Mary Garrison Dog Training

--Jeanie M., Grayslake,IL
I have seen immediate improvement in her (dog's) behavior, especially walking on a leash and barking at and jumping on people when they come to our door. The trainng makes so much sense. It is amazing that it is not more common!


--Aliza P., Buffalo Grove,IL                                                                                                                                                                                  We noted immediate improvement in our dog's behavior. It is a relief to have a single, solid method to go by for dog training rather than trying to put together bits and pieces of advice from others.

--Shawna S., Deerfield, IL                                                                                                                                                                                Mary and Mick were terrific. They took plenty of time to help us work with Daisy and explained the techniques clearly. Mary was available for follow-up calls, and came by for a quick check-in, too. I am confident (and relieved) to know they will be with us throughout this process.


--Arlene M., Lake Zurich,IL                                                                                                                                                                               Mary was wonderful! Results were seen before Mary left. My brother came to visit within two days of Mary's visit - he couldn't get over the difference in Nicholas. He's still talking about it!

--Sherry Z., Wauconda,IL                                                                                                                                                                               Morgan was a rescue dog that had a couple of severe "issues." After one session with Mary, we saw dramatic results. It was actually amazing how powerful the "BAH" word is!

--Janet P., Grayslake,IL                                                                                                                                                                                       We were thrilled to see such immediate results. Mary gave us practical advice and clear instructions that we can continue to use at home. With practice, we hope to improve so that the training methods become second nature to us all. Thank you!

--Grace C., vet tech, Lindenhurst Animal Hospital, Lindenhurst,IL                                                                                                          Mary did a great job at showing my husband and I what to do with our dog. The way she explained everything made your way of training very understandable and made sense. "Trinity" understood immediately what was going on...this will definitely help my dog. Thank you!

--Diane and Bob M., Long Grove,IL
Mary has a lot of dedication and patience with us and our dog, Nikko, and gives us the time we need. We like the program because the approach is kind, firm and quick. But what we like the most is that it is in our home environment where the problems are...our dog responded very quickly.


--Julie C. Byers, D.V.M. Grand Animal Hospital, Gurnee,IL                                                                                                                     Dexter was calm and compliant in Mary's company. We saw an immediate response to the "BAH" correction...we hope to continue training towards helping Dexter become the family pet we know he can become."


Great results, especially with the doorbell and front door. Mary was very interesting and fun to work with...she obviously believes in the program.

-- Stacy Walsh, Lincolnshire, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
I would recommend Bark Busters because I saw great results in 3 hours with Mary. I can't wait to see what practice does in 3 weeks!!

-- Rebecca Rickert, Gurnee, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Easy to understand and employ with my dog, I saw results....convenient.....respectful of the animal.

-- Julie Lucansky, Mundelein, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
I am amazed at the progress. No punishment! Great idea. Definitely, very happy with results in short time span.

-- Mike Byrne, Buffalo Grove, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
We are looking forward to continuing our training with Fletcher so that we can keep up with fun walks and eliminating his behavior issues:) Thanks Mary.

-- Heidi & Paul Hoffman, Vernon Hills, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary gave us the tools to train our very "springy" Springer Spaniel to listen to and obey commands. We, our small children and our cats are incredibly thankful.

-- Alyson Antonio, Lake Villa, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
It made our dog much more livable.

-- Debbie Wolff, Grayslake, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
We were very happy with our trainer and felt very comfortable. Even though it hasn't been that long, my husband and I have already seen improvements. We are very happy with the techniques and the way they were explained to us. We have already told friends and family about Bark Busters.

-- Sheri Gilford, Buffalo Grove, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
I noticed results right away. When my father-in-law came home from work that evening he said how much calmer and well behaved Larry was acting. It has only been 5 days since Mary's visit and Larry is so much more well behaved than before.

-- Megan Collins, Lake Forest, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Amazing change in 2 hours. Very simple and clear. The voice commands and collar were effective and humane. We need to get used to this to make it 2nd nature and automatic. I would recommend the system because of its' simplicity and effectiveness.

-- Charles Nesbitt, Vernon Hills, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
We really liked how Mary asked us what we wanted from these training sessions and did not judge us by our response. She focused on the things we wanted. Also, I never got the sense of Mary using "little dog" syndrome in her training. We took our first dog to a class and the trainer seemed only to be interested in the larger breeds. Mary seemed very interested in Willie himself. While pricey, the one on one training was invaluable. Have always brought home puppies in the past, so working with a 2 year old rescue dog, we were very cautious about training techniques.

-- Cheryl Prentice, Grayslake, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Sessions are very helpful and positive. Mary spends as much time with us as we need. Thank you.

-- Lenette Sadek, Vernon Hills, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
We have been through numerous classes that are treat based and we like this method better.

