Puppies learn from their mothers and siblings how to live with dogs. They don’t teach puppies how to live with people. That’s up to us when we bring them home to live with us. We love helping people with their puppy training and seeing them grow into great dogs.
Older dogs can have issues which can concern their families. We regularly help with issues of aggression, separation anxiety, or just teaching the basics of walking without pulling, or how to greet without jumping up. No matter what issues your dog(s) might have, Bark Busters can help. You can teach an old dog new tricks!
We teach our clients how to train their dogs. Every dog is an individual and there is not a one size fits all course of action. Before starting on a program with our clients we spend time getting to know them, their dog(s), the situation, and their goals. Your thoughts, feelings and ideas are crucial to the process as is your commitment to practice daily the exercises that we will teach you.
Clear communication with your dog is a vital part of teaching your dog how to live happily in your home with your family. We will help you understand not only how your dog communicates with you, but also how to communicate in a way that is easy for your dog to understand. As with any relationship, clear communication is a key element.
Great relationships are built a upon a bond which includes respect, trust, and safety. We never use any harsh, or physical methods or equipment, and never would use or recommend pinch, shock, prong or choke collars. We never use force or make dogs do anything.
We also don't bribe dogs and we won’t turn you into a treat dispenser (treats are great, as a treat!)
We work with all breeds of dogs and all ages, and we are experts at helping families with multiple dogs.
Our efficient and effective dog training methods allow you to be well on your way to having an improved relationship with your dog in two-to-three hours! And, if you purchase our gold package, we'll be your dog trainer for the life of your dog at no additional cost. With our Life of Dog Support Guarantee, if new issues arise or bad habits return, we're your dog training partner for the life of your dog.
Whether teaching good habits to your new puppy, or resolving long-time dog behavioral issues, I help you tackle issues large and small, including:
Growing up in Tampa, my siblings and I had all the pets - dogs, cats, gerbils, fish, and even newts. As an adult, I have cared for some amazing rescues, from Great Danes to Shi Tzus. I look forward to helping you learn how to communicate with your awesome dog.
I work with dog owners in Greater Tampa including Bayshore, Channelside, Davis Islands, Hernando Beach, Hyde Park, Nine Eagles, Odessa, South Tampa, Starkey, and Ybor City, to name a few!
