Greg was awesome!!!  After having our puppy for a few weeks, she began exhibiting signs of aggression and nipping.  At first we were a little reluctant to hire a professional and tried following online articles and videos on how to train your dog.  We tried and failed; our dog just would not listen.  After finally giving in, we called Greg and he came for an initial two hour visit.  From the moment he entered our home, he began training our dog and she was completely receptive to all of his efforts.  We have since faithfully employed Gregs advice and techniques and our pup has been fully receptive to our commands and has not been showing the same signs of aggression.In all, I can not say enough about Greg and his efforts.  He clearly cares greatly for dogs and just an all around great human.  I would recommend  Greg to anyone in need of dog training, 100x over.

I would never have believed it if I did not experience it myself.  I worked with Justin one day, and the next day I had the best walks I have ever had with our extremely energetic chocolate lab, Otis. Otis's energy level, combined with the fact that he is a strong, solid 80 pounds of dog who does have a history of reacting to other dogs, made life challenging.  We had previously worked with a different trainer without much luck, so I was becoming quite frustrated.  When Justin arrived, I could not believe how quickly and thoroughly he understood Otis and what we needed to do with him. Justin seems to honestly have instinctual insight and he genuinely loves dogs and loves working with them. He provided very clear, easy to understand instructions, and was encouraging and patient as I practiced the techniques that he explained. I also have recorded instructions and print outs to help me remember and feel confident in what I am doing. I also really appreciated his explanations of the reasoning for the techniques he taught me. It makes sense and gives me the satisfaction that I am doing right by Otis. I am seriously relieved that I am now able to set and maintain boundaries that enable me to enjoy our walks and interactions at home. What a relief! No matter your dog or situation, Justin is definitely the trainer for you! More...

Kayla is as good as they come. She is responsive, friendly, knowledgeable, and has a heart of gold. (I've not yet met Randy but I'm sure he's a peach too.) We had our first training session for our new pup with Kayla and we feel prepared to guide our new family member in the right direction. I have used Bark Busters training for my old dogs and the techniques work like a charm!  Since it's been 14 years since I've gone through the training, we thought we'd be proactive and get help right away with our new pup. Kayla has helped with building leadership, kennel training, walking, distance control, separation anxiety, antagonistic behavior toward other pet, and potty training...and we've only had one training session so far! Training your pet the right way is time and energy consuming, but I feel well-equipped with Kayla as my consultant. I am lucky to have found this dynamic duo! They come highly recommended and so do the training techniques! More...

WOW! We had Frank visit our home a week ago and we are just amazed at the results we see in our terrier and pitbull. Our terrier would bark at every noise she heard and our pitbull had extreme anxiety outside and around other dogs... the difference is outstanding! The terrier barks less and even if she does start barking we're able to stop her immediately. We're also able to snap our pitbull out of what we referred to as the "red zone." Once she zones in on another dog it was impossible to get her attention and calm her down but now we use the techniques Frank taught us and she snaps out of it right away. We still have a long way to go, and we were skeptical of the training at first, but the progress we've made in this short amount of time was worth it! More...

We contacted Karen to help us with our baby/dog situation at home and saw great results after the first session! Our issue was that after our 1 year old baby became mobile, our terrier mix was acting aggressive whenever the baby came near him. We had to use a gate to separate them but then he would whine or bark nonstop. After one session, Karen helped us establish boundaries/distance with our dog. He is now able to stay calmly in one spot while we play with the baby in the same room or another room nearby. We don't need to use the gate anymore. In addition, Karen helped us with issues like stealing food from the table and barking at doorbell, which used to be nightmare for us. She really helped us understand how to communicate with our dog. The technique is simple yet effective, and we are now able to enjoy our time with him and the baby together without needing to worry about safety all the time. More...

I’m just so impressed with Doug’s training! When he first said “towards the end of our session, I will be able to come to the door and they won’t bark or jump up on me” I though ‘yeah right.... clearly you don’t know our crazy pups yet!’ But after just one day, our dogs are SO well behaved! I don’t get knocked over from jumping anymore, they don’t bark anymore, don’t pull me with the leash anymore! All in ONE DAY! I can’t wait to recommend Doug to all of my friends, family, and patients I see! THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MY LITTLE FAMILY’S LIFE!! More...

Marc is truly a miracle worker. I am very satisfied with the results. I had a defiant dog who was completely out of control and Marc's methods truly work if you STICK to the plan. He left me a plan each week to follow, and both of my dogs are amazing. He turned my timid dog into a confident pooch and made my aggressive 105 lb rottweiler who bit someone in the past an obedient little angel who waits for my command before doing ANYTHING. This training works if you follow the plan, my significant other did not listen and does not have the same result from our pets as I do. This training is worth every penny and I have never met someone more dedicated to their clients and passionate about their work than Marc and his wife. They are there beyond the time that you pay for. The only way you can get your dog to listen to you is by listening and following what this PAID PROFESSIONAL says. If this program does not work for you, then you have to go back to kindergarten or have your skull checked out because it is SO AMAZINGLY EASY! More...

Jeri come to our house and spent several hours with us to help us identify what we needed to help us and our rescue mix who had been displaying aggressive and bad behavior life style.  The first part was very informative with a lot of information sharing as we explained to her what was going on and what we needed help with.  We then moved to phase two in starting our re thinking of how we were allowing Arlo to be head of household and that needed to stop.  We were made aware of techniques that we needed to implement to help Arlo relax more and feel more confident in just being a dog and not a pack leader.  We've seen an almost instant improvement with how he is and behaves.  This has been a very positive experience with Jeri and Bark Busters and highly recommend her.  One of the best decisions we've made for not only Arlo but our entire family.

Our little boy, Royce, was rescued 6 months ago.  We had no details of his prior 2 years with his other family.  We knew one thing, he was a barker and a protector.  Greg allowed Royce to "go into Royce zone" while he explained the methodology behind the training program.  After Greg was done with our conversation.  He immediately put the training into action.  We were amazed and astonished at how effective and immediate Greg communicated with Royce.  Greg's genuine passion as a dog trainer showed in his patience's with his clients (humans and dogs) and immediate follow up with our session.  We would highly recommend Greg for any behavior modification for your dog.

