My husband and I enjoyed meeting Patrick and we found both the dog psychology and hands-on training really understandable and easy to follow. Implementing the instructions is working well and our dogs are really getting it! We're very excited!!!
I highly recommend Patrick with Bark Busters above all the other trainers out there!! (and my black lab Nugget and I have worked with a TON of them!)
I was amazed by how calm, patient, understanding & effective his methods were. In a word - SIMPLE.
After my first hour lesson with Patrick I had more CONFIDENCE (and hope that things could change) than I ever dared dream!
Every time Patrick shows us a new training exercise, he explains why it works, watches us try it out, and provides pointers. He then sends us home with a "homework handout" to help remember what to do and why. . . It literally couldn't be any easier.

But let's be real - the only thing that matters are RESULTS and that's exactly what we've been getting!

I'm so relieved we finally found a great dog trainer... I only wish we had found Patrick and Bark Busters sooner!!
Patrick is an awesome trainer for you. He will teach you to speak "Dog" and become the "Leader" which in turns makes for a much happier and relaxed household. We did not "click" with the first dog training company we tried. So I tried doing youtube university which failed for me as well. No failure yesterday. In less than 3 hours, my dog was more relaxed and in the green zone than ever before.
Patrick was great! He explained the philosophy and methods then worked hands on with me and my dog. The first lesson was very successful! I love no remotes or treats needed!
I barely have words to describe how amazing Patrick was. The strategies were both intuitive and effective in ways I wasn’t expecting. In just days the overwhelming majority of my fear was gone. My dog(Gunner) is a rescue and a really strong pitbull mix. As a disabled person, walking a dog that leash tugs is very worrying. Patrick had it fixed in minutes and gave me the strategies to work on it going forward. I’ve taken Gunner on walks over a mile long, and run into multiple triggers without any incident since our visit. And it’s only been a week. The security in seeing the changes within my dog an his actions has been so uplifting in knowing that this will work for the long term. Just seeing his anxiety drop as it’s easier for me to communicate with him has been great to see. I was worried how effective it would be, both for me and for Gunner. Understanding that the real goal is communicating on his level was the answer to getting my message through was a game changer. I really can’t say enough good about Patrick and Bark Busters.
We have a blue nose, pitbull, named Blue Bear. We were training him ourselves off of videos on YouTube. At six months old, I started looking for a trainer. It took me four months before I finally just told myself I had to pull the trigger and called Bark Busters and boy am I glad I got it right the first time. After just a couple of hours of training us, and reinforcing it with Blue Bear we had an entirely different dog that was calm, happy, and responsive to us. I did not believe that it would happen that fast. It was a joy to work with Patrick. He’s very dedicated to dogs and their parents. He explained everything to us, and answered all of our questions, and worked with us in our own home. It was a very seamless transition to a very well behaved loving dog when explaining why we needed to do the things we did. It all came together and made so much sense. I’m a retired nurse, and I do love to work with rationales behind what you do. My husband is very impressed which is hard to do. My daughter came over this morning and was amazed at how well behaved Blue Bear was. Looking forward to. Continued success with our beloved Blue Bear. Thank you Patrick, and Bark Busters.
Patrick, we wish we had found you months ago! We have a completely different dog as he is so calm and only after two days. The barking is almost gone, he no longer pulls on a leash and last night he slept all night in his playpen, without a whimper, for the first time. So we woke up with no accidents on the floor. It is truly amazing what we can be taught in our 70’s. Thank you a million times over.
Patrick has changed my life for the better in 2 short hours! My 3-month-old golden doodle, Maggie is so much more responsive on day 1 and I am sure it will continue as we do more. After one lesson she has been in and out of her crate twice today for an hour at a time with no crying and barking!
We are so excited to have received training from Patrick at Bark Busters. Our overall goal was to better communicate with our dogs, and to make them more comfortable with each other. (We added a new puppy, Arlo, to our pack, and he thought he was the alpha. He also had terrible separation anxiety from my husband which made it difficult putting him in his crate without whining, yipping, or barking, or walking him since he was pulling me so much).

Not only did Patrick help us better communicate with our pups, but he helped us lay a solid foundation for communicating our expectations with them. It has been a night and day difference! By “speaking dog”, we’ve established WE are the leaders of our pack. Our youngest pup seems to have less separation anxiety from my husband, which makes walking much easier and crate training a dream. He also seems to respond more reliably to our commands.

Even with our older pup, Riley - family members have commended her on not jumping and being much calmer. She has responded so well to this training.

Riley and Arlo both seem to be more comfortable with each other as well, making sure to take lead from us.

All of our problems are not fixed, but it is comforting to know what consistency of this training has brought us in so little time. We are excited to continue on this journey so that our dogs can be happier, and we can live happier lives with them.

