Home dog training is ideal for:

  • Solving dog behavioural issues such as aggression towards people or other animals.

  • Curing embarrassing and annoying habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching and whining at the back door.

  • Creating an obedient dog or puppy that will sit or stay on command, come immediately when called, and happily walk on lead without tugging.

  • Setting boundaries for no go zones for your dog.

  • Reducing separation anxiety stress without the need for sedatives or drugs.

Why do we train in your home?

Your dog lives with your family, in your home. This is where they misbehave most often, so this is where dog behaviour training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If they do not listen at home, then they will not listen outside your territory.

Bark Buster trainers conduct the one-on-one training in your home, without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for dog obedience training at a kennel. After learning in your home, our behavioural therapist and trainer will work with you as needed outside and around real distractions, once you and your dog are ready.

Humane, non-physical, natural dog training approach.

All dogs are not the same, so we vary our approach based on each dog’s personality and temperament and what will work for that dog. We also vary the dog behaviour training to suit the family’s specific needs and lifestyle, the dog’s environment and what YOU do or do not want from your dog.

Our positive dog training methods are pain-free, treat-free, and clicker-free. We DO NOT use shock collars, spray collars or pronged collars. We will teach you a system of communication your dog already knows, based on canine communication and pack behaviour. You will learn how to use your body language and voice tones to get your dog to focus and respect you. You can learn to teach your dog behaviours that are and are not acceptable, both on and off lead, at your home, at the park or virtually anywhere.

What is included in Bark Busters Home Dog Training?

Bark Busters trainers are committed to solving your dog’s behavioural issues. We charge a one-time fee on your initial lesson which also covers you and your dog for follow-up visits until you achieve your goals with your dog. We are there for you and will return if new problems arise or old ones resurface.

The first dog training session will take about 2 to 3 hours. Following the first session, you will continue to build the right relationship between you and your dog by practising for 10-15 minutes a day. This will reinforce your dog’s newly learned behaviour.

“We are so grateful to have met Keiko – She has explained to us in simple terms how to best handle our new puppy Roxy so that we start our new life together without frustration, as I am sure it happens all the time with a new dog. We just had the first lesson and we can already see a change in her behaviour. Looking forward to continuing with the program.”

“The followup session was very helpful. Keiko acknowledged the work we had done so far and made a plan for the coming weeks for us. Her practical tips make it easier to achieve goals. She has got a wealth of knowledge and offers help in area required. ”
