So I recently adopted a dog from a elderly lady who was going into a senior residence. I was looking for a small, older, non-shedder, but Tyler came along and captured my heart. But I changed his name because Tyler is not really a dog’s name, in my humble opinion, and he reminded me of my goldendoodle Finnegan. And poodles are very smart and do not shed.

So after a couple of days, I realize that the concept of proper behavior is lost on Finn. He spent most of the first few days humping, pawing, jumping and basically driving me crazy. I have had 6 dogs in my like – Kelly, Brandy, Kelsey, Nikki, Finnegan and Finnegan #2. But I was lost on what to do in terms of getting his wild behavior under control.

Until this guy came along. Graham Smith of Bark Busters. I knew Graham back in the day as he owned a successful advertising agency and I am in the radio business. We worked together on the famous Felix and Norton account. Graham told me that within 5 minutes of his arrival, Finnegan would be a new dog. I said to myself ” ya right “. But what Graham said was absolutely true. And I was in shock. His theory is based on the fact that dogs are descendants of wolves and as such, he studied the behavior patterns of wolves. Wolves are pack animals and have to ascertain who is the leader of the pack. Dogs will try and establish that leadership role unless you take control. We also discussed food, walks and other behaviors. Two hours and I learned more about dogs than I had known for 60 years.

If you have a dog, I promise that Graham and Bark Busters can make a world of difference. Call Graham at 866 418 4584 or

Enjoy the video and have a great day.
