I love dogs and people, and I particularly love people who love their dogs. They are the best!
I have had dogs all of my life and have come to realize that despite our love for our dogs and our best intentions, oftentimes we can all use some help in making our dogs and the relationships we have with them the best that they can be.
I love to teach, solve problems and share Bark Buster insights into canine psychology, motivation and communication.
Canine behavior problems can become family problems and I love to help restore family tranquility.
The methods we use are positive and are based on the canine point of view and canine communication which we call ‘Speaking Dog’. As such they are completely natural for your dog. They do not rely on strength, force, pain or discomfort. For example, we would never use prong collars or shock collars to shape a dog’s behavior. In fact, I challenge my clients to be extremely gentle in the handling of their precious canine companions.
The training is relationship based and strives for a relationship incorporating love, trust and respect. By providing the leadership your dog craves you will provide a sense of safety and security which is truly a gift!
We train in the home where the dog is most comfortable and distractions can be managed. It is personal, private and customized. We set the scene for success.
When you engage me as your Bark Buster trainer you will be assisted in achieving specific training and behavioral modification goals. You will be given tools, techniques and exercises but you will also be given a knowledge base and framework for the understanding of canines that can serve you for years to come. It’s fun and interesting. You will be surprised by some of the things that you will learn!
