For more than 30 years, Bark Busters has worked with dog owners and their canine companions to resolve severe dog behavior issues, teach dog obedience, and train puppies -- with the goal of helping families live happier lives together with their dogs.
Are you struggling with basic puppy training? (chewing, crate training, nipping, potty training)
Does your dog take you for walks around your neighborhood or become reactive to other dogs or people when on a leash?
Long stretches of time at home has led many dogs to suffer from separation anxiety - we can help!
Do you want a well-mannered dog who listens and respects you, as much as cuddles and plays?
I'm here to help you!
I teach pet parents the same natural communication methods that dogs understand by instinct. Miscommunication is often the cause of many problems, and this holds true with dog owners and their dogs. I help clear up the miscommunication, which is often at the root of many of your dog's behavioral issues, by teaching everyone in the house to speak the same language - dog!
Dogs learn best in a safe and familiar environment without distractions and/or disruptions. So, I come to your home, where most of your dog behavior issues either occur or begin, in order to build a foundation for better dog behavior. This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
I empower dog owners with effective, simple, time-efficient, and cruelty-free dog training techniques. No harmful methods. No unnecessary treats.
Whether you are teaching good habits to your puppy, introducing obedience training, or need to resolve a severe dog behavioral issue, I will partner with you to address your dog's behavior issues - large and small - such as:
When you learn to "speak dog," you'll see results in your dog's bad behavior, and nuture a positive relationship with your dog based on trust and mutual respect.
Becoming a trainer with Bark Busters was the best professional move I ever made. l love working with people, and having spent years as an account manager in corporate America, I have always valued the relationships with my clients.
I have always been a dog lover. Growing up, I had a golden retriever and a golden lab. 'Sherlock' and 'Muggsy' were a huge part of my youth and although they have been gone for about 30 years, I still dream about them to this day.
Blending my love for dogs and people is the perfect match, and I am passionate about working with you and your dog(s).
I currently have a Beagle Lab that brings unconditional love, joy, and laughter to my wife, kids, and I.
I first learned about Bark Busters from my cousin, Scott Schwab, who has been a Bark Busters trainer for nearly 20 years. He loves his career more than anyone I know, and I am grateful to follow in his footsteps.
Making a positive difference in the lives of others has always driven me. The fact that I get to do that for people and their dogs is something that I value tremendously.
