Puppy training - like you've never seen it!
When it comes to puppy training, Bark Busters definitely leads the pack.
Unlike other services, we'll be there for your puppy during the crucial first years. We want to see you and your puppy develop a solid and trusting relationship. And, over time, we want your dog to become a beloved part of your life and your family.
In working with you, we'll be using a time-tested process. We begin with an introductory session. During that time, we'll determine what expectations you have for your puppy. Do you expect your pup, for example, to stay off the furniture? If so, this is exactly the kind of expectation we need to get clear on at the beginning, in order to design the most effective training program possible.
Once we've heard your expectations, we'll then work with you to develop the training program. We'll also give you practical advice on issues that frustrate most owners - toilet training, play biting, jumping, and more.
As your dog gets older and their attention span increases, we can cover more complex issues. These issues include not pulling on the leash and avoiding distractions like squirrels.
From there, our training program can get even more customized. Having laid the basic framework, we'll be in a position to help you change nearly any other frustrating behaviours your dog has.
We'll also be able to help you should anything unexpected come up. If, for instance, your dog starts barking at guests or doesn't adjust well to a new baby in the family; you can count on us. We'll be there for you. Just give us a call and we'll arrange an appointment to come out and help you.
In this case, you can relax knowing we're not starting from scratch. Instead, we're building on the training we've already done with your dog. This means that, based on our experiences, new issues can usually be resolved in less than a few hours.

Frequently asked questions
Can you imagine trying to teach a children's kindergarten class the alphabet during recess? Group sessions are fun, and it is great to let pups socialise (but only in a very controlled way), but it is a really difficult environment to expect a puppy to learn. Also, issues that you are running into at home are best dealt with at home. Your trainer can answer your specific questions as they relate to your specific needs. 100% of your lesson time is focused is on you and your dog. That means you get better results in a much shorter time.
We are able to get very quick results in the first session with concerns like:
- Crate training
- Puppy toilet training
- Excessive barking
- Early separation anxiety
- Stopping play biting and mouthing
- Stopping jumping up
...and many more.
Cost depends on your dog, the issues, and our location. Typically the service ranges from $695 to $895. For an accurate quote, speak to your local Bark Busters office at 1-866-418-4584 or email us requesting a call back
This depends on your dog and your needs. Typically, 2-4 visits are what is required to get the results you want, but some dogs are special and need more attention. If that is the case, there is no extra cost. It is a flat fee.
It does depend on the dog and on how consistent you are. Issues like play biting and jumping up typically are dealt with in the first session and are completely gone within a week.
Bark Busters has developed our own proprietary and highly effective method. It is a balanced approach that relies on the same communication system dogs use (yes... we speak dog!) to show them what you want and what you don't want.
Sometimes the case calls for the use of food to build positive associations, however ours is not a treat based reward system. We would like your dog to be motivated by your praise and positive attention. You always have your praise. You don't always have access to food treats.
NO. Pain and fear do not work. Clear communication is our key to getting great results and building a trusting and positive relationship.
