I am fostering a dog for a local rescue since mid-January 2011. She is a 4-6 year old Bichon/Maltese and is a retired breeder puppy mill dog that has lived her entire life in a cage. She is however a sweetheart but very shy and entirely untrained. We've patiently worked with her and she's made improvements but we hit a wall with her separation anxiety and nothing was working. She bonded with me to the extent that if she left my side she would bark uncontrollably until I returned. To make the matters worse, when she was anxious and barked she lost control and always pooped in the house. I called Greg who picked up and he agreed to promptly visit us for a private session. He was very generous to not charge for this consultation since this was a foster dog, which was highly appreciated by us and the rescue. To say that Greg was outstanding is an understatement. He first set and talked with us to understand the problem and the environment around the dog. Then, he was able to make the dog stay though we had never been able to do this, and he worked on basic obedience and separation anxiety. Greg managed to immediately control the dog and put her in a calm state of mind, as I left the house several times practicing realistic scenarios that had been problematic until that time. Greg patiently helped us understand how to communicate with the dog; he gave a presentation of the Bark Busters methodology, and showed us how to use training tools indoors/outdoors. The results were instantaneous, amazing and fantastic, there has been no more barking since his visit. Greg returned for a follow up visit and also e-mailed us specific instructions and homework in order to keep up the great Bark Buster leadership training. He also gave us handout materials for further reading. I say it without hesitation that Greg is the best dog trainer I have worked with and I very highly recommend him. He has helped change the fate of this rescue dog from unadoptable to entirely adoptable, and he has single-handedly ensured that this dog who has had a horrible past will now have a home sweet home to call her own. Thank you very much, Greg!
