We felt James used a great analogy to help us understand the techniques -"Humans can think like a dog, but a dog cannot think like a human." Our neighbor came over right after our first lesson and Otis, our one-year-old puppy, circled him wagging his tail but didn't jump! The natural techniques seemed to be way more effective than food/treats and yelling. We found the levels of dog communication very interesting and were amazed at how quickly Otis responded to us. We already see a dramatic difference in his behavior as well as the enhancement of our bond. We are first-time dog owners and need the training more than he does! Permalink

We were very impressed with how quickly our two dogs stopped jumping up on our kids and their friends. Jack showed us how to get the dogs to respond to our commands in the first 15 minutes of the first lesson. Good follow-up and support. Permalink

I wanted to tell you how happy I am with Bark Busters training for me and Dutch. She's the best dog I've ever had now. I don't have any problems with her. She's such a beautiful dog. She's never mean. She's not an evil dog. She's just a good dog. Thank you! Permalink

I'm really impressed with the effect of the training on the dogs-in just a day or two, it's really turning things around. I've been using all the techniques we went over in the first session. I took them for a long walk and used the techniques, and they really work. I can't wait to see the rest of what you have going. Keeping them away from the door, the biggest problem I've always had with them, that has really turned out. They are doing exactly that and giving me time to go in and out, and when people come to ring the bell, they aren't barking so much already. I spend a lot of time with them, so I know it takes me too; I care and I appreciate that you've given me that information and knowledge to help me in a mutual way. I thank you very much and look forward to seeing you next time. I appreciate you for the work you are doing. Permalink

"Think Like A Dog?? " Yes! Think like a dog, and Scot will provide you with the skill set to do so effectively. I was so amazed to see how our dogs responded to Scot ... The dogs are responsive, relaxed, and willing to please. We are a work in progress, and Scot has been incredibly supportive along the way. I highly recommend the Bark Busters training program, and Scot as your guide through this incredibly powerful process. [ WOOF ! ] :) :) Permalink

I would like to start this by saying that I have worked at Patterson Dog and Cat Hospital for the past four years at the front desk and have always owned dogs. Maril and Bob came and did an inservice for us, and I was very impressed with them and had them come out to help me with my newest dog, a three-year-old German Shepherd named "Pepper." Pepper was a rescue that had been with our family for two years, and he was so ill-behaved. It was almost impossible to take him for a walk, he would jump and try to get to any other dog that would walk by us. He pulled the leash to the point that my arm would hurt. When we had company, he was rude and jumped on anyone that came through the door. Pepper also had the bad habit of crowding me at the door when he wanted to go out, and he would race me up the stairs, which was so dangerous for both of us. He would always whine constantly, which was very upsetting. Maril came to my house and started to train me on how to talk to my dog, and the results are nothing short of amazing. Pepper no longer does the constant whining for attention; he is calm and relaxed. The techniques that Maril and Bob teach are so easy to learn and the results are immediate. Just a few minutes a day for a happy, well-adjusted dog is thing of beauty. I enjoy Pepper so much more and look forward to many happy springtime strolls once I get the leash training down. I cannot say enough good about Bark Busters and their training techniques, which doesn't involve treats or threats or any kind of punishment. I would also like to thank Maril for taking the time to explain things to my husband, who wasn't quite on board with the training until he spent some time with her. Thank you, Maril, for training my husband as well!! Is there anything you can't do???!!!! Permalink
