Basic Dog Training and Obedience

How do you turn a good dog into a great dog?

That’s the question you probably ask whenever your dog misbehaves. These are the moments, for example, when your dog suddenly yanks on the leash or lunges at other animals. Or when you catch them chewing furniture.

Moments like these are frustrating, to be sure. But the trouble goes even deeper than that. For when your dog misbehaves, it also strains the loving relationship you have with them. You still love your dog, yet it’s harder now.

If you’re like most dog owners, you’re not going to sit by and pray that your dog’s behavioural issues go away. No, you’re going to get up and take action.

So what do you do? You try every solution that seems like it could make a difference. No matter how weird. And no matter how absurd.

Sound familiar? If so, you’ve probably tried everything too. Yet none of it’s worked, has it? Your dog still misbehaves and you still feel frustrated.

That’s where we come in.

An early start with dog obedience training and good communication can be the key to success. At Bark Busters, we have proven solutions for your dog’s behavioural issues. Over the last 30 years, we’ve helped owners just like you, turn good dogs into great dogs. Using a customized, one-on-one dog training program, we’ll help your pooch become even more lovable.

Our techniques begin by focusing on your dog’s unique situation. Knowing their situation, we’ll develop a personalized plan that’s dog-friendly and easy for you to follow. We’ll then coach you on how to specifically implement the plan and get the results you’re after.

And, speaking of results, you’re likely to be amazed at the speed with which they come. Our proprietary training system typically leads to dramatic improvements within just the first three-hour session. That means your dog may be better behaved in time for their next walk.

That’s not an exaggeration either. Other dog owners have seen equally astounding results. You can hear about their experiences with Bark Busters in our “Reviews” section.

While our reviews speak for themselves, you might still be wondering why this works. What makes our system more effective, for example, than the methods you’ve seen on YouTube?

It’s simple. We speak dog!

Bark Busters “speaks dog” in the sense that we can communicate more clearly with dogs. Clearer communication is essential so your dog can better understand and knows exactly what they should and shouldn’t do. More often than not, your dog doesn’t want to annoy you. They’re just unclear on what you find frustrating.

This means we can dramatically improve your dog’s behaviour just by helping you communicate better. Teaching you, in other words, to speak dog.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your trainer will start by talking to you about the background, discussing the issues, learning about you (and your family if it applies), and determining your wishes for your dog's behaviour. We will then come up with your training priorities and goals. Then your trainer will teach you the Bark Busters technique. We want you to fully understand the theory behind our approach so you can get the best results going forward. Then we start working with you and your dog. A big part of what we are doing is coaching you on the techniques. We want your dog to be looking to you as the leader and not us. That ensures you get results long after we leave. It also builds your dogs trust in you.

This depends on your dog and your needs. Some people are delighted with the results after one session. Others have more persistent problems and need multiple sessions. In essence you are paying to get the results. It is a flat fee, so if your case is more difficult than most, you don't pay anything extra.
Bark Busters has developed our own proprietary and highly effective method. It is a balanced approach that relies on the same communication system dogs use (yes..we speak dog!) to show them what you want and what you don't want.
Sometimes the case calls for the use of food to build positive associations, however ours is not a treat based reward system. We would like your dog to be motivated by your praise and positive attention. You always have your praise. You don't always have access to food treats.
NO. Pain and fear do not work. Clear communication is our key to getting great results and building a trusting and positive relationship.
