Kathy Plourde dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

I really appreciate that you created an outline recapping the behaviors we need to work on. Our session has made a notable difference with Ruckus already, I should say Scott and myself. Thank you so much for all the great guidance.  You are just amazing and a very gifted teacher!

Kathy came to my house and taught me how to teach my dog what to do in a way he would understand. Very interesting and effective!! This training makes so much sense! I saw a difference in Charlie on the 1st lesson! I am so happy to know I will have a well behaved dog! Everyone needs Kathy to come over to help them with their dog!

I just now looked at your website and have to sing the praises for Kathy! She started with our "high maintenance" Chihuahua, Peanut, in 2005. He was a little terror, and in just one session, she got him to behave and follow directions. She worked very hard on the humans who probably needed the behavior adjustment more than the dog did! We called for "refresher" sessions, both dog and human, in 2008 and last month with the usual outstanding results. We highly recommend Kathy to all in need. She is the BEST, and even Peanut loves her.

Kathy was helpful and insightful, had lots of good useful information. Very knowledgeable and was able to diagnose issues with Gus immediately. Great service!

Our dogs has us, me especially, well trained! Now we understand that we are the leaders and we make up the rules, not the dogs. It's going to be fun for us to remember our training, so that we can in fact lead. Thanks you!

From the short time Kathy came into our home until she left, our dog, Sparky, changed from a dog that was confused and defiant to a well-behaved, relaxed happy guy. I think the training Kathy did to us humans in order to better understand canine language made all the difference.

What a difference a day makes! I am amazed at how simple and easy this method was for me to learn how to relate to my dog. Amber has responded remarkably. She understands she doesn't have to jump up to get my attention. This is great!

40 years as a dog owner and 30 years as a veterinarian did not prepare me for the problems we had with this dog. Two lessons with Bark Busters made her a new and vastly improved member of our household. Words can't tell you how pleased we all are with the changes! I wish I had used you first instead of taking 20 weeks of traditional training with her.

What a wonderful experience! Kathy helped us understand how our dog, Clyde, thinks and within the first 15 minutes of using the Bark Busters tecdhniques, Clyde responded. No more rushing the door and jumping on our guests -- we are thrilled!

Today was my first day of training w/ Bark Busters. I brought home a 3 year old rescue golden 2 days ago. "Molly" is a great dog but has separation anxiety, pulls on a leash like she is training for the Idderod, and does not seem to like my cats. Just today, we have worked on front door manners, walking on a leash, and meeting the resident cats. Everything went amazingly well. I am very pleased with Kathy's expertise and patience. I am already noticing a difference in Molly. She is mentally tired out from her fist session but much better behaved because of it. I am looking forward to our next session and a more well mannered member of the family.
