Joanne's techniques are amazing! She was so good with me and with Piper (since we know part of dog training is training the owner too)! Piper's behaviors have already started to change. We are forever thankful!
Today marks 2 weeks of training for the boys. They have been doing extremely well. They are responding really well to the commands. Feeding time has been a lot better. There are times that they will just stare at each other before they eat but we have not had any fights. Walks are way more enjoyable and I am proud to say they took to sleeping in their "room" like little champs the very first night. My husband says that is the best money we have spent in a long time. He is very impressed with how well behaved they are now. Thank you so much Joanne for helping me take control of our crazy boys!! Many thanks,Chris and Jolene Bryant
Joanne absolutely blew me away with how simply she transformed an out of control 1yr old chocolate lab into an obedient family member in just a short period of time. She came out on Sunday and worked with us for only a couple of hours. Today is Wednesday and this has been the easiest training ever. Brandy is doing great! Thanks!
Amazing!!! Day one I feel like I have new dogs. Joanne’s techniques are so simple yet effective. I’m very impressed with the results so far and can’t wait to keep using our new skills to make our fur babies feel more confident and comfortable with the humans now in charge.
Joanne’s Lifetime Support is amazing! We originally contacted Bark Busters 4 years ago, and Joanne helped us with our then 2 year old Pointer mix rescue, Daisy, and 4 year old Silver Lab, Dallas. Recently, Daisy has been showing some behavioral issues, and we knew it was time to call Joanne. Even though it had been 4 years, she returned my call immediately, and we made an appointment with the week. Joanne came by yesterday, and within an hour, we could already see a change for the better in Daisy’s behavior. We are so grateful for Bark Busters’ Lifetime Support and especially Joanne’s guidance. Her quick response, keen knowledge, and dedication is top notch!! A++
Joanne came out to help train our two dogs. We had problems with our dogs jumping, not walking well on leashes, and being distracted on walks. Joanne was very patient and kind during the whole process. She took the time to get to know us, and asses each individual dog to help address all of our concerns. She explained why they did what they and how to go about correcting it. Not only was it training for the dogs but as an owner she "trained" us as well to better improve how we interact with our dogs. In just one session there was a tremendious change already in how they were acting as long as we were using all the tools and knowledge Joanne provided to us. We will continue to use Bark Busters and recommend them to anyone in need of a little help!
Joanne has been working with our boy Chance for 2 years now and most recently our new guy Cooper since June. She is professional, a book of knowledge, and very personable. Joanne is quick to respond to any questions you may have and is very reliable. Having met Joanne as our pups were just puppies she is able to help assist with our dogs as they age and get set in their ways. I find comfort in knowing that Joanne will be with us in 6 months, a year, or several years down the road.
Joanne is a great dog trainer and people trainer. She not only worked with our puppy, but she also helpful with my kids and letting them be involved in helping train our dog. Joanne was very polite and helpful by answering all my questions that i needed to ask. Even when I called the next day with a couple more questions. she never hesitated to answer any of my questions. I highly recommend Joanne and Bark Busters.
Very thorough. Joanne explained everything in detail and allowed all family members the opportunity to model to ensure we were getting the steps correctly. Sophie is a work in progress as she is a puppy, but we have already seen a huge difference in her behavior
Joanne is a great dog trainer and people trainer. She not only worked with our puppy, but she also showed us how to set up our home to help with potty training and taught us how to best interact with our dog to get the best results. Every time Joanne came for a visit, our dog's behavior improved exponentially - from potty training, to walking on the leash to coming when called. She even consulted with us on how to get our cat to be less afraid of our new puppy. I highly recommend Joanne and Bark Busters.
Joanne is working with our 2 dogs and a brand new puppy. Her training techniques are great and easy. On day one my dogs are following the new rules. Who said you can't teach and old dog a new trick? Well you can, Joanne showed us patience. I'm so proud of my furry babies. Can't wait to see Joanne again. You can tell that Joanne knows what she is doing and is great in what she does.”
Joanne Rice is an amazing teacher and trainer. Her listening skills were awesome. Her techniques were easy and successful. In no time at all, our pup responded. I cannot believe how naturally this worked and we are so happy. Our puppy is happy too. I am so thankful! Joanne is organized, professional, and a true expert.
Hiring Joanne Rice is worth every penny!. We have two small dogs 10 & 11 years old. About a month ago I brought home a new puppy. He is a standard labradoodle and expected to reach 50 lbs. My goal was to learn how to have a well behaved larger dog. Our entire family was totally impressed in our first visit with Joanne. We have incorporated her training techniques and it has been a pleasure to have our new puppy. In the first month ( 8 -12 weeks old) he would wait for us to lead him out of the door, sit quietly when we prepared to let him out of his crate and potty training is going very well. Any accidents really have been people at fault not Bentley. The second month lessons have come along as well. He sits and lays down when asked, he comes when called and is learning how to be gentle with our older dogs. I look forward to learning more from Joanne on this adventure:))
After just one day with Joanne we saw an amazing improvement in our understanding of how to train our puppy and her response to the training. Before Joanne had even left our home our dog was responding to commands and paying attention to our cues regarding behavior. We implemented all the suggestions regarding digging and chewing and any accidents in the house and all those things have worked out perfectly. I did not expect the response from our dog to be so quick and successful and I am very impressed. Everything was explained quite well and the literature left with us, which we referenced often, was helpful with keeping us on the correct path. The training is firm but gentle and we are looking forward to our next session with Joanne to build on what we have all already accomplished. Thank you Joanne!
