Dog training in Calgary

Horacio D'Argence

Behaviour Therapist & Trainer

I grew up in southern Mexico on our family's working ranch, surrounded by horses, cattle, and lots of dogs! There is something about having a life connected to the land that gives you a more open understanding of animals. My first career took me away from that and for many years I worked in Mexico City as the Human Resources manager for a financial institution. Eventually, my love for dogs and desire to help families drew me to dog training in Calgary with Bark Busters Dog and to this incredible direction in my professional life.

What I love about my job

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is to be able to help humans communicate with their dogs. It’s a mind-blowing experience when I see them reconnect and start to understand each other. It can really bring a family together too as they have a common goal: to create a happy life with a happy dog!

Why I became a trainer

When I was a child, I was attacked by my family’s dog. I ended up in the ICU at the hospital, and I remember how my family felt scared and guilty about what happened. With time I learned that that accident could have been avoided by just being proactive and learning how to read the dog's everyday behaviour. It’s so important to be able to see the world from a dog’s perspective, be in tune with their ways of communication and find a better path to solve any problem.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Puppy training
  • Separation anxiety in dogs
  • Stopping excessive barking
  • Dog aggression and aggression toward humans
  • Leash training, including leash pulling
  • Stopping dogs from jumping on people
  • Food aggression in dogs and resource guarding
  • Reactive dog training
  • General obedience training
  • And more...

"We learned so much from Horacio, and we are working hard to put his training into action. We saw an immediate improvement and were incredulous at the simplicity of a few behaviours that WE needed to change. We are very grateful for Horacio and Bark Busters!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!" Laurie W.
