Mark is awesome. He trained us in dog language so we could better act as leaders of our dog pack. Our first session was last night, with amazing results. My wife and I are now serious about getting the right technique and applying it consistently. If you're serious about having a better relationship with your dog pack, take the course, do the work and be a better dog leader. Your dogs will thank you.

unbelievable the change in my rescue pup that Marc achieved in 1 visit of a few hours. Oreo is already so responsive and Marc did a great job of training me also. Highly recommend.

We were so surprised how quickly Sunny responded to this way of training. After a few hours Sunny is much less apprehensive outside and can actually walk on a leash without pulling our arms out of socket! We are thankful!

I am completely blown away at the transformation in our Murphy. After only 2 hours Murphy was able to walk on leash and pass other dogs without any aggression or barking. Truly a miracle worker. This is my second day. Murphy follows my lead and has been terrific. No issues at all. He is still the same cute little character we have loved for 6 years only better now because we can take him out knowing that we are in control. Thank you Mark.

Karen was very helpful during our first session.She provided me with a sold training plan that I can implement immediately.

We've been using the Bark Buster protocol for just a week. When we first starting researching trainers, we watched the companies testimonials and were a little skeptical. When Marc came to our home for our 3 hour session, the first 20-30 minutes was spent explaining the process and telling us what the key things were that we need to do and do CONSISTENTLY. After that, he/we started to work directly with Gracie. Within minutes, Gracie's behavior changed. We couldn't believe it. By the end of the 3 hours, we new what we needed to do (with back up documentation provided to us) and have been diligent in following all the steps. It's been a game changer. The key to this programs success 110% lies with my husband and I doing exactly what we were taught. And I am confident that if we have questions about any aspect of what we learned, Marc gave us several ways to get in touch with him. If I didn't see the almost immediate change in Gracie for myself, I wouldn't have thought it possible. While Gracie was a great dog and obedient, there were some areas that required immediate assistance. We've got the tools now. The program is worth its weight in gold.

It is almost impossible to believe that my little dog is the same dog he was before working with Marc from Bark Busters on October 14th. In part because of a terrifying experience with another dog, he had become aggressive with other dogs in the neighborhood and sometimes with people. Within a period of three hours, Marc showed Ed, my boyfriend, and me techniques to use to correct those behaviors, resulting in what I can only describe as a miraculous transformation. The techniques do not involve corporal punishment or using treats; they simply show Charlie by our stance and firm commands what we expect. Both we and Charlie learned them and started using them while Marc was here. For about 24 hours, Charlie seemed a little bummed out by the new rules, but that passed very quickly. He no longer displays behavior that displays anxiety, like biting at his paws. He and we are relaxed, and the neighbors are overjoyed. Ed and I are committed to being purposeful and consistent in employing what Marc taught us. I HIGHLY recommend Bark Busters. It is pricey but worth every penny.Kay Hammond

Marc was amazing As soon as he entered the home he had control of my dog.My furry child Had so much anxiety She would bark all the time, loud noise would scare her. She absolutely hates the pool guys, She would run out the door every chance she got not coming when called.I had lost all control.She was a unhappy dog.Then Marc come and saved my dogShe comes to me when I call her She even walks outside but stays by me no leash, When the pool people come there is no barking, Someone comes to the door she barks to let me know and then she's quiet Love that,People can come into my home without her carrying on, thunderstorm she just lays by my side totally content she's has even eaten her food Thanks to mark she is a carefree happy lovable dog Thank you Marc from the bottom of my heart You rock!
02:07 09 Aug 21
Wow, simple yet effective training method, we really did see results on first lesson (huge difference with 2 rottweilers, not easy task) I said simple and I mean simple, you just have to stick with it....I would highly recommend bark busters treasure coast if you are in need of training with our pooch(s)!
14:06 07 Jul 21
Mark provides you with knowledge that’s crucial to both pet and owner.Marty showed improvement in behavior and Mark showed me how to practice and keep improving.
00:56 08 Jun 21
Amazing experience with Marc from Bark Busters! He showed up on time, was very professional, relatable, knowledgeable, and most importantly, Easy to talk to. We were somewhat spectacle about the progress they claim they could make, but after not even 5 minutes of starting this program, our jaws hit the floor, we were stunned at the almost instant change in our dog. We are happy to say that we can see a future where not only is our pup going to be happy, but we are going to be happy as well. Thank you again for everything you do!
14:48 10 May 21
Marc is AMAZING!!!! I have three big boys, two shepherds and one we are not sure of. They range from 4 years to 13 years old. This last year has had a lot of changes in the house and when my kids moved out our house was no longer a peaceful place. Within the first session I had the tools I needed to be the leader of the pack and I noticed a big difference in the boys. I investigated a lot of different trainers and none of them felt right until I found BARK BUSTERS.THANK you so much Marc and BARK BUSTERS our lives are so much better and I am looking forward to our future.

