At Bark Busters, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans, which is at the root of many dog behavioral issues, by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!
My nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches pet parents the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively – all in the safe, familiar environment of your own home.
Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why I come directly to your home, on your schedule, to build an effective foundation for better dog behavior. This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
We believe in empowering dog owners with simple, effective, time-efficient, and cruelty-free techniques that will work alongside dogs’ natural instincts.
Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training. Whether teaching good habits to your new puppy, introducing dog obedience training, or resolving severe dog behavioral issues, I can partner with you to tackle your dog's behavior issues large and small, such as:
When you Learn to Speak Dog the Bark Busters Way, you get real results – and nurture positive relationships and lasting emotional bonds with your canine family member.
I grew up rescuing and rehabilitating all kinds of animals, from street dogs and cats to wild and exotic birds and reptiles. I studied community health science at Texas Women’s University and then went to work as a special education teacher in the public sector for several years.
I then moved to San Francisco where my partner and I adopted a very cute and lovable but also very fearful and reactive pitbull named Indy. She was housed at the SFPCA shelter for over nine months before we met her and fell in love with her big head and oversized ears. As it turns out, she was so sweet and lovable but just needed to learn to trust us and become more confident in her surroundings. She suffered from "stranger danger" and leash reactivity. Anytime we took her on walks she would bark, lunge, and pull at any person or dog that she saw. Even though I had experience with many different animal temperaments, I was at a loss with how to help our pooch cope in the outside world.
After much internet research and YouTube training videos we finally enlisted Bark Busters to help with our precarious pup. We met with Karen, our local Bark Busters trainer, and saw results within the first session! I was hooked and when the opportunity arose, I seized the chance to become a Bark Busters Home Dog Trainer myself to make an impact in my own community helping other dog owners with similar needs.
As an animal lover, a former Bark Busters client myself, and now a certified Bark Busters dog trainer and behavioral therapist, I can't wait to meet you and your pup and help you to live a happier life together with you dog using Bark Busters effective, humane, and efficient dog training methods.
