Oscar was agressive to any one that came to our house. I was a little sceptical, but after the 1st session Oscar was calmer, and Catharina was able to stand next to us without him being scared and aggressive. We've had 1week of training and he is a much nicer dog to have around, we can show him our affection without getting jumped allover.

Catharina gave very clear, concise instructions and certainly loves her work. Found the training techniques excellent, because they make sense and we owners need training also, even after several dogs, but now in our late 70s. Catharina has been very professional and patient and always there if we have to talk with her. It's great to know that we can contact her, talk with her, and if the need arises she will visit. The harness, training aid etc are great and help with a young, large, excitable rescue dog (which looked smaller in the press photo!).

We recently welcomed a 2 yr Border Collie into our home. We knew he had some issues, mainly separation anxiety The 2nd week of being home (he destroyed the shutters and outdoor doors), we called Bark Busters. Cat was amazing and after 3 hours, you could see the difference in him. Within 48 hrs walking was a pleasure and the other issues also subsiding. The separation will be with him for a while yet I imagine but we are working with this and he doesn't seem too be as stressed, not barking and is settling nicely. Very impressed with him as its only been 2 weeks since Cat and Sue came to the rescue. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you!

And a week later we have two very different dogs. Calm, not jumping at us or anybody that visits. I can open the front door without them want to dash out. And best of all - we can walk them without it being a stressful event, no pulling my arms. Thank you Cat, I honestly didn’t think anything or anybody would be able to help us with our beautiful boys. They are so much more of a pleasure to be with.

Our Portugese Water Dog has been a different pup since my very first session with her, and this has made all of our lives instantly so much better! I had done a heap of research while we had had our puppy, spent so much time working with her on my own, and sought advice previously in Perth, but nothing was working and I was getting very worn out and quite distressed.

Awesome session and Cat was so lovely. The reason I called Bark Busters was because my Mastiff X is fearful of people and can show it by lashing out and it's affecting all of our lives. I needed help to understand his needs. We started with the basics but even that is quite intensive at the start for myself, my partner and Alpha! Lots of homework to practice :-) We can't wait for the next session and work on some other things and keep working towards our goals.

Cat has a wonderfully calm and assertive approach to training that has been incredibly effective and easy to practice. Before she introduced her techniques, our 2 y.o. Labradoodle, Louie, had terrible anxiety and fearfulness of noises and people in the house. He had difficulty following commands and assumed the position of 'pack leader' out of insecurity and lack of leadership. Not a happy role for him! With a simple, consistent command and clear boundaries, it has given him the freedom to be relaxed and happy.

Having Catharina come a help us was the best thing we could have done for us and our 2 wonderful dogs. Walking 2 large breed dogs on my own was becoming a problem with them pulling on the lead and wanting to go see other dogs to the point where I obtained an injury. That was the day I called Catharina. From then on there has been no looking back. Both dogs are now responding with recall and are no longer pulling on the lead while walking. We are working on attentive training which has worked so quickly and I am now enjoying walking them again. We still have a little way to go with the meeting of other dogs but I can see this will be resolved with continued training and support from Catharina. All training has been done with no aggression shown towards the dogs and with only positive reinforcement as a reward. I absolutely recommend for anyone who has an issue with there beautiful dogs to call Catharina and in no time you will see a transformation. Thank-you Catharina

I cannot thank you enough Cat for your assistance, knowledge and professionalism when it comes to dealing with dogs. Well it's been just over a week since Cat came around to give me a few pointers in the right direction. I've had Hutch for only 6 weeks and remember calling her the day I got him saying "have I bitten off more than I can chew?" In re-homing a 14 month old sheep killing Kelpie into a suburban environment. But boy am I so glad that I did, Hutch didn't have major issues, he's obedient, comes when called but it was more his over exuberance around the house and on our daily walks. But thanks to Cat that's now in hand and he's learning the boundaries when it comes to being under the dinning table and in the kitchen. Luckily he's a really smart boy and learns things quickly. He has also not shown as much of an interest in digging monstrous holes in the lawn. And walking on a lead is now a pleasure as opposed to being dragged all over the place. I work at a vet clinic and through word of mouth have recommended Cat to clients struggling with their dogs, but now have first hand experience and will continue to be an advocate for Cat and Bark Busters South West. Thanks again for the magic you have worked with my boy - now can you do the same for my kids? Just remember no matter how big or how small the issue you may have with your dogs behaviour, you're not alone and there is a solution and training to rectify it.

