I speak dog! Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training. For the past 30 years, we have trained more than 1 million dogs and their pet parents using our natural communication techniques that dogs understand. We apply the same communication methods, using body language and voice controls, that dogs instinctively follow.
As a Bark Busters master trainer and behavioral therapist, I resolve your most challenging dog behavior issues, like aggression, destruction, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry.
I also deal with basic dog obedience and nuisance issues like barking, jumping and more. I teach and train puppies so that you and your dog grow together with the tools you need! The best is that I do all of this in the comfort of your own home where you and your dog are most comfortable and will learn quickly and effectively.
Any age, any issue, any breed, I will partner with you to help you live a happier life together with your dog!
For the past eighteen years, I have been telling people that being a Bark Busters Master Dog Trainer & Dog Behavioral Therapist is the best job I ever had. I get to meet many new people and dogs – and then educate them on how they can have a HAPPY RELATIONSHIP with each other. Once you understand how to Speak Dog - well, you will wish it was that easy to communicate with another person!
In 2003, I went to Colorado to become a Bark Busters Dog Trainer and took Sparky my nine-year-old Welsh Terrier to work on two major dog behavior issues – barking and fear aggression to other dogs. After five weeks of daily studies and training, learning how to understand the canine world, and learning new skills for communicating with and how to educate dogs, I was able to help him on the path to becoming a better canine citizen. Fast forward six months...
Sparky would stop barking with one correction and come running to me for praise, a huge accomplishment! As for the fear aggression, when we saw another dog walking, he no longer went ballistic, we still had some work to do; he reached the point where he would ignore other dogs – no playing - but was well behaved around them. I said goodbye to Sparky in 2009, he was my best buddy.
Dogs of Any Age – We Can Help!
I wanted to “rescue” my next dog. I met with a family and their six-month-old Cairn Terrier. I brought him home and renamed him Moxie. At this young age he already had a laundry list of problems. He had a multi-person bite record, felt the need to guard just about anything, and he was very protective of his body being touched. Oh – and he had the worst dreams with growling and snapping. I had a good friend tell me I had made a mistake thinking I could fix a dog with these issues. Zip forward a few months...
After using the Bark Busters methods Moxie did not feel the need to guard everything and no more biting! Knowing he was grumpy when he woke up, I always gave him time to fully wake up [we all know someone like that!] His bad dreams also seemed to occur less often. After seeing the changes, my friend said to me– “Amazing, I cannot believe the change in that dog, I thought he was a lost cause and now he is a great dog!” Moxie developed cancer and I said goodbye to him shortly after his 12th birthday, in the spring of 2021.
Any Dog Behavior Issue – We Can Help!
Meet my new rescue dog, Caper. A five-year-old terrier mix he is a happy little guy that loves to play with toys! (SO unlike my first two dogs!) It has been interesting to watch him settle in, all the points I have been telling my clients about rescue dogs I am seeing happen with Caper. For instance, my fenced in back yard: at first, he would not leave the patio unless I went with him, and he did not want to stay out there by himself. And now he likes to hang out in the yard if the weather is nice.
Over the years I continue to learn and improve as both a dog trainer and as a dog owner! Let me help you become a better dog owner. Dog training is about communication – if the word “No” worked, no one would need a dog trainer! I come to your home, where the issues occur, and teach you simple and effective ways to better communicate with your dog. You will see a change in your dog at the first lesson. Bark Busters training is personalized to fit your household and needs. You will enjoy learning how to communicate with your canine, and seeing your dog respond to the training is rewarding and encouraging. Build your relationship with your dog based on love, trust, and respect. Then, you will have a calm and relaxed home.
Learn to Speak Dog and transform your life.
