We had our first training with Kevin and our overly enthusiastic Golden Retriever this week. Without question, it is the most important and encouraging step we’ve taken towards the health, safety and happiness of our dog and ultimately us. Kevin is remarkable in his knowledge, experience, teaching techniques, and patience, as well as being a really nice guy. Can’t recommend him enough. Our only regret is that we didn’t sign up sooner!

Was an amazing training ... Kevin was observing Hana and he was very straight forward!! I have a mini Pomeranian and Pomeranians are super stubborn and bossy lol but Kevin help me and gave instructions how to say NO and how to body language with my puppy! Definitely recomendable Kevin is amazing and super chill ! Don’t expect your dog to fly or miracle to happen :) you really need to spend time with your dog and follow the instructions that Kevin gave you ! Also talk to Kevin about what food you choose to feed your dog ! Thank you Kevin for everything!

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Extra Small (1 - 15 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • Leash pulling • Crate training • House training • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing listed is for a single training session. While significant change will happen in just one lesson, some cases require more. A One-Year or Lifetime package is also available, plus a small add-on special for additional dogs in the household. Please contact for details.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We train in-home and would drive to your place of residence for the lesson. The initial training is 2-3 hours. The first half of the lesson reviews the training methodology and teaches you about the language. The second half of the lesson is typically programming exercises and/or walking practice. We can decide together if additional training would be desired and would schedule ongoing training as needed after that. It is best to have any family members present that also live in the home and care for the dog.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Bark Busters has been in business 30 years, and was started by a couple in Australia who worked with dogs that were scheduled to be put down. They mastered the language and thinking of dogs over the last three decades and have turned their proprietary skill set into a global dog training business. Each territory is owned by a franchisee that undergoes a month-long immersive training program with the founders. This includes education on the language and leadership theories, shelter work and field training. We've completed all training and worked with hundreds of dogs since.
