Bark Busters Home Dog Training Boston Massachusetts
We have 2 dogs Abby who is a blue heeler mix about 3 yrs old and laylas an american stafforshire mix at 1 yr old they.Abby had an issue with strangers coming into the home would lunge at their faces. we were certainly afriad she may bite someone. One day Abby and Layla got into 2 fights in one day when they had never gotten into a fight before after living together for about 10 month. This scared me and i felt uncomfortable letting the 2 dogs play together in fear they would end up fighting again but both dogs were so unhappy they loved each other and looked forward to their play time. The Minute Jason walked end ofcourse abby was barking and lunging at him Jason was able to make her stop and leave him alone when we have never been able to do that ourselfs it was really kind of amazing she was listening to someone she had never met. Jason gave us the tools we needed to show abby that we are the boss and to let her know when there is no threat. He also was able to give us peace of mind in assure the dogs are not fighters and will be perfectly fine being left alone with each other. we are well on our ways to have perfect dogs thanks to Jason.Amanda S.January 30 2018
Best Dog Training Boston MA
Jason has been a behavioral therapist with Barkbusters since 2006, and has worked for the past 8 years helping dog owners eliminate unwanted canine behaviors, such as jumping, pulling, peeing and ignoring their leader.
He has helped many clients ease the anxiety that is inevitable when a rescue dog is introduced to the new pack. "Oftentimes we don't know the dog's history,only the circumstances under which the dog has been rescued. No matter what the background, we work together to eliminate the stress and help the dog recognize the new pack leaders and firmly secure his/her place in the new pack."
A new puppy in the household presents a new challenge along with new frustrations. Jason has tailored his puppy training to encompass all commands and corrections, along with housebreaking, nutrition,safety, vet and grooming visits, and visits to the local dog park. "I love working with puppies -- it's very humbling to take on a new puppy, knowing that both the pup and owner have placed their trust and confidence in me for the pup's lifetime".
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.
