My experience with Deb was awesome! After the first lesson I understood why all the training methods I'd tried before had failed and was able to communicate with my dog in a way he understood immediately! I recommend Bark Busters to all my friends as well as strangers I see who seem to be frustrated with their dogs!

Amanda was really great to work with! She gave us very practical tips on how to correct our dog’s behavior and provided us with a lot of direction on how to work him outside of training sessions. She takes time with each client to understand what’s going on with the dog and recommends various tools that she thinks will specifically work for that dog. Our dog used to seriously go into attack mode anytime he saw someone he didn’t know. He had even bitten a couple of people. She helped us to understand his behaviors and *why* he was reacting to people the way that he was, and she gave us guidance on how to correct the behavior in a positive manner. He is a totally different dog. Sure, he’s still shy around strangers, but we can actually have people over without him trying to attack them and and we take him with us to friends’ houses, as well as out in public, without worrying that he’s going to attack. I would highly recommend Amanda!

We learned of Brett’s knowledge and experience with training dogs when we boarded our dog at his facility while on vacation. Our dog was a year old when we started obedience and protection training with Brett. We are totally impressed with how much our dog has learned in just the first ten weeks of training. Even others who visit our home frequently have notice the improvement in our dog’s behavior. Actually, the most difficult part has been training me, the owner!!! Our dog has caught on very quickly and Brett has been very patient trying to bring me, the owner, up to par. We look forward to working with and learning more from Brett as we continue our training. It has become very satisfying and fun and has created a better relationship between me and my dog. Thanks Brett!

Ashley is extremely devoted to her craft… She has a way of working with the animals, that takes a lot of stress away from the situation, for human and animal alike... very professional.

OK, let’s face it, Gringo, my German Shepherd, is very spoiled! He is my “baby”. The owner, Brett, says he is a “wuss”….but doesn’t hold it against him! He is pampered at home, so when we travel, I don’t like to have to feel guilty about leaving him. I like Mischievous K9 for boarding because this facility is always clean and smells good. Gringo’s personal kennel is large with a doggie door to go in and out whenever he pleases. It is air conditioned and heated so he stays comfortable whether it is summer or winter. Gringo gets plenty of food and treats and has water available at all times. Brett is a dog lover himself so I feel he enjoys spending one-on-one time with my dog every day he is there. Cleanliness, space, comfort, interaction and safety are the things I look for in a boarding facility and Mischievous K9 provides all of these and more! Brett will even post daily pictures and videos of your dog on Facebook so you can check in on him while you are away.

About

My work stands out from others because of the education I obtained at the World-renowned Triple Crown Academy in Texas. We were given the knowledge of how dogs think, work, and move, in addition to hands-on experience that was beyond compare--with two of the nations top dog trainers critiquing our every move. I couldn't have gained that kind of education in 20 years in the field. Helping people and dogs. :)
