On the first visit, Sarah had our 3.5 month old rambunctious Cane Corso under control immediately and taught us in a straightforward way how to do it ourselves. She's also extremely responsive and thorough responding to all of our questions via email. Highly recommend! Permalink

We have 2 dogs - Cowboy (lab/border collie mix) and Godiva (chocolate lab). We got them both as rescues. We have a lot of issues with Godiva being dog aggressive and Cowboy being both dog and people aggressive and bumping them in the "No-no parts". They are both very difficult to walk as they have no leash manners. I got to dreading taking them for a walk because they pulled so hard and we would be fearful if we ran into kids or dogs. Within an hour we gained control of our front door so they wouldn't rush the door when people rang the bell and we were able get Cowboy to walk on a leash using the Bark Buster Collar. He didn't pull at all and it was like he wasn't even attached to a leash. Godiva is a little more challenging as she is older and more set in her ways, but we have hope with a little time and patience she will come a long. Thank you Robin for helping us. We look forward to seeing the changes in Cowboy and Godiva's behavior Permalink

Zoe responded quickly and effectively to the techniques discussed today. I was very impressed with the changes in such a short time - the quietest she has ever been with a visitor. I look forward to continuing to work with Ruth over the coming weeks. Permalink

Trainer note from Ruth : Zoe is an adorable Dachshund/Corgi mix. Her barking had recently become something other than just noise, and her owner wanted to make sure she was going down the right behavior path. She took to Bark Busters very easily and I think she really enjoyed working too!

Maverick responded to training right away. He was exhausted when we were done with the first session. Permalink

Trainer note from Ruth : Maverick is a small Cockapoo, who appears to be more Poodle than Cocker. The mental stimulation really wore him out! He's a really cute little guy!

I really appreciate that you created an outline recapping the behaviors we need to work on. Our session has made a notable difference with Ruckus already, I should say Scott and myself. Thank you so much for all the great guidance.  You are just amazing and a very gifted teacher!  Permalink

Kurt was dealing with five people (four teens) and was patient and very effective. We would absolutely recommend Bark Busters to our friends and neighbors. We've always told people to go to Bark Busters! The day of our first lesson, our cat (who hates the dogs) walked through the house in shock. He kept looking behind as if to say "What's up with these dogs?" Our house is already much more peaceful Permalink

I would like to praise the training for us and our Lab puppy that Susan has provided while we have been in Florida. Bailey is a very large, strong 8 month old who has been quite difficult for us to control. Susan has demonstrated training that has helped us progress in controlling him around people and other dogs. coming when called, and leash walking. Many thanks for your service. I highly recommend Susan and Bark Busters for providing much needed help. Permalink

Rebecca did a fantastic job. I have to admit I am shocked at how well my two dogs responded. I have a small Cockapoo and I have never been able to keep her off the couch. With the techniques I learned after 3 hours, Bella actually stayed off couch and waited to be invited up. I am impressed! Permalink

Nikki S Germantown, Maryland | April 03 2015
I called Bark Busters to help me learn how to manage my newly adopted Pit Bull, Ruckus. Ruckus is very loving, but I began to notice he was very territorial of me to the point where he would bark and growl at me if I did not pay attention to him at his demand. When I had guests over, he would bark and growl at them. He was completely running the show, and I didn't know how to put myself back in charge. Glenda came out and helped me gain control back. After our first 2 hour session, I felt like I had an entirely different dog. The tools and techniques she gave me worked like magic. I now had a dog who listened and respected me and understood he was no longer in the dominant position. On our second session, we worked on techniques to help me be in more control during our walks outside. Before Glenda came, Ruckus would DRAG me down the sidewalk and become agitated when he saw other dogs. It made it hard for me to enjoy walking him, and he ended up getting shorted because I didn't feel like I could manage him on a leash for long periods of time outside. With Glenda's help and guidance during our next 1 hour session, I have a completely different dog. He now walks beside me, and is not so easily excited and distracted. This is so great because I can take him on longer walks and help him get out some of his energy! Glenda truly is a miracle worker! I can't believe how much progress Ruckus has made in such a short period of time. Her tips and techniques really work and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who has issues with their dog. Ruckus needed some guidance, and I myself needed guidance on how to help him. I got the guidance I needed and so much more! Thank you, Glenda!!!!! Permalink
