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 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.

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.

I will come to you. Dogs respond much better to the one-on-one in home training in my experience.

I have a competitive nature that I bring to my training, and this drives me to always strive for the best results.

With a positive personality and a love for people and pets, I give the results that I would want to receive if I were in the dog owner's place.

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

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.
