Barbara worked with us to help us with our two rescue dogs, a boxer and a boxer mix. Chopper and Maggie.
We really liked her. She has a very nice, friendly, calm demeanor. Chopper and Maggie liked her too!
One of the issues we were having is that we could not answer the front door without them barking and jumping like crazy. Frankly it had gotten to the point that unless it was friends or family I wouldn't even open the door at times. They are both still learning but doing well in their training of the front door "no go zone". What a relief.
Barbara spoke to to us at the first of our meeting without the dogs present explaining the program and the philosophy she uses. It was pretty easy to understand but you don't know what you don't know, so the information was very much appreciated.
We are working on the leash training and I am personally feeling more like I am walking my dogs instead of the other way around.
Also they are learning to wait patiently for us to exit or enter a door until they are invited to follow behind us.
We've only been at this for about 4 days but I can honestly say there is much improvement already.
Another great thing, lifetime visits included if you need their help, or if you just need to talk via email or telephone.
Thank you very much to Barbara and Bark Busters!

Trainer note from Barbara :
It was a pleasure meeting and working with this nice couple and their dogs. They are making excellent progress.
