My 1 year old dog Beauty was experiencing separation anxiety to the point she was barking and destroying things when I wasn't home. I have learned that I need to be a leader to her! I would recommend Bark Busters because they knew exactly how to handle my problem. The experience was excellent.

Our four year old Jack Russell Terrier lost the vision in one of her eyes due to an injury. Bark Busters training experience has been more successful than any of the other training techniques we tried. By the end of the first training, barking at doorbells and for attention had greatly lessened. We have also been able to apply the techniques to other issues which have arisen and has been extremely helpful! Carolina's behavior has improved dramatically, her aggression towards other dogs was making it difficult to continue her normal lifestyle after the injury. Now we can take her to restaurants, shops, parks and beaches without having to panic about safety issues that could arise.

We noticed an immediate change in our one and a half year old Staffordshire Terrier and our outlook towards her! We found working with Bark Busters to be an excellent experience and would recommend them to anyone!

My dog Dexter is a Cairn terrier about 18 months old. In an attempt to work off Dexter's puppy energy, I began using a laser light for play. Dexter loved chasing the light - all around the room up and down the stairs. Unfortunately Dexter transferred his play activity to a fixation on lights and shadows. He would bark insistently at any shadow or light reflection on the wall, floor or ceiling. He exhibited this behavior outside during walks also as he would fixate and bark constantly at his own shadow, my shadow or any shadow from any person, plant or object. Dexter's behavior was so extremely disruptive that I was on the verge of finding a new home for him.---I spoke with my vet about Dexter's behavior and she recommended Bark Busters. James came to my home, talked with me and showed me the proper way to handle Dexter. The results were incredible! By the end of our session, I was the "alpha" and Dexter was a well mannered puppy.---A shadow will still occasionally catch his attention, but I now know how to correct him. Barking is at a minimum and walking outside with him is a pleasure versus a chore.

I was about to put my 4 yr old hound mix Lily down because I couldn't control her and I feared for the safety of myself and others. I am very glad that I found Bark Busters before I resorted to that. She is trainable and I just didn't know how to go about it appropriately. Every session I have been able to teach her to do many different things and she has been able to maintain what she has learned. I finally have control over my dog and I didn't have to use punishment to get here. I have enjoyed practicing the communication techniques with her inside and outside. Anyone that could help me with this dog deserves my referral, thanks for all of your help!!

The techniques were very easy to understand and apply. James and Michelle were readily available for any questions we had. By the end of the first session we noticed a HUGE improvement, we already had a good dog, now we have a great dog. I was very glad to learn non-violent ways to teach my dog. Positive reinforcement has always seemed a better way to go for me. It was actually fun working with my 7 year old Lab mix "Sky". She seems to enjoy the time we spend training and is a better dog for it. I recommend Bark Busters on a daily basis to clients at work. I like that Bark Busters stands behind their work for the life of the dog.

Our Jack Russell Terrier puppy named "Jack" was noticeably submissive and in tune with us from the first session. We were glad no treats are used or shock collars etc. We learned a lot about how dogs think and have already referred our neighbors your way for their new puppy. We hope to have a model Jack Russell that will be a Bark Busters walking advertisement!

We were amazed at how quickly we saw results with our 3 year old Lab/Weimaraner mix. What a great job, the training was easy to understand and implement. Thanks for your help the training was worth EVERY PENNY!

We saw results during the first visit. I like that the training is through commands, not excessive amounts of treats or devices like shock-collars. The training is easy to learn and Bark Busters does a great job teaching you and making sure that you are retaining the results that you want. I especially like the e-mails and phone call follow ups. We have 2 dogs, Luke and Sadie, a Mastiff and Pitbull. These are 2 kinds of dogs many people fear, so I realized they needed to be disciplined. Luke was not "my" dog, my boyfriend had him before I moved in. I ignored him, and we never interacted much. Then we got Sadie and she is very excitable. I decided to use Bark Busters over other trainers and since the training began, there is a very noticeable difference with them. Luke and I have bonded, and I can even take all 150lbs of him for an enjoyable walk! I am very pleased with the results thus far, and I know it will only get better because of the continued support of Bark Busters. Thank You!
