I had Greg come in to help me with Dallas pulling on the leash during walks. When Greg came over, he didn't immediately jump into the training right away. Greg sat down and talked to me about leadership with the dog and things that I can start doing to mentally become leader. When we started training, Greg was really excellent because he would demonstrate and then have me do it. The key was for Dallas to listen to me, not just him. Not only did I learn so much in just one session so far, but Dallas loved him and the best part is that he loved her. Greg is so beyond wonderful with dogs and I know that at the end of this training I will know that if I wanted to, Dallas would walk next to me even without a leash. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Jumping up, Pulling
Hackettstown | June 24 2012
Greg is certainly impressive on his XM radio show on the Martha Stewart channel - he seems to have a passion for dog training and truly cares about the people who call-in to his show. We also liked his appearances with Martha on her show - again, he impressed us. So, we decided to take a chance and see if this guy is "the real deal" who could "practice what he preaches". Is it all just a show or could Greg really deliver? After contacting Greg thru Bark Busters and viewing the videos he sent to familiarize us with himself and the Bark Busters philosophy and program, we expected a good initial training sesssion with our dalmatian, Holly. Well, what Greg delivered was a GREAT training session - we were amazed and impressed to say the least, especially dealing with the aggression that Holly exhibits towards other dogs. He was professional, courteous, and enthusiastic. He was totally devoted to the training session and worked really well with Holly and us so that she can be the best dog she can be. We felt at ease with Greg from the start and without realizing it at first, he began passive training immediately while he introduced the Bark Busters program; he ignored Holly's barks for attention while observing our discipline measures. He demonstrated the techniques, made sure we were comfortable using them, and answered all of our questions. Greg was calm, patient, and made it a fun and reassuring experience that WE COULD DO THIS! We never felt rushed or that he was watching the clock. He gave us a hand-written, customized program before he left and all the 1:1 support we could possibly want. It is so common today, it seems, to be disappointed, frustrated, and stressed-out from the lack of customer care and service. This experience renewed our faith that there are individuals out there who are passionate about what they do and truly care about their customers. Greg actually got excited when Holly began responding to his training, and he was obviously pleased to see that we were "wowed" that it was working (so fast). We're not sure if all the trainers are like Greg, but he certainly has a gift/talent for working with people and their dogs. We honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience, and before Greg left, he got us excited about future training possibilities. Greg is certainly an asset to Bark Busters, and we would recommend him and Bark Busters to anyone looking for a trainer. Thanks for everything, Greg! Permalink

Greg helped us tame our timid, but great-hearted Buddy - a beagle mix. Poor Buddy would take out his anxiety by chewing rugs, pillows, shoes, crates - anything when we left him alone. After a single session with Greg, teaching 'us' the right way to stimulate Buddy when we were around, we can now leave him in the house without worry. We've had Greg come back for loose leash lessons and other issues we were having. Always felt like he went beyond what he needed to do, but just did what was best for our dog! We see Greg as extension of Buddy's care. We have a vet for his physical well being and we have Greg for Buddy's mental & behavioral well being! Happy dog = Happy family! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Permalink

Greg has made such a difference in our lives and the life of our former "problem child," Stella. She is a happier, well-adjusted dog, literally overnight. We can't thank him enough! As the hospital manager at Park Ridge Animal Hospital, I recommend him to all our clients for their training and behavior needs. Permalink

All I can say is "wow." After one session it was like we had a different dog. I've always seen this on TV shows and thought it was staged until I saw it with my own two eyes. What a difference! Permalink

I cannot begin to tell you how impressed my wife and I are with your program. We have a 6- month-old male German Shephard named Petey. Petey was quite a problem. He had terrible food agression, hated other dogs, and would try to attack anyone that would come to the door. After one lesson from Bark Busters, Petey is a totally different dog. After the 3 hours our trainer spent with us, he had turned Petey from an aggressive overprotective dog, into a well-behaved dog that knew his place in the pack. I will recommend your company to everyone I know with dogs. Thank you very much. Permalink

This training far exceeded our expectations. The results were remarkably immediate. Bark Busters trained 'us' and provided an extremely easy training program to follow. Permalink
