-- Jay & Karen Robinson, Roselle, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Our trainer did an excellent job of explaining all of the techniques. Our dog has made huge improvements. I used to worry that she would spend all her time in her crate. Now I am comfortable with her being around kids & other dogs. We loved our training sessions and looked forward to each one. Bark Busters helped us control our dog's behavior but - more importantly - let us have the best relationship we could have with her. Thank you!

--The step-by-step explanation was thorough. Christine took time & patience to answer our many questions. The results were immediate. Pocahontes realized there was a new sheriff in town & responded. We tested the Bark Buster plan at the front door and saw immediate change. The techniques were easy to follow and they work! The leave behind information is helpful for a quick refresher. With Bark Busters and Christine Guth's help we are a happy dog family. Prior to her first visit and due to our dog's increasingly aggressive and dangerous behavior I had thoughts that we would have to look at the option of returning Pocahontes back to the shelter we adopted her from. Four visits later and I wouldn't think of it. I want Bark Busters to know how happy we are with the training & support that Chris provided our family. Thank you Chris!


-- Ashley Schwarz, Bloomingdale, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I have a rescue dog that other trainers and my veterinarian have considered hopeless and even recommended euthanasia. Chris Guth from Bark Busters has worked miracles with Buddy and in fact saved his life. I am eternally grateful to her. I love her positive reinforcement and gentle training methods. She truly cares for the dogs that she works with. I can not speak for all Bark Buster trainers but I can absolutely say that Chris Guth is the best and gives Bark Busters a great name.

-- Kathy, Itasca, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I just wanted to say thank you for those training sessions and the book you gave me. Kipp is a great dog. We constantly get great comments on her following commands and being a lady with company. At times she is more testing with just us, but a low G-r-r-r and she immediately sits. So many people will comment, "oh a border collie, I bet she never listens." Then they see she does. Thanks Bark Busters.

-- Christine Swanson, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was very clear and thorough with us and extremely patient too! We were totally amazed. We couldn't believe how fast he responded and we continue to be amazed. I love that only praise is used—no physical hitting. Chris made it fun and very understandable. She is great. I love our trainer, Chris Guth, and have and continue to recommend Bark Busters. Our trainer is fantastic and so helpful. I now feel confident we are giving our fur baby the best life possible.

-- Jan Walch, Berwyn, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The training was a good fit for our family and pet. The trainer was very thorough, patient and a great listener. The training works. We were very pleased that there was no hitting or slapping—only verbal commands. We learned a great deal of clear information that we can use. All our questions were addressed. Bark Busters is the best!

-- Sheila Scott, Forest Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Christine was very patient with us and our dogs. We had three Chihuahuas that were completely running our house. If anyone came to the door, they were barked at and attacked (jumped on). This is no longer the case, and it only took 2 hours! The technique was very simple and easy for both us and our dogs to follow. The training was very interesting and informative. Our neighbors saw the Bark Busters car in our driveway and had questions. We have raved about the results to everyone and requested fliers. We had a friend come over the day after our initial visit, and he wanted to know what we had done to our dogs. We told him these were the results after one visit!

-- Cecilia Tancun Zaucha, Schaumburg, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Thank you for sending Bark Buster News. I get a lot of information from it, and it helps with some of my questions that I want answered. I want to thank Christine, who helped me a lot in handling my little bad boy. He was so difficult to handle when I adopted him from a dog shelter because he is a dominating dog and wants his own way. I was at the end of my rope with him already. Even the groomer couldn't handle him. Christine said, "He will be alright when he knows someone loves him and he can trust you." Well, it worked. He is a little dominant at times, but not at all like he was. He is my forever pal, and we're always together. I am handicapped and stay home a lot, so you see I need him as much as he needs me. He gives kisses, paw, sits, stays and looks at you like he loves you so much.

-- Anna Gulbin, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Easy-to-follow instructions that really were effective with the dogs. It was amazing how "our problem child" immediately started listening and obeying commands. I especially liked not having to use food as a reward and just using emotional cues to convey praise or displeasure. The training experience was interesting and enjoyable. We have fun with the dogs. We would absolutely recommend Bark Busters to friends and neighbors. Christine definitely knows her stuff and readily assessed the personalities of the dogs and was able to "tailor" the training to their personality.

