Bark Busters Home Dog Training Philadelphia, Ardmore, Havertown, Media, Wayne PA
We have 2 dogs, both almost 6 years old. They've spent the majority of their lives slowly taking over the household. Now that we also have a toddler, we decided it was time to take back control where we could. Donald has been great in helping us in that journey. In our first session, he listened to the problems we face with our pups (which include jumping on the baby's highchair during meals, pulling on the leash during walks and whining incessantly until they get their way) and offered guidance, providing hands-on help and making sure we understood the techniques and implemented them properly. In addition to helping us address the problems we knew existed, Donald also taught us behaviors to look out for that indicate our dogs are actually "training" us, which has been incredibly helpful in recognizing and addressing issues we weren't aware existed. The training requires consistency, work and patience, but we have made so much progress since Donald's first visit and have much less stress when it comes to the dogs, now that we have techniques that actually work to correct their negative behavior. He checks in frequently and is genuinely interested in our success. We enjoy working with him!Liz L.October 3 2016

Why is Bark Busters your best choice in effective dog behavior training?
Customized Training in Your Home: A dog's home environment is the center of his/her life and in many cases the source of any behavior problems the dog may have. It only makes sense that your dog's home and surrounding neighborhood is the most effective training location. I will work with you to develop a custom-tailored training program that suits you and your dog's personality, your lifestyle, your schedule and your goals.
Fast Results, Guaranteed for Life: With an initial 2.5-hour average visit, most customers experience an immediate positive behavioral change in their dog. Practicing only 10-15 minutes a day (over a 5-week period) will produce the canine companion that you always wanted. Real value for your hard-earned money!
A Great Start for Puppies: By training your puppy in the convenience and security of your home, I can get your puppy started at an earlier age. Using gentle training methods, I can guide your puppy in the right direction, avoiding many of the problems he would otherwise develop.
A bit about me: As a dog owner for many years, my pets have always been special family members who bring joy and happiness to my home and those around me. On a personal note, I have a Masters Degree in Education and previously was a principal and teacher in several school districts. I consistently use my educational background to teach my clients how to educate their dogs through the simple ways dogs communicate with each other. Why the change to becoming a dog trainer? For some time, I had contemplated opening my own business. I did extensive research and investigated several service-oriented businesses. I discovered that the most personally satisfying route would be to help people with their dogs. I was very impressed with Bark Bustersâ€™ commitment to providing quality and humane, pet-friendly dog training techniques, unparalleled customer service and a guaranteed lifetime support option.

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.
