The Best Dog Training in the Research Triangle (Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Cary, NC)

Is your dog’s behavior issues causing stress in your home or in your relationships?

Have you recently adopted a puppy and are struggling with normal puppy training issues like chewing, nipping, and potty training?

Does your dog take you for walks around the neighborhood?

I understand, and Bark Busters Home Dog Training is here to help you! Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training, helping over 1 million families and their dogs for more than 30 years!


Our distinctive methodology is built on leadership, respect, and trust. At Bark Busters, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans which is typically the root of many behavioral issues, by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!

My nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively – all in the safe, familiar environment of your own home. Dogs learn best in a familiar environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions.

My training methods are efficient and results oriented. I prioritize clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur. This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.


I work with you in your home and tailor my dog training and puppy training methods to your specific goals, and to meet your dog’s unique needs. When you "Learn to Speak Dog the Bark Busters Way," you get real results – and nurture positive relationships and lasting emotional bonds with your canine family member.

Home Dog Training. I come to your home where most of your dog obedience issues occur. Your dog is most comfortable and receptive to training in its own environment.

Personalized Dog Training of all Ages and Breeds, including Puppy Training! There is no "one size fits all" for dog training or puppy training. I work with you to personalize a plan for you and your family based on your goals and your dog’s needs.

Dog-Friendly Training Methods Only! Our training is humane and produces lifetime results. I do NOT use choke collars, shock collars, prong collars, or clickers. And, while dog treats are fun, they shouldn’t be a constant aspect of training, but rather a ‘treat’.

Effective Dog Training. Our first lesson runs approximately two - three hours, with any lingering issues addressed in follow-up sessions. You'll be amazed at the difference in your dog's behavior even after one lesson!

Learn to Communicate with Your Dog. I will teach you a method of communication that your dog understands based on body language, and natural dog instincts. You will learn how to use voice tones and your body language to better communicate with you dog in order to allow your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. By reinforcing our training techniques 10-15 minutes a day, you will build a relationship with your dog based on mutual trust, love, and respect.

Life of Dog Support Guarantee. If you purchase our gold service and continue to follow our training instructions provided during our lessons, I provide training support for you and your dog for the life of your dog without any additional charges. If former issues resurface or new training needs arise, I will be there for you and your pup for the life of your dog!
