Best Dog Training in Phoenix-Scottsdale, AZ!

Welcome to Bark Busters Phoenix-Scottsdale! Our expert team is made up of our Master Dog Trainers and Dog Behavioral Therapists, Connor, Hanna, and Michelle.

Every day we are awarded the opportunity to teach and coach our clients, using natural communication methods that dogs understand. Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. Just ask the 8,000+ dogs our team has trained in the Arizona Valley!

Most of our clients see results within the first training session. We provide instructions, feedback, homework, and plans for returning, if needed. We believe getting your dog on track is a team effort and it requires a partnership from the dog owner, dog trainer, and your dog!  Many clients have come to us after other types of training methods have failed. Don’t give up on your dog without working with us first. Bark Busters Home Dog Training has saved many dogs that would have gone to shelters, been rehomed, or been euthanized because of behavioral issues.

We are here to help you so that you can live a happier life together with your dog. There are so many aspects of our job that we enjoy: helping people, meeting wonderful dogs, and opening an owner’s eyes to their dog’s true potential. It’s our passion to help owner’s and their dogs live a happier life together that they both desire and deserve.

In home dog training. Bark Busters’ nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches pet parents the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively – all in the safe, familiar environment of your own home.

See remarkable results. 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.

We don't use harmful methods or unnecessary treats. We will guide you to find leadership and develop a relationship with your dog that is grounded in trust and respect. We help you understand the way dogs communicate. We believe in empowering dog owners with simple, effective, time-efficient, and cruelty-free techniques that work alongside a dog's natural instincts. 

We never employ harsh methods, such as shock or prong collars, or use tools like constant treats or clickers. Our dog-friendly methods rely on voice tones and body language to help you communicate with your dog using their language.

As your Bark Busters dog trainers in the Greater Phoenix-Scottsdale area, we want our clients to understand that the gift of leadership and clear communication is what their dog needs most from them.  The kindest thing you can do for your dog is to provide them with their core needs. When this goal is accomplished it makes for a balanced and well-adjusted dog that is void of many of the negative behavioral issues owners experience.

Whether teaching good habits to your new puppy, introducing dog obedience training, or resolving dog behavioral issues, we have decades of experience tackling issues large and small, including:

  • Dog Aggression. Dogs are not born aggressive. Learn why your dog acts aggressively towards food, balls, people or other dogs, and how to change that behavior.
  • Barking. Dogs bark to tell us something. We teach you to 'speak dog' to help you communicate with your dog.
  • Destruction. Destructive behaviors can include chewing shoes, gnawing on furniture, or tearing through the garbage. This behavior can be corrected with our proven training techniques.
  • Digging. Digging is a common behavior for many dogs. Let's get to the root of the behavior problem so you can have a beautiful lawn again! 
  • Jumping. Dogs that jump can be annoying and dangerous. Avoid the embarrassment of having your dog jump on guests with our in-home training.
  • Leash pulling. Enjoy taking your dog for a walk without being pulled! Good leash manners can be taught.
  • Separation anxiety. Does your dog bark or howl when you leave? We want your canine companion to feel comfortable when being left home alone, or just in the other room while you work-from-home.
  • Sibling rivalry. Just like humans, dogs get jealous. Sibling rivalry among dogs can be addressed and corrected with our trusted leadership techniques.
  • Territory marking. Dogs show possession by marking their territory with urine. Prevent unwanted markings in your home and keep your carpets clean and fresh. 
  • Whining. Whining is a form of dog communication. When you learn why your dog whines, you can help your pup to reduce the urge to whine for attention or play.

