Alan explained what we think, but also what the dog thinks and relates to -- which will make us better owners. We most definitely noticed results by the end of the training! Gus responded almost immediately to Alan and us using the Bark Busters techniques. The time Alan spent with us and our dog was a most rewarding time. We would absolutely recommend Bark Busters to our friends and neighbors. Old techniques are just that, old! This program helps you to understand your dog! Ron and I would like to thank Alan and Bark Busters for a more behaved (less of a barker) and happier dog!
