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!
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. Lolread more
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.
Again, you must witness this.read more
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! ��read more
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!!read more
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.read more
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!read more
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.read more
