Home Dog Training Greater Tallahassee

Is your dog's bad behavior causing you and your family stress in your home? Are you struggling with your new puppy's behavior and puppy training issues such as chewing, nipping, and potty training? Does your dog pull and lunge when on walks?

I understand, and Bark Busters Home Dog Training is here to help you! Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training, helping over 1 million families and their dogs for more than 30 years! 

At Bark Busters, we help solve miscommunication between dogs and human owners, which is typically at the root of many dog behavioral issues. How? We teach everyone to speak in the same language – dog!  

Dogs learn to communicate with each other at birth, from their mother and siblings. When you bring your new canine companion into your human home, at any age, often poor communication is at the root of most dog behavior issues. Learn how to communicate with your dog in a language they understand using our proven dog training methods.

Our dog training methodology is built on leadership, trust, and respect. I teach you the same natural communication methods that dogs instinctively understand – all in the safe, familiar environment of your home, where dogs learn best. When prioritizing clear communication and leadership, we can address dog behaviors in the location they occur most often. This means longer-lasting and faster solutions for you and your dog.

Leigh Ann’s knowledge is so helpful! She answered all of our questions and showed us methods of how to communicate correctly with our dog. She is so patient and kind! Everything we learned from her has been so helpful! We are looking forward to our training exercises with our dog, thanks to all the tools she has given us. She explained everything in a simple way and provides excellent examples.
Learned a lot. A great experience. Leigh Ann was very patient with all the barking she was dealing with.
Leigh Ann has already performed miracles. She worked with us and Frannie to get a collar and leash on her.
My experience with Leigh Ann could not have been better. I am very optimistic about the progress we will make and I know I can always teach out.
Leigh Ann was amazing. She explained to me what was happening with my dog (Mayhem) who is having aggression issues and told me her plan to change how I communicate with him. Then she showed me what exercises I need to practice daily with him to regain control. Then we went outside and she took me through step by step how to do everything. It's only been 24 hours, but he is really taking to it. I'm very excited to see how he does between now and our next session. Also she gave me great tips on how to start training my puppy (Moonshine), and help with things like nipping and potty training. Looking forward to working with Leigh Ann more.
I had the pleasure of working with Leigh from Bark Busters and was beyond amazed at how quickly she was able to turn our protective, very aggressive, dog into a respectable little citizen. We aren’t done yet, but the progress that was made in one lesson was worth every penny.
We are excited to have an opportunity to help Lily become the best she can be. We learned so many helps the first visit. Thank you, Leigh Ann
Leigh Ann was so great in helping with both of our dogs. She is very confident and professional and I love her strategies of working with the dogs. I feel very comfortable using her as the trainer for my dogs because she has experience with dogs that have the same issues as mine have. After consulting other training options in the area, Bark Busters is ultimately the best option for an affordable, reliable, and helpful training service. I also appreciate how the focus is on building the relationship between the dogs and I.
Love!!! Absolutely love the training. Leigh Ann was amazing. Very professional very knowledgeable and very personable. Jack responded well to all the techniques. Looking forward to our next session.
Bark Busters is the miracle we needed for our girl, Juno. Leigh Ann is fabulous at making sure we all know what to do, and we saw amazing results after just the first session! We are all living in harmony now. Thank you!
I want to say how amazing Leigh Ann was yesterday in our first training session. I learned a lot and feel more prepared to properly interact with Madi.. I saw so much improvement the very first visit. The second day has been exceptional. I would highly recommend Leigh Ann and Bark Busters.
Enjoyed our time with Leigh Ann and my husband and I both feel encouraged that we will be able to gain control of the two dogs.
Leigh Ann was wonderful. She was very thorough and professional. She was fun to work with and Jackson related so positively to her. She gave great instructions and tips for successful continued training. I look forward to working with her.
Worth of every penny! Thank you for helping us!
Our first session went great! Leigh Ann was so patient listening as I explained my dogs’ bad behavior. She took the time for us to work with each dog individually and I could see a difference already. I’m so excited to continue working with Leigh Ann! I can’t wait for our next session so I can see what else my doggos will learn. I know I made the right choice by choosing Bark Busters and Leigh Ann.
So grateful i decided to do this.
Leigh Ann gave us just the help we needed. Our new rescue is high energy and young and we needed help in managing his behavior and excitement. Leigh Ann is very knowledgeable and she gave us very practical tips and techniques to manage Pepper. The support materials she provides is right on target. We highly recommend her and the Bark Busters system. Pepper is responding very well.
So very glad I'm doing this! My boys are better behaved after just the first session. Leigh Ann just ROCKS!
Leigh Ann was very helpful in teaching us simple techniques to manage behavioral problems. We saw success immediately and are working to reinforce and build on this.

It’s reassuring that she is available for questions and help as needed. Very pleased with service!
We felt very positive about our time with Leigh Ann. We understood her instructions, and the thought process behind it. With her expertise in reading a dogs' body language, we understand Winnie better now.
Leigh Ann is amazing. Our dog was very hyper - liked to jump on everyone. After the first session we can see a big difference in how Scarlett interacts with my daughter and myself. Scarlett is much better at not jumping every time someone walks into the room. I was ready to give up on our dog but now I would not trade her for anything.
I reached out to Leigh-Ann because I was totally overwhelmed by my 4 year old Great Pyrenees' separation anxiety. Leigh-Ann is incredible. As soon as she entered our space, she helped me understand Zoe's behavior, establish myself as the leader in our home, and set some clear boundaries. The very next day I noticed a huge difference in Zoe's anxiety levels. She is consistently recalling, staying, and respecting the leash when we walk. With Leigh-Ann's guidance, we're still working up to longer absences, but Zoe is handling separation much better – no more destructive behavior or escape attempts. Leigh-Ann is a pleasure to work with. She provides clear instructions and expectations. I especially appreciate the emphasis on verbal commands and correction (no use of treats for reinforcement). If your pup is struggling with separation anxiety and you're feeling overwhelmed, know that there's hope! Our home is so much happier and our communication so much stronger since working with Leigh-Ann.
I contacted Leigh Ann as she came VERY highly recommended by our vet's office. Our hound mix, Parker, had pretty suddenly started having some aggression issues. Leigh Ann pointed out to me the things that I was doing that was not necessarily causing the aggression, but was passively enabling it. During our first appt, Leigh Ann taught me how to change MY behavior so that Parker could be a more relaxed dog, which in turn, I expect to curb the aggression issues. I'm shocked at the changes I saw in Parker in just 1 visit and I can't wait to work with Leigh Ann further.
Great first lesson. Leigh Ann was kind & answered our questions. Gave us good tips to work with.
