What Differentiates Bark Busters Las Vegas We train dog owners not dogs. The problem is not with you or your dog. It is about how you communicate with each other. When you issue a command to your dog, he doesn’t understand what you are saying. Once we teach you to communicate with your dog using voice tones and body language, your dog will be well behaved. You will establish your place in the pack – as the “Top Dog”, and your dog will gladly relinquish control to you, knowing that you will keep him safe. “After 3 hours our 2 Coton De Tulears were responsive to the new training and barking at the front door is a thing of the past. Our evening walks are now enjoyable using the new collars and leashes they gave us. The tools and techniques are beyond simple yet so powerful.” Julietta F. You will see immediate results. By the time we leave our first training session, you will see remarkable changes in your dog. Reinforcing the techniques 10 – 15 minutes a day will allow your relationship with your dog to grow and change. The dog training is easy and fun! “We were amazed how in just one day there was a noticeable difference in both of our dogs.” Christina R We use only humane, positive methods. Treat training is not the way to train your dog. You don’t see mama dogs walking around with their treat pouch on dishing out food to educate their pups. Treats can be used as a reward from time to time, but once the treats stop coming so, too, will your dog’s good behaviors. Additionally, negative reinforcement such as shock collars, prong collars or punishment can result in a more aggressive dog. “I was very impressed that treats or "punishment" are not used.” Janet B “During the first lesson Lisette helped us be consistent and in charge with verbal correction. No treats or harsh tools involved.” Julie B Our dog training methods can be applied to any dog, any age, any size. Because all dogs speak the same language, our dog training system works for ANY dog, ANY age, ANY issue! Even old dogs CAN learn new tricks. Rescue dogs, shelter dogs, puppies and senior dogs … we love them all. “All I can say is these folks are the real deal! We have a pitbull who was born blind and we didn't know how to communicate with him. He's a wonderfully behaved dog but we just didn't know how to teach him things like going downstairs. They came in and showed us so many great ideas and gave us homework to do and we are beyond excited that we found them.” Tieia We often get called in by other dog trainers who can’t tackle the tough issues such as aggression. “I rescued a French bull dog almost a year ago. She is the sweetest dog ever … except when it came to other dogs. Zoe, our seven-year-old pooch lived in a home with a very aggressive mini pit and he bullied her constantly. When I try to walk her she goes after any other dog. Derek and Lissette came over last night and it was AMAZING. They taught me techniques that were so doable with zero aggression or anger and not treats but a lot of praise. I feel like I have hope for my dog, which makes me so happy.” Rachel L. Together, Bark Busters Las Vegas will help you overcome ANY issue, any breed, any age: Canine Leadership Communication Aggression – food, dog to dog, dog to human Biting – Nipping – Rough Play Rushing the front door Stealing, Counter Surfing Child safety Jumping House training New Baby – Preparing and Introducing Multiple dogs in household Sibling Rivalry Barking Obsessive compulsive behaviors Pool safety Puppy issues Separation anxiety Digging Traveling with your dog Leash walking Community Service We are passionate about giving back to the community, helping rescues organizations and shelters whose dogs have behavioral issues such as aggression and separation anxiety. We work with Home 4 Spot, the Henderson Animal Shelter, Wagging Tails Rescue and The American Dog Project (Puerto Rico Dog Rescue Effort) and help to place homeless dogs who have been abandoned by natural disasters. For Derek and Lissette Anovick animal welfare of all living creatures with a specific focus on dogs has been a passion throughout their entire life. They make an impact on people’s lives on a daily basis by rehabilitating dogs and teaching owners how to effectively communicate with their canine counterpart and be the pack leader. Lissette’s passion for dogs stems from her early childhood having been raised with multiple dogs ranging from teacup Pomeranians to large German Shepard’s (street rescued dogs to pure breeds). She ended up rescuing dogs from euthanasia by always adopting from local shelters. Her knowledge and understanding of dogs stems from her innate ability to “speak dog” dating back to her early childhood days. Everyone in the neighborhood would ask Lissette for assistance with any training or behavioral issues since she was so in tune with animals since the age of 5. Lissette went on to build a career in health and wellness as a health coach and personal trainer, aiding people in their need to cure diseases and ailments through proper diet and nutrition. She treats the root of the problem and not the symptom. Her wealth of diet and nutrition knowledge carries over to animals as well since food sources for dogs are as equally poor in nutrients as their human counterparts. Her training in this field carries over to the animal world quite well allowing her to assist dog owners that are willing and open for nutritional guidance and assistance. It’s a match made in heaven for Lissette to do what she truly loves on a daily basis thanks to the Bark Buster philosophy of assisting as many dogs and dog owners as possible world-wide. Derek’s story is a bit different as he grew up with dog and cat related asthma allergies and had to limit exposure to all animals as a result. He always loved being around animals but his health condition would not allow him to do so. At the age of 32, he decided to go out on a limb and adopt his first dog with the hopes that his asthma would subside eventually. Although he suffered for the first few months, he was able to build up enough antibodies in his system naturally to become immune to dog dander with no side effects and not needing to partake in allergy treatments. He went on to adopt 2 more additional dogs over the next few years. After that he felt comfortable being able to finally express his passion and love towards all breeds after having overcome the asthma issue. He made annual trips to the island of Puerto Rico several times a year for many years, dedicating most of his time to animal welfare assistance and feeding hungry street dogs in need. After a 20 year career in marketing and advertising. Derek finally had the opportunity to transition into behavioral dog training full-time with Bark Busters when the opportunity presented itself. He is now a mater trainer along with Lissette and loving every minute of it. If you live in the Las Vegas area, the Anovick’s can help you have the well-behaved family pet you have always wanted! Call us today so we can get started helping you and your dog. What we hear most often from dog owners: “We wish we had called sooner.” Don’t hesitate.

Why do we train in your home?

Your dog lives with your family, in your home. This is where he misbehaves most often, so this is where dog behavior training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Bark Buster trainers conduct the one-on-one training in your home, without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for dog obedience training at a kennel. After learning in your home, our behavioral therapist and trainer will work with you as needed outside and around real distractions, once you and your dog are ready.

All dogs are not the same, so we vary our approach based on each dog's personality and temperament and what will work for that dog. We also vary the dog behavior training to suit the family's specific needs and lifestyle, the dog's environment and what YOU do or do not want from your dog.
Our positive dog training methods are pain-free, treat-free, and clicker-free. We DO NOT use shock collars, spray collars or pronged collars. We will teach you a system of communication your dog already knows, based on canine communication and pack behavior. You will learn how to use your body language and voice tones to get your dog to focus and respect you. You can learn to teach your dog behaviors that are and are not acceptable, both on and off leash, at your home, at the park or virtually anywhere.

What is included in Bark Busters Home Dog Training?
Bark Busters trainers are committed to solving your dog's behavioral issues. We charge a one-time fee on your initial lesson which also covers you and your dog for follow-up visits until you achieve your goals with your dog. We are there for you and will return if new problems arise or old ones resurface.
The first dog training session will take about 2 to 3 hours. Following the first session, you will continue to build the right relationship between you and your dog by practicing for 10-15 minutes a day. This will reinforce your dog's newly learned behavior.

Dog Training FAQs

Expand all

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).

Yes! You might be surprised to hear that dog training can be done remotely, through online video platforms like Zoom. They can take the form of group sessions or one-to-one classes to tackle certain individual behavioural issues. Many customers prefer online dog training for all sorts of reasons, like saving on travel time and costs.
