Bark Busters Home Dog Training Shoalhaven, Nowra, Berry, Ulladulla & Eurobodalla areas
Hi, I’m Philippa Dakin your local Behaviour Therapist & Trainer for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Nowra, Shoalhaven Heads, Kangaroo Valley, Berry, Ulladulla, Vincentia, Narooma & Eurobodalla Region.
I can’t remember any time in my life when I haven’t been involved with dogs. I have worked in the animal care industry for over 20 years as a qualified equestrian coach, veterinary nurse and canine behavioural therapist. I bring a wide spectrum of experience to Bark Busters.
It is incredibly rewarding to work with people and their dogs - to give owners the knowledge and skills to be good, kind leaders for their dogs. Our unique system is based on how dogs communicate and learn naturally. It is not a quick fix button but a training program that works effectively and quickly with some minor maintenance from the owners. We don’t try and make the dogs think like humans, we teach the owners to see things from the dog’s perspective.
I come to your home at a day and time that suits you to conduct the In Home Dog Training with you and your dog/s, as this is where most of their bad behaviour occurs. Then I leave you with a Life of the Dog Support Guarantee, which means there is ongoing assistance free of charge if further help is required.
Collectively at Bark Busters we have helped over 1 million dogs to go onto lead happy fulfilled lives as well-behaved members of their pack.

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.
