meet your specialist trainer Frank Raimondi
Dog Training & Behavioral Therapist for East OC, California
I have worked with several trainers to address a fearful young Jack Russel with major aggression issues towards dogs of any size. I had doubts as to expectations with and $ involved with another trainer, but my dog's problems only became more difficult to deal with for both of us. Walks were dreaded as major avoidance maneuvers were required to avoid coming near other dogs when out along with the fact that I was being pulled by a very strong, small animal to go where she wanted. The two of us did not have a favorable reputation among dog owners in the apartment community. Clearly I had to try again to get some relief for both of us. Two days following our initial 2 hour session with Frank from Bark Busters, Maggie and I had a walk with NO pulling--what a difference! Even more amazing was one of the most formerly intimidating dogs in our community walked by with absolutely no aggressive response from Maggie. Another unexpected surprise a neighbor calling to me from across the street to say what a good job my dog was doing! The cues and collar provided made a difference to say the least! The initial meeting gave us much to work on. However, my early favorable results has left me strongly motivated to work on our daily training with the direction provided. Additional questions were answered in the follow-up call three days after our first session. I not only appreciate that no harsh, loud verbal communications were involved, but that so many issues were addressed, modeled and practiced during the initial session. Having the training in our own environment made the suggestions and practice all the more relevant. I could not be happier with my experience to date. A big THANK YOU to Frank for a great beginning with Maggie!Sandi W.August 30 2016

The Bark Buster Mission Statement
Bark Busters mission is to establish a global network of licensed dog behavioral therapists and trainers to enhance responsible companion dog ownership with education in pack law and canine communication, to reduce the possibility of maltreatment, abandonment or euthanasia of companion dogs.
As a Bark Busters Dog Behavioral Therapist, I am committed to our mission statement. After meeting Sylvia and Danny Wilson, the founders of Bark Busters, I knew they shared my love of dogs. They have established a company that has saved thousands of dogs lives by teaching canine communication and natural training methods that dog owners can use to have a more enjoyable relationship with their dogs based on love, trust and respect.
The Bark Busters guarantee simply states that if the client carries out the training instructions provided at the training lesson, the Bark Busters therapist will work with the client for the life of the dog at no additional charge.
I started training dogs in 1969. I have shown dogs in AKC obedience competition and obtained numerous obedience degrees with my dogs. I have bred and shown German shepherds for many years. I have also shown Dalmatians in breed competition finishing my dog, Ch. Happy-Dal Waldo Pepper's AKC Championship. I am no longer involved in the competitive side of showing dogs. I am a companion dog owner just like most of my clients. My enjoyment comes from having three well-behaved rescue dogs. Every day is a new, fun experience helping people enjoy their dogs and relieving stressful situations in their homes.
What We Do
I teach my clients how to communicate with their dogs in a language the dog understands to eliminate unwanted behaviors. If nuisance barking, aggressive behavior towards people or other dogs, jumping up, pulling on the leash, nipping/chewing/mouthing, digging in the yard, toileting in the house, separation anxiety or over-excitement sounds like your dog, then Bark Busters can help. I also teach basic obedience (sit, stay, down, come), puppy training and MORE!
How We Do It
Bark Busters training is all natural; I will show you how to establish the leadership role in your household. Dogs are willing to surrender that role if they feel safe with their humans as the "pack leaders." By using our simple and effective techniques, we turn problem dogs into happy, relaxed companion dogs.
Call me today. I serve North Orange County: Fullerton, Brea, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Placentia, Yorba Linda, Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, Orange, Tustin & Santa Ana.

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.
