Leigh Ann was very helpful in teaching us simple techniques to manage behavioral problems. We saw success immediately and are working to reinforce and build on this. It’s reassuring that she is available for questions and help as needed. Very pleased with service! Permalink

We felt very positive about our time with Leigh Ann. We understood her instructions, and the thought process behind it. With her expertise in reading a dogs' body language, we understand Winnie better now. Permalink

Robert was excellent and very patient. Cody tends to be a little stubborn but I learned how to deal with it thanks to Robert. Believe it or not, I can actually tell you that after his visit I already am seeing a change in his behavior. I will continue to apply all the training tools that Robert has shown me. Thanks so much and would highly recommend Robert. Permalink

First lessons went well. However we have regressed some. Perhaps we just need to work harder with him. Permalink

We were at our wits end with our 5year old cavalier Bailey. He had begun marking in the house on the corners of the beds, (and yes he's been fixed for ages) and barking at every loud noise/sound. Thunder coats, anxiety meds did nothing. We had NO idea that is was a lack of leadership or how to communicate to HIM that we did not want him reacting in that manner. Thunderstorms are now no big deal... a single "BAAAH" and he's moved on to something else. Jeri was WONDERFUL and cannot say enough about all the time she spent explaining the why behind the behavior. We have a different dog now and it has totally changed the stress level in our household. THANK YOU!!! Permalink

Bark Busters dealt with Other, Separation anxiety
Trainer note from Joshua : They were stuck with there pup and could not get him up stairs missed work and spent hours out side. When they reached out I rescheduled plans and meet them right away. I was really happy to be able to have Brodie going up and down the stairs. We are also working on his separation anxiety. I will be hearing from them soon and will continue working with them till we reach success with his anxiety.

I can never thank Amanda enough for showing me how to properly communicate with my dogs! They no longer bark at people passing by, pull on their leashes on walks and I can finally feel secure with them off leash to come back when called. Best service ever, wish I discovered Amanda sooner! Permalink

I'm sure Bark Busters deserves some credit too, but Connie was absolutely AMAZING ! Our 2 dogs changed their behavior DRAMATICALLY within 5 minutes of Connie walking through our front door. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Granted, our 2 Golden Doodles are smart and loving, but they are 6 months and 15 months old, full of energy, and over 50 lbs each. When they got excited, they would rev each other up so much that it was nearly impossible to calm them down. Barking, jumping, mouthing (not biting, but hard enough that it would make you nervous if you didn't know them), pulling really hard on leash. We were worried that someday they were gonna knock or pull our 74 yr old mother down, as they both stay with her. ALL of that stopped, truly, almost within 5 minutes, because she taught us how to "speak Dog", and they responded to it immediately. Of course, we continue to reinforce what she taught us, and they still need a little individual leash work before we can walk them together, but they are absolutely different dogs now. After one session! It was so rapidly effective that it was stunning! And, they are calmer and happier now as well. Connie is fantastic !!! If you are reading this, do it ! Permalink

Paula Hinz and Bark Busters have been a life saver for me and my little buddy DJ. Paula has a vast and comprehensive understanding of the dog and human relationship, possessing great effective training tools to improve the bond between the dog and owner. Paula's training approach goes beyond conventional "sit" and "shake" methods as she really understands the psychology behind a dog's actions and how it impacts and/or affects the dog's behavior. Through Paula's training, I have developed a strong leadership role with DJ, allowing him and I to navigate through this crazy human world of ours with confidence and success. Baaaah!!! Permalink

Having Jeri here was the first step to helping us with our sweet Dexter. Also, it is our salvation by Jeri coming to see us. We have been doing this for only 3 days so far and we already see a difference in Dexter’s behavior. Jeri was very informative and patient with us while going through the lesson plan. We can’t wait to keep on seeing results every day. Permalink