After a lot of cuts and bruises and pretty much giving up on my dog I contacted Bark Busters. Within three hours Mark showed us how to handle our wonderful Scarlet so she could be part of the family and not the problem. Today a day later she is like a different dog. My mom who is 4 foot seven was even able to come over without her jumping on her and knocking her down. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Bark Busters so we can keep Scarlet and she will be a wonderful addition to our family. I am eternally grateful.
14:55 11 Apr 21
With our furbaby Dawson we had bark busters come train. He was demanding at playtime and sometimes jumped on people. It was very important to us that he was not touched or traumatized in any way. After the trainer Mark left Dawson has been listening to everything! He is so smart and the funny thing is they taught us how to speak dog and be the alpha and that is all it took. Dawson is still loving as ever. Everyone is happy in our household.
22:21 22 Mar 21
Marc has an amazing sense for dogs and their humans, who he trains. Personable, patient and knowledgeable, my 2 totally uncontrolled dogs are walking on their leashes like well behaved pups. They don't rush the door anymore. I can walk past other people and dogs and it's not a crazed barkfest of insanity. It's only been 3 days and the difference is astonishing. You HAVE to work the program, but it's not hard once Marc teaches you to speak Dog. I highly recommend Marc and Bark Busters to ANYONE looking to get their beloved pets under control and living their best lives in all social settings. I also highly recommend working on your best BAH, you will need it!
18:11 08 Mar 21
Hiring Marc was the best decision I have made this year only mistake was not picking up the phone and calling sooner. The 3 hours of training was well worth the money for the information and training guidance he shared with us. My wife and two daughters felt more confident in themselves and being able to get our dog to be the best family dog for US.Lastly Marc bluntness and directness was perfect he took away any doubt we had about our dog and our ability to speak "Dog" so we would enjoy having a dog in our household. If you are in need of getting your dog to be best dog for your house stop looking around and Call Marc from Bark Busters you wont regret it.-CJ "Gunny"
14:48 08 Mar 21
I honestly don’t know what I would have done if Marc hadn’t come to our house to help with our dogs! I have one dog with such severe separation anxiety that I have literally been a prisoner in my own home. After just one session, my pup already has more confidence in being left alone. The improvement with all 3 of my dogs in just mere days is seriously hard to believe. My house isn’t chaotic anymore and I’m actually not embarrassed when I have people knock on my door.I can not thank Marc & Bark Busters enough for the time and knowledge.
15:30 01 Mar 21
Marc is our trainer. He is SO incredibly knowledgeable and was so clear in his instructions on how to work with our dog to create a calmer environment. We are less than one week in and we are already seeing major changes (for the better) in our dog. Excited for this to continue so we can ENJOY our dog and not constantly be chasing her or yelling at her for doing ALL of the wrong things/ruining our house!! HIGHLY recommend Marc!!
18:36 21 Feb 21
My dog has special needs from being abused and requires a great deal of patience and understanding when working with him. I turned to bark busters when my dog began to get leash aggressive towards other dogs and men. Marc came to my home and was wonderful with my dog. Marc took his time with him and was so sweet with him. He also explained a lot to me about why he was acting the way he was. What shocked me the most was after only one session we took my dog for a walk and walked him right up to a man on the trail behind my house and he didn’t bark, didn’t growl, and never lunged at him. I was speechless. Marcs methods work 100%. My dog is not only better behaved but just seems more relaxed on walks now. I would recommend bark busters to anyone.
21:39 15 Feb 21
Marc is an incredible trainer! If you’re looking for a dog/human trainer for any reason, please do yourself and your pup a favor and call him. He is AMAZING!!! He will teach you to lead and manage your dog with simple, yet effective methods. They work, I am telling you, THEY WORK!! I have a 100 lb awesome dog, we are basically the same size, and I can control him during walks and and keep him calm and relaxed thanks to Marc’s teachings. And it was all done rather quickly and with ease. I recommend Marc to any and all dog owners! He’s personable, knowledgeable, confident, professional, kind and loving to our dogs. Your life and your pup’s life will be better for it. Just do it!!! Worth every penny!!! Thank you Marc!!!! Lucas and I love you!!!! ❤️🐾❤️
02:02 29 Jan 21
I have to admit, it feels a little weird at first but it’s the most efficient way I experienced in controlling my dog behavior. I’m impressed! Marc has teached me a lot on the 1 st day and I already see a big difference in my dog! It makes sense and it’s working!
20:33 22 Jan 21
Marc is a true godsend. Our dog Ella has some serious issues, mostly wanting to attack anything with 4 legs due to being attacked herself a couple of times. Marc taught us what we were doing wrong in trying to get Ella to not attack and showed us the correct way to change her bad habits. After only 1 visit we can already see a difference in her. Thank you Marc and Bark Busters for all the information and help.Dan and Deb DuBois.
23:22 13 Jan 21
Wow, if could give a higher rating of 5 stars I would. Marc is wonderful. He is very knowledgeable. I was amazed at how well our fur babies reacted. We have a 2 year old lab who has been in training twice before. He is doing so much better in just one day of training. ie barking, walking on a leash, staying put when the door is open, jumping on people Bark Busters and Marc Deppe are the answers to our prayers!
22:56 13 Jan 21
Karen from Bark Busters was very professional, as well as very caring about our new puppy Abbie.She is very knowledgeable about all breeds and helped us begin to help our rough collie begin her understanding to listen to us.Karen showed us the correct way to adapt to a new puppy and do the correct things.We would be happy to reccomend Bark Busters to any pet family with any issue they need assistance with thier dog at any age.Cynthia

As a dog owner for 50 years I finally learned how to communicate with dogs to get the behavior I desired.I was a psychology minor in college(behaviorist learning) so I had a background in human behavior. BarkBusters in one very intense 3 hour teaching session showed my wife and I how to elicit the behaviors we desired for our 2 dogs.( 1 puppy and one 6 year old.). After less then 1 week we are communicating with our dogs and getting the behavior we desire! We are truly amazed! We have more to lear at our next lesson. All this behavior with NO treats! The dogs still love us but now understand our needs. We highly recommend BarkBusters!
23:16 22 Dec 20
Simply amazing. Didn't think it was possible to control my dog aggressive 80 lb Pitt/ boxer mix. Tough to control? Not anymore!! It worked and it makes sense. Love Marc, dedicated dog lover. I am so glad I called Bark Busters!!!
23:39 20 Dec 20
Though my family & I were not skeptical of what Marc could do with our pup, we certainly were not expecting to see results that day! Learning to speak your dog’s language is life-changing for your dog and the relationship you have with them. We finally feel in control of and understand our dog’s behavior. He’ll love your dog as his own. Very grateful for Marc!
18:11 11 Nov 20
My Coton de Tulear barked so excessively that I was cozened about being able to keep her. In one visit Marc showed us how to all but eliminate the problem. Now she does not make a sound when I take her outdoors to relieve herself.
19:13 19 Oct 20
It was great to learn to speak Dog. It was very encouraging to see how quickly the concepts provide results. We look forward to continued work.
03:27 19 Oct 20
My husband and I are thrilled to have Marc working with us and our sweet rescue dog. Bark Busters philosophy of using methods that don’t hurt or frighten the dogs mirrors our own. Our Gigi was very stressed when Marc arrived. It was a problem with anybody coming to the house, and we hoped her frantic barking could be controlled. Marc showed us the technique Bark Busters uses, and we’ve been practicing every day. A workman came to the house a couple of days ago to finish some work he was doing. When he rang the doorbell, she barked and started for the door. I immediately used the technique we’d been taught and Gigi stopped barking, stopped moving, and laid down. She stayed there while I went to the door and let the worker in. When I invited her closer, she was quiet and respectful approaching him. No reaction, other than friendly. She has never exhibited aggressiveness so we were not worried about her hurting anyone. She was frightened, and that’s how she reacted. We’re excited to have Marc work with us on the other issues we have. I want to emphasize that Marc is amazing with Gigi. After he had spent a short time getting acquainted with her, she was in love with him. I joked that I thought she wanted to trade us in for Marc!
20:58 17 Oct 20
Karen from Bark Busters is helping me to solve issues with my 11-month-old American Field Labrador. We met for 4 hours in the first session and I was quite amazed at the progress in one session. I'm learning how to take back the leadership of the house. She helped me solve problems with barking when the doorbell rings, jumping on people, and my dog surfing the counter-tops for food. My home has been so much more peaceful. I highly recommend Bark Busters and Karen.
03:26 29 Sep 20
I had lost hope that my 2 dogs who really love each so much would have to be separated forever because of sibling rivalry They had a few spars in the past but the last one scared be enough that I cannot leave them alone ever I needed help. I went to the internet and found varkbysterd and also called several vets and they came highly recommended. When I xss as lord I knew it was the right place just from our conversation. I set.an appointment and had one session and we were completely amazed at how easily the dogs responded to the training. For months my boyfriend and I are practically living separate lives because the dogs Xantech be togeather but from what I saw with only one session I am confident things will get back to normal. He is basically training us how to deal with them and take control I am so grateful❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏
10:50 18 Sep 20
The improvement in our puppy’s behavior is dramatic. He has stopped nipping at me, jumping on guests, and chewing on forbidden items. He is happier, I am happier. Well worth the cost and we are just getting started. I highly recommend Bark Busters
21:32 01 Sep 20
Marc and the Bark Busters training system really is amazing. I can’t believe how easily it actually works! Like anything you have to take the time to practice but I am seeing virtually immediate results with my 10 week old Goldendoodle. He seems to actually understand what I am telling him thanks to the simple but ingenious method of “speaking” his language. Marc spent quality time with me, my kids and Kiko explaining and showing us the method. He responded quickly to all of my follow up questions & concerns (which are many as I have never had a puppy before, let alone any dog!) This training is worth the cost and is invaluable as I am learning skills to ensure a lifetime positive relationship with my puppy. Thanks Marc! Thanks Bark Busters! You have taken out the guess work from puppy training.
21:04 23 Aug 20
Marc has been extremely helpful and resourceful with our puppy training. We have no regrets for calling Bark Busters and encourage others to do the same! We are brand new puppy parents so we had no clue what to do at times but Marc has helped us through the process along the way!

