Paul Labrum – 18 years of dog training experience!
Mornington Peninsula Dog Expert
Over eighteen years ago I was in need of a new career path, something to get the enthusiasm going again. Not in my wildest dreams had I envisaged dog training as that path.
“I met Paul when Rosie was a puppy and I was a first time dog owner in March 2004. Sadly, Rosie passed away after a long and happy life in June 2018 at the ripe old age of 14 years and 7 months. I purchased the Lifetime Package for Rosie and over the years I did need to contact Paul a couple of times for advice. I got a companion for Rosie and Paul worked with me to ensure that Rosie accepted and enjoyed the presence of a playmate in her castle. Unfortunately this puppy died very young and once again Paul helped me with supporting Rosie through the grief process after the puppy’s passing. I am getting a new puppy in about 4 weeks and I am hoping that Paul will once again help me with training this puppy to be as lovable and well behaved as Rosie was for her 14+ years. I have recommended Barkbusters to many people over the years and I am confident that Paul will train my new puppy as successfully as he did with my beloved and very missed Rosie.”
“After three hours I feel like we have a new dog! Sadie responded to Paul immediately. His manner with her was firm, encouraging and clear. I love the simple commands and signs he has taught me to use with her that are easy to implement. Thanks to Paul, I now have confidence in what to expect from my dog and how to instruct her.”
“I was nervous about the training as I didn’t think Bruno could get help, I have done other training with him and nothing seemed to work. But Paul was fantastic and the way he talked us through what to do was extremely helpful! The way they train is simple and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having dog issues!!”
“Our lesson was done on 2011 and Paul made the techniques easy to understand by explaining the reasons behind them.Milo tried hard to dominate our training for the first 3 days but he came around and responded well. It was most enjoyable which makes it easy to practice. Milo was very dependent with my father who passed away in 2018 and Milo stopped responding to commands after he passed. I called for much needed help (8 years later) and both Milo and I got a helpful refresher visit. We are both back on track and Milo responded well and we are both having fun again! Life of the Dog Guarantee is just fantastic.”
“Paul was amazing! Very informative and able to answer all of my questions. I noticed a significant change in my dogs behaviour throughout the lesson and would recommend him to anybody needing guidance with trainning their dog! Thank you Paul”
“Paul was very patient and profesional. Betty is gorgeous but stubborn. Have already put his training in action and can see an improvement. I like that there is follow up if needed and he has given us a strong basis to follow through with. Well worth the phone call.”
“”My partner and I are very happy with Paul’s service. He’s taught us simple techniques to show our dog that we are the leaders and he can rely on us to make the decisions. We took Balto out for a walk and past some dogs he usually reacts to, however by the end of our walk, he was walking past those dogs, next to us, and not trying to drag me away. Very impressed!”
“Paul was amazing and I feel so blessed to have him come to my household and assist me to learn ‘dog speak’!! My 8 mth old puppy was a nuisance barker and very excitable not listening to commands. Within 1 session of 3hrs, my dog is now looking to me for direction and approval and has not barked at all the usual things that he had previously, such as a bird flying over the backyard! Charlie now seems more relaxed and is not constantly on guard and barking like he was prior to today’s lesson. Thank you Paul!!!”
“Paul was fantastic! 10 minutes into our lesson my dog was sitting & listening to what I was telling him. The techniques that Paul taught me were easy & effective! By the end of our session I had a different dog – the one I’ve always wanted!
I’m so glad I got Paul out to visit us, we will have a much happier family & dog!
“Paul was very professional and polite. He explained everything clearly and showed us techniques to train Nuggie. Nuggie is responding well. Thank you Paul and Bark Busters.”
“With Paul’s guidance I was able to quickly understand where I was going wrong in letting Taz be the leader. Taz and I are now able to communicate in a way that benefits both of us and our new rules and techniques are being picked up very quickly. And who would of known she CAN actually walk on a leash without pulling! Worth every cent, thanks Paul!”
“Very easy and interesting. A whole new dog, very happy. I will recommend to all clients and friends. My vet will also recommend.”
“Paul was fantastic, I would recommend him and Bark Busters to anyone and everyone. Friends and family can’t believe the difference in Abi. She’s a lot calmer now and happier, we all are.”
“The techniques and instructions were easy to understand and follow.”
“Thank you Paul, great to have some successful tools behind us to help us gain a more happier stress free lifestyle.”
“Paul was very well presented and very well spoken. We all felt like we were learning and that we had achieved results on the day by taking time to put into practice. We were all (3 of us) given turns to try the techniques. Thank you Paul!”
“We are delighted with the results from Paul’s training. Yes, you can teach an old dog (9 years old)! Our dog’s main problem was barking when he was excited. This has reduced dramatically. We continue with making Jack sit, stay, stop etc. One time he even sat down at the front door with no command before we went for a walk. We now make him sit when we are out walking and that is coming along well. Practicing the commands followed by praising Jack has changed the home environment absolutely for the better. Thanks Paul. M & K”
“What can l say, thank you” just doesn’t seem enough for what l received in my one on one training session with Paul today. I am forever I indebted to you. The time you spent to explained and educate myself was life changing. I will never have a home with no order again. I have 3 beautiful fur babies.”
