I was so impressed by Mason and Estaffany! They were so easy to work with and they made my Soba so happy! She warmed up to them right away and took direction beautifully! I adopted her and had her only a few days before we had our first session (which I highly recommend to prevent bad habits developing in a new environment) when adopting! I was so excited and so proud of how well Soba responded to the rules and the conditions we set! You would never guess that she had a rough background or had years of other environments with previous owners! I use a walker, and Soba is very sensitive to me, almost like a service dog's instincts.... and she responded beautifully to the new rules and behaviors I established with the help of this team!!! They are awesome and truly want the best for your pet! I would recommend them for any owner, new or experienced-- you can't go wrong with them! They are awesome!

Mason has been so amazing to work with and has helped my 4 year old black lab mix Moonie SO much with a variety of issues. I saw an immediate improvement in her behavior as soon as we started our lesson. My dog has had some problems meeting new people, often showing fear and sometimes aggression, but Mason’s training exercises helped with that straight away. I was really shocked at how calm she became and how her friendly side truly came out even with people she was just meeting for the first time. She also had severe separation anxiety and Mason worked with us to find a solution that worked for me and my dog. Despite the fact that we needed to work around specific tendencies my pup has and constraints with our home, Mason consistently gave us new things to try and worked with us until we found a solution, and now Moonie is calmer than ever when she’s home by herself. Mason’s communication has been incredible. He is always available to answer my calls and he is extremely thorough with suggestions for exercises and solutions to problems. I cannot recommend his services enough.

Mason is awesome!! He did an outstanding job in explaining dog behaviors and to help me understand what I had to do as the owner to make a more relaxing environment for both of us. It didn't take long for Graycie to warm up to Mason and change behaviors on the things I pointed out. She kind of made it look like I was making things up about here the way she responded to Mason and myself just in a matter of minutes after his arrival. Since the initial visit I had, I've been doing the homework daily and its paid off tremendously. Most of the challenges I wanted to address have been corrected. I definitely would recommend Mason to others. Thanks Mason!!!

Mason came in our home and really helped us with our 4 year old German Shepherd, Junie. Within a few hours, Junie was relaxed with Mason, understanding her training, and not pulling on her leash when we took her for a walk. She is aggressive and has a hard time meeting new people as she is territorial in our home. I was shocked at the progress in such a short time and can’t wait to continue her training so she can be a happier girl! Highly recommend Mason and bark busters to help your dog.

Mason is amazing!! I cannot express how amazed I was with the work Mason did with my 8 month old standard poodle Haifa after just 1 lesson!! He was able to show me how to take control & stop the negative behaviors. He got me to really understand how the mind of a dog works and how to communicate and interact with them that harmonizes and aligns with this born given nature. The techniques & exercises he taught me are simple , quick and very effective. I saw Haifa’s issues (jumping, barking, leash pulling, counter surfing, craziness at the front door…just to name a few) just basically stop after one session!! These philosophy & techniques of Bark Busters is genius! But it’s Mason’s approach teaching that make those concepts work. What a great teacher & coach! I’m so very happy! Thank you Mason!

Mason was extremely helpful. He worked with me and my three teenagers so we understood the fundamentals of communicating with our dogs. He spent a lot of time understanding our concerns and provided a lot of information on nutrition for our rescue who was under weight. Mason went through several scenarios so we could practice the techniques. Food aggression was our biggest concern with our rescue, and with Mason’s guidance, we have been able to feed the dogs in same room without incident. Thank you so much! We now have the resources to provide our dogs a calm, clear environment that they can thrive in, together.

I have 2 difficult dachshunds with aggression among other issues, and 1 frenchie puppy. I was tired and overwhelmed and decided to invest in training. I couldn’t be happier with Mason and the wealth of knowledge he brought. He was patient, and made sure that I understood why the issues were happening and how to correct reactive and aggressive behavior. I’m so blown away by the immediate results. My dogs were able to go on a walk without pulling, and we went through various exercises and triggers to begin correcting the behavior. Mason made sure that my dogs were responding to my corrections and taught me to communicate more effectively with my dogs. I really can’t recommend Mason enough!

Our Standard Schnauzer puppy was getting out of control. Biting, nipping, barking, jumping everywhere in the house. While walking, he used to pull the leash very strongly and get overly excited when spotting other people or dogs. We've done some research an decided to call Bark Busters. Mason Erwin came to our home and spent 4 hours with the whole family. He basically trained us and showed us how to handle Otto. After explaining us the behavioral challenges and peculiarities all dogs have, he showed us the corrections we needed to do inside the house. Also, we went for a walk in the nearby the park and trails where we usually walk Otto. Otto was also experiencing separation anxiety. Very disruptive, because we couldn't leave him alone and couldn't have even 6 straight hours of sleep. In sum, we were vey discouraged and frustrated because we couldn't help out our beloved Otto. After the first session with Mason, Otto's behavior changed significantly. No more pulling, no more biting, no more nipping. Walking with him was very pleasant. Separation anxiety was substantially lower. He now stays in his crate at night without barking or whining. We called Mason once more to address a couple of remaining issues; e.g. barking aggressively at other dogs while walking. Once again, Mason's guidance was very effective and Otto stopped the undesirable behavior almost immediately. We are grateful and impressed with Mason's skills and training. It has been a game changer.

Bandit was very receptive to the training. The information about how dogs think is very helpful and insightful. I look forward to seeing the full development of my fur baby from this training.

