Best Dog Training in the Central Valley & Stockton, CA!
Welcome, my name is Sarah Harrington, your Bark Busters dog trainer and behavioral therapist for the Central Valley and Stockton areas.
For almost 20 years, my mother - Barbara Gazley - had served the Central Valley successfully training hundreds of local dogs and dog owners. I am honored to follow in her footsteps and use the Bark Busters dog training method to help families in my community live happier lives with their dogs.
I live in Valley Springs with my husband, two sons and our dogs, Loretta and Honour - both 8 year old rescues. Before becoming a Bark Busters dog trainer, I worked at the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department as an inmate labor specialist for 28 years and the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office as an Investigative assistant for a year.
If you are experiencing behavioral issues with your dog, I can help! Contact me today to see immediate changes in your dog’s behavior.
I train dog owners and their dogs. You don’t have a bad dog. Your dog’s behavior is a function of your relationship with your dog, how your dog perceives you, and how you communicate with each other. Once I teach you to communicate with your dog using body language and voice tones, you will be able to tap into his natural instincts to help your dog feel safe so that he can relax and is not likely to misbehave. You will establish your place in the pack – as the “Top Dog”, and your dog will gladly relinquish control to you, knowing that he can trust you and that you will always keep him safe.
You will see some immediate results. By the time we finish our first training session, you will have begun to see some remarkable changes in your dog. Reinforcing the techniques for 10-20 minutes per day will allow your relationship with your dog to continue to grow and transform for the better. Training exercises are quick, easy, and fun.
I use only humane, dog-friendly methods. When you communicate in your dog’s native language using body language and voice tones, there is no need for treats nor clickers. I can help you train your dog’s brain, rather than its stomach, which makes for long-lasting results and a trusting and respectful relationship with your dog. I also never use harsh or physical methods such as prong collars, shock collars, e-collars, pinning, or alpha rolling, because I want your dog to trust you, never to fear you.
Our dog training methods can be applied to any breed, any age, and issue. Because all dogs speak the same language, our dog training system works for any breed. any age. any issue. Yes, even old dogs can learn new tricks. Rescue dogs, shelter dogs, puppies, senior dogs, dogs who are blind or deaf or have other disabilities … I love them all, and I can help them all, by tapping into their natural instincts.
Training is one-on-one and provided in the comfort of your own home. With dogs, behavioral issues originate in the home, so it is critical to begin training there, where your dog will be less distracted and more comfortable. When you and your dog are ready, we may also do training outside, and in higher distraction environments, such as a busy sidewalk or a park with a lot of foot traffic.
