My 3 year old maltipoo would bark if I spoke to anyone or hugged anyone. Nicholas explained that I needed to be the dominant one in our relationship and gave me the tools to train Quigley not to bark in those situations. It was no surprise to me that I was the one who needed change my behavior in order to change Quigley's behavior! Nicholas is very knowledgable, professional and patient. I enjoyed working with him very much! Permalink

Callie is a Goldendoodle puppy that received training from Nicholas Pagano at Bark Busters. she was 10 months old when we first met Nick at our home. She is a sweet & lovable dog . She & her owner just needed the right guidance to train her. At first, she was impossible to walk despite trying every harness & collar ther is. I almost resorted to the shock collar until I had my first lesson with Nick. He was able to teach me how to handle her & she is so much better. I know can walk her on the leash with the proper harness & the technique that Nick taught me. Training your dog takes patience & time. But, it is gratifying to see the results of the training. Just talked some time & patience. I highly recommend Nicholas Pagano at Bark Busters Permalink

We rescued our puppy and when it came to the training we knew Nick would be the person we would call. My son used Nick for his dog and was very happy with him so that's who we used. Nick is very professional and is great with the dogs! We would recommend him and would definitely use him again!! Permalink

Nicholas changed my life. After an unsuccessful attempt at training my rescue, Brody, I called Bark Busters. Nick was able to help me train Brody to sit, stay and get along with other dogs. With such kindness, patience, encouragement, and expertise he taught me skills that I use every day with Brody who was an undisciplined stray from the streets of Trenton. He turned a horrible experience into a fun challenge. I would highly recommend Nick. You will not regret it. Thank you, Uncle Nick! Permalink

We were having a lot of problems with our 3 month old puppy who was very aggressive towards our young children. He was scratching and biting beyond the normal puppy nipping / playing and we were a day away from surrendering him back to the rescue center. We had puppies in the past and were familiar with raising puppies and training them, but this puppy was different. Once Nicholas came into the picture, he helped us work with the puppy and the results were instant. Although we had trained dogs in the past, Nicholas was able to teach us a few very important techniques which immediately helped. Specifically, we hadn't had a puppy since we had children and we were attempting to involve the kids in training the puppy which is NOT something we should have been doing. Instead, Nicholas showed us how the puppy views us as adult humans and the children as human puppies, and puppies do not learn from other puppies. Another important lesson revolved around how we should react and respond when the puppy attempted to bite. Within a week, the biting completely stopped and our puppy is now our family dog for the rest of his life. Permalink

Nick was unbelievable would our puppy from the moment she greeted him! He was very informative and helpful. My husband and I have always had dogs growing up but training a puppy with also have 3 daughters under the age of 7 was too much for us. We called Nick and he quickly helped us understand how to communicate with Ranger and understand her needs. We couldn’t thank him enough during our last lesson. We know have our dream puppy thanks to Nick from bark busters! We highly recommend and Ranger Ruth does too! Permalink

We have a 2 year old rescue Dalmatian, that only know how to sit when we got her from Ga. When Uncle Nick came out the first lesson had her not running to the door. He not only gave us the tools we needed to work with Misty, but did follow ups to see how things were going. We still have some work ahead of us, but we know what to do. Nick takes a lot of interest in his clients and there progress. I would highly recommend him. Permalink

Working with Nick was such a pleasure and wow... did we ever see results! He has a very calm, confident, and reassuring approach that really helped us feel comfortable in working with our dog in new ways. We saw results almost instantly and most importantly - we're continuing to see improvements. Couldn't be happier. Permalink

We've had various trainers for 2 years trying to deal with a few specific isolated issues with our sheltie. We met with Nicholas for about an hour on our first visit and we saw more progress in the following 2 days with Nicholas's techniques than the previous 1 year with many other trainers. We continued with his classes and training and are very happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend Nicholas to anyone even slightly considering it. Its a game changer!! Permalink

Jumping, pulling on leash, barking, chewing, digging, hyperactivity, recall, separation anxiety... these were the puppy issues we were dealing with when we met Nicholas! We thought we could handle training the four month old rescue ourselves but that didn't work, nor did the other trainer we tried first. Both my Vet and the staff (who used him personally) recommended Nicholas. Nicholas has such a gentle command with dogs and he is very knowledgeable! Our dog really responded to him! He teaches with kindness and patience and he is also patient with us humans! Our dog is very sweet but is also very high energy and strong willed. The difference in her since we worked with Nicholas is immeasurable! Nicholas has taught us how to handle our dog and we continue to use what he has taught us everyday.Thank you Nicholas! Permalink
