Paul Pagano is an exceptional dog trainer. He has completely transformed our home from a crazy house run by spoiled dogs to a peaceful place. We contacted Paul because our two Maltese dogs were barking constantly; struggling with potty training; and embarrassing us whenever we had company. Paul helped us address each issue. Neighbors and friends from the dog park are shocked by the transformation. Our dogs are calm and obedient and most importantly...quiet! Paul is the utmost professional. He is our own local dog whisperer! My husband and I highly recommend Paul and Barkbusters! Thank you, Paul, for teaching us how to lead our dogs.

My husband and I got a dog. She is a foxhound/beagle mix and is a VERY sweet dog...until you leave her alone. She has some separation anxiety. She soils the carpet, pulls my table cloth off my table, jumps up on the counters and knocks stuff over and knocks over the garbage and makes a mess. She also follows you EVERYWHERE when you are home. At first it was cute...then it got annoying. You couldn't even go into the bathroom without her trying to follow you in. Whether you are in there for 1 minute or 10 minutes, when you walk out, there she is...WAITING, as if her world would crumble if you stayed in there a second longer. She follows me down the basement...I can't even open the door without her jumping up and running over: "if YOU'RE going down there, I'm coming with you...PERIOD!" She also jumps up on the bed in the morning after she is let out of her crate and does NOT listen when you try to get her off. You literally have to pick her up to get her off and then close the door. Every morning before work, I feed her - she doesn't eat...she FOLLOWS me around the house, anticipating my walking out the door with my daughter. Like her world is coming to an end...EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I rescued a Great Dane/Black Lab mix...They said he was unadoptable but, I fought for him. I just wanted to give him a chance. He was so out of control that I had him for 3 hrs and had to return him to his original owner...Thats how bad he was at 1 yrs old and 105 lbs and never had proper training you can only imagine nipping and very pushy...I then heard that the owner couldn't take it anymore he detroyed their home ran rampid around the house etc...I couldn't get this dog out of my mind and he was doomed if I didnt do something. The shelter recommended Paul Pagano and in 1 session, I can't believe the difference in Bear...He is so much calmer and he doesn't act out or nip me anymore...He seems so much happier too. I am not a stressed out wreck anymore and we are bonding now...Thank You Paul we saved Bear from Doom and I believe he is going to be a great companion for me...Looking forward to your next visit so you can see how much he's improved!!! Thanks for teaching me and Bear...I am now more knowledgeable on the training process...You are the best!!!

Paul is a great trainer. The first visit he had with us and our (Hyper-Yorkie) Rocky, Paul had him sitting and staying. Wow. He is a great trainer and I have recommended him to others. Thanks Paul for a job well done.

When I adopted a boxer (Tyson) from New Jersey Boxer Rescue, my vet recommended Bark Busters for training. Tyson was a typical nutty young boxer who would grab (and often eat) anything, jump all over everyone, chase other dogs to play with them, and who at one point totally wrecked my house. Paul was amazing with Tyson. I had a new dog in one session. Tyson was immediately calmer, more relaxed, and happier. He understood his place and became more affectionate than ever. After only two sessions, I had a dog who would walk on a leash with his head touching the back of my hand, who would meet another dog and look up at me for direction, and who would stop and sit instantly, with no command from me, if I stopped at a cross street for traffic. I have recommended Paul to all of my friends who have dogs, and one of them who is visiting his mother in Florida just called to tell me that he called Bark Busters there for his mother's dog and he is thrilled with the results. Thanks, Paul, from Barbara and Tyson!

Paul is a simply fantastic trainer as well as a highly personable trainer and representative of Bark Busters. My wife and I are so pleased with how he is helping my Boston terrier, Bo, be as civil and trained as he is naturally cute. Your company is very lucky to have Paul and so are we.
