Severe Behaviour Issues in Dogs
Founded on the premise of rehabilitating shelter dogs, Bark Busters has over 30 years of experience understanding the unique needs, dispositions and sensitivities of canines.
We appreciate that behaviour issues are extremely worrisome and even stressful. Rest assured, our behavioural therapists are committed to you and your pet for as long as it takes to get to the root of the issues and work through the problems. We firmly believe that there is hope for every dog.
What We Can Help With
Dogs are sensitive to their environments and can make associations well after an incident has occurred. We can help alleviate stress by identifying the triggers and providing support in a way they understand.
Our personalized, dog behaviour training programs can address the following:
- Dog separation anxiety
- Aggression or reactivity towards both dogs and/or humans, including resource guarding
- Excessive or intimidating barking
- Nervousness or a lack of confidence around other dogs
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders (dogs are just as prone as humans)
Our Training Sessions
Depending on your needs, we begin with either an in-home or virtual session, where our behaviour therapist will review your environment, current habits and get to know your dog’s demeanour. Based on this information, we will develop a plan centred around communication and focused on positive reinforcement.
Regardless of how long it takes, we will be there to ensure you are equipped with the tools you need to communicate and address issues in a loving and impactful way.
Our Training Methods
Our goal is to help rehabilitate your relationship with your dog and give them the best life possible. We conduct our training in your home, where your dog is in a familiar place. This allows them to have the comfort and confidence needed to focus and learn. It also let’s us develop a customized program that is specific to your dog and both of your needs. We use humane training methods that are centred around positive communication and establishing trust in one another.