Best dog training experience I've ever had. Dick Messenger taught my girlfriend and I how to train our dog properly and effectively. Hes very professional, personable and clearly very good with dogs. If you listen to him, you'll see the results you're looking for. Would recommend his guidance every time. My little (65 lbs.) 9 month old Catahoula/Lab mix is very energetic and with his help, shes been a lot more well behaved when we want her to be. More...

What a great experience, I just adopted a dog about 6 months ago, and was having some behavioral issues with him. After two lessons with Greg K, he is a totally different dog. Their method of training really works, and I would 100 percent recommend them to everyone! I can't wait to get some more sessions under out belts. More...

I don't write a lot of reviews but Sharon is worth it.  My dog is a rescue from the shelter and was very hyper and filled with anxiety.  All that I can say is Wow!  My dog responded so well to her training and she trained us as well.  It's unbelievable how much was accomplished in her visit.  I also love the training in my home, which is a familiar setting for my dog. I would definitely recommend Sharon for anyone who is considering training their dog. More...

My rescue Phoebe and I have been struggling with her lack of manners and adjustment to living in a home. I called Bark Busters. Between the call and the appointment, Phoebe's behaviors escalated and she bit me. After a 3+ hour session with Jeri I am no longer considering surrendering Phoebe. The simple yet effective tools Jeri taught me have already made a big change in how I interact with Phoebe and how she acts and reacts. I highly recommend Bark Busters. Jeri is a dog whisperer. Thank you Jeri for the wonderful session. More...

After exhausting all options I saw bark busters on FB and saw all these dogs absolutely knackered at the end of there session and I thought to myself I bet my girl would still have loads of energy, so thought I would take the plunge and yes my girl was knackered after first session I can not thank Emma enough for her time and patience as it was difficult as I have three dogs, but Emma got Yasmin to listen when she was meant to, I look forward to our catch up in couple of weeks, Yasmin is slowly getting there, day by day she is improving

We had a fantastic first training session with Ryan. I adopted my rescue dog in 3/2019 and the feeling that I can now communicate with him on terms he understands and that I can work with is so incredible. It was a bit overwhelming at first to find out I was doing everything so wrong ... but knowledge is power. Leash walking and his focus on me as his leader has opened up new doors for us! More...

We have two Shetland sheepdogs who's nature it is to bark the announcement of all comings and goings, tiny noises outside, imaginary aliens, essentially everything. It had reached the point that I didn't want to be home and certainly could never work at home. Cody spent about two and one half hours with us and immediately got results. We have had dogs, and always a Sheltie, for over thirty years, I wouldn't call us novices, but this barking and a few other behaviors were becoming too much. What will be the proof is if we can continue the techniques that Cody taught us for lasting results. But it was amazing and so thankful for his help. Highly recommend Cody and Barkbusters!! More...

Justin truly is the San Diego dog whisperer.  My wife and I recently decided it was time to search for a private trainer for our 3 year old golden retriever in order to get a handle on some of his bad habits.  After looking through yelp, Justin's overwhelming reviews made him the pretty obvious choice.  We decided we might as well go with the best if we really wanted to commit to a trainer. The wait was well worth it as after just our first two hour session yesterday, the differences have been night and day. Justin's passion for dogs and helping people learn to properly communicate with their dog was immediately obvious. He truly cares about his techniques being effective long after he leaves. It was so amazing to see how well our dog would respond to us within minutes of learning Justin's exercises for communication. Our amazement only continued to grow once we went outside for leash training. Walks have always been a mix of either being pulled, or needing to pull when the brakes are put on to sniff every smell or lunge toward any passing dog. His leash skills improved quickly yesterday and to our amazement stuck overnight as I was able to easily write this review while walking him..which would have been an impossible task in the past. The exercises to maintain his training take little time at all and we are very much looking forward to having such a well-behaved, responsive dog.  We cannot thank Justin enough and would highly recommend him!

We love Emma! I contacted Emma after one REALLY hard morning with my cheeky 12 week pup that had me feeling really lost. Immediately over the phone she made me feel better and like I wasnt going completely insane. Flash forward to our first 3 hour session and straight away balance had been restored in our pack and my pupdaddy and I had the right tools and direction to move forward together with our pup. Weeks later I can confidently say that Bark Busters has been such an investment for us all. We are getting the best out of our boy and his potential, and he is getting the best from us as his leaders. Emma is lovely, relatable and clearly LOVES what she does which is reflected in her work. 1000000% worth it. More...

AMAZING! I’ll start by saying that the service from the moment I picked the phone to call them , to the moment Luis (dog behaviorist and trainer) came to my house , everything has been amazing . To share a little bit of my story my dog has been suffering from separation anxiety after my other pet passed away. After trying many different things (creams, pills, collars , music , etc) nothing was working . The situation got so bad to the point that neighbors complained about the loud howling my beagle was making . But that’s when LUIS came to the RESCUE :)! He explains everything so clear and focuses not only on your dog , but also on YOU! He teaches you how to be a leader in the house , and works with you to focus on what mistakes you’re making , so your dog can behave the correct way. After my first session , I can understand my dog better now and will continue working on the excersises and homework Luis left to us. Definitely look forward to the next session . Please don’t give up on your dogs :)! They are our great furry friends and with the great help that Luis can provide , they can be on an amazing track of becoming amazing dogs , and for us humans great Leader of the pack More...

The technique used by barkbusters trainer is unique and very easy. We had four unruly dogs and with Luis' help our home is now civil and an easy-going, nuisance barking free zone in a bout 3 days we noticed a huge change in our dogs' behavior. Luis Escobar is thorough and gives great details and examples of the training techniques used. I strongly recommend this service for anyone that needs control of their four-legged kids. I must say that homework is a must and following the trainer's advice is a must. This was money well spent. More...

Oh my goodness. I am absolutely amazed. I have 2 one year old pit bulls. They were psycho to say the least. They never had issues with aggression, but they definitely lacked basic manners. I saw immediate results after only 1 session with Greg. The techniques that he taught us and walked us through were incredibly effective. He also explains the science behind the reason that these methods work which is amazing. I am so impressed. I am looking forward to our second session. I highly recommend this service to anyone with ill mannered dogs. If I could give 10 stars I would! Thank you Greg! More...

