About Kurt & Pauline

Best Dog Training in Acadiana, LA!

We are Kurt and Pauline Richard, your local Acadiana Bark Busters dog trainers. As dog trainers for over 7 years, we have successfully trained hundreds of dogs throughout the Acadiana area. Our services are recommended by veterinary offices throughout the state. We've never met a dog I couldn't train, so we are 100% certain we can help you train yours!

There is no dog behavior that is impossible to change. If someone has told you that it's too late or that your dog is not trainable, they just haven't learned how. How do I know the Bark Busters method will be successful? Worldwide, Bark Busters has successfully trained 1 million dogs - even dogs that other dog trainers have been unable to train.

In home training - where your dog is the most comfortable, less stressed, most receptive and most likely to display bad behaviors.

Personalized dog training - no "one size fits all" like dog training or puppy training classes. I develop a personalized one-on-one lesson plan based on your dog's particular issues and your goals.

Positive dog training - no shock collars or clickers. Our Arnaudville dog training is humane and produces longer lasting results than treat training or force.

Effective dog training. Our first lessons will run approximately 3 - 4 hours with any lingering issues addressed in follow-up sessions. You'll be amazed at the results and the difference in your dog's behavior after one lesson! You will learn more in our first training lesson and get better results than in group classes that last six weeks.

Communicating with your dog - I will teach you a method of communication that your dog already understands, based on canine communication, body language, and pack leadership. You will learn how to use your body language and vocal communication to get your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. By reinforcing our dog training techniques 10 - 15 minutes a day, you will soon become a knowledgeable and proud dog owner.

Life of the Dog Guarantee. This guarantee simply states that if you carry out the training instructions provided at our dog training lesson, myself or another Bark Busters therapist (in case you move) will work with you for the life of the dog at no additional charge.

Too often dog owners want to get rid of their dog for a "good dog". Dogs are not born good or bad - they all want discipline and to learn the house rules. They want to please you - they just don't know how until you are both on the same page.

We will teach you to be the "leader of the pack" so your dog listens to you. This will end your frustration and his, putting you on the path to having the beloved family pet you want!

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.

You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.

Arnaudville Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Pauline knows dogs. My wife and I are retired professionals and neither one of us are easily impressed. We are quite impressed with Pauline, as well as her wealth of knowledge and experience with dogs. We will recommend Pauline and Bark Busters to anyone seeking a trainer. Pauline’s abilities with your dog(s) need to be experienced to be appreciated.
I can not say how happy and impressed I am to have Mrs. Pauline as my trainer. I have a German Shepherd and Mrs. Pauline has opened up a whole new window for us. Taught me so much, I really look forward to the days she comes to my home, every time she comes we learn something new, cannot ask for anything better from a trainer!!! This is something I do NOT regret!!!
Pauline was a real help in explaining the program and by demonstrating the techniques. I saw noticeable results right away. Very pleased with the natural training. The training experience was both interesting and enjoyable for both me and my Sadie. I would recommend Bark Busters because it is an excellent program. Pauline and this program give me much hope for my dog Sadie and myself.
I truly am amazed how effective the "Bah" is in training my dogs. I enjoyed the interactive experience with my pets and Pauline. The training methods definitely worked and with proper follow through I will continue to address my problems with Mia.
I was amazed by how the "Bah" works. The natural training techniques are simpler than I thought and are very humane. I have already recommended Bark Busters to friends.
I have already told people what an excellent experience it is to work with Pauline and Bark Busters.
Pauline has helped us to understand that the dog cannot learn to think like a human, but she has taught us to think like the dog does. We noticed changes in our dogs within 15 minutes of practicing the natural training method that we were shown. We recommend Bark Busters because after fighting frustration for months I could not believe how simple this is.
We recommend Bark Busters because of the humane treatment of the animal. Pauline is very patient with our dog Hoover. He came from an unspeakable background and needed the training with tender love and care.
I had immediate results. Thanks, Bark Busters.
I have already began singing praises to Bark Busters. I wish I would have did this before my children were born.
We agree with avoidance of physical punishment. We have already recommended Bark Busters to a friend and we look forward to continued successful training.
We recommend Bark Buster training because it is amazing and easy.
Kurt & Pauline helped us to understand the pack law. We saw results at once and liked the fact that there is no need for hitting your dog when training. We are happy to understand that the dog shaking while training is not fear. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone because it works.
Pauline answered all our questions, demonstrated the techniques and is very knowledgeable and helpful. I saw immediate results. I recommend Bark Busters because it really works.
We are on our way to solving the only problem we could not solve with the help of Bark Busters. Amazing! By the end of the first half hour, Bugs was following the sit & stay command. I would recommend Bark Buster training to any dog owner.
The training techniques are very easy to follow and it was amazing to see Ellie following the commands immediately. I am very pleased with Bark Busters and think that it is common sense techniques when you stop and think about it. I definitely recommend Bark Busters I think it would help any dog owner with any type of problems.
The techniques are very easy for all members of my family. After only one session it was so noticeable the change in Buddy and he is so enjoyable now. Pauline takes so much time and is so patient and her skill and quality of instruction is wonderful. We are very pleased with the natural methods used by Bark Busters. Jack Russell's are usually very hard headed, but Buddy has come around about 180 degrees since his training began and he is most enjoyable to have in the house now. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone who has a dog with behavioral problems.
