We have only positive things to say about our experience with Patrick Logue and Bark Busters. We could see results immediately, while Patrick was with us, and now, two weeks after our in home lesson, we continue to see that following Patrick's suggestions has helped with establishing new behaviors for our recently adopted adult dog. The in home approach is a good idea, helpful in establishing behavior when someone comes to the door, and, going in or out of doors with your dog. We took a walk outside during our lesson and I am still delighted with how good our dog is when we go out for a walk. I like that Patrick genuinely wants us to be successful , and I feel certain that I can call or email him with questions or concerns, and he will respond quickly.
Patrick is phenomenal! Our two Morkie pups are, or should I say were, very high energy and excitable; they were barking and running for the door whenever some rang the doorbell, as well as barking at every sound they heard outside. After helping us see what we were doing wrong and giving us the tools to correctly take control and communicate with our puppies, they were very calm and relaxed. We highly recommend training with Patrick!
Patrick came into our home with knowledge, professionalism, and overall trust. My wife and I wanted our little Romeo to learn from the best and we feel Patrick and Bark Busters is just that, also making it very enjoyable and easy to understand once the training ended. Thank you for helping and we highly recommend his services!
Bark Busters training worked extremely well for my pup, Milo, even on the first session!! I feel very confident, especially with the follow up support, that Milo and I will continue to be successful with his training. He is able to fully listen to me and walk normally by my side on the leash. Previously, he would dart ahead, drag me, chase lizards, and freak out over other dogs. Now we have hope for bringing out and about without fear of him getting out of control! Thank you!!!
We had Patrick come to us a little over a week ago to help us with our 1 year old dog Luigi. Luigi is a great dog who is filled with lots and lots of energy. We were hoping Patrick would be able to show us how to deal with his constant barking and his jumping on people. As soon as Patrick came to our house I could sense his calmness. He sat down and first shared all of his knowledge with us. He talked to us about how to best communicate with our dog and teach him how to be calm. He then showed us several scenarios and techniques on how to best respond to Luigi and his behavior. I have to say that within that first session I was quickly impressed at the change in Luigi's behavior. All the more impressed that he was responding to us without us using any treats. Just the skills and positive reinforcement we discussed. Patrick encouraged us to continue practicing the skills we learned for at least 10 minutes a day. My husband arrived home after being out of town for the week and was immediately taken back by the positive change in our dog. It is refreshing to see him responding so well! We will continue to practice what Patrick taught us and hope that the positive changes we have seen will develop even more. I would recommend Patrick and Bark Busters 100%. Thank you Patrick for all your help and for a job well done!
I am so happy I called Patrick. It was amazing to me to see our 5 month Labrador mix puppy listen and follow directions in less than hour. He gives the owner the tools necessary to love and discipline (in a loving way) simultaneously. The other key to success he reiterated was practice practice practice and praise praise praise. I feel confident now and much more peaceful. He is very professional and patience. I would recommend to anyone!!
Patrick is a life saver.... literally !!!!! I adopted a small dog who was previously abused and attacks anyone other than myself. This is no way to live for him or me. I tried several things on my own but the situation was not getting any better. Within the 2 hour session, my little guy went from being a maniac to being calm and relaxed. The advice and techniques that Patrick provided are priceless. I have no doubt that following his instructions will lead to much happier life for all !!
Patrick came to our home yesterday and experienced first hand our standard poodle who barked at the doorbell, jumped all over him upon entry, jumped up on his lap when he sat down, slobbered drinking water on his clothes, and continuously jabbed him with toys to get his attention. During this time, Patrick was making every effort to educate my husband and myself about his program and teaching methods. When human class ended and dog class began, it became immediately apparent that our TOP dog was being demoted to the bottom of our family pack. Patrick was precise in his instruction and thorough with regards to reasoning. He patiently helped us practice until it became evident that our dog was well on her way to becoming a calm and respectful pet. We spent time today practicing from the sheets that were left with us and had no difficulty at all. I was even able to stop my unleashed dog outside from eating mulch and chasing the neighbors cat. I accomplished this with a well timed "dog-speak" word that Patrick taught us. Never had I ever imagined that such a transformation in behavior could be made in such a short amount of time. BARK BUSTERS PATRICK LOGUE IS AWESOME!!
What an amazing learning experience! Through a simple presentation/videos Patrick showed me "how to speak dog" rather the harder prospect of teaching my dog "to speak human". His demonstrations and practical exercises taught me how to work with my 8 year old German Shepherd to be calmer and more attentive in stressful situations. Frankly, this intensive first session was nothing short of instantly and completely helpful.
If you don’t think this will work on your dog, you’re wrong. I was worried if this would work for an older dog, but the results speak for themselves right away. I’ve now got an attentive and cooperative canine companion. The great part is that Bark Busters is there for texts and phone call questions whenever needed (which I've already utilized). This also includes homework and follow-on sessions. Patrick is truly a lifetime training partner for you and your canine companion.
Thank you Patrick and Bark Busters of Fort Myers for the life altering help! I can't wait for follow-on sessions.
