It was amazing to see Annabelle obey so quickly. I am against cruel treatments used by Caesar Milan. Bark Busters is firm, fair and not cruel. Results are immediate. Permalink

With Bark Busters, we found a way to effectively communicate a correction. Our dog was able to walk along beside us without pulling or walking ahead. He also improved on the "stay" command. Karen explained how important it is for us to stay consistent Permalink

My dog trainer John was excellent and very patient. I thought the training was very interesting and my dogs enjoyed it as well. John Sullivan explained everything in detail and was very helpful in helping me understand my dogs better. The first day my dogs were so much better. John loves what he does and it shows. I am very happy with him and so are my dogs. Thank you! Permalink

Vicky explained the training techniques very basic but thoroughly. Vicky's training was apparent immediately. It was amazing! Vicky's natural training was exactly what we wanted--gentle yet firm. The hours flew by. Vicky kept the training interesting. We would recommend Bark Busters to friends and neighbors that have different problems with their dogs as well. Our own training of our dogs either didn't work or would take years to sink in. Permalink

Wonderful - such common sense techniques but done in such a practical way. Amy is so comforting and I feel like we have a plan to help Charlie feel safe. Amy made me feel like my sweet dog is going to learn these ways to communicate and we will both be better. Permalink

I've had 2 dogs go through classes with Cheryl. Jack just finished the CGC and Dexter went through the puppy star class. Before the class jack would not listen to anything I said. It was like he knew what to do but didn't care. He is a completely different dog. My dad just had back surgery and this morning I had them over at his house. My mom asked me to help change his bandage in the bedroom and we didn't want the dogs in there. I had them sit and stay in the living room. I opened the door expecting them to have forgotten to stay and be waiting at the door. They hasn't moved! It was about 10 minutes! Jack is 9 months and Dexter is a year and a half so they're still kind of puppies. It's amazing. Thanks so much! You're the best!Oh, and also important- the classes are really fun! Permalink

I got Gus at 3 months old, and I could tell from the second I saw him something was just not right. I could tell by the way he acted towards me he had not been socialized. for the first two days, he would just go in circles, after about the third day he stopped growling at me and my husband. As he started to get older he was very scared of new things and people, to the point I was afraid to take him anywhere. I had talked to Cheryl Kubista with Bark Busters Toledo and asked her o stop by and take a look at him to see if she could help. as soon as I brought him out to see her he just stood behind me. Cheryl worked with him for about an hour, even though he was growling and snapping. She worked with him to get him to understand that people weren't bad and by the end of that hour he was sitting in her lap relaxed. She never used anything physical. It was her body language and voice tones that got him to relax. I enrolled him in the Bark Busters STAR puppy class as soon as he hit 5 months old. And now, at almost a year, he has completed his Canine Good Citizen class. I was afraid to take him anywhere before his training, and being a Rottweiler I had to be careful. If you would meet him now you would never know he ever had any problems. He goes to nursing homes, parades and pretty much anywhere I go. I have his sister from a different litter and she was worse than he was. I couldn't get her out of her cage without her charging front teeth bared. She also has completed the STAR puppy class and is a totally different dog. She went from being a scared, aggressive puppy to a happy goofy girl. I cannot thank Cheryl and Bark Busters enough for changing the outcome f the lives of my dogs. they would not be able to enjoy the events we do without her help. I truly feel I would have had very aggressive Rottweilers had Cheryl not worked thru with me and the issues that they had. Permalink

Trainer note from Cheryl : Missy worked very hard with both dogs and followed everything that I told her to do. Gus and Greta are a pleasure to be around now and are great dogs.
