Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
Why Bark Busters?
Our methods focus on creating a positive relationship between you and your dog to improve your dog’s behaviour and obedience. Our expertise is in understanding how a dog naturally thinks, learns and communicates and then using this to show you how to be your dog’s leader.