We have a one years old boxer named Walter and he has the sweetest temperament, but has some behavioral issues. He is over protective of me so is pinned to me wherever I go and has separation anxiety when I leave the house, which results in massive destruction. (ie. remote controls chewed, dog beds destroyed, anything left on the counter chewed). When someone came to the door he rushed to it and jumped on the door. Anytime I was cooking, his paws were on the counter, looking for what he could get and finally when he wanted to play he would nip at my ankles and jump all over me. When Marc came over and we went through each problem area one by one, I was amazed at how simple the techniques are that they use and how quickly they work. I used Marc's training technique with the door and Walter didn't come near it. He learned that in under 1 minute without treats or a command word. I learned how to claim the kitchen and my own personal space in under 5 mins. Marc is so in tune with how to communicate with dogs and now I know how to communicate better with Walter. I am so happy I contacted Bark Busters and if you are having any issues with your dog and want quick and effective resolution, this is the place for you.

I am a vet tech in vero beach. We had Marc come out and do a lunch and learn with us which really caught my attention. Then the Veternarian I work for Gave them a try and had only wonderful great things to say. So I figured to give them a shot since my dogs were having some serious misbehaving issues. Marc was very thorough and took his time to help teach me everything! We covered all of our problems (nipping, door manners, claiming person space, leash walking and more) I am more than impressed with Bark Busters! For a long while I was becoming discouraged because my young aussie wasn’t listening no matter what I did. Even after the first visit I could see improvement in both of my dogs! I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to anyone I know with a dog! They’re wonderful people and honestly amazing at what they do.
16:34 15 Jul 20
Amazing service! Extremely friendly trainer! Let's be honest, I was very skeptical when I heard how they planned on changing my Pug, Frank's bad behavior without touching him, no treats, and no shock collars. I was floored when the trainer began his lessons, and I was totally sold, within the first 5 minutes of him showing his technique. It works! It's worth every dime that is invested into this training. Very satisfied customer!
11:50 11 Jun 20
Bark Busters truly will change your life with your dogs! I noticed within my first training session that my dogs responded better than I anticipated. I highly recommend Bark Busters!
17:54 03 Jun 20
I cannot say enough about my experience with Bark Buster's. I worked directly with Marc, and appreciated the basic principles taught to me so as to improve the relationships in our "pack!" My dog responded immediately and is making fine progress and so am I as a pack leader now. I look forward to bonding more each day with my dog and trust that Bark Buster's is there for me anytime we need them! Thank you Marc!
11:57 20 May 20
Marc came by yesterday and had Max using the ramp to get into car with no problems at all. I was able to get him to use the ramp this morning to bring him to work with me. I am so happy!

I have always been a dog owner but never before did I have a pup that would bite. My adorable bernadoodle was wonderful at the dog park but a terror at home. He bit me, my son, the groomer, and even a potential beau..... twice!So instead of throwing him out of the car.... ( just kidding!) I decided to look up aggressive dog training on line.I saw a video of a miraculous change, in one afternoon and I was intrigued. I called the number and hooked up with Marc. He regaled me with story after unbelievable story and I was hooked.So here I am to say it is all true! I had already tried a regular trainer who asked to board and train, who had my dog for a week! I'd already gone to obedience training where treats were dispensed so frequently I thought we'd end up with a an eating disorder.Here are the behaviors that are now90% gone. ( hey it's only day 1 )begging at the table, charging at the door, pulling on the leash, climbing into the front seat of the car, not letting me brush him, and basically being a constant nudge.Instead I have a calm happy dog that I can walk and run with,He knows I'm the Alpha and I don't have to do anything more than speak in a gutteral tone and sometimes spray water at him.Absolutely amazing experience and clear follow up instructions with a promise to provide followy up even my home state.
20:51 28 Feb 20
Very hesitant about paying so much money to have a few corrections made but after watching Mark work and also working with us to understand the process we realized that there was no way we could have done this alone. The system is easy and the result are immediate.
22:21 08 Feb 20
We recently contacted Bark Busters to help us solve a problem with our 5 year old toy Australian Shepherd. She is very sweet and well trained until someone comes to the door. She instantly becomes super aggressive and will "herd" our guests nipping at their heels and sometimes their hands. She also has begun growling to signal when she wants to be left alone. All of these behaviors are not acceptable and we were concerned that they seem to be escalating. We were worried that she might bite someone. Although we've been able to train her easily we've had no luck with this door and guest behavior. In addition, she is terrified of loud noises and shakes like a leaf in the car (even though she loves to ride in the car). We took her to a behavioral veterinarian who gave us medication for anxiety (which only made it worse) and had us crate her anytime we had guests. That works at home but doesn't work when not at home and the aggressive behaviors were beginning to happen outside our home.Marc met with us within days of our initial call and spent about 3 hours training us on their philosophy and methods. He taught us about how important is it is for Piper to see us as the leader of the pack so she can be calm and feel safe. The changes we saw in her behavior were immediate. We've been following through on the training instructions for 2 days. Here are just the early results:1) We've taken Piper on long walks. She walks calmly next to me with little to no correction needed. No pulling or sniffing, just walking until we give her a sniff break.2) Took her on the beach today off leash to let her run. She'd run like the wind but come immediately when called.3) Had a 2 hour lunch with friends and she laid quietly by my side without any pulling or whining. That's never happened before.4) She loves to go in the car but trembles and pants. We were on the go for hours today (market, beach, restaurant) so she was in and out of the car many times. Each time I put her in the back seat, she laid calmly and quietly. Never once tried to get into the front seat (that's a first).5) No visitors yet but the training exercises are going well. One loud "bah" stops her in her tracks when we ring the doorbell. Feel confident that she will respond well.Based on these first 2 days and how Piper is responding exactly as Marc predicted, we highly recommend Marc and Bark Busters' methods.
21:56 03 Feb 20
Marc did an amazing job with Leonardo on our first visit. The main thing I needed worked on was his barking at the door as I live in a senior condominium yet Leonardo took to Marc immediately that we had to induce barking while Marc remained outside and knocked on the windows and yet still no barking. It was not until the knock on the door and the attempted entry when Leonardo finally started to bark which was immediately stopped by using the techniques Marc had worked on with me.In addition he no longer jumps on me while I am at the computer and stays outside the areas I am in unless invited in as Marc showed me.I still need a lot of work on me but Leonardo and Marc were wonderful.I would recommend him to anyone.Susan R.

