Bubba has been responding fantastically to training. He is a much more relaxed pup and there has been far less drama in the home. The changes and training have improved his behavior in the yard and the neighbors appreciate it. People have noticed a vast change in his manners as well. We continue daily training (us AND him!). We will continue with updates. Thank you so much!Damon B.June 15 2017
Best Dog Training in Virginia! Bark Busters is also the largest behavioral dog training company in the world, having trained over 1.5 million dogs in eight countries!
I have personally trained 5,000 dogs and puppies with Bark Busters for the past 15 years, using an all natural style based on pack structure and leadership. I pride myself on being patient, caring and perceptive of my client's needs, and I apply these attributes to their owners as well!
My varied background allows me to understand pressures that corporate, self-employed and retired owners experience. I have been able to apply this rounded knowledge in problem-solving many difficult cases. I consider dog training to be a family affair, as each dog's behavior is affected by their relationships. I individualize the training approach for each dog's set of problems. All work is done in your home or where the issues are occurring. This is the only way your dog will learn to stop stealing off your kitchen counter, toileting in the dining room, pulling the children's clothing, digging up your flowers, chasing the cat, etc.! We are best known for our work with aggression, and all other difficult behavior problems.
There are no limits to the hours spent with you; I am committed to solving the problems, not just offering a limited set of lessons. And when satisfied, I continue to be available with guidance. All problems are covered under a written service guarantee. We aren't happy unless you remain happy!
And we have a fantastic puppy starter program as well, with follow through to adulthood. All puppy issues covered.
My credentials include:
- Bark Busters Master Certified Trainer
- AKC Canine Good Citizen Certified Evaluator
- Member International Association of Canine Professionals
- SPCA International Operation Baghdad Pups Trainer
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.
