The techniques were easy for our dog to understand as well as for her people so the results were immediate. We understand that what we learned is not a quick fix & needs to be ongoing - but the ideas are easy enough to remember and do consistently. Anyone who doesn't "understand" probably needs a course in basic English comprehension. :-) ~ It was interesting because the reasons for doing things made us think about how dogs process their life in ways we had not thought about. We would absolutely recommend Bark Busters - everyone's dog should be trained and after listening to a trainer at a local pet supplies store telling a dog to "shut up" we knew we had to find another option. Maril was great & very patient with us. Permalink

Delilah is not as bright as she could be but there was a huge change for the better after just one visit. Everything made sense to us and while Bob was here she behaved very well. Delilah is learning but we at times forget and aren't as consistent as we should be. I've already told several people as well as the vets' office about the program. It all makes sense and we were very happy that we decided to use Bark Busters. Permalink

She took her time to explain everything, even going back when one of our party was late. The biggest problem we had was Callaway's running to the door and barking whenever the doorbell rang. In one training lesson (2.5 hours) he was done! Even though I have a hard time remembering to growl instead of saying "no," Callaway responds when he sees the training aids. The training was very enjoyable - we had a good time watching Callaway's responses and I have already recommended Christine. I hope the use her! Permalink

Before I hired Christine to train Clifford (our golden) and Max (our Newfoundland/Lab puppy) I investigated thoroughly and would not have used a trainer who used a shock collar or relied on food rewards. Christine is both personable and professional and she knew just how much detail to provide. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters and Christine to friends and neighbors. Permalink

John did a great job explaining and coaching. In one week's time, we are enjoying Otis so much more! HE is happier, too! Permalink

Totally fascinating!! Lisa helped me see that training can be fun both dog and owner. The technique is flawless, whether for a general regimen or a specific problem. ~ Sometimes dog trainers and breeders lack good interpersonal skills -- more comfortable with animals than humans --- but Lisa is a warm, engaging individual who established great rapport easily, both with my wonderful puppy and me. Beeker does not let strangers pick him up, but by the end of the session, he sat in her lap! Permalink

Excellent on all counts. Our neighbors were very impressed with our "new" dog. She seems more passive and subdued in the condo too. Permalink

Dear Patrick, Thank you and thank you again for helping us transform our household. The lack of drama is extraordinary! We did a parking lot experiment last week that really blew us away. ~ We put the dogs in the back--Gracie in her kennel--and went to Petsmart and Target. Usually Gracie would be barking before we left the house. Instead of the dogs being in the vigilant stance looking for the danger, both of them curled up and went to sleep!! Shelley even got a woman with a dog in her shopping basket to drive right up the the back window. Not a peep. Wow. Amazing. It's really a different household. We thank you again and we so appreciate the follow up, the materials, etc. What an excellent company! Permalink
