About Your North Valley
Gary Viscum comes back to Bark Busters after a six-year hiatus. Gary was previously a trainer with Bark Busters from 2006-2011. I missed working with dogs and their owners so much, I had to return!
Gary joined the Marine Corps while in college and was on active duty for Desert Storm. Gary has had careers in the casino industry, in radio, and most recently, he spent the past 5 years as a bail bondsman in Phoenix, AZ. Gary loves animals and especially likes the idea of helping people train their dogs so they can keep them instead of giving them up to a shelter. Gary has two sons, ages 11 and 8, and a wonderful wife, Sara who he has been married to for over twenty years. The Viscum pack also includes the Beagle, Buster, the Cane Corso, Seamus, and the cat Tuck.

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.
