Best Dog Training in Southern New England!
If you are reading this then you're probably frustrated with your dog's behavior and you may be comparing dog trainers and dog training programs.The Bark Busters dog training program is unlike any other dog training system.
Welcome. I am Scot Masamery. As your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Southern New England, I specialize in helping people through difficult situations, and partnering with them to solve their problems! I can help fix these problems, and make it better, not just make it bearable.
After many years as a funeral director, guiding, and supporting grieving families through the process of losing a loved one, I felt the need to transition from the sadness into a happier lifestyle. Over the years, I often thought about making a career move into a more upbeat, fun, and exciting business; however, I did not want to lose the reward of helping people get through a difficult time in their life. Bark Busters was the answer! At Bark Busters, I help families live a happier life together with their dogs!
Most dog training systems meet once per week at a pre-determined time, day, and place for a pre-determined number of weeks, and they will cover pre-determined obedience issues regardless of what your specific issues may be. That is not the Bark Busters Home Dog Training way.
In home dog training. I come to you! I meet you at your home where your dog is the most comfortable, less stressed, most receptive and most likely to display bad behaviors. We will also work with your dog outdoors on socialization, distraction, and issues such as leash pulling.
Personalized dog training. Bark Busters does not believe in a "one size fits all" dog training approach like you'll sometimes see in group or puppy training classes. Instead, I develop a personalized dog training and dog behavior modification program based on your dog's temperament and issues as well as your home environment. With Bark Busters, we will customize a program for you and meet at the time of your choice, on the day of your choice, in your home, for as many weeks, months or years as you need us as we are goal-oriented - not time-oriented - and we will cover any and all behavioral issues that are frustrating you.
See immediate results. Dogs of any breed, any age and any issue are trainable. Most customers see immediate positive behavioral changes in their dogs during our initial 3-hour training session. You will be amazed at how quickly your dog learns and you will feel encouraged and empowered to keep training!
Positive dog-friendly methods. Unlike some dog trainers, Bark Busters does not use harsh dog training techniques - we don't believe in shock collars, prong collars, or physical punishment. Nor do we teach you to bribe your dog with food or unnecessary treats to extort good behavior. Our dog training focuses communication, and on positive reinforcement and praise, which produces longer-lasting results than treat training or force.
Focus on communication. We speak dog! Dogs can't speak English, so it's no wonder they can't understand our verbal commands. I will teach you how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands. You will learn how to use your body language and vocal tones to get your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. By reinforcing our dog training techniques 10 - 15 minutes/day, you will soon have a well-mannered and obedient dog.
Any dog, any breed, any age and any assue. Because all dogs speak the same language, our dog training system works for any dog, any age, any issue! Puppies and their owners can start off on the right paw, eliminating behavior issues before they can even start, and old dogs any learn new tricks.
Puppy training. Behavioral problems are treatable but prevention is easier! Do you want a puppy who listens to you even when you don't have a treat in your hand? Do you want a dog who doesn't wear you out with housebreaking or chew your furniture? Ask about my puppy program to help you build a strong, life-long foundation for good behavior.
Vet recommended. No one is more familiar with the effectiveness of the local dog training alternatives than our own veterinarians, and those in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island overwhelmingly recommend Bark Busters. They know our mission is to prevent dogs from being euthanized or abandoned due to bad behavior. Too many dog owners trade in their dog in hopes of replacing him or her with a "good dog." I believe any dog can be a "good dog" with the right training and leadership.
