Trainer note from Joshua : Bodie is a great little pup but sense he has been in charge in the home this has led to him being aggressive. Today we showed him he has nothing to worry about and Hayley is in control. He responded very well and for the first time did really well with a guest in the home! They were very pleased with our results today!

Kevin was very easy to understand explaining the training methods. We are very happy with our dogs reaction towards the methods used. We are having great results with the dogs! The barking has almost completely stopped. We just say "Bah" and all 3 dogs stop barking at the same time. We are very happy in the difference, in such a short time. Thank you so much!!!! Permalink

In short: If there is any textbook case of a literal crazy dog being educated to understand my behavioral expectations of him, Keith from Bark Busters helped me achieve that. My dog is a very anxious and wired 2.5 yr old GSD. I have never met another dog as aggressive towards strangers as my dog. He is truly the neighborhood-terrorizer. Here are a few things that Keith helped us with: 1. Having people inside the house - my dog will never be happy about it and won’t seek attention/pets, but he will now tolerate strangers in the house. We keep him on leash or in muzzle if he is on edge but it is a HUGE improvement, as I can now have family over. 2. Barking at strangers during walks - my dog used to be on alert if there is movement 5 blocks away. Now he is relatively relaxed unless they get within 50ft, for which his hackles will be up. However, if he starts barking, I use Keith’s correction strategy so that my dog stops almost right away and redirects attention. 3. Pulling on leash - my dog has knocked me to the floor before, while on a fitted HS prong collar. He is now off the prong collar and pulls minimally, only when he sees a particular tree he wants to pee on. Still training this but IMMENSE improvement. 4. Listening to my commands - my dog is pretty good at this because he wants to please me, but the “leave it” and “drop” command were always harder, especially during walks. Now with only a verbal correction, he listens on the 1st time. My dog is not perfect but now we have a structured approach to work through tough situations. I am VERY happy with the training that me, my boyfriend and my dog received. Permalink

Hugh K Greenwich, Connecticut | July 01 2022
We were thrilled with our training session with Michael Konstantaras . Our 2 french bull dogs responded immediately to the coaching Michael provided . It was amazing. Michael at all times made sure we were understanding his methods . He was a gifted teacher both to us and to our dogs . He dispels the notion that you can't teach an old dog new tricks . We saw immediate positive results in our dogs behaviors . I highly recommend Michael too anyone looking for help ! Thank you thank you Michael !!!!!!!!! Permalink

Justin was INCREDIBLE. Highly recommend!!! He was truthful about the challenges of my dog and the situation in general. His feedback was so honest and genuine despite the difficult nature of my dog. I can’t recommend him any higher. Thanks so much Justin. Permalink

Our two rescues needed to have some behaviors addressed, and we feel more comfortable now after our 3-hour session with them and ourselves than during the four years we have had them. They were feeling insecure and now we have the tools to help! Thank you! Permalink

Trainer note from Joshua : Rascal and Roo responded very well during our first session today! We worked through their barking and door manners. They are fearful of new people and men! Today was the first time they had someone new in the home and didn't bark! Brad was very pleased with our progress today! Now with them being the leader in their life the dogs can finally relax and follow Brads lead!
