Alison was a joy to work with from beginning to end. We had a very sensitive issue where our new rescue mastiff mix was aggressive towards our next door neighbors docile dogs. Alison shared with us techniques on how to work with Greta and then engaged the neighbor and their two dogs so we were all working together to resolve the issue. We learned so much about "bully" breeds and are better dog owners for having worked with Alison. She brought a professionalism and calm to a situation that could have generated into something more toxic. We also learned other techniques for keeping our household calmer with our other two dogs. It was worth every penny. Permalink

The opening presentation/discussion was very helpful! The training methods appear to be effective. We like the limited use of treats and the positive verbal reinforcement. We absolutely enjoyed the training experience. Joanne is personable and effective. We would definitely recommend Bark Busters. Permalink

My Dogs were like new dogs! I look forward to my sessions with Debbie. I learn so much every time. The changes in my dogs in such a short time are amazing. With three large dogs my house is out of control! With Debbie's help there is so much less chaos! Permalink

Ken took a long time with us and answered all of our questions. Ella's such a timid dog and we definitely did see a difference after the second training session. We are already recommending Bark Busters to our neighbors. Permalink

Vickie and Brad W Spring Grove, Illinois | October 07 2014
I highly recommend Brad Howe. He is dedicated, passionate, and brings with him a high-quality, no-nonsense approach that is easy to apply the techniques with a huge positive outcome that leaves you grateful, happy, and stress free. Our black lab is riddled with anxiety separation and wildly barks, and frantically runs from window to window when the door bell rings. Brad came to our rescue, applied Barks techniques, and with our love and consistency our dog, Kozmo, now responds well to Bark Busters methods reducing our stress levels. Thank you, Brad!!! Permalink

Barb L Andover, Minnesota | October 07 2014
Resolved the biggest issue I had with Chevy which was aggression when someone came to visit. He bit one person so I knew I had to work with a trainer. He now knows his boundaries and his space. Barking was an issue also which is better when I catch him right away. He now knows I am the Alpha person and he respects that. Walking was also an issue but am using the halter and he is easier to walk. He DOES NOT LIKE the halte but resigns to my using it. Permalink

My dog, a Bernese Mountain Dog named Fletcher, responded in a way I never would have believed if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes! Bark Busters will change our lives. Permalink

Rebecca H Orange, California | October 07 2014
Absolutely one of the best experiences with dog training, hands down. I'd tried so many things before I stumbled on Bark Busters and was about ready to give up hope. My dog was rambunctious, too much energy for me to handle properly, and he would only listen half the time. He had small prey and leash aggression, and I almost had to get rid of him. When I begged for Frank's assistance he worked fast to put my mind at ease, and with the techniques he gave me I saw immediate results. The price for a LIFETIME of service is more than fair, it's the best investment you'll ever make. The training is humane, no shock collars or pinch collars necessary. He explained things and made them easier and because of this, my dog is well behaved, calmer, and we have a stronger bond than ever. Needless to say, as far as my dog and I are concerned, Frank saved both our lives. Dog training is a constant need and maintenance is key. It should be priceless, the relationship that you can develop with your animal. But let me tell you, the thing you really need to understand is how much bang you get for your buck. I can call Frank up at any time and he gets back to me same day. All for one low price. If you're having aggression problems, behavior adjustment, you need help getting your dog used to cats--A to Z Frank at Bark Busters is the man to call! Permalink

I am so very pleased with the results of our 6 month contract, not only did we get fantastic techniques that were insightful and easy to follow, but when I would ask our trainers to repeat the training instructions again so that I could really understand them, John and Lexie were patient and took extra time to make sure I understood! My dog, Hans has had a 100% complete turn around from an aggressive dog towards other dogs to a dog who has a "room mate" and a new buddy! I have recommended John and Lexie to several of my friends who are struggling with their dogs!!! Thanks John and Lexie for all your knowledge and willing to train us as parents to have a dog who follows commands and is NOT aggressive to his new roommate! Permalink
