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


"Just had my first session with Alex and honestly couldn't believe how friendly and informative he was, it's been a day since my first session and I already see and difference in my two pups with the helpful exercises Alex was demonstrating and the different walking methods to gain interaction with them to avoid pulling. I'm excited to see how well behaved my two pups can be and Alex is the perfect person to help me along the way super supportive down the earth just a joy to be around would 100% recommend Alex to anyone needing help"

Trainer: Alex Fraser

"Excellent talk with Sharon. She listened to our concerns and provided us with a plan of action that is proving to be a great success."

Trainer: Sharon Chapman

"My 18 month old cocker spaniel has a great personality but also turns into a maniac when he hears a knock at the door, a noise he doesn't know where it's come from, any movement outside etc. He pulls on the lead and doesn't want to be left alone, I can't even nip into the kitchen without him at my feet. After our visit from Alex today, we have started to correct all this behaviour. I feel confident I've got the tools to carry this forward for a much better relationship with my dog and less of a chance of burst ear drums or someone fearing they'll be savaged if they knock on the door. Today I've seen our dog listen to a knock at the door without barking, waiting back from the door, waiting at a boundary line, left him inside alone for 2 mins without barking (bearing in mind I couldn't even take the bin out before) and had an enjoyable walk with him on the lead. I couldn't recommend Alex enough, although there's still a way to go after the initial lesson I feel like I might actually get some normality back. He's worked a miracle in my eyes today."

Trainer: Alex Fraser

"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."

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."

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"

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"

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 !!"

Trainer: Lee Hardy

"It went very well."

Trainer: Kirsty Dudfield

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