“We know firsthand how a challenging dog can negatively impact a family. We also see the amazing positive impact a ‘good dog’ can have on a family. It’s a pretty awesome feeling to know that a few hours of time teaching a client to effectively communicate with their dog can transform a ‘problem dog’ into the perfect family member.
We have both always loved dogs and had great success training our first dog Bosco. Bosco wowed all of our friends with his responsiveness and we really thought we knew what we were doing. Enter Jules … . Jules is a mixed breed and is part pointer, part pogo stick, part jet engine and part caffeine. We were overmatched! Nothing that had worked with Bosco was working with Jules. We were at a loss! Fortunately, a few years ago, one of our closest friends became a Bark Busters trainer and he offered to help with Jules. We couldn’t have been more impressed (or more surprised at how fast and effective Bark Busters’ training methods were). With Derek’s help, we had Jules’ difficult behavior completely eliminated in a couple of hours. We were sold immediately on the idea of helping others transform their relationship with their dogs. We look forward to sharing the joy of ‘speaking dog’ the Bark Busters way with you and your family!”
I have always felt a deep connection with dogs. Their loyalty, intelligence, and loving nature have always fascinated me and I have spent countless hours playing with and taking care of them since childhood. My mom will tell you that I was the kid who largely ignored the people while keeping the dogs entertained at social gatherings whether they were mine or not.
After high school, I joined the Marine Corps as a Ground Radio Repair Technician. During my service, I learned the importance of many core values like discipline, integrity, respect, teamwork, duty, confidence, and willingness to learn. I also learned the value of strong, capable, and compassionate leadership. I have experienced the effect of weak leadership and the stress and chaos that it causes. I have also worked under some of the best leaders in the world. Each of them created safe, secure, and empowering environments that made us all better.
I definitely don’t need to put you and your dog(s) through bootcamp, but I do promise to provide valuable training that will enhance and bolster your relationship with your dogs. I will teach you how to be a strong, capable, and compassionate leader for your dogs and I’ll show you how to communicate with them effectively. Not only will your dogs understand the rules of the house and what is expected of them, they will be happy to follow your lead! Dogs should be a constant source of joy and never the cause of any frustration or stress.
Your dog’s job is to be loved, cuddled, and cared for while following the rules of your household and family. I’ve seen and experienced many times how a well-behaved dog can bring limitless love and happiness to their owners’ lives, and I want to be a part of that process with you, every step of the way.
