Meet Your Trainer Jakob Mandalinic

Hello there – I am Jakob. 

Your Bark Busters trainer.

Bark Busters are the behavioural experts. Bark Busters is an Australian Company founded and owned company that started in 1989 now operating in 6 countries across the globe.

Being the largest dog training company of its kind in the world, demonstrates that the techniques we have developed here at Bark Busters, do work, are dog friendly and based on the way dogs naturally learn, using no force, no fear and no bribery.

Just an easy to adopt technique both simple and easy to understand for both dog and owner to understand.

You will be amazed at how quick your dog will respond to these kind and natural methods that help you and your dog live a better life together.

I am able to help assist you address any of your dog’s unwanted behaviour or your training needs. I can help you with such things as jumping up, barking, pulling on the leash, leash reactivity, escaping, mouthing, biting, hyperactivity, aggression,, puppy training, sibling rivalry, separation anxiety and more.

Your dog spends most of its time at home, where most issues occur or where the root cause of unwanted behaviour stems from. Bark Busters were the original inventor of training dogs in their home as we identified early on how dogs are far less stressed in their own environment, which means they learn faster.

When I came across the teachings of Danny, Sylvia and Donna, the founders of Bark Busters – dog behavioural experts with over 40 years-experience - that a new world was born. That life didn’t have to be like this. That I could live in harmony with my dogs and more importantly that my dogs could be relieved from their duties as voluntary leaders and I personally witnessed the transformation from an anxious stressful dog to a calmer, healthier dog – a dog that understood its place in the family structure.

When you choose Bark Busters Gold Class Service, you will be covered by our Lifetime Support Guarantee, which guarantees ongoing assistance free of any additional fees for the life of your dog.

I have had dogs most of my life for over 40 years and in all that time I believed that I was the leader of the pack – that they looked up to me as the leader. Never did it occur to me once that when I took my dogs for a walk that when it was in front of me that my dog was walking me. Never did I realise that when my dog brought their ball to me to play that it was telling me when we should play, not the other way round. Never did I realise that when I had friends or family over that my dog was in control by jumping all over them which in some cases friends and family stopped coming over. 

Never did I realise that my dog told me when it wanted to be fed. Never did I realise that when my dog jumped on the couch it was establishing a leadership role.  In fact, my dogs in their early years would chew my furniture, not come to me when called and just didn’t respect me.  Never did I realise amongst other ubiquitous behaviours that all my dogs exhibited in all those years that I was being dictated in an ever-loving way that my dog was the patriarch/matriarch of the family.  Afterall I was human, and they were not. I thought it was the way it was meant to be.  I was taught that a dog was a human’s best friend – just it didn’t seem that way some days. 

There is no secret formula to changing the behaviour of a dog, however, it does go a long way when we can begin to start to ‘speak to our dog in its own language - that’s where the transformation begins. Only then is it possible to teach an old dog new tricks.  The process begins from our first meeting and ends with you the owner to continue the transformation until such time when both you and your beloved dog come to an agreement on how to harmoniously spend the rest of your life together. 

I will be helping you along the journey as needed

I have lived in numerous countries, worked with great people, leaders in their field, such as Gregg Braden, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. John De Martini to mention a few. And that theme continued here closer to home that I had the privilege to work under the guidance of Danny, Sylvia and Donna in teaching myself and others like myself here at Bark Busters that in life anything is possible with commitment, patience, some hard work and an abundance of love. I am grateful to them for being a catalyst in reaching new heights. Teaching an old dog new tricks - arguably the best dog whisperers on the planet today.  

I service the Blue Mountains/Penrith and Sydney West Southwest areas that I serve now in transforming countless families and their dogs for the greater good of the planet one family at a time. As the world is changing as rapid as it may be -I feel it is our duty and obligation to help make the transition as easy as possible for all of us. 

One dog at a time.  For our dogs are the only creature on earth that love us more than they love themselves.
