My name is Nancy and I am your local dog behaviour therapist for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Calgary.
Every dog, like every human, is unique. Some are shy, some are
nervous. Some are confident, some are timid. Some are couch potatoes,
some are exuberant.
No two are just the same, not even siblings. But the wonderful thing about these amazing animals is that they truly want to be our best friends. But sometimes we communicate with them in a way that they don’t understand. And if your pet doesn’t understand the rules, it is very difficult to follow them!
I design my training program around your dog’s unique personality and your wants and needs. Training takes place in and around your home, where most behavior issues occur. Together, we can solve any inappropriate, embarrassing or destructive behaviour, humanely and non-physically. All I ask of you is to commit to working with your dog for at least 15 minutes a day. The results will astound you! And the great thing is that Bark Busters methods work for any dog at any age. I have worked with puppies and with senior dogs. Everything from pure bred dogs to mixed breed rescues. All with equal success.
So, maybe you have a new puppy and you just want to start them off with good manners by teaching them to listen to you. It isn’t much fun to walk a dog that constantly pulls or stops and starts whenever they want to. Perhaps you have a dog who jumps up on people or who barks at every noise. Maybe your faithful friend thinks it is his job to protect you. Or is afraid of strangers? Or other dogs? Maybe he won’t leave the cat alone. Maybe you are just frustrated with trying to teach your dog basic obedience training. These are just of few examples of changes we can accomplish together.
Whatever your challenge, our dog-friendly techniques quickly teach you how to use body language, voice tones and refocusing techniques to communicate with your dog in a way very similar to the way that dogs communicate with each other.
I have been so fortunate to have received wonderful knowledge and training in dog behavior and psychology from my time with Bark Busters.
Let me help you to improve your relationship with your dog with training based on love, leadership and trust. My job is to create a better, happier life for both you and your dog. And I love my job!
Nancy is AMAZING. She is super kind and you can really see her love for dogs. She comes right in and customizes a plan that WILL work for your dog. She is incredibly creative and has so much experience working with dogs. I honestly don't think there is a dog out there she can't help. We went from resenting our dog before to absolutely loving her. Chewing, bolting out the door, tugging on her leash when walking, and barking are all a thing of the past. I now have to think really hard about the reasons we hired Nancy sometimes because she has helped us so much that our dog isn't even the same. She taught us how to speak properly to our dog. I honestly can't say more positive things about her. She is hands down the BEST! Cesar Millan doesn't have anything on her. As far as I am concerned Nancy Mahanger IS the dog whisperer.

Nancy is an awesome lady. She is very understanding and knowledgeable. She clearly has an affinity for this work. Would recommend her to anyone with dog troubles:)

We have 2 large dogs (Butler and Toby)and my dream is to walk them together without being pulled every which way. After just 2 meetings, Nancy has given us the tools and understanding to help our dogs in many ways, including walking. I am working with the dogs individually outside and can see major improvements already and feel confident I will one day be able to walk them together. Thank you so much, Nancy.
