Dog Training in Your Home

An international company founded over 35 years ago and over 1 million dogs trained worldwide. Bark Busters trainers work directly with you in your own home to resolve behaviour problems and help with your general training needs. Of course, where problem behaviours happen outside your home, we work with you to resolve problems such as pulling, lunging, chasing and more severe problems such as aggression to other dogs, animals, or people.

Our approach works because it is based on how dogs naturally learn and communicate. Whether you have a puppy, adolescent or older dog, by ensuring they follow your cues and commands will help them navigate and thrive in the human world they live in.

35 Years, Training over 1 Million Dogs

Our training programmes consider the unique challenges you are facing, fostering a positive relationship between you and your dog. Our method enables you to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect, which in turn aids in overcoming the challenges with your dog. Bark Busters Home Dog Training behaviour therapists focus on dog owners too. We teach you how to communicate effectively with your dog so that you have the necessary tools to overcome any of your dog's behaviour problems. Our techniques work with any breed, any age and with any behaviour problem. You and your dog get one-to-one personal attention in your home, a tailored training plan for both you and your dog. Our support guarantee gives you the peace of mind that your trainer is here to help and support you for the life of your dog.

What our customers are saying

 

"Alex was very professional and friendly. Mavis is a rescue English Bulldog. I've had her 5 weeks now and while she gets on with my other 3 dogs when I'm walking her and she sees another dog she starts pulling barking trying to get to the dog and whining really bad. Alex showed me how to handle her on these outbursts and hopefully we will see a difference and she will be to heel. We also did indoor training as well which is a great success. I would definitely recommend Alex. Its also great he comes to your home."

Annette
Trainer: Alex Fraser

"We contacted Bark Busters as we needed help with our French Bulldog who was showing signs of worsening resource guarding/aggression and general behavioural issues such as lead pulling and jumping up. We were absolutely blown away with the training, knowledge and professionalism provided by Kirsty during our first session and how our dog responded instantly to the passive leadership techniques that Kirsty taught us. Kirsty spent 3 hours with us and we covered all of the behaviours we were concerned with, all of which have improved drastically since we introduced the corrective commands taught by Kirsty. After the first session Kirsty provided us with a written analysis of our dogs behaviour and the reasons for it, and detailed instructions of everything we covered in the session. This was super helpful as it meant we didn’t need to make notes during the session and could just focus on the training. We will be recommending Bark Busters and specifically Kirsty to everyone - fantastic value and money well spent."

Eliza
Trainer: Kirsty Dudfield

"Our trainer Kirsty was brilliant very knowledgeable patient and friendly . Very professional and has taught us and Bella techniques that have had immediate and positive results. Kirsty was approachable and friendly. We had Bella as a rescue dog from the dogs home and found we had challenging issues to address. Kirsty has helped us address these issues and we would not hesitate in recommending her"

Ann
Trainer: Kirsty Dudfield

"Sarah was extremely friendly and helpful with lots of information and advice about how to deal with Meg’s issues. We discussed the background of Meg and the challenges I had encountered since having her and whilst I had come along way winning Meg’s trust I needed help to move forward with other issues and the training advice and tips were very useful and hopefully will work. Sarah was a very knowledgeable but also honest and open about it takes time patience and time needs to be put in. Highly recommend to anyone based on my experience to date"

Sue
Trainer: Sarah Coleman

"Very impressed with Lee. Sensible and sound - very comfortable with his training advice. He was very approachable and explained all the issues and we feel confident that with his continued support we will overcome Walter’s issues. We wish we had met Lee ages ago !!"

"Neil was amazing. My dogs behaviour is dramatically different ."

Karen
Trainer: Neil Price

"Wow!!! This service is absolutely amazing! Do not waste your money elsewhere. There is five adults in our home and lead busy in and out the house lives. We have a Reggie the Patterdale and Frank the cocker. We have tried lots of other training and some made our dogs worse and that cost us a fortune and more than we spent with Barkbusters! I was apprehensive this could work given nothing else has. Firstly Kevin is amazing. Put us at ease, was kind, friendly, fun and very very knowledgeable. We knew we had failed our dogs but Kevin never made us feel that way he is there to educate and help and this training is worth every penny. Having read the reviews I thought this is amazing but maybe other people’s dogs aren’t as tough as ours and it won’t work for us. I had got to a point of avoiding all situations out walking and dreading people coming to our house as we would have to manage the dogs, jumping, barking and sometimes being aggressive as Frank can be protective. Within one minute of our dogs being out in the room they were calm, listening, doing as they’re told. We literally couldn’t believe what we were seeing. We did a some training in our garden and the dogs were perfect. Then Kevin suggested going out and the busier the better and my anxiety hit the roof. I thought this is where it will all go wrong. There’s no way I would take them to a busy seaside and go to a cafe which is exactly what we did. They were again perfectly behaved. All of us were in shock. We gave Kevin a long a4 list of issues and they have ALL gone!! It’s all so simple too. Other training has been so complicated we haven’t stuck to it. This is easy, you’re in control, life is better and we can now take them everywhere and anywhere which is crazy to us as we avoided so many situations and felt so tied to the house and couldn’t enjoy life. This has changed all of our lives and we are so happy and our dogs are much happier, settled, content and enjoying their lives too. We are on day three and everything is the same. We’ve been on lots of walks, been to cafes with other dogs and our dogs have sat there beautifully, I can’t believe it… we are so proud and happy. Life is so great. My only regret is not doing this three years ago when we first got Reggie. Thank you so much Kevin. Our chaotic house is now a very calm and happy home for me, my children, Reggie & Frank…. Oh and our visitors :)"

Christine
Trainer: Kevin McDonnell

"Emma was absolutely brilliant after the first 3 hour lesson my dog was totally transformed. Emma came again today to give me lead training & within half an hour Scout was walking to heel. There's still a long way to go but with Emma's help I'm 100% sure we will get there. I can highly recommend her."

David
Trainer: Emma Barrett

"Kirsty training session was very informative and useful; everything was explained clearly and easy to understand."
