I am a behavioural therapist of Bark Busters in Madrid. Since my childhood I have felt a huge empathy with animals. I started to take note of the training done with the dolphins and killer whales in different zoos and theme parks. I paid much attention to the way animal and trainer came to communicate and understand each other through the “target”, with food, whistles, etc … In Spain it wasn’t commonplace to educate dogs and I started to search for information, if there was any, on dog training similar to that already used with the marine mammals.
I did my first studies on dog training when 20 years old and that was when I got to know the history of the dog, its origins, canine theory, canine breeds and behaviour therapy methods. All this, whilst I was working professionally in the restaurant world.
Since then I became even more interested in this world and I enrolled in 2 courses, one of therapy and one of obedience, but some of the methods used did not seem the most natural way to communicate with a dog and I often found them sometimes forced on the animal.
That’s why I decided to look into the world of dog training and behaviour therapy and to complete the gap in human – dog communication. So I found Bark Busters, a company with a huge prestige worldwide, which uses effective, simple and natural training and communication methods with which in turn helps to make your dog a happy member in your family.
The Bark Busters method does NOT include the use of sticks, rolled up newspapers and the like. We do NOT use shock or spray collars, choke chains or pronged collars. We teach you to use your VOICE tones and BODY LANGUAGE to control your dog . . . both on and off lead, at your home, at the park . . . anywhere.
Our Bark Busters Gold Class home lessons are guaranteed for the life of your dog! That means we will come back to provide further dog training at no extra charge if problems recur, or new problems develop, at any point in the dog’s life.
We are committed to solving your dog’s behavioural problems. We charge a one-time fee that covers as many sessions as required to get the problems under control. The first session will take about 2-3 hours, and you will be required to practice for 10-15 minutes each day for 4-5 weeks. This will reinforce your dog’s newly learned behaviour. Our ‘Gold Class’ training comes with our Lifetime Written Guarantee.
