Best Dog Training in Greater Rochester, NY!

AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator International Association of Canine Professionals

At Bark Busters, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans at the root of many behavioral issues, by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!

Welcome. I am Lee Trimble your Bark Busters Master Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Rochester. When I relocated to New York from Virginia, I was thrilled to have my entire family together again. Rochester is our forever home. I love the people here and their commitment to providing the best treatment for their pets.

For 17 years and 5,000 dogs and puppies, I have been helping families live a happier life with their best friends. I pride myself on being patient, caring, and perceptive of my client's needs, and I apply these attributes to their owners as well!

In addition to be a Bark Busters Master Certified Trainer, I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen Certified Evaluator, an International Association of Canine Professionals Member and a SPCA International Operation Baghdad Pups Trainer.

My varied background allows me to understand the pressures that corporate, self-employed, retired and stay-at-home owners experience. I have been able to apply this well-rounded knowledge to help solve problems in many difficult cases. I consider dog training to be a family affair - each dog's behavior is affected by their relationships.

I individualize my training approach to your goals, needs, and issues. My work can be done in your home or where problems are occurring. This is the only way your dog will learn to stop stealing off your kitchen counter, toileting in the dining room, pulling the children's clothing, digging up your flowers, chasing the cat, etc.! Bark Busters is best known for our work with aggression, and all other difficult behavior problems. We also excel at puppy training and general dog obedience training as well.

I wholeheartedly believe in our kind and caring methods after years of results, which is why Bark Busters offers a unique-to-our-industry Life of Dog Support Guarantee. There are no limits to the time spent with you; I am committed to solving your dog behavior problems, not just offering a limited program. And when satisfied, I continue to be available with guidance. I can work with you to tackle recurring or new problems for the life of your dog, free of additional charges. We aren't happy unless you remain happy!

Rochester East Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Lee is fantastic! He is working with us to solve a number of behavioral issues with our small dog. After just the first session our dog's behavior improved drastically. Everyone who comes into our home has noticed and appreciated the changes. Our dog also seems much more content, secure, and happy.
We have been dog owners for many years, but had never really taken the time to understand the way dogs interact and how they form bonds. When we got a new puppy that challenged us at every turn, we knew we needed help. The philosophy of Bark Busters aligned with what we had seen on The Dog Whisperer, so we went with that program. Lee Trimble was the trainer assigned to us, and the moment he walked in the door our puppy recognized that Alpha had arrived. Lee spent a lot of time with us and our puppy, and left us with homework on each visit. Establishing dominance and respect is the indispensable first element, and Lee showed us how to achieve it without even raising our voices. Having a respectful dog that recognizes her position in the family "pack" has been wonderful. The challenges have vanished, and we have a delightful, calm, and well-adjusted Border Collie that is a pleasure to own and be with. Our relationship with Lee continues - as our dog matures, she discovers new ways to challenge is, and Lee is always available for questions, recommendations, and guidance. His expertise is always helpful, and he always has a solid solution to any problem we have encountered. It is difficult to sing his praises sufficiently. Lee is just the best!
We couldn't believe the change in Ruby's behavior after her training lesson! Lee explained dog behavior so clearly. We are learning so much!!
I can't say enough good things about Lee. We adopted a 100 lb. lab, who bolts on a leash. I have been injured twice. He also was mouthing me to the point of bleeding, daily. I knew he was learning commands but would not comply without a treat. I was at my wits end. Lee's calm demeanor instantly set me at ease. This company is not a "one plan fits all dogs and people" and that's why I chose them. Lee assessed Cole and me and, it turns out, I was the problem. Cole did not see me as a pack leader and took every advantage of that. Lee assured me that everything would be okay. By the end of our session, the tables had turned. Lee literally gave me my life back, and hope for even better things to come. The VERY NEXT morning, I took Cole outside CALMLY AND CONFIDENTLY !!! What a feeling ! No fear, no dread ! Cole was a different dog and I am now a different person. Lee explained why Cole acted lovingly but yet, pushed me to tears. Lee is patient and will go over things as much as needed. Thanks to Lee, I now understand Cole's mindset better and it is a joy to bring my big boy out to play !!! I can't say enough about this company and especially Lee.
I was extremely impressed with how thorough and knowledgeable Lee was. Even more then that though I was in awe of how relaxed he made Elmer (and myself) feel in what would ordinarily be a stressful situation for the both of us.
Answered all questions. Put raising a puppy into prospective.
Lee explains everything. I could not control Esme to walk her, after one visit, we walked all around the yard this morning. She has jumped on to the counter once, I did the bah sound and she has not done it again.
I could cry with joy. Never thought peanut could act like a normal dog. It was a very y effective intervention. !
Lee did a great job evaluating Abby and letting us know our first steps to take and what to expect in the future. We have high hopes of having a great dog.
Lee did a great job. Papi responded well to his training.
Excellent trainer. Extremely knowledgeable, wonderful with Gizmo. Easy to understand his directions. So happy we have him.
Great lesson a lot of information! Matti is a puppy tends to be Stubborn
Lee was terrific. My dogs misbehaved when he arrived. He allowed it for a while then he instantly, with a single action sequence, brought them under his control. His instruction was simple, easy to understand. It made so much sense that I had to wonder "why didn't I think of that?" It was a wonderful experience and my dogs were greatly improved before he even left the house.
Lee was very patient and experienced. He really presented everything in an easy to understand way, and really seems to know what he is doing! My dog responded to him almost immediately, and I'm very excited to use the strategies I was taught to work with my pup moving forward!
Wonderful session with Lee Trimble! Informative and also pleasant, with discussions as well as applying them to training exercises in a gentle, practical and very helpful manner :)
Thank you for showing us how to work on their behaviors
I was super skeptical this would work. Especially on my 7 yr old, very stubborn and aggressive boy! But Lee did exactly what he said he would do, and he changed my dog in just one visit! We still have more work to do, but the immediate changes I saw in him using just one word really left me speechless. I am so glad I found Lee and I really believe he is going to help our family more than we know!
Lee is now Uncle Lee. He was wonderful with our dogs, and very gracious t their parents. We are very glad we chose bark busters!
Lee is very patient, thorough and knowledgeable. In only a few weeks we have a completely new dog, compliant, eager to please. I highly recommend Lee!
We learned a lot yesterday and have seen some improvement with him today. Also barking for Slingshot.
Fantastic job, can't give enough praise for the information and great job in training Ivan's owner.
Everything was great! Just going to take time and practice with my puppy.
I wasn’t expecting to see a big difference in my dogs after one session but they’re both listening much better and are much more relaxed and less aggressive with each other
Great experience. Lee is a fantastic trainer. He is very patient and his training experience is very evident. His instruction is clear and he adapts the training to coincide with the dog and owner’s needs as well as to changing situations during the session. Results are incredible with the first session.
We were extremely pleased with Mr. Lee Trimble who provided perfect training advice and guidance to us for our 13-month-old Shiba Inu as well as our 12-year-old Australian Silky terrier.

His mild and gentle manner of approach to our pets and also to us as owners were methodically implemented and the positive results for some major behavioral issues of the Shiba Inu were very evident with the first session.

Mr Trimble has shown us what a world-class and experienced trainer could do with pets and has been able to relieve a lot of stress for the owners and experience the joys of having a disciplined pet in the home.

We are confident that with the guidance of Mr. Trimble our pets would make very deep and positive strides towards an enjoyable and loving, stress-free relationship between us and them.

We are extremely thankful and grateful to Mr. Lee Trimble and the Bark Busters training program
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable!
