I decided to reserve my comments until I was able to get a true sense of the overall effectiveness of the Bark Busters training method. Now, a month after my initial consultation, I can honestly say that I am very pleased with the results. It is important to mention that I previously had my dog, a male Vizsla, sent away for a three week training program at a dog boot camp and most recently attended private one-on-one sessions with a professional dog trainer who used treats to reward/reinforce desired behaviors. After spending a great deal of money on those training programs, I found that I still had a dog that I could not control, e.g., he would not listen to me indoors, he would constantly pull on his leash while outdoors regardless of the type of collar he was wearing. He would act aggressively towards other dogs while on walks and would she away from strangers. Based on a recommendation, I decided to try the Bark Busters training method. Prior to using Bark Busters, I thought my dog was uncontrollable and almost felt as if he was a lost cause. However, after following the trainer's instructions, I have come to find that I now have a dog that seems more calm, relaxed and so much easier to manage both indoors and outdoors. Essentially, the program does require that I devote time to train my dog; however, I consider the time requirements to be minimal compared to the positive changes I've experienced in my dog's behavior. With approximately 15 minutes of daily training, my dog has morphed somewhat effortlessly on my part from a bad dog into a delightful dog. At least I can now envision my dog as becoming a good, well behaved dog in the near future. In comparison to other dog training programs I've tried, Bark Busters is by far the best and most effective dog training method available.
