DOG TRAINING SERVICES
Bark Busters Mid-Maryland
I am a Master Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist. My experience working with several hundreds of dogs will help me help you become the family leader your dog needs and deserves. By using my dog-friendly, non-food based techniques (no shock collars or harsh methods ever!), I can help you live a happier life together with your dog.
My goal is for your dog to love and respect you. I can help you with dog training and puppy training needs for dogs of ANY BREED. ANY AGE. ANY ISSUE.
I can help you with your new puppy, an adult dog that you’ve had for years, or getting a newly adopted dog of any age to settle nicely into your home. You’ll be amazed at what your dog will be able to do once you learn to communicate with your canine companion in a way your dog understands.
Don’t just take my word for it, please take a moment to read some of my client reviews – all from real clients with true stories.
My training parter, Jodie, and I (learn more about Jodie below!) help clients throughout Greater Anne Arundel County and Prince Georges County and we look forward to working with you!
Our Dog Training & Puppy Training Services
Personalized Programs: We come to you! Your home, yard, and neighborhood are where most of your dog’s behavior issues occur. Therefore, it’s best to start your dog training in these locations. When needed, we can move on to more populated environments such as walking your dog calmly through town on a busy weekend afternoon!
We will effectively address any issue you may have including: aggression, housebreaking, jumping on visitors, separation anxiety, nuisance barking, getting into the garbage can, demanding attention or bothering family members and guests, fighting between dogs in the same home, separation anxiety, walking on leash, and much more.
Expensive “boot camps” or sleep away training are not effective in my opinion because your dog needs to respect and listen to YOU in YOUR HOME, not a trainer at some facility. Besides, wouldn’t you rather be a part of shaping your dog’s behavior to the way you want it to be? We develop a personalized one-on-one program for you and your family based on your dog’s particular personality and perspective, and your goals.
Positive Dog Training: No shock collars, choke collars, pinning, intimidation or clickers. Unlike some trainers, we never use harsh techniques or bribe with food to extort good dog behavior.
Results: For most of our clients, by the end of our first session, you will have a completely different dog. Transformations can be incredible.
Speak Dog: Rather than teach your dog English, we will teach you to communicate using the language your dog already understands. You will learn how to use your body language and voice tones to get your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. It’s really amazing for both you and your dog when you can finally understand what each other wants.
New Adoption: Adoption has been at an all-time high, which is great! Our goal is help these newly adopted dogs stay in their forever homes! We have helped countless families welcome their newly adopted puppy or adult dog into their home. Not all dogs, unfortunately, have had the best experiences before you adopt them. We will help your new canine family member adjust to your home and establish that calm, balanced, environment that you both desire.
We can help you with all your dog behavior issues and needs, including:
- Attention seeking
- Basic obedience (come, sit, stay, leave it, dro it, fetch, etc.)
- Focus and listening
- Improving confidence
- Leash pulling
- Not rushing the door, vistors or kids
- Preparing for a new baby or a change of address
- Respecting cats or other pets
- Running away
- Separation anxiety
- Sibling rivalry – tensions/fights with other dogs in the household
- Socializing with other dogs
- And much more!
