Rob Scheel

Behaviour Therapist & Master Trainer

I began with Bark Busters in 2006 and have since worked with over 4,000 dogs and their families. After working in the forest industry, I have found true happiness in working with dogs and after 17 years of service, I am one of the most experienced Bark Busters trainers. I have been fortunate to share my life with four Springer Spaniels and my beloved Standard Schnauzer, Ella.

Also Serving: East Vancouver, Shaughnessy, Kitsilano, Surrey, Ladner, Tsawwassen, White Rock

What I love about my job

Over nearly two decades as a trainer, I have seen so many stressed families transform to enjoy wonderful and calm relationships with their dogs. Dogs are a real joy to have in our lives and sometimes they need a bit of extra help to get there. I am here to help create that space in a dog-friendly way, whether you have a young puppy or a mature dog.

Why I became a trainer

​​My love and respect for animals go back to my formative years on the family 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 found myself in the corporate world and not very happy. Then along came Bark Busters and for the first time, I could see the fruits of my efforts transform a dog right in front of me. It was so rewarding and I have been doing it ever since for my clients.

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...

Rob Scheel is one of the most experienced dog trainers serving Richmond, Vancouver, and New Westminster. In this video he talks about his favourite dog and the tremendous impact dogs have on our life. Rob has been an integral part of the Bark Busters dog training organisation for the past 17 years and has helped many thousands of dogs.

We have a 3-year-old Catahoula/American Bulldog mix who really liked to bark at guests at the front door and mooch for food. After the first lesson with Rob, we couldn't believe the transformation. He's better behaved and seems more relaxed already. My wife and I are thrilled. Highly recommend. Richard Jacquard
