A 2-1 win over Leeds on Saturday moved the Clarets up to second in the table, a position few expected them to be in when last season's leading scorer Charlie Austin was jettisoned to QPR - the only team sitting above Dyche's men - in the summer.
However, Burnley's tight-knit squad have defied the odds so far and Dyche believes the group's togetherness is a large reason for their early success.
"This season we are getting results as well as performances and I've been happy overall," he said.
"There's still challenges for us, we don't have finances to immediately strengthen; we have to look at loan markets to strengthen because we have got a very small squad.
"But I made it clear to the players that I'm not a big excuse maker, the players know that.
"I look at what we have got, not what we haven't. I think we've got some very good players and there's a real feel-good factor in the group."