The facility is nice and clean, in a convenient location (with great parking) and the process is always very smooth. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes. To top it off, they reach out after appointments to check in on your pet. I will never take my pets anywhere else! More...

Everything else here is great and we will continue to bring our pets here! More...

We have a two year old Maltese/Shitzu cross who because of some early medical issues was what we thought impossible to train, in particular his barking. Well how wrong was we. Along came Kath from Bark busters who spent several hours educating Sandra and I on the reason Oscar was so mischievous. Well I know it’s only day one but there has been a remarkable change in him. Kath we can’t thank you enough and evan Sandra’s sister who dropped by, asked how it went after meeting you for that short period. I commented to the family the night before with some scepticism “how will she do it” well Kath taught US how to do it. If you have a problem dog then do not hesitate to give Kath a call, she’s bloody awesome More...

Worth it. Linda was very effective in showing us leadership skills dogs understand. After the first visit it was clear what we needed to do.

I have a dog who is nervous, stupid and big. In order to take him in, he needs to be medicated, beforehand. I do my part by giving him the medication, the good people at Urban Vet Care do their part by reading the advice, written by the people who've handled my dog before them. It goes as well as it possibly can; they are safe and my dog gets the care he needs. I don't know how you could do better than these people. More...

Emma is amazing! I have recently taken on my two dogs, a 3 year old female Shar Pei and a 6 year old male Jack Russell x papillon. I am having a baby in a few months and need to get them under control, so I contacted Bark busters and I am so glad I did!! They were so out of control when people arrived that I have avoided having people over because of them jumping up, running around and barking/crying with excitement, among other behavior issues; very excitable, marking inside, rushing through doors, pulling on lead, mouthing when excited, recall etc. Within minutes of arriving, Emma had both my dogs not jumping up and much calmer! By the time the session was nearly over they were completely mentally exhausted in the best way and I truely feel like they are different happier dogs! After just one day since Emma visited I can now come through the door without them trying to push through and jumping all over me and the barking/crying stops nearly straight away! I’m very excited to keep working on all the skills we have learnt and can’t believe how simple yet effective this training is! Can not thank Emma enough! More...

Amazing results in just a matter of hours! I have put Leo through training before with the introduction of a prong collar and did not receive the same results such as this. Leo reacted really well to the positive reinforcement of praising and petting than I’ve ever seen him with just receiving treats. The exercises were simple and easy to do after walking through it with John and Leo caught on quickly. With the simple exercises I feel more confident controlling Leo (who’s 75-80 pounds of just muscle, and I’m a small 5’3” woman), so I’m able to assert my leadership better. John was really knowledgeable and had great pointers not only for Leo but for myself as his owner. This training is not only for the dogs but for the owners as well, which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to any dog owner because they take the time to really get to know you and your dog first, and then build a plan and personally fits your needs. I am truly happy and amazed and look forward to working with them in the future. More...

The work that Ryan does is Amazing! I have a pitt/lab mix who was just too rowdy. She jumped on people, pulled constantly on her leash and had zero manners. When she was a puppy I worked with her through three levels of training at Petsmart. It was really more trick based (sit, stay, roll, spin, etc..), but she needed serious help with her manners! Despite constant effort, I could not get through to her especially out in public where it's critical. By the end of my first meeting with Ryan, Amber was showing awesome changes! I've been working with her each day and she is becoming such a great, well behaved dog! This has really been a life changing experience and has drastically improved me and my puppers relationship! Thanks Ryan!! More...

It was a super successful session. Kath also helped us with our very sensitive and overly clingy (nearly) 8 yr old male chihuahua x staffy. It was absolutley a value for money service.

She took the time and ended up spending 3 hours with us on our first visit. She gave us great training tools and showed us exactly how to use them. She has you use them as she's still there and makes corrections as needed so you feel comfortable before she leaves. She came back for a reassessment after 2 weeks. We used her tools and information and I can honestly say, the training works!! It's now been 4 weeks and things are just getting better!

Our two beautiful dogs started developing extremely aggressive and volatile behaviour which we had started to completely lose hope with (as we had googled and researched our hearts out on what to do with minimal/no success)... But after committing to follow through with contacting a trainer- we chose Bark Busters based on their excellent reputation and incredible phone call with who was also the trainer, Emma. Despite 2-3 years of progressively worse behaviour, Emma has given us an arsenal of training, tips and equipment all included which has completely reformed the way myself, my partner and our dogs Loki & Gaia co-exist! Thank you Emma & Bark Busters for pathing a future for a good quality of life for us all, we look forward to the future sessions and the lifetime support included is absolutely incredible. Photo below of them together.... IMPOSSIBLE without a fight to the death 2 weeks ago, look at them now!! Endless thank you!!! Marco, Nic, Gaia & Loki More...

Luis is AMAZING! Extremely professional made our session a lot of fun. Our family gained so much insight. The results are incredible. Humans are the first to want to understand and execute the instructions. Its up to us to train our dogs properly. I'm so grateful to have met Luis. THANK YOU! More...

Luis is an excellent trainer, and behavioral therapist,; he takes the approach of training the human first, before he can begin to train the dog. Luis takes time to understand the behaviors (both human and pet) that need correction, and then proceeds to teach you, as the owner, how to correct them and maintain them. I definitely recommend Luis and Bark Busters for anyone that has any issue with their pets. More...

I have two pit mixes, Honey & Theo, with aggressive/reactive behavior and John gave me a sense of hope that they can change. Within a couple of hours he worked with both of them extensively and my dogs were already showing major progress. I can now walk them without scanning the area wondering who they will go crazy on next. I highly recommend this company and can’t thank John enough for really helping me with them. It’s only the first week and my dogs have been catching on very quickly to the material provided. Major plus is the no use of the shock collar, prong collar or any training materials like that. This is a lifelong way of teaching the dogs to behave well which is what I was looking for in a trainer. Thank you John!!! More...

Emma you are a star. I have a 2 and a half year old Labrador Bruno. I was having all sorts of issues with Bruno as I am his third owner but his last owner thanks to Emma. He got attacked by a dog not long after I got him , since then he wants to attack every dog he sees. So he was a night mare to walk so I would take him early in the morning and late at night so he couldn’t see any other dogs, but I couldn’t see Bruno as he is a Chocolate Lab . Emma came to our home and trained me and also Bruno what a amazing difference. Emma I can’t thank you enough for all your help you are amazing. Thanks Jo and Bruno More...

