Hello

I'm Keith Axsom

Over the past 12 years I’ve trained over 3,000 dogs using our natural, humane methods. Typically you can expect 80-90% improvement on the very first session!

COMMON BEHAVIOR

IN DOGS

Most behavioral issues are learned based on both experiences and environment. That’s why in home dog training is so effective because this is where most behavioral issues occur and it’s where your dog feels the safest. Because your dog can’t speak English and you can’t “speak dog” many miscommunications occur. At Bark Busters, we can teach you how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands.
