We so appreciate Andrea and her skilled and gentle approach to training both our pup and us! In one session she gave us a foundation to start communicating with Lemme and redirecting her behavior. We are both relieved and excited have Andrea guide us. In one session we were equipped with the tools to address possessiveness, impulse control and pack dominance. This is the best investment we could have ever made in our little pack. Thank you!!
Andrea has been great with Penny Lane, and the results were instant! Andrea's love for dogs is apparent, and she is also clear with her directions and an excellent listener. We're incredibly fortunate that Andrea is our trainer.
Andrea has been amazing in helping develop our relationship with our rescue, Ozzie. We were at our wits end when we discovered Bark Busters. Andrea has been attentive, supportive, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable. We are now able to enjoy our time with our puppy without frustration and stress.
Andrea has helped us change our relationship with our dogs in the best way possible. We actually understand why they react to things now and how to correct it! We have one dog who can be aggressive with strangers coming into the home. Andrea helped us work with him to understand what we need to do to make him comfortable and continue to associate strangers with good things. We can now bring people into our home with less worry that he will be aggressive towards them. Our other dog is a dachshund and loves the sound of his own voice, constantly barking at people walking by the fence, the mail person, any deliveries, etc. Now we are able to control the barking and he looks at us to see how he should react. We also worked on walking on the leash as he could be reactive when walking by other people and dogs. After only a couple sessions he is walking on the leash so much calmer and happier and I have the techniques to help calm him when other distractions walk by. Andrea has truly been a lifesaver and is so responsive, we look forward to every session with her!
Andrea was amazing with our dog Hudson! After a year of aggression towards humans and dogs, Hudson showed immediate results from our first session with Andrea. She did a fantastic job of communicating with us as to why Hudson was reacting the way he was. Once we learned how to respond and act around him it was a complete game changer! Andrea was also extremely professional and courteous in response to COVID-19 social distancing, we felt very comfortable having her in our home.
Andrea is wonderful!
She was enthusiastic about meeting and training Rosie. I learned a lot from her on our first appointment, and am excited to watch the progression with her help! I highly recommend her!
Andrea is amazing with our new rescue, Cash! She helped us see things from Cash's point of view which showed us how to be better "pack leaders" for him. After just one visit, our pup is already able to spend time alone without constant whining or destructive behavior (he has bad separation anxiety), is no longer pulling on the leash during walks, and seems much more "at home" with us now. Andrea was truly the voice of our dog in the training sessions and we contribute our happy, calm pup to her dedication and training style. If you want a trainer who is knowledgeable, thorough, dedicated, and dog-centered, Andrea is your trainer! Bark Busters was the perfect experience to help our good boy become even better and we are so excited to continue working with Andrea in the future!
Andrea was amazing and had a great attitude throughout. She came over to help us with door training and leash obedience. We saw almost immediate results with our dog, and were fortunate enough to have a number of outside stimuli to test the training right off the bat. Two random strangers came to the door during our session, and we were able to put the techniques she showed us to work in real time, with great results. We also found a cat and several children on scooters while practice leash training, and Ruby was unfazed. Can't recommend their services highly enough, thanks Andrea!
Before Andrea started training me and my big ol pup, Norman (136 lb, 1 year old, English Mastiff) I was unsure of how to fix his behavioral issues. Turns out the ways I thought were helpful were probably just making his behavior worse and I was confusing him even more. Now with the help of Bark Busters training philosophy and Andreas patience and support, I can walk Norman around the neighborhood without him rushing/lunging at every person or dog in site! She taught me to be confident and guide Norman to correct/polite behavior. Walks are finally enjoyable and I'm not getting pulled across the street anymore or having my shoulder pulled like crazy. The trust Norman has in me is an awesome feeling and it just grows our bond more and more. The little tips and tools Andrea gives can and will make huge differences in your pups behavior. Plus she is a fun, loving, awesome lady who cares a ton about animals which makes working with her fun and rewarding. Thanks Andrea! You're a life saver!
