I have an 11-month-old Australian Shepherd named Emmie. My friends and family stopped visiting because she would not stop clawing and jumping on them. I eventually began locking her up in the laundry room as I could not control her energy. She barked at my children, bit our hands when we tried to pet her, and even jumped through our screen door after the neighbor. We discussed the option of giving her away to a new home, but wondered who would want such a dog. I saw the Bark Buster ad in the phone book and decided to give Emmie one last chance. Kathy and Betsy came to my home and had me controlling my dog within the first five minutes of their arrival. I could hardly believe it! They made me realize that I had a wonderful dog, she just needed to have a leader. The best part is that I was able to communicate my leadership without using any physical punishment. It makes me sad to think I almost gave away my best friend. Thanks to Kathy, Betsy, and Bark Busters. I have my life back, and my dog enjoys hers! Permalink

Amazing-I've been telling everyone Deb is the Dog Whisperer! I saw results during the first session and am pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters. I have already recommended Bark Busters to friends multiple times. The results I have noticed are very good. I am super pleased with Deb. I'm not going to take my dog to the shelter!! Permalink

WOW!!! Our first week (with many more to come) of peace, quiet, and harmony. We are just thrilled with the changes after only one lesson with Wendy. What was turning into a very stressful environment for us has become quite enjoyable for both us and the dogs. It's nice to be in control of our home again. We are looking forward to learning new things right along with the dogs. Thank you so much, Wendy. Permalink

Patrick is very entertaining. He explained the Bark Busters techniques in a way that was easy to follow and understand. I saw results with my three dogs (Pomeranian and 2 Prague Ratters) by the end of just one two-hour lesson. I am very happy with my three "new" dogs and would recommend Bark Busters. Permalink

I can't recommend Karen Gaines of Bark Busters enough for anyone with a dog (and potentially family) in need of training. Karen not only effectively addressed our concerns with our puppy but also educated our whole family on effectively training and using proper behavior methods with our Wheaten Terrier. An example of her commitment to her clients is one day, she went for a long walk with myself and our dog, searching for other dogs while I explained our latest challenge. I am also always amazed how quickly our dog responds to Karen's training suggestions. Permalink

Christine was very patient with us and our dogs. We had three Chihuahuas that were completely running our house. If anyone came to the door, they were barked at and attacked (jumped on). This is no longer the case, and it only took 2 hours! The technique was very simple and easy for both us and our dogs to follow. The training was very interesting and informative. Our neighbors saw the Bark Busters car in our driveway and had questions. We have raved about the results to everyone and requested fliers. We had a friend come over the day after our initial visit, and he wanted to know what we had done to our dogs. We told him these were the results after one visit! Permalink

Doug was the exact trainer I was looking for. He was very professional and his techniques were easy with unbelievable results. I'm still amazed at how quickly he was able to correct my dog's behavior. It was a wonderful experience. Permalink
