TRAINING SERVICES

WESTERN MONTGOMERY COUNTY AND NORTHERN CHESTER COUNTY

I have been an avid dog lover and owner my entire life and wanted to share that passion with other people. When I was given the opportunity to work with dogs and their families I jumped at it. I’m happy I found a career in which I can help other people enjoy the dogs in their lives. Prior to joining Bark Busters I worked as an advertising and marketing manager for national and international corporations.

As a certified Bark Busters behavioral therapist and master trainer, I will assess each situation and customize the training to address the issues that are important to you and to the needs of your dog. I will teach you a system of communication that your dog already knows. You will learn how to use your body language and vocal communication to get your dog to respect and focus on you. This will insure that YOU are earning the dog’s respect, not me. All this takes is a personal commitment of 20 minutes a day for 5 weeks. If you are consistent, the behavioral changes will be permanent. But, should you ever regress, you can call for a FREE refresher at any time. I leave you with written life of the dog guarantee. Look to me as your lifelong coach.

In-Home Training: I come to your home, where most dogs’ issues occur. I start in the home but all outdoor training is included too. Being in a familiar environment where there is nothing competing for your dog’s attention enables us to address the issues more directly.

Personalized Dog Training Programs:  I develop a personalized one-on-one program for you based on your dog’s particular personality, perspective and your goals. You will learn how to read your dog’s reactions and adjust your communication as needed depending on how your dog is responding.

There is a ton of free information out there, but every dog is different, and not everything you read is right or right for your dog. You really do need a professional to come in and analyze the situation and guide you.  I love that she’s always there for us if we have concerns or need to alter something. Especially since now Jeri knows us, knows our dogs and what we’ve been through. No other trainer will ever know my dogs as well as Jeri. And I have to say I love the fact that it’s one flat payment up front, and now I have the peace of mind that Jeri will always be there for us for the lives of our dogs. That alone is 100% worth the financial investment. I’ve spent so much money on toys, grooming and vet visits–in comparison, this was a fraction of the cost and just as important (if not more important) to keep my babies happy and healthy.” – Catherine C.,

Positive Dog Training: No shock collars, choke collars, pinning, intimidation or clickers. Unlike some trainers, I never use harsh techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior. Our dog training focuses on using dogs’ natural instincts to work toward a win-win situation for you and your dog. Trust, clear communication and understanding produce longer lasting results than treat training or force.

“We really like the fact that no treats are used for training.  The training process is working well and the dogs have responded especially well to the techniques used to stop barking and bounding to the door when the bell rings.  Also getting great response to the general commands as well as correctional commands/process.  Still working on our leash walking – coming a bit slower but we all are committed.  I’ve used other training programs and by far this is the best!  I’ve already referred a few friends.” – Karen A.

Group Obedience Class: I offer a 4-week group class that follows the same methodology as the In-Home training. Group classes are designed for dogs that are friendly to other dogs and people but need basic manners. Group classes are not designed for dogs that have shown aggression or very intense reactions toward people or other dogs. As a certified Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator, I can assess and test your dog in a group setting.

Packages

Lifetime Support Guarantee

Lifetime Support Guarantee

The Bark Busters worldwide dog behaviour training support guarantee is unique in the industry. It is designed to help owners resolve their dog behaviour issues and dog obedience issues and to provide our customers with ongoing peace of mind. It provides for the following:

  • Written: Clients receive a written, signed copy of the dog training guarantee on their Bark Busters receipt which is an official Bark Busters Australia document and outlines all the training methods which must be adopted to resolve your dog’s behaviour problems.
  • Backed Up: The Bark Busters guarantee is backed up by the world’s largest dog training company. Copies of all guarantee receipts are retained at Bark Busters’ Australia & New Zealand Head Office.
  • Service Guarantee: The Bark Busters guarantee simply states that if the owner continues to carry out all of the training instructions provided by the therapist at the training lessons, the Bark Busters therapist will continue to work with the owner, to achieve the desired results, for either one year, or the life of the dog (depending on the service obtained) at no additional charge. Most clients prefer the lifetime support guarantee because they receive peace of mind for very little additional cost.
  • All Problems Covered: The guarantee provides for ongoing, free assistance no matter if the same problems recur, or if new problems arise. There is never an additional charge when your trainer returns, except for transportation costs if agreed in advance in certain areas falling outside the geographical area covered by your trainer.
  • Guarantee Moves With The Dog: If for any reason the dog needs to be re-homed, the remaining term of the guarantee passes to the new owner for a nominal fee. In the case of the lifetime support guarantee, the new owner will be trained and will receive the benefits of the guarantee for the life of the dog. The one-year guarantee applies if the re-housing is done within the first year. Clients can upgrade to the lifetime support guarantee for an additional charge.
  • Guarantee Moves With The Owner: If the owner moves to another location, the guarantee continues to be valid, either for the life of the dog, or one year from the date of the first lesson, depending on the service. If there is a Bark Busters therapist reasonably close by, services will be provided at no charge. If a trainer is not close by, Bark Busters will provide assistance by phone and email. People who move to parts of the world where Bark Busters has offices, ongoing assistance is also covered at no additional charge.
  • Limitations of Cover: The guarantee may not be transferred to another dog. The guarantee is not a money back guarantee. If the dog is euthanised or the dog dies the guarantee is rendered null and void. All training advice must be adopted by the owner in order for the guarantee to remain valid. If the owner adopts an alternative form of training without prior discussion with their therapist this will render the guarantee null and void.
  • Over 27 Years of History: Bark Busters has grown to be the largest dog training company in the world, with over 1 million dogs trained. The guarantee has been part of the company since 1989 when company founders, Danny and Sylvia Wilson, decided that it would help to significantly reduce the number of dogs that were being euthanised and provide customers peace of mind for many years. The company is expanding rapidly internationally and can be counted upon to fully honour its guarantee.
