Meet Your Trainer Phyllis McGough




Welcome. My name is Phyllis McGough and I am your local San Antonio dog trainer. Since 2007, I have had the opportunity to train thousands of dogs throughout our local area. I attribute my success to the Bark Busters training system which is unlike any other.

What differentiates us from other dog trainers?

I Will Teach You To Be The Pack Leader
Dogs learn how to communicate with each other when they are born as a part of the pack. They mimic the behavior of their Mom and siblings which is why those first eight weeks with their litter is so important. They come into your home and you start speaking a foreign language to them. I will teach you how to communicate in a language your dog understands and is easy for both of you to learn.

Our first training lesson is 2 to 2 1/2 hours in your home. Why in your home? This is where your dog is most comfortable and the majority of problems occur. That’s why many “training classes” are ineffective – they cater to the average dog. I will develop a customized plan which deals with YOUR dog’s specific issues. Each lesson is a distinctively designed; every dog is an individual with their own personalities, temperaments and experiences, as are people.

You Will See Immediate Results
Unlike some training systems that may take weeks to see any results, you will see immediate behavioral changes during our first lesson!

“Charley was head of his puppy class several years ago, but had begun recently to “train us” and was not behaving well. Only one lesson with Phyllis made a HUGE difference. She educated us, and put us in charge of Charley’s behavior. She made us the ‘leader of the pack’. What a difference. He could now be head of the class once again.” Harry & Benay C.

I Use Only Dog Friendly Techniques
Bark Busters only uses positive training methods – no harsh treatment! We do not believe in prong or shock collars or negative reinforcement … this breeds aggression!

“Once Phyllis explained the way my precious puppies think everything else made perfect sense. The very first day we all noticed such a drastic difference. I love there is no physical discipline.” Theresa B.

I Offer a Guaranteed Lifetime Support
This assures you a trainer for the entire life of your dog without additional fees. One thing in life is for sure: change... family members come, or go, moves, schedule changes, new jobs, and other things happen which affect us and our dogs. With our Guaranteed Lifetime Support", you are never alone. I am always a phone call or a text away.

You Will Be Happy With Your New Relationship With Your Dog
Our clients often tell us they are impressed with their dogs’ response and can’t believe it is the same dog after our training. They notice that their dogs are calmer and happier with direction from them. I want you to feel that way too!

I am a believer! I can honestly say I am amazed at how effective this training is. It solved problems I didn’t even know I had. My friends and neighbors have even noticed & commented on how much calmer Grayson is when we go for walks. He can sit at the end of the driveway while another dog walk by without barking & going crazy – that was unheard of even a month ago!” Kim D.
