Give your puppy the best start in life

Puppies need guidance in the form of puppy obedience training to learn good manners and develop a pleasant, obedient nature. While it's true that puppies receive much of their socialization from their mothers and littermates in the first 12 weeks of life, as your puppy's pack leader, you will pick up where mother dog left off as primary puppy trainer. Bark Busters trainers offer puppy training in your home. Crate training puppies, house training puppies, and leash training puppies are primary areas in which your puppy will begin his or her education to become a good family member and canine citizen.

Bark Busters Puppy Management and Training Program can be started a few days after your puppy has settled into the new home. The puppy training program gives you a head start and gives you everything you need to successfully train your puppy at home. In addition, the program helps you deal with the many puppy problems that commonly occur in the first six months. The training takes place in your home and the initial lesson takes around two to three hours. Please note: although training will be carried out on the day, puppies can get tired very quickly so some training may only be able to be explained and not demonstrated on the day.
