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

 

"Another great session with Sarah, we managed to walk our dog to heel within half an hour!! so pleased."

Imelda
Trainer: Sarah Coleman

"I was really pleased with how the first session with Alex went. I was feeling a bit despairing due to dog reactivity which was making walks really stressful. Alex discussed everything in great detail and went through some basic manners with my dogs as well as giving me a clear idea of what the whole family needed to do to improve things. I now feel much more positive and am looking forward to the next session."

Samantha
Trainer: Alex Fraser

"We found our first training lesson very informative and of great benefit. Kirsty was excellent, very calming in her approach. Such a lovely lady. Harvey is already responding well to his initial lesson topics. We are confident he will continue to improve and can’t wait for his next lesson."

Kim
Trainer: Kirsty Dudfield

"Our first session with Sarah was a game changer, we understand so much more which has made us generally so much happier and confident with our dog, finally gotten past feeling stuck which resulted in a decline in our dogs behavior, she's so much happier and calmer, the training so far has felt very manageable and achievable and look forward to progressing. Loved the advice on feeding and nutrition and again that was also another game changer for our dog. Overall we're over the moon, thanks Sarah!!"

Imelda
Trainer: Sarah Coleman

"Tim was absolutely amazing with our dog (Duncan). Within 10mins he was listening to Tim's commands I couldn't believe my eyes. The training schedule he gave us for Duncan has worked from day one."

Sue
Trainer: Tim

"In one session, Tim was able to correct my dog’s behaviour pretty much instantly and gave me the tool / tactic to use to achieve the same myself. So far, so good! She seems to have learnt a new habit through me being consistent, and seems much calmer."

Andrea
Trainer: Tim

"Tim was great at our home visit, nice and friendly bloke and you can tell he has a lot of knowledge about dogs! I was really nervous about Dorito being around him but it went so well and I can’t wait to see all the improvements! Would 100% recommend this company to anyone!"

Megan
Trainer: Tim

"Practical and down to earth techniques that were designed to fit around our lives rather than the other way round. Sharon is kind, calm and realistic and I’d fully and highly recommend her if you’re looking for a trainer. We had a dog that cried at the bottom of the stairs if I went to the loo, I now have a dog that comfortably stays on her own for 2 hours - absolute game changer."

Justine
Trainer: Sharon Chapman

"Tim explained what and why Reggie was acting the way he was and gave easy instructions on how to correct his behaviour. It’s only been a week but there has noticed a marked improvement"

Donna
Trainer: Tim

"Thank goodness for Ben Jordan! We had almost reached desperation point with our two Jack Russell puppies, as despite being a doggy household we were struggling to overcome the multiple training problems we were experiencing. We particularly needed help with their constant barking which was disturbing our neighbours as well as being problematical for us. This attention seeking extended to whenever we were getting ready to go for a walk, the puppies and our older dog would run around barking and were completely out of control as we tried to leave the house. Ben spent a long time with us, really getting to know the dogs and listening to us as we worked through our various concerns. He then started instigating step by step training techniques ensuring we were both confident to use these methods too. We were so pleased to see the dogs responding so well. It didn't stop there as Ben joined us on a walk round the local area, clearly demonstrating the correct way to control the dogs on a loose lead. Since the end of our first lesson we are practising the techniques Ben taught us every day. We are so pleased with the positive response we are getting and the dogs seem so much happier and more settled too. We are looking forward to our next lesson and thoroughly recommend Ben to anyone needing support with their dog."

Trainer: Ben Jordan
