Heather Crawford Bark Busters Dog Trainer Columbia North

Home Dog Training in Lexington, Irmo, and the Greater Columbia Area!

Are you experiencing behavioral issues with your dog? Our expert training methods can help.

Our cruelty free program focuses on natural canine communication, giving you the tools needed for success. Bark Busters' in-home approach has helped millions of dogs and owners throughout the world. Let me help you achieve these long lasting and effective results with your dog today.

I am Heather Crawford, your local Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in the Greater Columbia area. A proud native of South Carolina, I attended college in Columbia and worked in the healthcare field for more than 25 years. I have been an animal lover all my life and over the years have raised a variety - from dogs and cats to reptiles, rodents, and farm animals.

I love spending quality time with my friends and family, including my two teenage daughters, and am often found in areas like Five Points and Riverfront Park. I am passionate about feeding the local community, especially our veterans and the homeless, and love exploring new places as a travel, hiking, and foodie enthusiast. I am dedicated to supporting local businesses and volunteering regularly at our local Humane Society.

After I became acquainted with the Bark Busters method, I was inspired to become a dog trainer myself and use these techniques to help families live happier lives together with their dogs. We do not use harsh physical techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior. 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.

Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. Please reach out to me to learn more!

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 is 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 to 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.

Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. Get Started Today!

We customize our training sessions to achieve your specific goals and 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.