-- Marge Hudson, Highland Park, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Our children understood and benefited from the training. Clue seemed to pick up on the techniques. The training was personal and applicable to our everyday experience. In home with entire family was definitely beneficial.

-- Kim and Tom Keefe, Gurnee, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
From day one we applied these techniques and it was noticeable at the end of the training. Did not like the "bah" at first, but it gave us the results we were expecting in the end. My husband really enjoyed the training and spent a lot of time applying these techniques.

-- Angel Saavedra, North Chicago, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary was great from day one, we felt very comfortable with her. I was ready to get rid of our dog, it was so bad before we started with Bark Busters. Now we love him. It was very nice that Mary would come to our home and that she was always available for the life of our dog. Our marriage was in trouble because I wanted to get rid of Grizzly and my wife was bound to hang with him. Thanks for saving our marriage and our dog.

-- Debrah and Jeff Haney, Fox Lake, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
We were very impressed with Mary and the Bark Busters method. We cannot believe the change in Murphy. He comes immediately when called, he sits and stays at the door before entering the house. No jumping at the door or scratching at the screen to get in, he heels when walking and is no longer bothered by open garage door. He sits in the yard and is no longer running around like a nervous wreck. He is relaxed and seems much happier. Family and friends have noticed a big difference.

-- Dennis and Joyce Swiater, Vernon Hills, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
I was very nervous at the beginning because I really want dogs that behave and are enjoyable for us and our guests. After being instructed and lots of practice, I felt so relieved and more in control. The immediate results were amazing! We walked the dogs without them pulling and with minimal barking that stopped when we used the "Bahhh!" Wow!

-- Terry and Kristi Knull, Grayslake, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
The change by the end of the training was remarkable. I have since been recommending Bark Busters to everyone I know who has trouble with their dog. I was desperate for help when I called Bark Busters. The difference it has made for us was amazing and worth every penny.

-- Andrea Goeman, Libertyville, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Practice makes perfect. Both Elway and Payton have improved in such a short time, really pleased with your program, Thank you so much.

-- Bill and Christine Husko, Wauconda, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Basic common sense to training. Based on understanding dogs and how they think. The "bah" sound even worked in the car, right away. I bark and Oliva stops.

-- Kathryn Holl, Gurnee, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary did an excellent job of going over the techniques. Payton responded immediately to direction in some of the areas we were having concerns. The natural technique follows our own personal philosophy. We giggled a lot and found the sound technique to be very interesting at how quickly Payton responded to the Grrr.... We've been sharing our experiences with others already. Mary has followed up with us and it is a work in progress with Payton!

-- Mindy Lehtman, Buffalo Grove, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary is very patient with her students! Both dogs responded to the training - but one is very stubborn! We both had fun and found the training very interesting. We've already recommended three friends. Mary is an excellent teacher - easy to understand and follow.

-- Pat Marshall, Long Grove, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Practice, practice, practice. Having in home training allowed for Mary to help me get it right, we both benefited (Annie and me). Although the Bah command does not come natural for humans, Annie really responds to it and knows it's for her, which helps when you have small children and you find yourself saying no all the time. It's a nonviolent training technique that puppies respond to....the key is consistency and making them use their brains to make good choices. It does work.

-- Judy Brown, Grayslake, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Very pleased, Mary was through and provided tons of great exercises. I was skeptical of the "bah", but I'm walking away very impressed with how it works. It was great to see Daisy react quickly and I LOVE the guarantee. Mary was incredibly personal and also candid in training us as well as the dog.

-- Cory and Dawn Blake, Buffalo Grove, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary answered all of our questions and provided pictures and handouts. Results....yes! Both dogs DID NOT rush the front door, which was a big issue at first. Frito was walking great on leash and really listened to our commands. I didn't expect results so quickly and without hands on corrections, it was AMAZING! We got a lot of good tips and advise, interesting, helpful information, we smiled and laughed through 3/4 of the training. I have tried other trainers and methods but nothing seemed to really work. I love Bark Busters methods and the dogs respond! It actually works.

-- Pam and Irene Brunk, Lake Villa, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Front door training was excellent. I look forward to having guests. Very effective methods. I noticed a big change in Fritter with each segment of training. I can't wait to work with Fritter and take him to fun places we can both enjoy.

-- Lori Marshall, Round Lake Beach, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
All techniques were very simple and common sense. We were absolutely amazed!! Incredible results and we look forward to more in the future. We really liked that it worked with praise rather than physical corrections.

-- Cathy Malinger, Hawthorn Woods, IL (Trainer: Mick and Mary Garrison - South Central Lake County Dog Trainer)
Mary has a lot of dedication and patience with us and our dog, Nikko, and gives us the time we need. We like the program because the approach is kind, firm and quick. But what we like the most is that it is in our home environment, where the problems are ... our dog responded very quickly.