-- Karen Santelli, Schaumburg, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I would highly recommend Bark Busters. We have a puppy mill dog who is about 2 years old. She is making remarkable improvement with time, thanks to Chris Guth and Bark Busters training.

-- Ruth Rickerson, Bloomingdale, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Bella greets me without jumping up now. She didn't even need the training aid. She just needed my command. I still continue to use the training—especially on walks. I work at Addison Animal Hospital, and I have recommended it to many clients and include the information in our puppy kits.

-- Graziella Cefalu, Elmwood Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
We are so glad we started the Bark Busters training program when Sammy was a young puppy, instead of waiting until problems occurred. With Chris's help we are molding Sammy into a well-behaved puppy who treats us and our children with respect. We achieve this without being physical or aggressive. How fabulous! Learning about dog psychology has also been enlightening.

-- Amber Grau, Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris Guth is a fantastic teacher. She is great with dogs and humans! The "bah" technique works wonders. Chris was very responsive to our needs. I felt comfortable calling or e-mailing questions. Her response was always prompt. I have moved to Washington state and am teaching the "bah" technique to my current dog walker/sitter. Initially, I was struck by the cost, but it is worth the price. All my dogs (three) have changed for the better. I will enthusiastically recommend Bark Busters.

-- Catherine Monti, Oak Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris is very good, and her technique—excellent!!! We saw results in just a couple of days. Even our guests are very impressed with the dogs' behavior changes. We were absolutely pleased with the natural training techniques. It has made a great difference in our boys' behaviors. It is great to train the dogs using positive reinforcement versus treats! We would recommend it to everyone we know. We are extremely pleased with Bark Busters and very fortunate that Chris is our trainer.

-- Mike & Sandy Super, Addison, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I love the fact that Chris is helping me to better understand what my dog needs; because he is so shy, going slow is what is best for him. Thank you so much.

-- Shirley Sanchez, Itasca, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I have a little, 3-pound Yorkie. I was having a problem with her going outside to go to the bathroom when it was raining. I was referred to Chris—she was wonderful, dogs truly are her passion. I started to do all the things she told me to do, and it works so well. And also the Buster's Secret urine stain and odor spray works so, so well; I would highly recommend it. Thank you for all your help and the passion you had with my little girl.

-- Desiree Ludwig, Itasca, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Everything Chris said made sense, and it made the training a lot easier. Jack was so attentive; by the end of the session, he was like a different dog. It is so much easier to use my "Bah" or training aid than chasing Jack around the yard or the house. I found the training experience to be interesting and enjoyable and the time flew by. The whole family enjoyed it. We have already given the brochure to friends. Our friends have noticed the change in Jack already. The Bark Busters training techniques have helped Jack become a happier puppy, and the house is a lot calmer. We are enjoying Jack—not constantly correcting or worrying about him.

-- Kristin Long, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The techniques explained and demonstrated by Chris were not only easy to follow and understand, but they were also extremely effective. We observed noticeable results by the end of the training, and we continued to reinforce, correct and reward positively. Today, barking is under control and door manners have been learned. All techniques that were explained and demonstrated gave us an excellent glimpse into the dog world. Bark Busters techniques are easy to understand, and they work! Chris taught us how/what dogs interpret, understand, and react/respond to and what we needed to do to make lasting positive changes. Extremely interesting and enjoyable. We have recommended Bark Busters twice: 1 - To the lady who cuts our hair. She has an aggressive dog, and we recommended Bark Busters to help her out; 2 - To my brother and his wife, Erin. They have a golden retriever who pulls on the leash and snaps at Erin.

-- Carol Coggins, Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Our dog has benefited greatly from the training and has improved a lot. I was pleased with the training from day one because our experience has been so wonderful. Duffy has enjoyed his lessons with Chris as much as we have. What I loved about this training was how well we owners learned to work with our dog and how he trusts us.

-- J. Trapani, Elmwood Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Christine is great. We really appreciate all her help and guidance. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer.

-- Kathy & Tom Elder, Schaumburg, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris took the appropriate time to go through everything. If we had any questions, she would stop and answer them. We have noticed a gradual change for the better in my dog's behaviors. Chris continues to mention that our confidence and time spent with them will only improve things. The natural training is one of the reasons we started with Bark Busters. It is interesting to see how our dogs respond to each of the techniques. If we know of others that are in need of outside help, we would recommend Bark Busters. Chris has excellent confidence in her knowledge of working with pets. She also has expressed how confident she is in us and our dogs. She is willing to try many different things with us to help better our relationship with our dogs.

