What Makes Us Different?
Developed in Australia, our simple, natural and dog-friendly training techniques use the same communication methods—body language and voice control—that dogs follow in their instinctive pack mentality.
With training taking place in your home, you'll see amazing results with your dog in as little as two hours (not weeks or months offered by other methods). Plus, you'll see continued improvements in your dog's behavior with practice and time.
A Bark Busters Dog Behavioral Therapist will come to your home where your dog is more open to learning and where he exhibits most of his problem behaviors. We teach you how to train your dog through effective use of your voice tones and body language. Our technique puts you in control using non-physical, quick and easy methods that dogs and puppies need to feel comfortable and secure.
Your Bark Busters trainer will help you to better understand and manage your dog's behavior, yielding an enhanced relationship that is more relaxed and enjoyable for you, your family and your dog.
