Dog training in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and surrounding areas

Tim Girouard

Behaviour Therapist & Grand Master Trainer

I have been a Bark Buster trainer for 15 years and have had the pleasure of working with almost 4000 dogs and their owners. Over the past three decades, my wife and I have had eleven dogs, almost all rescues, and each one has enriched our lives in a unique way. In my previous life, I sold Building Supplies and helped people achieve their goals of transforming their homes. Now I get immense satisfaction working with my clients to help them transform their relationship with their dog.

Also Serving: Fergus, Elora, Elmira, St Jacobs, St Clements, New Hamburg, Baden, Stratford, Ayr

What I love about my job

Pets enrich our lives by loving us unconditionally. They give us another reason to get up in the morning and are good for our health. Improving their well-being is the least they deserve. Nothing brings me more joy than to see a troubled owner/dog relationship resolved and both parties happy and excited about living the rest of their lives together. Helping to ‘train owners’ how to teach their dogs ensures that issues stay resolved. They also have comfort knowing that if they need additional support, I’m here for them!

Why I became a dog trainer

I was tired of working for a big corporation and knew I could make a difference when I combined my absolute love of dogs with the joy of seeing people succeed. I know the love that dogs can give when they are a vital part of the family and know their place. A well-behaved dog is like having a well-behaved child. They can bring so much happiness.

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…

Three Best Rated in Kitchener

Our dog is like a different dog – doesn’t pull while walking and no more senseless barking. Thank you so much, Tim! Such an amazing experience after only one visit. We are all blown away.
