Home Dog Training in Rockland & South Orange County!

Bark Busters is the worldwide leader in home dog training. Here in Rockland County and South Orange County, NY, I am your local Bark Busters Certified Master Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist.

For the last 18 years, I've worked with more than 3,000 dogs and dog owners helping to solve dog behavioral problems, teaching dog obedience and puppy training. My goal is to help local families and dog owners live a happier life together.

  • I can help you solve all severe dog behavior issues, such as an unruly or destructive dog, or a dog with anxiety, aggression, or bad potty habits.
  • I can also help you with all your foundational puppy training needs to set your new puppy up for success in your home - teaching puppy training basics such as obedience, crate training, housebreaking, and the rules of your house.
  • I partner with you on all your personal and specific dog training goals and needs, and we will work together to build a balanced relationship between you and your dog that is based on love, trust, and respect.

I welcome you to learn more about my in home, one-on-one training methods, dog training and puppy training services, and how I can help you resolve all your dog behavior issues!

My Dog Training and Puppy Training Methods & Services

Be prepared to learn some new things about how your dog thinks and communicates and be ready to have some fun doing it! By the end of our first lesson together most clients see a dramatic change in their dog’s behavior, and with follow-up practice this better behavior will become established.

All dog training and puppy training is done with you, one-on-one, in your home. After all, this is where you are experiencing dog behavioral problems, or training your puppy. It is also where there are less distractions, so your dog can be more focused, relaxed, and better able to learn and retain our teachings. I come to you!

My dog training and puppy training techniques and methods are based on how dogs communicate with each other and are instinctive and humane - no harsh punishments, no physical manipulation, no shock collars or prong collars! I would never have you do anything to your dog that I would not do to my own. Establishing loving and trusting leadership, and a mutual respect between you and your dog, through the foundational principal of communication - body language and voice tones, that are instinctive to dogs - is what my training methods are all about.

More About Your Certified Master Dog Trainer & Dog Behavioral Therapist, Michelle McCarthy

For nearly 18 years I have had the privilege of training more than 3,000 dogs, from Chihuahuas to Pit-Bulls to Great Danes, and all other breeds in between! I have worked with rescue dogs, foster dogs, pure-bred dogs, mutts, show-dogs – you name it. I help clients get their 8-week-old puppies started off on the right paw, as well as helping clients with senior dogs get problem behaviors resolved. Any Age. Any Breed. Any Issue.

I’ve had a passion for dogs, and all animals, my entire life and made the decision to dedicate my career to helping dogs and their owners. At that point I was in much the same place that you are right now - doing research and looking at the different kinds of available dog training philosophies and methods.

When I first learned about Bark Busters, I knew it was the right dog training methodology for me, it just made sense! At its very core, Bark Busters dog training is about understanding and communicating with dogs in a natural way, in the way that dogs themselves communicate with each other. At the time, and since then, I have not found any other dog training technique rooted in this philosophy.

I teach you to understand your dog from your dog's perspective and to how to meet your dog's needs in a way that makes sense to your dog! This is different and unique from any other training method that I have found. When we work together you will see this process and how well it works with your dog’s natural way of seeing the world! It’s pretty awesome and I look forward to sharing it with you!
