Want to start your puppy off on the right paw with puppy training? Bark Busters Bunbury can help you overcome any puppy issues.

Puppies need guidance in the form of puppy obedience training to learn good manners and develop a pleasant, obedient nature. While it’s true that puppies receive much of their socialisation from their mothers and litter mates in the first 12 weeks of life, as your puppy’s pack leader, you will pick up where mother dog left off as primary puppy trainer. Bark Busters trainers offer puppy training in your home, as well as puppy training classes. Crate training puppies, house training puppies, and lead training puppies are primary areas in which your puppy will begin his education to become a good canine citizen.

Bark Busters Bunbury’s Puppy Management Program can be started a few days after your puppy has settled in to the new home. The puppy training program gives you a head start and gives you everything you need to successfully train your puppy at home. In addition the program helps you deal with the many puppy problems that commonly occur in the first 6 months. The training takes place in your home and the initial lesson takes around two to three hours.

The puppy training program can cover:

  • House breaking
  • The benefits of crate training
  • Diet and good food manners
  • Recall – coming when called
  • Gate and door control
  • Sit, stay and down training
  • Correct holding of the lead and walking
  • Walking to heel
  • Distance control (staying with you when there are other distractions)
  • How to successfully socialise your puppy
  • Accustoming your puppy to being handled
  • Bad behaviour management and prevention e.g. jumping up, mouthing, play biting and chewing

Please note: although training will be carried out on the day, puppies can get tired very quickly so some training may only be able to be explained and not demonstrated on the day.

Your puppy will be with you for 10+ years … Bark Busters Bunbury can help you have the obedient dog you observe! Call Catherine Baljeu to see these type of results with puppy training:

“Catharina attended to my Lab x Kelpie pup to address the behavioural problems I was experiencing with him ie jumping up at people, pulling on the lead, chewing. I found Catharina to be very professional, patient and understanding and the training methods that were applied were simple but very effective. By the end of our session I had a new dog, he was well mannered and obedient it really was a great achievement and it also allowed me to have a better understanding of my dog. I look forward to continuing with the training in the future.” KATHY B. | OAKFORD, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