Our baby Beagle is so sweet but lacked so many social skills. We would never hurt her and didn't want to use a cruel shock collar. We tried scolding and/or banging a newspaper or magazine on the table. We tried a louder and a softer "No" to no avail! She seemed to have a mind of her own. We knew her love of people and other animals (Her jumping) was not always well received. Even worse, she might run out of the door despite our calling her and be injured or killed by a passing car. She chewed everything and was always underfoot in the kitchen, we couldn't eat a meal without her trying to steal it. We felt so confused and finally realized the real culprit was our lack of knowing what to do to get through to her. We called Marc at Bark Busters and explained our dilemma. We were shocked to see how our baby girl stopped all that bad behavior during a 3.5 hour visit with Marc. Now, well armed with knowledge, the rest is up to us to practice a mere 10 minutes every day! Our puppy has really learned a lot and our frustration level has lowered dramatically. We look forward to our next visit in two weeks. Marc is a true animal lover and nothing he does is mean or cruel, in fact much of his visit was spent praising, petting and kissing our 7 month old puppy. Marc and Bark Busters are worth every penny and their guarantee is for life should any new problems arise in the future.
01:23 24 Jan 20
My dog Ava had a lot of behavior issues. Even after a 3 week board and train program, I was still at my wits end with her behavior. When Marc described the difference between an obedient dog and a well behaved dog, it perfectly explained the issues I was still having with Ava. With in one session a saw a complete difference in the way my dog responded me. She stopped charging the door, jumping on guests, picking up everything in her mouth she was not supposed to, and the goes on. Essentially she went from having zero boundaries to completely respecting any boundary I put in place. I would highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone who is struggling with their dogs behavior. I wish I had found them sooner.
18:43 23 Jan 20
Marc came to our house for our initial appointment and he was positive, had a can-do attitude and was a wealth of knowledge on dog training.

Definitely worth the investment. I cannot believe how simple the methods were, and how quickly and effectively it made my dog feel happier, safer, and calmer. Definitely don't sit this opportunity out! Jack says thank you!
15:09 07 Jan 20
Contacted Bark Busters and within an hour had a response. Mark the trainer came and spent 3 glorious hours with us. Sawyer, our 6 months old Samoyed went from a wild “I’m Alpha” dog to a well mannered loving puppy that very night. Walks are enjoyable now...I’m not getting mouthed nor barked at nor pulled. Wish I had known about this method of training sooner.Worth every penny!

After adopting a bonded pair of 2 year old boxers (previously trained by Bark Busters) we found we needed to learn their language so they would respond to commands. We have ten grandchildren, and these are big pups who are full of energy. We had to gain control of their behavior before someone was accidentally hurt. Karen Deppe came to our home, explained the Bark Busters training methods, and provided tools for us to use. We put her suggestions to use immediately and the results were dramatic. The dogs come when they're called, they sit when they are told, they are playing with their own toys and not our shoes... Amazing. We still have to work with them every day, but this investment of time pays big dividends. I whole heartedly recommend Bark Busters and Karen Deppe.
13:49 20 Nov 19
Truly transformational! It was amazing to see what Marc could accomplish in just 3-hours. He taught me how to be the "Alpha dog" so Ollie doesn't think he needs to do it - i.e. no aggressive barking when friends come over. The leash training is still a challenge - we continue to practice each day. It's a long road, but I think we'll get there. Thanks so much!
13:47 29 Oct 19
Marc was great, so many things we were doing wrong. The lessons that Marc thought us were so informative and made sense. We look forward introducing the lesson into our daily routine so that we can have happy well behaved dogs (Stella & Tobi)Thank you for all help.Warm wishesAimee
22:57 21 Oct 19
A couple of months ago I had the privilege of working with Marc from Bark Busters. With the short amount of time that he worked with my golden retriever, Rhett, I saw a tremendous difference in Rhett’s attitude and behavior inside & outside that I didn’t think was possible! The techniques that Marc used with Rhett are very unique and by the end of the 2.5 hours Rhett was a completely different dog! Can’t thank Marc enough for the training and I will be working with the company more in the future!

I can’t say enough good things about Marc and Bark Busters Dog Training. Marc is not only personable with his “human clients”; but his love for his canine clients radiates! We recently adopted the sweetest, most loving tripawed German Sheppard from Big Dog Ranch rescue when our loving canine passed after 16 wonderful years with him. Our new fur baby “German” is perfect in all aspects, with the exception of severe separation anxiety. We could not leave the room - let alone the house - without our new member. This separation anxiety was so severe we were terrified our new baby would seriously injure himself if left alone. After countless hours of research, I reached out to Marc for help and he responded immediately. Realizing the severity of German’s separation anxiety, Marc acted quickly and we had our first training session last night. We were blown away - to say the least - at the response German had to the training! After just a single session with Marc, I am happy to say German is completely cooperating and I can already leave a room for a while without him. We will definitely put in the work we need to do to make our baby feel not only loved, but completely secure. Today, I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that this was the best decision we could have made for not only German’s health, but ours as well. Thank you Marc for being the best thing that has happened to German! I look forward to the baby steps we will take for a long lasting, healthy relationship with our beautiful boy! I urge anyone that is in need of behavioral training to reach out to Marc and Karen. You will definitely not be disappointed and your fur baby will be in the best hands ever!

Marc from Bark Busters is a very good teacher and personality. We learned key strategies in a very short amount of time. It was surprising how simple the concepts were and how quickly the dog responded to Marc as soon as he arrived at our home. We think Marc is terrific and would refer others to him.
14:02 29 Sep 19
I was very skeptical about getting a dog trainer, but Marc exceeded our expectations of what would happen in just one session. Immediate improvement in both my dogs behavior and easy to follow training instructions. We are extremely satisfied and look forward to continue to working with our dogs to have well behaved and happier dogs. The pups are much less anxious as anxiety was a huge problem with our two smaller breed dogs and Marc worked with us to explain how dogs think and behave. Would definitely recommend! I feel like I learned so much!

