The Best Dog Training in Sarasota!
Welcome. My name is Susan McNichol and I am your local Bark Busters Master Dog Trainer. I’ve been lucky to view dog training from all perspectives - yours, your dog’s and as the dog trainer. I know how frustrated you are feeling because one of my first dogs, Desiree, was a rescue who didn’t listen to a word I said! I tried everything from different trainers to different types of classes. Nothing worked. Not until my daughter introduced me to Bark Busters was I able to have a well-behaved dog.
Since then I have successfully trained hundreds of dogs throughout Sarasota to be the obedient dogs their pet parents want! Fortunately, Bark Busters has a network of trainers all over the world should we come across a rare issue we haven’t seen before. Here's what you can expect from the Bark Busters method:
Immediate results. After our first lesson your dog’s behavior will change dramatically and you’ll see immediate results. We’ll train in your home where most issues occur and where your dog is most comfortable. Our first lesson will be 2 – 3 hours. You’ll soon discover that in-home dog training provides the fastest results.
Dog-friendly methods. I will use only positive humane dog training methods not shock collars. Because every dog is different, we will develop a one-on-one training program that addresses your dog’s specific issues. I can help you overcome: Aggression, Barking, Chewing, Digging, Fear of other dogs or people, Lunging at the door, Jumping, Separation anxiety, Sibling rivalry, and more!
I train dog owners not dogs. What you’ll realize is that the way you communicate with your dog will change. By learning to be the “Top Dog” and assuming control, your dog will no longer have to protect you. He’ll be more relaxed and you’ll be less stressed. Lifetime Support Guarantee. Wherever Bark Busters has a trainer, should a new problem arise if you move, we can help.
Don’t wait, you and your dog can start having a great relationship.

Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.
This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love. Most people don't know how to appeal to a dog's natural sense of leadership or communication. We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.
