Dog Training & Behavioral Therapist for South Seattle, Washington
Best Dog Training in South Seattle!
Are you the proud pet parent of a new puppy and want ongoing support to ensure your puppy grows into a happy, well behaved adult dog? Or do you have an adult dog that has behavioral problems that leave you frustrated, annoyed and maybe even desperate to find a real solution?
I provide personalized in-home training in the South Seattle area, including Burien, Normandy Park, Federal Way, Kent, Auburn, Des Moines, Renton Puyallup, Tacoma and many other communities.
One of the major benefits of Bark Buster's in-home training is that we customize our training methods to suit your dog's personality, your family's lifestyle and your "house rules". You may have multiple dogs that each need customized training for their individual personality and history.
Since many of the obedience and behavioral issues occur in your home, it makes sense to start your dog's training at home. As your training progresses, we can also work with your dog in public locations where problems occur. I may bring my own dog(s) on lessons to create distractions, work on advanced skills and practice socialization skills.
You'll learn how to communicate effectively with your dog(s) using body language, voice tones and POSITIVE reinforcement.In-home dog training allows us to focus on improving your relationship with your dog. Our dog training strengthens and builds upon the 3 components of a good human-canine relationship; the bond, trust, and respect.
Some of the common behavioral issues Bark Busters South Seattle routinely helps with include:
- Nuisance barking
- Aggression behavior
- Jumping up
- Pulling on the leash and walking to heel
- Basic obedience (sit, stay, down, come)
- Digging in the yard
- Toileting in the house
- Separation anxiety
- Puppy training
- Over excitement
- Manners with children, cats and other family pets
- And MORE!
Please feel free to call Bark Busters South Seattle for a no-obligation dog training consultation! And ask about our Lifetime Guarantee.
Please take the quick behavior rating quiz on our web site! I'll receive a copy and when you call I can review the results with you during your free consultation.
how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
