Welcome to Bark Busters Madison where we provide in home dog training for you and your dog... one-on-one!
Welcome. If you have arrived at my website, your dog must be having some issues … no worry, every dog does! For more than 10 years as a Bark Busters dog trainer and behavior therapist, I have successfully trained thousands of dogs throughout Madison, WI and Dane County. My name is Greg Reetz and I would be happy to talk to you personally about your dog(s) and family situation and how we can help bring some peace and harmony to your household.
How do I know I can train your dog?
We teach you to communicate with your dog. The reason your dog doesn’t understand what you are saying is because of a failure to communicate. You speak English and your dog speaks, well dog. Dogs learn to communicate from their Mom using body gestures (tail up or down, head up or down, etc.) and voice commands (barking, growling). They don’t speak English or use clickers, prongs or treats. One of the reasons our Bark Busters dog training techniques are so successful is because we teach you how to get your dog to listen to you in a language he understands. As you and you dog begin to develop a relationship based on you being the leader and the “Top Dog”, your dog will no longer vie for control.
"Greg was exceptional working with my dog Blitzen who is a stubborn Siberian Husky/White German Shepherd mix puppy. We needed Greg to help my son and I get a handle on our 8-month-old 75-pound puppy that is sweet but just a huge strong handful. Greg was instrumental in helping us to get Blitzen to understand we are alpha and that he didn’t run the house.” - Beth B.
You will see results during the first lesson. Once your dog respects you as the alpha dog, you will see immediate results in your dog’s behavior during the first lesson. Practice the training exercises for 10 – 15 minutes/day and you will be well on your way to a well-behaved dog.
"Greg gave us so much information during the home visit.Within moments of him being there we saw changes in our dog Moose, He gave us wonderful tools and also encouragement about the training we were about to do with Moose.” - Shannon R.
Our methods often succeed where others fail. Not only is Bark Busters vet recommended, but our dog training methods often succeed where others fail. In fact, other trainers refer our services because their methods aren’t equipped to handle some of the tough dog issues like aggression and sibling rivalry.
"I have had a few trainers come out and try to get Fifi to behave with no luck and great expense. I heard about Bark Busters through a friend and their lifetime guarantee, so I decided I’d give them a try. Greg has helped immensely to get her under control.” - Minerva M.
We only use positive methods – no punishment or force. Aggression often breeds aggression. That’s why Bark Busters uses only positive reinforcement to get your dog to focus and establish a relationship based on trust, loyalty and respect.