Phoenix-Scottsdale Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

We started working with Hanna in January for one of our pups (7.5 yrs) who in the month prior started to get aggressive towards our older pup (13 yrs). Luckily it wasn’t to a point where they had to be constantly separated and a couple of days after the first training it was night and day difference in their temperaments! We are seeing a lot of improvements in most of the areas we are focusing on. Some habits are hard to break (like going straight for the couch first thing in the am) but it’s a work in progress. We are so happy we made this investment for our pup and are excited for what the future holds! - (Google Review)
We have had a phenomenal experience with Connor!! In just 2 sessions, we noticed a huge transformation in our Labradoodle. Connor has taught us very practical training tools that we have put into practice daily and it has been so amazing to see fast results. Connor is reliable, friendly, and is always quick to respond. It is worth the investment and reassuring to know that it is a lifetime of support. - (Google Review)
Connor Willey is worth every penny PLUS more! After one training session my husband and I saw a HUGE positive change in our two cavapoos. Connor is giving us the best training advice and guidance that you won’t get off you tube. There is something to be said about in home, personalized training sessions. Each dog is so different and he knows his stuff! We are so grateful we called Bark Busters and have been paired with Connor. He is a must for all dog owners! - (Google Review)
Connor is a miracle worker. Our dog Milo would charge aggressively after every dog he saw and would bark at even the most benign noises at home. After only two appointments, our dog has been completely transformed. Milo walks calmly with my wife and I no matter how many dogs are around. And he barks signficantly less at home. All without shock collars or other cruel techniques. Yes, Bark Busters is crazy expensive. No getting around that. But Connor is absolutely worth every penny and once you pay, he will stick with you and your pup as long as you need. Highly recommend his services to any pup lover - (Google Review)
Connors knowledge was exactly what we were looking for in training our dog. We are so excited for our journey! Bonnie learned to much in just our first visit. Highly recommend 😊 - (Google Review)
Connor and Hanna were the exact solution we needed to get our golden retriever Koa on the right track. They were incredibly professional and were willing to answer our calls anytime we had additional questions. Koa is the best doggo on his walks now and trails runs. - (Google Review)
Connor was INCREDIBLE!! His knowledge and our dogs immediate response to his training was truly eye opening and helpful we would recommend him and his services to everyone who needs help with their pack. - (Google Review)
Our experience with Connor at Bark Busters has been excellent! We rescued our pup and had some challenges with resource guarding and reactivity. Connor’s training methods have allowed us to get those behaviors under control. He has been there to talk us through issues that come up and teach us how to address them. We are very thankful that we chose to do the training and would recommend it to anyone having issues with their dog. - (Google Review)
Our Bark Busters experience with Connor has been wonderful and life changing for our family! Although we have only had a few sessions so far, over the last few months we have had so much more peace and cohesion in our family as a result that we weren’t sure we would have again anytime soon. Our family and sweet dog went through alot of changes in the past couple years with the addition of our son and living in four different houses all during the pandemic where she had less then optimal socializing opportunities. This left her with a lot of anxiety & nervousness, that was coming out in some undesirable behaviors including barking. Through Connor working with us all, we have seen her blossom before our eyes and returning to her sweet, calmer, and more confident self. We no longer have half the worries and stressors with her that we had just a mere couple months ago. We can finally all sit together or play together outside as a family again without worries or all the barking. We still have a ways to go, but now we have tools to communicate effectively with her and resources when we need help figuring out how to navigate situations that may arise that we may not otherwise know how to handle. Thank you so much Connor for your excellent communication skills, follow up, flexibility, patience, and step by step explanations paired with demonstrations! Our holiday season for our family has been so much happier and peaceful thanks to your continuous help! - (Google Review)
Bark Busters has been so incredible for my dachshund puppy Jojo. Hanna has worked miracles with Jojo. She gave such incredible guidance and education and she has equipped me to handle all the puppy craziness. I’m so thankful I stumbled upon Bark Busters and can’t recommend them enough! - (Google Review)
I'm so happy I chose Bark Busters! I needed desperate help training my puppy Guy, a mini Australian Shepherd. I couldn't have guests over, we had problems walking on the leash, uncontrollable barking, an inconsistent eating schedule and more. After just one visit, I had a completely different dog thanks to Connor! Within days, I was able to have guests over without a problem. Connor explained why Guy was behaving the way he was so we were able to better fix our situation. We were given daily exercises that made a huge impact. I didn't realize how much happier we could be with a well behaved dog - Guy is much happier now too! I really appreciate how invested they are in making sure you have the right training specific to your dog and family. Connor helped us identify a lot of issues that I didn't even realize could be fixed! Bark Busters training methods are the best and I'm very thankful for them!
Connor was amazing, very patient and willing to work through all of our issues with our Malti-poo. We never felt rushed when we got together and really felt that Connor had a great understanding of the issues we were dealing with. Our dog loved Connor too, always willing to try whatever he suggested we did. We highly recommend him. - (Google Review)
Bark Busters, specifically Connor, has been life changing for my dog and my family! When we reached out, we couldn't take our dog in public for fear of him aggressing towards other animals or people. I was really impressed with Connor. As he knew our dog might become aggressive, he came right in day one, engaging with him. On apt 1 we were already working on leash training, distance control, managing attention seeking behaviors, and door control. Connor is also very knowledgeable, he simplifies everything, he shows multiple examples and gives in the moment feedback. He always leaves us with step-by-step homework and is always available for any questions we might have. He is also a lot of fun to work with. I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone who is struggling with a dog who engages in problem behaviors! - (Google Review)
I had purchased a new Corgi puppy last year and had some big issues with her that I could not deal with on my own. My vet recommended Bark Busters and I could not be more grateful for how much their training helped me to be able to keep my dog. Their training is kind and helpful...I would highly recommend this company! - (Google Review)