-- Cathleen & Peggy Tomaino, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was very patient with us, and I was encouraged by the gentle but firm manner of training. The experience was interesting and enjoyable, not only because of Christine's manner, but watching the results and the change in yourself is rewarding. I'm glad we found each other! While always adorable, my dogs are loved even more now.

-- Sandra Hensley, Itasca, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Hilda had barking issues that were out of control. With Chris' help, we were able to get Hilda on the right track. As a rookie dog owner, all the behavioral techniques and insights into dog behavior in general were great information to have.

-- Susan Froelich, Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I was pleased with the natural training techniques used by Bark Busters—especially how the training is tailor-made to your dog. Christine constantly adapts to the individual personality/needs of the dog. I really like the fact that the training is not revolved around treats. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters. Christine is incredibly responsive and spent a lot of time working with Maeve. It is obvious that she is very interested/knowledgeable and displays a lot of compassion for Maeve and animals in general.

-- Jackie Zubak, Oak Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
There were obvious results in walking, obedience and not begging for food in the kitchen. Christine did an excellent job in explaining training techniques and answering all questions. I have had plenty of opportunities to practice the various techniques. It is very apparent that the training will work with consistent practice.

-- Gary K, Oak Park, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
It was miraculous. I was about to get rid of the dog but now he listens and has great manners. The techniques are amazing and best of all they work instantaneously. Our dog will be a joy to have in our family now, instead of a nightmare. I already have recommended Bark Busters to several friends. What an awesome program! I was totally dumbfounded by the instant response, instant success.

-- Lisa Z, Bloomingdale, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
It is absolutely amazing how far all 3 dogs have come. Even our neighbor who was our test door ringer was shocked at how good they are now - especially in the yard.

-- Mary Parks, Wood Dale, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
All of the training steps were very easy. We saw noticeable results that very evening. We were definitely pleased with the natural training techniques used and our dog has definitely benefited from it. I have recommended Bark Busters to one of our neighbors whose daughter was having problems with her dog. She heard how great our dog had done with Bark Busters.

-- Sue Andre, Roselle, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was great! She helped me see what I was lacking in leadership and showed me numerous ways to handle Minnie's urges to be in control. Minnie listens better, walks on the leash without pulling and over time has begun to respect me as the "pack leader." Thanks!

-- J Hallford, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
We made great progress with one lesson and have recommended the program to others. We have taken many dog lessons and found this system by far the best. Wished we had known about this program sooner.

-- Charlie Baxa, Addison, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)

Clear, specific behavioral techniques were explained and practiced. The behavior changes were dramatic after our two sessions. Family and friends noticed changes immediately. Chris Guth is extremely clear with instructions and descriptions on how to handle various situations. The training experience was fun and very enjoyable. Already my neighbor who plans to adopt a puppy mentioned that she plans to contact Chris. I only wish that I had contacted Bark Busters sooner when I first adopted the puppy. Nonetheless, we're now on the right track!

-- Maureen Culleeney, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I was so amazed at the results. Now I not only love my dog, I can enjoy him as well. Chris was extremely patient with me as well as Cooper. She is a great spokesperson for Bark Busters.

-- Linda Ryback, Addison, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I was at my wit's end with Hattie's aggression, but with Chris's help and instruction, she has come a long way.

-- Susan Porten, Bensenville, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris is very patient and easy to work with. We noticed results after our first visit. I was very pleased with the training aids which do no harm to the dog. We loved having the trainer come to the house to train us. I have already referred a friend of mine. This is the best investment we have made with the dog. We tried PetSmart but we didn't have any success.

-- Tami D'Orazio, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The training teaches us to be good leaders for our dogs. They are quiet, calm and well behaved! Our neighbors have no more complaints. We saw the dog's behaviors improve from week to week. Chris is quite friendly and knows us and the dogs well. She has so many ideas for different situations. We were on the verge of getting rid of Eli but he stepped up with the training and has become a good dog! Hats off to Chris! A great role model for Jaimus and I. She encourages us and does a great service for dogs and people.

-- Callie S & Jaimus V., Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The training experience was enjoyable because it took place in my own home and my dog was the main focus -- not a group of dogs. I observed noticeable results immediately! I'm so thrilled!

