Jim and Dee are amazing! Great communication and professionalism. When Jim entered our home we knew immediately Callie was going to be a very different puppy after Jim left. We were not disappointed. The techniques he used were very easy for us to follow. Thank you very much for helping us train our forever puppy.
Dee & Jim both have been really helpful. We have two Golden Retrievers that are almost 5 months old. The first visit with Jim went great! We have already seen improvement can not wait to learn more.
Great training for me and my dog
It has been a little over a week since Jim came to our house. I’m very happy with his first visit. In very little time he had shown me how to help my dogs behave better when people come over. After my pups & I have worked on the first issue for awhile I will contact Dee & Jim to set up another visit.
Dee responded very quickly to my inquiry. I set up an appointment for the following Saturday. We have 3 dogs, 2 of which are rescues. We had some behavior issues - the dogs barking and jumping on guests at the front door, training them to use the dog door, and our latest rescue getting into a barking frenzy & not listening. Jim showed up on time and explained their program. We liked that it was based on dog behavior and positive reinforcement! Jim & Dee have years of experience with rescue & foster dogs so Jim knew how to help us with our rescues. Jim worked with us correcting what we were doing wrong and the dogs responded quickly!! It's all about the humans learning to teach in a way that dogs understand, doing it consistently, and praising profusely when they do it right. Or as Jim says "having a party!" We have been working with our dogs and seen a tremendous amount of progress in a short time!! We were amazed! However, I was still having an issue with our female rescue trying to be the leader over me while she would listen to my husband. Remembering things Jim had said I knew the problem was with me and that I needed more training. Jim came again and worked with me for over an hour. He had me lower my voice when correcting her and to calmly show her what to do. Jim and I also discovered she doesn't respond to verbal praise - she needs to be held in my lap and have a lot of physical 'praise' along with the verbal. It was Jim listening to me and asking questions that led to that discovery! It has made such a difference in the way she listens to me!! We are so happy to have found Jim & Dee of Bark Busters! The Bark Busters program is extremely effective and Jim is an excellent trainer of both dogs & humans!!
Very knowledgeable & pleasant!
Your information helped give me the guidance I need to be proactive and to prepare our family & animals for a healthy & happy life.
Simple, but very effective techniques. Really liked how Jim educated us on how to "speak" Trixter's language. I feel very confident that I can practice on my own.
Thank you Jim for making it seem easy and like we can learn to do this on our own. Thank you also for being so sweet to Dusty & Deano. We appreciate you help!
Very knowledgeable. Love the information provided. Happy with the training plan.
Very helpful training on techniques we never used before. Immediate results.
Jim was amazing! We feel like we have the tools to be successful! Our dog, Valkyrie, responded nearly immediately. Thank you!
Mr. Jim explained techniques in a way that made it easy and fun to learn for us and our dogs. The reference material he shared is helpful for future research and he answered all our questions. I personally appreciated his patience and level of concern for our dogs well being. We're grateful to have found him.
Great Trainer. Very Helpful. I am excited to see Rocky & his progress with Bark Busters.
I needed new ways to work with a dog who is developing anxiety and Bark Busters had great suggestions that are already making an impact.
The trainer was professional and kind. I learned a lot! I am very pleased with the experience.
Friendly, easy to understand, customized for our dogs. They showed progress already. Was very informative.
Great Session! Can't wait to continue reinforcing and seeing results.
We think what we learned today will definitely help us and we look forward to working with Jim.
Great start. Lots of work to do!
Great company that really cares about each dog & making it specific for what they need.
Really appreciate your help! We now have a plan to begin changing Jack.
Seems very productive for first appointment. Got a lot done.
On our first lesson we could already see that both dogs were responding well to the suggestions. Love that the training is in home and in our puppies environment. Looking forward to future sessions.
Great and thorough training!
Miraculous first session! Marked improvement in his behavior. I would highly recommend Bark Busters for any of your dog's behavioral issues. I look forward to incorporating the lessons I've learned to assist my dog in becoming more balanced and happy.
Impressed with how quickly dogs responded to initial training. I feel great having techniques that I feel confident will work. Jim is very helpful and a pleasure to work with.
Jim took the time to explain everything. Showed us great techniques that will work great with Maggie & even the other dog in our home.
Jim was very knowledgeable. He was easy to understand. He made things "easy". I felt very comfortable with everything.
Jim is professional and very talented when working with us and our dog. He encouraged us to be consistent with our family rules and enjoy our new puppy. Our dog really enjoyed playing with Jim. This was a very helpful and thourgh first lesson. We all had fun!
Jim, our trainer, was very good at explaining & showing us training tips. Bark Busters program is unlike any training program we are aware of. We are excited to go through the program.
We had a great time learning from Jim. We look forward to learning more as Miss Ellie Matures.
Our dogs were displaying excessive barking and pushy behaviors. They had not responded to anything we had done but with the first training exercise they were responding to us.
Our puppy responded well to the techniques and we could see a difference in our dog's behavior after the first session.

