Life changing! I contacted Bark Busters because I have two mini Golden Doodles (one, who is six and very well-behaved and one who is one and not so much). Initially, I had an in-depth phone consultation to share my issues and my goals for my dogs. Next, Ben came to my home and taught and explained many of the Bark Busters’ methods. He modeled them and walked me through each step, until I felt confident and was doing things correctly. After, he left, I immediately began practicing and applying the methods with my dogs- with IMMEDIATE results!!!! It was unbelievable to me.
The next day I took my dogs to visit my almost 80 year-old mom. That was another reason I wanted help, was so the dogs wouldn’t jump on her and bruise/cut her frail skin. No one likes to be jumped on by a dog, much less two. Anyway, I got to her house, and they both started toward her. I said the magic sound (that Ben had practiced with me) and both dogs stopped right away and walked away from her. Later, one of my mom’s friend’s visited and both dogs started to bark. Again, I said the magic sound and had to apply one additional method I was taught, and both dogs just sat down on either side of me. They sat there comfortably and didn’t bother my mom or her friend.
Since then, things have been awesome with both dogs. My dogs seem much calmer now. Ben, came again a few weeks later and taught me how to walk my dogs on a leash without them pulling me. He also provided wonderful advice/suggestions on my dogs’ nutrition, thunder anxiety for one and separation anxiety for the other. Knowing that Ben is just a phone call/text away brings me so much peace! Can’t thank him enough for all that he taught and practiced with me!
