I have a small 9 year old dog and had the pleasure of having Brian Sugerman help me understand her behavior as she has gotten older. Brian is soothing, gentle and very professional. We started in March of 2015 and had Brian work with our baby for six weeks. Brian perfomed training at our home and was prompt and always very pleasant.I was amazed at the technique that he used and the actual results we saw in our dog. Brian took the time to explain what clicker training is and how effective and successful it has been. Our baby had an immediate response to Brian and he was able to correct the issues that concerned us. We highly recommend Brian for your dog training.

Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!

We're so thankful to have connected with Richard (the Miami dog whisperer). Richard explains things very clearly and you get plenty of one on one time to ask questions or have him show you the lesson. They are there when ever you need them and are truly happy to help. He has a real passion for training. He is very knowledgeable, not just in training, but in dogs health and well being too. I HIGHLY recommend Richard. We have tried different dog training in the past and nothing compares to his service. Thank you

This trainer is the best. We went through his 5 week basic training class with our 9 month old Rottweiler and the results were amazing. He is patient, fun, informative and very knowledgeable about all aspects of dog training and dog health. This is a must is you just purchased a new puppy or have rescued a new dog. If you feel your dog needs some training, this is the man to come to. You will not regret it.

Very professional, saw improvement in my dogo argentino within the first few hours. Also on my all ready well behaved doberman pinscher. It was awesome how much more comfortable I feel when I am walking my dog using the techniques and the non physical reinforcement methods he taught me. Also, he took the time to thoroughly explain what to do, how to do it, and what to expect. Very highly recommended.

Judy was extremely nice and professional and gave me a lot of great pointers on training my puppy, and the training even got him to be calm walking by another dog that was pulling on his leash to get to him! She did a free consultation and didn't charge me for the time when she helped me fit my new harness on my dog. I am very pleased with my experience!

Lisa has been great and very helpful. We just had our first session with her and it was very informative. I am looking foward learning more from lisa and getting my Skylar completely house broken. One thing that sets her apart from other trainers is that LISTENED to my needs instead of trying school me about my dog. She also provide with a learning plan for Skylar targeting every i need! Thank you!

About

Robin from Bark Busters Home Dog Training came out to our house yesterday to work with us and our Golden Retriever, Randy. Randy has just turned one year old and is just nuts! He was always jumping, running to the front door when the door bell rang, barking at the front window, and still having potty issues in the house. Robin is great! First, she observed Randy's natural behavior, then explained everything that we would need to control Randy and turn him into a great dog. As it turns out, Randy was not the problem, we were! We didn't know how to tell Randy what we would like him to do. After Robin taught us our new "how to speak and act dog" information, the magic started to happen. We went to the front door, had someone ring the doorbell, and Randy stayed away until we asked him to come over and say "Hi". We learned how to keep him from going crazy at the front window. Jumping is now a thing of the past. On top of that, Robin went over a very clear and complete review of our "potty issues" with Randy and I sure that will be a thing of the past shortly. Bottom line, if you need your dog trained, get it done right and call Bark Busters!
