The Best for Dog Training Charlotte, NC, South Mecklenburg County, Union County and York County, SC

Is your dog running your life? Are you somewhere between irritation and desperation?

The solution, quite simply, is not about the obedience, it’s about the relationship. It’s also about empowering owners with simple, effective, time-efficient and cruelty-free techniques which work in tandem with their dog’s natural instincts.

Why home dog training? Dogs learn best when they can focus completely on the owner in an environment that is quiet and free of distractions; and let’s face it, most behavior problems are happening at home! We don’t use harsh techniques or use food to bribe good behavior. We engage dogs to use their minds and communicate with them on a level they understand, using the natural dynamics of pack law. In fact, it’s not unusual for clients to see results with behavior issues in the first 20 minutes! Our guarantee of lifetime support doesn’t just set us apart from the rest… it defines us as the very best there is.

Any Age. Any Breed. Any Issue. We train all dogs… even yours. Call me.

We couldn't be happier with the changes we have seen in our dog immediately following even our first lesson. We have a very good dog, but Christie helped us to address some issues that were causing stress for us and for our dog. I thought they were just normal things that you had to deal with when having a dog, but amazingly now having people come to the door and come into our house is not a stressful experience because she no longer barks at and jumps all over everyone. She is so much calmer and seems so much happier in general which makes everything more peaceful and makes boundaries easier to set. Christie was extremely helpful in working with us to achieve exactly what works best for our family and we saw immediate changes in our dog that we never knew were possible. She addressed all of our questions and concerns and has been there for us whenever we need. We are so thrilled that we called Bark Busters and wish we hadn't waited so long- everyone is amazed at the dramatic changes!

Christie is amazing!! I have a 5 yr old mixed breed (Isabelle) and a 2 yr old pit bull rescue (Allen). My pit bull was extremely traumatized when he came to my home a year ago. He was obviously abused and had been in fights. He is highly dog aggressive outside my home. Isabelle is extremely bossy inside the home. This was a recipe for disaster. I contacted Christie after Isabelle picked a fight with Allen and almost paid the ultimate price. I had tried other training programs with minimal success. I referred to walks with my dogs as "running the gauntlet". If we came across another dog, child on a bike, UPS man, etc, Allen would attempt to attack. It was a nightmare. He couldn't leave the house without being muzzled. Allen suffers from severe separation anxiety and has to be on medication. I had committed to Allen to get this right and I finally did with Christie. Christie is training me to be in control of my dogs. My dogs feel secure and I am confident as a leader. Allen's anxiety has lessened and my home is much more relaxed and peaceful. Amazing success!!