Glen has provided us an invaluable info on how to manage and care for our furr-dog to be a pleasant and best companion on our life’s journey. Our dog has become a different and better dog to have around since day one with Glen.

The results in less of a month are amazing just following the tasks Luis gave me and my consistent daily training for a few minutes with my little pup is something that I couldn’t believe until you became the leader of the pack. Thanks I can’t be more grateful of the results. I’m still learning from Luis and my dog. More...

Reggi had his first lesson with Emma this week and is coming in leaps and bounds since. The techniques Emma uses in training are amazing. Reggi is a 9 week old staffy x boxer puppy who was already developing some naughty habits, he is now picking up on the commands very quickly. He’s already learning to walk on the lead ready for his first day out. Emma has been great in communicating, sending us further information and checking in on Reggi. Would 100% recommend to anyone, worth the money. Thank you! More...

We really love urban vet care! We used to live around the corner but now live 25 minutes away. It would have made sense to change to a closer, more convenient option, but we decided not to because of how much we like Urban Vet! When we lived closer, we would stop in all the time to get our dog weighed (he was a growing puppy!) and everyone was so kind and welcoming and would greet our dog by name! Since we’ve moved away, we don’t go as often so no one there recognizes him anymore, which is too bad! But, they are always nice to us and always act like they think our dog is as great as we think he is. I definitely would (and have many times) recommended Urban Vet to friends! More...

Buddy has SEVERE separation anxiety to the point that we couldn’t be in a different room with him going BERSERK. Just by following the training taught to us today, Buddy has been able to be in a different room for over an hour and he just laid on the couch until he needed to be coerced to join us with a Milkbone. If you have any issues with your dog that you just don’t see an end in sight with, DO NOT HESITATE to call and schedule an appointment IMMEDIATELY!!! More...

Luis Escobar’s training was worth every penny. In two hours, he changed the behavior of three demons to absolute angels. I was initially skeptical with a new trainer since there was “no” positive outcome from previous trainers. We desperately needed in-home training and since one of our dogs is on a raw diet and the other two have delicate stomachs, treat based “bribery” training would not work. Luis was courteous, professional, and completely prepared for the most positive outcome. Before the training, no one wanted to come to our home since our dogs barked incessantly, and all I did was scream. When I would come home, my Porti would paw me leaving scratch marks, jumped and almost knocked me over. Luis restored order and respect. I wish my husband would have found Luis/Bark Busters a year ago. Luis’ training has truly been a miracle. More...

(She likes to jump!)Here's a story...of a dog named Legend...who was the leader of Myth and lil Luna Bug. He'd gotten way too big...for his britches (that's his ego )...the girls just ran a muck. ‍Til one day when the lady found Bark Busters! and Michelle Willey comes to her home to save the day.   Michelle teaches her to take charge of her family...by showing her what her dogs needed her to "say".

We have seen an instant improvement in our two dogs Arlo, a 2.5 year old staffy x whippet and Leela, a 1.5 year old kelpie x dachshund. Which has also been acknowledged by our friends. The training is easy to understand and implement, putting us back in control and at the top of the pecking order. We addressed jumping, barking, anxiety, recall, walking on the lead and more in our initial session. Plus we now know that taking control of these will also lead to less destruction in our home long term and happier, easy going dogs that we can take out in public without concern. Emma is thorough, understanding and non-judgemental. We didn’t feel stupid asking questions or embarrassed to share our concerns with our dogs. I’m looking forward to continuing working with Emma to constantly develop our skills and knowledge. Most of all, I’m looking forward to having two well behaved dogs! More...

About a year ago I signed my yellow lab Bentley up for the lifetime membership with Bark Busters while I was living in San Diego. We met with a trainer there twice but knew my dog might need more help. I'm so happy I went with this company because they are nationwide. I now live in northern Virginia and I was able to find a bark buster trainer out here to work with my dog! My dog and I had a great experience with Jeanie! She is very patient, easy to talk to and addressed all my questions and concerns. Before even working with my dog, she sat down with me to really get to know the issues we were facing with him like pulling and jumping. She modeled how to correct these issues with the bark busters training collar and "bah" then positive praise when he corrected the behavior. After she had me try the techniques. My dog has responded really well to them so far and is no longer pulling or jumping to greet strangers when I walk him! I feel much more comfortable walking him now and it's a much more enjoyable experience for everyone :) More...

I was beginning to not like my little dog because she had become so naughty. She would runaway at every opportunity, bark constantly, aggressively growl at me and not do anything I told her. I saw Bark Busters come up on Facebook and decided we needed to get their help. I felt like this was going to work for us from the first phone call as the lady was very helpful and positive. Then Glenn arrived and had my dog eating of his hand immediately. I now have a much quieter and calmer dog who does what I tell her. I can't thank Glenn enough for training my dog and me how to behave and get back to the loving relationship that we had before. I will always be grateful to you Glenn. I can't recommend Glenn highly enough. He has made such a difference for us in 2 weeks that I now have control of the dog instead of the other way around. Many thanks, Cath and Steffie Chapman More...

Not only am I comfortable taking him out in public now, but I am confident in my abilities to be a great dog mom!

Emma is incredible!! Bowie, is a very intelligent, loving and adorable 18mth Boxer/Staffy, but... Oh Boy!! There is also "Capt. Destruct-O", with issues! I have tried vet suggested group classes; 1-1 trainers; theramone collars and biscuits; even been recommended to try an animal behaviouralist!! I did not know what else to do, and was at my wits end!! So much so, that I was even starting to think the un-thinkable!! Enter Emma, and the Barkbusters methods. After just one 2hr session the difference was amazing. Now, there is no longer a 26kg jumping, excited whirlwind every time I open the door, my house and contents are no longer a race track, and walking is now a fun training exercise rather than a stressful yelling chore!! The next step, undoubtedly the hardest, is calming the reaction to other dogs, and learning how to be sociable. Already, again a noticeable change has occurred, thanks to Emma. Bowie is not perfect by any means, and there is still work to be done, but he is definatly 100x improved, and I'm a much happier doggie-dad!! Heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Emma, who has done such an amazing job. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone. Regards Cliff and Bowie. More...

