Bruce and Robin Edwards Profile
After being in the dog-eat-dog environment of corporate life for more years than we would like to admit, Bruce and I decided to jump the fence and look for a new pack. Our luckiest day was when we were introduced to Bark Busters.
Bruce had been a top technology executive for major corporations and I was completely engulfed in the sales life of selling travel incentives to Fortune 500 companies. One day we just woke up with the epiphany that we wanted to have careers that made us feel good about ourselves and helped others… and that’s how Weston Bark Busters was formed.
After our exhaustive search of companies, talks with friends, and suggestions from colleagues, we decided that we wanted to become Bark Busters’ dog trainers and focus our time and energy on dog training. And not just any dog training techniques – dog training that is pet friendly, positive and proven to work!
The Bark Busters motto of saving dogs fit right into our own beliefs. We have three dogs and they have all come from a “rescue event.” In July of 2003, Hurricane Charlie came roaring through the Florida Keys and many of the animals in the area were sent to the Broward County Humane Society. We adopted Millie, a headstrong alpha-male German Shepard with major dog obedience issues. After trying several other dog training methods, we found Bark Busters. As dog owners, we were amazed at the results and our pack was never the same after that wonderful event.
The following year, Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans. Little did we know that our next dog was on his way from the devastation of Louisiana to our local Humane Society. We brought Nicki, our English springer spaniel, into our pack. With all that he had been through, he had his own set of dog behavior issues. Guess what? The dog training methods we learned with Bark Busters worked again!
This brings us to our third dog, a little five-pound we-aren’t-sure-what-he-is. His name is Buster, and he originally came from a puppy mill in the Midwest. He had many puppy training issues and his owner was about to send him to the county pound after having him for only three weeks. (The county pound euthanized dogs.) Needless to say, we took him in as another loved member of our pack. Buster was afraid of humans, would not go outside, and only stayed in his crate. Again our Bark Busters puppy training system came through for us. Buster is now a loveable little dog, basically running the roost of our three dogs.
So if you have dog aggression problems need basic dog training or advanced dog training, or rescue dog training, call us today. Training a dog, whether it’s small dog training or mature dog training is our specialty.
