Doug was fantastic! A dog whisperer! The first session fixed almost every issue I have been working on with my dog for over a year. Doug was very patient, kind, and reliable/organized. I have already told friends about the great results of Bark Busters and will continue to do so. By training people how to train their dogs, you are saving many lives.

Best Dog Training Louisville KY
Welcome! My name is Doug Rountree and I am your master dog trainer for the Louisville Kentucky area.
Breed, Any Age, Any Issue!
Having worked with more than 2,500 dogs over the past ten years, there’s very little that I haven’t already seen when it comes to resolving canine behavioral issues. In fact, not only do I help family members understand what their dog may be thinking and how they communicate, but most importantly, I show them how to change their dog’s behavior by improving/redefining the relationship they have with each other. As a result, both the owner and their canine companion are much happier and relaxed since the pack roles are fully understood and accepted.
Your Louisville Dog Trainer
During my tenure with Bark Busters, I have served on the Franchise Advisory Council, and have continued to refine my training skills by attending regular training programs and national conferences. In 2014, I was honored by receiving the national Top Business Operator award and was one of five finalists for Dog Trainer of the Year. I also received the 2016 Customer Service of the Year award at our national conference.
Yet it isn’t about winning awards that drive my passion to be the best Louisville dog trainer I can be. My ultimate satisfaction is seeing clients both pleased and relieved in knowing that they now have a way of getting their dog’s behavior under proper control when implementing our unique training methods. Having such a positive impact on people’s lives nearly every day is what continues to drive my passion to help as many people as possible Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you are feeling stressed and/or overwhelmed with your canine companion. Our methods have been proven, quite literally, throughout the world, and I know I can help you achieve the best relationship possible with your canine as well!
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.
