Bark Busters Home Dog Training Loudoun and Fairfax Counties
Mark was great. By the end of the first session we saw an incredible difference with our dog (8 year old shih tzu). She calmed down dramatically and her incessant barking was almost completely eliminated. The training methods were effective, simple, and easy to implement. We would highly recommend Mark and Bark Busters to anyone looking to see dramatic changes in their dog's behavior.Tim A.April 14 2016

The ONLY local trainer/behaviorist I would recommend is Bark Busters Home Dog Training. The Bark Busters program is a winner. My three retired racers and an Italian Greyhound have been through the program. They responded to the object of the training session in less than 30 minutes. Our goal was to stop the barking race to the front door where guests would be greeted by four enthusiastic, leaping, licking, barking hounds. It was chaos. While I enjoy that kind of loving greeting, many of my guests and relatives did not look forward to ringing my doorbell. I was a skeptic and didn't believe anyone could bring order to my crew of hounds, but Bark Busters worked a miracle in record time....without ever laying a hand on my hounds except to pet and enjoy them.

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.
