Carol T Concord, North Carolina | March 15 2014
The real test will be when we go outside, but Leia did respond to this new way of training. I think it is interesting how dogs interact. Karen is very patient and supportive and our puppy listened to her immediately! Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Jumping up, Pulling, Recall
Trainer note from Karen : Although Leia's response to the training was remarkable, Carol will have to be sure not to proceed to new challenges too quickly so they get the new hierarchy firmly in place. With patience, they will have a better behaved and much happier little dog!

Christopher C Concord, North Carolina | March 15 2014
We love our dog, Thor, but he was starting to develop habits that weren't good. Those have almost been corrected in one session! Karen took plenty of time to explain everything to us. She was very patient and insightful. We noticed results within 5 minutes of starting to use the Bark Busters training techniques. I'm amazed at their simplicity and effectiveness. The Bark Busters system works and Karen is a phenomenal instructor! Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Barking, Jumping up, Other, Recall, Separation anxiety
Trainer note from Karen : When the humans stepped up and took charge, this little beagle just stepped back and said, "fine ... you do it!" I believe Thor was a little surprised that he wasn't the BIG DOG that he thought was! He is going to really enjoy being less stressed and be so much happier with a family he can rely on instead of a pack he has to manage!

Mike & Sandy Hammett H Livonia, Michigan | March 15 2014
Maril does an amazing job educating clients and offering support in a personal and most respectful way. Within the same day we saw such tremendous improvement that we all felt more confident about the techniques we were taught and that the behavior problems would be addressed. The techniques are so natural that everyone in our family can at any time apply them for effective results. The personal approach (1-on-1) definitely makes the training more effective and therefore more enjoyable. Seeing immediate results makes it even better. The Bark Buster approach clearly works. We feel blessed to have had this opportunity to learn from Bark Busters proven techniques and our dedicated therapist. We are so grateful for the transformation taking place in our home. Thank you Maril & Thank You Bark Busters! Permalink

Trainer note from Maril and Bob : Ribby was biting family members while guarding areas in the house. The Hammett family is dedicated to Ribby and I attribute their success to effective follow through and application of the Bark Buster techniques.

I saw a noticeable difference in shadow at the end of the first lesson. Shadow was a quick learner. I have already been telling everyone how the first session went. Permalink

Lisa & Alberto H Bonita Springs, Florida | March 14 2014
Patrick was very clear in explaining the techniques and he answered all of our questions. Our dog, 2 1/2 year old Labradoodle, paid much more attention to us and walked amazingly on the leash which is something he has never done before. We were so pleased with the natural training methods Bark Busters uses and teaches. Bark Busters is really a people training process. We need to change our ways in order for our dog to change. We were excited to learn and it ALL made sense. Our dog was close to not being a part of our family anymore. He was uncontrollable. Now, even after just one day, he is behaving so much better.

Excellent training. Before Otis would not listen to anything and after he listened very well. Amazing!!! Amy taught me techniques to use to get Otis to listen & acknowledge me & he responded the way I wanted him to. Permalink

Ryan R Palm Beach Gardens, Florida | March 14 2014
My dog Mina and I were at the point where we had to avoid other dogs due to aggression. On routine walks I felt forced to zigzag around my fellow dog walking neighbors. Thanks to Mary now Mina and I can go where we want to go without incident. Mary came into our home and found out key changes that were needed in order for us live a peaceful life inside and outside our home. I would say Mary is extremely educated in the field of canine behavior modification and in addition to that she is wonderfully professional. Permalink
