Orange Park | November 11 2012
Our trainer was very knowledgable and used examples that even my children could understand. It was incredible! We thought we had an agressive dog but the trainer showed us we had a confused dog. He was walking without pulling in minutes! We were surprised at how simple dog language was. Mr. Branch illustrated points with stories of experience. It was very interesting. I already plan to share Bark Busters information with local animal control employees and a collegue of mine is calling soon! We had decided to euthanize our biting dog for safety. Our entire family cried for days thinking we were losing our precious Booger. Our vet suggested Bark Busters as a last resort. James saved our baby's life!!! Thank you so much!!! Permalink

I was referred to Bark Busters by my vet. Brian is knowledgeable about the program and dog behavior. He represents this philosophy of dog training very well. Both dogs have improved and my living situation is much more tolerable. Permalink

I had adopted two adult terrier mixes, half-brothers, who suffered leash aggression and separation anxiety, two conditions I was too inexperienced to handle. Donna from Bark Busters was a gem, working as professionally and successfully with the dogs as she did with me. Highly recommended without reservation. Permalink

Maril took extra time to explain everything to me and answered every question. She was very patient with me. I'm hard to train but now know the first steps on how to get control of my house. We are working on it. (Stubborn Dogs). I'm pleased that I will be able to get my dogs to listen without having to have a treat in my hand! The training was very interesting. I learned a lot. Looking forward to the next session. Maril is very informed and helpful. My 1st session was yesterday and today I am already starting to get to be head of my house. Maril truly has helped me with my own confidence in my ability as leader of my little pack. Permalink

Northville | November 09 2012
Maril verbally and physically explained the techniques which made it easy to understand. Mylo is extremely stubborn, but you could see that he was walking on the leash better by the end of the first lesson. The techniques were friendly and easy to understand. They are also very simple, but I had never thought to do it. It was very interesting and enjoyable, although a little overwhelming at first. I love the techniques since it is all about body language, sounds and leadership. I don't want anyone hurting their dogs. It was an enjoyable experience and so much more relaxing because it is done in the comfort of your own home - which is also easier on your dog. Permalink

Maril explained the perspective of the dog in terms that made a lot of sense. She was kind and humorous and always encouraging. At the end of the first session Stringer was a different dog. It was amazing and a little strange - but fantastic! There was hope that he might be able to relax. I have had quite a few dogs and always read about dog training and other related information. I was very familiar with the idea of leadership required of the human "pack" leaders, but I never read about using your voice instead of treats or time-outs, or putting your hands on the dog. The Bark Busters method is quite remarkable. The training was definitely enjoyable. We look forward to Maril's lessons! We absolutely recommend Bark Busters. The results are phenomenal! So glad we tried Bark Busters. Totally amazing method, very professional trainer, exceptional service, stunning results. Thank you! Permalink

Livonia | November 09 2012
The training was made very simple to understand. He no longer is crying in his crate, he now goes in the crate with ease, and he is not going upstairs. We liked the natural training techniques, no pet should be harmed when you're trying to train. I am shocked at the speed of the results and how fast our pup learned. We really appreciate that we can contact Bob & Maril anytime with questions. Permalink

Wilsonville | November 07 2012
Lisa gave a very comprehensive first session. I have a stubborn puppy who is fearful and needs a lot of work. I was very pleased with the natural training techniques. Thinking like a dog is a new concept for me. The training was very thorough and I would definitely recommend Bark Busters. Permalink
Lathrup Village | November 07 2012
The training techniques are natural and easy enough for anyone to use. The training is very interesting. It has a big effect on my interaction with my dog - so I am having to retrain and readjust myself - not so easy. Permalink
