Meet Pat, Sheryl & April, Your Local Certified Dog Trainers

Home Dog Training in Katy, Sugar Land, Richmond, Missouri City, Fulshear & Hockley!

Welcome. We are Pat, Sheryl and April Conn, your local Bark Busters Dog Trainers and Dog Behavioral Therapists. We have really enjoyed teaching over 1,500 families over the last 13 years Bark Busters techniques so that they can be the leader of the pack and communicate with their dogs in a way their dog understands so that they can successfully train their dog.

It is great to see the looks on owners faces when they see how quickly and easily they were able to correct their dog’s behavior problems. Many of them were doubtful that anything would work. Some had already spent many weeks and lots of money with other trainers without results. They cannot believe the excellent results and the amount of control they were able to achieve in just 2 to 3 hours.

We have successfully trained owners how to stop their dogs from barking and jumping on people at the front door, nuisance barking at neighbors and golfers, pottying in the house, pulling them down the street on walks, barking at other dogs on walks, playing too rough, nipping and biting, running out the door, being demanding, and much more.

Dogs have always been a very important part of our family. For many years, Pat has successfully been training our dogs for bird hunting and field trial competitions. However, an obedience-trained dog does not mean that there are not behavioral problems, especially when it came to having our bird dogs also be house pets.

We had learned to live with the typical behavioral problems. Then, we were introduced to the Bark Busters method of training where the owners learn to be the leader of the pack and communicate with dogs in a way that dogs understand.

Witnessing the transformation of our dogs was incredible! Two of our dogs had fought with each other for over six years. Working with Bark Busters in less than three hours, they could be in the same room, walk past each other and sit beside us without fighting!

Bark Busters gave us the knowledge, tools and confidence to work with all six of our dogs to correct each of their bad habits. We were so excited by what we experienced that we decided to join Bark Busters and go through Bark Busters intensive training program so that we can help other dog owners experience the miracle that we did.

We hope you will give us the opportunity to work with you and your dog so that you will not only be able to love your dog, but also be able to enjoy your dog to the fullest. You will be amazed!

Pat and Sheryl with Barkbusters came out to help us with our Maltipoo puppy! She barks at anything that moves and bolts out the door as soon as we open it. Now we have the tools to use and she responds! They have been a huge support when I reach out and have answered all of my silly questions ☺️. THANK YOU!!!!
Pat from Bark Busters was the help I needed to train my German Shepard how to walk on a leash without pulling and how to listen to my commands. So thankful for his support. I highly recommend Bark Busters in person training.
Thank you for the training! My dogs have already started responding accordingly.
Our virtual training was roughly 1 week ago and we are thrilled with the improvement in our dogs behavior! We have seen better behavior in all aspects covered. We were amazed at the response to the doorbell ring training during the virtual. It worked!!! Great success in rug digging, pulling on walks and barking in yard.
Quick help when needed! Great to work with! Worked with Pat twice - 2nd dog!
Pat Conn was extremely calm and patient during our training session. He explained every step well and in a way I understood.
Harry has made tremendous strides in his behavior. People who know him are commenting and praising how quiet & well behaved he is now. I think we are 92% there to perfect.
Very impressed with the program. Gunner had been showing aggression with food. Pat showed us how to fix. I was amazed at how well Gunner responded. All 3 dogs have learned and while Baby Girl still likes to get her bark in, she ultimately responds to the commands. Gunner still likes to play rough with the others, but he too is learning to respond to our guidance. We have been practicing door work and back! Very impressed with the simplicity and effectiveness of the program.
It's amazing how quickly things changed with 4 dogs in my home. Taking the leadership back from the smallest dog worked wonders for a more peaceful household! I'm also able to see more clearly who says yes to who!
Pat is an awesome trainer. I continue to use the skills everyday.
Pat was an excellent teacher. He communicated everything effectively and answered all of my questions. I especially liked how he went around the room and asked us to practice the communication method. He was on time, professional, and friendly! I really feel that Pat gave me the tools and communication methods we needed to have a better relationship with our beloved pet. Thank you, Pat!
Pat was very thorough & tactics taught are working very well. My dogs are like different dogs.
Training session began on time. Pat was patient and didn't mind stopping for my questions. I appreciated his explanations for the reasons behind the training aids and actions. It helped put everything in perspective. This training should be required for all dog owners. Imagine how happy both the owners & dogs would be!
This was a transforming experience! In 3 hrs Stella was a different dog. She became calm. This is not to say she's perfect, but the change in behavior is amazing! Within 2 days she stays right by my side while walking. It's so cute... She will look up at me as if to say "Aren't you proud of me." We still have a ways to go, but SO much better. I've already recommended you all to the lady who rescued Stella!
Pat was very patient and thorough in his training.
We used Bark Busters about 8 years ago and were happy with the results then and are very pleased this time also. Pat was very good and each problem we had was covered.
The session was very helpful - my husband and myself were starting to wonder if raising another puppy was the right decision. With the help we received today and the training techniques, we are hopeful that Maxwell will be manageable and we can be the family we want with him. We love him terribly, so this is very exciting for us.
This was the best money I ever spent. Within 30 minutes of working with our dog, Pat helped correct Boomer's jumping behavior. Pat was a pleasure to work with - so knowledgeable! This technique is wonderful and life changing.
Our family was able to see results in an instant once we learned the technique. We were immediately able to take charge of our pack once we knew how to correct our dogs. The program helped us address barking, fighting between our dogs, aggression towards other dogs & people and annoying behaviors in the house. We were so amazed at the results and are grateful that there is new peace in our household!
I am so surprised! Our first session we were learning at the kitchen table while she was outside the window and she was listening. We were amazed how quickly she caught on and displayed great behavior! We are all amazed!
Thank you for saying your information multiple times. That helped the information to sink in.
I was very pleased with the instant results. It was hard to believe my dog responded so quickly.
Awesome. Love seeing my dogs respond to command. Can't wait to see how my home changes!
Very well explained. Thank you
Pat was very thorough and detailed. We were amazed at how quickly we saw results right during the call. He answered all of our questions and did a great job explaining everything to our whole family, even our teenager. He is funny and easy to understand. We will most definitely recommend him and this program.
Our dog has changed so much since starting Bark Busters. At first I was nervous that that the training would change his personality or be too harsh but Finn has just become more himself and more a member of our family because of this training. We continue to see improvements with his behavior!
