Bark Busters Home Dog Training Delaware, Newark, Wilmington DE
Best Dog Training Wilmington DE, Newark, Northern Delaware
Are you the proud pet parent of a new puppy and need some help with potty training, nipping and chewing or just want professional training to ensure your puppy grows into a happy, well behaved adult dog? Or do you have an older dog that has behavioral problems that leave you frustrated, annoyed and maybe even desperate to find a real solution?
Did you know that your dog probably doesn't realize he's misbehaving, or understand how frustrated you are with his actions? Often, a poorly behaving dog is doing his very best to fulfill his responsibilities as he understands them.
The problem is, your dog doesn't understand your rules or worse thinks he is in charge, and he makes bad decisions as a result.
How does this happen?
You're not communicating effectively. 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 Northern Delaware will show 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 guidance he's craving. We will teach you how to deal with your dog's behavior in a humane, non-physical manner, that doesn't require bribing the dog with treats. We'll also teach you how to have fun while you are doing it, so both you and your dog will enjoy it! Most importantly, we realize that you need training and a technique that fits with your lifestyle, so we come to you and can accommodate your busy schedule with a flexible appointment schedule

Since many of the obedience and behavioral issues you want to work on occur in your home, it makes sense to start your dog's training at home. We can also work in public and other locations where problems occur if necessary. We can bring our own dog(s) on lessons to recreate issues with other dogs, create distractions, work on advanced skills and practice socialization skills.
You don't have to resort to electrical shock collars or other coercive dog training measures -- Bark Busters Northern Delaware focuses on POSITIVE dog training! In-home dog training allows us to focus on improving your relationship with your dog. Our dog training strengthens and builds upon the 3 components of a good human-canine relationship; the bond, trust, and respect.

- Nuisance barking

A little more about us . . .
John Desiderio joined Bark Busters in 2004 after a 30-year career in the financial services industry honing his training and people skills. Retirement wasn't really an option with kids, dogs, parrots, and cats still at home expecting to eat regularly.
Steve Wolf joined Bark Busters after a career that included teaching high school Spanish and working in a variety of other service based industries.
We cannot imagine our lives without our dogs, without the companionship, entertainment and love that they bring us. Our goal is to make every one of our clients feel this way all of the time. Our favorite aspect of being trainers is when we see the realization and excitement on an owner's face when they realize that their dog can be well behaved. We love seeing the stress drift out of the room when owners realize that they can enjoy their dog all of the time, not just when the dog is behaving well.
We are committed to providing you with the best training experience possible. Let us help you find a new way to deal with your canine issues once and for all.
Please contact us to discuss your specific situation. Why put it off any longer?

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.
