meet your specialist trainer Susan McNichol
Home dog training Sarasota
Susan is a wonderful trainer. I contacted Susan when I was seriously considering giving my girl up. After the first lesson Susan had me convinced that Sheba is both a very happy and a smart dog. She learns quickly what is expected so I learned quickly that the biggest challenge is not Sheba, but for me to consistently apply what we learn. Susan listens to my concerns and when one method doesn't work she is right there with another. Sheba loves & respects her. My primary goal was to be able to enjoy a loose leash walk - and now we do! Sheba has dog aggression and we addressed it quite effectively by establishing & maintaining good walking habits - plus a couple of tricks out of Susan's deep bag! We're still working on it, but the change in Sheba is dramatic. I love the lack of words and use of sounds & tones to get Sheba to respond. Sheba is in her forever home and we'll continue to work & play together. We could have had a very different outcome if I hadn't called Susan. Thank you Susan!Renee H.December 15 2016
The Best Dog Training in Sarasota!
I have loved and enjoyed all types of dogs my entire life. There is nothing more precious to me than looking into the warm, loving eyes of my dog. I trained my first dog at 7 years of age attending dog shows with my grandfather. His life was dedicated to breeding, showing and hunting with his English Setters. He was also a well- renowned judge in the show ring and once let me show his champion, "Dixie." I found his world fascinating, and knew I would follow in his footsteps!
My life continued into the world of pets when I started a business with my husband (a racehorse driver) that we built over the next 15 years. I worked daily with the interactions of horses and realized how unique and special each animal is. When I left this industry, I went back to school to practice dental hygiene for 15 years. I loved working with people and making their lives better.
Then my daughter (thank you) found BARK BUSTERS for me. An ideal fit. Could it be true that I could work at my life's passion? Could I work with people and dogs and make both of their lives better? Absolutely! BARK BUSTERS Sarasota provides a whole new world of dog training that no one else offers!
How do I know this dog training method works? Because I was in your shoes when I rescued my dog, Desiree almost 9 years ago. She defied everything I had ever used to train my dogs and had multiple dog obedience issues. Desiree would be the best dog in any pet obedience class I enrolled her in, but our house and neighborhood were an entirely different story. I tried many dog training methods and dog personal trainers and experienced incredible frustration before we experienced Bark Busters. I now have a dog that knows I am the "pack leader" of our house. She listens through voice control and body language and no longer lunges at people and dogs in our neighborhood. Thanks to the Bark Busters humane dog training, methods I have the dog I always knew Desiree was. She listens, comes when she's called on the first command and walks in a well-behaved manner.

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.
