Dog-Friendly, Dog Training That WorksA better way to a better dog
Welcome to Bark Busters Australia, part of the international dog training company founded over 30 years ago. Bark Busters founders Sylvia and Danny Wilson have refined a method of dog obedience training that makes dog training easy and accessible to all. With Bark Busters, you work directly with a dog trainer in your own home using a method that takes into account the unique challenges you're facing and then fosters a positive relationship between you and your dog. This method enables you to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect, which in turn aids in overcoming past challenges with your pet. Bark Busters dog trainers focus heavily on training people, as much or more as training dogs, so that once you learn to communicate effectively with your dog, you will have the necessary tools to be an effective dog trainer and "leader of his/her pack."
Bark Busters do not use shock, electronic, choker or pronged collars
Natural approach to dog training
Once you’ve assumed your role as pack leader, all you will need is consistency and the natural techniques taught by Bark Busters to reinforce and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Bark Busters dog trainers can show you how to transform a "problem dog" into a happy lifelong buddy...
The best start in life puppy training
Puppies need guidance in the form of puppy obedience training in order to learn good manners and develop a pleasant, obedient nature. While it’s true that puppies receive much of their socialisation from their mothers and litter mates in the first 12 weeks of life, as your puppy you will pick up where mother dog left off.
Lifetime Support Guarantee
The Bark Busters worldwide home dog training support guarantee is unique in the industry. It is designed to help owners resolve their dog's behaviour and obedience problems and to provide customers with the satisfaction of ongoing support and peace of mind from their Bark Busters trainer.

And I want to stop it we currently have 3 dogs, jc 3 zuko 10 months and Fergie 4months Fergie is German Shepard and the only girl but I’m afraid if zuko teaches her this aggression and attack she will begin to do it aswell zuko is only a temporary visitor he will only stay with us for a week every now and then when my brother is away for work, i feel like the fighting starts when all three are together and it’s over food, beds or someone gets a bit close and personal and somebody else snaps. Fergie doesn’t get involved she usually runs away shreaking at the top of her voice or will stand at a distance and just bark a lot please help me I don’t want my brothers dog to kill my dog!

Dogs are with us for just a short period of our lives and yet, during that time, they become a major part of our family. Many people would describe the attachment they feel towards their dog as just as strong, if not stronger, than that felt towards some human relatives. Read more…
