My name is Sarah and I am your local therapist for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Kelowna and Okanagan Valley. I’ve had a strong love of animals ever since I was a child. Throughout my life I have had many different dogs, and even a horse. Presently, my husband and I live in Kelowna where we have begun our own fur family, or a “Zoo” as my husband calls it. We share our space with two cats, Nero and Cato, as well as our two dogs, Roman and Riley, and even our bearded dragon, Bowser. Most recently we have new tenants who have brought their two Aussie Shepherds, Coco and Rosie, all the way from New Brunswick- there is definitely no shortage of entertainment between all of us and our mixed fur family!
Roman is a Cane Corso and Riley is an adopted lab/shepherd/terrier mix. I compete with both of our boys in Canadian Kennel Club Rally Obedience and am very proud of how well they have done. Both Roman and Riley have titles and have had high placings in their trials. I treasure the bond I have with my dogs and am so lucky to be able to spend as much time as I can with them.
Having a dog is such a rewarding experience and I fully understand how poor manners can cause great stress within family dynamics and daily routines. My training will help you and your family get a handle on those behaviours that cause a nuisance, endangerment, and even embarrassment. The methods we use at Bark Busters are very dog friendly and tailored directly to your needs- whatever they may be. I will give each family my all in my training, with the request in return that you follow through on your homework and together we will create a much more enjoyable, happy, and well-mannered companion.
I am so excited to be following my passion in working with people and their furry companions! I love hearing the success stories from all the owners and seeing the happiness beam from both the owners and their loyal dogs. I have worked with some clients who thought there was no hope, while others were only wanting minor tweaks; however, the methods in which Bark Busters uses to work on dogs of any age or stage of their life allows for success with both the dog and their owner. With our lifetime guarantee I encourage all my clients to contact me if there are ever any set backs along the way- I am here to help, no matter the problem we will tackle it together!
Thank you to Bark Busters for empowering me to help my clients, thank you to my clients who trust me to step into their lives and bring balance to their “pack”, and thank you to my husband for supporting me and pushing me to pursue my passion, and thank YOU for taking the time to read this! I love what I do, and if you are considering dog training, please consider me as I would LOVE to help.
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
"As a first time puppy owner Sarah has supported me from the beginning with my very high energy pup. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. I had numerous concerns and she was accessible when I reached out. I highly recommend Sarah to anybody interested in training or obedience for their puppy or dog."
