Updated 5th January 2021 - I offer a variety of options to conduct lessons whilst maintaining social distancing. This includes home lessons where appropriate, conducting lessons in your garden / open spaces and using video conferencing. We have introduced a "Home Lesson Risk Assessment" to help to combat the spread of the virus.
Welcome to home dog training Wakefield & Huddersfield, I'm Gavin Chambers, your local Bark Busters dog behaviour therapist and trainer. If you are having trouble getting your dog’s behaviour under control, or just want some help getting your puppy training off to a good start then you've found the right place.
The dog training and behaviour services that I offer are conducted in your home, so the training is always one-to-one and tailored to your needs. It also means that I come to you at a time to suit you and your dog, so that you can both be relaxed and less stressed. Our lessons will always be friendly and informal with the emphasis on helping you and your dog to understand one another and put in place some strategies to help eliminate the bad behaviour that is causing you so much stress. I do not judge you or to criticise you and I will be there to help and support you, see where things are going wrong, address any underlying issues that may be causing your dog’s bad behaviour, and start to rebuild your relationship with your furry friend.
I am a dog owner and dog lover myself. My two working Springer Spaniels are full of life and enthusiasm and, as you can imagine, keep me fit and active. I love that my dogs have their own characters and personalities, and I know that my clients appreciate their dogs in the same way. I know that people want a calm, well-behaved dog who retains their spirit and love of life as well as their quirky personality traits. My clients learn how good leadership with their dog, together with consistent communication, helps to eliminate many aspects of canine bad behaviour without taking away their dog’s zest for life.
If you are looking for professional dog training near you, then you've found the right place. Whether your dog shows aggression to other dogs or animals, aggression to strangers, excessive barking, digging, toileting issues, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry or any other problem behaviour that makes your life difficult, I can help. By showing you how to effectively communicate you will soon be on the way to a better dog! I can also help you with issues such as pulling on the lead, recall, basic obedience, and puppy training too.
My background, prior to becoming a dog trainer and behaviour therapist, was as a skills trainer. I love working with people almost as much as I love working with dogs! I enjoy teaching people new skills and I am especially happy that my role enables me to do this whilst meeting lots of dogs and getting out and about in this beautiful part of the country. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing the smile on my clients’ faces when their dog starts to listen to them after years of struggling, trying different methods and getting nowhere. The training system I use is easy to follow and incorporate into your daily life.
If you would like to find out more, please click the red button or call freephone 0808 100 4071 for a no-obligation chat. If you decide that I’m the dog trainer and behaviour therapist for you, I’d be delighted to help you. You can then relax knowing that I’m on my way to help you and your dog.

how we can help you and your furry friend
The Bark Busters communication methods help solve behaviour issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Do you find yourself shouting? Do you think your pet isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking their language. The Bark Busters communication method is based on the way how our dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more experienced members in the pack. This is what makes our training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your pet lives with a family, in a home. This is where he spends most of his time and misbehaves most often, so this is where our programme is most effective. Our dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches him to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will most probably not listen outside where there are far more distractions.
In your home we teach a one-on-one system without other distractions or the stress of being sent away from you to learn.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression etc..., we will set up controlled situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
Your trainer is an independent business owner who operates their own business under a franchise agreement with Bark Busters. Gavin Chambers trading as Bark Busters, is a franchisee of BBDT (UK) Limited, the Master Franchise holder.
