Can’t leave your dog alone without guilt and frustration knowing the separation anxiety it feels when you’re gone?
We’re here to help!
Bark Busters is the worldwide leader in home dog training. We partner with dog owners to help resolve the most severe dog behavior issues, to help teach proper dog behavior, manners, and obedience, and to help build a foundation of love, respect, and trust between new dog owners and their pups as they begin puppy training.
We come to you, in your home, where most dog behavior issues occur. It’s also where you and your dog are most comfortable and can focus on your training without outside disruptions or distractions.
We only use positive, humane, methods which are based on the way dogs naturally communicate, including body language, voice tones, and canine leadership.
It’s not that your dog is “bad” or you are a bad dog trainer. Dogs learn from their mothers and siblings when they are first born. Then they learn from their environments, experiences, and families. As puppies, middle-age dogs, or senior dogs, whenever they arrive in your home and become part of your family, they learn from you.
We teach you how to communicate with your dog in a way that is easy for you to learn, and easy for your dog to understand, helping you to successfully teach your dog what behaviors are appropriate in your family, and what behaviors aren’t.
Through leadership, affirmation, and praise, we help you live a happier life together with your dog!
With our decades of experience in issue large and small, we can help you overcome any dog behavior issue, teach positive dog behavior, and manners to your new puppy, including:

We have the unique perspective of having once been Bark Busters clients ourselves. Our journey with Bark Busters began many years ago when Haley brought home an adorable Dalmatian, named Georgia, as she was heading off to college. She was afraid I would get lonely as an empty nester. In no time, I managed to turn this cute bundle of spots into an ill-behaved Diva. My dog was in charge, and not me. I called Bark Busters to help. Bark Busters taught me how to communicate with my dog, to help my dog trust me that I could provide safety and security and meet her needs. I was then able to reclaim my leadership role and return the peace in my home.
Now we have the privilege of helping other dog owners with their dog behavior issues and helping new dog owners establish a foundation of trust and respect when beginning puppy training.