Joanne was great with our 9 month old Catahoula Leopard dog! We were having trouble with jumping, counter surfing, door manners and walking! She has learned so much in such a short period of time and I can’t wait to see how well she continues to do! If you are at your wits end I highly recommend Joanne
We are so impressed with Joanne and Bark Busters. We saw such a difference in our dogs from day one. We are amazed at how quickly some changes in our management of them made such a difference. Thank you Joanne!
So far we’ve only had 1 session but I see a pretty significant difference after a day! I have to review my materials tonight so that I do things the right way. There’s a lot of info to take in. Joann was very professional and I really appreciated her input. It was so nice to get reassurance about things we were doing well. This pup of mine is super smart, so I am glad we invested in proper training. Twelve years is a long time to have an animal that drives you nuts!
Joanne came today to help me with my pointer mix, Allie. Allie is a very strong dog. She loves to pull especially when she would spot another animal. Allie has pulled me down on the ground & would escape her collar & lease to get to other dogs. It created such a problem in our neighborhood.In just one day, Joanne trained me to handle my girl. I've been out with her several times today. Wow!! What a difference.I would highly recommend Joanne to come to your home & help you learn how to handle any issues that you may have with your dog. It definitely will make all the difference in the world. �

Joann has given us the dog we always wanted but didn't know how to make it happen. Ellie is a 3 yr old black lab with LOTS of energy. We had tried other training programs and even enrolled her in Camp Bow Wow to hopefully wear off some of that energy but it still did not give us a well behaved dog. Joann "trained" us that WE are the head of the pack and not Ellie with just a few simple tricks (that now seem very obvious). I could give you numerous examples of problems we were having with Ellie but the one that sticks out the most is that we could not sit down to dinner without Ellie barking for attention. This resulted in her being locked up and us becoming frustrated and feared we would ultimately return her to the Humane Society. Now dinner is a peaceful time together. Not only is Ellie well behaved but very affectionate and seems to be more calm and just plain happier to be at our side. I tell everyone with a dog that the Bark Buster program and Joann are well worth the money and an investment in your "family's" happiness. Thank you, Joann.
Joann came to work with me and my one year old lab, Casey, yesterday. She was such a pleasure to work with! Her instructions were easy to understand and implement. I saw a big difference in Casey after just one session and her behavior continues to improve as we complete the "homework". I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone who wants to improve their dog's behavior. It's a wonderful program. Thank you, Joann!
Joann saved the day. She provided us with excellent training for our two Saint Bernards. Great follow up program. We are very happy with the results with our puppy and five year old. We Highly recommend Joann.
Joanne came to our house 2 days ago...I see a difference in our Dixie already. I should say I see a difference in how we respond to Dixie and how she responds to us!! It is all about consistency and being in the moment. Looking forward to building on our relationship with Dixie....with guidelines from Joanne.
Joanne with Bark Busters is awesome! She helped us train our last two Morkie puppies. BobbieSox was 9 months old when we contacted Joanne--she had developed a bad habit of jumping up on people. Within 15 minutes, Joanne taught us how to break that habit. She worked with us again when my 3 month old, Josie, kept soiling in her crate. Joanne taught us tricks to break that habit immediately, and also worked with us to teach Josie to "stay" and stop nipping. I highly recommend Joanne if your dog is having behavioral problems, or if you just want a well-trained dog.
Thank you so much Joanne! Shaka did a great job today. He is learning very quickly. One of my co-workers asked me about the training today. She has three dogs. I will give her your contact information tomorrow but told her to check out the Bark Buster website. Honestly, I was so excited about the training that I told several co-workers about you and Bark Busters. I am so excited to see Shaka's behavior improve. I bought him the Kong Wobbler today and tested it out this evening. He loves it. The training is not only helping Shaka's behavior but it is also helping Darryl and myself become better owners/parents.
Go Bark Busters! This is a very good company and I've learned sO much from them. I highly recommend Bark Busters because they are very professional and very knowledgeable about dog training, not only that but the the results are mind blowing. Thank you Joanne,We Appreciate all your helpThe Smith Family
Joanne has worked wonders with our pups - Daisy & Ralphie. We came in with what felt like a laundry list of things we wanted to work on. By our third session we felt like we'd accomplished all of the things on our list. Our dogs are much more calm and behaved around people and other dogs. They listen better and walk much better now on their leashes!
