It was like a light bulb came on in my head! I have to be the leader - and provide safety, food and entertainment for our pack. I was amazed at Skipper's progress on the first session! I didn't think that was possible with him. I was wrong. It was heartwarming to see the dogs respond in a positive way. Even Skye learned to walk on a leash for the first time! I've already recommended Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors! This training program WORKS! On the first session Skipper responded. I learned to change my bad habits, so I'm in control - NOT the dogs.

It was challenging but the results were quick and amazing! The dogs are already changing.

Clear and concise communication. The results were night and day and we have 5 dogs to work with. The techniques were very compassionate that not only got results but made sense. We had fun. Even my 3 children (ages 15, 13 and 10) had a fun time. Recommend Bark Busters? Absolutely! Dick is amazing and the Bark Buster system works!

Dick was very easy to understand and patient. We observed noticeable results even with our most challenging dog. I would recommend Bark Busters - especially for people that are first time dog owners. Just a great program!

I learned a lot! Dick was very helpful! I am amazed at how effective a simple growling sound can be on my dog's behavior!

Very clear. Ginger was much more attentive to me. I'm not a fan of treat-based or negative punishment based training. I learned a lot. I'm looking forward to working on dog-to-dog aggression

Dick was very helpful, genuine, professional and compassionate. Dick worked within the physical limitations and was positively reinforcing any changes for the better.

Dick's approach was on few techniques so we could understand and implement them. Too many techniques would've been confusing. Riley was more obedient and responsive. This was a paradigm change for us - but necessary for improving Riley's behavior. Riley wants to please - the training gave us tools for positively communicate what we expect.

Sampson and Zoe both did very well. I've already referred Dick to a neighbor.
