February 12 2014Kurt Schroeder dealt with:
Kurt Schroeder of BarkBusters is absolutely fantastic. Our 2 year old pitbull responded from day one of his teaching and in just three visits, we have achieved a real level of understanding and communication with our dog akin to the likes of what Cesar Milan produces. Our pit thought he owned the house; my wife couldnt walk him because he would pull so hard. Visitors were harassed upon coming in. In three visits that is totally changed. He is quiet, attentive and defers to us whenever people come over.
Contrary to other reviews here, a woman can use these commands with no intimidation at all. My wife who is 5'2" and less than 100 lbs can manage our pit (who is 70 lbs of steel) with little more than her voice.
As far as Kurt is concerned he was always on time (in fact he was usually early). He is very responsive and even measured our progress with a grading system. Like anything else, you get out what you put in and this was a total win for us.
Ask for Kurt by name and you wont be disappointed. Tell him Sean, Melissa and Dexter sent you!

Kurt always was available to help me over the phone when I had a question and also was patient with me when I was doing the wrong thing.

Kurt was very patient with my husband and myself as well as the dogs. Rachel who wouldn't walk outside because she was attacked walked to the site where the attack happened after one session. Very happy with the no treats and that no harsh collars are used. The change in our boxers' behavior is incredible!

Kurt made everything so simple. He showed us how to perform the commands and helped us through our initial struggles without judgement! Before the initial training session was even over both of our dogs were responding greatly to the techniques! We were very happy with the "natural" techniques and the fact that that we did not have to force or "strong arm" our dogs into submission. It was comforting to learn that in a few easy steps training would be easily understood by ourselves and our pups! I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to anyone looking to improve their relationship with their dog! For the first time I was able to take my dogs to the vet without them "causing a scene" or trying to attack the staff! That was only after two weeks and we could not be more grateful for the patience and dedication Kurt had to our situation! Thank You!!!

Kurt was very thorough and detailed with his explanations. Improvements were noticeable almost immediately. I was surprised at how easy the techniques were to use. Very helpful!

A trainer is not only training the dog, but also training the humans. We could not have done this without Kurt Schroeder. The instruction was thorough, calm, and comforting. Follow-up calls were always encouraging. We have a rescue who never had any formal training until we adopted him at age 7 months. He is completely house-trained and crate trained. He is playful without being overwhelming. He respects the boundaries we learned to set. Our house is a peaceful, loving home due to Kurt's conscientious and on-going support. A great big THANK YOU!

Kurt helped to bring balance into our home. We now feel more in control of our dogs. Even after the first session we noticed a big difference and even had family members comment about the difference in our dogs.

Kurt has been incredibly helpful in training our two stubborn dogs. In two visits, we've already seen a huge difference in their obedience and walking. For the first time ever, we are walking them instead of them walking us! Looking forward to the progress we hope to see in the future with Kurt.

Kurt took his time and adjusted what he was doing to my special circumstance.
