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.

"Amazing transformation….!!! We are still in shock…! We contacted Kevin as we were having issues with our 14 month old Cavapoo, Blaze who was trying to be the ‘top dog’ and rule us all – we knew what he was doing, but we had no idea how to stop it. His behaviours were, over excitement when meeting people, separation anxiety, excessive barking in the garden and recall issues. On arrival Kevin immediately put us at ease, and within the hour we had a totally different dog. Overall Kevin spent 3 to 4 hours with us, both inside our home and out and about in our local community. He addressed all the issues by embedding the straightforward technique that was initially learnt. We cannot believe that something so easily enforced can work so effectively. We now have a very well behaved dog who is much happier, settled and contented now he knows that it’s not his responsibility to keep us all in check. Our sincere thanks Kevin. PS: If you have any issues with your dog, contact Kevin, you will not regret it."

"Gina did an amazing job with Wilson and we can see a big difference. We stick to the tasks that were set for us, it's only going to get better."

Scott
Trainer: Gina Williams

"When our new dog Nessa started to make us feel we genuinely needed some external help and advice, initial research left us confused. Did we need a dog trainer or a dog behaviourist? After lengthy research and lots of discussion, we kept circling back to Ben at Barkbusters. We took the plunge and arranged our first session. After that first session we felt that Ben provided everything we expected in terms of behaviour and training. The results were immediate and Ben spent lots of time listening to our individual concerns before teaching us how get the very best out of Nessa in terms of basic behaviour, control and most of all, being able to go for walks whilst while Nessa stayed calmly at heal, ignoring distractions and accepting that during walks, and whilst indoors, we were pack leaders and not her. The changes to our lives, and I must add Nessa's, have been immeasurable. She is now a much happier, calmer, content dog. Ben has always been on hand if we needed advice, and left us with a renewed self confidence that we could do everything he taught us. That more than anything, made all the difference. Thank you Ben & Thank you Barkbusters. Maggie, Colin & Nessa"

Maggie
Trainer: Ben Jordan

"Sarah was very professional. She was really informative on what we needed to do. She also talked us through the training in practice and gave us constant feedback to help us support Teddy's needs. She explained the importance of perseverance and patience. It won't be a quick fix but after 5 days we're seeing signs of improvement. We know she's there for us throughout the training programme. Can't praise her enough."

Julie
Trainer: Sarah Coleman

"Alex was incredible. He was professional and answered our questions appropriately and earnestly. His knowledge was phenomenal, and it has really helped in our understanding and training our puppy Levi. The hands on approach was immensely helpful and made it easier to understand and follow his directions."

Tracy
Trainer: Alex Fraser

"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"

Bradley
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."

Geoffrey
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."
