Best Dog Training in Greater Dallas, TX!

Have you recently rescued a dog and are struggling with severe dog behavior issues, like aggression or separation anxiety? Do you need help with puppy training to help your pup learn manners in your human home? Are you walking your dog on a leash or is your dog taking you for a walk?

We are here to help you solve all your dog behavior issues, teach basic dog obedience, and puppy training!

Welcome. We are Mike and Judy Shamp, your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Dallas. Our love and passion for dogs led us to join Bark Busters in 2006. As Master Dog Trainers and Dog Behavior Therapists we look forward to helping families solve even the most difficult behaviors.

As lifetime dog owners we cannot imagine life without a well-trained canine companion. Mike began training dogs in the early 1980’s when he fostered and eventually adopted an aggressive 9 month old Golden Retriever. His experience with Chelsea honed Mike’s skills and prepared him to help other foster dogs get ready for their forever homes.

Judy has rescued lost and injured animals and dogs since she was a young girl. She is now President of Gold Coast Greyhound Adoptions, Judy has cared for and facilitated the placement of over 3,500 Greyhounds into loving and caring homes in more than 12 states and Canada.

Our distinctive methodology is built on leadership, respect, and trust. By teaching everyone to speak the same language - dog! - we help you establish the relationship between you and your dog that you crave and your dog needs! Learn how to communicate with your dog in a humane, non-physical manner. 

In-Home Dog Training. Our efficient, results-oriented training program prioritizes clear communication and compassionate leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur. This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog. Dogs are more comfortable and have more focus when they are trained in their own home, and we are able to work with you one-on-one to meet your specific goals and your dog's unique needs.

We have only had our first session with Mike at Bark Busters and it’s already worth every penny. Here are my two extremely food motivated cardigan welsh corgis patiently resting outside the kitchen while I am cutting up chicken!!! (I put the tape down as a visual aid to myself, the corgs don’t need it!) I feel like Mike taught us how to speak the dogs’ language and the poor things are like “Oh, THAT’s what you wanted? Well why didn't you just say so?” Thank you Mike!!!
Mike was great to work with. He has an immense amount of experience and was able to teach us how to properly lead and train our dog. Even after 1 session, we are so much more confident that we can keep her under control when she’s walking passed other dogs and their owners at our apartment complex.
Hi Mike!! Just wanted to share this with you. Bear has made a friend after only meeting yesterday! No growling during play or anything. Thank you for educating me on her needs and showing me how to introduce!!
A week has made a huge difference already! Wowwww! We have a more peaceful home now…thank you, Mike!
Mike has been great with Henry and I. After two lessons, my 5 month old terrier puppy has learned to respect my space, he sits on command, comes (most of the time), and is already starting to walk gently on the leash. Mike really is great, and both Henry & I would highly recommend him.
Mike has been such a blessing! Teaching me and then working with me and my dogs to have a happier, calmer and more behaved life! I saw instant results with the tools Mike gave me at our first session, with practice and reinforcement. We just had our second session on walking on a loose leash- truly amazing progress!!!!! Loving this training.
Mike was very thorough explaining the training philosophy and checking with us for understanding.
We first called Bark Busters when we got a puppy 3 years ago, mike taught us all of the basic behavioral things and was a huge help!! Honey immediately became a better pup thanks to Mike. 3 years down the road, Honey began barking more and more so we asked mike to come back and help us out again. He was more than willing to help, and within one session our dog showed a huge change! We highly recommend Mike, he is the best!

