Welcome. My name is Susan McNichol and I am your local Bark Busters Master Dog Trainer. I’ve been lucky to view dog training from all perspectives -- yours, your dog’s and as the dog trainer. I know how frustrated you are feeling because one of my first dogs – Desiree – was a rescue who didn’t listen to a word I said! I tried everything – different trainers and different types of classes. Nothing worked. Not until my daughter introduced me to Bark Busters was I able to have a well-behaved dog.
Since then I have successfully trained hundreds of dogs throughout Sarasota to be the obedient dogs their pet parents want! Fortunately, Bark Busters has a network of trainers all over the world should we come across a rare issue we haven’t seen before.
What You Can Expect From Bark Busters:
“Susan came to our house and immediately shared the Bark Buster techniques and within 24 hours we had a wonderfully changed dog.” Linda
“I never thought I would be able to train my dog without a shock collar until the training sessions with Susan.” Madison
Don’t wait -- you and your dog can start having a GREAT relationship.
“We have an obedient, loving and positively delicious dog. He really is so much fun to be around” Sharon

I rescued George a year ago, and he is now two years old. He still has the energy of a puppy, and had the mind set of an untrained adult wanting to do whatever he pleased. Susan was an excellent trainer (training my dog as well as me) gaining respect from my dog immediately. I feel confident in his current progress, and for his improvement in the f...
Susan was great! She helped us cover all topics we were in need for! We are so please with Chiefa's outcome. She has come such a long way in just a month Thanks Susan you're awesome !!
Bosco is a 3 year old Havanese that barked, jumped and was out if control when someone came to the door. Susan gave us the tools to keep him back from the door and wait until we released him. We worked with Bosco every day for at least 20 minutes and within a few days he did it perfectly. We now can answer the door, receive food or packages with hi...
Susan is an awesome trainer! After the very first lesson we could already see a big difference in the way our German Shepherd Dog, Jake, acts. Before Susan, Jake would literally pull you down the road and bark at everything, people were scared to death of him. Now, he walks loose leash and is way more friendly towards people and other dogs. Jake on...
Susan was awesome! Her love for animals comes through in her training techniques. She is very caring and compassionate and understands the bond between the pets and their owners. She was very professional and gave us the training that we needed and our dogs needed to get to the outcome we all wanted. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
From the moment I called Susan, I knew she was going to be the best fit for our pup and family. I remember Susan telling me that she usually has dogs trained within three sessions but in order for that to happen it takes the family to also put in the time and work. I thought for sure my 7-month-old puppy would need some extra help but I was shocked...
I have a 10 year old female boxer, Lexie and had just moved to an apartment complex with her. She had previously lived in a single family home for her entire life. She was lunging and barking at cars, people and other dogs. Susan was a Lifesaver. I can ‘t say enough about the wonderful techniques she taught Lexie and I. We will forever be grate...
I would like to praise the training for us and our Lab puppy that Susan has provided while we have been in Florida. Bailey is a very large, strong 8 month old who has been quite difficult for us to control. Susan has demonstrated training that has helped us progress in controlling him around people and other dogs. coming when called, and leash wa...
Susan was such an amazing trainer! She worked with my daughter, my mom, and I to train our 7-month-old golden retriever. After the first session, he was completely different - he was calm and listening much better. We all could not believe it. Susan did a great job really discussing and answering all the multiple questions we had. It only took a to...
Susan is a wonderful trainer. I contacted Susan when I was seriously considering giving my girl up. After the first lesson Susan had me convinced that Sheba is both a very happy and a smart dog. She learns quickly what is expected so I learned quickly that the biggest challenge is not Sheba, but for me to consistently apply what we learn. Susan...Renee H | Sarasota, Florida
