Are you ready to enrich your dog’s life? I am here to help.
Perhaps you got a puppy during the pandemic and the play biting, jumping up, or pulling on the leash is getting a bit too much. Or maybe your family dog has developed some disruptive behaviours like barking every time the doorbell rings and at every guest you have over. You may have made the decision to give a rescue dog a better life, but you need help dealing with issues relating to his or her past negative life experiences. Whatever the situation, I know what it’s like and I’m here to help!
If you are in need of dog training in Scarborough or Durham Region (including Pickering, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville), call me (1-866-418-4584) or use the form below to get in touch so we can talk about your dog and how I can help.
I have a passion for caring for both animals and people.
Growing up on a farm I’ve raised and cared for animals my entire life, that along with my passion for helping people (I previously was an ICU nurse) speaks to my empathetic nature and genuine concern for others wellbeing. My goal is to leave owners feeling empowered and to change their dog and family's life for the better! Time and time again, I have seen what a difference Bark Busters training makes, particularly with stressful issues like leash aggression or separation anxiety. It is so rewarding to see the stress and anxiety melt away for both the dogs and the humans. I love what I do!
Tell me about your challenges and your situation, and I will develop a customized dog training program that will work best.
Each dog, person, family, and environment are different, and I have found that tailoring the program to each case gives the dog the greatest chance of overcoming the training challenges. In fact, with the right plan and coaching, many behaviours that were previously causing stress and frustration can often be transformed in the first few hours!
The Bark Busters dog training system is based on a deep understanding of canine behaviour. We teach you the most effective way to communicate with your dog which will provide clarity while building a bond of trust and confidence. Our praise-based positive reinforcement system means there is no need for punishment or force. Helping your dog overcome behaviour challenges and understand better exactly what you want is really the kindest thing you can do for your dog.
Bark Busters is here for you, now and in the future….…. with our Written Lifetime Guarantee…
With Bark Buster’s Written Lifetime Guarantee you have the security of knowing that if issues creep back or new ones appear later in your dog’s life, I will be there to help you through it, free of charge! Even if you happen to move nationally or internationally, as long as there is a Bark Buster serving your new hometown, they will honour the guarantee and help you with any behaviour challenges.
I would love to hear more about your dog, the challenges you may be facing, or the training goals you would like to achieve. Please call or fill out the form below so we can talk about how working together will make a difference for you and your dog.
Hank - Siberian Husky
"I was not expecting to see such clear results so quickly. Hank is a completely different dog when we are speaking his language. Thank you for helping us recognize the cues and the body language, and teaching us how to take charge of the situation."

Potsy - Potcake
Bark Busters helped with: Aggression, Other
"Love the online/zoom format. Makes mySelf, my husband and my dog feel comfortable and no judgement. Knowing we are doing all the exercises and training, but have the trainer observing, instructing and giving cues in the background, is an awesome way to learn. Our dog can easily focus since it’s just us in the house/yard, not someone new (which is what we are working on- his fear of new people)"
