Best Dog Training in Cedar Rapids!
Is your dog driving you nuts?
This may seem like common sense but many people don’t think about this:
Your dog doesn’t speak English, or Spanish, or German, Dutch, Mandarin, etc. He speaks DOG. Do you? Because if you don’t, he doesn’t understand what you’re saying at least 90% of the time. A lack of communication is often at the root of owner/dog issues. I can help with that.
I am Janie Fairchild, your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Cedar Rapids. I can help you attain the leader role in your pack/family by incorporating Patience and the 4 C’S: Calmness, Confidence, Consistency, and Communication.
I use dog friendly methods. Never anything harsh (no shock collars, no prong collars, no physical punishments). I look at your dog’s world in much the same way your dog does. I listen to you; I observe your dog, all in an attempt to determine what is causing your dog to misbehave. Once determined, I help you change that.
I can help you develop mutual trust and respect as well as developing/strengthening the bond between you and your dog. In my 11 years as a Bark Busters Trainer I’ve encountered nearly every issue you can imagine, and probably a few you can’t. However, every time I’m invited into your home and your dog’s environment it’s a unique experience. No one else’s issues with their dog/dogs are exactly like yours, so I look at each experience with fresh eyes.
I come to your home initially, where we begin our journey, but if issues warrant we may also venture out to your local pet store, dog park, veterinary office, etc. if those are problem areas for you.
Bottom line is, you will be the calm, confident leader your dog is hoping for. You will be communicating with him in a language he understands. You will be his protector so he doesn’t have to be yours. And I will be there to help you along the way.
If you haven't already done so, please take the time to rate your dog's behavior by taking our online behavioral quiz.

At Bark Busters Cedar Rapids, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans at the root of many behavioral issues by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!
Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.
This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love. Most people don't know how to appeal to a dog's natural sense of leadership or communication. We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.
