G'day!, Welcome to the Best Dog Training Springfield!
Stan is your local dog behavior expert. Since joining Bark Busters in 2009, Stan has worked with thousands of dogs and owners to improve their lives. Whether you are experiencing challenging behavior issues, welcoming a puppy to your family, or just want a better-behaved companion Stan can help.
YOUR HOME, YOUR DOG
Your dog is most comfortable in his normal environment. Stan comes to your home to work with you, your family and your dog where the problems most often occur. He is happy to share his knowledge and experience to help bring calm to the chaos. Stan says, “One of the reasons I enjoy in-home training is being able to see all the variables that are impacting the dog and the people. I can help reduce the ones that have a negative effect and speed up the training process as much as possible.”
Since much unwanted behavior is a relationship and/or communication problem, Stan focuses on strengthening the bond, trust and respect between owner and dog. You’ll be happy to know that neither bribery nor coercion is required to help your dog understand your expectations. Stan doesn’t recommend the use of prong collars, shock collars, or any practice, exercise or technique that interferes with a positive relationship. By the same token, you won’t have to use a treat to get your dog to perform an exercise or respond to a command.
Stan customizes the training process to meet your specific situation. Dogs with fearful personalities require a different approach than those with confident or assertive personalities. Sometimes people in the home have a different relationship to the dog than others in the same household. Some owners are dog-experienced and dog-educated. Others may be dealing with a dog for the first time. Stan quickly assesses the situation and focuses on your success. Many owners experience remarkable results during the first lesson. Many leave reviews thanking Stan for helping them understand their dogs and giving them peace of mind.
Many owner’s have worked with Stan to improve or resolve the following:
Puppies come to us with many behaviors related to being young, undisciplined and alone. Stan will help you speed up the learning and maturing process. He will also show you how to avoid problem-behaviors that can occur as your dog becomes larger and stronger. Many owners find the Guaranteed Lifetime Support service to be an incredible value for the life of their puppy.

Stan is wonderful! He is patient and informative. I saw immediate improvement in my dog's behavior after only a few minutes of our session. The best part is that he comes to our home to train in our own environment. I highly recommend Stan and Bark Busters!
I would definitely recommend Stan and Bark Busters. I tried group lessons elsewhere, read books, etc., and this was going to be my last attempt at getting the biting under control before finding her a new home. I was that frustrated. I was truly amazed to see the techniques Stan showed me work so quickly! I felt like the confidence levels within me...
We are so thankful for Stan. We have worked with Stan for several years on a variety of behavior issues concerning a number of different canine companions. Although we have several dogs all with different temperaments and behavior issues, he is able to analyze the behavior in the context of the environment and provides very helpful insight and sugg...
Larry is better already. It is amazing that changing the things Stan pointed out could make such an impact on Larry's behavior. The things I have been working on with Larry have made him easier to deal with and he is more compliant with everything.
My family's dog Smokie is a recent addition to the household and had severe aggression problems including ferocious barking, snarling and biting. He reacted strongly to my presence in the house and I could never be near him for fear of being bitten. After Stan's visit Smokie is a whole new dog! Using simple commands and easy training methods the wh...
Stan was excellent in helping me to understand everything clearly. My dogs are responding to me very well and I love that they are listening without having to give them treats. I didn't understand much about dog behavior & Stan helped me by teaching me proper body language that my dogs respond to. I feel secure knowing I can always call or e-mail h...
We have had 2 dogs which we raised from pups. They lived long and happy lives. We went to Pet Smart one Sat for cat food and my wife walked out with a rescue dog. Best guess on our Fenway was 1 year to 18 months old. After a couple of weeks it became extremely clear to me that I had no experience training our new member. About a month earl...
Stan was awesome at explaining everything. He made sure of our understanding before proceeding. We observed results by the end of our first session and could see a definite difference after the second session. The natural training techniques are great and have positive outcomes. My dog doesn't even realize we are "training" him. He seems to think o...| Springfield
