It was amazing that the very night we had John out for training, we were able to sit down for a meal and the dogs listened and stayed in the other room with no fighting. We are still working with them, but they are already 100% better! Permalink

My trainer with bark buster was Connie. She has arrived every time I have called her on time and each time with a different training subject. Molly was bad about running to the door when company came and jumping on them. We have taight her to stop on the steps and wait, she can now sit, go to her bed, stay, "give me five" hand shake, say her prayers, lay and finally after several tries with different methods, ride quietly in the car on a trip. I really enjoyed working with Connie as she showed me different methods to control Molly's actions. She also has learned to walk beside me with a different lead that Connie recommended. I also, after using Connie, found out thru neighbors and other friends, that she has made a significant difference with their pets in training and applying the methods she gave us. I highly recommend using her and Bark Busters. Permalink

Emma L Reno, Nevada | November 15 2013
After moving to Reno in September from opposite ends of the country, my boyfriend and I struggled to introduce our dogs and maintain a peaceful household. We quickly decided to seek professional help, and spoke to multiple trainers in the area. Katherine was by far the friendliest and most helpful trainer I talked to. She came to our rescue in early October with the perfect tools and guidance to teach us how help our dogs. She has been such a wonderful resource. I would recommend Katherine and Bark Busters to every dog parent! Permalink

Linda G Poway, California | November 15 2013
We got Bailey, a Portuguese Water Dog, at eight weeks of age and met with Jan a few days after bringing our puppy home. Jan's training with us and the dog, was amazing. When we adopted Hank, we knew we needed to make sure Hank had the same great training. People always tell us we have great dogs and it's thanks to Jan. I often refer people who decide not to hire a trainer...and it shows in their dogs! If you want to hear "you have great dogs", hire Jan to help you! Permalink

Ellen T Oak Forest, Illinois | November 15 2013
Vicky gave us very clear guidance and she always showed us each training technique before we tried ourselves. I noticed results immediately on the first try for most techniques. I found the training very fun! My dog was so happy during each session. Vicky is such an upbeat person she makes the sessions so fun! Permalink

Kurt Schroeder from Bark Busters was spectacular. My English Bulldog Dudley was very aggressive and territorial in our neighborhood. Kurt showed us within the first 15 minutes how to get Dudley's attention and get him under control -- and it only got better as we went. Along. By the end of the very first session, Dudley was walking at heel right past the people in the neighborhood to whom he used to bark and lunge toward. We were amazed. The techniques and training really is for the people -- Kurt showed us what to do to make Dudley feel that we are in control and we are the leaders, so he doesn't have to be. Just remarkable. Even more important, Kurt called us before the first class to discuss the dog and his situation. Then, he called before the class to tell us what to do with the dog when he came in, etc. Kurt calls and confirms before each lesson and ALWAYS is right on time. Honestly, we could not ask for a better experience. Permalink
