What our Clients are saying about us
I spoke with Ken on the phone about our newly rescued shepherd mix, Ella, and her lack of socialization with people. I have had dogs all of my life, Ella's issues were new for me. Ken was very understanding, supportive, and helpful in that he assured me that what I was doing at home was appropriate. I feel confident that Ella will continue to improve and blossom even more into the loving sweet girl we've come to love. Ken's assurances were just what I needed, and I am very appreciative of the time he took to talk to me, and encouraging me to contact him if I should have any further issues.Mary Ann S., Naperville, IllinoisMarch 26 2014
I have a Boxer, Katie that is 2 years old. My grown children finally admitted that they did not enjoy coming over anymore due to owe dog. This information shocked me and made me realize Katie had become our 2 yr old spoiled brat and not a dog. Some how my husbund and I had lost all our common sense, treating a dog like a child. We had a very will fill spoiled boxer. i decided I needed help, ASP, In The House, One On One, I was pretty upset. I reviewed all the information on line and choice Bark Busters. Katie as a puppy had gone to several trainers, programs, and day camps never doing very well. We always just summed it up to " Katie our Clown"! Now I meant business! I contacted Ken Liddell by phone that day and he responded within a timely manner. Within two days, Ken, Katie and I were having our first training session. I was shocked to see how Katie reacted to this training method. Ken seemed to know exactly how to handle both Kate and I. Before the first session was over I understood the program and Kate knew I was in charge. By the time my husband got home I knew well enough to tech him. This means as teachers know I have mastered the program! My husband was amazed! The next day my Daughter and son-in-law came over and were pleasantly surprised. My son upon hearing the wonderful transformation decided to come watch a hockey game. This would never had been possible without the program. Katie, before Ken would be on top of our guests until we put her in a cage. Everyone is proud and happy with Katie! We really appreciate Ken Liddell and Bark Busters!Dawn Curatolo, NapervilleFebruary 18 2012
I really liked Ken's laid back manner. From the moment he came into my home, I could see a difference in my dog, Maggie. By the time the session was complete, I knew I had picked the right service for Maggie. That was last Thursday.....that was 4 days ago and now with Ken's instructions, Maggie has become a very different dog. She's gone from a frisky terrier to a well manner Wheaten. I am truly impressed with the Bark Busters natural methods of training and with the excellent way in which Ken was able to transfer those ideas into a life style for Maggie and me. Thanks Ken...I really appreciate your help and guidance.Peggy Gardner, OswegoJune 22 2009
Ken explained the training techniques in a way that was easy to follow. I like the natural training techniques that Bark busters employs. We enjoyed the training experience and would definitely recommend Bark busters to anybody.wendy, larsonJune 16 2009
I am special needs person and not an easy person to work with. I have a high energy dog name Dasie who is 9 months old. Ken stayed with me for over an hour and helped me with her, she is definitely getting better.Jessica Gay, plainfieldJune 3 2009
September 19 2017Ken Liddell dealt with:
I'm so happy!!! Ken came to my home and spent 2.5 hours with us. He explained everything we did and WHY we needed to do it. We worked with two of my four dogs, mainly on barking for one and feeling the need to guard the house for the other. Both dogs are doing soooo much better, even though it has only been one week. My mailman came to the door and asked if we had lost some of the dogs because it was so much quieter when he rang the bell. Then I had my parents stay for about four days. The last time my dad was here, he didn't wear his hearing aids due to the barking and growling. This time, the day after he arrived, I saw him wearing them! He said he put them in because the house was that much quieter. I work on training with them every day, and every day they seem to improve tenfold.
I cannot tell you how happy I am with this whole experience!
The fees for this training were more than reasonable in my opinion. However, considering the improvement in the sound level in my home, I would have paid five times as much and still been thrilled.
I loved Ken, he was personable and could just look at each of my dogs and tell what their issues were, without even asking me. He even eventually won over my husband, which is not an easy task, and most people fail. Ken has earned the respect and admiration of myself and my husband.

Ken was very informative. We enjoyed our first lesson as well as learning to effectively train our dog. We were pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters and saw noticeable results by the end of the first training session. I would recommend Bark Busters to anybody in need of dog training. Thank you, Ken!!

We are so impressed and reassured now that we have met Ken Liddell. A wonderful and knowledgeable person from the inside out. We never had expected to gain so much from one afternoon of having a trainer come to our home. We are longtime dog owners, and before we met Ken, thought we knew it all! After spending just a few short hours communicating by telephone and a home visit from Ken, we have gained so much more that we can take with us for a lifetime of happy puppy care. Thank you for everything and expect many referrals and a call from us in the near future!
