“I hired Bark Busters.

They really taught me about behavior.

There are no treats or punishment, it’s about speaking their language.

Establishing dominance through sounds really helped.

I would growl at her and she learned that I was alpha.

I also learned to crate train her with a calming sheet covering the crate and she is much less anxious now.”

“I broke up with the person I bought her with.

Rosie got anxious when we broke up and now she has separation anxiety.

She always had it, but it got worse after we moved.

She would bark the entire time I was out at work.

My neighbors were upset with the barking and I was afraid I was going to get kicked out of my new apartment.”

“We googled breeders and my girlfriend found a reputable breeder.

We waited two months for a litter and we’ve had him for three months.

It’s been tough when he’s pooped all over the apartment, and it’s ongoing.

We share the cleanup evenly.”
