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 Bark Busters Home Dog Training Woking. My name is Jacquie Callaby, and I am your local dog trainer and behaviour therapist, here to help you with any problems you may be experiencing with your dog. My 12 years of working with dogs and their owners, means that I am confident that I can help you to find a way forward with any, and all of your training needs.
Many dog owners struggle for years not knowing how to cure their dog’s bad behaviour, and unsure of how to get help. Because I come to you in your home, at a time to suit you, I am able to meet you and your dog in your own environment, where you all feel most safe, less stressed and relaxed. You will have lots of time to explain the problems to me and, together we will work on ways to get things back on track. I do not judge, and I always stress that I will be there to help and support you throughout the training programme. Once I have showed you how my training approach of good communication and kind, consistent leadership works, and I have taken you through a few simple training techniques, you will see for yourself how quickly you can get your dog to listen to you again.
Whether it is excessive barking, destructive behaviour, pulling on the lead, poor recall, separation anxiety, aggression to either dogs or people (or both), sibling rivalry, toilet training, or any other behaviour that is causing you stress, I can help. I also offer puppy training so that you can get off to a good start with your new puppy.
From our very first lesson, we will start to understand the underlying issues behind your dog’s behaviour and work towards putting those things right. You will learn new techniques and training exercises and have lots of opportunity to practise whilst I am with you. Then I will leave you with written information and guidance on how to continue your dog’s training after I have left. My Support Guarantee means that I will return to support you with your progress throughout the term of the service with me. I will also be available for telephone and email support too.
Whilst I grew with, and have always been around dogs, I also understand that people have lives away from their dogs, and that my training needs to fit in around work, home, children and other commitments. So, although I am a ‘doggy person’, I am not of the opinion that dog owners’ worlds should revolve around their dog. Everything that I teach you can be incorporated into your daily life, whatever your other commitments.
My lessons are tailored specifically to yours and your dog's needs and are fun and friendly. I can confidently say that you will enjoy training your dog, and that your dog will enjoy the training too! Once you have learnt to communicate with your dog in a way that he/she understands, your dog will be much happier, and many of the bad behaviours will be easily eradicated. I know from my own dog, Miller, that the Bark Busters training methods work. By using them consistently and patiently, he was able to overcome his separation anxiety issues, meaning that we were not prisoners in our own home – something that I know is an issue for many dog owners.
I would love to meet you and your dog if you think I can help you in any way. If you’d like to know more, you can take a look at my testimonials from satisfied customers. Alternatively, you can ring on freephone 0808 100 4071 for a no-obligation chat about the services we offer.
I hope to meet you very soon.
I have 2 miniature Dachshunds that are the love of my life and between them had several issues which needed addressing - but the main issue was the escalating aggressive behaviour of the older Dachshund (4 years) which prompted me to contact Bark Busters. On the initial visit Jacquie spent several hours with us and also accompanied us on a walk to observe them. She made several suggestions and devised a plan for us to follow. (I think really it’s about training the owners not the dogs)!!! After 3 weeks she returned for a progress check. I can honestly say the results were amazing and I can hardly believe that such small changes in their routine and lifestyle have made such huge improvements. It is now 6 weeks after the initial visit and their behaviour is very much improved. For anyone experiencing difficulties with their dogs behaviour, I would have no hesitation In recommending Jacquie. She has a wealth of knowledge, very patient and not at all judgmental.T.S.2nd July 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.
