Deb is very easy to work with. She explained it so that we could easily understand the homework that we have to do each night. After training one hour they (our two Corgis) were already behaving better. In the two weeks that followed, due to our persistent daily training, they are much happier and better behaved. After the second training session, I have never seen them this well behaved and I think due to the techniques that we have been taught they will just keep getting better and better. The more natural training techniques used by Bark Busters are excellent. Deb is friendly and engaging and is truly an expert. Bark Busters Home Dog Training is well worth the money! Deb does a great job and our dogs are the happiest we've ever seen them!!! Permalink

Abby was very disruptive to the other dogs and cats prior to John coming to the house. Abby seems better, but a long way to go. Abby seems to be tolerating the leash better and following commands. We would recommend Bark Busters to friends and family. Permalink

Our trainer explained the training techniques in a way that was easy to understand. Our dog is responding favorably. We observed very noticeable results right away. We were pleased with the natural/non physical training methods. It's very encouraging to see our dog respond to the training techniques we've been taught. The dog responded immediately to John and was a very different dog by the end of the session. Learning about passive influence was so informative and probably the most important thing we learned. John was wonderful and so helpful, patient and knowledgeable. Permalink

I am very pleased with the whole training experience. Everything was explained to suit the needs of the three dogs that I have. It takes time and consistency. I liked that the trainer was able to come to the house to help my Mother with the whole process, for she was unable to go to the traditional training classes for dog training. Permalink

I just wanted to let you know how well behaved my pack was. We had Scott's 3 children over for our 2nd Thanksgiving, Thursday evening. I knew around what time the kids were coming (3 different arrivals). I closed the dog door. Each time someone came they would knock at the door I would tell the dogs to sit and stay on their dog beds. After the person entered into the main part of the living room, and I had said "Hi" I would let them come say hi. The dogs did beautifully each time... It was wonderful. We also had a worker here all day Friday and Saturday installing two new doors. Peanut was very well behaved...Much Improvement. Thank you. Permalink

I work at Kipling Veterinary Hospital. It was really a pleasure and a surprise learning how simple a dog sees things, especially after learning how complex their minds can be. I am really impressed with the knowledge I was given and look forward to further tools to teach my dog. Permalink

WOW! I cannot express how happy I am with the results I got from Bark Busters! Jack came to my home two days ago to help me with my three barking dogs, and also to help two Chihuahuas stop fighting. Within one hour, my dogs were quiet and it was clear they knew that I was now the new alpha dog in the family! And the fighting is down to a quiet rumble, and with a couple more days of practice, I expect complete peace and quiet in my home. I was absolutely flabbergasted with the results and the easy technique! No treats or yelling required! :) Jack was amazing and knew exactly how to help me. My vet, Dr. Brar, with Klahanie Center Veterinary Clinic, recommended Bark Busters to me and they came through with flying colors! Thank you Bark Busters. Permalink

Tucson | November 27 2012
Thank you, Gerard and Bark Busters for helping us with Bruce's (our dog) anxiety and territorial issues! Our 7 year old rescue sheltie Bruce was the perfectly behaved dog for 3 months until... he started assuming control over us, our guests and our place. The behavior was especially difficult when a visitor would make a movement to walk away, which seemed to invoke his herding instincts, including barking, circling and nipping. When our son returned to live with us for a while, we could not even have them in the same room for fear of this behavior. Gerard of Bark Busters came to the rescue and taught us how to apply corrections and their appropriate timing. Bruce responds well to the training tools which in turn provide us with a great level of confidence. Bark Busters methodology allows us to continue reinforcement as the pack leaders, and better still, Bruce seemed to enjoy and relax in his role as pack follower again! Our son can now move around freely. It does take a little work, but having a well behaved dog is priceless. Permalink