Thank you Patrick/Bark Busters!
Surprised how quickly the dog responded to what he said to do. I am sure if I follow what I learned today a lot of the problems will be taken care of.
Patrick was awesome to work with. Easy to understand. Wonderful teacher. After less than 3 hours with our initial training session, our dog is spending lots of time in the green zone. He has really helped us understand our dog much better and speak her language.
We so enjoyed the time you were here helping us understand our puppy and what we should and should not be doing right now. We appreciate all the time and effort you put into this visit.. Thanks again, for EVERYTHING! You get a "10" from us:)
I am so thankful for Patrick @Barkbusters!! He is amazing!! From the moment I called to my actual training session with Patrick was 5 stars!! So knowledgeable, honest, compassionate and incredible communication!! Patrick was wonderful to work with!! I learned so much the first session and so did my 3 golden doodles ROMEO, LEO and TEDDY!!! Results in one session is amazing!! Patrick taught me how to communicate with my boys!!! If you want the program and lessons to work you need to be committed and consistent! I am already seeing results and much happier!!! My life is back!! I cannot recommend BARKBUSTERSand PATRICK enough!! You will NOT be disappointed if you go with this program. It is not cheap but worth every penny!! Thank you Patrick and look forward to working with you more!!!! Danielle Lipani
This training is amazing!
We had a fantastic first session with Patrick! Our puppy Luna had no boundaries and was getting bigger faster than we could figure out how to train her! Who knew we just needed to speak dog?! Patrick did! Our 4 year old Border Collie also participated in the session and we were able to leverage his natural tendencies and Patrick's dog speaking methods to teach him to follow our lead! I think we received more training than the pups and we were left feeling much more prepared to be the leaders of the pack and have well mannered pups. I definitely haven't mastered everything yet, but I know Patrick is just a phone call away!
Pat came in and trained us on how to train our dogs in less than an hour. It’s like we have new well behaved dogs! We have 2 dogs, a 1 year old and 6 year old. My only regret is not calling Pat 6 years ago!
Our 18 mo Cocker Spaniel Molly, a leash tugger, puller barker & lunger at anything or anyone we saw when attempting to take her for a walk. We tried all the usual trainings - puppy kindergarten and basic obedience - she passed but result was short lived. Today was her training session with Patrick. She is NOT the same dog this afternoon....she is the Molly we always knew she could be and that we could help her be! Patrick's methods and approach is amazing....with her and with us! We can honestly say we now speak dog! Best investment we could have ever made in our relationship with our Molly. I highly recommend!! Don't wait!! Thank you Patrick!

Patrick was amazing! We saw immediate results. We have struggled with behavioral issues with Ollie for 2 years and were extremely frustrated and didn't know what else to do. Patrick was able to help us in just a 2 hour lesson get results that are just amazing! He worked with our other dog as well so that all the rules are the same for both dogs. It is already better than we could have hoped. Everyone who visits us can't believe they are the same dogs because they are so well behaved! We are very excited to continue to work with him and train Ollie and us!
Patrick is a miracle worker. As he explains it, he's just communicating with Dexter, my dog, in Dexter's own language. What astounds me is how instantaneously my dog responded to the new cues and rules. It was within 20 minutes that he figured out the new doorbell etiquette (which is wild considering his old reaction when the door bell would go off). Now Dexter goes to his designated spot far away from the door when I open the front door. I initially called Patrick for help with walking on the leash when other dogs are present. We've made huge strides in the walking department which has made our daily walks so much less stressful. We've managed to completely change Dexter's response to the door bell, the pool man, USPS and even his fear/barking when people are in the pool. It's really about daily consistency and using the resources that Patrick provides. Patrick is easy to get ahold of and quick to response to emails and inquiries. It has been amazing to watch my relationship with my dog transform. I just wish I saved myself the stress and did this sooner. Absolutely worth it!
Thank you Patrick - you're amazing! We didn't know how to handle Charlie, our great Pyrenees mix, and Patrick came to the rescue. The techniques he used worked almost instantly and the expertise he showed was beyond what we could have imagined. Patrick was extremely professional and took the time to really listen to the issues we were facing. We are forever grateful!
Patrick is wonderful to work with and very professional. I highly recommend him and his method is traing!
Today I had my first session with Patrick and can’t believe the difference in my dog. He is calm and walking better on leash. I am so happy I contacted Bark Busters. It was me that needed the help and I feel more confident handling him.
Our first session with Patrick went great! We weren’t 100% sure this was the right direction for us and Buster, but are now 100% sold! Patrick does a great job of covering the material thoroughly but also in an “entertaining “ way that makes the time fly by. We were amazed by how quickly Buster responded to things. Even after Patrick left, we could see a difference in Buster’s behavior. Last night was the first time we were able to sleep with our bedroom door open- Buster stayed completely chill all night. We look forward to the future, continuing to work on building a loving and trusting relationship with Buster! Thanks, Patrick!
Patrick is excellent! I learned so much during first lesson! We worked in claiming front door, walking on leash, barking and so much more. My goal is working towards the Green zone for daily living!
Patrick just left we are extremely impressed with today's session. Will definitely recommend him to friends

I can’t tell you how happy we are with the training we got from Patrick Logue. After just a two hour lesson, we are truly amazed at the difference in our stubborn 20-month-old dachshund. Oscar has already learned to not pull on the leash while walking, and also to not bark and rush the front door if the doorbell rings.
We have been given the tools to manage and more fully enjoy our dog.
