Bark Busters’ mission is to promote clear and open communication between owners and their dogs using simple and effective training methods that appeal to the way dogs act and think.
Bark Busters therapists use techniques to encourage the dog to use his brain and, at the same time, to satisfy the dog’s need for pack leadership. In the wild, dogs have a pecking order determined by their dominance in the group. When dogs perceive themselves to be higher up the pecking order than the owner(s), it usually results in a dysfunctional pack. The result can be stressful for both owner and dog.
Bark Busters behavioural therapists put the owners back in control. We coach using quick and easy to learn methods that the dog will respond to.
Our behavioural therapists go to the owners home. This is where the dog spends in excess of 90% of his time, where he is most relaxed and open to learning. We teach the owners how to train their dog through effective use of voice tones and body language.
Of course, where owners are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
We are committed to solving your dog’s behavioural problems. We charge a one-time fee that covers as many sessions as required to get the problems under control. The first session will take about 2-3 hours, and you will be required to practice for 10-15 minutes each day for 4-5 weeks. This will reinforce your dog’s newly learned behaviour. Our ‘Gold Class’ training comes with our Lifetime Written Guarantee.
