We adopted an extremely fearful mixed breed (Benny) about 2 years ago whose fears have slowly been turning into aggression in certain situations. We worked with several other companies and an animal behaviorist but were not having much success. Joanne Rice from Bark Busters came out to our house and almost immediately there was a change in Benny's behavior. Others focused on each specific issue, whereas Bark Busters, focuses on the relationship overall. As a result, Benny trusts us more and looks to us to tell him how to act in situations in which his fear is heightened. We are able to read his body language more effectively and as a result, know how to respond appropriately. This is a great program and Joanne is a wonderful, patient coach. We love Bark Busters!
