Home Dog Training - Bark Busters San Luis Obispo


As a Bark Busters behavioral therapist and trainer, I will work with you to solve the issues you are experiencing with your dog. We can train any dog, any age, and any problem - even yours!

Are you irritated, frustrated, angry, or even desperate when dealing with your dog's inappropriate, embarrassing, or destructive behaviors? Don't worry any longer; you have come to the right place: Bark Busters Home Dog Training San Luis Obispo. Dog behavioral problems like excessive barking, jumping up, aggression towards people and other dogs, digging, marking, chewing, sibling rivalry and separation anxiety are only a few of the dog behavioral issues that we, as dog trainers, can help you begin to conquer in one visit, about three hours.

Bark Busters' method of pain-free, treat-free, clicker-free dog training is the best system for re-training "problem" dogs and turning them back into happy, settled family pets. We will teach you a system of communication your dog already knows, based on canine communication and pack behavior. You will learn how to use your body language and vocal communication to get your dog to focus and respect you. You can learn to educate your dog on what behaviors are acceptable and which are not. Our methods are designed to enhance the emotional humane-canine relationship-developing a balance of trust, respect, and bond.

We come to your home at a time convenient for everyone in your household. Dogs learn more quickly, suffer less stress, and pay attention better in their home environment. In the first session, you will see dramatic improvements in your dog's behavior. The effectiveness of the Bark Busters San Luis Obispo system and the speed with which it works is truly amazing.

We assess your personal situation and will custom tailor our dog obedience training to address the issues most important to you, based upon the temperament and needs of your dog.

Bark Busters believes in its method so strongly that we offer Guaranteed Lifetime Support. Bark Busters will return, free of charge, to work with you if any new behavioral issues arise or you just need a refresher course, for the LIFETIME of your dog. It gives you peace of mind, knowing you have a training partner for the life of your dog.

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.
