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 28 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

Carol asks...

This question is about: Separation Anxiety

Rosie is a rescue dog so there is seven years of unknown history. She is very affectionate - but I suspect too affectionate - i.e. "needy" and this may be fuelling some separation anxiety. She's OK to be left alone for short periods by day (we're home most of the time), but has partially destroyed our newly-renovated house's walls at night in trying to be with us. We've taken to crating her at night but she has made a good job of rearranging the walls of her metal crate! She also has become frantic if there is a storm and now has been prescribed Xanax (with excellent effect) by our vet. But, as she is a very strong dog, we are concerned if a storm strikes without our being there. We have class panelled doors and I fear the outcome. This is our main issue. As yet she has not been socialized with other dogs. But she LOVES all humans. We would be interested in engaging a local person within your organisation to give us advice with Rosie. We've had Staffies before, but this one is something else!

Managing Destructive Behaviours in Dogs

Managing Destructive Behaviours in Dogs

Dogs who seem intent on destroying the contents of your home and garden can be very difficult to live with. As humans, we find it difficult to understand why our dogs choose to chew chairs, tables, stairs, carpets, skirting boards and walls; some dogs will tear up and chew carpets and vinyl. These can be very expensive habits for any owner to tolerate, and may even result in a dog being rehomed. Read more…
