Alison has made an incredible difference with our three dogs. Before Bark Busters, our American bull dog, Jasper, was a jumping, nipping leash pulling maniac. Now he's far more subdued, polite and respectful of humans -- an absolute joy to be around. She is an incredible trainer with a sixth sense for understanding pack law and communicating with animals of all kinds.

I'm so glad I married her almost 18 years ago; she's the best thing that ever happened to me and our dogs.

Alison was very clear and offered anecdotal examples. My dog Marcus became more submissive. I can see that this will be a successful method of training so long as we do our homework. The natural training techniques are simple, but powerful. I can't wait until Marcus accomplishes our goals - we're excited!

Thanks so much for your time today. My husband is so impressed with the progress in Carson already!! We did the ignoring thing when he came home tonight, and Carson settled down right away. I walked him when we got home from Wintergreen and he stayed right by my side as if I'd said "heel" almost the whole time. I am impressed!! He was wonderful in playing fetch tonight, whereas he usually "beats" me to the ball after retrieving it and dropping it, he tries to get it back. After one growl by me, he leaves it alone now for me to pick up after I say drop it. Up and down stairs, in and out of doors, etc. is all going well. We will be diligent to do homework. Wayne and I are going to sit down tomorrow night so I can go over what you told me, so we both are on the same page.

The training was very thorough, practical and educational. I absolutely saw noticeable results after the end of the training. Alison was always available when I had questions or problems and helped put my mind at ease about the behavior my dog would exhibit.

Alison was awesome! She was a great observer, and really engaged the children in the training. So far so good; Ella seems to really be getting it!

Cinder, my aggressive girl, has been very responsive to training and is now very meek and eager to please. The Bark Busters training has helped me read my dogs and understand them. I am getting better at identifying when they are being submissive and when they are trying to lead.

Alison was very professional and she introduced the techniques in an easy to follow way. I've seen great results in just a few weeks, even with my five month old puppy. I would recommend Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors.

The techniques used were great and used without force. It completely got my dogs attention without scaring him.

Alison was very helpful with great communication skills. We observed great results from the training from our big dominant dog, the results were impressive. We were very pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters. Learning to control our dog without having to be physical to achieve our goal is wonderful. Alison is a great trainer who is very knowledgeable and is a people and dog person. We have already told our vet and neighbors about Bark Busters. It has been a totally enjoyable experience and would recommend Alison and Bark Busters to any dog owner.
