"We have used them multiple times over the last year, several times for a week at once. The team is great (big thanks to !) and they are" reliable, well priced, and do a great job. We have no complaints.

"Overall was professional but did not focus on what we needed help with. Our dog knew the basics but was stubborn and didn't always listen" which is what we explained in our initial meeting. After agreeing to work with him he was very set in his program and we feel he didn't listen to what we needed. The first class he focused on housebreaking when our dog was already housetrained. From there he only focused on the very basic training even though the dog knew the command but didn't always listen to you especially if you didn't have a treat. I would recommend if you have not done any training courses with your dog but if you are beyond the basics I would go elsewhere.

LEARNED ALOT. SHE REMEMBERS THE ONES WE STAYED ON TOP OF BUT IT WAS TOO OVERWHELMING TO FIT THEM ALL IN. SO WE PICKED AND CHOSE. IS GREAT AND BECAUSE OF HER TEACHING SKILLS, HAS HER OWN KING-SIZED BED AND IS A GOOD WITH HER PARENTS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I contacted BarkBusters via their online form and was contacted right away by 's office. An appointment was set up for Sunday, December 18, 2011 at 4pm. One evening before our scheduled meeting I was really having a problem and was able to speak to on the phone and he was very helpful.

...More /> Just 2 hours before my scheduled appointment on Sunday, called saying after putting my address in his GPS he found I was not in his territory and another trainer would have to contact me. I never got to have ANYONE from BarkBusters come to my home on Sunday for an appointment that was SCHEDULED. I called the other trainer and left 3 messages but did not hear from her until the Monday morning. By this time I have already decided the deaf puppy was going back to the breeder as I could not deal with the fighting and constant worry/tension in my home. I wish would have figured out I was not in his territory sooner or would have made the effort to keep our appointment, then turn me over to the other trainer for my area. I strongly feel IF BarkBusters had kept their appointment with me I would still have the deaf puppy.

I am heartbroken I had to surrender this pup I had come to love and paid to have spayed, and that BarkBusters did not keep our scheduled appointment.

Also, the fees between the trainers in different areas seem to be different. The 2nd trainer had different fees than and I discussed which also played into my decision to not use them. It was a hard sell trying to get me to go with the $800 lifetime training with the 2nd trainer and I simply did not have that kind of money to put into dog training.

Joy came to our house to help with some behavioral issues we were having with our young dog (jumping, excessive barking, not coming when called). She included our whole family in the process and we were able to see improvement in our dog by the end of the session.

is very patient and knowledgeable about dog training. During our one-on-one session, she had our puppy sitting and staying within the hour. In the group class we focus on the two different skills that we then practice for the week. There is always playtime, either at the beginning or the end of class. The doggie socials are great ...More because you know all the animals there have their shots and is always working with the dogs to make them more socialable.

Our dog has taken obedience classes and worked with training consultants, but she continued to pull on the leash and lunge at people and other dogs. We asked to help. After an initial consultation, during which she met and observed the dog our interactions with her, we scheduled four sessions of practice. We began by teaching ...More with a clicker and treats, getting the dog to associate the clicker with positive results. We took walks in different locations, encountered people, traffic, and other dogs; would demonstrate how to desensitize the dog under varying circumstances. Between sessions, I sent her questions and concerns, and she responded with suggestions and creative solutions to any new problem we were having. At the end of the scheduled sessions, we were far better able to work with our dog and to encourage the behaviors we wanted.

uses only positive reinforcement to train dogs. She is very kind and gentle, but firm with . She taught us basic obedience training, which learned very quickly. She trains with food, rewards and the clicker. She has equipped me to continue working with him, improving his responses ...More to commands. Most importantly, she is doing a very good job in deconditioning to other dogs. By getting him to focus on me (and the food treats and clicks I supply), is learning to be less stressed and less reactive when we encounter other dogs. even arranged for a friend to bring his dog to a park so that and I could work with him. At the first sight of , did his usual growling, barking and lunging towards him. By the end of the hour, and were seated side by side and was totally calm. wants to continue working with because she is as thrilled with his progress as I am. I highly recommend as a trainer.

I boarded my dog here from approximately 1994 until 1999. I found out from his doctor that when my dog needed specialized treatment for advanced cancer, he had been abused at . When was taken outside with anything but his leash he exhibited behavioral problems. The technicians at the medical treating kennel ...More told me he acted that way because he had been abused at . I am angry because I trusted them.