Amazing experience! We worked with Marc and just can't say enough positive things about our experience. Marc is very knowledgable and helpful and has a way of making learning a positive experience both for us and our two dogs. From the minute Marc entered the house he had the respect of our dogs and helped us to do the same and achieve the results we were looking for with multiple issues including barking at everyone who came to our home. We are so very pleased with our results and would highly recommend Marc and Barkbusters!
14:19 11 Aug 19
Wonderful business. Mark (our trainer) is a patient and excellent teacher. Even a year after our initial meeting when we were still having issues with our 115lb great Dane, he came on his day off to help us with a new method to prevent pulling. Always friendly and absolutely willing to help, very honest, and absolutely loves our dog (she loves him too)! Would definitely recommend Bark Buster's.
14:05 08 Aug 19
Mark and Karen are very professional and really know how to help you. We have three dogs and they taught and showed us the true simplicity of being a pack leader without making training hard. Looking forward to continuing the exercises we were given to see how far our dogs come in a couple months, because just in the first few hours there was a noticeable change. So happy we went with bark busters and would definitely recommend to a friend!
19:35 31 Jul 19
Second Review...because they are that good! We recently moved and 1 of our girls regressed a bit as she was the problem child to begin with. Marc immediately answered, worked through multiple options and came to our new home to make sure she was progressing. It seems as though Marc has seen it all when it comes to bad doggie behavior and he always has an answer for us. Since our last visit, Bailey is back on track and making leaps and bounds. As with all things, repetition is key and as long as you follow Marc's guidance, keep to the training, and give your dogs the time they need, you will not be disappointed! Would highly recommend!
16:50 31 Jul 19
I am amazed how easily Zeke learned from Marc and I was able to keep up with the same methods. I would highly recommend Marc and Bark Busters to anyone looking for in home training. I look forward to our next session so Zeke can become the BEST puppy ever!
00:39 28 Jul 19
Marc is amazing! He's like a dog magician!!
22:38 19 Jul 19
Marc just worked with our dog Duke who is a cane corso and was great. We were having issues with him acting up when we were gone and also with interactions with dogs and distractions. After 2 hours with Marc, Duke seemed more comfortable and less anxious. I cant wait to see what happens after 2 weeks of practice!!
20:46 16 Jul 19
Great trainer, very professional! I was skeptical after working with multiple companies, but Marc exceeded everyone's expectations and those of the people we referred him to. Marc was very engaged and went out of his own comfort zone to help us with our aggressive dog by going above and beyond to make a difference in our lives. Thank you for keeping our family together.
20:19 27 Jun 19
It is truly amazing how Marc and the Bark Buster’s method made me feel so empowered with my little dog. She responded amazingly, and today we are still doing well. I definitely recommend this program for people who are struggling with how to handle their dogs.
01:40 24 Jun 19
Our trainer Marc was extremely informational and effective in just the single three-hour session we had. Our dog immediately picked up Bark Busters learning method and responded very well to it. I completely agree with their methods as there is no treats provided nor any cruel or harsh objects used on the dog. This was something we were really looking in dog trainers and Bark Busters provided all of it for us! Five star recommendation!
00:06 22 Jun 19
With Marc's help, we accomplished more in 3 hours with our pit mix puppies than we had accomplished in 1.5 years of training with other trainers! This system really works. It seemed crazy when Marc told me about it, but the dogs responded immediately and they continue to learn everyday! We have much happier pups now!
21:35 16 Jun 19
I am so happy we decided to call Bark Busters. Marc was wonderful in the way he explained everything, from why dogs do what they do to learning to speak "Dog". I was stunned at my dogs reactions and absolutely amazed with their behavior today... Its like we have two different dogs! I highly recommend Bark Busters if you have any issues with your dogs!
16:21 13 Jun 19
Bark Busters was an amazing experience. Marc came to our home to help us with our 2 Dalmation puppies and older Dalmation. The results have been immediate. Marc set us up for success with several tools to practice daily with the dogs and all is well. We were even able to take them to the dog park for the first time in over a year. The constant barking has lessened and walking has become a pleasure. Looking forward to continued success.
01:35 13 May 19
We had our first season with Bark Busters and we were amazed how our 4 dogs responded to the training. I have been used to giving treats to work with commands, which I prefer not to do. I am pleased to say everything we learned for our dogs did not consist of treat rewards. There are 4 dogs and when someone comes to the door there are 4 barking, obnoxious dogs, which is very annoying. Bark Busters showed us how to manage these barking monsters in one class. Amazing. They are good. The best part of their training is that there is not any treats, not any loud reprimands, or any force, only calm assertive training. I love their methods of training.
13:02 09 May 19
Great 1st session with Karen. Instant results and the tools to give our new boy the training to make his life and ours stress free. Bark Busters is well worth the time and investment and we look forward to having their support throughout the life of our best buddy!
23:37 30 Apr 19
Within just a few hours Marc was able to train our family and give us the lifelong tools to help deal with any dog training issue that might come up and the existing issues we were having with our puppy. With lots of practice, I think we are going to have one amazing dog. If you need help with any dog behavior issues, I highly recommend making an appointment with Bark Busters.
20:59 11 Apr 19
Not cheap but very much worth it, Marc is great.
14:54 13 Mar 19
My husband and i are extremtly happy that we contacted Bark Busters. My puppy got his first training class with Mark yesterday, the change in my puppy was immediately. Thank you Mark for all the information you gave us, my puppy is responding to all the right correction. I reccomend Bark Busters 100%
19:02 25 Feb 19
Marc was great with Duke and the results in just a few hours were truly amazing! I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone!
23:54 18 Feb 19
This was the greatest experience we have had with our dogs. We have two giant schnauzers who are well trained and very social. About a year ago, the younger one started fighting aggressively with the older one (2 yrs and 6 yrs). It was frightening to watch when this happened. We were at the point where we even discussed having to find home for one of them. We didn't know what to do or how to fix it. We had to keep them separated in the house. UNTIL....... this Friday we met with Karen and Mark from Bark Busters TC. It was unbelievable! I was skeptical when they told us they would spend 3 hours together and we would see a difference. It was so simple and everything they said all made perfect sense. Helping us understand their process, and teaching us, we had both dogs listening to our commands and reacting to them immediately. Within 3 days, our dogs have stopped barking at people who come to the door, or walking past our fence. They know their boundaries and I must say the young one, who was trying to be the leader is the calmest I have seen him. They are both happy dogs. Our next session is bringing them together with Karen and Mark. I can't wait. I highly recommend both Karen ad Mark. They are both remarkable dog trainers (people trainers). :-)
12:37 18 Feb 19
AT our wits end and no where To Turn we looked for a training program to fit our needs and our schedule and our budget. We found inexpensive but I firmly believe you get what you pay for. I had checked with the pet store only to find out they have minimal experience so I checked bark Busters the price seemed high but then I had no options that even compared they came to me and I have two dogs that has a lifetime guarantee. AFTER THE SECOND hour I noticed a huge difference in both our pets and both my husband and myself. We are a work in progress and my only complaint is that we didnt do this earlier. If I never see her again I got my money's worth in just one visit. Very impressed and more importantly my pet kids are becoming much better family members.
18:50 17 Feb 19
Suprisingly simple yet absolutely effective .Marc makes it very clear and you will absolutely see significant results after first session. I highly recommend him.
22:36 15 Feb 19
I have had one session with Karen Deppe and I saw a complete change in both my dogs. One of them had many behavioral concerns that I needed addressed (including aggression) as well as training for my other dog. She took the time and explained how I needed to become the "pack leader" and gave me so much information about how to be successful with training. I highly recommend Bark Busters (Karen and Marc Deppe) for all your training needs. The main thing is to be consistent and if you follow through you will not fail. I am so happy I reached out. I felt hopeless and that there was no way to restore order in my house but we are headed there!!!! THANK YOU!
13:53 06 Feb 19
Marc was amazing with my dog! My pup Leo and I moved to Florida from NYC and we were both experiencing "moving anxiety". We had worked with Barkbusters in NYC and I knew it was the way to go! He spent no less than two hours dealing with all our (and I say OUR as of course it's up to me to make it work!!) issues. By the end of our session, Leo was definitely compliant and I was reminded of all the reasons BBusters is the best home dog training there is (shout out to Sarah in NYC too). Marc left me with a complete write-up on all the things I have to do to make sure Leo behaves - and this way I can't say I don't have the tools to make it work! I LOVE BARKBUSTERS.
01:05 25 Jan 19
Marc at bark busters really expanded my canine knowledge. He really helps you understand your dog, and just how to “speak”. I didn’t expect my dog to respond so positively and quickly. You can’t expect to train your dog if you don’t do a little training yourself.
18:00 18 Jan 19
I couldn’t be more pleased with Bark Busters & the fantastic results we're having so quickly! Quickly, as in our very first session! Our pooch was a “road-side find” 2 years ago & she came with all kinds of issues. She was anxious, afraid & traumatized. She desperately wanted to please us but her fearfulness was causing her to show aggression toward other dogs & sometimes people who came to the door. This became a huge problem & we could see it progressing to the point when she’d probably bite another dog eventually.We were not in favor of other training techniques that utilize choke collars, shock collars & other painful devices which made it challenging to connect with a trainer that we were comfortable with. I finally found Bark busters & am so grateful for their training ethics & technique! No pain to our sensitive pup & she responds so well I can hardly believe the progress! She’s not afraid & is relaxed in our home rather than pacing around like she’s on guard duty all day. She doesn’t lunge at other dogs during walks & we were able to take her on a recent family vacation with 100% success! Everyone commented about how beautifully behaved & well mannered she was!I’ve enjoyed every minute working with Karen from Bark Busters while she has patiently trained ME & my pup. Thank you, Karen, for your incredible gift of teaching & showing us the way to a truly happy, content dog!!Huge thumbs (& paws) up for Bark Busters!!!