I have had little dogs before and was a little apprehensive about getting bigger dogs. Cat from day one empowered me to be able to train the two puppies I had. She has comprehensive skills and knowledge to tackle any issues that arise. As the dogs grew they developed sibling rivalry, this was very difficult and after trying a range of strategies and many floods of tears we had to make the difficult decision to let one dog go. Cat was so incredibly supportive and always gave a range of options long term and short term, but left the final decision to us. Cat’s patience, kindness and compassion for the owners and the dogs make her the perfect trainer for your dog. I have no hesitation recommending her.

We were at our wits end, didn't know what to do next - barking dogs upset neighbours. We had tried bark collars; sonic bark stop instruments; leaving music on when we were out, the list goes on. In desperation I phoned the vet to see if there was anyone in our area who trained dogs, they suggested Bark Busters. I made the call right away and on the 21.9.17 met Catharina (Cat) Baljeu, a very special person. We can now leave the house without our dogs barking and the neighbours complaining. Our dogs are more content and not suffering from separation anxiety. Cat told me about the benefits of considering a raw food diet for them and gave me strategies with which to train Bess and I am happy to say everything is working beautifully.

Excellent, immediate change in pups behaviour. More obedient and understanding of the pack hierarchy.

Cat has got my dog and l speaking the same language. Walking is now relaxing. Kimba has stopped pulling. The harness works better than a choker with no stress on the neck. Kimba was a difficult dog at obedience classes but is now calm and focused. Dog training has become enjoyable. Thanks Cat.

Jinty was a rescue dog and had very little training. When Catharina first came she/we established some rules around walking on leash and aggression towards other dogs. Over the past 12 months, Jinty has been great, but all training requires constant input from the owner and unfortunately I got a little slack. One contact with Catharina and she was back to refresh Jinty and I. Catharina is great, understands animals, and just as importantly humans!! I would recommend Catharina and the Bark Busters method of training to anyone.

I was at my wits end, I thought we would need to lose one if not both dogs. I thought one was completely un-trainable. I had tried a number of different methods and asked advice, nothing worked. Within the first 1/2 hour, Cat had my dog doing things that I had been unable to achieve for over a year. It all made sense, what I had to do and how to achieve it. I feel supported as I can call any time if I have an issue and don't know what to do. The children and a friend even noticed from day one how they have both changed and how much more relaxed naughty dog number 1 is.

Cat's training methods have completely changed the way we interact with our dogs, and almost overnight our household became much more relaxed. Cooper, our 17 week old pup, was having issues with aggression whenever he was adrenalised. After only a few days he is much easier to calm down and no longer snaps. The rough play he and big sister, Tara, were engaging in has settled down to a manageable level and I'm sure it will only continue to get better! By day two, Tara was walking perfectly on a loose lead and our daily walks have been such a joy compared to the way they were in the past. No more pulling and constant sniff stops. Both of the dogs are learning boundaries within the house. They are happy to sit on the edge of the kitchen when food is being prepared, even when it's their own meal time, instead of getting under our feet. We're still working hard on our front door training - visitors are exciting! - but they're slowly improving and are eager to please so I'm confident we'll have it nailed in no time. Training using Cat's method is so much fun. We're seeing such rapid improvement in the dogs' behaviour overall that training is no longer a chore. I can't wait until we're at the stage where Tara and Cooper can socialise with other dogs at the park. Because we back on to a busy dog park, one of Tara's biggest issues was fence guarding. She would bark incessantly at the park's busiest times, causing her a great deal of stress as other dogs frequently try to dig under our fence to get to her. Now, after only one lesson with Cat, Tara barks once and can quickly be stopped and called away from the fence and into the house without any issues. Thank you, Cat, for your invaluable advice. We're looking forward to our next lesson and doggie meetups in the future!

