Bark Busters Home Dog Training Hampton VA, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach

Best Dog Training Chesapeake VA, Hampton, Virginia Beach.

"Does your dog have a nickname?" the commercial asked in an Aussie voice. Sitting in a Firefighter TV room I answered "Yes, and none of them are very positive either!"... BARK BUSTERS -HOME DOG TRAINING!" Wait a minute, I thought, they come to your home? Wow, this is a "No-Brainer!"

The next morning I was on the Internet and learned that the trainer in VA Beach didn't service my area. This sent me on a detailed research on Bark Busters and how I could become part of this team.

After deligent prayer and a plane ride to Denver Colorado, I became part of the Bark Busters team in 2005. Now, I want to help resolve issues you and your family might be experiencing that are keeping your dog (or dogs) from being a positive addition to your household. And the best thing is that we do that in your your home....or, as your pooch might see it, his or her home! I would love the opportunity to make that a reality... A happier home with your Pup.

Bark Busters Home Dog Training Services

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.
