Read what our clients say about Bark Busters . . .


Our dog learned so much in such a short period of time. Sophie finally listens to us when there is no treat involved. We are so glad that we called Bark Busters! --Jackie K., Carpentersville


Snickers is a different dog! We already have recommended Bark Busters to our friends and neighbors. --Carmin M., Barrington


We were pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters. Other methods were not working. We definitely observed noticeable results by the end of the training. --Kelly W., Streamwood
 

Rick was excellent. He is a wonderful coach and has the patience of a saint. I think this system is so easy to use and it makes sense. All of my dogs have gained benefit and I feel I have them under control. --Beth Y., Carpentersville
 

I am looking forward to living more comfortably with Gus and my family. Rick was great! --Isminie B., Palatine

The difference in Dooley’s behavior is astonishing. Visitors to our home have truly been amazed by his good door manners. --Joy A., Palatine

This program is wonderful and well worth the cost. We have already recommended Bark Busters to our friends and neighbors. --Nancy H., Barrington, IL
 

We were surprised how well the dogs seemed to catch on. Eleanor doesn’t respond very well to treat training, so this method is great. I’ve tried a couple of different forms of training prior to this, but none of them left me as optimistic as Bark Busters. --Angela M., Palatine, IL
 

This was the best experience! --Kathy S., Palatine, IL
 

Addison was more well behaved than we’ve seen her in months – after only on hour! We can tell it will be more successful than anything else we’ve tried. --Sarah B., East Dundee, IL
 

What a difference in a short time! --Katie & Dan O., Schaumburg, IL

Molly began responding to us instantly! Any dog can do this! --Barbara K., Palatine, IL
 

I like the fact that it’s not reward-based or physical. I definitely believe this training is very beneficial! --Beth B., Carpentersville, IL
 

We especially like the non-physical correction and also having a one-on-one session in our home. We are very happy to have gone with this training as opposed to other training facilities. --Kim C., Palatine, IL
 

I have used other methods in the past, and this method was the easiest to use, with immediate results. Much less frustrating than other methods. Rick is a fabulous trainer. He was patient with us in getting the timing down, etc.—really took the time to be sure we were comfortable.  -- Leslie R., Algonquin, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers)

-- Susan P., Barrington, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) We could not believe the difference in our dog after the first day. We had a new dog! I found the training fascinating—the psychology of dogs is amazing. Rick was wonderful—I would highly recommend him!

-- Shari B., Carpentersville, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) I wanted to write to let you know how wonderful Roxy is with the training Bark Busters taught us. She does exceptionally well in the house, and now that it is warmer out, I have begun working with her more in the yards and on walks. She walks on the leash like a pro and watches me for what to do next. She waits at the bottom and top of the stairs until I descend or ascend; she sits at the doors until we cross the threshold and call her out; she sits at the crosswalks when I stop and only moves when I tell her to come—all without us even having to tell her. It is second nature. What a smart dog! All in all, I am so pleased with what Bark Busters taught us. I hear from so many people how well-trained she is. She is so much better than before we called you. Thanks so much for teaching us how to train Roxy.

-- Liz E., West Dundee, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Rick explained the technique in great detail and the reasoning behind it. We could tell later the first day that the techniques were impactful, and we have seen continued results. We have seen a dramatic change in Wrigley's behavior, as well as her demeanor. It has been a great success!

-- Megan A., Palatine, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) My dad is the best dog trainer EVER!

-- Linnea M., Arlington Heights, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Amazing! All dogs should go through this training!

-- Janice G., Algonquin, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) This was a learning experience for both the dog and myself. It helped me to understand the canine mind -- and how to get across to the dog the training we're learning. My dog started to listen to me -- the first time ever (she's 7 years old!).

-- Georgine B., Algonquin, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Bark Busters seems to be very effective, even on our stubborn terriers. It's a very reasonable and well thought-out system.

-- Dr. Lou K., Barrington Hills, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) My dog caught on very fast. Rick is very good at what he does and is very patient.

-- Lonnie S., Rolling Meadows, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Very impressed with the training methods -- they are not scary like some dog training. Very easy to understand and teach your pets. I gained a lot of confidence in the first lesson. I saw results the first day.

-- Colleen F., Carpentersville, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) The training was "eye opening." The trainer was great!

-- Janette G., Schaumburg, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Unbelievable! I thought Rocko was uncontrollable, but saw immediate results!

-- Laura K., Algonquin, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) This was enlightening, educational & enjoyable. We noticed results right away. Rick was excellent and very easy to understand.

-- Nicole G., Barrington, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Excellent initial results!

-- Jerry B., Hoffman Estates, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Sound logic, immediate results, informative presentation.... We now have hope for a happier home life with our dogs.

-- Jeff M., Arlington Heights, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Great way to train our dogs!

-- Steve B., Inverness, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) This was excellent -- effective! The trainer has a wonderful way of teaching you without making you feel dumb about training.

-- Barbara B., Barrington, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Quick, noticeable results. Our dog's behavior changed instantly.

-- Olivia B., Arlington Heights, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Our dogs picked up quickly on the training.

-- Andy B., Gilberts, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Amazing! Huge difference in behavior in a short time...

-- Mary F., Barrington, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Excellent! A huge change in behavior!

-- Nicole M., West Dundee, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) The training was great & my dog responded very well -- Rick was great!

-- Joyce D., Palatine, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) It's amazing how well they interpret dogs!

-- Yvonne K., Schaumburg, IL (Trainer: Karen and Rick Edstrom - Barrington, Palatine, and Algonquin Dog Trainers) Did I observe noticeable results by the end of the training? Absolutely!
