What to Ask When Choosing a Trainer
What Results Can You Expect So You Don’t Waste Time and Money?
Most other methods yield slow results. Bark Busters offers unlimited dog training lessons because you should get all the help you need at an affordable, upfront cost. Our trainers give unlimited help for any dog behavior because we know how to address the root of the issues in the first session.
We include same-day Q&A follow-up support for quick answers when you need them. Your local Bark Busters certified dog trainer/behaviorist will be there for you.
What Do You Teach?
We include careful, controlled off-site socialization with other dogs when needed. This is important so your puppy doesn’t become fearful by socializing in the wrong (overwhelming) way or if your dog was not properly socialized as a puppy. We can help if your dog has become aggressive with dogs or people for any reason.
How Long Does It Take?
Dog training always happens faster when you “speak dog” and address the root of issues. As soon as you learn to speak dog, your dog will be more focused and compliant, not to mention relieved that you’ve learned to reduce their stress.
There’s no financial gamble with Bark Busters because you get unlimited help. We’ll provide dog training lessons as long as your dog needs them.

What Is the Training Methodology?
Never hit or physically threaten your dog. Don’t rub his nose in a mess or grab your dog out of frustration. Instead, learn to communicate simple disapproval without becoming physical or threatening. Dogs naturally respect clear signs of their pack leader’s disapproval.
You don’t have to yell at your dog. Bark Busters teaches how to effectively and quickly discourage unwanted behaviors using body language, sound, and timing, which all dogs already understand. Communicate; don’t punish.
We also teach canine leadership, which dogs crave. Our drills always leave your dog feeling confident and happy that he has chosen the right path while improving the dog/owner bond.
This can lead to other unwanted behaviors, such as long-lasting nervousness, mistrust of strangers and other dogs, not coming when called, and aggression. Domination is not the answer. Trusted leadership is. Dogs naturally focus on owners who know how to show true canine leadership, so there is no need for your dog to fear you.
Let Bark Busters teach you canine leadership and communication so your puppy or dog will behave and still trust you. Don’t use collars, such as shock collars and bark collars, because they don’t resolve the root cause of the issues and often result in more problems, even when they seem to work at the moment.
What Is the Root Cause of the Behavior Problems?
Bark Busters trainers are certified behavioral therapists who can identify the root causes of dog obedience or behavior issues. Repetitive conditioning alone only covers up problems and won’t hold up when you need it most. We’ll teach you to communicate using clear canine body language dogs already naturally understand.
