Jack was recommended by my vet after my adoption of a Heinz 57 from a shelter. I learned so many things from watching him interact with my new dog. The behavior changes are amazing after only 3 sessions! I thought I knew a lot about dog behavior, having had dogs for most of my life, but this method is really fabulous and easy. He takes time to explain, demonstrate and then critique you as you try the new things. This really worked well for both me and the dog. I really recommend this trainer. Permalink

I appreciate the revisit forms with the notes given to me so that I can read and review. I was surprised and pleased when Sandy's behavior improved immediately. I was impressed with how well the techniques worked. Maril is very knowledgeable, professional and effective. I appreciate the quick response Maril always gives to my email questions. Permalink

June and Colin were very thorough, and left us with written instructions for Daisy's training as well as explaining the training techniques in a way that was easy to follow and understand. We observed noticeable results by the end of the first session - she now walks really nicely on the leash and permits me to go through doors first. I am pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters as I do not like heavy handed training techniques. The time with June and Colin flew by. We both learned a lot. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters! Permalink

Max is a very difficult dog.... This is the ONLY method that has ever worked! I had no hope before of ever having a peaceful and happy home with Max. I was even considering returning him to the rescue where we adopted him. The past few weeks have been the calmest, least stressful, least destructive weeks since we adopted Max 5 years ago. I actually enjoy being home with him and don't hide from him anymore. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY! THANK YOU!! Permalink

Jerry did an excellent job in explaining and showing us the natural training techniques. We definitely observed noticeable results by the end of the training. Norman is much better behaved and he is a joy to be around and take places. The training experience was interesting and enjoyable. Thanks to Jerry, we now have what it takes to be great pack leaders. Thank you Jerry! Permalink

No force was needed to help me walk my dog at heel. I think I needed as much training as my dog! I recommend Bark Busters. Permalink

I cannot thank Keith enough for his help. As the owner of a White German Sheperd and Puggle, I found myself being more lenient with the "little one", which turned him into a little terror...barking at everything, jumping on everything and everybody, showing severe separation anxiety and being extremely possessive of everyone and everything around him. He always seemed to be in a state of high alert, never being able to calm down or relax. I was at my wits end when Keith showed up and performed a miracle. Within a few hours he was able to train me to be the leader my dogs needed. It is now a month later and I am sitting here with both dogs quietly napping at my feet. Thank you Keith for giving me and my pets a calmer and much happier home. You are the best! Permalink

We appreciated the oral, visual and demonstration of instructions and natural training techniques very much - no harsh, bad training. We definitely observed noticeable results at the end of just one lesson - not perfect, but well on our way. The whole training experience was both interesting and enjoyable, and in fact we recommended Bark Busters before our own training session, and she is thrilled with her results too. Across the street neighbors are astonished and amazed at the progress. It was a pleasure working with you. Permalink

I've never seen my dogs behave so well after only 2 hours with Rachel. From the moment Rachel arrived I knew she was the right trainer. She taught me so much in 2 hours! Permalink
