About Steve

Best Dog Training in Oxford Valley & Philadelphia!

Welcome. I am Steve Agocs, your local Bark Busters dog trainer in Oxford Valley and Philadelphia. While in the process of researching business opportunities, a new dog came into my life and made the household a little bit happier. Cody, a Great Pyrennees, was found limping along a highway somewhere in Tennessee, brought to a vet who treated his broken knee, and was living with a foster family (who also owned other Pyrenees) in Massachusetts. We were approved for his adoption, and the Great Pyrenees rescue organization arranged for his delivery to us in Langhorne. Cody now feels very content in his new "pack."

Having rescued all of the dogs that I previously owned and training each of them to understand the rules of the new house, it all fell into place when the Bark Busters opportunity presented itself. Here was a business that allowed me to work with man's best friend and the chance to do something I believe in: preventing otherwise good pets from being needlessly abandoned or destroyed for lack of training.

As a dog behavioral therapist and trainer, I can evaluate a dog's unwanted behavior, determine its underlying cause, and stop that behavior by training the dog (and teaching the owners how to communicate more effectively with their dog), all in the dog's home. The training methods are completely non-physical, stressing natural canine instincts and communication.

I also educate the owners so that they understand how to relate better to their dogs so they can then experience the joy and harmony of having obedient, relaxed dogs in their family. My goal is to help create happier homes with happy dogs as well-adjusted family members.

Oxford Valley & Philadelphia Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Absolutely amazing first session.In few few minutes of his demonstration Steve got my 3 high energy dogs (one is a 9 week old puppy-devil😅) under control and doing exactly what he wanted them to do. Shorty after they were sleeping around him.It was amazing to see. I love that if is not treat or fear motivated training.I never thought that I need to show my dog what to do by correcting negative behavior and not prohibiting it🤯.I can see results already. This is absolutely the best approach and the best results I ever tried before. Do it for yourself and your dogs.
Steve our trainer was awesome with his approach on how and what we should do to train our new king charles spaniel..Thanks Steve.
Today I let my dog off the leash to walk in a safe space with complete confidence. I cant begin to express what that was like. We got our dog from a rescue, we thought that we could handle the complexity of her past. Unfortunately, we found that we could not. She was aggressive towards other dog and would pull to the point that we didn't know what to do.THIS IS THE HONEST TRUTH. We didn't know what to do but after some research found Bark Busters. Then Steve came and helped us understand what was needed. We followed his direction and spent time developing a positive relationship that allowed us to better understand our new family member. The result is that we now have a completely new interaction. This process is VERY much worth it. Steve is very friendly and will give you the appropriate guidance to establish a good relationship with your dog. Follow the guidance, it really blew our mind and we know that there is a space where without what was learned this kind creature wouldn't have the ability to be herself. Bark Busters teaches you how to create a strong relationship with your dog through establishing a confidence in them where they express trust in you. It still blows my mind. A dog that was consider a hard walker is now what she is, and that's just a real wonderful creature. Thank you Steve...Thank you Thank you.

To whoever decides to do this, listen and allow the process to happen....It helps and it does works..SERIOUSLY.....
I rescued a dog who was picked up as a stray in Kentucky, put in a kill shelter, and then transferred to a no-kill shelter in Pennsylvania. Within days I discovered that he was not trained as a puppy, and we needed to start from scratch. The animal shelter estimated that he's 3-4 years old, but I would say he's more like 2 years old. His house manners were horrible. He wasn't leash trained. He was mouthy. He's very friendly to people, but he would jump on them, which is super annoying. In addition, he's very aggressive with other dogs. After working with Steve Agocs, his behavior has vastly improved. He's crate trained. We're very much enjoying our walks together. He sits on command. It's pretty easy to stop him from being mouthy. Now we're working on staying and not to running to the door when the bell rings. Steve is an excellent trainer. He really understands dogs, and he's super patient. Importantly, he's encouraged me not to give up. I believe with Steve's help, my dog will continue to make progress and emerge as a really awesome, loyal friend.
Steve was kind and patient and thorough. He arrived on time for the visits to my home and brought supplies, knowledge, and professionalism with him. Puppy has been very receptive to the techniques given me by Steve at Bark Busters. He is listening to my cues, deferred to my lead, and is less reactive to other dogs as he now knows that I am in charge and taking care of him.
I am very happy with my new lovely, less stressed doggie.
Thank you, Steve!
