We think it is working. We really liked Mark! So far so good! We will have to really work at being consistent and following through on the techniques Mark taught us. Permalink

I have a 7 year old rescued dog, Boomer, who had some fearful nipping behaviour which started to escalate. I moved from Guam to Az with 4 rescued dogs and a cat and although Boomer is the biggest of the pack, he is the most insecure and fearful. I contacted Gerard and he came to my house to meet Boomer and the pack. With Gerard's patience and firm, but assertive way of training both me and the dog, I could see a marked change in Boomer's behaviour when walking on a leash as I don't get pulled into the cacti. We are still working and meeting Gerard twice a month, but every time I can see a difference in Boomer and we seem to understand each other better. Gerard's techniques are wonderful and I will recommend him to all families with dogs with "issues." Permalink

Rachel was very thorough in her explanations and answered all questions I asked. She was very helpful and made everything clear and understandable. I did see immediate changes in Blossom. She clearly understands and caught on quickly to the training methods. Permalink

Dear Wendy, I am overwhelmingly impressed with Bark Busters' program and your methods, especially. My Maltese Poodle, Phoebe, was uncontrollable in many areas and has shown immediate improvement. She is more aware and understands the commands without hesitation. She loves and enjoys Trainer Wendy Blanch and I feel indebted to her for her time and patience with Phoebe and me. The training is well worth the investment and I thank you very, very much. Sincerely and with love, Phoebe and Edythe Stahnke Permalink

After working with Donald Cohen and Bark Busters, our dog Daisy is a different dog. She is calmer and better behaved. It is rewarding to see the natural training techniques that Donald showed us how to use. His knowledge and the way he explained things were truly helpful. The training is sometimes a challenge because our dog tries to test us, but when we remember to remain calm and patient as we were shown, it works well. We would recommend Bark Busters, if you are willing to put in a little time and follow what they teach you. Like we said, Daisy is a different dog. Thank you! Permalink

When we adopted our German Shepherd we were told of his fearful anxiety around new people. I was not comfortable with taking our dog anywhere or having anyone come to our home. I wanted to rule out any aggressive behaviors so I had Bark Busters step in. Thankfully Donald Cohen, our trainer came into our lives and our home! I was so glad that we were able to find "home" dog training for our GSD. Donald is very thorough and patient with teaching each new exercise with King and myself. After each training visit, it was so helpful to receive a "lesson review" which covered everything Donald taught us during his visit. Donald is always accommodating when scheduling days and times for our training sessions. And now thanks to Donald's lessons and the Bark Busters' training collar, we can take King anywhere. I cannot say enough about how thankful I am to have found the guidance and training we have been shown from Donald and Bark Busters! I am so proud of King and very honored to be his leader. Permalink

Mark did an excellent job in his presentation. The technique really works. Very pleased. Previous trainers gave so many treats which I didn't like and the dog got sick. Both my husband and I have learned to be the pack leaders. Jac's issues were resolved with the techniques we applied within one week. It was amazing. We had other trainers for our rescue dog and we were totally disappointed as no results or changes were made with all the time and money we spent. Permalink
