Nikki put us both at ease and incorporated the answers to our questions while explaining the training. We did notice a difference by the end of training. The Bark Busters techniques are compatible with our philosophy on training. The training was enjoyable. The in-home training with a personal trainer/therapist appears to be more effective for both our dogs and us. We are looking forward to positive, long lasting results.

Nikki was very thorough and gave good exercise. I was very impressed with the 'jumping' techniques used and quite surprised how quickly Willie caught on! The training techniques were quite simple and easy to follow. I think it will be harder to 're-train' me in these new techniques than it will be the dog. It is a comfort knowing I can call for a follow-up in needed. It was great to have a trainer come to the home to see how my dog does in his environment.

I would recommend Bark Busters because it was easy to learn and simple commands that I didn't have to memorize. The exercises were easy. After the first visit, he was better. I was pleased with the natural training techniques; just a small sound can make a big difference. The training experience was interesting and enjoyable. It is great to see such a change on how Mikey reacts with me and other people.

After the first session, my dog paid more attention to me as a leader. The training experience was much more fun than I anticipated. We would recommend Bark Busters because it gives boundaries, guidelines and tools to work with your dog. Nikki did a great job accommodating different owners' learning styles and she was very patient.

We would have no problem dogs if all the owners were trained by this method. Nikki Winchell is just great. It was good to have someone work with our specific problem.

Nikki was very patient, listening to all of my many questions and thoroughly explaining things. I could not believe the results after only a few hours, and I am even more pleased as I put what I've learned into daily life with my dog. I am pleased with the natural training techniques and glad there were no physical corrections needed. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters. Bark Busters training not only teaches the owner how to get good behavior from the dog, it teaches why these techniques work based on how dogs naturally act and learn. When you understand your dog better it is a piece of cake to get them to behave.

We've noticed a difference in Connor! He picked up the 'free' right away that day! We enjoy the fact that we don't have to use a spike collar! I have mentioned Bark Busters and Nikki to everyone who I know has a dog. I'm glad the vet recommended you! I enjoy the idea that we focus on what Connor needs and that it's one-on-one! I also enjoyed how Nikki explains everything to us until we understand!

Nikki explained the training techniques in a way that was easy to follow and understand and made everything make sense seeing it from the dog's perspective. We saw improvements during the training with ourselves and with Bailey. We were pleased with the natural training techniques because it doesn't change the personality of Bailey, which was a concern of ours going into the process. The training was definitely interesting and enjoyable. Nikki is very easy going and helped us make changes! We would recommend Bark Busters because you can see the results right away and it changed my attitude too. I was no longer nervous almost immediately. THANK YOU!
