Dog-Friendly, Dog Training That Works

Speaking Dog the Bark Busters Way

Bark Busters AUWelcome to Bark Busters Australia, part of the international dog training company founded over 27 years ago. Bark Busters founders Sylvia and Danny Wilson have refined a method of dog obedience training that makes dog training easy and accessible to all. With Bark Busters, you work directly with a dog trainer in your own home using a method that takes into account the unique challenges you're facing and then fosters a positive relationship between you and your dog. This method enables you to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect, which in turn aids in overcoming past challenges with your pet. Bark Busters dog trainers focus heavily on training people, as much or more as training dogs, so that once you learn to communicate effectively with your dog, you will have the necessary tools to be an effective dog trainer and "leader of his/her pack."

Bark Busters do not use shock, electronic, choker or pronged collars

Eleanor asks...

This question is about: Separation Anxiety

My 15 year old dog gets separation anxiety when we sit at the dining table. She isn't content sitting next to us on her bed or on a chair by our side. She won't settle and shakes, panting and trys to sit on my lap. She is fine with us being anywhere else in the house, even out of site but the dining table upsets her. The dining table is in the same room as the kitchen and lounge so we are never too far away. rnHer reaction is very simular to when we take her to the vet. She is inconsolable and only settles down slowly after we leave the table. How do we settle her down so she doesn't get too worked up.
