I feel like we have a different dog living in our house. Since the initial visit with Scott she is a calmer, more relaxed version of herself and we love it. Even our friends and neighbors have noticed and commented on how positively different our WillaBee is! The training and reasoning behind the training just clicked for our dog and us. It just works and it works almost immediately. We have the tools to work with her everyday. We see remarkable improvement in distance control, barking, walking/back leash training, jumping up, and attention seeking behavior. Our household is much happier since Bark Busters. Permalink

Great first experience with Ben! Very knowledgable and established excellent "dog talking" foundation. I was surprised to see such great results after the *first* session that carried over even after Ben left. Our anxious dog with separation anxiety already appears calmer as we build an even stronger relationship with effective communication. We are looking forward to continued partnership and results!

The training session was really helpful and informative. Joshua handled Charlie and Reptar excellently. He was clear with his directions and plan for our dogs. He leaned into and touched on every one of our concerns. We would definitely recommend. Permalink
Trainer note from Joshua : Charlie has been barking and becoming more reactive over time. Finally, Belinda had enough and contacted me, today we addressed her issues and Charlie's behavior in and around the home. We also worked on bother Charlie and Reptar's leash manners and leash reactivity.

My family and I rescued our pup Rocco in January 2023. Rocco was nippy with my son and I mostly, barked most of the time, struggled to obey basic commands like stay, and he was tough on the leash when small children, other dogs, or bikes would go by our house. Our first visit was informative and opened our eyes to different ways to handle our Rocco without food/treats or those prong collars. Roccos training has all been verbal and what a difference Barbara has made!! Rocco has responded wonderfully and we are now able to walk outside peacefully while people/dogs/bikes go by, he waits for us to tell him its ok to come out of his crate, knows to stay when exiting a door or when the front door bell rings . Rocco has also stopped nipping. What difference 3 sessions as made. I highly recommend Barbara. She is a pleasure to have had in our home and Rocco also really enjoyed her being here always bringing her his toys lol Barbara and Bark Busters training is top notch and would be the only training I would recommend. Thank you Barbara, for all you have helped us with Permalink

Trainer note from Barbara : It was such a pleasure working with you and your family. Rocco was so eager to learn and to understand how to make you happy and the bonds that all of you are building with him make your home a much happier place for all of you. He was eager to please you right from the start. He just wasn't sure how to do it until you learned how to communicate with him. Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to convey them. Best regards, Barbara