-- Barb B, Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
We saw noticeable results at the end of the 1st lesson. After a week we needed the trainer to return for a problem we were having. I called at 1:30pm and by 4:00pm she was at our house helping us. ~ At first I was skeptical but I've seen so many positive changes with my dog and we've only had 3 training sessions!

-- Amy Taucher, Roselle, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Great results!! We have had many behavior specialists in our 64 years of marriage. In that period we have had 16 dogs - all breeds - all shelters. Christine is by far the best.

-- Lou Tanner, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Jayda showed results after the first session, and she had had 3 previous trainings that never worked with other companies.

-- Carrie Oliver, Bloomingdale, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The trainer was very patient. She even went to the groomer with me to watch dog's behavior. Gave me many pointers to follow. I don't believe in hitting a dog in any way so voice training is excellent. The dog and I are much happier - almost had to give him up before training. I can control him now where he was aggressive before. His behavior is much better. Able to enjoy him more.

-- Anna Gulbin, Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was always patient, cheerful, imaginative and creative with both Shanti & myself. She stuck with my dog & me through much difficulty. She even helped my pet sitter. I really needed the follow-through Chris provided. She not only lived up to the Bark Buster Credo, which I expected, but she was imaginative and persistent in her various approaches with my dog, Shanti. Shanti is very stubborn & challenging. She met her match with Chris! Hip, hip hurray for Chris!!

-- Jeannie M., Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was outstanding! She is caring & concerned for our dog & us. She is a great instructor. Extremely knowledgeable! In 2 days, our dog had drastic improvement in her behavior. We are realistic about progress & in time expect even greater results. Very impressive. I've had 3 trainers in the past for other dogs & none were as professional & successful. I learned a lot and have already talked with people about this program & how awesome Chris was. Excellent follow up!

-- Susan M., Elmhurst, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I would recommend Bark Busters to friends and neighbors because of the quality of training and the time the therapist takes with you and your dog. Also, the lifetime guarantee is all worth it.

-- Anna Marie A., Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris is an excellent trainer. She is knowledgeable about all of our dog's specific behaviors. We made tremendous progress in just 2 sessions! This is an excellent program to regain the control and respect of our pets so we can live harmoniously together! Thanks for providing such a comprehensive yet reasonably priced service!

-- Farrah F., Addison, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Chris was awesome! She made everything so easy! It was amazing how quickly they learned not to rush the door when the bell rang. Every dog owner should learn this technique! I wish I learned it years ago. Thank you for helping our relationship with our dogs!

-- Kara B., Elk Grove Village, IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
We had tried other remediations and were feeling discouraged. We now have hope that the dogs can live safely and happily.

-- Sharon K., , IL (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I'll admit I was skeptical. I wasn't sure how you could train a deaf dog, but Chris proved you can. Your techniques work. Durango is proof.

-- Alice E. - Elk Grove Village, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
We had done puppy & basic training, but we saw better results in the 1st session with Chris than months of training before. He is happier, less stressed; the barking & aggressiveness has stopped completely. I thought we could never take him to the park again, but he is a changed dog! He walks nicely on the leash & isn't aggressive anymore to other dogs. Chris was so professional & diagnosed his problems quickly & gave us concrete strategies to correct his behavior. I was amazed at how quickly he has responded & how long his good behavior has persisted. I was concerned that because of his age (7), it might be difficult for Henry to respond, but he caught on so quickly. I am telling all my friends & family how amazing Bark Busters is and what a great difference it has made in our quality of life! Thank you!

-- Tricia E. - Roselle, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I was so shocked by the positive results I had with just one visit. The recall problems I was having changed drastically. Now - when I call him - he comes.

-- Dawn L. - Winfield, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
Jack has improved quite a bit since beginning the program. We are very happy with the results.

-- Blake M. - Elmhurst, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
I thought my dog was hopeless, but the techniques used proved me wrong.

-- Christopher B. - Roselle, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
It was amazing. Lady seemed to be a different dog after the first lesson.

-- Charles M. - Schaumburg, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
The natural training techniques were perfect. I had a hard time being “tough” with my dogs and I don’t feel that way with this technique. The personalized, one-on-one training was perfect for my “special needs” dog!

-- Karen L. - Bloomingdale, IL, (Trainer: Christine Guth - Northern DuPage County Dog Trainers)
