I adopted a 4 year old German Shepherd Lab back in 2007 and couldn't believe my luck as "Sadie" was turning out to be the perfect dog: Well behaved, very obedient and incredibly sweet and gentle. Then I took her to the dog park...Turns out she had a serious aggression problem toward other dogs and it became more evident why she was at the pound. As returning her to the pound was not an option for me, I called Bark Busters and Sadie and I began working with Gerard Raneri. Together, we were able to apply techniques to curb her behavior and creatively manage the loop holes as they became more evident. For example, to remove all risk and to calm my own developing anxieties about ending up on Judge Judy, we added an extra Halti leash to the heavy duty Bark Busters leash and then topped it off with a muzzle. That way, throughout the process, if something didn't go well, everyone remained safe. As I sit typing this, Sadie is politely sharing a rawhide bone with my boyfriend's black lab on the living room floor. The beauty of getting the lifetime package is that new behaviors and situations can emerge (such as starting a dating relationship and wondering if I get rid of the guy or the dog if the pooches can't get along...) Thanks to Gerard's help, we averted the crisis and so far, coexisting happily ever after. Many thanks to Gerard and the Bark Busters program! Permalink

WE HAVE HAD AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH BARK BUSTERS!! We never thought that the training would be so effective - and so quick! Sadie responded almost immediately to the training. I have recommended Bark Busters to anyone I know with a dog! Thank you!! Permalink

Thanks Meg! Thanks for having patience with the owner :-) You're doing a great job. I think it is I, and not the animals, that needs the practice now! Permalink

The training techniques were very easy to follow and I witnessed noticeable results by the end of the session. Sophie was much calmer at the end of the session. I liked the "hands off" approach she used. I found the training to be very interesting and enjoyable. We thought Sophie was hopeless, but we saw improvements! Permalink

Keith started working with my newest dog about 3 months ago..My dog came to us after being abonanded & only about 4 months old. Keith was able to give me wonderful training methods to capture a "hyper" dogs attention. He was and still is so supportive and very patient in working with my dog and with me. He is always available to give advice if I should call him on a whim. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through the last few months if not for his training help. I highly recommend Keith...A+++ trianer...Thanks Keith! Permalink

Barney was responding better to verbal commands and praise. I was pleased that it was praise training without treats. I learned simple and effective training tools. Definitely would recommend Bark Busters and Sonja! Permalink
