Hi, we are your dog training experts. Glen Guelfi and Maureen have been with Bark Busters for the past 14 years. Glen started first as a full-time trainer and was joined by Maureen many years later. In this time, they have seen a lot of problems with dogs that can be solved simply by doing things the dog understands. So, we coin the phrase SPEAKING DOG.
The dog responds well because it understands what you are trying to say and do. Glen found his love for animals growing up with many around him. He said, “We had at one stage 3 dogs, an Afghan, Doberman cross and very cute little Pug. Amongst all this we also had 16 cats at one time, so I learnt at a young age to appreciate dogs and cats. I didn’t get my first dog until I was older and had a family of my own. We adopted a little blue heeler named Jackson. He soon became the most important thing to me. My wife said I loved the dog more than her (not true of course but still)”.
Glen’s father was a Bark Busters’ trainer and he thought Glen would do well in the business as he had a great love for dogs. When a franchise became available, Glen jumped at it with both hands. 14 years ago, and his still loving what he does.
Maureen joined the Bark Busters team a few years ago. We often sit around and talk about the dogs we see on a daily basis and how they can be transformed before the owner’s eyes, using the very friendly Bark Busters approach. We hope we can come and help you out with your dog as well. So, we look forward to hearing from you so we can help your dog together.

Meet Emma Reeves, the areas I cover are Rockingham & Peel Regions!
Hi, I’m Emma Reeves, your local Bark Busters Dog Behaviour Therapist and Trainer for the Rockingham & Peel region. I cover the area from Oakford and Wandi, to Clifton and Coolup and all the places in between, including Byford, Mandurah, Jarrahdale and Serpentine.
We all love our dogs, but most have a few naughty behaviours that can frustrate us. Does your dog:
Jump all over you and anyone else it gets close enough to?
Think it is taking you for a walk and drags you all around the neighbourhood?
Bark at any and everything, no matter what the time is?
Not come when called?
Have separation anxiety?
Become aggressive to other dogs or other people?
Many dog owners put up with these and many other bad habits simply because they believe them to be typical dog behaviour. Using Bark Busters methods and techniques, I can help you to eradicate the stress from dog ownership.
Bark Busters have helped over 1,000,000 dogs worldwide, during the last 31 years and were the first to offer the Lifetime Support Guarantee.
No matter the breed, age, and problem using Bark Busters humane and non-physical methods I can show you how to teach your dog the rules of your home, what’s allowed and what’s not, in a way they can understand.
I look forward to helping you and your dog on the journey to happiness. Let’s unleash your dogs’ good behaviour together.

Meet Catharina Jeffery, the areas I cover are Bunbury & South West!
As a qualified behavioural therapist, my passion is to help owners get the best from their dogs, whether they be 8 weeks old or 18 years old. My goal is to teach you how to gain your dog’s focus, in turn helping them become calmer and more relaxed.
One to one training is vital to helping you set up a foundation based on respect, trust and communication. I will help you to ‘Speak Dog’ and coach you through the fundamentals of canine communication. This will give you a better understanding of your dog and his behaviour while also giving you the key to a positive training experience with fast results.
I run specialised in-home puppy training programs, including pre-puppy training to help you get things organised before your pup comes home.
Training an adult dog does not have to be hard… Whether a new rescue dog, an older dog who is set in his ways or even an adolescent puppy testing the boundaries, training can be fun, engaging and above all else practical.
Issues like recall, pulling on the lead, jumping and nuisance barking can all be addressed through our training programs. I also help many owners with more in-depth behavioural issues such as aggression, separation anxiety and sibling rivalry. You can find out more by visiting ‘Our Services’.
Bark Busters Training comes with your choice of a One Year Guarantee or our Lifetime Support Guarantee giving you peace of mind that you will receive the on-going support that every owner and dog needs.
Please contact me to chat about your dog’s training options and how I can help you to bring the best out in your dog.
