CUSTOMIZED TRAINING IN YOUR HOME
We work with you to develop a custom-tailored training program that suits you and your dog's relationship, your lifestyle, your schedule and your goals! We teach you how to correct misbehavior as it is happening. You get one-on-one attention geared toward the real life issues that concern you the most. With an initial 2.5-hour average visit, you will begin to see big changes in your dog's behavior. With conveniently scheduled revisits and short periods of daily practice, you will soon have the well-behaved and happy dog that you have always wanted.
DOG-FRIENDLY, NON-PHYSICAL TECHNIQUES
Bark Busters proven system teaches you to think and speak canine. We use positive, non-physical (no choke, pinch, prong or shock collars), natural techniques, based on body language and vocal communication to get your dog to focus on you and respect you. The methods are simple and work for all breeds and all kinds of behavioral issues. Connie will assist you in finding solutions to potentially embarrassing and dangerous problems such as jumping on people, nuisance barking, aggressive behaviors toward other dogs or people, pulling on the leash, separation anxiety, and destructive behaviors such as chewing and digging.
ANY DOG, ANY AGE, ANY ISSUE
We work with all breeds, all ages, and all types of problem issues. Connie can get your brand new puppy off to the right start or work with your grown dog to solve any behavioral problem. Young puppies are eager and ready to learn and, yes, old dogs can learn new tricks. As a Bark Busters licensed behavioral therapist and trainer, Connie will work hard to make your dog a better canine citizen.
NEW PUPPY?NEED HELP WITH POTTY TRAINING?
You can get your puppy started off on the "right paw" by eliminating behavioral issues before they even start. A puppy's brain is like a big sponge, and by coming to your home, the Bark Busters trainer can begin working with your puppy at a very early age, without the fear of exposing him to unknowns prior to completion of his vaccinations.
We work hard with our local veterinarians because we believe that you will realize the greatest benefits through a cooperative program that looks after both your pet's medical and behavioral issues. Connie is recommended by many of her area veterinary offices.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your dog to show you how Bark Busters can give you a loving and peaceful relationship with your dog and give you the dog you have always dreamed of having.

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.