Never could have imagined that our stray pitbull we adopted would be able to be in the same room as our husky. Our pitbull was dog aggressive with a whole range of heart problems that complicated normal socialization practices. Mike Shamp helped us navigate both physical and emotional challenges with her, and as a result, the dogs don't just get along but are the best of friends. I cannot recommend Mike & Bark Busters more!
Mike was fantastic! Annie was 4 months old and had a terrible tendency to bite and nip. Not a single day went by without me or my wife bleeding from the sharp puppy teeth as she just wouldn't stop biting. After one session with Mike, the biting stopped! We had Mike return for a 2nd session to help us with walking her without her pulling on her leash. Again, after that one session Annie is a pleasure to walk. I would highly recommend Mike and Bark Busters to anyone interested in learning how to properly train your dog. I even referred my son to them!
Apollo has been Phenomenal since training. I have currently taken him to my cousins house where there are 2 males (humans ) in the household and he has been doing really well . They also have other animals here so he has been playing with them, there hasn't been signs of aggression or anything. He has been great.
This was the BEST training session I have ever had! And it was on ZOOM! I just adopted a retired racing greyhound. She has a few challenges that I didn't know how to address. From the suggestion of a fellow greyhound lover, I called Mike and Judy Shamp at Bark Busters Dallas. I was very skeptical that this would be a good experience since it was virtual. I am skeptical NO MORE!!! Mike taught me so many useful techniques that are actually working!! And he watched me to give guidance and direction. I highly recommend Bark Busters Dallas for any training guidance you may need!!!
Karen is happy to let you know that the "BBBAAAAAAHHHH" sound has been effective for both Google, and her own girl, Zuri.
Both pay better attention and respond to that utterance!
We were both very glad to see that respecting Google and his "quirks" for who he is,that was also important.
Your plan of action is very helpful, and as usual, I learned a lot.
Many thanks!
It’s amazing how much you can learn about yourself and your dog after the first training session. Our Dallas located trainer Mike was so nice and knowledgeable. Some of the things we worked on Kodak responded to quickly and I’m already seeing a difference. There are other things I know will take time and work but I am excited to take advantage of the lifetime support to continue to work on his current issues as well as any that come up in the future. Highly recommend Mike as a trainer and the Bark Busters method. I appreciate the customization of the training to my dog as well as the non treat and non aggressive tactics. The goodies that come with the training are already getting put to great use. Highly recommend and I definitely think you get your money’s worth plus a happier and healthier relationship with your dog.
Mike was so helpful in training with Daisy! Within the lesson, I was already seeing her become more comfortable with her crate and separation. Daisy responded so well with the methods given to me. I am so excited to watch her progress.
On our first training session Mike was able to help my dog with three of his major issues - separation anxiety, pulling on the leash, and barking. I was so impressed and had no clue his 'issues' could be fixed so quickly without any harsh punishments. Bark Busters is definitely worth it!!
I was pleasantly SHOCKED!!!! We just met Mike yesterday, and within the first 15 minutes, I saw a dramatic change in Nikki and Sofie's behavior! This morning, I used Mike's techniques, and had the best morning with my dogs than I ever had!!!!! Mike is the Super Dog Trainer!
Training is going great! Aspen is a sweet angel, especially to me - it has been such a change. So thankful for you coming out!
Mike was amazing with our dog! He gave us the confidence to take charge and become the Alphas in our own home. We also learned how to deal and help with our dog's separation anxiety, jumping up and pulling on walks. He's a great teacher!
We are first time dog owners and know very little about the ends and outs of training a new puppy. We were so relieved to meet with Mike. Mike was so helpful in teaching us how to best improve our relationship with Lilly as well as tips on how to handle her typical puppy behaviors. We look forward to meeting with Mike Lilly grows. I highly recommend Mike and Bark Busters!
What a MAJOR difference one lesson made. Corey was jumping, biting fingers,not come when called, was a WILD CHILD. We had our first visitor today, 24hrs after seeing Mike and they could not believe it was the same dog. Life is so much better in our home. After our friends got home they called to say what a change they saw and wanted the phone number and name of his trainer. We both own Corgis, lovable but bossy
Mike is amazing! We were so pleased to see progress with our pup within hours of his first training. Mike was so patient and helpful, while answering all of our questions and reassuring us that Chance was trainable. We are confident that Bark Busters was the right choice and we feel so lucky to have found Mike! Highly reccomend!
Very Helpful! Appreciate the positive Reinforcement techniques compared to other Companies/trainers I interviewed (SMS Collars, Treat based, etc.) Very Pleased so far, Mike was a great trainer!
We were very pleased with the first session and believe the training will be good for us and Thor. All of our problems were talked about and training instructions for a few of many problems to start with are being used to start his training.
Mike did a great job with Chip and Lotty (and their people). After the first lesson, they are already barking less and not rushing to the door when the doorbell rings.
