Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
We had our first lesson today. Sharon was great with our dog and with us as the owners. She demonstrated how to work with our dog and then had us do the training exercises. She gave us feedback on how to do them which was very helpful. I would highly recommend BarkBusters and in particular, Sharon.Jul 1, 2018Verified
I have only had one lesson so far but already my dog has shown major improvement. Sharon worked with my dog wonderfully, she was attentive to his anxiety around people and by the end of the lesson he was in her lap giving kisses. When I ask for an appointment they are scheduled quickly and always within a few days. In between lessons I text her any questions I have and she always responds quickly. I am very happy with the training we are receiving! Would highly recommend.Apr 19, 2018Verified
Sharon is amazing. We have 1 dog that was terrifed of everyone when she came by the end of the first visit Brutus was running happy and free thru the house with no worries of the new guest in our home. We also have 2 females that havent been in the same room as each other for over a year due to fighting but the first training with them i took them for a walk together. It was a amazing moment we never thought we could get back. She taught us to learn their language and become the leader so they dont have to worry and fight for the top spot. She has done so much for our family! Thanks Sharon!Dec 19, 2018Review from Google
Wow!!!!! All my 43 years of loving and living with dogs I actually felt guilty today for my past concepts of training my furry family! Thank you for the education and knowledge!Oct 26, 2018Review from GoogleBark Busters In Home Dog Training's reply
Rachel, thanks for the opportunity to help you learn to think like a dog. It took Bark Busters years of scientific research to learn how dogs really communicate & interpret the world and their owners. All our customers wish they’d had the benefit of the Bark Busters methodology with their previous dogs: a faster, more gentle way to train what NOT to do as well as what to do.
If I could give Sharon more stars I would!! She is the real deal!! I read so many reviews and was so skeptical about such quick transformation but is happened. She helped me so much with my energetic 8 month old yellow lab, evening including my 4 year old daughter in the training. My wallet is also extremely thankful for her knowledge of dog chews. I had spent so much money on chews that my girl destroyed in minutes and Sharon pointed me right direction. Thank you!Nov 26, 2018Review from Google
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?You should expect to get immediate improvement in your dog’s behavior & guaranteed support as needed should your dog’s behavior revert or change even if your objectives change.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Because I’m recommend by so many veterinary offices, I stay fairly booked. My office assistant typically reaches out to answer new inquiries & schedules initial appointments for me to meet customers & their dogs at their home, where dogs learn best. Home is also where most dog behavioral issues are rooted. Once I arrive, I do an interview of my customers goals. Within 2-2.5hours on the fist session, most people are relieved about the the transformation in their dog’s behavior to align with their goals. I ensure my customers can easily repeat the dog-friendly regiment that I’ve laid out to help their dogs feel more relaxed, more cooperative & more respectful of their owners. Each customer then gets unlimited follow up help as needed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Extensive & recurring training over 12 years from the Bark Busters, the worlds experts in dog behavior dog.