We have now had 2 sessions with Luis and the change in our 2 dogs is unbelievable. We still have a long road ahead of us but we are so happy with the progress we have already made. He has taught us tools to handle our 2 pit bulls who have sibling rivalry, bad door manners and general bad habits. We are enjoying being able to do more with them and not being worried all the time about one of them having a bad reaction and us not being able to control the situation.Luis is patient with all of our questions and is always quick to write or call back when we are in between sessions.His methods are great because it doesn’t include any harsh treatment which was a big deal for us when we started this! We could not be happier about working with him and look forward to our continued journey with him on helping us to make our dogs in to happy well behaved members of our family! More...

I am amazed at the level of success my dogs achieved after one session with Mark. The techniques are based on tone and posture as opposed to harsh techniques or treats. Mark simply breaks down the behavior and how to speak dog so your pup understands what you want from him.  It's amazing how responsive dogs are when they have clear direction from the pack leader. I highly recommend Bark Busters. They guarantee their training for the life of the pet. You've got nothing to lose and a lifetime of joy with a well behaved dog to gain. More...

We wasted so much money with another training company for two years...our dog was anxious, jumped, barked incessantly, had accidents all over the house. The training involved excessive treats and clicking. It didn't work. Our dog would run outside, bark at us and the neighbors and then refuse to come in until we gave her treats. If we didn't have treats in hand - forget it. If we went outside to get her, we would end up chasing her around the yard as she barked at us.

When I asked the original company for help and told them we didn't feel like our dog was getting better, they said we just needed to be more consistent. We finally wrote to the company and asked if we could re-home our dog. Thankfully they didn't write back.

Our neighbor came over one day to drop something off and as we were repeatedly chasing our dog away from the front door, over the barking, he shouted, "Your dog makes Marley (from "Marley and Me") look easy."

We contacted Bark Busters as a last resort. After 20 minutes with Ryan - it's like we have a new dog.

We 100% recommend Ryan and Bark Busters to anyone who has issues with their dog. We wish we would have found him sooner and saved us and our dog from a lot of unnecessary stress. It is SO simple - no treats or clickers required. It's a kind, gentle, easy, immediate system.

Ryan is genuine, he is real, he has a great sense of humor. He explains things simply and puts them to work immediately. He completely transformed our dog. (Well - he actually just taught us the right behaviors, which turned our dog into an angel).

We wholeheartedly recommend BarkBusters.

We just had our first training session with Jeanie and honestly, we are so glad we committed to it. We have a 1.5 year old rescue named Bentely. He is in his adolescent stage and was such a terror to walk. He wouldn't listen to my husband or myself and eventually became so fearful of the vet after a few trips and few ear infections later. Unfortunately Bentley lost trust in both of us and would not listen or let us do anything i.e. administer his medicine, clip his nails and didn't listen to any basic commands. After a lot of research, I came across bark busters and read all the reviews. Reading stories of client's who were also at their wits end with their dog and losing hope helped me realize, there was help out there. After a little hesitation, we committed to our first appointment with Jeanie and immediately we were so glad we did. She took the time to teach us the world through Bentley's eyes. It was truly eye opening. Understanding the basics and implementing through training made complete sense. We already saw a huge improvement in the first session and we will diligently do our homework and excited for Jeanie to come back in the next few weeks. This process works. We were so stressed and felt like we tried everything with Bentley. Just 2 hours of training with Jeanie and we feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders. We cannot wait to reset, reinforce everything we learned and we are so excited to see the change in Bentley. More...

Connie really helped my 8 month old French Bulldog! So many positive changes after our 1st session. He no longer charges the door to greet or jump on people. He hasn't chewed a Barbie doll or anything else that isn't his in a week! It's just incredible how much we learned so quickly! More...

To begin with.. Luis is the best and just make an appointment right now. The investment in your dogs obedience is worth it. You see results right always. My name is Renee and I own Rottweiler names Kaiser who is 1 year and half old. Kaiser isn’t aggressive but he is very very playful. He makes everything a game. We were having trouble walking him ( he walked us) and he had separation anxiety every time my father left causing him to scratch some doors down. Luis began with explain how dogs think, how to become a leader and really designed a plan that works with Kaiser. Let’s just say that I’m already applying what me and my family has learned. He is much calmer, his behaviors are different and the separation anxiety is coming to an end. He is calmer and I am more confident. Overall, Luis is the best! Thank you so much!! More...

Derek and Lisette contacted me immediately to make sooner arrangements to help with our dog. Training with them was simple but very effective. Easy for owners to follow as well. Left us with all the tools we need to keep training our dog!! Highly recommended for anybody looking to train their dog!!! Thank you guys sooo much YOU'RE OUR LIFE SAVER!!! More...

I rescued a French Bulldog almost one year ago. She is the sweetest dog ever…except when it came to other dogs. Zoe, our seven-year-old pooch lived in a home with a very aggressive mini-pit and he bullied her constantly. When I try to walk her it’s a nightmare, she goes after any dog; from a Great Dane to a Chihuahua and forget taking her to the park or anything like that. We had an incident last week and I knew I needed it to be handled, I had no idea where to go since I clearly can’t do group classes. Bark Busters were referred to me by a friend.

Derek and Lissette came over last night and spent three hours with me and Zoe. I liken their approach to dog training as I would to conscious parenting. It was AMAZING! They taught me techniques that were so doable with zero aggression or anger and not treats but lots of praise. I was so impressed with both of them and my dog picked up on the training very quickly.

This morning we got up, did our homework using their commands and suggestions and she did great! I feel like I have hope for my dog, which makes me so happy! Maybe next she’ll be able to make some friends.

I highly recommend Bark Busters!

We've met with Derrick and Lisette for only one session so far and since then and with the help of our assigned homework from them we have been much more effective in communicating with our dogs. They're much more attentive because we're handling them in a way that they can understand and fully respond to. I definitely recommend Bark Busters training to anyone with a dog; wether your dog has good or bad behavior to start with you'll see an improvement in your relationship with your dog after training with them. I was skeptical at first but I'm a believer now. Their method truly works! More...

