Meet Your Trainer Kristie Toombs

Welcome to dog training Liverpool & Greystanes, South West Sydney, I am Kristie Toombs, your local Bark Busters dog behaviour therapist and trainer. I have always had a natural affinity with dogs and all animals and a desire to have a career that involved working closely with them.

When I first discovered the Bark Busters method of training dogs, I was in awe of how quickly it transformed unwanted behaviour in dogs, without fear, force or bribery. I knew then that this was what I wanted to do.

Growing up in the country, on farmland, I was always surrounded by a large variety of different types of animals, but especially dogs. I was always in awe of the farm dogs and how intelligent they were communicating with their owners to round up livestock, and the bond between owner and dog. I knew that my calling was to work with animals and was lucky to have vet nursing courses available to me through years 11 and 12 as part of my HSC. I studied hard over those 2 years and am happy to say that I passed all units with the highest marks on everything dog related. Unfortunately, after school I was unable to continue with my vet nursing studies but I never stopped wanting to work with animals. I have finally been given that chance after many years and I am grateful to Bark Busters and my clients for giving me the opportunity to finally achieve my dream.

We know you love your dog and want the very best for them but sometimes their behaviour is difficult to understand. This is because of the way humans communicate with their dogs can be confusing to their dogs. Dogs don’t process events the way humans do, neither do they communicate or comprehend the same and this is what I see on a daily basis with the dogs and families I work with. Their dogs need to understand what their owners want them to do.

I work with all breeds of dogs. Standard and toy Poodles, Cavoodles, Spoodles, Labradoodles, Staffies, Bull breeds, Maremmas, Labradors, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Great Pyrenees, Aussie Cattle dogs and Border Collies, Havanese, Malinois, Cocker Spaniels, Pomeranians, Kelpies, Corgis, Terriers and more.

If you are looking for professional dog training near you, then you have found the right place. There is no issue Bark Busters won’t deal with and we can address all types of behaviour and all types of issues, any breed, any age, any problem, including those dogs that are disabled, blind, deaf and physically disabled etc. No problem too difficult. 

Does your dog:

  • Pull on the lead when you go for a walk?
  • Jump on the furniture and on family and visitors?
  • Won’t come when you call them?
  • Is barking an issue?
  • Leash reactive?
  • Does your dog get upset when you go out, suffer from separation anxiety and get upset when you leave the room?
  • Is aggression an issue?
  • Do you think your dog’s behaviour is anti-social or concerning you?
  • Do you need puppy training and management, with things like toilet training, puppy biting or barking etc?
  • Whatever the training or behavioural issue, Bark Busters can help you.

You may be about to get a new puppy and need some early education training and advice. I love working with puppies, they are the best fun, but most of all I love the fact they are so willing to learn. I help puppy owners understand their new puppy.

Puppies need understanding and careful handling, there is a lot to learn about owning a new puppy and I can help you settle your new puppy in and help you through that settling in period too. Many new puppy parents struggle to cope with their new puppy and need help with toilet training, settling in, early education, barking and general puppy management are all things I am called on to help new puppy owners with.

No matter what your dog’s behavioural issues are, the simple, holistic, kind and dog friendly techniques of Bark Busters works for all dogs, any breed, any age, any problem. You will learn to communicate with your dog and to communicate in a way that your dog will quickly understand. It’s easy and in most cases the transformation can be immediate.

Your dog’s first language is dog language, and all dogs communicate in the language of the dog. They can communicate with other dogs no matter which country they are from. Dog language is a universal language for all dogs. To a dog, human language is their second language, something they have to learn which takes time. And when I see frustration in the household, it’s mostly due to a lack of effective communication.

Seeing the ‘WOW’ moments that regularly occur during the first training session amazes my clients and a big weight is lifted as they realise that their dog was very trainable, and it just needed to understand what they wanted. Some of the dogs I see are thought to be untrainable, their humans have tried everything, and they think they are out of options, but they have not tried Bark Busters.

A recent case of a Kelpie named Coco comes to mind. Coco was banned from Day Care because she was herding the Poodles and would bark all day at anything that moved. Her behaviour was causing her family a lot of stress. They never knew that owning a dog could make them so anxious.

When at home, she would jump on the couch, on her owners, the grandchildren, visitors and relatives. She would bark constantly and was deterring friends from visiting her owner’s home. She would bark if left alone, hence the reason she was being taken to day care. As much as they loved her dearly, they could no longer tolerate her behaviour.

In no time at all, Bark Busters helped her be the beautiful, well-behaved dog she was always meant to be. They love her even more now!

Bark Busters training is unlike anything else you would have tried, it’s an eye-opening experience into how dogs think and why they act the way they do. We teach you how to communicate with your best friend and in no time, you will see just how smart your dog really is, using kind and natural methods.

We turn dogs into ‘thinking dogs’, creating a lasting bond between you and your dog and all using ‘canine communication’.
