What our Clients are saying about us
When I started fostering dogs I knew my dog wouldn't be happy about it, but I thought she would get used to it. I was wrong, she continued to be aggressive, kept trying to bite them and was very territorial. It was so out of control that I had to send my first foster to a different home thinking maybe she just didn't like other female dogs. When I got a smaller, male dog, she had the same reaction and nothing could get her to accept them. I was ready to give up on my hopes of helping other dogs when I came across Bark Busters. When Ken called me, I expected he'd just get some basic information, tell me the price and set up an appt, but no, Ken actually had a conversation with me, gave me pointers over the phone and did not pressure me into using this service at all. I met with Ken twice and he helped me come to the realization that my relationship with my dog Yuki, would influence how she responds to changes in her environment. It was really simple things, that I never would have thought of and I am so grateful that we met. Now, two months later, I continue to foster and have been able to integrate these dogs into my home without disrupting the household. Yuki can be off leash in the same room as a foster dog, sit next to them and just recently, has begun playing outside with them. While this may not seem like a big deal to most, it has made the biggest difference in our lives and has helped me to continue my passion of fostering and finding homes for unwanted dogs. This was a small investment of time and money, but the rewards are ongoing. Thank you Ken and Barkbusters! You've helped me with my mission to save lives.Teresa G., Montgomery, IllinoisMarch 17 2016
We have had 2 training sessions with Ken Liddell so far! He is very knowledgable and professional! We have a 2 year old shep mix named Rocky. We got him when he was a year old from animal control. He came with a lot of pre-existing issues. Ken is very good with controlling Rocky and fixing those issues. Out of all of the trainers we have gone through I have seen the most improvement by far with ken! Definitely recommend.Rachel S., Channahon, IllinoisFebruary 26 2016
I have a Boxer, Katie that is 2 years old. My grown children finally admitted that they did not enjoy coming over anymore due to owe dog. This information shocked me and made me realize Katie had become our 2 yr old spoiled brat and not a dog. Some how my husbund and I had lost all our common sense, treating a dog like a child. We had a very will fill spoiled boxer. i decided I needed help, ASP, In The House, One On One, I was pretty upset. I reviewed all the information on line and choice Bark Busters. Katie as a puppy had gone to several trainers, programs, and day camps never doing very well. We always just summed it up to " Katie our Clown"! Now I meant business! I contacted Ken Liddell by phone that day and he responded within a timely manner. Within two days, Ken, Katie and I were having our first training session. I was shocked to see how Katie reacted to this training method. Ken seemed to know exactly how to handle both Kate and I. Before the first session was over I understood the program and Kate knew I was in charge. By the time my husband got home I knew well enough to tech him. This means as teachers know I have mastered the program! My husband was amazed! The next day my Daughter and son-in-law came over and were pleasantly surprised. My son upon hearing the wonderful transformation decided to come watch a hockey game. This would never had been possible without the program. Katie, before Ken would be on top of our guests until we put her in a cage. Everyone is proud and happy with Katie! We really appreciate Ken Liddell and Bark Busters!Dawn Curatolo, NapervilleFebruary 18 2012
I really liked Ken's laid back manner. From the moment he came into my home, I could see a difference in my dog, Maggie. By the time the session was complete, I knew I had picked the right service for Maggie. That was last Thursday.....that was 4 days ago and now with Ken's instructions, Maggie has become a very different dog. She's gone from a frisky terrier to a well manner Wheaten. I am truly impressed with the Bark Busters natural methods of training and with the excellent way in which Ken was able to transfer those ideas into a life style for Maggie and me. Thanks Ken...I really appreciate your help and guidance.Peggy Gardner, OswegoJune 22 2009

Ken was very informative. We enjoyed our first lesson as well as learning to effectively train our dog. We were pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters and saw noticeable results by the end of the first training session. I would recommend Bark Busters to anybody in need of dog training. Thank you, Ken!!

We are so impressed and reassured now that we have met Ken Liddell. A wonderful and knowledgeable person from the inside out. We never had expected to gain so much from one afternoon of having a trainer come to our home. We are longtime dog owners, and before we met Ken, thought we knew it all! After spending just a few short hours communicating by telephone and a home visit from Ken, we have gained so much more that we can take with us for a lifetime of happy puppy care. Thank you for everything and expect many referrals and a call from us in the near future!