Hire Lissette and Derek - you won't regret it! My dogs are my children and my world. But my leniency had resulted in them running amuck, and none of us were happy. After thorough online research, I found Lissette and Derek. The reviews were oustanding, and their and Bark Buster's humane training fits my outlook. After the very first session, the dogs were already behaving better and were clearly more relaxed. No whistles or shock collars - just some easy exercises that provide instant results. With 5 minutes of "homework" a day, my dogs are quickly developing good habits. Lissette and Derek are thoroughly knowledgeable about dog behavior and explained why the dogs do what they do. With that information, I understand what is happening and why Lissette and Derek's exercises work. We are on the way to a very happy home and I am extremely grateful! More...

We met with Derek and Lissette yesterday. We have a new puppy Maddie, and wanted to learn how we best can teach her to listen to us and respect that she is not the alpha in the house. We love this little girl and wanted to make sure we did not over spoil her to where problems can occur with her behavior later on. Derek and Lissette were great with Maddie, they taught us a lot in just the first visit. We had been doing a lot of things wrong, they taught us how Maddie thinks and responds according to what we do. I feel we have some great tools to work with and feel confident we can get this to work. We already see results so now it's up to us to follow through with this. I also know that Derek and Lisette will be right behind us whenever we need them. Not only are they great instructors but they are also great people. We will defenately recommend them to others.

Derek and Lissette were amazing. They spent a few hours with us at our home and helped correct the humans in our house to make sure we were the pack leaders.

I'd recommend them to anyone looking to learn how to correctly and humanely train and interact with their dogs. More...

It's my 1st time fostering a dog & this little female Italian Greyhound came from a hoarding situation, then was in the pound for 3 months & then was rescued by Wagging Tails & now has come to my home. She had been thru quite a lot & was understandably scared stiff for 2 weeks and wouldn't acknowledge my dog or any humans. She would not let people pet her or pick her up & she would often shake out of fear anytime I talked or entered a room that she was in. Lissette came to my home & within 10 mins had the scared little rescue dog (Cosette) looking & listening to her and got her to come out of her hiding spot in my bedroom. Then only about 10 mins later she was able to sit next to Cosette and pet her without shaking or running away. It was miraculous to see the potential in this little rescue girl and how quickly she responded to Lissette. I should've sought out help from Lissette at Bark Busters way sooner! She is a dog whisperer! More...

I came to learn about Derek and Lissette through my advocacy and rescue work with our Henderson Animal Shelter. They have provided many, many, volunteer hours at the shelter to help socialize, train and enrich the lives of shelter dogs in hopes that they become more adoptable. Other than their dedication to helping shelter pets, they offer an appealing, discounted, training offer to individuals who adopt from the shelter to help with transition into the home. Their valuable service helps to ensure that adopted pets do find their forever families.

I am a local Pet Sitter/Dog Walker. Lissette referred one of her clients to me who has mobility issues. The woman obtained some training services from Derek and Lissette and was very happy with their service. She needed assistance with getting her dog exercise and walks, something she isn't able to do at this time. Knowing that Derek and Lissette cared enough about their client to ensure that another professional could offer assistance, speaks volumes.

Their, humane, training techniques are respected by many. I highly recommend Bark Busters for your training needs, of many varieties.

Thank you Lisette for our first lesson with our headstrong and independent Australian Cattle dog! Although we had taken obedience classes it didn’t help our boy with his aggression issues. During the first lesson Lisette helped us be consistent and in charge with verbal correction. No treats or harsh tools involved! After chatting with us about our boy and his brother, what they eat, how they interact, and what their life is like, she quickly understood his issues and developed a plan to desensitize him. What a difference! Before she left we were even able to enter the closet with the vacuum cleaner without him becoming agitated and know by doing our homework we’ll be able to turn it on later with the same calm results. The boys were waiting away from the front door with small corrections instead of being underfoot and in a visitor’s space. Lisette helped us to practice the exercises so we could work on our own with confidence. Before leaving she verbally went over the exercises and sent videos for us to watch just in case we need to refresh ourselves on the steps. She made certain we had both her and Derek’s cell numbers, and reassured us that we could call or text with questions anytime and they would come back before the next lesson if we needed help. She made suggestions and provided a websites for items that would help our boy. The house was calmer and quieter the very first day! Our walk was easier and fun for us all as he was able to relax and begin to ignore the barking small dogs, and other people and dogs walking. Lisette is a great teacher and understands what the dogs needs as well as the humans with significant results after the first lesson!

I have a yappy Pomeranian. Anything and everything she will bark at. There was no method I used that could make her stop. That was until Lissette came to my home on a Tuesday night. In a matter of 2 hours she was able to to sit, stay, walk on a leash properly and stop barking without giving her any treats. I didn’t think it was possible for my dog not to do anything without treats but she sure did. Every day we train and we can go for walks without the whole world knowing we are out walking. Her barking at home is down to a minimum, which I’m sure my neighbor appreciates. She doesn’t charge at the door when I leave or come home. I can sleep at night since she’s not barking at every sound. She will sit and stay on command and I don’t have to scream for her to do it. I FaceTimed my mom and sister because they didn’t believe a dog can change so much in such little time. They were convinced my dog was switched out for a new one because the change was just that noticeable. Today is Saturday so that means she’s been in training for 5 days. Lissette has made such a huge impact in our lives. Thank you! More...

Before signing on with bark busters I read these rave reviews and was skeptical, primarily because my husband and I never had good experience with dog trainers. We only knew the click, treat, repeat type of training which was simply superficial and limited.

We hired bark busters--Derek came to our house the beginning of February and gave us real tools that work. Our older aggressive dog is responding to the techniques we learned and our new puppy is learning to behave. Specifically we have taught them to walk on leash without the pulling, to stop rushing to door, to come when called--not just when we have food in our hands.

If you work the program you will get results.

WOW we had a situation where we took in an aggressive fear biter. We did not know that he was this bad. BUT luckily for us Bark Busters helped us immensely. We were walking on eggshells due to his aggression and not knowing what would trigger his biting. After one session with Lisette we have the situation well under control. It is slow going and he did not develop this behavior overnight but in a week with doing the exercises and staying consistent we have seen a huge change in Zorro. He is listening better and he has only growled at me once. Thanks to Lisette and Bark Busters we feel that Zorro is on his way to being a well adjusted dog who will be able to be adopted out.

