We have had only two training sessions with Bark BusterÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Jack Knudsen thus far, but the behavior changes in our 10 month old lab, Finn, have been remarkable. Before choosing Bark Busters, we researched trainers exhaustively. What stood out most about Jack was the number of reviews that claimed people had noticed a significant difference in their dogÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s behavior after just one session. Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too, and frankly, were in awe that after our first session Jack had our dog understanding his place in our family Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½packÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½. Finn was no longer racing us out the door; jumping on us, the furniture or counters; nipping at our coattails; pulling at the leash; barking for no reason; and so on.
When Jack came back the second time, it was more of a Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½refresherÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ on those things we had noticed needed a bit more attention/work since the first visitÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½namely, outdoor leash workÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½but we were still impressed by the amount of new training techniques and commands Finn had retained from the beginning. Now, after two visits Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and just recently hosting a dozen family members for the holiday Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ we can say with certainty that JackÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s training methods work. With lots of tempting foods and an overwhelming number of people to play with during the holiday, our dog was so obedient that even those who didnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t know we had begun training remarked how well he was behaving.
After spending time with Jack during the sessions, one thing we particularly like is that he does not just tell you what to do, he shows you and watches as you try the various training techniques, and then offers useful feedback that can be implemented as you practice training on your own time, outside of his onsite visits. Bark Busters prides itself on a method of training that resembles how dogs instinctively interact in nature. Rather than using force, Jack shows the owners how to use body language and voice control to communicate with your dog in a way that he/she understands. Jack has done an excellent job training not only Finn, but our family as well, and while we are already more than satisfied with the training, we are confident we will continue to see even more improvements in our dogÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s behavior as time progresses.
