Bark Busters Home Dog Training Florida, Tampa, Palm Harbor & Areas
Jeff & Cathy are great! Our pup, Molly, has an anxious personality & since we've started working with Bark Busters, she's growing into a relaxed, snuggly, playful puppy. Molly now comes when called, without having to give her a treat. She's no longer pulling on her leash & has made great strides not jumping on guests coming into our house. I have no doubt that she's going to grow into an obedient, happy girl. We were extremely excited to find quality trainers in Tampa that do not use E-Collars. Jeff & Cathy are very professional, have been on time for every training appointment & have kept a regular schedule for our training sessions. We look forward to continuing to work with Bark Busters.Nicole W.June 24 2016
Best Dog Training Tampa, Florida
Welcome to our page and thank you for your interest in Bark Busters Home Dog Training. Since 2003 Cathy and Jeff have been working as a team helping our clients teach their puppies and dogs how to fit into their families. We'd be happy to learn about you and your dog(s) and answer all your questions regarding how we can help you.
Jeff and Cathy work with families living in Avila, Brooksville, Carrollwood, Channelside, Citrus Park, Davis and Harbor Islands, Hyde Park, Odessa, Oldsmar, Palm Harbor, Seminole Heights, Spring Hill, South Tampa, Town N' Country, Trinity, Westchase, and Ybor.
We've worked with puppies as young as five weeks and dogs as old as eighteen years. We've also worked with packs as large as eleven. We don't discriminate regarding breeds or issues.
From early puppy education to issues such as aggression, and separation anxiety we have the knowledge and experience to help.
Dogs are life long learners and we've never met a dog who can't learn. It's never too early or too late to begin teaching your dog(s) how to be good family members.
Bark Busters uses positive, dog friendly communication techniques that dogs instinctively understand. This typically speeds up the education process, without using treats, clickers or any harsh or physical methods. We will never use prong, pinch, shock (e-collar) or choke collars, nor will we ever force a dog to do anything. We help our clients teach their dogs to think and make choices.
Since 2013 Jeff has also been Bark Buster's assistant director of training, helping both clients and trainers in the USA and in other countries (Australia, Canada and the U.K.) with difficult issues.
Jeff is regularly consulted by Rescue Groups regarding the behavior of dogs in their care and Jeff & Cathy volunteer with Golden Retriever Rescue. They were selected as volunteers of the year 2013 by Golden Retriever Rescue and in 2015 by Siberian Husky Rescue.
Cathy and Jeff have worked with numerous veterinarians with their personal dogs and they are regularly invited to speak with veterinary staffs and with students in veterinary technology program at local colleges regarding behavior.
No matter if you have a new puppy or a senior dog, a mix breed rescue or pure bred dog we can tailor a program for you and your canine family member(s). Life isn't static, and changes in our lives do affect our dogs. With our guaranteed lifetime support you can be assured that you will have help when needed, no matter what the issue(s).
Again thank you for your interest and we look forward to speaking with you so we can answer your questions.

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.
