Our method is simple, effective and dog centered; backed by over 30 years of development worldwide. So whether your dog is a puppy or an older dog you will see results in your first session.

In home dog training. I work with you and your dog right in your home because that’s where your dog is constantly learning. We want to make sure that s/he is learning what is ok and what is not ok. Once you are succeeding in your home we will move those skills into the outside world – so wherever you go you are succeeding.

We empower you to succeed. Our training is about building the relationship you want with your dog – a relationship built on Love, Trust and Respect. When leadership is clear – everything becomes easier – for you and your dog. Leadership for us means the “Good Boss” relationship. For the Good Boss we will do anything because we know the Good Boss is on our side and committed to our success.

No harsh methods. No shock collars, prong collars, or rolling dogs on their back. We believe those take away from our relationship with our dogs. Our method is incredibly flexible and adaptable. We can as gentile as a soft blanket with a young puppy or direct and clear with an aggressive dog.

Larry helped our household greatly. We have two dogs, but our bulldog has been our behavioral priority as he is about 100lbs but thinks he's 10. He was dangerous due to his severe anxiety and size, and we were terrified that we were going to need to find a new home for him. We have a baby and had to create separation of the living spaces due to the safety risks, but Larry helped us bring more unity back into the home, SAFELY. He provided us with the tools we needed to gain control again of our situation, where we can all share a happy living space now. We have been able to curb a lot of our dog's anxiety by being confident in our commands, so our anxiety has lifted too. Larry also helped us with something we never thought possible: our other dog is now safely able to go on walks without trying to kill other furry babies. :)

It is nice knowing if we ever have any questions or have any setbacks, Larry is there to help us work through it.

