Hi my name is Katherine Simkins and I am your Reno dog trainer. I have successfully trained hundreds of dogs throughout the Reno area – rescue dogs, pure breeds, puppies, senior dogs and more!

Bark Busters Works for Any Dog, Any Age and Any Issue<

  • Do you love your dog but not some of his behaviors?
  • Did you recently adopt a rescue dog that you need help with?
  • Did you just get a new puppy who thinks his name is “no”?

What Differentiates Bark Busters

  1. We educate owners not train dogs. Neither you nor your dog are doing anything wrong – it is simply a failure to communicate. Dogs learn to communicate in packs from their Moms when they are born. Then they land at your house and they have no idea what you are saying. I teach you how to communicate with your dog and establish yourself as the “Pack Leader” in a loving way.
  2. You will see immediate results. You will see major changes in your dog’s behavior after your first lesson.

“This program was amazing. After the first lesson I saw immediate improvement in my dog’s behavior, not just on the issues we had worked on, but in everything I had been struggling with my dog’s generally pushy behavior in the house, but also her aggression towards other dogs.” Amy C

  1. We only use positive methods. We do NOT use any physical pain – NO shock, pinch, prong or choke collars. Nor do we bribe with food. I’m the only one in this area that works the way I do.
  2. We are often called in after other training methods haven’t worked.

“I had been through everything to deal with my dog’s separation anxiety – even after 7 months of coaching from UC Davis' animal behavior program there was no change. None of the numerous medications made a difference in this dog - I began to think, 'He's just a high-strung dog, he'll always be this way, just adapt as best you can John.'

After one meeting with Katherine of Bark Busters, there was an immediate change in behavior! Its been a month now and he's the perfect dog! All I can talk about is what happened with my dog but, believe me, he was as tough as they come. He is my 5th dog and I can't imagine any dog that would not get results from this program - its great!” John M


About Your Reno Dog Trainer

It truly has been a privilege and an honor helping hundreds of dog owners for the past 10 years. I believe ALL dogs are pure spirits, non-judgmental, and have unlimited love to give. It’s with this compassion that I enter each and every home to help you begin your journey to have a happier, calmer, and well-behaved dog. Can you imagine how wonderful your life would be if you had the skills and knowledge to truly communicate your dog? That’s what I’ll be teaching you. I’ll be sharing how to speak dog the Bark Busters way! Our simple, natural and dog-friendly training techniques are based on the way dogs naturally communicate.

I must admit I enjoy working with ALL breeds, rescues, shapes, sizes, age, male or female. There hasn’t been a dog I haven’t liked!<

Take some time now and take the Behavior Rating Quiz<. My greatest joy is to see dogs in the “C’,“D” or “F” category rocket to become “A” dogs.

So, get started on your path to have a happier, calmer, and well-behaved dog. I’m just a phone call away!

My clients often say: “I wish I’d signed up for Bark Busters sooner.” Don’t wait – call me today!
