"Beautiful presentation - really listened and took the time to understand our concern and situation. Thank you for usch clear directions. The explanation was delivered in a way that was easy to understand. Rachel was wonderful, very professional and made us all very comfortable right away. I wish I did this sooner! I am looking forward to practicing with my dog and getting more education and help on our next visit." --Alecia, Albany

"Easy rapport with Rachel and it all seems so logical! Tucker was very tuned in. I'm used to using treats, treats and more treats! There are times when I just may not have a pocket full -- I like this way of communicating my wishes better. I like that Rachel had useful products to recommend but was in no way pushy about my purchasing them." --Marsha, Galway

"We had a very good visit with Rachel. She was very informative and I learned several things to help Juliette. She was excellent!" ---Ivy, Rotterdam

"I am amazed at the difference in Henry after one session. I can't thank you enough!" ---Karen, Selkirk

"Rachel was very patient explaining the techniques. I was amazed to see my 3 year old Lab finally walking with a loose leash! I have wanted to have my dog walk without a prong collar, and the voice command that Rachel taught me worked! My trainer put me at ease even when I was anxious about this new experience." ---Lorie, Averill Park

"Rachel did an excellent job with training techniques and visual displays. Casey responded very well to commands by the end of the session. I should have used Bark Busters a long time ago." ---Jane, Clifton Park

"I was really impressed with Rachel and the Bark Busters techniques, and was amazed at the difference in just one lesson." ---Mona, Latham

"Everything flowed from beginning to end. Peanut went from nervous to relaxed and happy by the end of the visit. Other trainers wanted me to pin my 5 lb Chihuahua when he was aggressive! This technique works 1000 times better and isn't mean or invasive. We learned a ton of useful information. Many of our neighbors pets could use it!" ---Amanda, Watervliet 

Bark Busters training is ideal for: aggressive behavior, basic obedience, chewing, digging, jumping up, nuisance barking, pulling on the leash, puppy training, separation anxiety, toileting in the house, and much more!
