At Howard County Bark Busters we don't use harsh physical techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior. We engage dogs to use their minds - communicating with them on a level that they understand, using the natural dynamics they understand of voice tones and clear body language.
The best part is --the reason we're able to offer our Life of the Dog Guarantee is because our dog obedience training techniques are proven! We have the knowledge and the skills to diagnose any dog, any age and any issue - even complicated canine behaviors. As we have trained well over 1 million dogs there's no issue we haven't worked with. Puppy training, basic dog training or advanced dog training methods, or all, are included with the Lifetime Guarantee.
I have worked with dogs all my life, and always wanted to spend my second career working as a dog behavior therapist in the area I grew up in, the Nation's capital. I apprenticed with several dog trainers before being introduced to Bark Busters Home Dog Training. I have a graduate degree in clinical psychology and helped change human behavior in my first career lasting over twenty years. I've volunteered since childhood with rescue, service, training, and shelter organizations, and am currently have two rescue dogs (plus a cat), along with taking care of foster dogs.
I became acquainted with Bark Busters in 2005 when a friend became a customer in another state and his dogs' problem behaviors immediately changed for the better. His attempts to explain the methods to me were confusing and I had to experience it for myself to understand. Ove the years I researched many different training methods and was most impressed with the natural dog-friendly system of Bark Busters! I am fortunate to be able to help improve the relationship between owners and dogs, working with the world's premier dog training company, and contributing toward making the families I work with happier ones.

I was having guest for the holiday and concerned about my Staffordshire Terrier's aggression. Marsha Engel made it out before the holiday and taught my family some simple techniques to control his behavior. The holiday went smoothly and we feel much more in control of our dogs behavior!
I was concerned that nothing could be done to stop my dog's aggression towards other dogs, barking, hyperactivity and toileting in the house. Absolutely amazed at the progress already! No accidents since the first lesson!
I was about to give up on my greyhound Apollo because he was destructive in my home and yard. Marsha Engel showed me leadership skills to end his separation anxiety and he is a different dog now. Calm and happy!
Marsha was awesome! She was very professional and super knowledgable about dog behavior. My one year old (rescued) hound mix was giving me such issues (biting, jumping etc). Marsha gave us great training tips and I am looking forward to training my dog everyday!
It's been two months since my first lesson with Marsha Engel of Bark Busters and I couldn't be more pleased. My dog showed alot of improvement right away, but I was skeptical that the changes were permanent. They are! And Marsha is available to help me for my dog's whole life should any problems come back.
I recommend Marsha to anyone who wants a better behaved dog! She's super warm and friendly, and had my dog under control from the moment Marsha first growled (yes, growled!) at her! [Not only that, but she taught me how to growl too!] She explained the Barkbusters method in a way that really made sense, and then trained ME to be a better owner....
My two dogs, who are sister, would get into fights resulting in ER visits and we had reached the point were we thought we would have to rehome one if not both of them, as the fights scared us. After the first lesson with Marsha Engel, they are calmer and have not fought. We are communicating better with them and many other behavior problems have...
My dog barked at anything going by my house, freaked out on leash when she saw another dog, and didn't listen to my commands, though she knew them. Marsha Engel from Bark Busters came out and by the end of the first lesson Roxy was listening and calm around distractions. I can see that these methods will work!
Marsha has been wonderful... We have three kids that are eight, five, and two. Our puppy is now nine months old, forty-six plus pounds, and super energetic. Prior to our first training session our puppy would get super excited when any of our kids ran around. He would nip at them and knock them down. This naturally started making our kids appreh...Kimberly M | Highland, Maryland
