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...

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...

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...

Yes this company's training techniques are awful and entice fear. I went through a very similar experience as you with my dog and hiring this company. For people reading this,...

Update. I was able to get a hold of your Bark Busters trainer. Know that Bark Busters never advocates tying a dog to a tree without supervision. The idea of tying your dog to ...

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...

I’m a college student that works part time therefore I don’t have $700 lying around. They were willing to let me do a payment plan which I appreciate but made me write and date all of the checks in advance. I have an agressive German Shepherd Lab mix and was desperate...

I heard good things about Bark Busters so when I got my new dog and was experiencing trouble with walks and anxious behaviours, I decided try them. The trainer was nice and gave me a few tips and tools. It has been 6 months. I still cannot walk with him more than 15...

This is completely wrong. I hope you have called your credit card company and asked them to cancel the charge.

We have a 13 year old (Joe Cocker) who is moderately hearing and vision impaired. We recently lost our 8 year old Brittany to cancer and wanted another dog so we adopted 5 yr old Josie, another spaniel. She’d supposedly had some training but we became concerned when...
