meet your specialist trainer Ryan Brown
Bark Busters Home Dog Training El Paso, Colorado Springs
The training was an excellent learning experience for both my wife and I as well as Sammie. Ryan did a great job of explaining how dogs communicate and what we needed to do to communicate properly with our dog. Before he left there was a very noticeable difference in Sammie's behavior and we were already working on the owner behaviors. Within 24 hours some of the major issues we were having were under control, i.e. nipping/biting, jumping on us, and over excitement with new people. Within 48 hours I had applied the training to our walks and was able to control Sammie with voice and leash most of the time, which was a great improvement. Since then it only gets better every day.Tony M.March 4 2016

Thanks for your interest in Bark Busters and thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me. My name is Ryan Brown and I am your local trainer here in the Pikes Peak Region. I am a fourth generation Colorado native and I love helping dog owners understand why dogs do what they do and how to fix the issues they need fixed. I have spent the last decade training over 3,000 dogs (and their owners).
I serve Palmer Lake all the way down to Fort Carson, and even Pueblo. I have traveled East to Limon, West to Florissant and everywhere in between to help those in need.
Ten years ago (before Bark Busters), my wife Erin and I had an Anatolian Shepherd mix named Jesse. She was a nuisance barker and a "D" dog on the behavioral rating quiz. We were frustrated and she was confused. Erin and I needed to be trained as much as if not more than Jesse! We loved Jesse like crazy despite her behaviors. When she became an "A" dog, everyone else got to see how awesome she was and the barking was no longer an issue.
My job is to teach you how to communicate with your dog in a way that he will understand. I also need to teach you how to be your dog's teacher. Dogs are amazing "people" trainers.Because of this, they very often think that they are in charge and see us as the students.
I often deliver presentations to veterinarians and their staff, as well as schools and rescue groups. I have even helped many of those same people with their dogs in their own homes. One of the best times I've had was training inmates at a medium security correctional facility with the dogs that they were supposed to train for their rehab program.
Most people overcomplicate training because we are much more complicated than our dogs. When you simplify the communication process, training can happen so much faster because the dogs just get it.
The vast majority of our clients see big improvements in their dog's behavior in the very first visit!
We start off with a 2-3 hour lesson where we sit down at a table and go through your wish list of everything that you wish your dog would either stop doing or just do better. Then we go through a fascinating presentation where I teach you more than you ever thought you could learn about canine communication. My job is to make you your own dog's "whisperer". We finish up with some hands on exercises where you will see your dog learn right before your eyes!
Not only is it fun, but empowering to understand why dogs do what they do and how to fix the problems yourself.
Any age and any issue, from potty training to serious aggression and separation anxiety, we are the best!
If you just read all of this, you are obviously in need of some help. Please don't procrastinate any longer.Help can be on the way soon!

how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
