        When Choosing a Trainer...

1) Ask what results you can expect so you don't waste time & money. Why pay for time if what you want are results?  Bark Busters offers unlimited dog training lessons because you should get ALL the help you need at an affordable upfront cost. Bark Busters trainers give unlimited help for any dog behavior. Included with in-home lessons is phone & e-mail support for quick answers when you need them.  Your local Bark Busters certified dog trainer / behaviorist is there for you!

2) What do you teach? Our training advice & drills are all tailored to your dog and your specific objectives, not the objectives of a class instructor or others in a group setting. We help with any dog behavior. We include careful, controlled off-site socialization w/ 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 had become aggressive with dogs or people (even if it's due to fear.)

3) How long does it take?
  No one can tell you with certainty, but our clients are consistently amazed at how quickly their dogs learn ...and we don't bribe with treats! If you are thinking it will take months, think weeks or days! And there's no financial gamble with Bark Busters, because you get unlimited help. Dog training always happens faster when you start at home where dogs are most comfortable. Training at home is a must because dogs need to learn the rules of the house, how to greet people, and what interactions are allowed with family & visitors, what not to chew, where to potty, focus at the onset of a walk, boundaries, etc.  This all is accomplished much faster when you teach it where it happens. Once dogs listen and behave at home, we include personal coaching off site and around other dogs. 

4) Ask about the training methodology.
  Positive Only? Your dog needs lots of guidance and praise for good behavior. However, praising the good behaviors doesn't always teach dogs what NOT to do.  Many dog trainers rely on treats alone and don't ever communicate which behaviors are to be discouraged. Never hit or physically threaten your dog! Don't rub his nose in a mess! Instead, learn to communicate simple disapproval w/ out 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 & quickly discourage unwanted behaviors using body language, sound & 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 / she has chosen the right path while improving the dog / owner bond!

Too Harsh? Some training companies employ harsh or confusing methods which may result in the reduction of certain behaviors but most of those methods stress dogs and diminish your bond and your dog's trust. This can lead to other unwanted behaviors such as nervousness & not coming when called, even aggression.  Domination is not the answer! Trusted leadership is. There is no need for your dog to fear you. Dogs naturally focus on owners who know how to show true canine leadership. Let Bark Busters teach you canine leadership & communication so your puppy or dog will behave & still trust you. Collars (like shock collars, bark collars) don't resolve the root cause of the issues and often result in more problems even when they seem to "work" in the moment.

5) Consider whether the training methods address the root cause of the issues
or whether it just distracts or covers up the underlying cause of the behavior. Dogs do what they think is best or needed in the moment. Learn from us how to teach your dog that what his trusted leader knows best. 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. You'll also get the knowledge needed for future success w/ countless behaviors from simple obedience to housebreaking,  socialization,  walking, stopping annoying chewing or stealing, to resolving the most complex dog behaviors like avoiding separation anxiety, aggression, fighting w/ other pets & more
