Barbara and John Fassett, your local dog trainers

Best Dog Training Poughkeepsie NY and surrounding areas, Dutchess County

"Chole is already learning to sit and stay for as long as I asked for, which she has never done before - that was within the first half hour! I've tried everything from vibration to shock collars, and I really hate using them. I like the idea of a "pack" and going back to their instincts to learn. The change in just the first day was amazing. I can't wait to see what else we can accomplish."
-Juliana K.  20th June 2013

Here’s What You Can Expect from Our Dutchess County Dog Training

  • Home Dog Training. We will come into your home for private dog training lessons. Your home is the most comfortable place for your dog and often where most of the bad behaviors occur. Free of unusual distractions, your dog will quickly learn to follow your house rules when it comes to housebreaking, barking, and leash pulling! Then we’ll go outside and I’ll help you safely and positively achieve socialization with other dogs and people in public settings avoiding or reversing aggression, fear and low confidence.
  • Positive Reinforcement. Our first dog training session will take approximately 3 hours. The Bark Busters system is a positive, non-physical (no choke, pinch, prong or shock collars) natural approach (no clickers) to dog behavior modification based on understanding and clear communication. Every dog is an individual with their own personalities, temperaments and experiences. We tailor the solution to fit the circumstances. Follow up sessions are conducted to address any lingering problems. You’ll be amazed at the results after only one lesson!
  • Effective Communication. Dogs can’t speak English, so it’s no wonder they can’t understand our verbal commands. We will teach you how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands. You will learn how to use your body language and vocal communication to get your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. By reinforcing our dog training techniques 20 minutes/day, you will soon have a well-mannered and obedient dog.
  • No limitations. We will help you train any dog, any age, any breed. Together, we will make sure you have a well-behaved dog … guaranteed!
  • Life of the Dog Guarantee. Our Life-Of-The-Dog Guarantee goes wherever you and your dog go! Bark Busters is the only company with National Support & Unlimited Training. This guarantee is automatically transferred. It stays with your dog even if you move - or- if your dog is re-housed!
