Where to begin?! Long story short, my dog Hartley is a SUPER timid and anxiety rid-in dog. Hartley is a rescue and I had no idea a dog could be that scared of EVERYTHING. It was not a problem (we honestly thought is was cute), until she finally lunged at a waitress and nipped the back of her leg. I sat there shocked and almost in tears. As we all know it could have been worse and I knew it was only going to get worse if we didn't fix this. I got online right away and looked up in home training (which I think is important in truly fixing bad behavior habits). I stumbled upon Bark Busters and they were BEYOND amazing. They answered me right away, called me to talk through what was going on, and never made me feel pressured to book with them. They just wanted to inform me and support me and Hartley. I ended up booking because they are with you for forever! They are in this for the long run and Andy does an amazing job of making you feel like this is a Team effort. He came to our house three days later and really taught me from the ground up. I feel like I literally know what my dog is thinking now and we are totally on the same page. He is so patient, understanding, and only wants the best for you and your pup! I cant say enough great things about my experience! You are a life savor Andy
Andy is a great trainer - for my dog, Taffy, and for me! We concentrated on Taffy's barking in the back yard - her barking decreased significantly after the first session; and barking and jumping at guests at the front door - again, I learned to set a perimeter and Taffy has learned to stay outside until invited in! We've now started to stop her pulling on the leash while taking a walk. It's been a great experience!
We are so lucky to have Andy guiding us through this puppy training journey! We had group puppy training class before and it didn’t work. We had to keep using treats to teach our puppy and often time that caused him upset stomach and we hate that. Andy successfully transformed our high energy, crazy barking and biting shiba monster to a calm, relaxed puppy within only 2 hours! and more importantly, using no treat! We highly recommend Bark Busters and Andy!
Andy was fantastic. Within 2 1/2 hours he achieved much more than me and 3 trainers have done over 4 years. By the time Andy left, my dog Teddy was well on his way to being a well behaved dog. It was worth every penny.
10/10! Would recommend Andy to all my friends and family. I just can't believe how much my dogs have changed after only one session! It is crazy to believe after about 2 hours my pit bull Marley who was previously very people and dog aggressive, now no longer barks and growl at other people or dogs. Walking Marley use to be embarrassing and for about a month I wouldn't even walk him past the grassy area in front of our condo buildings. I just couldn't trust Marley and feared he was going to hurt someone or someones dog. I literally can walk by any dog in my neighborhood now and Marley doesn't even pay them any mind. The story with Andy gets even better! I have a french bulldog who's name is Snookie. Snookie spent her days pacing my condo, bark, bark, bark, bark, BARKING! Anytime someone walked past the condo door, anytime a loud truck drove by, if my ringer was turned up to loud, she would bark non stop. Since Andy left, my dog has not barked once! ITS CRAZY!!! He taught me how to "speak dog." At first I thought he was joking, BUT HE WAS SERIOUS. The methods are simple and easy and I can't believe how well it works. It's almost as if Andy literally gave me two dogs that identically look the same, but act more well behaved, and took my insane ones to a far away land. Andy has truly saved my life and I don't know where I would be without him. Marley, Snookie, and I thank him from the bottom of our hearts! If you are having dog problems I am 100% confident Andy can help you fix them! Just don't forget to practice the exercises once he leaves and you will be golden!
