By the end of the first week we felt like we almost had a new dog. Methods were very easy to learn & maintain and much more effective than any other techniques we've tried. We noticed a significant change (positive) in our dog right away, love that we can call / email with any questions or concerns in between lessons.

Maril took extra time to explain everything to me and answered every question. She was very patient with me. I'm hard to train but now know the first steps on how to get control of my house. We are working on it. (Stubborn Dogs). I'm pleased that I will be able to get my dogs to listen without having to have a treat in my hand! The training was very interesting. I learned a lot. Looking forward to the next session. Maril is very informed and helpful. My 1st session was yesterday and today I am already starting to get to be head of my house. Maril truly has helped me with my own confidence in my ability as leader of my little pack.

Maril verbally and physically explained the techniques which made it easy to understand. Mylo is extremely stubborn, but you could see that he was walking on the leash better by the end of the first lesson. The techniques were friendly and easy to understand. They are also very simple, but I had never thought to do it. It was very interesting and enjoyable, although a little overwhelming at first. I love the techniques since it is all about body language, sounds and leadership. I don't want anyone hurting their dogs. It was an enjoyable experience and so much more relaxing because it is done in the comfort of your own home - which is also easier on your dog.

The training was made very simple to understand. He no longer is crying in his crate, he now goes in the crate with ease, and he is not going upstairs. We liked the natural training techniques, no pet should be harmed when you're trying to train. I am shocked at the speed of the results and how fast our pup learned. We really appreciate that we can contact Bob & Maril anytime with questions.

The training techniques are natural and easy enough for anyone to use. The training is very interesting. It has a big effect on my interaction with my dog - so I am having to retrain and readjust myself - not so easy.

Maril helped us understand Wilbur's way of thinking which makes why training the Bark Busters way is logical. Maril has a great personality, is honest when required but also fun - not afraid to take charge. Maril took time to understand our situation / issues and tailored the program to our needs.

The training was very enjoyable - Maril is entertaining with a great sense of humor. I was pleased with Maril - our dog respects her - I had to earn the same respect - just like your literature says. The training was amazing - again I think it was due to Maril. Maril went at a comfortable pace without insulting my intelligence. Bark Busters is for anyone who wants to enjoy their dog. Let's face it - a well behaved dog is like a well-behaved child; they are easy to be proud of and very nice to have around. Maril really likes animals - I could tell that - When my kids came home and she stayed late to show and tell them some important key points. That meant that she cared about our success and ultimately our dog.

Maril is very patient with me and easy to work with. Verbal commands / praise is easier to work with than "clicker" or "treat" training. My puppy could sit on command at the end of our first lesson. It is so convenient to schedule in-home training and I am glad to have training support as issues arise.

Maril is very professional and knowledgeable. We saw results at the first session and Riley seems thrilled to see that we are now in charge! We are pleased with the natural training techniques and we're pleased at how quickly our dogs are responding. It was fascinating to watch Maril work with Nelson and Riley. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters (and already have) to anyone.

Maril did a great job. It's definitely a different way to think about dog training, but I have great hope now that they will get along. We say results right away, and have continued results. The natural techniques are a little foreign compared to other recent training, but this is working. The training was interesting and enjoyable. Not too long, really good explanations and good work with the dogs.