I have two 5 month old great dane/ german shepherd mixes. They did not listen to me at all. Marc came out and showed me exactly what to do and the results are amazing. I thought there was no hope for me or my dogs and that i was going to waste my money. Totally worth the money. Not only did Marc show me what to do, he explained why it works. I cant thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone who has issues with their dogs.
18:41 20 Nov 18
I loved our experience with Marc from Bark Busters! Our dog Sadie has severe anxiety, and Marc taught us how to ‘speak dog’ and she responded so well. Looking forward to the results as we continue completing the daily exercises with her.

Mark and the Bark Busters method is effective, amazingly easy to implement and produces almost instantaneous results. My husband and I are grateful to have found Mark and this method. We were at a loss at how to train our rescue dog. This program offers a complete support system for you and your pet.
01:26 19 Oct 18
Marc was wondering wonderful! He really took the time with our family! Looking forward to having happy dogs in our home! I highly recommend!!
02:27 16 Oct 18
Marc came out to work with my two Great Danes. When he first got here my boyfriend and I were skeptical about the process because they are both older dogs however, after the session was over We were amazed. One of the big issues we had with Kena (my female Great Dane) was that she would listen to my boyfriend but not me. After the training session and some homework, she now responds perfectly to both of us. Another issue we had was leash aggression, when you are walking 270 lbs of dogs that is a big issue.I am now able to walk both of them alone with no problem. He addressed every concern we had, I would highly highly recommend them. My dogs have become respectable member of society and I absolutely love it.
13:41 11 Oct 18
Met with Karen, she was very nice, clear on her instructions and good with my dog... but strict which is what my dog needs!! I look forward to meeting with her again and continue my dogs training! They give you all the things you need, the collar for (training) walking your dog outside, a very cute bandana, instructions... and many more things! basically all you would need!
13:30 07 Oct 18
Thank god for Marc and bark busters! Marc came to my house a few days ago and helped to train my 2 year old spunky spitfire of a pitbull, lady. Lady had issues with jumping on people, and just being over excited and inattentive to me. After just a short time with Marc, Lady was looking to me for direction, she was no longer jumping on myself and my boyfriend when he walked in the door, and she was a thousand times better at walking on a leash. Marc taught me how to continue my training with Lady and how to be her leader. im so grateful for bark busters for helping me with my wild child!

