After the first lesson, I was able to put a stop to nighttime barking that prevented me from sleeping, and the correction took me less than 2 minutes. The behavior has not returned. If anyone had told me that was possible, I would not have believed it. Correcting the pulling when her favorite dog friend is near is an ongoing process, but that, too, is improving. The insights into canine behavior and my ability to take charge of her have, I believe, helped enormously. Mark has been easy to work with, responsive to questions and has followed up each session with an email reinforcing the lesson. I was literally on the verge of tears a number of times prior to the training where I felt that I would never have control of the situation. I have recommended Bark Busters to several people already. I am confident that should I have additional problems in the future that Mark will be able to help me with them in as efficient a manner. This is truly an amazing program and I think my puppy seems calmer and happier for it. Permalink

The presentation before hand on the training was very informative and helped us to understand Huey better. It was good to know that there is no physical punishment or coercion during the training. Ken was very descriptive and easy to understand. We have seen amazing changes in Huey! Permalink

We were thoroughly interested. Michelle took her time and was very keen to teach us and Ginger! The few hours Michelle was here was the best time we've had with Ginger since we brought her home! Michelle was very patient and Bark Busters is the way to go. Permalink

Michael and the Bark Buster methodology are amazing. We had watched shows, bought books, and read copious amounts online about training our puppy; none of it worked. Then came Michael, and we accomplished so much -- even in just the first appointment. We are understanding our pup and training him with positive results. The Bark Buster philosophy is like nothing else we've seen out there, and definitely worth it. So if you're at your wits end with your pet (as we were!), get serious about training and get the help of Bark Busters! Permalink

Debra Boswell came by and she did a great job. I learned a lot about my dog and why he acts the way he does and how to correct it. I am noticing changes already, and exactly like she described. We have done the training now for two days, and it is going well. I emailed her tonight with a question, and she got right back to me. I had one dog trainer before, and I was not satisfied. I have had a great experience with Debra and Bark Busters so far. - Heidi Kroner Permalink

I call Lee the Dog Whisperer of Northern Virginia. Lee began visiting my home where I live with my two 70 pound labrador retrievers. After the first session there were great results in both of my dog's behavior. My elderly mother is visiting very soon and my dogs rush up and down the steps like race horses. I feared for my mother's safety. After one session with Lee I have this behavior under control as well as understanding why the behavior was occurring. Lee has taught me that my approach and response to the dogs is just as important as the dog's response. Lee provides training that helps you understand "why" something is being done and once I learned this I have been able to transfer this base of knowledge to many other situations that I have encountered with my dogs. I have now been working with Lee for 1 month and I have two well behaved loving labs. I highly recommend Lee and Bark Busters. The training is done in your home and you work on exactly the issues you are having with your dog. I have been a dog owner for 20 years and have participated in the "typical group" training sessions. Those results were not even close to what Lee at Bark Busters as provided me. Thank you Lee for sharing your wisdom and providing wonderful follow up support. Permalink
