We have 2, two year old Chiweenies that we adopted a little over a month ago. They bark at all sorts of things, including the broom, steam cleaner, vaccum, hair dryer, anything moving in the yard or next door, etc. The male dog has been growling and charging at my boyfriends legs since we adopted him. Marsha was at our house for nearly an hour and had our two dogs behaving like angels! No more growling or barking after she used the tried and true Bark Busters methods. Marsha taught us how to gain control in our household. She was very knowledgeable and efficient. I would recommend her to anyone in the area in need of a well behaved / trained pup. Thanks Marsha!

Bark Busters... AMAZING. Here is my story. I rescued this sweet little chihuahua back in July. I soon learned really fast that she barked at everyone and everything. She would try to bite anyone that got near her. She loves me but even with friends over she made it hard because all she wanted to do was bite them and attack them. I called up Bark Busters and LEARNED SO MUCH. They showed me all the ways to help Izzy and correct her behavior. Now I am able to have friends over and I know how to let Izzy know that no one is there to hurt her or me. She has trust in my leadership and doesn't get aggressive towards my friends. On walks now, she simply ignores other dogs and people and trusts in my leadership that I am going to guide her and keep her safe. She has had amazing progress since the day I got her and I couldn't be happier! So thankful for Bark Busters! They are so great! Thank you Bark Busters! Permalink

Though she had learned basic commands, our greatest concern for our 11 month old Porti was her apparent aggressive tendencies. ONE visit with Derek and we were jumping for joy at the transformation of our pup. He immediately assessed the pups behavior, gave us some techniques to try and showed us our "aggressive" pup just needed better communication from us. She wasn't aggressive at all!! Derek worked with us, showing us how to give our pup the confidence she, and we, needed. He has returned to evaluate our progress and to make suggestions on improving our training techniques. He is always available, be it by phone or in person. We were so impressed with him that we signed our brand new puppy up for training with him. Permalink

Leigh Ann took the time to let my wife and I explain our history with Durant including some traumatic experiences for him while he was a puppy. She didn't look down on us for previously doing things incorrectly but was very understanding and encouraging. Her instructions were very simple and clear. Leigh Ann's training makes it fun for both the dog and dog owners. We are looking forward to implementing the training methods we've learned from Leigh Ann. Permalink

Jean did an amazing job in teaching us how to speak dog and become leaders! We were at our wits end before calling Jean. We were thinking something had to change or we wouldn't be able to keep Freddy due to everyone's safety. Within 24 hours of our first training session we noticed a difference. Now, three weeks later Freddy is a new dog and a member of our family/pack. People that have visited since his training began can't believe he's the same dog. Permalink

Trainer note from Jean : It's been rewarding to see the progress you have made with Freddy in such a short time. He is a sweet, smart boy and you are doing a super job with him!

Colin was so good at explaining the training. Lucy responded immediately. The steps to take are simple, the training materials are easy to use, and we feel confident in implementing the exercises. Thank you, Bark Busters, for a wonderful experience. Permalink

Anne was wonderful. From the moment she entered our home Lucy, our puppy changed. Lucy’s barking, biting and jumping up have improved significantly. We are only 3 days in and already see a difference. Permalink

Cody came today for our first visit and the improvement in our three little girls - two dachshunds and a yorkie - was absolutely amazing. He has such a calm but direct approach with the dogs and they responded so well to him and his techniques. So grateful to have found this company and more importantly to have Cody for our trainer. We have new dogs already and it's just the first day. Permalink
