About Bill

Best Dog Training in Nashville North!

Welcome. I am Bill Cypert your local Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Behavioral Therapist in Nashville. I have had a passion for dogs my entire life! My German Shepard, Tiger was my best friend in childhood. Later I came home to my Golden Doodle, River after serving in Iraq with the Navy. Now the lab puppy in my picture has become a huge part of my world.

Over the past 20 years professionally I have been fortunate enough to write two top-rated books, speak at many global conferences, and most importantly help people. At the end of the day success is always dependent on change and our ability to thrive during these times. The people side of change applies here with our dogs too.

Today I am putting in the best work of my career working with people & their dogs! Every day is a new chance to do my best work providing dog behavioral therapy and training in home using natural, holistic and humane techniques. I can’t wait to help you become a happier family with well-behaved dogs.

Nashville Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

We were set on rehoming our mildly aggressive dog before we had Bill and Holly come and help us out. They are totally professional and experts at what they do. After only 1.5 hours we see a huge difference in all 3 of our dogs, and the way we interact with them, and look forward to continuing our training journey with them! Would HIGHLY recommend!
Our puppy was all over the place but Bill got him to listen up.
Rocco was very dog and children reactive. Bill and his stuffed dog haha, worked with us for a few lessons and we have seen big improvements.
Our dogs are 12 years old and 12 weeks old. They would fight over food and the puppy was peeing all over the place. Bill came in and immediately changed the whole vibe in our house for the better. He gave us the tools to get the dogs to behave much better. The change was at the very first lesson.
After just our initial lesson, we could not be more happy with the results. We already see a VERY noticeable difference with our sweet Dilly. Bill is a great coach and is also very knowledgeable with the "why". If you're wondering if this training works effectively, I can absolutely guarantee it did.
My two German Shepards were fighting each other and causing real problems for my husband and me. Bill came today and now our house is quiet for the first time in months. Thank you so much Bill for all you do!
Our parents back home gave us a dog from their farm. They thought it would be great for the kids in a new environment since I got stationed. Well apparently farm dogs are not the best inside, lol. We were about to take him back when we called Bark Buster Bill. Bill was great and now we are very happy with our newest family member!
My boyfriend and I adopted a pitbull mix over a year ago, but Marley had a tough time listening to us and was afraid of men. After struggling for some time, we decided to reach out to Bill for help. His natural way with dogs was exactly what we were looking for; he uses no shock collars nor prong collars. After the first lesson with Bill, we saw a huge difference in Marley's behavior and she is no longer afraid of men. We are so glad that we chose to contact Bill for help; it was the best decision for our pup! Thanks Bill! You made a world of difference in Marley's life.
We have a new baby coming in a few months and were primarliy worried about how our dog HollDoll was going to react. She sometimes guards her toys, the sofa and other things. Plus she barks at people walking by constantly. Bill was a life saver! He showed us how to work with HollDoll so that we are all happy. We are even carrying around a baby doll wrapped up giving it attention so HollDoll gets used to it. Who knew? lol
They are absolutely awesome dog trainers! Just when you think all hope is lost on being able to take your pride and joy out for a nice walk because she wants to eat all the other dogs..bam! Here comes the experts. I have three very large monsters. One is practically a horse (Great Dane) and I couldn’t take her out because she is so much stronger and actually bigger than me. But bark busters knows all the tricks. In some areas of training you get instant results. While other areas need lots of consistency and patience, you can still see a change immediately! My husband and I have just started the training and I’m excited to see the end result. Bill, Holly and Karen are fabulous. Not only are they patient with my monsters but with us too. You have constant contact with the trainers if you need them. Quick response and they also check in with you to make sure things are ok. Highly recommend this training for your pet. You won’t be disappointed.
Our puppy was barking, peeing in the house, and destroying the pillows every chance he got. Bill taught us the Bark Busters way and now we have a much more peaceful home.
My puppy Loki was all over the place. He needed help with potty training, jumping, whining and coming back when I called him. Bill came in and changed the whole scene immediately. At the end of the first lesson I had the tools I needed to get Loki on track. Bill has come back to work with us on advanced training since and all I can say is wow!
My dog was acting aggressively toward family members and our other pets. I was considering rehoming our boy due to safety concerns but after just one session i see huge improvement. It will be a long road but Bill and Holly were beyond helpful and so knowledgeable, you can really see the years of experience they have between them. They are helping to nurture the relationship between my family and my beloved dog and teaching me skills and confidence to be able to continue the training alone between sessions. I would hugely recommend to get the peace back in your home!

FROM GOOGLE: The team is amazing with years of experience they can restore peace in your home, and confidence in your ability, and the leadership your dogs need to live happy lives together. I have 13 dogs and made progress within our first hour of training. I could not imagine a better methodology or team and following the program will fundamentally improve the quality of our lives. Thank you Bill, Holly and Karen for bringing our home the balance we so desperately needed.
Wow is all I can say! Bill was great with Cujo my dog. The primary issue was him peeing in various places around the house and going nuts when people came to the door. In one visit Bill got us most of the way home. By the time Bill was done with lesson two we were all set. It was amazing.
My beautiful girl Layla was being a terror. She would guard her food, bark at everyone and run away any chance you got. Bill came in and worked with her, me really, and now Layla is a completely different girl. Thank you Bill!
Bill helped us understand how to better communicate with our dogs. He taught us how to "speak dog" which blew us away. We should have called him sooner.
I am amazed!
Bill is amazing! We've worked with a bunch of trainers, and nothing compares to how confident we now feel about reducing our dog's anxiety! Our grown children could not believe the change in Muffin. They are now calling to get on Bill’s schedule ASAP. Thanks again Bill for spending time in what felt like a “therapy” session with us!
Bill saved our Deuce’s life literally as we were at the end of our rope. We were ready to return him to the shelter where they told us we were his last shot. Bill was amazing!!! He taught us in just a few lessons how to communicate with Deuce on his own level. The change was incredible and almost instant. Yes, we have to work on it everyday but now we have a great dog and we owe it all to Bill at Bark Busters!
Awesome trainer! Bill knew how to work with me to relate to my boy Disco and create a peaceful, happy, structured environment! Skilled, friendly, really knows his stuff. I am so happy that I contacted Bark Busters!
We have a family farm. The dogs would not stop barking at each other outside and fighting when they were inside. My sister had got bit when she tried to stop the fighting. We were just about to rehome or worse to two of our dogs when we call Bark Busters. Bill got our situation. He grew up on property like ours. This guy totally changed everything within a couple hours. He showed us how to talk to our dogs and got us to actually listen to them too. I can not believe how big of change has already happened! 5 stars for Bill and Bark Busters.
Bill is amazing! We had issues with our 4 yr old Jack Russell, Jack. Jack totally took over and we let him do it. Little did we know that it was our actions and reactions that created this little monster. Extreme separation anxiety led to him ripping apart our sofa cushions, shoes and anything else he could get his teeth into. We sent him away for training. Three weeks and $4,500 later he slipped right back in to his old behaviors after being back home for a couple weeks. After trying everything else we finally called Bark Busters. Bill saved the day!!! He knows dogs and people better than anyone I have ever met. He answered our questions and gave us the tools to work with Jack every day. After just a couple visits the change in Jack was huge. We now have a happy life with Jack. I wish I called Bark Busters sooner, Bill is the best!
We were worried about hosting Thanksgiving with Caesar our dog being so aggressive to people. Bill had 2 visits with us and we were shocked at how well he behaves now. Everyone was asking what happend to him and we were like you gotta call Bill at Bark Busters.