Thank you Pat and Bark Busters! We were really having some problems with our new puppy. Establishing boundaries and getting him house trained was pushing us to our limits. Our sweet puppy Winston would go to the bathroom everywhere and .... often. We have 4 boys and live a very active lifestyle. It was critical to get him house trained. Our puppy was sweet and loving, however, we were getting to a point when we thought we had made a wrong decision in getting him. We tried crate training and various methods on our own with no luck. Pat came out and spent time with our family to understand the problems and educate us on how to speak to our puppy and offered a few simple solutions (where and when to feed, type of food, basic commands...). We are happy to report that we have had no accidents in the house for almost 2 weeks!!!! Bark Busters saved us!
I have worked with Patrick with my own personal dogs who have sibling rivalry and some of our fosters with a local rescue. He comes in to your home where the issues are and trains you how to communicate with your dog in a level they will understand. For the first time in a year my personal dog where able to see each mother through a gate and remain calm. I can not thank him enough!!!
Bark Busters is the best. I adopted a new shelter dog who had been returned for anxiety issues with lightning. After 1st visit a Huge improvement! We had lightning he had anxiety I used the tools I was taught and it was amazing
Yesterday was a game changer in our household! We have a German Shepherd rescue with a sad beginning to her life. The police found her wandering the streets of Miami so we can only imagine what 24 hours in her young life would bring. She is a wonderful dog with some not so wonderful issues. We have had her for 4 weeks and spent time getting her to trust us and know she had a safe forever home but we were unable to help her overcome her problems. Then in came Patrick. In 2 hours, we learned to correct the things we were doing wrong and our girl started to learn what was expected of her to be a member of our pack. We had no idea things could change so rapidly! Patrick worked wonders with her and we all agree that it is going to take some time to overcome all the issues but the improvement in her (and us) has been amazing in 24 hours. We would highly recommend Patrick. It's good to know we can call him at any time for help, but right now, everything Patrick taught us is working. Thank you Bark Busters and Patrick!
Thank you Patrick. Thank you for helping me understand my dogs body language, how to properly communicate with him so he will understand me and I will understand him. In only 2 hours you were able to show me the calm and relaxed side to my fur baby! I look forward to continuing his training and appreciate you helping me and my pup get on the right track to a respectful and trusting relationship with Atticus!
An amazing experience for all of us and instantly and completely helpful. In a simple to understand presentation, demonstration and practice, Patrick taught the whole family how to work with our dog to be calmer or exhibit the behaviors that, frankly, we were remiss in not addressing sooner.
If you don’t think this will work on your dog, you’re wrong. I thought ours was hopeless and I’ve got an even better and cooperative canine companion now.
Thank you Bark Busters of Fort Myers for the life saving help!!!
Trainer Patrick Logue came to work with my 4-month-old puppy this week, and I can't describe how astounding the difference is. It's like she is a different dog. The steps he gives you are based on legitimate behavioral psychology, yet still simple enough to follow where training her won't be as complex as originally thought. Highly recommended.
I was blown away! I loved that Patrick not only instructed me, but he gave me the rationale behind the instructions. He accomplished exactly what I needed him to this morning. Stella and I have been practicing with the door since he left. She totally gets it, what a great dog, and a great day! Thanks again Patrick.
Bark Busters is making a world of difference with our Shepherds. Patrick is amazing! Our 1 1/2 yr old is the challenge and Patrick has given us great tools to use so I don't get pulled down the road. Thank you Bark Busters and Patrick.
Patrick was Awesome! My family rescued a Lab/Shepard mix in May and we were having issues with walking him on a leash, swimming in our pool was not enjoyable, separation anxiety, jumping on us when we returned home and just not understanding who was in charge. After our first visit we have seen a big improvement in our dog. Using the tools and learning how to communicate with our dog has been a life saver for our home! Thanks for all your help and for educating us on how to communicate with Gino! We look forward to making more progress with him everyday!
Patrick has helped us with our two rescue dogs. They each had their own unique, behavioral problems which were causing us issues on multiple fronts. Patrick was able to identify the unwanted behaviors and help us understand why each of our dogs was acting as they did. Our six-year old lab/border collie/pit bull wasn't sure who was in charge and was therefore confused as to his role in the family. Our two year old lab/greyhound mix used her cuteness to get away with over energetic behaviors that bordered on insane. By implementing Patrick's tools over the last six months, we now have two very well-behaved dogs. I even had a small gathering at my house and all the guests were surprised to learn that our dogs were crated in the same room because the dogs never made a sound. This would not have been the story prior to having Patrick help us. All the noise and excitement of twelve new people in the house would have had them barking no stop. This past 4th of July we braced ourselves for the usual crazy barking that comes with the loud bangs of fireworks. For the past four years we have endured a sleepless night as each new round of bangs and whistles would bring about another round of panicked barking. Remarkably, we were able to have a bark free night thanks to Patrick's training tools. I never would have thought such a drastic change was possible but we are living proof that Patrick is a doggie miracle worker!
