the training experience which helped Luna settle in. You guys do an amazing job. Keep it up!
It was wonderful to meet Faith today. Her fantastic advice, kindness and support has helped our Charli to be a quiet and happy dog! It was so reassuring to have Faith's support and use her extensive knowledge to help Charli reach her goals and we saw results straight away!!!! I look forward to doing the exercises daily to help Charli continue to reach her happy and relaxed potential!! Thank you Faith :)
The training was excellent and we are seeing great improvement in our dog's behaviour
We had a fantastic experience with Faith this week, our 2 year old Staffie was displaying inappropriate behavior and we felt at a loss with what to do. The difference I saw immediately after Faiths training was amazing, we will keep up our homework and continue to work with the instructions given to us. Faith is very knowledgeable and non judgmental, would definitely recommend this service!
We had Faith visit the house to see our Pug Frank. He was getting very noisy, not walking on his lead properly, He was yelling at everyone that passed the door and being a regular "Bossy Boots". He has calmed down dramatically since Faith has visited and she showed us some good tricks. He is a lot calmer and a lot happier. Thanks Faith . :)
I was totally amazed by how my dogs were behaving in a more acceptable manner. Very happy no physical or emotional punishment. Faith is such a beautiful person and truly loves dogs. She is genuinely working towards the best outcome for owner and dogs. I have already recommended Faith to my sister and a work colleague.
Excellent...clear & informative....behavioural change within the time of the training...enjoying our ongoing training with Betty...thank you Faith.
Faith was a great trainer and very experienced. My dog has gone from a hyperactive dog who is hard to walk to in one day walking is better. Thanks Faith.
Faith was organised, knowledgable, prompt and didn't rush our lesson. She listened to our issues, took notes and then we had theory then a pracitcal lesson. We could see results then and there. We have been practising the last few days. Jack is still pulling on lead sometimes, but with faith s help it's a lot better.
Faith was great at explaining why Eddie was showing specific behaviors and how to prevent these behaviors with very simple and easy to use techniques. We saw a different dog while she was working with him.
Faith was really awesome with Jukes, she took the time to explain all the issues and how to rectify them. She turned Jukes into a new dog in no time, now just up to me to continue on with her good work.
Faith was brilliant. Really knew her stuff and very patient. Explains everything in great detail.
Great first meeting. Speedy appreciated and i appreciated it. We both made great progress in just a couple of hours, Thanks to Faith. =)
Faith was asked to come help us with junior as he has separation anxiety , she has given us great insight and many tools to use with him to help him along . Junior is not one for new people but fell for Faith it was amazing how he trusted her so soon , I feel that with the education and tools we were shown today and putting them to use daily that junior will outgrow his anxiety ,I will keep you updated .
Faith made an appointment within days of me ringing her but not too soon to allow the dogs to settle in. Very thoughtful of her. Very pleased with the training techniques used by Bark Busters and definitely noticed results. I enjoyed the experience and so did the dogs.
Very easy step by step instructions to follow. Great concise techniques. The difference was amazing. The trainer was very personable.
I was very impressed with Faith's knowledge and understanding of dog behaviour. Her approach is very professional, and her manner towards my troubled dog (who is known to bite the occasional stranger), had him relaxed and calm as she demonstrated the training program. I have seen a dramatic change in my dog's behaviour in just 2 weeks. Still a little way to go yet but Faith keeps in touch to monitor progress and offer support
Old dogs can learn new tricks!! Faith, you have helped me so much with your wealth of experience in calming my beautiful big boy ex PD Ajax. So much progress in just two weeks and I suddenly have a calm happy dog...and confident owner! Your out of the box solutions and ideas for a very difficult student have given my boy a new happiness after serving the community for so long. He really is going to enjoy retirement now. Biggest thanks from PD Ajax and myself ðŸ™ŒðŸ¼
Excellent training. Step by step instructions on how to deal with Ruby's barking, dog aggression, etc. We have a different dog.
We can't thank Faith enough! The changes made in a couple of hours is unbelievable. We thought our dog was beyond help but he's a great dog - we just needed to know how to be his pack leader.
