Is your dog showing some dog behavioral problems?
Or do you need puppy training to get your puppy started on the right paw?
Don't give up! Bark Busters Home Dog Training can help. No more embarrassing moments with your four-legged friend.
From dog aggression, to dog jumping up, to barking, separation anxiety, potty training, as a professional dog trainer with 10+ years of experience, I work with all dog behaviors.
I am excited to bring Bark Busters to Knoxville, TN after spending many years helping hundreds of dogs and their owners live happier lives together while working and living in Illinois.
Bark Busters, the world's largest home dog training company, uses pet friendly dog behavior training. We don't resort to coercive shock collars; instead we focus on voice commands, body language and establishing you as the leader of the pack through effective dog communication.
We come to your home where you and your dog are most comfortable and where the dog behavioral problems tend to occur. Dogs learn best in their own environment.
When you choose our life of dog support package, unique to our industry, your dog has a partner for life. We can change a difficult dog into a happy dog in just a few hours.
As for me . . . Connie Pinkerton with Bark Busters in Knoxville
I am a certified Master Dog Behavioral Therapist and Dog Trainer with Bark Busters. I grew up with dogs, and I have always enjoyed animals. I was the child in the family who retrieved the dogs when they got out, clipped the nails, cut, combed, shampooed, walked and trained the dogs. I have volunteered at animal shelters for over 13 years. After working in Corporate America for 22 years, it didn't take me long to realize that doing what I have a passion for is much more rewarding. My 4 current dogs are all from shelters. The last one acquired, I call 'Pound Puppy Pepper', was confiscated in a drug raid and never claimed at 3 months old. Pepper is now the 4th permanent member in our dog pack. We also have cats that coexist peacefully with the dogs.
In an effort to make our pets a part of the family, the "loving gestures" that we extend toward our dogs are interpreted in a canine way and much differently than we intended. Therein lies the problem. Bark Busters' dog training methods are very simple, easy to follow and humane. The dog obedience training sessions are essentially about establishing leadership and developing a good relationship with your dog because your dog understands Speaking Dog.
If you need help in training your dog, call Bark Busters Knoxville servicing Knoxville and the surrounding areas. Whether you need mature dog training or puppy training, Rottweiler training or small dog training ! dog obedience with us will be a snap!
My goal is to make Happy Dogs = Happy Families one pack at a time.

Connie was absolutely wonderful. We were blown away at how well the techniques worked, and were amazed to see how simple dominance training (FOR US, not so much our dog) can make such a huge difference in our relationship with Duncan. Duncan is a very large now 10-month old Lab/Rott/Shepherd mix (just over 7 months when we began training with Co...
Connie and Bark Busters is the absolute BEST! We have 2 brand new dogs after Connie's visit teaching us & our dogs. She worked magic with our 9 month old puppy & our 9 year old dog. Connie was an absolute joy to work with & her extensive wealth of knowledge of everything dog:)
The dog trainer, Connie, was nice and addressed all issues with our dog. It was amazing how well our dog responded to the training with a few simple techniques. I'm much more confident and get good results in correcting any behavior issues of our dog. Hey, I've learned how to talk to our dog! She has almost totally stopped jumping up and nipping. I...
Connie is amazing. She taught us how to look for signals from our beautiful 1 yr old German shepherd mix. Prior to working with Connie, I couldn't take Basia for a walk, now walking has become so pleasant for both myself and her. Connie is always willing to answer questions, she is patient and speaks "dog" and has taught us to do the same. Thank yo...
I wanted to wait a couple of days to see how our family did with the training from Connie. My dad is very logical, and with Connie's explanation of why we need to train a certain way, helped get him onboard. My mom is a sweetheart and just wants to love their new puppy, so Connie showed her how the puppy would love and respect her more with the tr...
Lori Crimaldi in the last week Connie is amazing! We were skeptical at first when reading the reviews but it's true- within a few minutes our usually aggressive pup was being respectful and listening to commands. Our dog has a history of being abused and was extremely aggressive to my fiancÃ© and strangers. We were about 2 days away from being fo...
Connie is great! I have 3 pit bulls that have different personalities and Connie gave me a lesson on each of their personalities. It has only been one week and I have already seen massive improvement from all of them. I cannot wait to see what a difference five weeks make!
Connie is amazing! Before the end of the first lesson I had a new dog. Before i would get attacked just for standing up or walking into a room but this has not happened since our first lesson. It was well worth the money and Connie was so nice and helpful. She teaches you what to do to correct the issue.
It's only been a couple days and our Sadie is doing great! She has responded to all the training she and we received. Yesterday we had her favorite guest to jump on come visit us, and she barely lifted one paw off the ground! She's like a new dog. We are so excited to keep working with her for the long-term changes. Thank you, Connie and Bark Buste...
Connie was amazing! Dusty is a rescue dog. He barked, growled and lunged toward every car, person and dog who came within 50 feet of us. Having anyone come into my apartment was completely out of the question. I was at my wits end when I called Bark Busters. On her first visit, Connie was able to come into the apartment, sit down and even walk arou...Mary C | Knoxville, Knox, Tennessee
