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!
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.
I am amazed!
We’ve only done the first session so far, but what a difference it’s made. We had an issue with our dogs not listening well and acting out, and in the short time that Bill was over we saw a huge difference in the way our dogs responded to us. Improvements come every day with the daily homework, and we are very much looking forward to continuing our sessions with Bill and BarkBusters
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.
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.
Bill is Amazing! After the first session I saw improvement in my dog! He is firm and patient with me and explains the methodology of Bark Busters in a way that makes complete sense! I was at my wits end, not knowing what to do to help my dog. Bill immediately saw the problems I was having with 14 month old Miya, my chocolate Lab, and continues to address them with each visit! I only wish that I would have contacted him sooner!
Bill helped me understand my dogs psychology. Why they were behaving like they do and what to do about it. I can not tell you how much better things are now for all of us. The investment was well worth the money!
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!
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.
We are pregnant and thank goodness we called Bill. Our dog would jump up constantly, surf the counters, bark non-stop and just be generally annoying, We were very concerned about our baby that is due in June. Bill worked with us and our dog. He even gave us a bunch of tips to get our dog ready for the birth and subsequent crying. Our dog loves our attention and has no idea how much that is going to change in a few short weeks. Bill helped her and us a ton in getting ready for the big day and the rest of our lives together as a happy family.
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.
Wow. So glad we called Bill. This actually worked.
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.
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
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!
Cash was stealing food from the counters and table, plus would go crazy when anyone came over. Bill showed us how to get him to behavior right from the start.
We have 5 wiener dogs that were barking a ton, charging the fence, rushing the front door and marking all the time. It was like they just peed over each other all day on our furniture. Bill helped us see the underlying issues and gave us the tools to work on them. It has been hard work over the past couple months but now we have no marking inside, the barking is a ton better and they are perfect with door manners.
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.
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!
Bill really knows his stuff and this training was worth every penny!!!
Our dog was going nuts every time the Amazon guy or anyone else would come to the door. He also was pull on the leash. Bill solved both these issues in one lesson! It was so cool to watch!
Fluff was a very bad girl. She would pee all over, jump on people at the door, protect any food she could get near. Overall she was just a mess and it was not a happy home. Bill from Bark Busters came in and put her in her place and us in ours. I loved that he did not use shock collars, prongs or anything painful at all on our little Fluff. He just focused on teaching us how to talk to her in way she understood. Thanks Bill!
Our dog was all over the place. He was good inside but as soon as we tried to walk him he went nuts. Bill came in and worked with him and us. He taught us how to communicate with Spot in a way he would understand. Now we walk him twice a day and it is a joy.
