As for me . . . Connie Pinkerton with Bark Busters 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.
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.
