We contacted Bark Busters for training help with our 1 year old Australian Cattle Dog Mix, Lola. Kurt Schroeder was our trainer and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!
Lola is a sweet dog and already knew basic commands: sit, stay, lay down, and was housebroken, all before we contacted BarkBusters. Our family recently had our first human baby, and we wanted to make sure Lola would behave appropriately around the baby. Lola always has had issues with jumping up on visitors and getting VERY hyper. We were afraid she would accidentally jump on the new baby or harm her. We were skeptical at first, but were pleasantly surprised with how well the training worked. Kurt explained to us how important training Lola on a leash is and demonstrated exactly how to walk Lola. He also gave us techniques on what to do when people come over.
The reason why the training worked so well was because Kurt SHOWED us what to do in our own home. Within two weeks of practicing daily, Lola became a different dog. She is much more calm and is WONDERFUL with our baby. This training was much more beneficial than putting the dog in a group training session.
Kurt was very professional, showed up on time (if not early), and is still in contact with us to make sure Lola is still cooperating with us. We highly recommend this training!
