It was just wonderful to meet with Jan the other day. Her tips and the training have been remarkable! Snowy is learning to relax and as a result we are too! Taking him for a walk is now much more of a pleasure, and his barking has almost completely ceased. Amazing!! We look forward to meeting with her again. Hopefully, Snowy will be ready to begin some socialization work.
September 9 2010Jan Janecki dealt with:
I'm a veterinarian that needed help with my dogs. I have two dogs, a small terrier mix that is about four and a boxer mix that is about 6 years. Over the last few years I had just accepted that my dogs would pull on their leashes, run to the door every time the doorbell rang and he would bark at any noise on the street. Over the past few years my boxer mix has become increasingly aggressive towards other dogs when out on walks.
After hearing nothing but positive things about Bark Busters, I finally made the decision I wish I made a while ago. I called Bark Busters and Jan Janecki came to the rescue!
The first visit included a lot of information about Bark Busters and their methods (very important to know when you work with a thrapist). Throughout the sessions Jan worked not only with our dogs, but more importantly with us. We realized a lot of things that we were doing wrong. When the sessions were over we were given homework for the week.
After two sessions and lots of homework we noticed huge differences in our dogs! The one that was aggressive towards other dogs will now either sit patiently or just walk by other dogs without any problems. It's great!
I wish I did this a long time ago as we used to go walking all the time until it became stressful. Now we're back to walking and running all the time!!

Jan helped us years ago with a "rescue dog" that bit every kid it saw. Now the dog is my best friend. We now have a new puppy that was hard to train, and I called Jan again. She helped and made things easy for us. She is friendly with the dogs and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her.

Our young golden retriever needed help with certain behavioral issues we were unable to correct on our own and we decided to call in a professional trainer. Having had some experience with trainers in the past, but not knowing any now, I took my time exploring the yelp.com ratings as well as others listed online. One I looked at was Bark Busters. I liked their presentation and contacted the trainer in our area, Jan Janecki. We hired Jan for 2½ hours to assess our dog's needs and demonstrate ways to solve our problems. This she did very well. Jan knows canine psychology and clued us in on the steps we could take to eliminate some annoying issues as well as build up our dog's confidence. With firm kindness she took us under her wing and showed us what to do to achieve the desired outcome -- a pleasant family dog. Dog owners who decide to hire a trainer must accept the responsibility for following through on the lessons taught, i.e. there's homework to be done here and all the lessons in the world will be for naught if the studying afterward isn't completed. This is because, in the end, it is the owner who is the student, and it is the trainer who teaches him to be the better owner. We highly recommend Jan Janecki and will continue to use her services.

My wife and I hired Jan to work with us training our Miniature Schnauzer with a piercing bark issue. Of course it was really my wife and I who were trained. Jan was absolutely wonderful! Her knowledge of how to handle the problem was very evident and in no time at all we had the barking under control.

I adopted a rescue dog that had deep-seated issues with aggression towards men and other dogs. I hired Jan after interviewing several dog trainers. She was the only one who listened to what the problems really were about with my dog Josh. She identified his problems and came up with solutions that effectively changed my dog's life. He has overcome most of the issues that I never thought would be able to be controlled. I owe Josh's life and happiness to Jan! I highly recommend Jan to train and change problematic behaviors in your dog.

Jan's training techniques not only helped us to better control our beagles but also greatly relieved the stress caused by their undesirable behavior. We tried other dog trainers, but Jan was the most effective. I would highly recommend her.

My dogs were SO out of control on walks and with visitors at the door. Now nobody in my neighborhood believes they are the same dogs after being trained with Bark Busters. They have good manners now!
