Best Dog Training in Central New Jersey

A dog is pack animal, and as such needs a leader. Left to their own devices, a dog will often take over the leadership... which will result in many unwanted behaviors. These behaviors include:

Barking: People tend to think that barking is natural to a dog, it is not. A dog will bark to alert the pack that there is a threat, or bark at the owner because they want something. Both stop once the dog knows that the owner is a good leader.

Pulling on leash: The dog will want to go first if they perceive they are in charge, as the leader always leads. This also changes as the owner assumes leadership.

Separation Anxiety: The dog feels that they "own" the owner, and that will manifest as barking or possible destruction of property as the dog acts out as they didn't give "permission" for the owner to leave. Again, this changes as the owner assumes leadership.

Aggression: Is fear based as the dog will have fear from being in charge in a domestic situation, which they are not equipped to do. Also solved through giving the owner leadership.

Other behaviors we eliminate/teach:

  • Jumping
  • Nipping, Chewing, Mouthing
  • Basic Obedience (Sit, Stay, Down, Come)
  • Digging in the Yard
  • Toileting in the house
  • Puppy Training
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Over Excitability
  • And MORE!

How do we do it? We use natural methods (voice tones and body language rather than treats or physical methods) to give you leadership over your dog! I have trained over 2,000 dogs in the last nine years. Historically, you will see 80% to 90% improvement in the very first lesson. The most popular client comment after the first lesson: "Whose dog is this?" The dog appears to be different because the owner is now different, and the dog responds accordingly! This ultimately leads to a fun, happy and well-balanced relationship with your dog. Isn't that what you want? After all, a dog should add to your life... nott become a detraction or a source of constant worry!

I work in your home, because that's where many of the unwanted behaviors occur. Many veterinarians and clients refer me, as they have seen the results of Bark Busters training.

If you have a new puppy, let's get you started out right. If you have a dog exhibiting unwanted behavior, let's correct it.If you are ready to re-home your dog, don't do it until you give us a try.

I can train any dog, any age, with any problem!
