Bark Busters Home Dog Training in Caboolture, Maroochydore and Kawana Waters areas
Hi, I am Faith your local dog trainer on Queensland's Sunshine Coast including the areas Caboolture, Maroochydore and Kawana Waters.
You know how you should really love the job you do? Dadaaa! That's me.
After 20 years of being part of the loving Bark Busters family, I'm even more passionate now about helping people and their dogs than when I first started..and that's saying something!
I can make a huge difference to dog's lives for the better, and that is my driving motivation.
After training, rescuing and rehabilitating many many dogs, I understand their needs and how to get the very best out of them and their humans in a kind and sometimes humorous way. Rapport with my clients is first and foremost!
It's all about love, respect and fantastic results for me. I understand how stressful an out of control dog can be and love seeing the dramatic difference in the dog and their human by the end of my lessons.
There is no such thing as a bad dog... just ineffective communication.
My training is not about military style basic obedience. My approach comes from a deep respect of who you are and where you are coming from - respecting your unique situation and what your dog means to you and what you really want in your relationship.
There is no room for aggressive methods or shock collars or food rewards or clicker training in my simple approach ..
Sometimes you just have to see the quick results to believe it! It's about nurturing a loving and easy going relationship so everyone can really enjoy the benefits of a happy dog. If you have failed puppy school, been kicked out of obedience classes or been told that your dog is 'untrainable' then I am your girl.
I have trained over 1000 dogs and their humans, and rehabilitate greyhounds after a very rough start in their lives.
I have campaigned against animal cruelty for over 30 years now and am proud to have been the driving force behind the banning of the use of pound dogs in vivisection experiments. I have appeared on television numerous times, debating (and winning) the perpetrators of unscientific, cruel and useless animal experimentation. Loving what I do reflects in all my lessons and it's something I am so proud of.
Please take the time to listen to my interview with Radio ABC 90.3 as I shed light on the aggressive behaviour in our dogs.
If you need any help or advice please don't hesitate to contact me, your Local Expert,
on 1800 067 710 or email me direct.

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.
