meet your specialist trainer David Wiley
Dog Training & Behavioral Therapist for Seattle Metro, Washington
After attending literally all of the other dog trainers in Seattle to no avail, we decided to give David Wiley & Bark Busters a try to help curb some unwanted behaviors in our mini Aussie, Pete. David was able to quickly identify the root cause of Pete's barking and pulling, and the exercises he recommended work - we saw Pete change his behavior while practicing in our very first meeting! For other dog parents like us, who are feeling like no training is working for your dog, call Bark Busters! Their approach focuses just as much on training the humans, as it does with the dog, which in our case is what was needed. We are more optimistic than ever by seeing positive changes every day that Pete will be the great dog that his Moms know he is. Thank you David, we really look forward to continuing to work with you!Laurel H.August 2 2017
Best Dog Training in Seattle!
If you're reading this, then you're probably frustrated with your dog's behavior and you're trying to determine the best way to do something about it.
You're thinking that you don't want to go to a dog obedience class because you don't believe a "one size fits all" approach is going to work for your pet. And, besides, who has the time or patience for a weekly dog training class with 15 other barking dogs? You don't want to send your dog away to one of those doggie "boot camps" because you're afraid her spirit might be broken, or fear that she'll return behaving more like a robot than a family pet. What about the dog obedience behaviors that only occur in and around your home? And you don't want to resort to dog shock collars or other coercive dog training measures -- Bark Busters Seattle focuses on POSITIVE dog training!
Did you know that your dog probably doesn't realize she's misbehaving, or understand how frustrated you are with her actions? Often, a poorly behaving dog is doing her very best to fulfill her responsibilities as she understands them.
The problem is that your dog doesn't understand your rules, and she makes bad decisions as a result. Therein lays the problem: you're not communicating in "dog speak".
So, how do you get your dog's behavior under control in a way that is not only convenient and effective, but will also result in a better relationship between you and your dog?
Bark Busters shows you how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands, so you can give him the education he's missing and provide the dog obedience techniques he's craving. As a professional dog trainer with experience training thousands of dogs, I will teach you how to deal with your dog's behavior in a humane, non-physical manner. Most importantly, I realize that you need a dog training technique that fits with your lifestyle and the kind of relationship that you want to have with your pet, not some expert's opinion of how your dog is supposed to act.
My goal is for you to have control of your dog(s) using voice and body language. Our dog behavior training philosophy is based on how dogs naturally learn and teach each other. We don't use harsh dog training techniques such as dog shock collars, which often do more harm than good. After you learn the Bark Busters dog training system, your dog will respond to you as his/her leader through respect, not just reacting to food or fear.
Dogs learn best when they can focus on the dog owner and dog trainer without distractions. In their home, dogs are less stressed, and therefore you can focus on the issues and they learn very quickly. It's important for you to know how to control your dog in "real life" situations. We accomplish this through our private and personalized sessions that help you and your dog overcome the specific challenges you are facing and achieve your training goals. Simply stated when you succeed we succeed.
Bark Busters was initially founded to help people whose dogs had behavioral problems and were in danger of being abandoned or euthanized. Such a mission is one of the reasons why I am here today. Whether you need mature dog training or puppy training, small dog training or large dog training, I am here to help. In just a few short dog training sessions, we can stop dog barking, stop dog jumping, stop dog separation anxiety or any other dog obedience issues you are experiencing. We use all natural and non-physical dog training methods to help you and your dog communicate more effectively. We customize the dog training to each individual dog and owner to address your personal situation and circumstances, and we make it an enjoyable experience!

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.
