I am in total awe at the way Mark and Karen brought our dogs together in only a few short hours. They are amazing!!!
I had four dachshunds, ages 14-16 1/2. I thought they were too old to train. My fiancée had a rescued puppy mill poodle, age 10. We were trying to move in together, but the dogs were a pack going after the little poodle. After only one session, we are now in control, without using bark collars or extreme measures. The dogs walk together and we are all much happier.
We will recommend them to everyone we meet...I cannot say enough about Bark Busters.
The program works!
Marc Deppe visited us yesterday, kindly filling in for our usual Texas trainer, to help us address some issues with our Rottweiler puppy. After 15 minutes I didn't recognize the often rambunctious puppy we had been living with! His communication skills with her and with us was incredible. He was very patient with us, listening to all the issues we had been facing, and systematically set about to tell us and then demonstrate to us how to effectively correct these behaviors. Our puppy loved him!
Marc really does have a special gift for dog training, and I couldn't recommend him any higher.
Marc and Karen came to my home to work with my two pups, Rosie and Midnight. I adopted Rosie 3 years ago and ever since I have not been able to take her on a peaceful walk. She would yank me down the street all while choking herself to the point of turning blue. After only a couple of minutes of using the Bark Busters training method, Rosie began to walk calmly all while paying attention to me and not her usual distractions. With consistency on my part in her training I know she will be a pleasure to stroll through the park with. Ever since Rosie corrected her behavior, Midnight followed suit. Midnight is also much calmer and looks for me to give her direction. I am so happy with the immediate results we've experienced. Marc and Karen helped us flip the dynamic in my household and I couldn't be more ecstatic. I highly recommend them if you want to have a peaceful coexistence with your pooch.
I have a 1.5 yr old pit bull mix who was becoming increasingly dog aggressive and terrible on a leash. I even stopped taking him to the dog park for fear he would injure another dog. Our walks usually turned into a jog because I was so tired of tugging on the collar and choking him. If we saw another dog--even from a distance--he would start barking and launching at the poor other pup.
We called bark busters because we wanted a happier, more relaxed dog and our home methods were not working.
Marc spent 3 hours at our house and the result was immediate. It's definitely not a one day miracle but he taught us how to communicate with our pup like his mother would have and the compliance is remarkable. His methods require that you assert yourself as the alpha daily so that the dog does not regress into his old behaviors but it gets easier everyday.
I'm so glad Marc could help us and our pup! I called a few other trainers who basically told me dog aggression is something that cannot be changed... Bark Busters proved that wrong.
It was worth every penny!!!
Marc is seriously great! I interviewed a lot of trainers to help me with my dog and Marc was by far the most knowledgeable, kind, and realistic. Other trainers wanted me to use "shock collars" and other hurtful methods. Marc taught me to put my dogs anxiety and aggression into check by simply just being what my dog needs.
Marc was patient, helpful, and flexible. After the first session there was a noticeable difference in my dog. After one training session and one week of daily exercises my dog has become manageable and I feel like there is "light at the end of the tunnel". (Just make sure to do your daily exercises like Marc tells you:)
Bark Busters and Marc's knowledge is worth every penny and realistic for real life!
