I hired Bark Busters over 4 years ago to help me with my dog, Lucy. She was a rescue and needed a lot of training especially with separation anxiety. Lately she has been showing behavior issues around this issue again so I called Bark Busters and Ryan is now the dog trainer in my area. I was very impressed with how responsive he was to helping me immediately over the phone with some tips to start right away with Lucy. He followed up with a visit within the same week. Ryan spent about an hour with me reviewing the training techniques I learned over 4 years ago but didn't continue once Lucy started to show some improvement. I can see from my experience and time with Ryan that it is most important for me to stick to these commands and continue training with my dog each day. Ryan assures me that both myself and Lucy will be much happier when Lucy learns that I am her lead at all times. Thank you, Ryan for the refresher...I'm most grateful for your encouragement, patience and time well spent with Lucy and I. Susan

I reached out to Tom at the recommendation of our vet Dr. Toth who had used his services. I could not believe what we achieved in 4 hours time. Never thought it possible and yes we the leaders of the pack still have a lot of work to do, but Tom showed us the way to get control of the situation. What an awesome investment we've made in having well behaved pets. Nancy and Kevin Neal -

We highly recommend Bob & Judy Padgett with Bark Busters. They are very knowledgeable and truly care about helping you achieve the best results with your dog. They are always available to help in between visits as well, accessible via phone and/or email. They have been committed to helping us and our dog, Ollie, from the day we first met them. Their dedication and excellent service hasn't diminished in the slightest. They love what they do and it shows. I would recommend Bob & Judy to anyone needing a dog trainer!! It is worth every penny!! We also feel the level of training you receive from home training far outweighs what you might achieve in a public (multi-dog) class setting. Jason & Sheree Hyde Canton, GA

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!!!!
