    Photo of Nova We absolutely love Bark Busters. We own a Siberian Husky, Nova is her name, and it's been hard so far but with Derek's help we have made so much progress. Super grateful for the help it has been so stressful! Thank you!!

    I contacted Bark Busters over a year ago and it's hands down the best investment I've made for my dogs. Tonight, I had Lisette return to help me with door control and teaching my dogs to be respectful of visitors. By the end of our session I felt much more prepared and in control. The support and follow through that Bark Busters offers and the knowledge of both Lisette and Derek have been paramount to increasing the peace in our home and the bond with our pups. Thank You!

    I have a Frenchie named Mazie and a YorkiePoo named Bradley.

    Mazie is about 16 months old and has been with me since she was 8 weeks old. Until working with Lissette, Mazie ran the roost. She wasn't unruly or horrible, she just didn't want to be told what to do. Frenchie's are known to be stubborn. Thanks to Lissette's guidance, we are working toward Mazie knowing better. Leash pulling and jumping on guests are her weaknesses.

    Bradley is about 7 months old and we adopted him about a month ago. He has the sweetest personality and is very eager to learn and to please. His weakness is marking territory and resource guarding.

    I absolutely love that Bark Busters does not use a clicker or treats in their training methods. Everything has been easy to learn, and I have noticed that as long as I remain consistent, the pups are behaving better each day. THAT IS THE KEY: remain consistent and put in the work.

    As with parenting, our pets will become a product of what we teach, or do not teach them. Lissette has also shared information on better diet, supplements, and a holistic approach to the care of my dogs.

    I am looking forward to more sessions to continue increasing the lovability of my fur babies. This is a true investment in the long-term health and happiness of them. THANK YOU!

    Photo of My husband and I recently adopted a pure bread American Staffordshire Pitbull. We had no clue how to train him due to society stigmatizing the Pitbull as a dangerous animal to have if you're new to bigger breads. We also have two smaller dogs in the home and we wanted to find someone who is skilled to work with not only one but multiple animals and breeds. After a year of struggling to find a trustworthy & comfortable trainer we found Lissette & Derek! Our first visit was very active and fun. My husband & I were involved and taught with no judgement. She made us feel normal for speaking to our dogs and how she trained them. After the first week our dogs showed massive improvement. Being able to contact her with questions, concerns and food recommendations at any time is very convenient. When Derek came to meet us he was super nice and also made us feel like we were doing well and learning. He taught us more ways to walk our baby without being pulled or hurting ourselves. He understood our needs and our dogs needs which made us comfortable with him. A big bonus is they both are very knowledgeable, professional, educated and can carry on an everyday conversation. If you're worried about judgment and need help with your habits with your dog(s) or simply need help training your pup, these two will definitely be the best choice.
    I am happy I have them for a lifetime.
    Thank you Lissette and Derek.

    Couldn't be happier with Derek and Lissette! My two dogs are already well trained and obedient after ONE visit! Even better after the second

    Photo of Hello folks! Let's talk about one of my loves in life. FUR BABIES!!! I LOVE THEM!!! Me and my wifey have 4 beautiful pitbulls.

    So we have been having issues with all of our babies. Issues are: separation anxiety, alpha dog rivalry, not listening, tugging while walking etc. We paid for training prior to this and weren't too pleased with the prior training. We just didn't do it for a long while and my babies just started running the household which is my own fault. We talked about training and searched many different ones and read countless reviews and landed on Bark Busters.

    They were up front about training and pricing which I expect from a professional business. There were no gimmicks and they were very professional. They were able to come earlier than anticipated which is AWESOME. They are a husband and wife team. We worked with both but the wife came for the in house training.

    She spent quite a few hours working with us and our babies as well as giving a lot of nutritional advice which I believe is just as important. Food affects every animal, humans included. She was very professional and patient. I felt no rush at all from her. She wasn't worried about how long it would take. We did everything. All our issues were met and we continue to update them and do get a response. They gave us daily homework to do with them. It is work but it has made things better already.

    Do understand that these beautiful creatures are just like children and you have to work with them. Training dogs are done by you. They will support you, give you all the tools and show you what you need to do. You have to do the work. They gave us collars, bag tosses for cages and introduced us to their network of different services and people. Think we got a dog sitter out of it too. They will come back whenever we need them and will even work with us out in town.

    Bark busters is awesome. Derek and Lisette are the best! They have been working with our English bulldog since he was only a few months old. Not only have they helped us train him but have also given us advice on the proper food, leashes, and any other product you could imagine. All of their recommendations are amazing and have solved our dogs problems whether it be throwing up or dandruff. They also are ALWAYS available to answer questions, I always get a text back instantly when I have a question. They also are great at re-enacting real life situations in order to do hands-on training. For example, we were having a problem with our dog when we took him to Target, so Derek met us at Target for our training session and helped us on the spot! We are so thankful for them and would highly recommend their services to anyone!

    Photo of Hemi I have to say this is way past due. I am a domestic violence survivor; Derek and Lissette helped me when I was at my lowest. I had just left my violent relationship and needed to get training for my beloved doggy Hemi. Unfortunately he was also affected by the negative relationship and had aggression issues. Both Derek & Lissette where professional but also very understanding and showed me compassion. My dog has become a better boy with their training, and anything I have ever need their help with, they do their best to go above and beyond. It's great that even though I had lost so much in that change in our lives, I did not lose my beloved companion due to their help! Thank you very much for everything over the last few years.

    Bark busters is absolutely a life saver. My dog was so hard to handle but once Derek trained him life got a lot easier. My dog is now an angel. I am so grateful for this company and the people who run it. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Lissette helped me with Milo and his potty and chewing issues. She made it very easy to understand and even my skeptical wife was blown away! Our biggest hold back from getting training was we didn't want any collars on him. Bark Busters didn't use them at all. Call them for dog training!

    Derek and Lisette are experts at training dogs to learn to obey their owners. We've had them help us with a variety of obedience related issues for both our puppies and every time they show us how to instill a sense of respect that dogs don't necessarily have for their owners. Dogs are amazing animals that are great companions, but they need training to learn how to behave. And we humans need training to understand how to properly communicate with our furry friends. If they aren't properly trained they can exhibit problematic behaviors and they wind up being blamed for these behaviors. But as Derek and Lisette teach us, it's not the dog's fault, it is the owner's failure to teach proper behavior and boundaries.

    As first time dog owners of a French Bulldog and an English Bulldog, we've had quite a bit of a learning curve. Without Bark Busters we would have continued to struggle and not known how to get our pups to behave. The BB method works. In addition to a solid training method, Derek and Lisette are always available to help out if your dog is struggling with issues such as resource guarding and marking, etc. They quickly respond and provide help as soon as they can. They teach you how to train your dog and offer excellent advice related to nutrition and the health for your dogs. I highly recommend Derek and Lisette to train your dogs
