Dog training in West Toronto and Etobicoke

Jack Donovan

Behaviour Therapist & Trainer

My journey with Bark Busters began as a client. My two dogs were terrified of our baby and started reacting in a negative way. In one lesson, I saw how well the training worked. I had a demanding career and not a lot of time with my family. Becoming a Bark Buster trainer has led me to help numerous families and also my own. I take great pride in stepping into a home and helping get the pack back on track.

What I love about my job

There is no better feeling than when someone sends a kind message expressing how we have changed their relationship with their dog. Every Bark Buster trainer has a passion for animals, and we all give it our all to ensure that you get the leadership back in your home. When I hear that the program is going well or a little story about something great that happened, that’s what makes it all worth it.

Why I became a trainer

The first day after getting Bark Buster into my home, I knew it was something special. Seeing how much relief and joy our family felt after the first session was very emotional for me, as this was our last-ditch effort with the dogs. Once we understood why they were behaving the way they were, not only did my opinion change but it was something I knew I had to be a part of.

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...
