I waited over a year to provide this feedback because our issue was not with the trainer himself, and we wanted to see if the training techniques would work for us over time. While the trainer was professional, this training system has just not worked for our dog. When...

I am really appalled at the comments I have read here in response to these poor dog owners & their very less than stellar experience with this company. Their review seems very...

That complaint is far too long to read in its entirety. Perhaps your dog has psychological issues and is what we call "untrainable". Dog trainers are just that, trainers, not ...

Note: This is long because there's a lot to share about our experiences over approximately 5 or 6 months.. I've seen lots of comments on other reviews that "they're too long." If your attention span is that little, consider the title the TL;DR and don't bother. We...

Unfortunately, I had the SAME EXACT EXPERIENCE! I paid $540 for some literature, dog pillows and to learn the word Bah!

I got a 4 month old German Shepard and she was biting me and the kids. I found Bark Busters online and Diane agreed to come to my house. She spent an hour or so there giving me and my daughter commands to train her with. She said to shout "BAH" and clap our hands...

Needless to say this was a painful $600 financial lesson. We were desperate for a solution, and fell for the bait. Never made it past the first visit. Our trainer was borderline deaf, which threw us right from the start. 3 hours that consisted of maybe 1/2 hour of...

Hi. At Bark Busters, we want to come to a satisfactory conclusion for all our customers. I will get with the trainer to see what can be done.

I completely agree! I also got a long lecture on nutrition and a raw diet. One of my dogs is on prescription food for weight loss and joint issues. The trainer wanted to see t...

My dog had issues with aggression toward other dogs, people and cars. I paid the trainer $900. She only came twice. On the second visit, the methods she had me use only made the dog afraid of me. I believe the trust bond between the dog and me ended up being broken. I...

11/2 hrs just talking about how to address issues and to be “the alpha”. My main issue was walking my dog around other dogs. I had to remind trainer that was my main concern and only then did we actually go outside for a short walk. Seemed afraid of dog the entire time...

Guy from Bark Buster's came to our home to help us with our rescue dog. All he did was berate me, threw some bags down at the dog and taught us to basically yell at the dog. Took our money. Never heard from him again. Good Riddance. I can't even honestly give 1/2 a...

I have a Shepherd that is very strong willed (and very strong) and walking her had become a problem when we walked past another dog- she would go crazy. The trainer spent 2 hours the first day . Then I had to call for help. He was here an hour and a half. He wanted me...
