Dog Owners Reviews

Reggie is very large and although sweet, people were frightened when he would jump out at them. Now, people passing by comment on how cute he is rather than trying to avoid him. He is happier and we are able to take him more places to do fun things. The techniques and tools are simple and very effective, and have had a positive effect on Reggie. After just one visit, he did NO jumping, started to sit and stay on command, as well as less pulling on leash. The experience was fun as we could see his behavior improving!

David explained things in a way that was easy to follow and understand and left us excellent notes from the session. We appreciated the coaching and practice. He was particularly adept in working with a senior pet owner. We hope more dogs and neighbors will call David!

I was so completely engaged and enjoyed every moment that David was here to teach us the techniques! He explained how to do things, then showed us. He was very positive throughout and encouraged us. Bandit responded immediately and he has continued to progress in many of the new things we learned. I really appreciate and prefer the natural approach. I don't want to have to carry a clicker or treats with me, but to have Bandit behave because he respects me as his leader. I've already told several friends about how I enjoyed the experience and recommend David if they want help with their dogs.

David did a great job of explaining everything clearly, and our training session was excellent. On day later and we're already seeing improvement!

Huge shout out to David Wiley of Bark Busters Seattle. If you are looking for one-on-one consultation/dog training, he's your man. He came over yesterday to help me with my puppy Izzy, helped me set realistic expectations for her behavior on a walk, coached me on corrections and gave me tips to better get her attention. I was only disappointed when he said she was too young to make me a Manhattan. But I suppose I needed to hear the hard truth.

David Wiley is absolutely wonderful. Sure is evident that he is doing the work he loves. And that he loves the critters he helps so much.

David Wiley is a very good listener. He showed me examples of the training process and gave me the confidence I needed to be in charge. I look forward to continuing to learn and enjoying the company of my well-behaved dogs!

I never thought using voice alone would get Grizzly to listen to me, but he responded immediately. David praised me for all the work I have done with him previously, and I saw how the new techniques were easily implemented becasue of that work. After seeing such a change in his behavior, I would definitely recommend David and Bark Busters

David Wiley was recommended by two familes on our street and I will gladly pass that on too. He fully listened to me when I told him I wanted training to overcome MY anxiety about our puppy's aggression. He immediately reinforced all I did that was working and gave hints and lessons along the way. What a GREAT role model! My headstrong puppy needs more than positive, treat-feeding reinforcement. Now he's starting to listen to me!

David's insight into why dogs do what they do is very interesting. We saw results during his first visit, particiularly with excessive barking, which stopped almost immediately. David was also good at correcting me tactfully. We like this much better than doing everything for treats.

My out-of-control Yorkies responded remarkably to the training. I would highly recommend David Wiley. He was very thorough, easy to understand and patient with me; excellent in all respects. I am one very happy client. There is still work to be done, but it's amazing. Although the up front cost wasn't cheap, it was well worth every penny just in the first lesson. That doesn't even compare to the Lifetime package and what it covers.

The training is user friendly! David Wiley is awesome!

Totally new dog.

There was immediate impact with Maggie, and my annoyance with her has been reduced significantly. The techniques are simple to follow and we saw results in the first session. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters. The training program is more expensive than most, but it is simple to follow and had an immediate impact.

David has a calm, patient style that put us at ease and made us feel 100% comfortable asking lots of questions to ensure we met our goals. We like that we are really able to focus on our very specific challenges.
Josh & Lisa C., Seattle 14th August 2012

David Wiley was so friendly, helpful and caring. I found that I didn't have to carve out a lot of time dedicated to praticing - more just using the techniques naturally in everyday settings. Jinger has relaxed and is such a wonderful pet. I enjoyed working with David and couldn't be happer!

David met and surpassed our expectations of a dog trainer. He is very knowledgeable and focused. He tailored the training to our specific home needs and made it fun for our entire family!
Kelly K., Seattle 26th February 2012

We were convinced that our dog was untrainable. But the last few weeks have proven we were wrong - WOW!
David & Therese C., Renton 26th February 2012

David was VERY interactive with us and asked lots of questions. My dog, Gabe responded to me right away and has continued to improve. I loved the training experience and felt much better. It was a great session and I would do it again!
