Give Your Puppy a Great Start!
Puppies need guidance to learn good manners and develop a pleasant nature – after all, they are very similar to infants and toddlers. That’s where you come in! While it’s true that puppies receive much of their socialization from their mothers and litter-mates in the first 12 weeks of life, you will pick up where the mother left off in teaching and reinforcing proper behavior.
Bark Busters trainers offer puppy training in your home. We help build a basic foundation of trust and respect in a safe and nurturing environment, including crate training, potty training, and leash training your puppy.

Puppy Training Tips & Advice
Choosing Your Breed
As dog trainers, we receive all sorts of inquiries from future pet parents about the best breed for them and their families. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer – a lot depends on your desires, needs, and lifestyle.
Protect Your Pup
Dogs are naturally curious creatures. But their inquisitive nature can sometimes lead to trouble: common items inside and outside of the home can be life-threatening if ingested. Avoid unwanted trouble and keep your inquisitive pooch safe with this handy list of potential poisons.
Toilet Training Basics
There’s no way around it: toilet training is vital for pet owners and dogs. Establishing a toilet training routine with puppies (usually at around three months old) requires time, effort, and consistency to yield results, but the benefits are well worth it.
Don't just take our word for it.
