Bonnie is the real deal! We had tried other training techniques with our 3 year old rescued Dachshund and were struggling to get our desired results. He had major separation anxiety and was always barking. We found Bark Busters and couldn't be any more thrilled. By the point we were 30 minutes into the lesson, I knew she was AMAZING! She is the trainer we had been looking for. The best part is she actually trained us on how to train our dog, so we are seeing the same results as when she was here. Thank you Bonnie for saving our family with Skeller, and restoring harmony in our home. Highly recommend!

Thank you Kelly, Ben & Skeller - It was great working with you and Skellar is a love! I couldn't be more pleased with your results! He is now happier back in the pack behind his fearless leaders! Keep up the exceptional work - call me anytime with any questions at all!

We just had our first lesson with Bonnie today, and we are very impressed and grateful. Our dog has already responded well to Bonnie's very clear and specific directions for us. Bonnie clearly has a great understanding of the pack dynamics at work and was able to hone in on why the behaviors were present and what corrections are needed. It is so nice to see my dog calm and relaxed.

Nothing makes me happier than to see a dog like Phoebe and her owners happy and relaxed after a productive training session - thank you for letting me be a part of it!

I cant say enough wonderful things about Bonnie and Bark Busters. I was ready to throw in the towel with my out of control Lab mix. He was a terror on leash, pulled so hard it was impossible to enjoy a walk with him. He jumps on guest at the front door and will steal food right offer the counter. He barks and just always seems stressed.After our initial lesson with Bonnie, Its like someone replace my out of control, crazy dog with a relaxed, calm and happy one. I wouldnt have believe this to be possible without having witnessing this first hand. Bonnie is patience, knowledgeable and really understands why dogs behave the way they do. I know its my job to keep it going and practice, although I already feel amazed and hopeful. Thank you Bonnie!

I cannot recommend Bonnie Ober highly enough, I love her! I wish I had called Bark Busters a LONG time ago. I had Blue for well over a year and went through a couple of trainers and was still not making any headway. I was told and understood all the "rules" but it was way too overwhelming and exhausting and just didn't work for me and Blue. Bonnie spent just a short time with us and quickly got to the root of what was happening and what needed to be done. She broke it down very easily and we had a quick and simple routine we could manage. When I contacted her with updates, she would cheer us on and help us fine tune areas we were still having trouble with. I will be forever grateful to her for all of her help. She explained the entire process and was extremely patient. I am SOOOO GLAD I did this; it is the best money you'll ever spend! She was born for this job and we are all so lucky to have found her!!!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Bark Busters is the only company to offer a life of the dog support guarantee! We charge an initial fee and then come out without additional cost when you need us; life changing events such as new baby, going back to work after COVID, etc. Peace of mind that ALL of your canine family members' issues are addressed!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Bark Busters can help anyone! We have helped the elderly and those with disabilities. We have helped clients on walkers or wheelchairs be able to walk their dogs. We have extensive training with blind and deaf dogs too!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    It is very important to ask what types of training methods the trainer will use. If they say "E collars" that is electric collar which is a shock collar. This is a negative and painful form of training which many countries have banned. Also, be careful with treat training. You want to be able to control your dog in real life situations and you won't always have a treat with you when you most need it!
