Dog-Friendly, Dog Training That Works

A better way to a better dog

Bark Busters NZWelcome to Bark Busters New Zealand, part of the international dog training company founded over 27 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

Conny asks...

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Other

Hi Our Molly recently started growling. It is especially bad in the morning were she also shivers. Now we are not doing anything to her... the first time it happened I was just petting her on the head normally and I thought she is a bit grumpy because it is early and cold ;) so I backed off. She then followed me around wanting me to pet her. During the day the behaviour is non existant. In the evening sometimes but not as bad as the morning. She never curls her lip and sometimes the growl oozes into a moan and sigh. So it is difficult for me to interpret it. If this is not selected as question of the week I am more than happy to book a session with our local Bark Buster.Cheers Conny
