For the first time in over a week, we were able to get ready this morning and not hear the dog chasing the cat! AMAZING! And this afternoon we will do our homework with the other exercises, but thank you so much for your time yesterday! Permalink

I had been searching for help to manage my sometimes aggressive/dominant male GSD. I think I read most books on the market; then, I contacted Bark Busters. Wendy came to my house and taught me quite a number of ways to work with him. Within the time she was here, with only a few practices, not only had I taught him what I wanted him to do, but my other two dogs got in the act and they learned, also. I am so impressed with the Bark Busters philosophy that I want to join their pack and have a franchise of my own. Thank you, Wendy! Permalink

We have a German shepherd/sheltie mix, Kianna. She is 1½ years old. Very sweet but was definitely the alpha dog. She would bolt to and out the door, chew on everything and pull us on the leash. She had a terrible habit of stealing anything that was dropped, including the kids' homework, toys, shoes, paper, and food. After the first visit with Dale, she was a totally different dog. By the end of week #2, she became the perfect dog. She now only plays with her toys, does not chew on anything, and is a perfect lady on the leash. She has become very relaxed and submissive and is a wonderful companion to all of us. Our life used to revolve around her, and now she fits right into our lifestyle and schedule. What a difference. My husband was very skeptical at first, but now is thankful for the training and the change in Kianna. Dale was very patient and was a life saver! I recommend him to all of m friends with dogs! Thank you! Permalink

My husband and I have a 7-lb adorable cockapoo. She'll be a year old next month. At about 6 months, she started doing a lot of yapping. We wanted a small dog that we could puppy litter train -- but NOT a barker. Then my father was ill so I was out of town for 2 weeks. Permalink

Patrick was very professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. Morgan's (miniature dachshund) pack leaders were well trained and so was Morgan by the end of the training. We observed noticeable results. We were pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters because of the pet-friendly training. The training experience was interesting and enjoyable. It was unbelievable to see how quickly the training took effect and how easy it was. We would recommend Bark Busters because of the natural training techniques. At no time is your pet physically abused. I (Dede) work with the inmates that are involved with the Cell Dog Program at the Lee County Jail. Bark Busters would be a better way to train. Permalink

At the end of the training, it was like a different dog that we were talking about. I had no idea at all how to have a dog, and Princess was completely training us. I was totally pleased with the training, it was very informative. Permalink

Patrick is an excellent trainer and the Bark Busters approach is very kind to my dog. Patrick explained the training techniques in a way that was easy to follow and understand. We observed noticeable results by the end of the training. Button, a miniature schnauzer, was walking by my side very well. We are pleased with the natural training used by Bark Busters. The training experience was interesting and enjoyable. We have already recommended Bark Busters. Permalink

Bob Frecker saved Bella from going back to the Humane Society. She has made such an amazing turn around from his first visit with us. He taught us to be calm, assertive pack leaders, and now we are the ones in control. Great job, Bob - we will spread the word!!! Permalink

Well worth the money! The techniques work and are not difficult to apply. I also like that their approach doesn't involve rough physical contact nor does it rely on food/treats to get results. Robin is patient and personable, and has an excellent command of the techniques. We saw results within the 2 hours she was there. Thanks, Robin and Bark Busters. Permalink

St. Louis | March 26 2008
Kathy was kind, gentle, insightful but firm. It is amazing to have Woody under control. I loved the program. I didn't want to be mean -- just in charge and there is no abuse which is so important. I felt like Kathy was a friend with great advice. I have told tons of people about Bark Busters and have highly recommended you. We have had several visitors and Woody has done tremendously well. We are so pleased. Woody seems more relaxed and not always "on duty." Thank you, thank you, thank you. Permalink