I wished I had found Cat sooner!!! I have been struggling for 4 years with Banjo being very reactive with other dogs, pulling on the lead and barking when excited. After one lesson with Cat, Banjo changed overnight it was incredible the difference. No longer pulls, walks off lead at my side, waits quietly when asked. He is getting better everyday and I can see he is a happier dog, always licking his lips when we are out and he is more focused on me. We discussed his diet and I have made changes to that also and included a supplement. I felt Cat was very easy to understand and made me feel comfortable getting the hang of the methods. I'm looking forward to Banjo's happy future as I feel I'm finally talking his language. 🐾💞

Cat was absolutely amazing with Princess. Princess has some dog aggression issues and a few little things going on with her behavior. Cat came in, explained everything very clearly and in a way I understood. After the first session with Cat I saw a massive improvement with Princess and how we can communicate better and I now have a better understanding of my dog and the way she thinks. I'm really looking forward to my next session with Cat and continuing to build a better understanding with my girl .Without Cat I wouldn't be able to do that. I can't say enough good things about her! I'm over the moon I found someone who is not only caring, but who has the tools and understanding to properly help us.

Cat came out to help us with our Mastiff x Staffy who pulls on the lead, has fence aggression and other various issues. Its only been two days since her first visit and the shift in control has been amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about getting the issues with their fur friend sorted once and for all. My partner was skeptical that Monty could ever be saved and he has been completely amazed by the changes....look forward to the next lesson and to continue this progress to get him where we need to be :)

We where amazed at how quickly and effectively Cat showed us how to improve Ruby's behaviour. Ruby is a 2 year old Red Heeler dog, who was very dominant and lack direction. Cat explained how to redirect her and enable Ruby to focus on the task at hand. We have had 2 x Red Heelers before so we knew what to expect but Ruby's behaviour was very different. In the space of 10 days Ruby has stopped jumping up, nipping and being aggressive to our 16 year old blind Red Heeler. The change is amazing - we knew she had potential but so far we are thrilled with her improvements. Thanks Cat for doing such a great job both with Ruby & us - look forward to seeing further improvements.

Cat was so wonderful - not only did she show us how to train Ruby but showed us how we could be successful at it. Family and friends have commented on how calmer Ruby seems to be now. We are continuing the daily training and still have a way to go but the improvement is remarkable. Cat was really thorough and answered all our questions and patiently showed us again and again until we got it right - so that Ruby received the right instruction and commands to refocus her. Thanks Cat - looking forward to the next session.

Catharina spent so much time with us to thoroughly cover all areas of concern with our dog, Rico. She made sure my partner and I were both on the same page and walked us through everything, at our own pace. I was super impressed with her knowledge of all things dog, and have taken on board all she said. She was in no way pushy or overpowering. And last but not least the lifetime guarantee is awesome.

It was great to go through all the information on how a dog thinks. We learnt what to to do with our dog and the right way to teach him. The harness is working a great and Enzo is getting much better at not pulling. We still have work to do but. It was also good to have explained how a dog sees things and how we can teach him with the right techniques.

I had the 1st training lesson with cat just before Easter with my French Bulldog named Chase it was so good to have a refreshing approach to dog training. We went away for the Easter break and it was the first time that my dog has been socialised, it was brilliant to be able to take the training that Cat had shown me and put them into practice immediately and also on top of that going away on a holiday and having to try a lot of first things for the first time. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance Cat I look forward to having more training sessions with you in the future. I will be doing my 7 days straight training with him 10 to 20 minutes a day so very exciting to be able to do something so enjoyable with my new puppy and be able to have him happy and comfortable and also rely on the support that I know that he will be doing what he's asked.

She responded immediately to a query I had with a change in behaviour afterwards, and her advice was again helpful. After two days of training our dog's behaviour has improved 100% and I can't wait to take it further. I am so glad I made the phone call. Have already recommended the service to another.

We had our first session with Catharina yesterday and she went through some important things we need to know on how to train our American Staffy. Firstly she sat down with me and partner and went over some information in regards to the concerns with have Diesel, how dogs think, why they behave certain ways, what we need to do in particular situations etc. Next Catharina met Diesel and then started to train us and Diesel in the areas we have concerns in. Overall the session went for about 2 and a half hours and already I can see a difference in Diesels behaviour. Catharina is so friendly and knowledgable and I can't wait for our next session with her :)
