Is your dog's barking out of control? Do you avoid taking him/her for walk because every step is a struggle?Are you worried about his/her anxiety when you're not at home? Do you want to give your new puppy or rescue dog a loving, secure new beginning? At times, behavioral issues we have with our dogs can seem overwhelming. Bark Busters Home Dog Training is your solution.
I'm Sue Doyle - your Dog Behavioral Therapist and Trainer here in the South Bay. I provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to resolve your dog's current problems and to prevent future ones. We start with an understanding of canine instinct and perception. I teach you how best to communicate with your dog using holistic, non-physical training methods that are based upon the way dogs communicate with one another.
You want to include your dog in the activities that are important to you. That begins with interaction with family, friends, neighbors and others (both human and animal) at home and in your neighborhood. We continue at local parks, such as Valley, Wilson and Averill; as well as popular dog-walking paths, such as the Esplanade and Ocean Trails. We can even meet for a lesson at your local place of business or a dog-friendly café.
My goal is for you to have the best possible relationship with your canine companion - a relationship based on mutual bonding, respect and trust - one in which your dog fully recognizes your strong pack leadership. Misbehaving dogs aren't "bad dogs." They are acting out of instinct, based on what we are (usually inadvertently) communicating to them by our physical and verbal cues.Strong leadership eliminates the reason for the unwanted behavior... communication and guidance show your dog the desired behavior.
About Bark Busters of South Bay
My former dog, Tessa, and I were Pet Partners with the Delta Society for 11 years, bringing joy and affection to clients at mental health institutions, convalescent homes, and the Special Olympics. My current dog, Kieran, is more athletic - participating in Earth Dog competition and Agility classes. A few years ago, he convinced me to become an officer in the Welsh Terrier Club of Southern California. He and I have represented the Welshies several times in the AKC "Meet the Breeds" booth at the Long Beach Convention Center.Last September, Kieran and I were featured on Torrance CitiCable 3's show "K9 Corner."
Your dogs can achieve their best if you understand their needs and motivations, and if you communicate clearly with them.Let's get started!

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.
