Welcome! We are Annette, Casey, and Haley Heathman - a mother, son, and daughter trio - that have the unique perspective of being both dog owners and dog trainers. Our journey with Bark Busters in The Villages began when Haley brought home an adorable Dalmation named Georgia as she was heading off to college. She was afraid I would get lonely as an empty nester. In no time, I managed to turn this cute bundle of spots into an ill-behaved Diva. She ruled the roost. Bark Busters taught me to reclaim my leadership role and return the peace in my home as I grew to be in charge. Now we have the priviledge to help others with similar issues!
Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. Whether you adopted a puppy or rescued an older dog, we can help.
It’s not that your dog is bad or you are a bad dog trainer. Dogs learn to communicate by following their Mom and siblings in a pack when they are first born. They arrive in your home and they have no idea what you are saying because they can’t speak English. We teach you how to communicate with your dog in a way that is easy for you to learn, and easy for your dog to understand.
“Bark Busters was exactly what I needed to help understand my little pack and to help us communicate with each other. Within one visit, I saw a difference in the dogs and me! I became much more confident in letting them know what I expected and they became less anxious when they could understand me.” - Patti R.
“I absolutely love Casey! After just the first lesson my puppy has improved by so much it’s like she is a different dog. She is so much better with her jumping on people and walking with me on the leash that I almost can’t believe she is the same puppy.” - Christie K.
Often Bark Busters is called in by vets or frustrated dog owners after other dog training methods have failed. Our dog training methods can be applied to any issue you may be having because they are not breed or size dependent. We only use positive, humane methods that are based on the way dogs naturally communicate.
“I have used Petsmart training for Sabrina before her Bark Busters training. Their only recommendation was to buy a bark collar which we did but Sabrina would get zapped and still barked, whereas she did not after the Bark Busters training." - Dolores L.
You can not believe the relief and joy we see on dog owner’s faces once the training sessions are over. They have a well-behaved dog and we have another happy client!

Bark Busters is a miracle . I had used the service in Folly Beach SC about ten years ago . When we lost our twelve year old Husky /Lab mix last August we were devastated .

Casey worked with me and my dog Daryl to help manage the dog's behavior. Daryl was adopted and initially appeared aggressive with other dogs and toward strangers. He is a boxer mix, so very strong when he pulled on the lead. Within a short time, first 2 or 3 sessions, Casey had taught me how to manage Daryl so that I was more in control. Here i...
Casey is awesome! I called Bark Busters because my fur baby, Sparkle, would not stop nipping me. By the end of the first session, Casey taught me how to control this behavior and she has not nipped since. In subsequent sessions, we were able to master leash walking, greeting visitors (without scaring them), greeting mom and dad (without jumping), a...
I love German Shepherds. My last Shepherd, who I loved dearly, however, had "behavior problems." When she passed this last November, I knew I wanted/needed a new companion. I brought home my little eight week old ShadowKat and I knew I was in trouble. He was so cute; I was soooo in love with him. How could I discipline such a wonderful dog. A...
