Baltimore | June 08 2011
Prior to meeting with Anne George of Baltimore Bark Busters, our dog was gentle, yet very timid. For several months before working with Anne, our dog had been very reluctant to go on walks with me without my husband joining us. After working on the techniques taught by Anne, my husband and I were able to understand the passive dominance traits of our dog. Consistently following the Bark Busters training techniques, we immediately began to see positive results. In the first day, I was able to confidently handle my dog without my husband joining us on a walk. It has been several months since we first met with Anne and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the results of our Bark Busters education. Not to mention, our dog is more confident and happy in our family pack. I would strongly recommend working with Anne George because she cares that you and your dog have a healthy and happy relationship! Permalink

Everything was easy to understand, both the how and the why of it. The training exercises were sensible and easy to follow. I was astonished at what was accomplished and at Calhoun's progress in less than three hours. Amazing! I was pleased with the natural/humane training methods. They were so sensible and both dog and people friendly. I found the training process very interesting. It's the first time I ever found obedience training to be stress free and fun. I would recommend John to anyone who needed anything from basic obedience to very serious problems. I learned so much and actually enjoyed learning it. We made more progress in three hours than we had in three months. We went out for dinner tonight after following what we learned today. Calhoun went into his crate with some coaxing, but when we returned and hour and fifteen minutes later, dry as a bone! Thanks John! It was wonderful coming home and not having to clean up anything.

Linda explained everything very well, very easy to understand and patient. I was amazed that Baxter would do things without needing a treat. I like the idea of no treats and no harsh collars needed for training. "Bah" and training collar are a great help and very effective. Certainly makes training more interesting. I would definitley recommend Bark Busters to everyone. Nice people, Great techniques, easy to understand training and lifetime support! I am thrilled that Baxter is learning so fast. Riding in the car with Baxter has become much easier and more enjoyable. Permalink

The collar Samsun now wears made him react much better. The collar was a wonderful purchase. June and Colin are great together with their teamwork. When working with Samsun they made it look easy. I'm looking forward to my next follow-up. Permalink

Shannon is a Border Collie/Aussie Shepherd mix: Very smart but very work-driven. John was terrific and we especially like the way he watched our interaction with Shannon and gave positive feedback. [He] took his time, answered our many questions, and we felt like we were the only clients of the day. Barking and demand for attention IS GONE. Commands were taken SERIOUSLY. We are happy parents to a happy dog. Permalink

It was Very Helpful when Maril demonstrated the techniques with Molly. I thought I could use our regular collar to walk Molly & it was awful. Maril came for a revisit & worked with us using the training collar - Molly was so much better! I am very pleased - however I have a hard time with the correction sound - but I'm using it because it works. Absolutely! It's very interesting to see how Molly picks up on the training when Maril demonstrates. I just need to train myself to follow what we've been taught. Whenever we have questions or concerns about Molly Maril answers our questions right away. It's great to know we can always get help from Maril. Whenever dog people comment on Molly's good behavior I tell them about Bark Busters! Permalink

Sheldon, my Pit Bull, was calmer and easier to deal with. I couldn't believe it, he was a different dog! It was amazing to see how communicating with your dog in their own language could bring about such a positive result. There was a lot of information to take in on the first visit - a little overwhelming at first, but very interesting. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters. They have a more natural approach to training - using your body language and voice tones to get your point across. The trainers at Bark Busters are always there for you. Whenever you have a problem they will help you over the phone or come back for a revisit. It's great! Permalink

I thought the trainer, John Lieberman, interacted well with the dogs, and he interacted well with US, also! Would very enthusiastically recommend! Permalink
