Dog Training & Behaviour Services
Any Breed, Any Age, Any Problem
Frustrated or desperate when dealing with your dog's inappropriate, embarrassing, or destructive behaviour? Our easy to follow, natural and dog friendly training techniques focus on developing a positive relationship to establish a lasting emotional bond, based on respect and trust. Our training leverages the same communication methods, voice tone and body language, that dogs follow as part of their instinctual behaviour. We come to your home at a convenient time to show and guide you through the lesson. The Bark Busters dog training approach can help owners establish control of their dog without relying on treats or the need for harsh punishment. In the first lesson, most owners see dramatic improvements in their dog's behaviour.
We teach you to communicate with your dog
Do you find yourself shouting, but your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe we're simply not speaking their language. The Bark Busters method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more experienced dogs. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective. Your behaviour therapist will guide you on the most effective way to overcome the problem behaviour and leave you with a training plan to ensure long and lasting results.

The Bark Busters Dog Training Method
No harsh punishment
The Bark Busters method of training is based upon how dogs naturally communicate with each other. Our approach is no harsh punishment, non-physical and as stress free as possible for both you and your dog.
We DO NOT use techniques such as hitting or smacking, shock or spray collars, choke chains, pronged collars, alpha rolling (pinning the dog down), shouting or harsh physical punishment in our approach to training. In addition, as our approach is based upon how dogs communicate, we don't rely on the use of treats or lures. Although treats are a great way to reward your dog, we don't concentrate on their use for dog behaviour and training. We teach you how to gain control of your dog without the use of a lures.
We teach you how to use your VOICE TONE and BODY LANGUAGE to control your dog... both on and off lead, at your home, at the park... anywhere you need it. There may be times when training equipment is needed, such as leads, collars, harnesses etc., and your trainer will discuss this at your lesson.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog is part of your family, in your home. Training in the home environment is far less stressful for your dog. This is also where your dog leans best and where you'll most often see behaviour problems, so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association, so Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment where the association is more established. If your dog does not listen to you in the home environment then it's highly likely he won't listen outside, where there are far more distractions.
Training in your home is a one-to-one system, without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training classes for disrupting the others.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home, such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training scenarios in the park or wherever is most practical.
Lifetime Support Guarantee
