"After 3 years of never having anyone over because I didn't trust my dog I called Bark Busters and Graham came. After 2 hours I had a NEW DOG!! He taught me how to speak dog, and even went into my 'puppy's nutrition which has made the world of difference, it was the best thing I've done in years, THANK YOU!!!!!!!! I wish there was a sixth star to give!"

Milo - Yorkshire Terrier

Bark Busters helped with: Barking, Pulling, Recall, Separation anxiety

"Graham is so sweet! His approach is nice for both man and dog. Using his method, we quickly solve so many issues of our dog. Like separation anxiety, barking constantly, and ignoring our call...He is patient and responsible. He explained to us why we need to do this, why we need to do that...he taught us dog’s natural instincts and habits for us to make sense of what we’re doing and better ‘communicate’ with our four legged friend. To be honest, it’s definitely worth trying his lessons."

Grizzly - Golden Retriever

Bark Busters helped with: Separation anxiety, Other

"Just wanted to say a big thanks to Graham from Bark Busters for all the help he's given us with our little man Grizzly. Though an adorable and loving pup, Grizzly has been challenging in different ways: seperation anxiety, social anxiety and resource protection. We've been lucky to have a trainer who was so readily available, no matter the question, no matter the time, Graham always found time to talk us down and explain how we would move forward. Each issue was addressed with an approach specific to the problem we were facing and luckily, if we were consistent in applying the method, we saw results rather quickly. Today, we're doing better than ever with Grizzly. He's almost 2 and we've worked through some pretty crippling behaviours. So happy to have Graham no more than a phone call away. Thanks for all the help and support!"

"Graham Smith is Montreal's dog whisperer! Graham possesses a deep understanding of pack mentality, and I can not thank him enough for everything that he has done for me and my wonderful pup. He helped me to understand how to properly engage with my dog, and I now have a very loving and loyal canine companion who I can not imagine living without. My dog no longer nips, barks, chews on furniture, jumps up on people, or pulls on her leash. Now she's always happy, loving, friendly, and playful. Graham's services were worth every penny! He was always quick to reply to emails and phone calls, he never hesitated to come over if I needed some help with training, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. As an experienced dog owner I was not expecting to need a dog trainer for my new puppy, but every dog is different and there's no shame in reaching out for help sometimes. Graham's services made a world of difference and I highly recommend him to anyone, regardless of whether you're an experienced or new dog owner. Graham - my sincerest thanks!"

"Graham, thanks for being so available and helpful with our new Yellow Lab pup. WE were lost. And you coming to our house and teaching us to "speak dog" and showing us the ropes was so helpful. I really appreciate you being able to answer us about questions regarding her health, her well being, her diet in addition to training is invaluable. The leach training was a breeze. She already responds very well. And we know we can contact you anytime to get more help when we need it. Thanks for the help and support. Highly recommended, Great job!"
