Jennifer contacted me immediately and are meeting with her Tuesday 11/18/14. We just purchased a German Shepherd puppy and we have hired Jennifer to do puppy training. Jennifer gave me an extensive overview of her background and a few helpful hints to get us started in the interim.

We would definitely recommend Deb and Bark Busters!!!! We adopted BJ from a shelter, not knowing all the issues we would be dealing with. We chose Bark busters because we knew BJ would not do well in a group dog training class, he has an extreme fear of people and other dogs. After our first session we could see a big improvement and have continued to see it with the lessons Deb gave us to work on with him. We are looking forward to a much happier little dog.

Loved working with the K-nine coach! I am a first time dog owner and she was so patient with not just my dog, but with me as well. I was able to reach her at anytime with any question, concerns, or tips between sessions. Didn't hurt that Leeloo, my dog, loved her as well.

We boarded our dog with Brett at Mischeivous K9 in March 2013 while on a 10 day vacation. This is a very nice facility. Especially like the large indoor/outdoor kennels. Your dog has lots of room to move around and can go freely from inside to outside. Brett spent time with our dog every day. He even taught him new tricks/commands during his stay. We feel our dog is well taken care of here. Brett is caring and committed to the animals he takes care of and we feel lucky to have a place to leave our dog that we feel good about. We were so impressed to learn of Brett's knowledge and expertise in training dogs, we have since hired him for obedience and protection training.

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. 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!

About

I teach pets on obedience training, behavior modification and social boarding on a luscious 10-acre country setting.

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.
