meet your specialist trainer Allan Foster
Bark Busters Home Dog Training Riverina Region of NSW
My name is Allan and I am your Bark Busters Dog Trainer for the ACT and surrounding areas. I also currently administer the Riverina region of NSW.
Like a lot of people, I have been around dogs my whole life. However, I never thought that I would be involved in dog training as a career. I ran on the corporate treadmill for over 25 years but found I was not enjoying myself. When the opportunity to become a Bark Busters Therapist came up, I couldn't resist. Now, instead of sitting behind a desk all day, I get to spend my time doing something I love. I particularly enjoy the immediate feedback I receive from clients - the response they get from their dogs to the training leaves smiles all round. It is true that a happy, well adjusted dog means a happier, more relaxed family!
I think all clients appreciate the natural, gentle and easy methods that Bark Busters uses, which are based on communicating with your dog in a language it understands, as well as the unique written lifetime support guarantee, which offers peace of mind that if any problems develop in future, their dog is looked after.
I recently went to visit a client who first used Bark Busters 12 years ago for their 1 year old Japanese Spitz. After spending a very long and happy life with their dog they were saddened to find that he was now deaf. They asked for my assistance because the dog had become quite fearful now that he couldn't hear and would bark whenever he was left alone. With a bit of gentle help they were able to help their dog overcome his fear and go back to being the lovable dog that he really was. These clients were so impressed that our lifetime guarantee really means lifetime.
When I think back to some of the pets my family owned when I was growing up and the battles that were had trying to control a particularly manic miniature poodle call Pepe, I wish Bark Busters had been around earlier. It would have saved my parents an awful lot of stress and money. Pepe was out of control and was constantly trying to push his way through the venetian blinds to get as close as possible to the window. He very quickly got stuck in the blinds but Pepe had his own solution, he would happily chew his way out.
Now I see owners of dogs actually enjoy their dogs company, when previously they were like my parents, at their wits end. I have helped teach people to communicate with their dogs in a language that dogs can understand, which means the dogs learn and respond quickly to training. I have helped address a variety of issues including barking, jumping up, aggression, bad toileting habits, lead work, recall and much more without ever resorting to getting physical with the dogs.

how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog 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 for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
