Maril gave us techniques to use right away that worked. She taught us methods that were easy to use. She was very helpful, great techniques to use, it works even when Maril isn't here. Excellent scores in every category. (Cooper, Coon Hound, had bitten 3 people, baby was due in 3 weeks.) Permalink

I like the method over yelling and spanking. That's bad for everyone and accomplishes nothing. Maril has been Very Helpful. She explains the techniques and the reasoning behind them. Permalink

It's the Real Thing. It makes sense and brings calm to the dogs right away. I would not believe this method works so effectively if I had not seen it demonstrated before my eyes! Permalink

Anne George and Bark Busters completely saved our relationship with our dog. Our two and a half year old male pitbull had become frightened of nearly everything in his environment, distrusting of us and almost impossible to walk or introduce to new people. In just a few short visits Anne gave us the tools to rebuild our relationship with our dog and to lead him effectively and safely. Today he is a happy, healthy and easy going member of our household. We've seen amazing improvements in his over all temperament, our control of him when on walks or playing off leash and his response to commands, especially 'come'. Thanks Bark Busters! Permalink

The opening presentation was very informative. Finn catches on quickly which makes us motivated to keep up with the training. Not training with treats makes more sense. I found the experience truly fascinating and have already recommended Bark Busters! Dick has the perfect balance of accountability and empathy for our busy family - much appreciated! Permalink

Baltimore | June 08 2011
Prior to meeting with Anne George of Baltimore Bark Busters, our dog was gentle, yet very timid. For several months before working with Anne, our dog had been very reluctant to go on walks with me without my husband joining us. After working on the techniques taught by Anne, my husband and I were able to understand the passive dominance traits of our dog. Consistently following the Bark Busters training techniques, we immediately began to see positive results. In the first day, I was able to confidently handle my dog without my husband joining us on a walk. It has been several months since we first met with Anne and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the results of our Bark Busters education. Not to mention, our dog is more confident and happy in our family pack. I would strongly recommend working with Anne George because she cares that you and your dog have a healthy and happy relationship! Permalink

Everything was easy to understand, both the how and the why of it. The training exercises were sensible and easy to follow. I was astonished at what was accomplished and at Calhoun's progress in less than three hours. Amazing! I was pleased with the natural/humane training methods. They were so sensible and both dog and people friendly. I found the training process very interesting. It's the first time I ever found obedience training to be stress free and fun. I would recommend John to anyone who needed anything from basic obedience to very serious problems. I learned so much and actually enjoyed learning it. We made more progress in three hours than we had in three months. We went out for dinner tonight after following what we learned today. Calhoun went into his crate with some coaxing, but when we returned and hour and fifteen minutes later, dry as a bone! Thanks John! It was wonderful coming home and not having to clean up anything.

Linda explained everything very well, very easy to understand and patient. I was amazed that Baxter would do things without needing a treat. I like the idea of no treats and no harsh collars needed for training. "Bah" and training collar are a great help and very effective. Certainly makes training more interesting. I would definitley recommend Bark Busters to everyone. Nice people, Great techniques, easy to understand training and lifetime support! I am thrilled that Baxter is learning so fast. Riding in the car with Baxter has become much easier and more enjoyable. Permalink
