I was so impressed with Karen and the lessons we had yesterday. I was nervous because Simon is such a high anxiety dog and knew he would bark and growl for a bit- it subsided quickly and after our session he had stopped barking and sat next to both of us on the couch. We’re putting our lessons and homework first thing during the day and I’m so happy to have found Karen to work with. Permalink

Trainer note from Karen : Thank you for the kind review. Lara and Simon will be more in tune with each other now. Simon understands Dog, and Lara is learning to speak Dog!

Karen came and instantly started treating the dog like family, she was very helpful and had very simple but effective way of training with Alexa, she really helped deal with all the issues that our dog was having and now she is a lot more behaved than she was. It was a very good experience and I would recommend to anyone who wants help with their dog. Permalink

She was an amazing trainer! She was extremely patient with my pup and was able to communicate very simply and clearly what we needed to do and how to do it. When we were done I felt that I had learned a ton about how to be a better teacher to my dog in a way that was productive for both her and myself! I would absolutely recommend Karen to anyone that wants to make sure that their dog is well behaved from a trainer that genuinely loves the pups she works with! Permalink

Karen was great with my big girl, Alexa. She quickly had Alexa under her spell, and reminded me that I needed to be in charge. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Bark Busters to all! Permalink

Karen is absolutely amazing and so personable. Cedar is almost 4 months old and was chewing on hands and her leash, barking, and just generally thinking she was in charge. Karen walked in and within 5 minutes, she had Cedar calmly sitting beside her. I learned more in 15 minutes with Karen than I did in the months I spent researching on how to train a puppy and prevent/correct bad habits. I can’t recommend Karen enough and I am looking forward to the next training session with her. Permalink

Karen explained that we needed to learn to speak dog. She showed us how to connect with our pups in a positive way they would understand & how to continue teaching our pups ?. We have continued to see great results that continue to amaze me. I look forward to our next session with Karen. Permalink

If Bark Busters can work on Charley, they can work on any dog! Karen seemed very knowledgeable about dogs and aspects of training them. Thank you! Permalink

Karen was awesome. The dog barks at every little sound, the TV, fence, mirrors, anything she can see her reflection in etc. Brandy is also very fearful. Our first lesson and I think we made some great progress. Now for the consistency part over the next month implementing “How to speak Dog” I feel like there is hope for our dog! Permalink

Trainer note from Karen : Thank you for the review and kind words. It was my pleasure to help all of you. My goal is to make sure you learn to speak Dog so when you come upon a behavioural problem, you'll have the knowledge to help her. I am also always your support. I am so pleased with the response from you and Brandy. Thanks.

What can I say about Karen. I feel like she not only helped our dog, she also helped me. I never had a dog before when my sister got her puppy. I instantly fell in love with him. He was a handful though. He was terrified of the leash and the collar. He would go nuts if we put either on him. For some reason I felt like I could change that, so I asked Karen if she could show me a few techniques. I worked with him everyday. Within a week I had the collar on him, then the leash. He was even walking on the leash. The transformation was amazing. I don’t believe that ever would have happened without Karen’s guidance. She was so patient with us and him. She gave us the tools and confidence to build a relationship of love and trust with our new baby. Do yourself and your dog a favor and call Karen. You will not regret it. Permalink

My dog was barking on and on and on. I called Bark Busters and Karen came out and helped me learn how to Speak Dog. I was amazed at Flippy's response. Permalink
