There was an amazing difference even the next day! The barking was gone. The first quiet day since we got the Labs. Thank you so much. It even works for the squirrels. Permalink

I noticed significant changes in their behavior as John guided me through the techniques. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters. The transformation in our dogs is wonderful. I am so thankful for John's help. We're happier, the neighbors are happier, and I know the dogs are too! Permalink

OK, so I have tried other classes and was skeptical if home training would be worth it. Boy, am I a believer now. After months of classes our puppy would still not really listen, come when called, or stop nipping my hands and feet. I used Amy with Bark Busters and in less than 3 days my puppy stopped nipping! It has been over 3 months and he listens, comes when called and seems so much more relaxed. If Cesar Milan could see me now! Wow. Do not even hesitate to use Bark Busters if you want to have your dog listen to you AND be happy. When I add up the actual time I got to spend in class with the instructor and what it cost me, I got more time for less money with personal, in home training. I also got to work at my own pace and I have all the support I need for me and my dog. Very cool and well worth it. Permalink

Immediate results were visible and love that (the training) is not treat-based. We will be dropping cards in neighbor's yards, and we can't wait to learn more! Permalink

Dick allowed for LOTS of questions, which was very helpful in our understanding of the training techniques. One of our dogs is hard of hearing and arthritic-a senior-and the collar is sometimes painful for him. We're working around that, however, and understand this is a unique situation. We have two vocal beagles, with one of them being particularly LOUD. The education in the barking alone has made the training worth it! We're all glad to be living in a happier, better-communicating household, dogs included! Permalink

Whenever I had a question, Dick took the time to make sure I fully understood the answer BEFORE he moved on to the next subject or action. Mowgli is like a completely different dog. He is following the new rules without any type of argument. Now it's up to me to keep him this way. I especially like the training without the use of food or treats. I feel more confident that I will be able to continue this training. I learned that a lot of the responses that I'd been giving to my dog's behavior reinforced the bad traits that I was wanting to correct. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors! The techniques I learned will help me create the dog I'm wanting. Dick Messenger did not do the training for me, which was very good. I learn much better by doing than by watching. I've created the behavior I want out of my dog, so that I know that I can continue to accomplish this! Permalink

We have recently rescued a 3-year-old, male golden retriever and have a smaller, 4-year-old, female spitz. Gail helped us with several issues for each dog as well as the interaction between them. We now have the correct way to effectively work with our dogs in a loving and constructive manner. Thank you so much for an excellent program. Permalink

Our dog has benefited greatly from the training and has improved a lot. I was pleased with the training from day one because our experience has been so wonderful. Duffy has enjoyed his lessons with Chris as much as we have. What I loved about this training was how well we owners learned to work with our dog and how he trusts us. Permalink

Even though I was upset before we started, Alan made both me and my dog calm. I could walk and command my dog after the first session. My dog did not respond to food training. We had a good time training Captain Morgan. I had a puppy who nipped me before Bark Busters and who did not respond to training with treats. He now stopped nipping and obeys me! Permalink

Alan and Karen are very knowledgeable with their training. There was a big difference in Teddy's behavior after their very first session with us! Alan and Karen were very kind and considerate with Teddy and got excellent results using a gentle, yet firm, technique. The training was unique and consistently effective, producing amazing results without any abuse of Teddy! We would definitely recommend Bark Busters! Every owner should use this training process to be able to enjoy their pet's great behavior to the fullest extent. Karen and Alan both have a special gift and talent for educating both dogs and their owners! Permalink