I had never fostered or owned a dog of my own and when I saw this poor boy's picture on Instagram I wrote "I will foster him.". It didn't take long for me to fall in love with Woody, who is named after one of my father's favorite jazz musicians, Woody Herman. My problem was that I already had 3 cats and Woody wasn't about to play nice to say the least. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep him.I started to do research on dog trainers and found that some used harsh techniques like shock collars. Woody was already coming out of what appeared to be a violent background. People in animal rescue believed that he had possibly been used as a bait dog. The first two photos are from when he came to me. The white marks were wounds that were healing. Anyway, I asked Google for a dog trainer that could get my dog and cats to exist calmly together. Bark Busters came up in the search. I read the reviews and was impressed with the glowing reports of quick success. And I needed things to happen quickly!I called and spoke with Mark who is one of the nicest people on the planet! We met at my home and what I witnessed over the next several hours totally blew my mind. Woody was quite responsive and did very well with the various training exercises that Mark led him through. But the challenge was the situation with my cats. Little by little I exposed them to him and on a second visit with Mark and his wife Karen they encouraged me to go a little further and so I did. I would walk him in the house on leash and use my "dog talk" when needed. I saw progress.Woody was kept in his crate a lot and whenever I would go out I made sure it was not only locked but would tie a leash around it in a double knot. One night when I came home he greeted me in my laundry room! I was shocked and scared. Worried about what I might be seeing as I entered the rest of my home my fears were extinguished when I found 2 of my cats on the arms of the sofa and my oldest, most feeble cat lying comfortably on the sofa! It was a miracle! This occurred one more time as "Divine Confirmation" to me that all was well and Woody now shares the house with my cats in a relatively peaceful manner. I say it that way because my cats have been more combative than him! He has had his face swiped pretty good when he's gotten too close! They actually intimidate him now and that is the last thing I thought I'd see!I'm positive this would not have occurred if I hadn't had Bark Busters training. Mark and Karen are excellent at what they do. Actually, therearen't enough words to describe their professionalism and deep understanding of animal behavior. They are responsive to phone calls and texts and most of all they care about pets and owners coexisting in a happy environment. Who wants to always bee yelling at an animal? How can an animal love and trust you if that's how they're treated? The Bark Busters way is, in my opinion and experience, the best way to train your dog! Look how happy my Woody is now! And I'm happy too! Thank you Mark and Karen!
00:00 08 Sep 18
Such a great experience from beginning to end. I literally watched my 2 dogs transform right in front of me. It was absolutely amazing to watch. I became the leader and learned how to guide the dogs to the rules that needed to be in place. I am now left with the tools to have a happy loving balanced household. Thank you so very much!
14:57 31 Aug 18
Marc and the Bark Buster team were great! They knew exactly what they were doing and are very effective in training all types of unwanted behaviors. My dog pulls on the leash and barks at anyone who knocks on the door. After just one visit, both of these issues have resolved and he is a much calmer, less anxious dog. Being a manager at a local animal hospital, I will definitely be recommending Bark Busters to all my clients!
13:50 31 Aug 18
They came to my house and taught me how to work with my dogs (stubborn, difficult to train American bulldogs!) and within an hour got great results!! I'm amazed and couldn't be happier! It was all done so gently and without force! Amazing.
16:14 30 Aug 18
Marc was amazing and Gracie responded so positive, great experience and much more harmony in our home. Highly recommend.
14:57 28 Aug 18
A few months back I rescued a German Shepherd and named her Lady. Shes definately been a handful and training her has been pretty difficult, especially living alone. Marc, and the rest of Bark Busters, have been a blessing in disguise! He came over to help with training Lady yesterday and ever since it's been a whole new world with her! Of course Rome wasnt built over night and we, and yes of course there's still work to be done with her. But overall she's been more attentive, responsive, and calmer than before her training and I couldnt be any happier! I thank you for taking the time to come by and show me the ropes to properly get Miss. Lady on the path for success! I'll make sure to refer you to anyone I know who needs some professional doggie training! -Stacey A.
My wife and I are floored and ecstatic. Marc came to our house and helped us work with our 2 rottweilers,one of which has aggression issues. In a simple effective manner Marc taught us methods to change our dog's behaviors. We saw a change right in front of our eyes and I was skeptical because I have been to many trainers. Not only did we see a dramatic change in behavior in the first session the dog's continued the next day so WE were able to easily produce the same results! For us this is life changing stuff.We still have daily work to do but it's really simple to follow. if you are serious about training your dog I highly recommend treasure coast barkbusters!This is the real thing results and method!
I’m very impressed ! I never thought I could change my dog behavior so rapidly! Learning dog language is the key! Big thanks to Marc for his help and made me understand the real relationship between me and my dog!
Though my family & I were not skeptical of what Marc could do with our pup, we certainly were not expecting to see results that day! Learning to speak your dog’s language is life-changing for your dog and the relationship you have with them. We finally feel in control of and understand our dog’s behavior. He’ll love your dog as his own. Very grateful for Marc!
Marc and Karen are friendly and professional. I am very pleased and impressed by their training strategies. Thank you for helping us overcome puppy problems and letting us fully enjoy puppyhood with our Bernedoodle!
Wonderful experience with Marc and our two dogs. I saw immediate improvement in their ability to listen and respect us as the Alphas of the house. The training methods are easy to follow and we are actually enjoying implementing them into our lives. Anxiety was a huge problem with both our dogs and after just one session they seemed much more relaxed and content. I would definitely recommend to any dog owner looking to have well mannered and happier dogs. I’m looking forward to working with them on leash manners and actually being able to take the dogs on walks without being dragged along and worrying about them barking and running after anything they see. Couldn’t be happier with the experience.
Four goldens, ages 1-7, the oldest was rescued because his owners couldn’t ‘handle’ him ... needless to say, I was a skeptic. After one session with Marc and Karen, I am back in control of my home. The goldens responded as if they had been waiting their whole lives to understand me. It’s been only 2 days and these guys are so obedient now!! No more pushing, pulling, yelling or crying! I’m posting two pictures... one of my laundry room that I ‘claimed’ ... you will see two goldens calmly waiting behind my invisible line for me to finish my work. The other is of my kitchen that I also ‘claimed’ ... when I opened the trash drawer, the old golden moved in, so I claimed that as well! I couldn’t be happier! Can’t wait for our next lesson when we get to go outside!
OMG I never in a million years thought I was going to be able to train my dog, thinking he was already 4 years old and extremely misbehaved I had little to no hope. I read a lot of reviews about Bark Busters... a lot!!! For days!!! and finally decided to give them a try... it is money back guaranteed if you don’t see it working for you on your first 3 hour visit... so why not... right? I first met with Karen, for a 3 hour initial visit that went very well, still a little skeptical i did feel it could possibly work and just decided to apply all the lessons learned and follow instructions given by Karen. If you don’t do this repeatedly with your dog it will never work! Is like everything... practice makes perfect! A few months after I started noticing my dog’s behavior was improving... little by little but I kept practicing with him and teaching him that I am the alpha in the house (and not him)! A few months after I moved to a new house with my boyfriend so I called Bark Busters again to come meet us both with my dog Bruno at the new place, this time Mark came down to see us. It’s been about a year after the first training and every single person that knew my crazy dog says he is a totally different dog now, he obeys now!!!! I open the door of my house and he doesn’t go running out which was my biggest fear before because one time i almost lost him!! I open the door now and he stays right next to me, he listens and follows instructions... Crazy!!! This investment was worth every penny!! Totally recommend Mark and Karen, they know what they are doing... and trust me... everyone that couldn’t stand my dog before... loves him now!!! Shocking!!! Thank you Karen and Mark!!
ANY behavioral problems you may be having with your dog, Marc and Karen can help! They will come to your home and help with your specific needs. My dogs behavior problems of 4 years were practically solved overnight!! I recommend this positive approach to everyone.
Karen and Mark are wonderful. They opened a new world of communication between us and our precious Dasher, our one year old Boston Terrier. Dasher became very challenging at seven months old, not listening to us and we were at our wits end. We contacted Karen and Mark and they taught and guided us to connect with Dasher using Bark Busters’ methods and now there is peace in our home. Dasher is still a puppy and full of puppy antics but he knows what is expected of him. The change in him is a miracle! Thank you to Karen and Mark!!
Maizy is a 16 month goldendoodle & Bentley is a 9 week Bernedoodle! Bentley will eventually be trained to be my daughter's emotional support dog, but first we have to get Maizy under control, so Bentley will start off on the right path!
Marc & Karen came into our home with such a positive & warm energy. What they were able to teach us in just a few hours will change our world forever! Marc was amazing with both dogs & has patience of Job! :) We have been doing our homework with both dogs on a daily basis & we all can tell a huge improvement, esp., with Maizy! Bentley is still such a puppy, but he is doing great with the behavior techniques!
We HIGHLY recommend Bark Busters!! I have even had small questions & Marc takes the time to text or call to help me through a situation.
We can't thank you, both, enough for your time & love you have for what you do! Our family is forever grateful!
OMG. It has only been a day since Mark and Karen helped us with Zena the youngest than Tucker and the oldest Toby. Truly amazing.With all the issues we were having with them they are doing outstanding. We still can't believe it. Mark and Karen we cannot thank you enough. You would be proud I have the voice down now. Lol
Gotta see this. Check out Bark Busters for specialized dog training. It is truly like a dog whisperer thing. AMAZING. It works instantly depending on the dog's mannerisms. We are trained immediately to be the leader of the dog.
They are in many countries. They started years ago in Australia. They are just about everywhere in this country.
Gotta problem? So worth the experience. It is practiced every day for the rest of the dogs life. Essential. If biting is one problem, this is the way to go.
If you are in Southeast FL, let me know here, and I will give you the telephone number of an advanced trainer. Call this husband and wife team, and you will be given the understanding of this practice over the telephone.
Bark Busters is AMAZING!!! They came out today to give our dog Murphy (German Shorthaired Pointer) and me a refresher course! We both needed a little tune up - and in less than an hour Murphy was a new dog! Back to the well-behaved pup he used to be! Thank you so much. We are ALL so much happier. I HIGHLY recommend Bark Busters to all dog owners! ��
Marc with Bark Busters and his program was amazing with our dog Niko!! Niko has always been a sweet dog but has had numerous behavior problems with recognizing us as the leaders of the house. Especially when it came to disciplining him when he was bad and he would just growl at us and snap his teeth in defiance.
After a few hours with Marc, Niko instantly improved on being walked with a leash and not walking ahead, also being called to sit next to me and not move. These exercises and more condition the dog to recognize our alpha position over him. What’s more, last night he jumped on the couch after he had a bath and laid on there (full knowing that was bad) and I got on his case and disciplined him like I usually do. But this time....NO growing back or snapping his teeth! We didn’t even train that part with him but he KNEW where his place was and he just sat there and listened. My wife and I couldn’t believe it!
Marc and his program has worked beyond ourexpectation and know he will be able to further train him in other areas using this system. And we know we can rely on Marc coming over to help us again if we ever need the help. Very much worth the money! Thank you again!!
I can't tell you how grateful we are that Marc came into our home and taught us how to communicate with our dogs, especially our oldest one Bear. Bear used to jump, charge the door, bark at guests, etc. Now that we can communicate he's almost an entirely different dog. It's definitely worth the time and the money to have complaint fur babies and a quite and happy home.
We have 2 nightmare puppies, German Shepherd mixed with Belgian Malinois brother and sister. They ran our home before Bark Busters arrived! In just hours, we regained control of our home and learned how to communicate with our monsters. 100% worth the time and money!
My husband and I just finished our Bark Busters training session with Marc and Karen for our two puppies Roxy and Remy, and we are BEYOND AMAZED. Before this, our puppies literally ran our house and everything we did was a battle with them. From non-stop barking in the crate, to barking while outside of the crate, to charging at the front door and jumping all over people, jumping on doors, digging, fighting, being wild in the house, and the list goes on and on. We couldn’t even watch TV without yelling at them every few seconds. Marc and Karen were patient and did an incredible job in teaching us to “speak dog” and properly communicate with our dogs so that they know WE are the leaders, and so that they understand and comply with what we want. Within the few hours they were here, my husband and I see a MIRACULOUS difference in our dogs. It’s seriously life-changing and I have no words. I’m so excited about what we learned and to continue reinforcing everything so that we maintain a peaceful home with amazing dogs!!!! Thank you! To anyone that is skeptical about Bark Busters, I was there too. But now that I have experienced it, I will vouch for them any day and it was worth every dollar!!! Don’t look anywhere else.

