As your Bark Busters Fairfield Dog Trainer, I think of myself as your “mentor”. I help you change the relationship your dog has with your whole family. Here is what you can expect from our dog training sessions:
Training is a team effort. Think of me as your coach, supplying you with the skills and advice you need to change your dog’s behavior. Like any team who does not win come game time, it is often a case of needing more practice or getting back to the basics. If you spend time each day dedicated to the solutions we used, you WILL see success with your dog training.
There is no such thing as a bad dog. Too often dogs are rehomed or abandoned through no fault of their own. Often it is a case where the pet parents could not overcome some bad behaviors. That will not be the case with Bark Busters! Dogs aren’t bad – there is just “bad communication” between humans and canines. Dogs aren’t trying to misbehave. They want to please you, but they don’t know how.
There is no “quick fix” even if our lesson produces dramatic results. During our lesson, we will discuss some rules and boundaries and show your dog you can be a leader. Dogs are lifelong learners and need continual reinforcement to make sure you remain the leader. How much time you spend practicing directly determines the success of your training.
Your dog will still be your dog. Many times, pet parents want to make sure their dog does not lose his playfulness or spunkiness because of our dog training. Their personalities won’t change. What will change is that their mis-behaviors and naughtiness can be overcome. Conversely, we can’t make an aloof dog love affection or a fearful dog to embrace dog parks.
Your dog sets the pace for education. Every dog is different and will “catch on” at a different pace. Your dog may be a slower or faster learner than others. He may be quicker to accept certain changes than others. With persistence, patience and respect, you can have a well-behaved dog.
Our methods produce awesome results. If you read some of my reviews, you will see that our dog training is unlike any other. Your dog will be calmer and more relaxed that you can imagine.
Your dog may have to change his diet. I have seen how certain types of food can adversely affect a dog’s behavior. A change in your dog’s nutrition can make a very big difference in behaviors.
You may have to wait, but I’m worth it. I am often booked up months in advance, but I promise you it will be worth the wait.

Seeing the difference I make in my client’s relationship with their dogs is really what fuels me. I hope this gives you a better understanding of who I am and what you can expect. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!
