Best Dog Training Company in Charlotte South!
Welcome. I am Patrick Hickey, your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Charlotte South.
I've been an animal lover and dog owner all my life, but my heart still belongs to my 14-year-old Akita, named Karma. Sadly, Karma crossed over a short time ago after living a full and happy life after I rescued and rehabilitated her. I've also been a rescuer all my life, having served my country for more than 20 years in The Army and as a Medevac helicopter pilot. I'm a proud Army veteran and small business owner, and have been a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina for more than 10 years.
In addition to my military service, I've also previously worked at a large financial institution training clients. Through my military and corporate careers, I've dedicated my life to teaching, training, saving, and improving lives.
Now, as your local Bark Busters Certified Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist, I am able to merge my love and passion for dogs with my desire to teach, train, and rescue. Helping families live happier lives together with their dogs is my passion.
My dog training methods are based on the foundational principals of compassionate leadership, affirmation and praise, and safety and security. I help dog owners and their canine companions communicate, and watch unwanted dog behaviors disappear.
I look forward to using my skills, experience, and client service to help you and your family with your dog training or puppy training.

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 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.
