The Best for Dog Training Lexington, Central KY, Fayette, Jessamine & Woodford Counties!

All of my life, Sunday dinners and holidays at my grandparent's house, included not only a house full of relatives but all of our dogs!  To us that was normal!  So, my love for them started before I can even remember.

I never imagined that one day I would have the opportunity to become part of the world's largest dog training company and help owners and their pets have happy, balanced lives together!  I love the Bark Buster training system because we understand that nobody can train a dog better than a dog.  Therefore, we study them and leverage the communication system and social structure that is hard wired in to their DNA and how their mama teaches them from day one.  It's very organic and makes so much more sense than forcing them to adapt to a humanized method such as clickers, treat training, pinch collars or physical methods.

They are master communicators and a very conflict resolving species, so once we educate our owners on how to think, act and speak canine, it's amazing how quickly they start to understand what we want and before long says, "Right...I can do that!"  I always say it's really Bark Busters in home "owner" training because we educate owners on how to effectively educate their pet and put owners back in control.  It's a pleasure to have a career where I get to see the look of joy and relief on the owner's faces and the look of a relaxed dog that feels the security of their owner being in control.

Who trains whom? As an owner, you have probably realized that canines are very good people trainers; and boy, do we train easily! Even puppies learn very quickly how to get us to respond to them. Before you know it, we are organizing our lives around our furry family members, responding to their demands and compensating for their naughty behavior problems. Hmmm...sound familiar? ...

Local dog trainer for Lexington, Kentucky

Personalized: We come to your home where the behavior problems exist and where you and your dog will learn the best and retain the most. We also develop a personalized program based on the temperament and issues as well as your home environment. It's not a one-size fits all approach, and we do not use harsh measures such as shock collars. In addition to your in-home training, you will receive six weeks of online education and support and subsequent monthly educational newsletters.

What is dog psychology and leadership all about? When we start communicating in their language, they start to understand us straight away and begin seeing us as a leader. It's fun to learn to "think, speak and act dog." Canines are less stressed and learn quickly when they understand that they don't have to control their owners, and owners are less stressed and learn eagerly when they regain control of their household. We use only positive, effective techniques and non-physical behavior methods.

What do canines need? Like children, they deserve and require education so they can develop proper social skills. They need their owners to be calm, assertive and consistent leaders so they can feel balanced and understand their place in the home.

Any dog: Because they all speak the same language, our training system works for ANY dog, ANY age, ANY issue! Puppies and their owners can start off on the right paw, eliminating behavior issues before they even start, and old dogs CAN learn new tricks.

If your dog is currently in a self-appointed leadership position or campaigning for the job of leader and you would like help in quickly turning that around, Bark Busters Central Kentucky is the system for you.
