I feel like I have a different dog this morning. Following Patrick’s teaching as best I can, my dog has been in the green zone since he woke up this morning. Had the most pleasant walk with him that I have ever had. Can’t say enough about Patrick’s training and it has only been two days! Permalink

Let me just tell you...this was literally our last ditch effort for our 6 year old golden retriever/shepherd mix. Our family was telling us we needed to get rid of our dog because of his behavior issues (anxiety, sometimes “aggressive”, etc). Having 2 small kids, we knew we needed to try something. I found Keith through his online reviews and figured if anyone could help, it would be him. Boy am I happy I sent that inquiry email! Keith was AMAZING and very patient. He didn’t force our dog to do anything he didn’t want to do. He gave my husband and I the tools and education we needed to understand our dog and his behaviors. And let me tell you....he’s like a new dog!! My husband and I were completely speechless. When Keith left, my husband and I looked at each other and asked what just happened hahha. I’m SO happy to have found Keith and bark busters and look forward to more sessions with him! I honestly can’t recommend him enough!!! Permalink

Barbara did wonders with my puppy Burt. He would not listen to a thing I said. In two hours, he started following my commands. I learned to set boundaries and NOT let him rule the house. What I really liked is that it was dog friendly and used no prong or shock collars. Burt and I are doing our homework and the progress continues! Permalink

Kevin and Christen have been wonderful with our puppy Indy. They are both very professional and gave us a lot of actionable home work to work on with our dog. Their methodology is not about just training the dogs but teaching us how dogs think and how best to help both sides communicate with one other. I can't wait to continue working together to see our puppy grow and learn. Permalink

I honestly can't say enough about the work Tommy has done with our dog. We have a VERY high-energy Weimaraner that has a hard time respecting boundaries, amongst other things. Tommy has visited us a couple of times and had a bunch of different strategies and methods for us to try. The results were almost instantaneous with our dog. Not only was Tommy fantastic in our training sessions, but he routinely follows up and checks in to see how things are going. It's easy to see that he not only loves what he does for a living, but he genuinely cares to see dogs at their best. If you're considering training for your dog, I highly recommend Bark Busters, but make sure you ask for Tommy. Permalink

Andy saved me and my pup! I have trained 4 dogs, big and small, in my lifetime and none of the techniques I had used in the past worked with Mobi. She was bitting me so much, (not in a playful or teething way) that my arms were scratched and scabbed. Not to mention having to deal with the other usual puppy issues. I was hesitant to spend the money for Bark Busters because I am self-employed and the pandemic has hit me hard financially. But I was starting to think I had made a mistake adopting my puppy! It broke my heart to think I might have to give her back. Andy came to my home and spent over 3 hours with me and Mobi. She hasn't bitten once since that day!!! Andy showed me several techniques to use to make Mobi understand that I am the leader and she needs to follow my commands. We are working on her leash walking skills and it's amazing to see her looking to me for direction. I believe Mobi is a happier dog since we are communicating so much better with each other. I am finally having fun with my puppy! It's been 4 weeks since Andy's first visit and Mobi and I are truly a bonded pair now. I know this would not have been possible if I hadn't called Andy. Thank you Andy and Bark Busters! Permalink

Our family first met Joanne in 2013 and she was a life saver. She helped us transform our wild 100 pound, adolescent, not yet neutered Bernese Mountain Dog into the perfect family pet. With a toddler in the house and a baby on the way were at our wits end, but we started to see changes in our dog the first day we started training with Joanne. We recently called Joanne again 7 years later for help with our new pup and are so happy she is still with bark busters. She is better than we remembered- the training methods truly work. We are doing our "homework" daily with the new puppy and making so much progress. I can't recommend this training program enough! Permalink

Wonderful experience working with Sheri and our puppy Skye. She was patient and thorough which we appreciated. Her experience with dogs was an asset as well as coming to our home to help us see it through a dog's eyes! Permalink
