Want to start your puppy off on the right paw before lifelong problems occur? Bark Busters Sunshine Coast provides the best in puppy training.

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 Sunshine Coast offers 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 Sunshine Coast’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.

Want to see what our satisfied customers have to say about Bark Buster’s Sunshine Coast puppy training?
“My 17 week old mini schnauzer was very reactive, especially with other dogs and would bark really loudly at them. She would pull on her lead to get to them whilst making as much noise as her little body could muster! It was becoming very stressful just to walk down the road as even if a child cycled past she would freak at them. After one session with Faith she is improved. Faith was so understanding and really knew what she was talking about. After having spoken to another dog trainer that week, whose approach was very military and aggressive, it was so wonderful for Faith to teach us such simple successful methods that were gentle and effective. We are feeling so much more confident to deal with our gorgeous puppy now and highly recommend Bark Busters!” Elizabeth Hughes
