Well, all I can say is our experience has been incredible. We have a 10 year old lab and a 3 1/2 year old mixed breed. Although they are both great dogs they have some very bad habits…barking and snitching food from the kitchen and very hard to take on walks. After one session, Josh taught us how to control all of these behaviors. Amazing ? highly recommend Josh and the company. It is expensive but remember, you get what you pay for. It is well worth it.

I cannot stress how incredible my first session with Josh was. I have an incredibly loving Australian Shepherd but for the past 8 months had started to bark at anything and everything that passed by our house. Every time someone came to my house he would bark non-stop for about 10 minutes straight and the same thing when I took him on a walk. I could not understand why this started happening to the most loving and easy-going dog and everything I tried to do failed to help him. My first session with Josh was so incredibly informative and the almost instantaneous results I saw I literally could not believe. I was sitting there in absolute awe. An hour and a half into the first session my dog walked past 3 grown men and a leaf blower (all of which would have set him off into non-stop barking) without a second thought. Every walk he's been on since has been quiet and he loves walking again. I've had people over to the house 3 times since the session and the most I'll get is one initial bark and once I correct him immediately, he instantly backs down and listens quietly. I wish I could give Josh and Bark Busters more than 5 stars. My dog literally falling asleep while someone is working on my house feet away from him as I am writing this....this has not happened in almost a year. Permalink

Josh was amazing with our dogs plus he provided clear and concise directions on how to help us guide are dogs. We noticed a considerable difference in our dogs in the first training session. We look forward to learning new techniques. Permalink

Trainer note from Joshua : Louie and Bo responded very well during our first session. We worked on their overall behavior as well as leash manners and front door manners. Now that Shawna has stepped up as the leader in the home the dogs are able to relax. Louie didn't react to the doorbell for the first time in years!

Josh was absolutely wonderful. Explain training in detail. Brought training supplies and listened to our needs. We have two shepherd puppies, one was rescued and the other came from a breeder, which means they both have different needs. I highly recommend this program and Josh Permalink

I was blown away by the results Dalila taught me with my puppy. I had carefully researched all the companies around and Bark Busters was the only one that didn't use shock collars, treats or negative reinforcement of some kind. That checked my first box. Secondly they had great reviews. I had a dog that passed away and I thought I knew how to train a dog but this adorable puppy Jaz and I couldn't get on the same page. In fact, we couldn't even find the paper together! Dalila helped us on basic obedience, uncontrollable barking and jumping all over visitors when they came to the door. I can't wait to see how Jaz and I progress! Oh and the third box is their Lifetime Guarantee. They follow you for the life of your dog! Permalink

What a great experience! I'm so excited for the growth of my dog through Bark Busters practices. The training was clear and had immediate results. Scott was amazing to work with and his professional and informative approach made this such a joy. Not to mention the training lasts for life! Not treat or punishment based makes this training the only one I would recommend. So happy for my dog Dash that he can have this wonderful training. If I could give it more stars I would. Permalink

Trainer note from Joshua : Judie has taken charge of her home and now that she has her dogs Dakota and Missy are following her lead. Missy has been struggling with barking in the home because she feels that she has to protect Missy. Judie is now showing Missy she has nothing to worry about because moms got it!
