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...Read more

- In home training
I didn't like
- Lack of training methods
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...Read more

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...Read more

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...Read more

- Life of the dog warranty
I didn't like
- No value in the cost

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...Read more

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...Read more

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...Read more
