We are the world’s largest and most trusted training company. We’ve helped over 500,000 dogs and their owners worldwide. Worried about barking, jumping, lead pulling, separation anxiety and/or aggression to dogs or people? In most cases we see dramatic results in 2-3 hours. We teach owners to talk dog! Bark Buster’s unique system teaches owners to communicate with their dogs in a language the dogs understand. Dogs misbehave for two reasons: confusing communication (they don’t know what owners want) and confusing pack structure (they don’t think the owners are the leaders). We teach owner how to eliminate the confusion. Why do we achieve such amazing results? Bark Buster’s methods challenge a dog to think and make his own decisions. Once we take the owner step by step through their dog’s learning process, they become skilled at teaching their dog what they want solving current issues and eliminating future bad behaviour too! Doesn’t it make sense that a dog will understand better when we use his language, in his home? We believe in our methods and we back it up with a Written Lifetime Guarantee. This means that we will return free of charge at any stage in the dog’s life if problems recur or even if new ones emerge and being an international company our guarantee transfers with you if you move to a different area!

The training method used is a combination of meaningful rewards and proven scientific methods. It is a proven training method that teaches the dog, rather than train the dog. The training method is to “train with the brain not pain.” Harsh or compulsive methods are never used. My training method is based on a foundation of cooperation and trust not coercion of fear and intimidation. Each session is customized to meet your needs and your dogs temperament.
