meet your specialist trainer Karen Montalvo
Dog Training & Behavioral Therapist for Nashville, Tennessee
Best Dog Training in Nashville!
Killian tells the story of his mom being laid off after working in the health field for over 25 years: "She was pretty low and discouraged about being out of work. She traveled for a couple of years and I hated it! One day she came home and declared she was ready for a change! Well, next thing I know, she packed us up and headed for Denver where I had to learn things I'd never even thought about! I balked at having to lose my leadership position but I must admit, at this point, life is so much better. Bark Busters training showed me I didn't have to worry about anything because Karen took care of everything! I get to be a dog now, and she handles all the other stuff life throws at you!"
I have had pets all my life and believe strongly that they are good for your health. I trained a few of my own dogs when I was younger, but the Bark Busters method is so much better. It is simple yet very powerful. It is very gratifying to me when I help a family get their dog(s) well behaved. I realize how much a dog can disrupt family life.
If your dog is unruly and you are willing to commit the time to teach him, then I can help you.
I teach you to train your pet. Having a well-behaved dog is such a comfort.
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.
