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.
Welcome to Bark Busters Home Dog Training Ormskirk, Lancashire. My name is Angela Young and I am delighted to be the Bark Buster therapist and trainer in your area. I love my job that allows me to meet dogs and their owners every day, helping to resolve issues that are causing disharmony in their relationship. As you are visiting this page, you are probably struggling with some aspect of your dog’s behaviour. I am confident that I can help you.
Bark Busters use a unique training system which is non-physical, kind and effective. Our system is based on communication – we teach you to communicate with your dog in a way that he understands. This involves verbal communication, voice tones and body language. Using our system, you will quickly see that your dog suddenly understands what is expected of him, and no longer needs to make decisions himself. He will no longer be overwhelmed by a variety of commands, delivered in different tones of voice.
From our very first session, which takes place in your home at a time to suit you, you will learn how dogs communicate, how they learn who to respect and who to ignore, and how to put yourself in a position of leadership. We will discuss the particular issues that you are struggling with, and we will put a training plan into place to help you to eliminate the unwanted behaviour. Whilst I am with you, I will show and guide you through the training exercises and the communication system so that you are confident to continue with the training in your daily life. Many of my clients will see that they can change their dog’s behaviour during the first session, and nothing makes me happier than to see the smile on a client’s face once they realise that they have the skills to retrain their dog.
Our training system has saved many dogs from the threat of rehoming – something that is part of our mission statement, and that makes us very proud. I also support Freshfield and RSPCA rescue centres locally and help to work with dogs looking for new homes to ensure that their chances of rehoming are as strong as possible. My own dog, Cole, is a rescue dog who was onto his third home by the age of 14 months. He was a nervous and reactive dog who was difficult to control. Using the Bark Buster system, I have trained him into better behaviour so that he is now a pleasure to be with whilst still retaining his enthusiasm for life, and playful personality.
Whether yours is a rescue dog, a puppy, or a dog who you think you will never be able to train out of their bad behaviour, I can help you. From puppy training, through to dealing with barking, aggression, pulling on the lead, recall, toileting, sibling rivalry, or any other unwanted behaviour, you only need to contact me and I will arrange to visit you and put you on the right track to a happier relationship with your dog.
Your initial session will last for 2-3 hours and you will be amazed at how much you learn during that time! The session is very interactive and enjoyable for both you and your dog, so the time will seem to fly by. I will leave you with a new confidence and a training plan to follow, together with the knowledge that you can contact me for more support at any time.
I would love to help you and your dog rebuild your relationship and live together harmoniously going forward. Our team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have and will be happy to chat to you without obligation.
I hope to meet you very soon. I’m confident that your dog will thank you, and you will only wonder why you waited so long!
Angela arrived on time and was polite and confident from the start. Before meeting Dexter we had a detailed discussion so Angela could evaluate both our dogs personality and our ' human ' needs and issues. I was particularly impressed with Angela's knowledge of dog psychology and how easy steps she suggested could make a huge difference to Dexter's happiness and well being. The first stage of training went so well, I could not believe it was our little rascal. The ethos of the training is helping us communicate and reassure Dexter so he can just enjoy being a happy chap. It is all delivered by Angela in a calm and supportive way enabling us to make huge improvements using simple, positive steps. So glad we chose Barkbusters and feel lucky to have Angela as our trainer. We have no hesitation in recomending Barkbusters for helping dog lovers connect with their pets in humane and positive way.A.H.3rd December 2019
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.
