Detroit Northern Suburbs Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Evan is so great to work with and truly helped us with our pup. His patience and compassion helped greatly with our dog and we are truly grateful we found him and his training! We would recommend him to anyone having troubles with their furbaby’s!
Evan is a great help with our new rescue Dusty. There is a huge difference after our first session. Evan gave us easy and effective tools to correct unwanted behaviors. Everything is much better and we're looking forward to our next visit. The in home training is great.
Evan was outstanding with our new lab pup Ruger. Evan was a wealth of knowledge for us on how to handle such an active breed. As new dog owners, we were so thankful for Evans help and his amazing work with Ruger. Ruger is has become such a well behaved puppy and continuing to progress everyday. Evan was amazing to work with and we continue to recommend him to all of our friends and family!
Our two goldens Sadie and Beau had some serious jealousy issues when the younger one came home as a puppy. It got so bad that we couldn't leave them alone without supervision or they would get into constant fights and non-stop barking. After just one lesson with Evan, the difference is already amazing! He gave us some very valuable tools and ways to help calm down our pups for a more peaceful home life. I couldn't be more happy with bark busters training and the help Evan has been providing, thanks again Evan!!
This year we added a second dog to our family and training a puppy and having a mature dog was tough. Evan to the rescue, he came in and helped us teach our dogs manners. Door bashing, sitting on furniture (without an invite), dishwasher behavior were our challenges. Evan did a great job helping us understand what was happening and how to correct it so we could build better and happier dog (& human) habits. Rory & Gigi responded very well and it was so simple! We love Dog Busters...Evan helped teach us how to understand our dogs and be able to get the best out of them. Thanks Evan!
Post COVID/being home we'd been having issues managing boundaries like staying out of the kitchen while preparing food, begging for food at the table, and owning the door for entry and exit from our home. In addition to being super cute - our mini-dachshund is pretty tenacious. Evan gave us great tools and an understanding of how to "talk" to dogs. Gunnar understood almost immediately and with consistency and work we've seen miraculous improvement. Evan helped to address these bad habits and behaviors that to be honest we humans had created. It's a much happier home with a well-mannered dog.
We were at the point where we were ready to find a new home for Gus ... he was just way more than we could handle and we didn't know where to begin. Evan showed up for the first time and my wife and I were trying to hold tears back when we saw how quickly Gus' behavior could change for the better. Not only that, the training helped us with our other dogs and already, we're a MUCH happier home. Evan was calm, clear, and very confident. We're looking forward to continuing the training to make this an incredibly happy dog home!
My brother used Bark Busters and had Evan train his dogs that were aggressive and he said it went amazing so I gave them a call. My dog Mona had a serious case of separation anxiety and I needed it fixed. Evan came and helped me solve the problem. He first explained why the separation anxiety was occurring and then gave me the knowledge and tools to work towards solving the problem. It has been two weeks and Mona is already doing better than she was before and she is also just all around so much better behaved! I am so glad I called Bark Busters!!!
My dogs Stanley and Josie had some serious issues. They were getting in fights, Stanley was marking in the house, both of them were constantly barking at people in the window, and if guests came in the house they would jump all over them. After the first visit with Evan the dynamic in the house completely changed. It’s like we had a new set of dogs. He gave the tools I needed to be the leader and explained everything in a way I understood. I was extremely impressed with Evan’s knowledge and ability to explain things in a way I understood easily. I feel so lucky to have found Bark Busters.

Evan did an amazing job! I have a larger breed dog who has always been on the more aggressive side. Bruno is now much easier to control while on walks and after one lesson with Evan he knows who the boss is and obeys even around other dogs. He went above and beyond explaining things to us and was quick to respond. I’ve never been happier with a trainer and it was worth every dollar!!! I would recommend to anybody who’s on the edge!
Evan came around to help my dog Bella as she would constantly jump/bark at new people and would never listen to simple commands. After a few weeks with Bark Busters she was a completely different dog! Not only did he help Bella behave better, he also taught me different ways to teach my dog in my own time.
Words can’t express the gratitude I have for the amount of progress made with my fur baby. Evan has been a great resource & very patient throughout the whole process. I can’t believe I waited as long as I did before finally making the decision to train with Bark Busters!! Thank you Evan!
Hiring Evan to tame my two ferocious beasts was the best investment I have made. Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating on the ferocious part, but they would fight each other for my attention and once even drew blood. I also couldn't walk them both on leash at the same time, and in the morning, I barely have enough time to walk one of them. Evan taught me how to be a better pack leader soo that I could be better prepared and more in control. The change in my dogs was like night and day. I have been consistent with implementing the exercises he taught me and we have been doing GREAT. Thanks Evan!
Wallace was a pandemic puppy, meaning he was used to me being at home. When I started going back to work 3 days/week, his bad behaviors magnified. Thank goodness for Evan! Not only did he help Wallace with his separation anxiety, but walks used to be a nightmare because of the pulling. After Evan came to my house and gave me the skill set to be a better pup leader, our walks are amazing! Wallace doesn't pull, he listens to my commands and he doesn't bark at other dogs or people. Thank you so much for all your help!
I am so impressed with the results of Evan's training! He really cares about his clients and the results of his training. I have an aggressive dog who wouldn't stop jumping all over people and would bolt out the door the minute it was opened. As soon as he would see other dogs, he would growl, but never harm them. Before this escalated, I called Evan. What I like about his training is that it's a natural canine communication system. Evan taught me how to lead Charlie so that he no longer felt he had to protect me. I would highly recommend Evan.
If not for Evan, we would have had to take our dog to the shelter. We live in an apartment and the neighbors were complaining about Berkeley's incessant barking while we were at work. Additionally, our complex has a dog park, and Berkeley was very reactive to the other dogs. I didn't think it was possible, but I saw a major difference in my dog in the first lesson. Evan gave me the tools to be a better owner so my dog would love and respect me. Don't wait and put up with annoying behaviors. Call Evan!