Last year I went to a different, highly reputable vet in the neighborhood and had such a horrible experience that I was left reeling. I was then recommended to try Urban Vet Care. My amputee dog is my child, and after last year's exam I was more nervous for the vet than she is! But the second I walked into Urban Vet, I knew I'd have a different experience. Everybody was so friendly and professional. I felt like I was in very capable hands. Sure, they are a *little* pricier than other places...but like I said, my dog is my child and I want to ensure she has the best care possible especially given her condition.

I originally visited this clinic because it's the closest to me. If I were to move farther away, I would still take my pet here. About the place: clean and hospitality is wonderful. About the folks: they really care about your pet's wellbeing, they're personable, & won't try to push products/med purchases on you.I was even there for my cat during a storm - lights went out due to weather. Nonetheless, the circumstances didn't phase them or their ability. Urban Vet was dedicated to treating my cat so they used natural lighting & flashlights going above and beyond to help my cat.Folks like these give you a sense of place and community. Their actions show they are more than ready to help to their full ability and they are passionate about their mission for our pets.

After speaking with Emma on the phone I felt a sense of relief that something could be done! At our first session with Emma I could already see a massive difference in Kodah - Two weeks on and Kodah has come so far with her behaviours and almost everyone who’s met Kodah comments on how well She is doing! Its honestly been the best thing for both Kodah and I! I have my confidence back and Kodah is growing into a very happy, healthy, respectful, loving member of our family � Can not recommend Emma enough! She is an amazing trainer! More...

We had our first session with Emma as it is our first time having a beautiful groodle pup. We learned so much and Emma is amazing with Benji and also with my kids. She gave us tools to deal with our puppy biting and jumping. Benji is responding really well and is a different puppy already. We are looking forward to train Benji all the good habits. So glad we have Emma to help us. More...

Investing my time and money into Bark Busters with Emma has been the best thing for my dog Coco and I! I have a very anxious Shar Pei x with some bad behaviours and Emma has been a wonderful resource for us. I struggled daily with the power struggle between coco and I, walking, barking, approaching other dogs, jumping up at visitors, etc. There were times before I met Emma that I ‘gave up’ and accepted I had a ratbag of a dog! She is extremely approachable, non judgemental and realistic about timeframes etc. Emma is also very flexible with fitting Coco and I in, which I value. I have found that not only has Coco’s behaviours improved in a short period of time and minimal visits, but my own confidence towards her behaviours with Emma’s encouragement. Thankyou so much Emma.

We were very impressed on how experienced John is. He guided us every step of the way with patience until we fully understood each exercise. He helped us understand how to better communicate with our dogs in order to have a healthy living and coexistence with our canine family members. More...

I reached out to Michelle feeling a bit hopeless about one of my dogs as he has shown aggression quite a bit and I felt as though I was losing control and would eventually lose my dog for good. Michelle came to my home and spent so much time with my husband and I as well as our "dog in need" and his housemates, she gave us many useful tips that have already made such a difference! She enlightened us on the what to do's and what not to do's which all made so much sense and cleared up a lot for me personally as a dog owner. Michelle has since followed up both by phone and sending additional info via e mail that will be helpful to us. I highly recommend her to anyone having any animal issues as now I feel that my dog has a bright positive future and nothing could make me happier!! Thanks Michelle!! More...

Emma from Bark Busters has made a huge difference to our lives. Our 15 month old German Shepherd Casey barked constantly at night and was a nightmare on the lead. Thanks to Emma, we can sleep at night and I no longer have my arm being pulled off whilst walking her. More...

We've worked with Jeanie for years and she has been so good to us.  Our chihuahua now respects boundaries and behaves exceptionally well - even in an environment with many other dogs around.  Jeanie has been patient and kind with us and with our dog, particularly as the dog has had to get used to a child in the home.  We would recommend Jeanie to anyone with a dog, and you won't regret it.

It has been less than a week and the results are nothing short of amazing. Brodie my 1 year old French Bulldog no longer 'terrorizes' my wife (when he is so excited to see her when she comes home from work.) It is now pleasant to walk Brodie. I am able to control him when someone knocks on the front door. He is by no means completely trained but he is well on his way. My wife and I will have to continue to work with him regularly to maintain and enhance his progress. I feel confident if we follow through with consistent practice and reinforcement he will be 'completely trained'. More...

Could not recommend Bark Busters and the trainer Emma enough! We have just had our second training session and had such a wonderful experience. Chewie improves more and more everyday with his training and I am so thankful � We are his second owners and being a three year old lab with little training he was getting quite a handful to take on walks as he would not respond to us at all with all the distractions around. Now, on only his second session, he is listening following instructions like a pro and its all thanks to Emma's knowledge and guidance � More...

John is the best trainer out there, worth every cent!! From the minute he walks in to our home, he restores order with our 2 puppies, Stella & Maple. He takes his time & explains the steps needed for us to achieve our goals with them in the best way possible for us and for our puppies. The puppies respond so well to him and our family enjoys all that he teaches us. Great person overall and highly recommend him to all of our friends and family with dogs. More...

I used Bark Busters and it's the best thing I've done.....I've had 2 sessions with Emma and Shae is already a completely different dog �� Shae was a rescue dog and 13 months old with little to no training and in two weeks she is trusting me now and absolutely loves being able to relax in her new home with rules to follow and with a confident owner �� Thank you very much to Emma for training me to be able to train Shae as I needed the training more than Shae did � Well worth the investment �

Wow! What a change! As soon as Ryan came in and sat down with us, he got to experience our unruly pup going crazy and whining uncontrollable in her crate. She was banging on the side trying to get to him. He invited her out and she immediately jumped up and started the biting we had been telling him about. Within seconds of him demonstrating the methods he was about to teach us, the dog was sitting and looking at him respectfully for guidance. Realizing she wasn't the alpha in the room anymore changed everything about her demeanor. We hadn't let this dog around our kids in the months we've had her because of her biting. But that night after the first consultation, my teenager went into the kitchen where she was, and she simply lifted her head, looked at him and then laid back down. We have more work to do to train ourselves to consistently use these methods, but our dog has a whole new lease on life and I've never seen her happier! Thanks Ryan! More...

