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.
Live virtual dog training Dumfries & Galloway and surrounding areas. We currently do not have a dog trainer physically located in your area that could visit your home, however we don’t let that stop us from helping you and your dog, as we do offer Live Video Meeting Training, with video, telephone and email support between lessons, directly with Angela Young, who is our excellent and experienced trainer and behaviour therapist covering your area.
Our virtual dog training lessons by video conferencing in the comfort of your home can be just the thing you need to solve any dog behaviour problems or general obedience issues that may be causing you and your dog stress and frustration. Our virtual training is very effective, relaxed and popular and because we can see your dog’s behaviour over video link and we can observe how they interact with you, we can ensure that during the training exercises we guide you through, whilst meeting and coaching you online, your dog is responding directly to you and not the trainer.
My name is Angela Young, I’m a Master Dog Trainer and Behaviour Therapist with Bark Busters, helping hundreds of dog owners like you to resolve their dog's behaviour problems. I also provide puppy training to give your new addition the very best start on their path to being a relaxed, confident and well behaved canine companion. During my time with Bark Busters, I've had lots of experience and success in teaching and counselling people over live video and telephone to get them past frustrating dog behaviour problems and to help settle dogs into their new homes as I am also a volunteer behaviourist for a local rescue centre.
If you are looking for dog training near you then you've found the right place. For those areas where we do not have a trainer physically located, I am able to effectively use my skills remotely with you by video meetings and telephone. I can help those who live outside Bark Busters' current coverage areas where we are unable to physically attend your home, but as I offer live personal training lessons to you online, you are able to benefit from the proven, successful, highly effective and dog friendly Bark Busters methods and techniques that have helped millions of dogs worldwide.
How it works:
Depending on the behaviour issues you are facing, we will schedule a series of video conference lessons. We will discuss the issues you are facing, I will give you a clear and easy to understand insight into why I believe your dog may be presenting certain behaviours and I will give you a structured and bespoke training plan and exercises to practice during the lessons, where I can see and coach you so that you are comfortable to continue to practice them between meetings. At each subsequent lesson, we will evaluate your dog’s progress and I will continue to guide you until you see the results you are looking for and have a more relaxed, content and well behaved dog or puppy. The number of lessons required is dependent on the behaviour problems and situation, as each dog is unique, but most dog owners see an immediate positive change to their dog’s behaviour after the very first lesson. I have packages available to suit your budget and to help you overcome your dog's behaviour problems.
To discuss what would work for you and your dog, please call our freephone number 0808 100 4071 or use the red contact button and we will call you back as soon as possible.
I’m committed to helping people understand and communicate with their dogs because I know the end result is truly a wonderful experience and a happier relationship between dogs and their owner. With our ongoing support guarantee for the duration of your training programme, you are not alone with Bark Busters.

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.