Training was presented and demonstrated professionally and friendly manner - Faith is wonderful. Within 15 minutes there was a remarkable difference in puppies barking - amazing. The techniques are easy to use and for the whole family to use, and have a positive effect on dogs. Everyone, including the dogs, benefited from the training. Have already recommended this to 2 different households. Amazing, professional and it works.
Oh my days! I can not thank Faith enough. We have gone from a home with 4 crazy dogs to a home with 4 quiet dogs in just a couple of hours! And I'm not kidding! We were at our wits end knowing what to do with our 2 dogs who absolutely hated each other, had massive fights and were constantly growling at each other - tonight, after Faith's visit this morning, our home is quiet, calm and all dogs are in their own beds behaving themselves! It really is unbelievable and I personally would not have believed it if someone told me the result to expect! It's like night and day in our home tonight! To top it off, Faith is an amazing person, so kind and understanding. Faith, thank you from us all, we are all relieved and happier, you have literally changed our lives.
Faith demonstrates her great love of dogs from the moment she met our Zo. She made us very comfortable with the techniques we have to carry on with to improve our dog's behaviour. Zo is a Jack Russell and can be very stubborn at times but Faith managed Zo magnificently. Faith sure knows her stuff regarding dogs.
I loved that the training was all positive and did not involve scaring or intimidating my dog. My dog was calm and happy through the whole lesson. The training was very easy to understand and the feedback on my technique was very useful. It was interesting to get further insight into my dog's behaviour.
Down to earth and sensible.
Saw results within minutes. Faith knew her stuff and we quickly realised we had not been reading our dogs body language correctly.
It was a great experience to learn how to control my dog. Mitzi was obeying my orders. Very professional and easy to follow.
Faith was fantastic. Ww learnt so much about our dog. The training was more about training us and teaching us to understand how he thinks. His behaviour is so much better already.
Very professional and easy to follow
Very professional and easy to follow
We were sceptical about how successful the training would be but were at the end of our patience with our beautiful but "bossy" boy. Faith instilled confidence from the outset and her natural affinity with dogs shone through. In no time at all we could see an improvement in Clancy's behaviour and although it's early days yet his barking has improved out of sight. He is so much easier to control on his walks and no longer tries to show the other dogs who's the boss. Although it's early days he continues to improve (as do we)! Thank you Faith we would have no hesitation in recommending you and your methods to others.
Thanks Faith for teaching me the skills to reconnect with my dog, you are so easy to talk to and a fantastic teacher. Would recommend you to anyone thanks again Gayle. From Dash thanks Aunty Faith.

Thank you so much Faith for your valued information, patience, love and guidance. It is so wonderful and stress free to now be able to walk Timmy happily without him being reactive and highly aggressive towards other dogs. I would totally recommend Faith to anyone for any problem with a dog. Thank you again.
I am a veterinarian and feel comfortable to now recommend Faith to clients and friends.Training techniques very clear and easy to follow. No punishments or food bribes. Easy to implement. Faith even explained to my five kids! Puppy too young to achieve much immed as short attention span, but noticeable progress.
Very confident with the training Faith taught us. Early days still but already can see improvements in Stellas behavior.
Riley my adorable yet at times stubborn mini - groodle had our first in-home session today with Faith. What a breath of fresh air she is. From the very first moment - both pup & mum were made to feel at ease & the following 3 hours were informative, enlightening, stimulating - & most importantly - enjoyable. We have a long way to go but I now feel a lot more confident with Faith 'having my back' & will definitely be attending the obedience sessions & monthly walks. There are many people providing this service & in my opinion Faith is certainly one of the best. THANKYOU from Riley & I.
Faith is excellent. Clear in explanation, good in demonstrations and kind to my dog. Boo will be a challenge due to the agoraphobia, but we will work with Faith to give her the best chance of being more confident outside. I got a lot out of this session, both on a canine behavioural level and practical level.
