Personally, I am in the top three of all trainers in Canada, I have won many awards and have studied canine behaviour therapy and qualify as a Master Trainer, which has given me the opportunity to work with nearly 3,000 dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds, and more importantly, of all ages with any problem. As a dog trainer and behaviourist, I am experienced in all situations.
Let’s get started! We all want to have a fun and loving relationship to treasure with our puppy and/or adult canine friend. Do you need help with any of the following items?
My techniques are dog friendly.
There is no pain.
No Physical force.
No treats or clickers.
No shock collars, choke chains or pinch collars, nor do I carry a pocket full of treats.
I firmly believe that inspiring and supporting the owner is the best way to start off a new puppy or address your dog’s behaviour problems.
Who benefits? Everyone in the family! Your dog will benefit if all members can be actively involved in the customized session prepared by me. The techniques and methods that Bark Buster trainers have studied has been tried and tested and I cannot tell you the number of cases where the dog owner has commented on how much calmer their dog is after working with Bark Busters. Many dog owners are amazed at how much their dog can change in just one session.
Who will be happy? Everyone including your neighbours! Happy stress free dogs = happy stress free owners!
My love and respect for animals goes back to my formative years on the family Saskatchewan farm with all kinds of animals. My father was a breeder of German Shepherds and many of those dogs became police dogs. In my adult years, I have been fortunate to share my life with four Springer spaniels and now have my Standard Schnauzer, Ella. She is my loyal four legged companion.

I adopted a rescue pup a few days ago and wanted to get on top of his behavioural issues right away.
Rob was awesome!
He was very flexible on the times he could come and showed up ON TIME which I really appreciated. (Especially considering the surprise snow we had today)
We got to work right away training ME on how to basically talk to my dog in a way they understand. Such a simple concept, but the difference in the reaction to his approach was basically a miracle. He didn't just take the leash and train my dog, he showed me how to be a better dog owner.
Even my 13 year old Puggle was listening to me after the techniques he showed me, and she has been the queen in my household for many years.
He left me feeling confident and capable, and with homework! He also offers endless follow ups for any future problems.
Thank you for everything Rob!

We have a 10 month old Border Collie named Rigby who is very high strung and had a need to be in control of everything in our house from answering the door to doing the laundry! He would bark at every minute sound, or glimmer of light that flashed into his line of vision. Whenever someone would approach our door, he would bark incessantly, and then jump all over whoever would enter the house without hesitation! Sitting down to relax after a day of work would always become a challenge as I would constantly find myself bounding out of my chair in order to try to quiet Rigby down and keep him from jumping up on the couch to look out the window and BARK! Walking him has also been a challenge, as he seems to have this need to try to corral cars, trucks, bicycles, and almost anything else that moves by crouching, barking and then lunging towards his object of desire! We have now had Rob Scheel visit our house a couple of times. In the first session we learned about the training method that Rob employs with Bark Busters, and we also witnessed and learned to use these techniques with Rigby. The results were nothing short of miraculous. To this day we no longer have any issue at all with Rigby when it comes to halt his barking, jumping or having to have control over every situation, which he once felt he had to have total command of! He has learned, as well as we have, that he no longer needs to worry about every aspect or responsibility of governing our home unless we allow him to. I can now settle down to a much needed quieter evening without having to jump up at every one of his previous commands! Rigby is learning his parameters and so are we.Except now we both have a much better understanding of who is in charge. We have just started to incorporate Robs teachings into our daily walks with Rigby now and have already started to notice much needed results. All in all, we are more than pleased with the results that have ensued with Robs masterful touch, and have immediately come to realize the importance of proper training of Rigby for his own safety and well being, and the peace of mind it allows us to experience knowing that all of us are better off for it. We also realize that this is an ongoing lifestyle for all of us in the house, including Rigby. Anything worth doing well requires regular effort and practice. We are both thankful and grateful for Rob's knowledge and professionalism as a Behavior Therapist for Rigby and us. We highly recommend him and for us as a family it is also very comforting to know that he has all of our wellbeing at heart; and he is available to us throughout the rest of Rigby's time with us here on Earth! Thank you Rob for all of your advice and help. Keep up the Great work! Kevin , Rigby and the whole Clan!

We are very pleased with the immediate results we experienced with our dog's change in aggressiveness and his excessive barking especially when visitors came to the door or entered our home. The Bark Busters system has worked very well for us.
