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 learned of Bretts 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 dogs 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!
Joanne is great. My dogs adore her, and Joanne has so much patience as she teaches me to work with my dogs.
Love love love! Very good with my dog. Treats him as if he was her own and he absolutely loves her! He took right to her first day!

Hello. My name is Andrea Vargus. I am a huge pet lover! I train dogs and will also take on the aggressive dogs to mold them into family pets once again. I walk dogs while you're busy at work.

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.
