Ryan @ Bark Busters is THE best!! He was able to help train us and our new lab rescue pup, Sophie, in just a couple of visits. I highly recommend anyone considering working with Bark Busters to consider the full year plan. We had Ryan out for a refresher training session to reinforce some training commands - with fantastic results. Sophie now comes on command and holds her sit/stay for several minutes. Awesome job, Ryan!

I started working with Ryan McPherson of Bark Busters North Atlanta in January of this year. I have a three year old JRT mix who was struggling with seperation anxiety, fear of thunderstorms/fireworks and excessive barking inside the house (especially at the front door). Ryan came out and explained the Bark Busters method and that night we began training. I was shocked to see the immediate changes in my dog Gracie in just the first hour that Ryan spent working with us. She responded to his training methods (changing me into the alpha female of our house) so quickly and by the end of the first session I was shocked with what she was alreay able to do! I took her to a friend's house two days after our first training session and my friends were already commenting on how well Gracie was behaving (I hadn't even told them we were had hired Ryan to help). We continue to need more time and there are still things to work on but Ryan has been great about following up, coming back for follow-up visits and giving me and Gracie all the support we need to address our issues :)

Tom really helped us with our 8month old Golden Retriever puppy. She was extremely hyperactive and sometimes aggressive. Tom worked with her and us for about 3 hours and by the end of the training, Lily knew her place in our "pack" and respected us like I have never seen. Now only 2 days later, she is still respecting us so well and is a pure joy to be around! Thank you Tom and Bark Busters for the immediate results!!

Ryan showed up on time at our door to be joyfully welcomed by 3 90+ lb dogs. Immediately, the training began. Ryan explained every step carefully as he navigated his way thru the furry welcome committee. Finally we sat down and Ryan began a thorough introduction of what BarkBusters does, how they do things differently, and why they're the best. He spent hours training me AND my dogs. He showed me how the dogs should behave in any normal household scenario (doorbell, going up the steps, etc) and taught me the tools and techniques needed to turn my canine crew into the well behaved pack that they are now. Thanks Ryan!

Max is an awesome trainer. I'm so glad that I picked him. He did what other trainers could not do with my dog. My dog did everything right in the house but out in public he was an entirely different dog. He would break his neck trying to get at other dogs. Pull on the leash if he even saw another dog or squirrel. Max immediately gave me the tools that I could use to correct my dog. He even met me in the park to have my dog experience other dogs and how I needed to control him around others. Something other trainers would not help me do. All the techniques he gave me worked right away, it was pretty amazing to see! You will be extremely happy if you use Max to train your dog. Highly recommended! -- Janice, Atlanta, GA

I took in a larger size dog and realized I had no idea how to train her. Tom Zebrowitz was awesome. He gave me tips on potty training that I NEVER would have thought of myself. He really helped me understand how a dog thinks thus giving me a better ability to train her.I highly recommend him to anyone having issues with their dogs! Whether its jumping, digging, potty training, aggression. separation anxiety, or just basic commands I have complete faith he can take care of it!

We have four dogs and from time to time we all need to learn new things and refresh ourselves. Max explains how dogs think so we can think like them and lead the pack. Now going to walk is fun, we don't have chaos when the doorbell rings and they all come when we call them. Miracles all. Brought our family together!

Max Alligood has totally changed my dog. She has made so much improvement. Max was really great with my dog and patient with both of us. I wish I would have known about Max and Bark Busters years ago!

Tom trained our two poodles and at the end of the first training session, my husband and I could already see a difference in our dogs. We had issues with passive aggressive behavior, excessive barking, not responding to simple commands like "come". We are still amazed that now we have well-behaved furry children. Tom is great with the dogs and with their owners too. We recommend him without reservation. His telephone number is 404-502-5511...give him a try..you won't regreat it. Well worth the investment for a lifetime of well-behaved dogs.

cannot tell you how much Bob and Judy Padgett did for us in just ONE session! My dog was suffering from separation anxiety and when I would leave the house he would pace, bark, howl, whine and chew the house up. After t heir FIRST session with me, I learned the right techniques to change the behavior, and within one week I now have a dog who goes on the bed and lies down when I leave! This is amazing and I can't thank them enough! I love when they come back to see the progress he has made, and to tweak some new items that may come up! Bob and Judy, I love you, and I LOVE Bark Busters!!!!!!! Wendy

We love our animals but wanted to train our 18 month Miniature Pinscher to be less aggressive with strangers. We called Bob & Judy Padgett and have been amazed with the quick response from Lucy. They understand dogs and their owners. We have followed their advice very closely and are extremely happy. Lucy is too - she's more at ease and seems much happier now that we undestand her better. Absolutely delighted with the results. Great value - easy and quick results.

Tonight was our first session with Bob and Judy of Bark Busters. I cannot even begin to express the relief I am feeling now that we have their guidance. They understand people, they understand dogs and they are so patient (and fun) as they pass that knowledge on to you. What they helped us to accomplish in two short hours we've, been struggling with for months. Please know the price is absolutely competetive and I'm already sure it's going to be more than worth it. Thank you Bob and Judy!!!!

Tom Zebrowitz is amazing!! This training is very practical and it makes sense! Its better than any other method!!! Tom takes his time and explains things and answers any questions you have!! He was extremely patient with my husband and I and our 3 dogs!! Also, he was very understanding because we had a last minute plumbing emergency so my husband and the plumber were in and out and he never rushed us!! Its great finally being able to communicate with our four legged friends!! We're now striving to be just like Tom!!

Training with Bark Busters was a great experience :) Both I and my dogs learned so much. We now have a better understanding of each other and a better functioning household. And just like a previous reviewer, I too have a fearful dog who has serious issues with people. She is a rescue who was once involved in dog fighting. But Tom Zebrowitz was able to address her issues and she is now a better socialized dog which even my vet has noticed. I would HIGHLY recommend Bark Busters to anyone having behavioral problems with their dogs! 2 thumbs way up :D

We can't say enough good things about Tom and the BarkBusters method!He was patient with us and our dogs,and helped us become the pack leaders we need to be. Granted we still need practice, but we are on the right track now. Us and the dogs are much happier now. Its so nice to look out the window and watch them play together, instead of watching to make sure they are not fighting! If you are having problems with your dogs, I highly recommend Tom Z. and Barkbusters! Thanks Tom, Sandi and Billy Powell