The support guarantee is valid for those areas where there is an active Bark Busters Therapist. A copy of your original receipt is required to receive on-going support. If you move to an area where there is not an active Bark Busters therapist, support will be provided via telephone and email. The support guarantee is only valid for the dogs listed on the receipt and is not transferable to another dog. If a dog passes away or is euthanized the support guarantee and contract is rendered null and void. The support guarantee is valid only for the primary address registered. The support guarantee is valid only for the adults listed on the receipt at the primary address. The guarantee is not a money back guarantee. The support guarantee is valid for business hours as provided by the therapist.
All Problems Covered: The support guarantee provides for ongoing, free assistance in dog behavior correction, no matter if the same problems reoccur, or if new problems arise.
The Support Guarantee Moves With The Dog: If for any reason your dog needs to be re-housed with a new family, the Bark Busters lifetime support guarantee is transferred to the new owner (transfer fee may apply), for the life of the dog provided the new location is serviced by a Bark Busters trainer. If the new location is not serviced by a Bark Buster trainer, the owner can request support in the form of email, phone or video chat (Skype, FaceTime or similar apps) from Bark Busters USA (transfer fee may apply).
* The One-year Bark Busters support guarantee applies if the re-housing is done within twelve (12) months of the date of the first lesson on the original receipt (transfer fee may apply). Clients can upgrade to the lifetime support guarantee for an additional charge. The new owner must produce the original receipt to receive support under the guarantee.
The Support Guarantee Moves With The Owner: If the owner moves to another location, the support guarantee continues to be valid, either for the life of the dog, or one year from the date of the first lesson, depending on the service purchased and provided the new location is serviced by a Bark Busters trainer. If the new location is not serviced by a Bark Buster trainer, the owner can request support in the form of email, phone or video chat (Skype, FaceTime or similar apps) from your original trainer or by Bark Busters USA if your trainer is no longer available. Clients who move to parts of the world where Bark Busters has locations are also covered.
Limitations of Cover: The guarantee may not be transferred to another dog. The guarantee is not a money back guarantee. If the dog is euthanised or the dog dies the guarantee is rendered null and void. All training advice must be adopted by the owner in order for the guarantee to remain valid. If the owner adopts an alternative form of training without prior discussion with their therapist this will render the guarantee null and void.
Over 28 Years of History: Bark Busters has grown to be the largest dog training company in the world, with over 1 million dogs trained. The lifetime support guarantee has been part of the company since 1989 when company founders, Danny and Sylvia Wilson, decided that it would help to significantly reduce the number of dogs that were being euthanized, and provide customers peace of mind for many years. The company is expanding rapidly in the USA and internationally, and can be counted upon to fully honor its guarantee.
