A Better Dog Home Dog TrainingServes the entire Central and North Metro-Atlanta area from Midtown to Cumming to Decatur and out to Douglasville. Barry will travel all of metro-Atlanta to help with severe Behavior Issues. Often Barry can have success where others have failed. He has the experience to meet your training needs and resolve your pet issues using his proven training methods that your dog will love, trust, and respect.

For a happy, healthy, and well-behaved dog, proper training is critical. There are considerable responsibilities involved in training any dog properly and a well-behaved dog requires commitment from the owner. Oftentimes, the owner feels overwhelmed by the time and effort involved. However, after you learn with A Better Dog Home Dog Training, you will be able to maintain optimal obedience with minimal time and effort!

Barry’s in-home programs teach you to be your dog’s pack leader utilizing psychology, structure, and clear communication. He will teach you the structure that your dog needs and how to live with him or her in such a way that you will always have his or her respect and love. Each session will be individualized and tailored to fit your specific needs and the learning style for you and your dog.

Training does not have to be a negative thing. Using love, affection, and praise, you will create a relationship to motivate your dog, AND you’ll earn your new best friend’s respect, trust and love. In addition to teaching obedience, our methods strengthen communication skills while building a trusting and respectful relationship between you and your dog.

Rescue and Adoption

Barry became involved in the dog rescue world about 13 years ago and personally has a rescue dog that came from Fayette County Animal Control. Gabriel was in his 10 day quaritine and was due to be put down at the end as his owner turned him in for biting three people in the family. Since Barry partnered with that shelter, he worked with Gabriel and then was allowed to do a personal rescue that saved Gabriel’s life. That is one of many stories Barry could tell about his partnerships with rescues and two county shelters. He has volunteered his time at several local shelters, schools, and rescues not only teaching the staff and volunteers how to train basic behaviors, but also working with special cases himself.

Rescue dogs need and deserve normalcy in their lives. Normalcy to a dog is leadership and pack. All rescue dogs have the ability to become just a dog and a family (pack) member, not a rescue.
