I cannnot tell you how pleased I have been with the Bark Buster's training and with my trainer, Bobb Frecker. My dog is NOW an awesome dog after working with the techniques Bobb taught me (and my dog too). I would highly recommend Bobb Frecker, as a trainer, and the Bark Busters training program to anyone and everyone wanting a well trained dog. My dog is just amazing after a few sessions using the Bark Buster techniques!!!!!! Thank you, Bobb Frecker, and Bark Busters for such an excellent job and excellent training program. I also love the tips on your web site. "Thank you, thank you!!!!!" Sincerely and Forever Grateful, Diane Getz Permalink

Laura using the flip chart to help explain the training techniques is a good learning tool. We were very impressed with how well Lulu responded. The natural training is a very effective method of training. With Laura, we found it to be interesting and enjoyable as well as stress free. We called a friend after the training session and told them all about Laura and Bark Busters! It was a pleasure to see Lulu react in such a positive way. !!! Permalink

Excellent in every way. Now I know how my dog Baylee thinks about things around him and how he was the boss of the house. THANK YOU BARK BUSTERS for showing me how to understand Baylee and make him a better dog. Permalink

John has taught us so much about our dogs and their behaviors. He has been extremely patient with us and flexible in working around our busy schedules. With already having a house filled with an 8 year old border collie mix, two cats, and five children, bringing in two puppies(a Great Dane and German Shepherd) could have been disastrous for us. John helped us make sure it wasn't. We can't say enough great things about John and can't be happier that we made the call to Bark Busters! After training with John, we are confident that we will always have happy, well-behaved dogs. Permalink

My wife and I have a 2½ year old Siberian Husky, named Pavlov, that we adopted from Adopt A Husky. He was found in the streets of Chicago and there was no information on where he came from or what he had been through. We had noticed that Pavlov had an issue with food aggression and being in the presence of other dogs. Pavlov would snarl at us if we came close to him while he was eating. When he would see another dog he would lunge, growl and bark like a maniac. Pavlov absolutely loves people and would roll over on his back to get his belly rubbed whenever he would meet someone. Greg informed us that Pavlov could be the author on "passive dominance" and that even though he was soooooo cute, he had to have more discipline and had to know that we are the pack leaders. Gregs methods worked very well with getting Pavlov to eat his food without snarling at us, breaking the cycle of him going belly up and then doing what we want and just general sits and stays when we needed him to. Pavlov use to lay between furniture, in corners or in his crate, but now he trusts us more, knows he is safe and will lay out on his bed, in the middle of the floor or under our legs with no issues. Pavlov sits and stays when visitors come, heels on walks and comes on command when he is outside. Due to the time of year (getting dark at 5) and us having very busy schedules we have not been able to work on Pavlov's behavior around other dogs that much. We plan on working with Greg in the spring and getting Pavlov to behave around other dogs. However, using some of Greg's techniques, we have been able to start getting Pavlov more comfortable around dogs we encounter on walks. Greg has helped us make Pavlov the absolute best dog in every way. Pavlov listens, sits and stays on command, comes when called and we believe Pavlov feels more secure and safe with us than he ever has before. Greg has done a great job and I would recommend him to anyone. THANKS GREG!!!! Permalink

For a first time dog owner, when our 3 months old puppy suddenly showed nibbling and growling aggression toward me, my husband, my 10 and 5 year old, I decided to call Bark Busters. Besides the nibbling issue, a puppy who loved to eat rabbit's poops like chocolate and wanted to play chase with our two pet rabbits, we definitely need a in-home trainer. When Meg demonstrated us how to train our puppy, she opened my eyes, I didn't know there is a way so efficient. After Meg left, we worked on the training, but a few weeks down, things falling apart again, our puppy started to show aggression and chasing the rabbits again. The training aid didn't work anymore, my puppy seemed to wait for me to throw the training aid on the ground and race for it, and played wild chase with me. Feeling hopeless again, I called Meg. Now my puppy is 5 months old, I can't say she is perfect and nibbling still exist, but she is a lot calmer than she was. When she forgets her rules, we just need to remind her and she remembers the rule. We can't be happier to know Meg and Bark Busters. For the first time dog owner, Meg and Bark Busters give us the confidence to correct the unwanted behavior and enjoy the companion of a dog. The only downside of it is my voice gets a bit scratchy if my puppy decides to choose to test my limits that day. I wish in the future Bark Buster will have something like a whistle to make the training even easier. :) Permalink

James took the time to make sure we understood and demonstrated the proper techniques. He was willing to return as we need him. Permalink
