Bark Busters Home Dog Training Central Houston TX
Donna is absolutely brilliant with dogs! We have 2 young Boxers who are lovable and friendly creatures, but they really need to learn better manners. Our concerns were mainly to stop them from jumping on people and to teach them not to go near the door when someone rings the doorbell. On our very first lesson, Donna showed us some techniques that worked right away! We are now working on better manners while walking on a leash, particularly not to pull or jump around in excitement. In just one lesson we learned some simple yet very effective ways to accomplish our goals. We have learned the key is establishing yourself as leader, using proper body language, eye contact and tone of voice as well as staying consistent are the keys to successfully communicating with our dogs. We also love the fact that, there is no harsh punishment or negative techniques used at all. Donna is so patient, friendly and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a better relationship with their fur babies. Bravo, Donna!Mary W.April 22 2017
Best Dog Training Houston TX
At Bark Busters Houston, dogs have always been a very important part of our family life. And for many years we tolerated our dogs' bad behavior simply because we didn't understand how to communicate to them what we considered to be appropriate and inappropriate dog behaviors. Through the years, we tried every dog obedience training course that a dog and his owners could fail -- all of which were based on communicating with a canine brain in a human way. This continually set both the dogs and us up for failure because we were "speaking" different languages.
Through a real stroke of luck, we came in contact with the Bark Busters web site, and we began studying their dog training principles. We then began to understand what we had been doing wrong with our dogs and what could be done to help all dog owners make their dogs into a viable part of the family group, that is, the "Pack."
Houston Bark Busters will teach you how to train your dog using his own language -- body language and voice tones -- but in a way that he interprets correctly. This instills in your dog the habit of looking to you for guidance and direction out of respect for your leadership. "Amazing" and "I never would have believed it" are the words we most frequently hear from our clients at the end of a dog training lesson. So get set to be amazed when you book a lesson with Houston Bark Busters.

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.
