We have a year and half old miniature poodle, Buster, that we needed help with in many areas. Kristyn has been an absolute godsend. On our daily walk a few days ago, a large pit bull got out of his yard and came charging down the street toward us. My first impression was to panic, but I heard Kristyn's voice in my ear saying, "Stand up as tall as you can and yell "Bah" as loud and deep as you can," which I did. I had a squirt bottle of water with me to help in the training and when the dog got 3-4 feet from us I yelled and squirted! He skidded to a stop. He then started toward us again and I repeated everything. He stopped, waited a few seconds, started whining, and turned around and left. So even when she's not here physically, Kristyn is still training "me."

The year is 2004. Zena was born, beautiful full-blooded German shepherd/ I brought her home at 5 weeks old, and she was developing nicely. Then around 12 weeks old, she started her behavioral issues, such as attacking, aggressiveness and dominating everything she came in contact with, even me and the family, WOW. I wanted to send her back to the GSD Farm, and they recommend other professional trainers to me, I had called them and nobody wanted to take responsibility for Zena's behavioral. I went to Florida for a week, and when I came home everyone in the house (they were standing on the couch LOL) said, "Either you get rid of this Evil Zena or we are moving!" So I came in my office and started surfing on the Internet, and studying everything out there and I found Bark Busters. No, Zena has never barked in her life and never heard her bark, so I thought, "Hmm." After reading Bark Busters' mission, I thought

After the training we had dogs that would suddenly walk on leash and not bark at the doorbell. We saw results right away. We did not want to hit our dogs to train them. This technique was not harmful to the dogs. We learned a lot about what we were doing wrong and the effects on our dogs. I was on the phone the same evening recommending Michelle and this training. My husband was skeptical but is now the biggest believer.

I am very impressed with their expertise and the results. It was better than I could have hoped for, especially with the number of dogs I have.

We have a German shepherd/sheltie mix, Kianna. She is 1½ years old. Very sweet but was definitely the alpha dog. She would bolt to and out the door, chew on everything and pull us on the leash. She had a terrible habit of stealing anything that was dropped, including the kids' homework, toys, shoes, paper, and food. After the first visit with Dale, she was a totally different dog. By the end of week #2, she became the perfect dog. She now only plays with her toys, does not chew on anything, and is a perfect lady on the leash. She has become very relaxed and submissive and is a wonderful companion to all of us. Our life used to revolve around her, and now she fits right into our lifestyle and schedule. What a difference. My husband was very skeptical at first, but now is thankful for the training and the change in Kianna. Dale was very patient and was a life saver! I recommend him to all of m friends with dogs! Thank you!

I have a two-year-old Australian sheperd who had gotten progressively worse with barking and pulling on her leash. It had gotten to the point I dreaded taking her on walks or even outside to do her business because of constant barking.

The training was truly amazing, we saw immediate results. It was very easy to follow and easy to understand. This was a great experience and excellent training for us. Our dog is a different dog. We are now able to really enjoy her.

Dale was a great teacher. I really enjoyed working with Dale. He is very personable, kind and fun. I had tears in my eyes. The results were unbelievable! We spent three times the amount over four months without any results with another trainer. We will recommend Bark Busters to anyone and everyone that owns a dog.

We were referred to Bark Buster by our vet, Dr. Marsh, and are very pleased with the results. Our puppy, Moto, is behaving much better. He even responded to the training techniques during the first session!

I couldn't believe how quickly my three Yorkies responded to the training. It is such a joy to see how eager they are to please now that I know how to teach them what I expect of them. We are all so much happier and we have only just begun. This is the best money I have spent in a very long time!
