The Best Dog Training in Sarasota!

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:

  1. After our first lesson your dog’s behavior will change dramatically and you’ll see immediate results. We’ll train in your home where most issues occur and where your dog is most comfortable. Our first lesson will be 2 – 3 hours. You’ll soon discover that in-home dog training provides the fastest results.


Susan came to our house and immediately shared the Bark Buster techniques and within 24 hours we had a wonderfully changed dog.” Linda


  1. I will use only positive humane dog training methods not shock collars. Because every dog is different, we will develop a one-on-one training program that addresses your dog’s specific issues. I can help you overcome:
    1. Aggression
    2. Barking
    3. Chewing
    4. Digging
    5. Fear of other dogs or people
    6. Lunging at the door
    7. Jumping
    8. Separation anxiety
    9. Sibling rivalry
    10. And more!

“I never thought I would be able to train my dog without a shock collar until the training sessions with Susan.” Madison


  1. I train dog owners not dogs. What you’ll realize is that the way you communicate with your dog will change. By learning to be the “Top Dog” and assuming control, your dog will no longer have to protect you. He’ll be more relaxed and you’ll be less stressed.
  2. Lifetime Support Guarantee. Wherever Bark Busters has a trainer, should a new problem arise if you move, we can help.

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
