My name is Andrew Gawur and I’m your local therapist for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Toronto West and Etobicoke. I’ve been making dogs and people’s lives better through Bark Busters now for over 12 years! I’ve visited over 1000 families and am an expert in helping alleviate your dog’s separation anxiety, aggression, jumping up, rushing to the door, nipping/chewing pulling on the lead and, of course, barking!
I began with Bark Busters as a client, many years ago. We called in the local trainer for our two little terrors (terriers). I was truly amazed at how fast the transformation was! Using our proprietary methods, I was able to stop one from barking in the middle of the night and other from pulling on the leash. I was relieved and proud of them at the same time
I work with puppies as early as 8 weeks old and help lay the foundation for a good relationship for you and the new addition to your family. I also teach obedience, house-training and work with socializing the younger dogs with other dogs in and outdoors.
I have also been an advocate for dog’s rights many times. I have assisted clients with difficult situations that have arisen with their condo management/landlords and have testified before the Landlord /Tenant Board.
Our methods are non-physical and non-food based, effective and easy to use. Don’t waste your money on useless clicker or ineffective treat training. Group classes are fun but what happens when your dog misbehaves at home? Or on a walk? Or at the park? I will help you open a line of communication with your dog that will last their lifetime and make your relationship so much more rewarding and fulfilling.
I look forward to working with you and your dog!
I could not believe how fast my dogs responded to the training. I enjoy walks with both my dogs now. He has not chewed anything since the training and both dogs have been responding right away to verbal commands. I never thought I would be able to take my Mastiff on walks and enjoy the experience. I even had the ultimate test, there was an off leash dog with no owner around and all the mastiff did was stare. He did not lunge for the dog or anything, he was just curious. The other dog came a little close and I did the BAAH to him and he backed up and walked away. Who knew it was so simple! Thanks again,

I owe you a huge thank you! I am seeing big improvements in Piper's behaviour, and she is even starting to relax when she is out in public. I am really proud of her and it is taking a really big stress off my shoulders. Many thanks once again.

Hi Andrew. It was great working with you. Buddy has been wonderful. He has hardly barked at all, even when he is outside alone. We all have noticed a big change. He is a new dog! He has even been walking on the leash calmly and only needs to be reminded a few times per walk not to pull. My daughter actually enjoys walking him now. He is not biting or nipping at the kids. I can finally have company over without worrying hat his boisterous welcome might hurt someone. Thanks for giving us a dog we can enjoy being with. I have already recommended you to my nephew. Hopefully, you will hear from them soon. Take care and thanks again.
