Ken & Lynne DeBoer dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Other

Very enjoyable working with Ken. He explained techniques very well and answered all our questions. Oliver did much better with "drop-it", "sit & stay" that first evening. We found the techniques very easy to follow. It was very helpful that the training was done in our home. It allowed Ken to address specific problems with Oliver in our home. Ken was able to tailor the techniques to our specific needs and showed us how to adjust the training as needed.

Ken & Lynne DeBoer dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Toileting Other

After each training session we notice our dog Alice was making better decisions with fewer corrections. We were plesed with the natural training techniques-no shock collars, negative consequences or treats are used. We're learning to help Alice make good decisions based on our body language. Each time we learn more about why Alice behaves the way she does and it helps us understand her behaviors more.

Ken & Lynne DeBoer dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Ken made all the training make sense in a quick and easy manners- not only the techniques but also the "why" they are used. The results after the first lesson were amazing. I would like to say the dog learned so much however I know it was myself who learned the most. No more carrying treats or yanking on a collar to "get his attention". Ken is a wonderful instructor. He had stories and personal experiences to relate all along the session. I have recommended Bark Busters to my daughter.

Very well explained and demonstrated. The growling takes a bit of practice, but it feels great to communicate with my dogs. It is a very kind method of training and effective.

Ken & Lynne DeBoer dealt with: Puppy Management

The training techniques were easy to understand- results were immediate. Breezy understands what is acceptable and what is not without the use of treats. I learned more in the first training lesson with Ken compared to standard dog training books. Price is fair and the results are amazing. Training is fun and enjoyable.

Ken did a great job of explaining what needs to be changed and how to get there. I was very pleased that I saw results right away and if one training does that, I know that long term results are going to last. I read testimonials about seeing a change right away and I was a little skeptical, but it was completely true! I saw a change with my dog instantly when we started to communicate clearly. It is great to finally understand how my dog and I should communicate.

Going through the flip charts first helped us to understand the process even before we put it into practice. It was "magic"- Tobin understood right away what we wanted and it lasted. We were able to pick up and add the learning to more situations the next day. We learned a lot and had fun too. Ken was humorous and friendly.

Very educational-very helpful. We wanted to do right with this dog-new to us at 4 years old. We intend that she is part of our lives for many years! Thank you Ken.

Techniques were explained very well and Ken took the time to answer all questions and came up with solutions. We wish we would have called Bark Busters earlier...it is well worth the money.
