If you are looking for a simpleton trainer with a clicker and a smile then this is not your trainer. If you are looking for a real trainer with real results, this is the place to go. I have been working with Butch Cappel at his training facility for a few years now. I was originally just looking for some obedience training for a dog with endless energy. Not only did I get excellent results from his training techniques, but I soon learned that Butch has a whole lot more to offer. Protection training, Tracking, Search & Rescue, Drug detection, Agility, Advanced obedience, Conformation showing... etc. etc. If a dog can be used to perform the task, Butch can teach you and your dog how to do it. I have also adopted a pure bred American Bulldog from Butch's facility. He is now a Dual Champion conformation show dog. I have also competed and titled him in several working venues. http://www.bubbacus.com/accomplishments.html I can't say enough good things about Butch and his training programs. I highly recommend him.

Maury is extremely knowledgable when it comes to dog training. Not just a dog sitter! Give him a few minutes and ask about your dog's well-being. You will not be disappointed!

Howard is an excellent dog trainer! His extensive knowledge and expertise in training dogs is very evident. Learning the "Alpha" way definitely helped me reevaluate how I interacted with my dogs and that there were some things I was doing that was contributing to their bad behavior. Howard is not just training your dog, he is really training owners on how to communicate effectively with their dogs. By giving us the power to train, we are able to continue to effectively maintain and extend the correct dog and Alpha communication. And even apply it to new pets! I would definitely recommend dog owners see Howard for training their pets!

I found Nancy online almost a year ago, and found myself having a hard time figuring out what dog training classes I needed for my dog Bowinkle. We had just adopted Bowinkle and he was about 6 months old and into everything and HORRIBLE at walking on a leash. When I called and spoke to Nancy I immediately felt I had made the right choice in calling her first. I didn't want to have to take Bowinkle to a class group setting and not get one-on-one attention and struggle with Bowinkle being to "interested" in the other dogs. The fact that Nancy does all visits at our house and offers many different types of service plans was a huge plus. I had no clue what we were getting into and how long we may or may not need her. We decided to sign up for a year; since then she has come every 2-3 weeks. What I like most about Bark Busters is we as dog owners are learning the correct way to train our dog(s) and become their Pack Leader. I can have as many dogs as I want from here on out and know that I can train/lead them on my own, and if I have a hard time I can call Nancy and she'll be here to assist. Nancy is a very professional and respectful person whom my pets, and myself have grown to love. I recommend her to everyone who is interested in dog training. I thought my Bowinkle was never going to grow out of his old habits and today I have a completely different dog. Thank you so much Nancy for your help, care and knowledge. Thanks, Krystin Scott

Wanda learns the owners strengths and the dogs needs on the 1st lesson. She will provide you with different techniques that meet both of your needs. Wanda goes the extra mile to have a different technique/lesson each class to keep the dog on the learning path. She will give you training milestones throughout the different stages of your dogs life.

We've only had a couple of sessions with Stephanie and our two French Bulldogs but we already know she was a great choice for our dog training needs. First of all - she loves what she does and it shows in her work. Stephanie is also very responsive to the behaviors that we want to change in our dogs, and is able to make the training fun. Additionally, my wife and I have busy schedules, and Stephanie is very flexible to finding training times that work for us. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone considering training for their dogs.

Over the last year, I have been fortunate to have Hilton Butler from K-9 Bootcamp train my puppy so he could become a therapy dog. From the first encounter with the Butler family I knew my dog would be in good hands. They understood the purpose of his training and knew what he would have to learn in order to become a therapy dog for kids with special needs. I was greatly relieved to know that my dog would be staying in their house with their children. This meant a lot to me since my dog spent 6 weeks being trained. To know that he would not be neglected in a kennel on a large property was a huge relief. Auggie was immediately welcomed by all family members and was treated like one of their own pets. He was in loving hands from the moment he walked in the door. I felt that Hilton was able to apply various protocols to meet my dog’s needs due to his extensive background with K-9 training in the military, police, and service dog environments. Hilton demonstrates a firm hand while training, but uses positive reinforcement as well, which was needed for my dog. He ensures that you know the protocols to carry over in the home environment after training is complete. If there was any question regarding Auggie’s behaviors at home, Hilton was available by email, phone, and even conducted follow up sessions at my house. K-9 Boot Camp is a professional and loving dog training facility. They excel in providing individual treatment to meet your specific training goals. Customer service and compassion for their work shines through. Hilton, took time on a Sunday in November to drive all the way to Auggie’s therapy test for moral support. Auggie passed with flying colors and now comes to work everyday as a certified therapy dog. He is happy in his new role making sure all kids have a smile on their face while receiving therapy! We could not have done it with out Hilton.

Comfort Crew provides great care for our dogs! We've used them during extended vacations and also for occasional single afternoon visits. Belinda and Daniel go above and beyond! They always spend a lot of time playing with the pups and showing them love so that they don't feel lonely. They've even stayed extra time to keep the pups company during scary thunderstorms! Every time we travel, we call Comfort Crew. The email updates after each visit keep us updated during our travels. It's great peace of mind having them take care of our fur babies!

Karen has been taking care of my three cats and one dog for years. She is better than outstanding - lets my cats out to play in the backyard where they can't escape and then returns to let them back in. She brushes them, feeds them, takes care of the litter box. My sweet dog is a special needs dog; Karen loves Cali and takes extra special care of her. Karen is my neighbor and often just comes over and takes Cali for a walk or just checks on the animals even when I am in town. Does Karen go above and beyond? Absolutely! Karen couldn't do better as she is already the best!

Our Family took Toby for training with Lisa, she is really good with the pets and taught us a lot, Toby learned quick the different commands. The whole family went to the trainings and Lisa was always giving us tips and giving us advice. Would highly recommend Lisa. Everytime we went to the training Toby will get so excited and would rush to the training room so I guess he really enjoyed it and like Lisa.
