Trainer note from Joshua : Angie is a great little pup! She responded very well during our first session! We addressed a lot of the basics and also her separation anxiety. I will be seeing her soon and am looking forward to her progress.

Today's training session was different than any other we have had! The dogs were responsive and seem to be able to adapt to the training right away. I am hopeful for the future. Permalink
Bark Busters dealt with Aggression
Trainer note from Joshua : Really great first session. Baxley and Maddie responded very well. We addressed Baxley's aggression in the home. We are working with her over the coming weeks and i am looking forward to her progress. With Jamie being consistent she will continue to improve.

John and Diane are truly miracle workers. Many life-changing events left my dog, Miss Carter, very anxious around other people and dogs. As others have noted, I was skeptical of training that didn’t involve treats or punishment, but we gave it a shot. What I learned early is that the training was more for me and the results were phenomenal… you could tell she was a different dog from the first training and it just compounded with each additional training. She is so much more calm, confident and happy – and EVERYONE has noticed it. She even has a new dog best friend that she plays with all the time. I only wish we had found John and Diane sooner!

8.2021 There comes a point in every dog lover’s life when you have to get REAL honest with yourself about the successes you want your furry loved one to have while interacting with people, animals, the delivery person at the door, the rogue, “super friendly” off leash nightmare, the neighbor they see through the window, the “new” furry addition to the family or just taking a general walk to the mailbox. I adopted a 3yr old deaf Australian Cattle Dog (currently 7 yrs old) with a very questionable past we shall say, we went through 3 years together just her and I ruling our roost like two girls would. I gave her the best training I knew how (and I thought I knew how – I mean, I grew up on a ranch, we always had cow dogs, what didn’t I know about this breed) - (fast-forward a year) 2 surgeries for the cow dog, a bad motorcycle accident for me, a new boyfriend and a 2nd deaf dog combined our worlds. (A little knowledge on the 2nd deaf dog, she is a 4y old boxer who was attacked by a pitbull and left her with staples in her front and back leg. This dog feared everything in her world and was brought into a new home with a girl human and a cow dog she didn’t know) The Cow Dog was having NO PART of a 2nd dog in this house – Nope, not even a little bit – we went from smooth sailing to barking, biting, fighting, whining, territorial, unpredictability overnight. In walks Adrienne Greene – Bing Bang Boom, 3 hours later, lots of homework, lots of grace for us humans and our furry counter parts, lots of education and I personally learned the things I thought I knew was in part, me trying to humanize/rationalize a dog’s reactions logically instead of getting on their level, learning their language – one morning spent with Adrienne was a Game Changer for both dogs, and both fur loving dog parents. The end result of a 3-hour session: Cow Dog was calm, relaxed and focused on me for direction (being deaf that is huge in our communication skills) no longer looking to try to rule this roost. The Boxer dogs anxiety was melting away in front of our eyes, she is and continues to gain confidence and looks to us for direction and security. (And we are just getting started, but we are starting now in a peaceful, cohesive, trainable household) I can honestly say you are doing yourself and your furry family member a huge disservice if you have any issues/questions surrounding dog behavior in any stage and do not engage Adrienne Greene for help. PS – do yourself a favor and stay off the “worlds best training web sites” you will thank yourself later (or like me, mid-session) I was doing the preverbal forehead slap for wasting so much time thinking I was doing the right thing for my dog. Pupdate: 5.2022 Almost a year later we needed to do an in-home session with Adrienne again to help our boxer dog with a new set of anxious behaviors, it took less than an hour to address and redirect her anxiety and help her to calm herself down and become a quiet dog again.

I am so grateful my vet referred me to Bark Busters! Alex has been very helpful, she is always there anytime I have questions. I called Bark Busters for my aggressive Boston Terrier. He had bit multiple people and I didn’t want to lose him. Alex helped me with his aggression, basic obedience, anxiety, barking and walking on leash. I can’t recommend Alex enough! Permalink

Alex has helped me so much with my German Shepherd. She had horrible separation anxiety. She would break out of her crate and eat through walls. Alex helped me with my anxious shepherd with natural training techniques. I highly recommend Bark Busters! Permalink

Trainer note from Joshua : Rosie is a really great puppy she responded very well during our first session. Sophie is an old dog that is learning new tricks! We worked through a lot of the puppy basics and addressed Sophies barking and aggression. With Jonah being consistent and working with them they will continue to improve! I am really looking forward to seeing their progress over the coming weeks.

We were blown away with Joshua’s knowledge and ability to explain the methodology behind the training techniques and how they’ve been developed with the way dogs think in mind. We saw immediate results with our pup Captain and are eager to continue our training at home now that Joshua has given us the tools we need to adjust Captain’s behavior. Captain is on his way to becoming a happier, calmer, more well-adjusted member of the family as we continue our training. We’re very grateful for Joshua’s help and insight! I highly recommend Joshua and Bark Busters to anyone that wants to see results with their dog without the use of harsh tactics, but rather through positive reinforcement. Permalink

I've watched the shows, read the books, even went to dog training academies... yet, my house was not my own. I live in a Dog House not MY house. Somewhere along the way, I stopped really enjoying my dogs and became their personal butler. Theresa devoted half a day to observe my interactions with my dogs, to patiently explain dog psychology and provide me with a foundation to then apply the training techniques. Never before has the 'why' behind the techniques ever been so thoroughly explained to me. By the time Theresa left, my entire pack was calmer, receptive and I could actually open the front door without a canine stampede. I can't describe how empowering this day has been. For months, I've felt very defeated and resigned to having to apologize for how poorly behaved my dogs are. I'm going to be working diligently applying my new knowledge until our next lesson. Already this evening, I enjoyed my supper without a horde of beggars around the table harassing me. The dogs are calm and relieved that I'm slowly stepping back into the role of confident pack leader. Isn't this why we have dogs? To blissfully coexist with them? To be understood by them? To have fun with them? If you're like me and you've lost your dogs' respect and you're frustrated, then call Theresa. She's knowledgeable, professional, patient and passionate about her work. Your dog will learn so much, and so will you. Permalink
