Bark Busters Safety Training

Since 1991, delivering Stand Rite No Bite® Canine Safety Training  has consistently delivered almost a 100% reduction in bites and attacks reported by organisations who have invested and followed the course outcomes, a greater understanding and confidence in employees dealing with canines in the workplace, higher achievement of workplace key result areas and measures of success and in the case of unavoidable, unseen attacks the severity of bites has been greatly reduced. Bark Buster's natural dog training techniques leverage the same communications methods, body language and voice control, that dogs follow as part of their instinctual mentality. Without the use of complicated or aversive techniques and equipment, our employee safety program teaches sustainable ways to discourage dogs from developing fearful or aggressive responses to household visitors. Bark Busters Stand Rite No Bite® Dog Safety Program™ differs from other methods that rely solely on video, printed materials, physical methods and ineffective, even dangerous, equipment. The Bark Busters program is highly interactive and engaging. We do not use any physical or aggressive actions in our safety training programs


Bark Busters Commitment to Safety

Bark Busters Danny and SylviaThe program is designed by world renown dog behaviouralists and trainers Danny and Sylvia Wilson, founders of the world largest dog training company, Bark Busters home dog training. Having been founded in the late 80’s by Sylvia and Danny Wilson, while Sylvia was Manager of an RSPCA animal shelter on the South Coast of NSW.  In working with unruly, aggressive and misbehaving dogs, they found that using simple canine communication and pack law techniques allowed them to train all dogs quickly and easily. From this, they created the Stand Rite No Bite® Canine Safety Training which is mandatory training for all Bark Busters dog behavioural therapists and trainers around the world and now available to the general public through our corporate programs. They now head the most successful dog training company in the world, with offices throughout Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States, Japan, and Canada.
