What Differentiates Bark Busters Gainesville, Ocala?

We train dog owners and dogs. Most people think the main focus of our training is on the dog. Actually, it’s on the dog owner. Your dog doesn’t listen to you because he doesn’t understand what you are saying. Believe it or not, he wants to please you – he just doesn’t know how. When puppies are born, they communicate with their Moms through body language and verbal communications. The pup Moms don’t use treats, shock collars or any electrical devices and they don’t speak English. That’s why Bark Busters teaches you how to communicate with your dog through voice tones and body language – the way dogs naturally communicate.

Establish a positive relationship! By their nature, dogs will vie with you for control. Bark Busters teaches you how to lead your dog so your dog knows you are in control and will keep your family - human and canine - safe. You will establish a new relationship with your dog based on trust, love and respect. Additionally, your dog will be more relaxed having all need met.

You will see immediate results. Once we help you get to the root of your dog’s behavior, you will notice immediate changes in your dog. Continue practicing the exercises 10 – 15 minutes/day and you will have an well behaved dog in no time.

Our methods often succeed where other training methods fail. Our dog training services are often recommended by veterinarians and other trainers, because Bark Busters is able to tackle the tough issues – sibling rivalry, separation anxiety, biting and more.

Your Expert Dog Trainer & Dog Behavioral Therapist in Gainesville-Ocala, Kevin Bard:

Dogs have always been a part of my family. I grew up with several coonhounds as well as a Lab mix at home. Every day after school, they were always there to greet us and play for as long as we were able. Their constant enthusiastic companionship and the comfort they provided in low times was an anchor for me during my childhood.

As an adult, I understand and appreciate the impact that our furry friends have on their families and their homes. During high school, I adopted my first dog, Sadie, from a local shelter. Raising her not only deepened my love for dogs, it clarified how a loving owner can transform a dog’s life. During her time with us, Sadie’s behavior and personality changed significantly for the better. Through my relationship with Sadie and my time working in dog shelter helping rehabilitate aggressive dogs, I began to understand how proper handling and training can transform a traumatized dog. I also started to understand how environment, proper nutrition, and other factors contribute to a dog’s development.

When Sadie passed, it impacted me heavily. I felt empty without her, and it crystalized the importance of our relationships with our dogs. They are far more than pets, they are a special kind of family member offering a unique kind of unconditional love.

Shortly after Sadie passing, I met a Bark Buster who shared his experience in building a career around dogs. Seeing the joy it brought Marc and his wife, Karen, made me realize that I want to spend my days helping dogs and their owners.

My goal is to teach dog owners how to help their dogs become happy well-mannered family members.

The Bark Busters training system is second to none and can help you change your life and your dog’s life for the better.

I look forward to helping you learn a better way to a better dog!
