Bark Busters Home Dog Training Seminole County
We are experienced dog trainers and have trained hundreds of dogs successfully in the Orlando area. Mike and Judy have owned dogs for their entire life. Mike began training dogs while he volunteered for a Golden Retriever Rescue in the early 1980's when he acquired a very fearful and aggressive 9 month old golden retriever, Chelsea. Chelsea set Mike on a path of training his own dogs and eventually applied his skills to prepare other foster dogs for their forever homes. Judy manages The Orlando branch of Gold Coast Greyhound Adoptions, a non-profit greyhound adoption group. Under Judy's leadership Gold Coast Greyhounds has fostered and placed over 2300 greyhounds since 2003. "We discovered Bark Busters at just the right time. We had been answering dog behavioral questions for new adopters right from the start." Experience, dedication and love for dogs made Bark Busters an obvious career choice.
Judy and Mike have masters' degrees in the education and business fields and have been teachers and corporate trainers for many years. Bark Busters provided a career change that involved their love for dogs and passion for teaching. "We have a strong belief that the family dog is an integral part of life. We want every human/dog pack-family to enjoy each other and thrive together. A good human/canine relationship depends on getting the leadership in the proper order. Once the humans and the dogs understand how this works and can communicate with each other, the rest is easy. The pack is secure and safe and a relationship of trust and respect develops with very little effort."
Bark Busters dog training methods are based on how dogs naturally learn; because of this, quick results in your dog's behavior are possible. We don't use harsh dog training techniques, like shock collars, prong collars, physical domination or bribe with food to extort good dog behavior (which requires lots of time and repetition learning). Natural dynamics of pack law (dogs naturally learn by association) are employed to build a relationship of trust and safety with your dog. Our dog behavior training helps move you toward the ultimate goal of voice control and dog obedience based on respect for you, the dog owner.
The mission and origins of Bark Busters were developed to prevent the euthanasia and surrender of dogs to animal shelters because of behavior problems. As volunteers in a Greyhound adoption program we have seen many dogs returned because the owners did not understand the training needs of their pet. By joining the Bark Busters pack, we can provide proven pet training methods and restore happiness to their homes. And these results apply to mature dog training, puppy training, rescue dog training, greyhound training, or virtually any breed, any issue.
Bark Busters Home Dog Training is an education, not just dog training. Call me now to find out about the Bark Busters' difference!
