Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.

This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.

Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love. Most people don't know how to appeal to a dog's natural sense of leadership or communication. We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.

Marc and Karen are trainers with a wealth of experience. They helped so much with my dogs' leash pulling and barking at cars and people that would pass by the windows. They gave me the tools and knowledge to establish leadership in the home so that my anxious pup could relax. I highly recommend this life-long training!
Marc and Karen are truly master trainers! They are extremely effective, but they do so by structuring a plan for you to train your dog in a clear, empathetic, nurturing and sensible way. They helped me so much with my dog and they can do the same for you and yours!
Unbelievable! My wife and I were quite hesitant to spend the money for Mark and Karen at first but we’re so thankful we did! Instant results!!! Barking, biting, and overall rude behaviors towards other dogs and other people stopped immediately!
We have some maintenance to do with Butch to keep his new found amazing attitude, but it’ll totally be with it.
Thanks Mark and Karen, we couldn’t be more happy with the results!
Our Rottweiler is so aggressive that family and friends are hesitant to visit. We tried 2 dog trainers to no avail. Mark was able resolve the problem in 2 sessions. We are so grateful. Thanks again Mark
We rescued an 8 year old poodle who has fear issues. In one session, we (my husband and I) were able to begin the process of getting him to trust us, to learn that we will protect him and we are the pack leaders!
Karen taught us an unique approach that I never seen others suggest which made it worth trying. Definitely saw more instant results that I haven't seen before.
Karen gave me hope for a better behaved dog.

Our first session with Karen was great! We learned so much! We could not believe how quickly Trigger began to respond to the training.
I have been frustrated & in tears dealing with my German Shepherd. Bark Busters gives me hope and confidence.
Karen worked us through a lot of thing today, beginning with the theories behind Bark Busters methods, moving onto our basic training needs. The 2 hour virtual session was very informative and I look forward to our follow up appointment in a week.
Karen provided many amazing foundational tools in our first session, laying the groundwork for our training plan. We loved our first session with Karen and feel we are already on a good path to work with our pup.
Karen was very helpful and explained everything clearly and made sure I understood.
I feel as though a good foundation was laid for future training and I am looking forward to creating a better relationship between Jade and myself.
I feel that we now have the tools to enable Molly to be the best she can be.
We saw immediate improvements in our dog in our very first session! Very happy!
Incredible. Learned quite a bit about how to display a demand posture. How to use my dogs name for positive reinforcement. Great training exercises that produce on the spot correction and learning. Use of props as for demonstrating scenarios was fantastic.
Karen has been so helpful in training me to train my dog. He is already showing great signs of improvement with our training.
It was amazing how fast it worked! We feel such a relief having a way to help our dogs fit better into our lives. It was so simple to get the dogs to respond.
Ben, my recent rescue dog had already shown many qualities of a good companion. Learning to speak dog will be the best thing for him to understand his place in my home. I would recommend this training to anyone.
Excellent session with Karen! Our dog started to respond differently right away when we followed the methods as taught. Dramatic improvement in just one virtual session. Looking forward to the next session!
