It was amazing! Penny seemed like an entirely different dog! It was amazing that just a few simple changes could make such a difference. We did two rounds of obedience school before Bark Busters and we got WAY more out of our training sessions with Ken. A great investment!

The training makes sense and is easy to do it. Ken used concrete examples as well as real life examples-the examples were specific to our dog. The results with Leland continue to increase daily. We do not like to use punishment and are glad we do not have to use it. Ken is pleasant, likeable and knowledgeable. It is apparent he enjoys his job!

I believe in this program-no negative punishment and it is all on animal behavior. I really could not believe that just in the first lesson that I could see my dog's behavior change.

Ken explained everything very well. I learned a lot and my friend could see also see progress after the first lesson. This is an awesome system and I am very happy that I chose Bark Busters!

We have enjoyed learning how to transform these spoiled dogs into loving well behaved kids!! Our dogs always barked, jumped and became very excited when someone came over. Today for the first time, we walked in our house and there was no barking. We thought we had come into the wrong house...Thank You.

Ken was very thorough and provided excellent examples for us. Our dog is already listening better and we feel like we finally have control. The training is effective and common sense. It makes our home a much more enjoyable place.

I never thought that I would see such improvement so quickly. We are both dog people and love finding new ways to interact with our dog. Ken is a very patient, thorough teacher.

Bark Busters lived up to its reputation. Ken was fantastic- patient, clear, open to hearing questions- and we saw immediate improvements with our dog. Two months ago another trainer called our dog a "crazy dog", a comment that made my heart sink at the time. Ken helped us to understand that Cricket's behavior was normal and better yet, fixable. We are feeling very encouraged and would recommend Ken to anyone!

Ken was very organized.. I liked the visuals and everything was to the point. It was surprising to see Morgan respond so quickly when I used "his language". The training techniques are so simple. I was using too many words and was too stressed with his barking. It is the easiest, simplest way to train a dog- using his language and understanding. Training was great! I really liked Ken De Boer- trainer. He has a calming manner in the way he teaches.