We had great success with Rainy Boots and Duke today. Made me happy and excited to train my dogs. I feel like I have the right tools to do so.

Very helpful session. enough to get us started and not too overwhelming.
We feel very confident that we can be property trained to help our dogs behave!

Very happy with the results of the training.
Excellent Trainer, very patient, worked with the entire family- dealt with our Toddlers being Toddlers. Showed simple, easy to use techniques and gave very clear instructions. Checked for understanding with feedback.
Excellent start to correcting Barney's problems.
Ours dogs responded very well in the first session. Looking forward to working with Jim on future issues.
Appreciate the company working us in quickly so that the behavior could be stopped as soon as possible. Very professional instructor with very clear instructions. This really helped us feel confident about how to move forward to prevent our "Girls" fusses.
Excellent techniques and practice. Dog are already responding and further practice should train them quickly.
We were pleased to see Geoffrey respond to some of the exercises on our first night. It gives us hope that he can become a good boy!
Jim did an amazing job! He explained thoroughly! This training exceeded our expectations.
Very detailed instructions, we would recommend Bark Busters. We saw improvement right away.

Wished I had used this with my first dog, when she was a puppy!

We like not using physical techniques. Great way of teaching the owners and the dog.
I would recommend Bark Busters because it is a non-violent natural method
Very good at listening and addressing Sasha's needs.
I found it to be very helpful. Both my pets responded according with the exception of my Pit Bull Honey, however, it was a rainy day and we really couldn't get much done with the distance recall. I am trying every day to work with her on that, however, she seems hell bent on getting out of the back yard every chance she gets and only seems to notice us if we are acting like crazy people, getting super excited about her and then maybe she'll get distracted enough to head our way. We just have a lot going on outside that gets her excited. I know with consistency this will get better. As for Demon, he had a wonderful lesson and I was very proud of him. He caught on to what I asked him to do in just a couple of times. Jim was very patient and kind and encouraging both to myself and Honey and Demon. I highly recommend anyone having behavioral issues with their pets to contact these fine people. It is obvious they have a strong love for animals and show compassion while teaching as well as patience. I appreciate all of that and look forward to our next lesson. Thank you Jim for being awesome. :)
Explained well, saw immediate results, excellent natural training method, we highly recommend
Training was explained, I saw noticeable results, natural methods were used, I would recommend, it was clearly explained and demonstrated on how to address Kiko's behavior.
Harley caught on fast and we already see improvements. The training was very informative and went by quickly. We recommend Bark Busters. Good training that was easy to follow & didn't involve treats.
Enjoyable experience: very much so. I had no idea that we could train w/o treats or spanking.
Noticed remarkable response. It is a different way to train than I am used to, but excellent. Great experience for owner and dog. My dog is barking less, not running a garage door, not pulling when walking, not bullying Max (other dog).
Easy to follow, no harmful discipline, love that they come to the house where the behaviors actually occur.
Very easy to follow. We noticed imediate improvement. Very natural and easy. We recommend because it's very easy and noticed immediate improvemets.
Marked improvement with a stranger (therapist) in the house.
Quick & Effective
We saw immediate changes in our dogs behavior.
Gracie responded and behaved on walk. No stress.
Clear & concise; responding quicker. The session brought a lot of options to control our dog that we never considered. Would recommend, very helpful and easy to administer. Great session! Glad we called Bark Busters over other competitors.
I really enjoyed the education & Jim's personality. I would recommend Bark Busters because of Jim's knowledge and personality.
Bark Busters is practical yet successful. I highly recommend the program.
I see the training technique is going to work when other methods have not. I could tell the difference before Jim left.
Explained simple steps, easy to understand & very patient. We noticed results and were pleased with the training. Very interesting & enjoyable. Very simple process to learn and appears to really work. Jim was very pleasant & extremely knowledgeable. Enjoyed the training and see results already.
Very patient & flexible especially with dog's inaction.
He was so much calmer by the end of the first lesson. Enjoyed not relying on treats. It is simple and effective. Easy to follow instructions.
Very easy to follow and not difficult to put into practice. Definite noticeable progress with Oliver. Very enjoyable training experience. Great technique. Thank you for coming to our home to train.
It was simple, straight forward and easy to understand. Results were encouraging.

We got to learn by doing and when it's fun, we're encouraged to keep doing them without giving up in frustration. Everything was simple, straightforward and accessible, so that anyone could learn and enjoy the experience of training their dogs.