Faith was amazing right from the first email, i just felt so comfortable and had hope. Oscar is aggressive due to fear and previous trauma. He has along way to go but simple stuff he has been doing (barking/jumping) has already settled down and he has responded so well to the suggestions. I can't wait to see the outcome in the next few mths. It's nice to have hope after people have suggested giving him away or putting him down. Thats like saying put your kid down, so thank you Faith from Ed & I and Oscar :)
Before we called Faith, our dog was overwhelmed by anything outside of the home - visitors, children, other dogs and definitely cats! Nothing we could do was helping to calm or quieten her down - not even bribing her with treats. So when we called Faith, we thought for sure we would be in for a long and bumpy ride. With a foster kitty in the house, our dog was always agitated but when Faith arrived, within the space of 2 hours, our dog could be in the same room as the cat, was walking calmly on a leash, paying attention to our commands - she was a new dog!! And best of all, the training process was simple and easily duplicated by us. I am so grateful for Faith's help in making our home more calm, quiet and friendly. And it's great to see our little dog's happy personality back!
Extremely happy with Faith's service. She made us feel comfortable before, during and after the session. We saw instant results with our dog DJ. He was extremely scared of strangers, however within 2 days he was happily around strangers and 100% calmer. We couldn't be happier with the results and thank Faith so much.
I felt so much more confident in such a short time. Both dogs are heavier than me and not obedient and had left me feeling out of control, and way down the pecking order. Faith made me feel so much better about what I was capable of and confident about being in control. Faith was as supporting to me as much as to both of my dogs. Thank you so much Faith.
Faith was so calm and patient and the effect of the proper training with Frankie was almost immediate, and it certainly helped me as well. I am very happy with the results, honestly wonderful. Knowing I have someone to contact if I need further help is a great comfort.
Faith was wonderful. So pleased we have met her. She explained everything brilliantly. Noticed results almost instantly.
Faith was excellent in showing and explaining training techniques. I have been shown how to 'control' Loui and this is going to make our lives together pleasant. I had thought "Ha, ha. I'd like to see this, he won't respond". HE DID! Just amazing, I really did not believe it. I have told a friend to contact already. Faith listened to me. I explained dogs history. She was excellent in helping me and WELL wonderful.
Faith was incredible. I have a very sick dog who is also super anxious and wasn't listening to me at all. Faith was kind, supportive, super knowledgable and showed me a way to train Hugo that made me feel like I was no longer lost and we could get through this time. Thank you Faith - you have already made such a huge impact and we are only on day two!
Very pleased with Faith. She follows up after training unlike other trainer we originally got to help.
Faith communicates an intuitive, canine friendly approach, which helped me learn how to connect with my dog. The key is that the techniques are simple and Faith effectively taught me how to apply them with confidence with my dog. Faith's approach is friendly and relaxed with both human and dog. Thank you.
Faith's approach has worked perfectly with our dog Mia. I think this is because the strategy is simple for humans to understand and it is canine logic. My dog, absolutely 'gets it', and our issues about fence barking and crowding people on arrival are now a thing of the past. Thanks so much Faith.
Faith was the perfect therapist for our Coopa. Amazed at result.
Faith has a very calm approach in explaining what to do and my dogs loved her immediately. It is very convenient having Bark Busters come to your home - my dogs were calm and obedient.
Faith's introduction and explanation was excellent and covered my concerns which gave me confidence in her advice. I was amazed by how quickly Teddy responded to training. The techniques are so gentle and the response was immediate. I feel so much more connected with Teddy. We are now closer and more bonded than ever.
Faith was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had no idea how this would work, but within minutes Faith showed us easy treatment and plans. Thank you so much.
With all the helpful advice and information, I feel with the practice of the techniques, I will have a happier dog and I will be more confident with him.
It's early days yet but we are already seeing a huge difference. Changing Sam's diet seems to be working well.
Today was our first visit and I am amazed at the difference. Found it very easy to understand and extremely pleased with the training techniques. It is so easy. The rest is now up to me to carry on Faith's teachings.
I met Faith about 10 years ago at a vet surgery in Noosa where I used to work. When looking for a trainer I stumbled across Bark Busters and was very pleased to find her. I had no idea she was so good at what she does - she is amazing!!! It was like Faith had waved a magic wand and Gidget was a different dog. As a vet nurse I found the experience to be very enjoyable and informative.
Faith explained everything very clearly and she has a very friendly nature towards not only pets but people. Would recommend her highly.
Can't believe how quickly my anxious and sometimes aggressive boarder collie x kelpie puppy calmed down! I am so happy with the change and feel confident to take her out for a walk.
Faith was great and after just two days since her visit we are seeing a huge improvement in barking and behaviour.
