Best Dog Training the Inland Empire West!

After years of independent research and study of dog behavior and psychology, and having an affinity for rescue dogs and concern for their plight, it was a natural progression for me to join the Bark Busters family of dog behavioral therapists and trainers.

I am proud to bring Bark Busters Home Dog Training to the Inland Empire. I'll be marking my territory in every city that touches the 210-from the 15 to the 57.

Every wonderful dog in my life has been a "rescue dog." Working with rescue dogs, one sees just about every bad behavior a dog can come up with. I currently share my house with three ever-challenging German shepherds: 12-year-old Hannah, 1-year-old Ember, and 6-month-old Rowdy. I love working with them every day and watching them grow into being nice, stable dogs as they stay fun and enjoy life.

Too many dogs are abandoned or abused because owners do not know how to control the dog's undesirable behavior. They get frustrated and give up trying, thinking the situation hopeless.

Please do not let this happen to your dog. It is NOT hopeless.

Dogs speak Dog. No matter how old or what breed, they all speak the same language. And no matter how old or what breed, an undesirable behavior can be changed.

My private lessons take place right in your home and are customized to your dog and your family. I will teach you the Bark Busters natural training methods and how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands-using voice tones and body language-and without ever using harsh punishment or physical abuse. All our methods have been proven to work.

I will teach you how to gain control of your dog through effective leadership. It's simple, its fun and, most importantly, it works. It will take a couple of hours, not months, to see a major improvement in your dog's behavior. You will see positive changes during our first lesson.

With Bark Busters written "Lifetime of the Dog Guarantee," we will be your support partners for the rest of your dog's life. This gives you the opportunity to call us back anytime-if a new problem arises or you just need a refresher-with never another charge.

So, whether it's a major behavior problem like aggression or you just want to walk the dog instead of it being the other way around, I can help you.

Together we can make a happy dog. And that will make a happy family.

Bark Busters Home Dog Training Services

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.