Mason was attentive and took time to listen to our concerns with Liesl. Training at home provided additional value. The exercises were well thought out and tailored for Liesl's behavior which was exactly what we wanted. Thank you!

Mason is personable and patient, the instruction is simple and logical. He teaches effective communication which has resulted in a significant positive difference in my pup’s behavior after the first visit. Also, I now have the tools to continue to reinforce and build good behavior. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

Mason arrived on time for our appointment. Our dog Tex was immediately at ease with him, and drawn to his friendly, yet commanding voice. His instruction for us was so simple, but so effective..... almost immediately. We couldn't believe it! One of the issues that we were having with our dog Tex, was corrected that same day! It was amazing that just by saying things in a certain tone and our mannerisms, would get the quick results that we did. We had requested another pamphlet of instructions from Mason the day of our appointment, but he didn't have an extra with him. A day or two later he took the time to drop one off at our house, and stayed to find out how the training was going! So kind and professional. We would highly recommend Mason and Bark Busters!

We are very happy with the exercises and style that Mason brought. He is very knowledgeable and both of our dogs immediately responded to the instructions and corrections. Definitely a good template for us to implement - more structured than any other trainer I've worked with! Thank you!

After learning a few of the training techniques, I could see 100% improvement in my dog already just after 2 short hours. I feel as if this training will definitely get the job done.

Noticed a difference in behavior just a few minutes after demonstration. We also received homework to do. Mason left a line of communication open and I look forward to seeing the improvement in our sweet baby Koda.

I adopted a rescue dog from our local shelter with some really bad habits. I had another trainer who told me to "just live with it". I knew that was impossible. After just 3 hours with Donna, Lucy and I are making tremendous progress. I am including myself, because I needed training in how to communicate with Lucy. Donna had us do some exercises, and Lucy responded right away. It's like she was a different dog! She no longer terrorizes other dogs on leash or barks uncontrollably when we leave the house. Never, never give up on your dog -- call Donna at Bark Busters!

My husband came home with a 9 week old puppy in January and boy were we in over our heads! After a lot a research and much consideration, we decided to go with Bark Busters for our puppy training & obedience lessons. Donna was a miracle worker! She was extremely patient with me, my husband, and our energetic puppy. She equipped us with ALL of the tools we needed to get Kashew under control and on a schedule that worked for us. Some of the issues she helped us with were: pulling on his leash, getting distracted on walks, chewing and digging on our outside plants, barking for food/attention, and various commands. One of the main reasons we decided to go with Donna & Bark Busters was their lifetime commitment. After your initial sessions, we were instructed to call Donna with any questions or problems that we had. Donna has returned all of our phone calls, spoke to me as long as I needed, and helped guide me through all issues that we have had with our sweet pup. I highly recommend Bark Busters if you are looking for private dog training!

Donna did some amazing work with my 1 year old pug, Ernie. I was very overwhelmed with him and Donna transformed everything for me! The biggest issues were his separation anxiety and just getting him to listen to me in general! Donna gave me tools that were immediately effective in getting him to listen and his separation anxiety is mostly gone as of now, which is a HUGE relief! Donna can help you with ANY problem. She has a solution for everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Donna is a magician! I have 2 rescue shepherds and Donna is helping me to socialize and train them. My adult rescue ran upstairs and was too scared to come back down, even for food. Donna miraculously coaxed him down with chicken and helped build his confidence so that he doesn't get "stuck" again. Moreover, she showed me how to coax him down. Bark busters in home training is amazing for giving owners the skill set they need to make the training "stick" once the expert trainers leave. The training is reward based and makes the learning fun for the pups so that they look forward to learning new skills.

We contacted Bark Busters after our three dogs had turned into a pack and we were struggling to get back control. Donna came out twice and the results have been incredible. We worked on leash walking, doorbells/answering the doors, and commands. We went from having to crack the door open for visitors to being able to open the doors while the dogs wait in the living room. Our walks are infinitely better, and my husband and I feel like we have control again. Donna is willing to answer any and all questions and had great suggestions for any of our issues. We have and will continue to recommend her to any friends looking for a trainer.

My husband and I recently adopted a rescue puppy. We needed help with basic household manners and commands. Cooper stays in the city during the week but goes with us to the country on weekends. The training we needed was everything from housebreaking, no jumping up, walking easily on a leash, getting in and out of a car, come when called - to teaching Cooper how to comfortably ride in a ranch mule. I called Donna and she has been great! There was an immediate improvement in Cooper's manners after just one session. We have met a couple of times and Donna has shown me how to work with Cooper on all of the issues that concern us. Her methods are gentle, not scary to Cooper, and they work!! I look forward to a continuing relationship with Donna - and through her methods having a well trained, wonderful family dog! Cooper and I both love and respond well to her system! So glad I called Donna!

Donna Smith was very helpful for the training and behavioral issues we were experiencing. Within 20 minutes of our first session, my dog was calm and receptive to the training methods she introduced. We were given easy to follow techniques and instructions that have made a significant different in our everyday lives. She is always readily available via email and telephone to answer any questions or concerns that may arise. Thank you so much Donna for all of your help and support!

The training and trainer, Donna Smith, were excellent. It was a real eye opener about really understanding my dogs and learning simple techniques that helped me to communicate with my dogs. I would recommend this training to anyone without hesitation. Now, it is up to me to carry through what I have learned. It truly works.
