Michelle from Bark Busters really changed our lives yesterday!! We were feeling lost and out of control with our sweet almost 4 month old deaf puppy Ghost, he was definitely running the show and we were overwhelmed by how much our lives had been taken over by this adorable little terror! We were especially overwhelmed once we learned that he was deaf, and realized we couldn't use our voice to train him. We didn't know how to manage the "puppy crazies" when he would become a lunatic, do laps around the house, chew everything he wasn't supposed to, and bite any body part he could find of ours (and those puppy teeth are super sharp)! Yelling at him and saying "NO!" was doing nothing as he couldn't hear us haha We also felt lost in terms of how to leash and house train him. We received him from foster care just 3 weeks ago and he was wee-wee pad trained but he's a clumsy puppy so we've been constantly cleaning up pee and poop spillage when he misses the wee-wee pads since he got here, and we desperately wanted to get him to only go outside! Michelle changed all of this in the matter of a few hours, and gave us guidance and a concrete plan for how to move forward. She taught us how to hold ourselves and how to train him to not do these puppy crazy behaviors like biting, jumping and chewing everything in sight! She was patient and made sure we understood how dogs communicate so that we could truly understand the world from Ghost's eyes, especially considering that his eyes were the main way we were going to communicate with our deaf puppy. She explained everything so that it made sense to us, and practiced with us until we felt we could practice with Ghost. She addressed all of our concerns and I feel full of hope and confidence now that we will have a different puppy soon! In fact, he already was truly a different puppy after just the initial session- the dynamics changed thanks to Michelle and we became the leaders, rather than Ghost calling all the shots and making the decisions! Last night he slept THROUGH THE NIGHT, which is a miracle after 3 weeks of waking up between 2-4am to take him to the bathroom because HE asked us to!! Not anymore, we're in charge and that allows Ghost to have rules, structure and respect for us as his parents and feel safer in this world. Michelle trained us to be good parents and leaders for Ghost and we are eternally grateful and can't wait to keep working with Michelle! The initial training session was truly so thorough I've already recommended Bark Buster services to a few friends with puppies! Permalink

Trainer note from Michelle : Hi Jessyka, Thank you so much for your review! Working with every dog is rewarding, but working with a deaf dog is extra special. Watching as Ghost started to understand what you wanted from him and how he wanted to please you was simply magical! Thank you for your referrals to friends and keep me posted! I'm always here to help! ~Michelle PS I LOVE this pic of him! He is so adorable!

Randy and Kayla were absolutely amazing...gentle, kind and very informative! I highly recommend them over any other dog trainers. I’ve used other trainers with my past dogs and the results were not as successful as Randy and Kayla!! I give them 10 stars!!! Permalink

We have an adopted Boxer who was in need of training. He was highly excitable and dominant even towards us. Theresa cam in and in a few hours had him behaving much better. Much of the training centered around us too. We learned a great deal about tone, posture, redundancy and daily exercise. The training has helped tremendously! Permalink

Jeri worked with us for just a few hours and we could already tell a difference with our dog, Barkley, who has extreme separation anxiety. I was very impressed with her techniques and training plan moving forward. Permalink

Our 2 year old Yorkie Shih Tzu mix was terrible with strangers coming into the home and had bitten before. Anytime we needed a plumber, or a friend would come over that the dog never met the anxiety we had was terrible, we were afraid of what the dog would do. We found bark busters and spoke with Keith who was confident he could help. We set the appointment and we were hopeful but wondered how this could work. Long story short... after 2 HOURS I don’t know where my dog went and who this well behaved guy is. I know we need to continue the training at home to maximize results, which we will but the results truly are that very first day and it is one of the most incredible things We have ever seen, not sure if we will ever get over how great of this is. Keith is a great guy, very even tempered, very informative and patient. If you think all hope is lost for your dog and you’ve tried everything... don’t give up, CALL KEITH NOW, JUST BELIEVE IN IT AND I PROMISE IT WILL WORK! Permalink
