I offer a variety of options to conduct lessons whilst maintaining social distancing. This includes home lessons, conducting lessons in your garden / open spaces and using video conferencing where applicable. We have introduced a new "Home Lesson Risk Assessment" to help to combat the spread of the virus.
Hello, my name is Gavin and I am your local therapist for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Doncaster area. Thanks for taking the time to visit my page, and find out more about me, my services, and how I can help you get your dog’s behaviour under control.
I am a dog lover and owner myself; Lottie and Pippa are my two Springer Spaniels who keep me active. I love being outdoors with my dogs and enjoying the beautiful local countryside. As a dog trainer I love to take any opportunity to practise and improve my training techniques, and Lottie and Pippa are always willing candidates for learning new skills and winning my praise.
I love meeting and teaching people around the Doncaster area. My background is in training and development, so I'm confident that all the dog owners I help benefit greatly from a training plan that is tailored to both owner and their dog. People need to feel that they have been set manageable and achievable goals and this is what I do. With the Bark Busters communication techniques, I will show you how to train your dog and how to build upon, or rebuild, your relationship so that you can enjoy your lives together.
Whether it is pulling on the lead, aggression, toileting, barking, digging up the garden, chewing the furniture, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry, poor recall, or any other behaviour that is causing you stress, I will come to your home and put in place a personalised training plan to help you get back on track. My training is done in the homes of dog owners, in and around the Doncaster area, because it is a stress-free environment for your dog and where both you and your dog are most relaxed. It is where the bad behaviour starts, and it is a private lesson where you don’t have to worry about other people or dogs. The training is done at your pace and we move on when you and your dog are ready.
In addition, I will leave you with written advice and instruction to help you continue the training after I have left you, together with information handouts. My return visits are free of charge and I am available to support you by telephone or email in between visits if you need me to, and my written support guarantee means that you can be confident that I will continue to support you for the term you have purchased, so you can relax knowing that I am always available for more help.
I can also help you to get off to the right start with puppy training, including toilet training, how to play, crate training if required, then moving on to walking nicely on the lead, and recalling when out and about.
My communication methods are fast acting, long lasting and rely on voice tone and body language. There are lots of opportunities for you to praise and reward your dog when he/she is doing well, and this means that your dog will enjoy their training too. They will also appreciate your new-found confidence, consistency and leadership as they learn to relax more, giving you the opportunity to put an end to the unwanted behaviours that were causing so much stress.
If you would like me to help you towards a well-behaved dog, please do call on 0808 100 4071 or click the red button above, where one of the team will contact you with details of my services and prices. There’s no obligation or pressure to book, but I hope that you will as I would love to meet you and your dog very soon.

Gavin is an excellent trainer. Very knowledgeable and so easy to get on with. He is very professional but very approachable too with a great sense of humour. He gave us plenty of advice, which we are following. After just a few days, we are starting to see a small improvement in our dogs behaviour. We would recommend Gavin to anyone having problems with their dog.H.N.10th September 2018

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.
