Bark Busters Home Dog Training Treasure Coast Florida
It will be a week tomorrow that Karen and Marc gave Dane, the dog, and me our first lesson. It was a pleasure working with them, instructions were clear and easy to follow. Even Dane learned quickly. We have been practicing ever since just in our daily living. His separation anxiety is no longer demonstrated by his angry barking when he is left in his crate and I leave the house saying "I'll be back." One "baa" growl seems to convince him. It also works to keep him from banging on the front door and barking whenever I exit and he is not in his crate. He walks well on his new collar and leash. He still is overly friendly and likes to jump up to greet everyone. A "baa" though will stop that. I am waiting now to see if it will work with his aggression towards a dog or two he clearly dislikes. Since I try to avoid them, I can't say at this point. Obviously I recommend the barkbuster system and Karen and Marc Deppe.Nancy H.May 4 2017
Hello and thanks for visiting Bark Busters Treasure Coast. Karen and Marc Deppe are your Bark Busters Master dog trainers. They live in Vero Beach with their two daughters Lexi and Mandy. We both grew up with dogs that were very well loved but not very well trained. We each saw our family dog’s difficult behaviors cause conflict and stress between family members and visitors. After getting married, we adopted Bosco and immediately agreed to commit to training him properly to ensure the best possible experience for him and for us. We read books and worked with Bosco using several different training techniques and it was an incredibly rewarding experience. Bosco was a truly amazing companion and because he was so well trained, we brought him with us whenever we traveled and he always impressed everyone he met. We loved sharing our experience with Bosco with family and friends.
We really thought we knew what we were doing with dogs. After all, Bosco was awesome and we had read several books and watched dozens of instructional videos. After Bosco passed away after 15 amazing years, we adopted Jules, a very energetic pointer/vizsla puppy. We started to train her using the same techniques we had used with Bosco and needless to say, Jules was less than impressed! She would not listen, wouldn’t come when called and would go completely crazy in the house. We were at a loss and turned to YouTube and reading about the newest, latest and greatest training techniques wherever we could find them. Nothing was working and we felt pretty defeated until we called our friend who owned a Bark Busters franchise for help. To our amazement, with Derek’s help, Jules responded immediately. We were beyond impressed and eager to learn more. The more we learned, the more excited we became about Bark Busters. It’s been an amazing journey and we learn more from our clients and their amazing dogs every day. We look forward to helping you discover how to “speak dog”; it will forever change your relationship with your companion!”

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.
