PHENOMENAL, YET SO SIMPLE! I have a beautiful purebred Yorkie, so cute yet so stubborn, and barked a lot. I love my dog, but I would sometimes want to leave home to get away from her barking, begging, pacing, did I say begging? :) I even thought about giving her away. The breeder said that they were just like that, but Lisa showed me how to break her bad habits in two hours. She is now, after one day, obedient! Amazing! My therapist was fabulous, easy going, pleasant, knowledgeable. Permalink

I AM VERY GLAD WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED THIS SYSTEM! Great results for a very hyper puppy! John was very interesting and presented everything well. Permalink

My primary goal was to be able to walk by other dogs quietly, without our dog going into attack mode. With the skills we learned from Mark Lieberman, we were able to accomplish this. Permalink

We found the training so much easier in a home setting verses in a group setting. Permalink

This is the 3rd german shepard that I have owned and by far the hardest to train and with Mikes help and guidence by the 3 lesson he is a much more controled dog. I can now take him for walks without worring about him going after someone or another animal. It feel like I have a total different dog from 4 weeks ago. Permalink

I had Linda in my home for about 3 hours during my initial training session with my 4 year old Lab to deal with a severe case of separation anxiety. I was really at a breaking point with him. If we didn't get this resolved, I may have had to give him away. After just those 3 hours with Linda it is like a different dog. He will happily go into his crate and lay down with not even a whimper. He walks on a leash like he is supposed to and really is a almost perfect dog after just that one visit. I would highly recommend Linda Conrad and BarkBusters to anyone. Thanks Linda for "rescuing" Lucky! Permalink

After raising one Maltese completely unsuccessfully, I wasn't taking any chances with my second one. I called Bark Busters a week after bringing Kira home. Thanks to Sarah, I now have the perfect dog! Sarah taught "us" every aspect of training including basic commands, housebreaking, walking on a leash, not running out my from door, everything!!!! She was always available by email with immediate situations that came up, and all the house calls we needed for the hands on lessons. I cannot thank her enough! Permalink

I observed noticeable results. Sadie responded in a quieter mode. I was very pleased with the natural training techniques. If you have problem dogs and need training, I recommend Bark Busters. Permalink

David Wiley is wonderful!!! I am not afraid of Gerald, but afraid of what Gerald may do to someone else when he gets into his "scary zone." David has helped me gain control and understand what I need to do. Learning doggie behavior is great. This is a must for all dog owners!!! Permalink

Sara C Charlotte, North Carolina | August 30 2014
It helped us that Karen explained exactly why the training techniques worked. I've have NEVER had such a quick response from a dog with any other training technique. I'm so much more comfortable training this way because if feels like I am bonding with my dog while we are training! Bark Busters methods are much more effective than other training methods out there like special collars or treats. Other trainers have made me feel inadequate as a dog owner or ever shamed me! Thank you for building me up and helping me learn that I've just been speaking the wrong language! Permalink

Trainer note from Karen : Sara had a very tough case on her hands with her recently rescued dog. This dog had been found wandering the streets of Charlotte and was in pretty rough shape but he is a survivor! Sara brought him to good health. The rib came in convincing Haymitch that he not only had a nurse, but had a boss! This dog gave Sara respect signs immediately! Impressive! To keep the relationship in proper perspective, however, she is going to have to be consistent, consistent, consistent ... and not confuse Haymitch with training techniques that she has learned from other training programs! Great job!
