I adopted a wonderful rescued bulldog puppy this summer, but began having difficulty with his anxiety-based aggression. I thought it would just be something to manage and work around and assumed that - because of his abusive background - that it was "unsolvable." Then his aggression escalated and he began snapping at and even biting us when we'd take him out for walks. I emailed Bark Busters in a panic after he drew blood one day and after ONE lesson with Marsha, he is SO much more relaxed and happy! He no longer feels the burden of having to "lead" our pack. No more barking when we leave the room, no more growling/lunging at us on our walks. He doesn't even try to guard the front door when he sees me getting ready to leave - he watches calmly, lounging from his spot on the bed :) Without all that stress he is calm and happy, walks behind me down the stairs (no more pulling/barking the whole way) and I am thrilled to see him this relaxed!! I loved that this method doesn't use any form of physical force, no yelling and it isn't even food based. I didn't believe in miracle cures, but Marsha - and the Bark Busters technique - is INCREDIBLE. The lifetime guarantee is pricy, but worth every penny. If you think your dog's issue is "incurable" ... this training method is the thing to try. Thank you from me and my pup! Permalink

We were having issues with sibling rivalry with our 2 female aussies who turned 1 yr old and are about 5 weeks apart. These are loving and fun dogs, and had become the best of friends, so their fighting was disheartening. I have a multiple dog household and realized the issue, but general obedience wasnt working and I wasnt sure how to stop it since it was getting more frequent and more violent. I called Nancy for assistance and after the first visit and the behavior modification instructions and lessons we put in place, it was an immediate success. In the last 4 weeks we have only had 1 minor episode and with the information and instructions she gave us we were able to stop the dog fight immediately. We are very happy and are continuing the obedience and training as they mature and get comfortable with their place in our household. Thank you Nancy! Permalink

Linda was very thorugh and knowledgeable. We didnt recognize the separation anxiety as the root of problem. Once addressed we saw immediate results. I am very pleased with Bark Busters. Fritz responded well. He does things we never expected, without a challenge. The whole family is involved. the different materials have been very handy. Well worth the investment! Permalink

Bark Busters in a word is excellent. Our two labs who pulled for years now walk perfectly after one lesson. Permalink

Patrick is very professional. The one lesson with Bark Busters yielded unbelievable results. The methods are very humane. We feel better about the Bark Buster method than the prong or electric collar we used to use on our dog. Permalink

Patrick made the lesson interesting and enjoyable. He showed us so much which is going to help Penny be less aggressive towards other dogs. After one lesson, Penny walked by our side and continues to do so with just one lesson with Bark Busters. Bark Busters just makes sense. They teach humans how to speak dog. That is the answer!

I am so grateful for your help. I took Bosco and Katie (separately) for long walks this morning with lots of distractions. I can't tell you how happy I am to walk with slack leashes the entire time. I am so proud of them. I am SOOOO HAPPY right now! I just had to share our success! Permalink
