In-home dog training

In-home Dog Training

Are you the leader of the pack? Imagine being taught the secrets to train a dog in only two hours, completely changing its behavior, and providing a previously stressed household with peaceful bliss. Bark Busters is a tremendous opportunity for you to make a difference in your own life and in the lives of dogs and people everywhere.

A Huge Industry - Growing Faster Than Ever

The market for dog training services is enormous. Dog owners are willing to pay for effective, quality services, not only for their own benefit, but also out of respect for their neighbors. A dog behaving badly is socially unacceptable. This demand creates a unique recession-resistant industry that will continue to grow each year. Our unique methodology was developed based on the natural psychology of dogs, and has earned the SPCA International Award of "Best Trainers" - an award that no other trainers have ever received. As the world's largest dog training company, Bark Busters are the undisputed leaders of the pack. 

Bark Busters was founded in 1989 by Sylvia and Danny Wilson in Wollongong, Australia, 50 miles south of Sydney.  Bark Busters has now expanded into over 40 states with 255+ franchises in the US and over 420 franchises across 10 countries including Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Israel, Canada, and here in the United States.

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