I have an awesome pit mix rescue who I adopted at 10 weeks old, and at around 8 months old he developed leash aggression. He's now a little over a year old, and he got kicked out of doggy daycare for aggression. I looked at K9, but did not want to do e-collar training as I heard it makes aggression worse. Jeanie at Bark Busters is great! Bark Busters uses positive reinforcement (praise) and correction (a growl or a noise leash), and the results are immediate. They also teach passive leadership, which is where you assert communicate in dog so they feel safe and protected (and respect you.) Jeanie has stuffed dogs to help dogs with leash aggression, and I won't describe the process in detail but it works! You pay one price and then get as many lessons as you want or need, for life. I'll update this review a I keep working with my dog on training - after the first meeting I'm very satisfied! More...

Jim is Awesome. My husband and I were amazed that in just 30 minutes our 3 1/2 month old puppy Bella Mae was not jumping on the couch, jumping on us, and obeying the stay command until we called her to come. It gives us reassurance that Jim will always be available if any issue comes up with Bella in the future. We especially loved that the training is safe and very effective without treats or shock collars. We now can continue to enjoy Bella's puppy years without frustration! Thanks Jim More...

Ryan is amazing! We are so glad we found him. After the introductory session our Tinker is a whole new girl! From overly protective, obnoxious barker at the door, to well mannered, obedient, loving pet when visitors now come, all by simply changing our leadership behaviors. This all happened in mere seconds after our first session with Ryan. We can’t wait for our future sessions and continuing to evolve our Aussie into the perfect pet, and my wife and I into perfect dog owners! More...

John is very helpful with following the behavioral techniques/skills from bark busters. He took the time to show each technique and had me copy it until I understood. We would practice each technique until my dog understood what we were correcting him on. Learning these skills has made a much more peaceful household ( less barking, no leash pulling, responsive to my calls, and attentive). Taking the stress off my dog - thinking he had to protect me and guard the door and be super aware all the time has made him a much happier dog. Now I can take him out and not worry. Nice to have a well educated, kind trainer in my contacts whenever I need some help ! More...

Joanne has been very instrumental in managing and training our new adopted dog. As a trainer Joanne is very professional, knowledgeable and a good teacher. After just a few sessions she has addressed and help resolve almost all issues and challenges we had with our dog. Joanne is training the owners in a way which is easy to implement. Lastly, our dog is totally at ease and obeys Joanne immediately. We highly recommend Joanne for all your dog training needs! More...

I wish I could give Bark Busters 10 stars! We just had our 2nd session with Emma this week and I'm still blown away at how awesome my dogs are. They were so good in fact that we didn't even need the 2nd session � We've tried different dog trainers in the past and have never had these kind of results. I was hesitant with the cost at first but adding up how much I've spent on training in the past, it's completely reasonable and we now have Emma for the life of the dogs! My favourite part is not only the instant results but that the training is not treat based so no longer do my dogs only listen if I have treats on me. I just can't stop raving about Bark Busters to my friends and family!! More...

Jeanie at Bark Busters is wonderful!  I'm very pleased with her dog training services and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to correct behavioral issues with their dogs.Jeanie starts off with a phone consultation where you discuss in detail the issues you're having with your dog.  She asks detailed questions and makes sure she understands your concerns and what you're looking to get of of training.  She'll then schedule an appointment to come to your home for a one-hour training session.  She'll sit down with you and your dog, re-visit the issues you've discussed and your training goals and then will demonstrate how to correct your dog's behavior.  Additional visits will be scheduled from there depending on the severity of your dog's issues.  However, she's makes herself accessible via phone and email regarding any questions or concerns you have, which I think is fantastic.  I've always been able to reach her and she's been quickly responsive.Jeanie was wonderful with my dog during our training sessions.  My dog is shy and skittish around strangers but immediately liked Jeanie, which I think says a lot about her.  She brings training aids, collars and leashes with her to help during the sessions and you have the ability to purchase them, if they work for you, or she can recommend where to purchase similar items.  (Note: Bark Busters doesn't push their products but I like that they make them available for purchase if you'd rather purchase them then-and-there).  The explanations of her training techniques were clear and detailed.  She was incredibly patient with both me and my dog.  She also leaves handouts and reading materials for future reference.Jeanie was a pleasure to work with.  She was warm, friendly and professional and is clearly a lover of dogs and what she does.  Two thumbs (and paws!) up!

So far we’ve only had 1 session but I see a pretty significant difference after a day! I have to review my materials tonight so that I do things the right way. There’s a lot of info to take in. Joann was very professional and I really appreciated her input. It was so nice to get reassurance about things we were doing well. This pup of mine is super smart, so I am glad we invested in proper training. Twelve years is a long time to have an animal that drives you nuts! More...

I first met Michelle back in 2008. I had just gotten a new puppy and wanted this new puppy to be a part of our family and I knew he needed training. She came to the house one evening and taught everyone how to train him, correct him if need be. She was very polite, knowledgeable, and had a vested interest in how the new puppy became a family member. Needless to say I get many compliments on how we'll behaved my dog is. He can be off leash when we are in the front yard and he does not go running off. Michelle came out to teach us methods to introduce the new baby to Rocco before he baby was born. Those methods worked seamlessly, he quickly became acclimated to the baby and soon became his shadow. I would recommend Michelle and Bark busters to anyone. It is well worth the investment. More...

Joanne came today to help me with my pointer mix, Allie. Allie is a very strong dog. She loves to pull especially when she would spot another animal. Allie has pulled me down on the ground & would escape her collar & lease to get to other dogs. It created such a problem in our neighborhood. In just one day, Joanne trained me to handle my girl. I've been out with her several times today. Wow!! What a difference. I would highly recommend Joanne to come to your home & help you learn how to handle any issues that you may have with your dog. It definitely will make all the difference in the world. � More...

If you are looking for a dog trainer look no further. I have a small "yappy" chihuahua that pees all over my house. Within the first 5 minutes Luis proved his worth. My dog is 7 years old and with two young kids I was at my wits end. We have tried everything. We tried choke collars, bark collars, containing him within a small space, keeping him confined, you name it! Luis has restored my hope for a peaceful and co-existing family. We are so thankful for our visit and look forward to using Luis as our liaison forever. More...
