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, and thanks for visiting Bark Busters Home Dog Training Uttoxeter. I’m Lee Hardy, your local Bark Busters Trainer and Behaviour Therapist here to help you with any problems you may be experiencing from your dog.
If you’re reading my page, you are no doubt struggling with some aspect of dog behaviour or training and looking for some professional help. Whatever problems you are experiencing, you are not alone even though it might sometimes feel like yours is the only badly-behaved dog in the area! I can assure you that I have been in the position you are now, struggling to cope with a dog who has behavioural issues, not wanting to give up on your dog, but unsure of where to turn. It was my own experience with my black Labrador, Rannan, 20 years ago that prompted me to call Bark Busters for help. I was so blown away with the results that I decided to train to become a Bark Busters trainer and behaviour therapist myself. I have now trained over 4,000 dogs and their grateful owners during my 20-year career with Bark Busters. I meet many people from various walks of life with different breeds of dog displaying every imaginable behaviour problem. The common link between my clients is that their dog’s behaviour is causing them stress, and they want it to stop.
It could be aggression, nuisance barking, destructive behaviour, toileting, poor recall, pulling on the lead, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry, boisterous behaviour, or anything else where you feel that your dog training is not working. My training system is easy to understand and based on teaching you how to communicate in a fast, effective, kind and consistent way so that your dog will understand what you need of them. From our very first lesson your dog will understand what you are trying to communicate and gain the confidence in you. My training is easy to follow, your dog will relax very quickly and will be much happier. There is a never a need to become physical or punish your dog if you follow my simple system of training.
Looking for puppy training?
If you are the owner of a new puppy, I can help you with puppy management so that you get off on the right track from the start and avoid the risk of future problems developing. My puppy training is fun, gentle and very positive. Puppies learn in short bursts with lots of praise and should never be punished for mistakes. I have a 5-month-old puppy myself and have integrated her into our family of 3 humans and 3 other dogs without a problem. This is because I understand the importance of good-quality food, regular feeding, careful introduction to older dogs, time to play, healthy things to chew on, and plenty of opportunity for uninterrupted sleep. I will happily share all this knowledge with you to help you have the best dog you can.
Although our training is home based you'll still have the opportunity to take your dog out for walks if you wish to do that as part of your training. If you're experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling or aggression, I can show you the training techniques to follow to resolve these problems.
If you would like to know more about me and the services I offer, please give us a call on freephone 0808 100 4071 and a lovely lady called Amanda will call you with all the information you need with no obligation. You can also take a look at my reviews from satisfied customers. Just click on the reviews button. I also have a Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/BarkbustersDerby/ where I share lots of pictures, interesting articles and fun facts about dogs, so please feel free to visit and ‘like’ the page.
I look forward to meeting you and your dog very soon
Great to have someone come in and be able to identify the problems fairly quickly as well as offer simple but effective solutions. Lee was great at giving us techniques to use which we could easily understand and just need to work on to put into practice. Our two dogs have come a long way in a short space of time which gives us confidence and makes us feel more positive going forward. It's also great to know we have someone at the end of a phone for any questions or issues that crop up.S.L.9th February 2020
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.
