Because of the COVID-19 crisis, we have implemented an individualized video conference dog training program. With this program I will be able to help you and your dog make progress on the most frustrating training or behaviour problems. It is also great for getting a puppy's training headed in the right direction in a timely manner. Contact me if you'd like to learn more about how this works.

As a point of information, I am Covid-19 vaccinated and boosted having received my booster on Jan 2, 2022.

Hello dog lovers! My name is Jack Donovan and I am your dog trainer on the west side of Toronto and Etobicoke. My story with Bark Busters began with needing help with our 2 dogs. The first few years of marriage was just us and our dogs, but then we added our son into the picture. Out of embarrassment like most dog owners, we began making excuses for why they were barking and growling and not really understanding what was going on. After numerous Youtube videos and tv shows, nothing seemed to click. That’s when we reached out to Bark Busters, and after one visit we had seen a change in both our dogs and ourselves. From day one I know I wanted to be part of this team and vision.

Let me help you and your dogs and show you some of the methods that are effective and easy to use! It is a patented approach which has been successful for 30+ years! We have the skills to diagnose any dog, any age and any issue! Call today and get more information to help get the behaviour back on track!

"Andrew is either a magician or a miracle worker!!! My 8-year-old female husky cross (Molly) developed dog aggression a few years ago and dealing with it sucked!!!! She's awesome with people but for some reason, she felt that she needed to lunge/attack at any other animal passing by. So you can imagine how much fun dogs walks were, as I'd always be on guard and scanning the area to make sure that there were no other dogs around, she even wore a mussel just in case, and I also had to schedule her walks to minimise contact with other dogs, ie walking her super early or late. Andrew came to my house, we chatted for about an hour, he met Molly and I explained to him the problem I have with her, her history, what I tried, and so on. He asked me several questions and though I was a little sceptical at first (as I've been dealing with her aggression for years now with no big improvements), I was confident of Andrew's knowledge and experience to work with me to address her issues. He came by a week later, this time with his dog, and Andrew showed me how to deal with Molly's aggression. After 20 min, Molly didn't care that there was another dog 10 feet away. We walked around the neighbourhood together with our dogs without any problems, no pulling/lunging/nothing except a calm dog. Andrew gave me the tools and taught me the steps on how to correct Molly, what signs to look for, and the confidence to walk my dog. I'm not sure if Andrew is a magician or a miracle worker because those two appointments changed everything! Walking my dog now is a pleasure, she doesn't pull/lunge at dogs, she doesn't need to wear a mussel anymore, and most importantly, I trust my dog again. I only regret that I didn't find Andrew three years earlier. I 1000% recommend Andrew! Tom"
