Our Standard Schnauzer puppy was getting out of control. Biting, nipping, barking, jumping everywhere in the house. While walking, he used to pull the leash very strongly and get overly excited when spotting other people or dogs.
We've done some research an decided to call Bark Busters.
Mason Erwin came to our home and spent 4 hours with the whole family. He basically trained us and showed us how to handle Otto. After explaining us the behavioral challenges and peculiarities all dogs have, he showed us the corrections we needed to do inside the house. Also, we went for a walk in the nearby the park and trails where we usually walk Otto.
Otto was also experiencing separation anxiety. Very disruptive, because we couldn't leave him alone and couldn't have even 6 straight hours of sleep.
In sum, we were vey discouraged and frustrated because we couldn't help out our beloved Otto.
After the first session with Mason, Otto's behavior changed significantly. No more pulling, no more biting, no more nipping. Walking with him was very pleasant. Separation anxiety was substantially lower. He now stays in his crate at night without barking or whining.
We called Mason once more to address a couple of remaining issues; e.g. barking aggressively at other dogs while walking.
Once again, Mason's guidance was very effective and Otto stopped the undesirable behavior almost immediately.
We are grateful and impressed with Mason's skills and training.
It has been a game changer.