Thanks, Larry!
My dog Sophie is a rescue who didn't quite see me as alpha or care to listen to me. Even after the first session with Larry I saw an improvement. His training tactics gently set boundaries that Sophie has continued to follow in our practice sessions and in our life together. He provided all necessary tools for training which were included in the cost. I also have peace of mind knowing that there is lifelong support included in the training cost as well. I definitely recommend Bark Busters for professional dog training.
We can’t thank Bark Busters and Larry Rudginsky enough for our now well-behaved dog. We were desperate and needed immediate help for our then10-month-old mini-Aussie due to inappropriate barking at neighborhood dogs who barked uncontrollably all day long. We were also unable to take Kiwi out of our driveway or walk him on the street because of his behavior of herding and lunging at cars. We are amazed at Kiwi’s transformation! Training in our home environment was necessary since Kiwi’s previous training was not able to address the difficulties we faced. After several training visits teaching us how to be effective dog parents as well as the skills to employ during problem behaviors, we now have a well-trained dog who is a joy to be around. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Bark Busters and Larry. We highly recommend both Larry and Bark Busters, if you want to end your dogs problem behavior for good.
After the first lesson with my 4 crazy loud and stubborn dogs, I saw instant improvement. Every lesson since the first day has improved all of my dogs’ behaviors along with giving me confidence. I can now take my dogs for a walk in my neighborhood and hear my neighbors say hello to me rather than becoming deaf from my dogs’ loud barking. I am very pleased with Larry and his training, he kept in contact and checked up on us regularly.
Today was our first session with Larry Rudginsky and he is nothing short of amazing! We just could not get Lucy to listen and act upon anything we said. Today Larry taught us how to get our dog to perform. We are so impressed and cannot wait for our next lesson. We want our dog to behave, as we love to take her everywhere with us. After being so frustrated with her behavior, I now have the confidence that Larry is the one to show us how to have the perfect pup. If anyone out there needs dog assistance, We highly recommend Larry!
We love having Uncle Larry over! Finley has really started to learn to trust others when coming into the house. We’re starting out with simple tasks and expanding our knowledge, as well as Finley’s. Finley has really done a great job with the training and responds well to Larry’s sessions. We are very happy with our decision to go with Bark Busters!
We were impressed that they responded very well. Larry was amazing, professional, knowledgable, confident, and friendly. We look forward to more sessions.
We are really enjoying the program!
Larry is an amazing trainer. Rufus is responding well to the training and I am learning to be a better owner.
After just one training session, the techniques that Larry showed us are already making such a difference. He is helping us better understand Jolene's personality and behaviors, so that we know how to react with a dog's understanding versus a human's understanding.
We loved our first time training with Larry. We have seen amazing results just after one visit!
Walking our dogs used to be a very unpleasant thing because of pulling and lack of control. We had tried all kinds of methods and tools, but things did not improve much. And then Uncle Larry at Bark Busters came to the rescue with his magic words and walking harnesses. The change was immediate. We wish we had called him years ago. That alone was worth every penny. Also, our dogs no longer run to the door and jump all over our guests.
When we started, Biscuit constantly barked aggressively at our neighbor or anyone who walked past our yard. Additionally, he would charge out the door whenever it was opened and run right into whoever was trying to get out the door. With Larry’s help, he now will sit and wait. When he is outside and we say “in,” he immediately goes to the door. He has also quit barking at our neighbors! We were a little taken aback by the price but now believe it was a fantastic investment. Clearly, WE needed to be trained!
The first session was extremely informative. Larry taught us valuable techniques needed when working with Samson. He has responded very well in a controlled environment (at home). We look forward to our additional training sessions and hope they will help him carry over his learned skills in other settings.
We were very happy that Charlie responded so well to the first training session. Where we see a lot of changes in Charlie, we also see a lot of changes in us. We feel very positive about this training.
JUST WOW what a improvement!! When Larry came to our house the first time Roux was a hand full form the time she woke until bed time. We saw improvements after the first visit and equal improvements after each additional meeting. Today we continue to work with Roux regularly and are still seeing improvements. Cindy and I are convinced "Uncle Larry" speaks puppy dog and understands their response. So if you need help with a unruly pup look no further than Barkbusters and Uncle Larry.
Wish I would have heard about Larry and Bark Busters sooner! Our dog is a new and improved version of himself! After two sessions, he comes when called, waits calmly when the door bell rings, and walks properly on a leash by my side. Most of all, my tool bag is being filled with techniques to communicate to my dog in the kindest, most effective manner. I love the reassurance of frequent communication with my trainer. I don't feel alone and helpless in the raising of my dog anymore!
I searched for trainers that would help me train my dog inside my home. I'm glad that i went with bark busers. Larry was great and ladybug is responding to the training greatly!
We are encouraged that this will help us with Charlie. We saw progress while Larry was here and we have been able to use the communication for other issues that we haven't gone over yet with success.
My dog is a puppy and I wanted to make sure that I trained him correctly as he is going to get bigger.I have only had one session, but so far so good. I can definitely tell a huge difference just after 1 session.
Yes, I would recommend Larry, he is great with my dog and very easy to understand and work with.
I needed help with jumping, walking on the lead, and running the fence line.
Larry listened to my concerns and walked me thru the training program and each of the modules.
In one week - I definitely see an improvement. My trainer Larry Rudginsky was very helpful, very knowledgeable and kind. Larry was incredibly good with demonstrating good leadership skills while being very kind to my dogs which is extremely important. Did a great job putting it in easy to understand modules that were repeatable.
I purchased Bark Busters Home Dog Training when I realized Brio and I needed a better relationship.Brio would bark, growl, and snap at people when they arrived. He would not drop or release anything in his month - he would threaten you with a growl and then bite. He also tugged on leash and refused to listen. I starting searching for trainers that fitted my way of thinking toward positive behavior and not harsh methods. Larry told me about his company and their methods and gave me the information I needed. From day one he taught me methods of positive enforcement, leadership, body language; that I use get Brio to listen and obey. Larry knows canine psychology and he had the situation under control from the moment he met Brio. After two sessions Brio continues to improve. Larry makes his instructions easy to follow and takes his time to make sure you understand your homework assignments. I feel confident that Bark Busters is just the right thing for Brio and he will be a happier dog because of his training.
Larry is wonderful. I was extremely impressed with what Lucy was able to accomplish just in the first lesson.
We are so happy to have found Larry. We have two german shepherds, Ella and Layla. We had problems with them fighting, jumping on people and barking at visitors coming in the door. After the first visit with Larry we saw a difference in both dogs through the methods he taught us to use. Larry has been working with us for three months. He is the most patient person with the two of us and he is very patient with both dogs. I think he talks their language. When we first started this process I had my doubts about this working. Since Larry gave us the tools and knowledge of what to do I know now that we are on our way to success. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone who are at your wits end and don't know what to do. He has given us back some sanity.
Before Bark Busters, Gus was high strung and wild. He was escaping and running from us. He was terrorizing our cat and was too rough with our other dog. Since working with Larry & Bark Busters, we can tell a huge difference with Gus. He listens and responds to us now very quickly. He is acting like a totally different dog. He is much calmer and listens better. He is still a work in progress, but now he is responding. Bark Busters is a great program. I would most definitely recommend Bark Busters because it can make a huge difference in the lives of people with dogs. It is helping us enjoy our dog even more.
Marko had been through a lot of changes for a young dog. His owner died unexpectedly and he came to live with us in the middle of us moving. He was rambunctious, overly needy and generally acting like a very young pup. He is now 18 months old and weighs 90 lbs. Both my husband and I were unable to handle him due to his strength. We needed guidance in how to get him to listen and behave without any abuse.
Larry listened to Markos history and addressed his issues logically and with great compassion. He has taught us how to be the "leaders". He has been very positive, very encouraging and has shown us how to be firm and in charge with Marko. He has stayed in touch and has assured us that we will be able to have him behave as needed.
Marko has shown great improvement in behavior and in listening. He is maturing into his age and his intelligence is extraordinary. This is the first German Shepard I have ever worked with or owned. I have owned a number of dogs for both search and rescue and show. Larry has taught us an entirely new way of addressing dog behavior and it is working wonderfully. He has been patient and very instructive in working with us.
I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to anyone with a pet. The rates are very reasonable and the availability of the trainer is fantastic.
