“I was at my wit’s end! I rescued a bull dog named Barney who was very aggressive with me and other dogs and barked uncontrollably. The first dog trainer told me to send him back to the shelter. The second trainer used a shock collar and Barney was so afraid he shook for hours afterward. Finally, I hired Harvey and he turned Barney and I completely around in the way we were relating to each other. Once Barney knew I was in charge, he relaxed and was no longer a “bully”. Cindy H 

Let me end the struggling and stress for you and help you have a well-behaved family companion.

About Bark Busters
The Bark Busters’ methods have been fine-tuned over 30 years to teach dog owners how to effectively communicate (speak dog) with their pets and become the leader in every aspect of a dog’s life. I teach my clients how to be the “leader of the pack” by educating and coaching them on time tested training methods. When I work with you, I’ll teach you how to correct unwanted behaviors and communicate with your dog by using only body language and voice tones which is essentially how dogs communicate with each other. (It’s really an amazing and proven technique!)

I will come to your home for a 2 – 3 hour training session that will address the specific issues you are having with your dog. I don’t use a cookie cutter training system like many group classes that cater to the “average” dog. Instead, our lessons are private and occur in the dog’s “den” where I can observe its behavior and keep him/her focused.

Many of my clients come to me after other types of dog training methods have failed. (Don’t give up on your dog without working with me first.) Busters Home Dog trainers have saved over 2 Million dogs across 300 trainers around the world that would have been given up or put to sleep without our training system.

I can help you with:

  • Adjusting to a move
  • Aggression
  • Attention demanding
  • Barking incessantly
  • Begging for food
  • Biting
  • Chewing
  • Digging
  • Door manners
  • Focus & listening
  • Housebreaking
  • Leash pulling
  • Marking
  • Preparing for a new baby
  • Running away
  • Separation anxiety
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Respecting cats or other pets
  • And much more!

The Results
You’ll see immediate results during your first lesson. Your dog’s bad behaviors will be transformed, and with a little daily practice, you’ll have the well-behaved dog you want.

I have seen dogs that bite and growl at each other before training become the best of friends after training. I have witnessed dogs that practically maul you at the door learn to sit quietly when the doorbell rings. I even trained a dog who pulled their owner on leash like a rag doll learn to walk side-by-side when their training session was over.

The changes I have witnessed with dogs trained on the Bark Busters system have been instantaneous and profound which is why I do what I do. I am passionate about dogs and I love to see the amazement on their pet parent’s faces when they realize the lifelong positive impact this training has for their beloved pet
