Last Summer, Dinozzo, my Chihuahua mix and I, moved to the Gulf Coast, and one of the major changes for Dinozzo was that he was around more kids and people as I used to live alone in the suburbs or Chicago. As a result, Dinozzo became very territorial and more aggressive when visitors or delivery people came to the house. This was a major concern as I was afraid that Dinozzo would attack someone, so something needed to be done about his behavior or I would have to give him back to the adoption company that I got him from in 2010. I first tried a person whom used very aggressive training methods to curb his aggressiveness, and neither Dinozzo or I was comfortable with this technique, so I searched the web for alternate training ideas. I came across Bark Busters, which I had seen advertised at a few places, and decided to give them a call, and I setup a meeting at the house with Maureen McManus, their trainer on the Gulf Coast. Once Maureen arrived at the house, Dinozzo was barking his head off and wanted nothing to do with Maureen. It became very difficult hearing Maureen while Dinozzo was in the room, so he was put in his kennel in the back bedroom. He continued to bark for quite some time until he tired himself out. During this time, Maureen went over the program with my wife and I, and this last about 90 minutes. We then brought Dinozzo back in the room and started applying the training exercises with him, under Maureen's direction and correction, and he started adopting a better behavior over the next two hours. Over the next three weeks, I trained Dinozzo 2-3 times a day for about 10 minutes each, following the training exercises that Maureen prescribed, and Dinozzo became a much better dog. The first follow-up session, Maureen saw a marked difference in Dinozzo as he was more calm when she came to the door, and even came to her when called. I continued to follow the training program over the next couple of weeks, and Maureen came over for another follow-up session and was shocked at how quiet and playful Dinozzo had become since the first time she met him. Needless to say, we are quite happy with our Bark Busters experience and I have recommended them to friends and family on the Gulf Coast, as well as the Chicago area. Many thanks go out to Maureen and Bark Busters. Permalink

Finding out what you're doing wrong isn't always enjoyable, but it's fixable. I would recommend John Sullivan of Bark Busters. Permalink

Laura was very knowledgeable and I was amazed at the change in Cody when she left. She also recognized that I was the one who needed the most training. I was very pleasantly surprised. Permalink
