RELATIONSHIP BASED DOG TRAINING
Barking Bubz provides holistic pet care options for dogs and cats of all breeds and ages. Our motto is healthy pets from head to tail, and we mean it! We know that dogs and cats are more than just pets, they are family! We provide relationship based dog training, holistic pet nutrition, and desensitized grooming. We work to bridge the communication gap between you and your pets.
Relationship Based Dog Training: a method of training that uses the cooperative relationship between the trainer and the animal to achieve mutually beneficial results, while at the same time enhancing and strengthening their relationship. This means that as Barking Bubz dog trainers, our ultimate goal is to develop a strong emotional and physical bond between owner and dog. While the trainers focus on positive reinforcement methods (treats, praise, and love), they do use some corrections to form boundaries (clapping hands, “no”, collar correction) which dogs use in their natural communication with one another. Corrections will not be used without parent permission and will only be used if absolutely necessary.
A free dog training consultation is required to initiate all dog training options. During the dog training consultation, our trainers will design a training plan that is catered to you and your dogs needs. Our trainers will recommend one of our session options or package options to meet those established needs. You are always welcome to adjust or choose a different session option, add-on to the session option, or purchase a package.
Please keep in mind that dog training must becomes a part of your lifestyle once established in order for your newly fixed/created behaviors to stick! Always think C.P.R. (Consistency, Patience, and Repetition). If you have a difficult time keeping up with the training, consider one of our long term training packages (Gold Pack or Expert Dog Walk Pack).
Always remember, it is never too early or late to train your dog! We provide training for every type of behavior and are happy to help.

An appropriately trained and socialized dog will be provided for excited play!

LURE COURSE RACING
Do you have a high energy crazy pupper? This is the service for you! Lure coursing involves a dog (or multiple) chasing after a flag. It is designed to initiate the dog's natural instinct to chase prey (rabbits, squirrels, etc.). Since it initiates this natural instinct we can also use it as a training tool to teach the dog to leave prey and stop pulling their owners over to chase a squirrel. We offer sessions in 30 minute segments. This service can be performed with the owner present as a dog training course or without the owner present as an enriched form of exercise.
