Based on years of studying how dogs interact with each other and years of practical experience solving behaviour problems, Bark Busters founder Sylvia Wilson developed a proprietary technique called Motivational Communication Training (MCT) in Australia over 20 years ago. She identified two keys to effectively solve behaviour problems:
- Communicate with a dog in a language that the dog understands; and,
- Provide trustworthy leadership.
Used exclusively by Bark Busters, this technique uses praise as the positive reinforcement and primary motivator. The focus is on clear communication that is dog-friendly and easy to implement. Nothing motivates a dog like its’ desire to please. By tapping into that innate desire, trainers are able to see results in as little as three hours.
Written Lifetime Guarantee
Bark Busters believes wholeheartedly in their methods which is why they back them up with a Written Lifetime Guarantee. As long as you are following the prescribed plan, their behaviour therapists will return free of charge at any point in your dog’s life if problems reoccur and even if new ones emerge.

They know that one approach will not work with all dogs, so they develop a unique program for your dog based on his or her temperament and what best motivates him or her. Trainers also take into consideration the home environment and lifestyle of the dog owner.It is a very effective program that is easy for your dog to understand and easy for you to implement. The vast majority of clients see significant improvement in the first couple of hours.
In Home Puppy Training
Many of the most frustrating puppy behaviours clients face happen in and around the home. Things like potty training, teachings pups not to eat the furniture, staying out of certain rooms, and crate training all happen in your home. By conducting puppy training in your home trainers are able to deal with these issues right where they are happening. Your pup will make the connection and progress at a much quicker rate compared to offsite classes.In the first session, trainers can also answer all your questions like where he should sleep, what’s the best way to potty train, is crate training a good idea for us, and is my dog’s nipping a sign of aggression or normal? There are many questions you may have and trainers are a great resource for consistent and effective information. This is particularly valuable if you are a first time dog owner. Bark Busters is also unique in that, for a one time fee you essentially have a dog trainer for life to help you as your pup develops. They recognize that the things your pup will learn when it is very young are going to be different to the types of things you want to teach him or her later in life. So we build a program designed to achieve the results you want. Every dog is different; but in typical cases they see puppy clients soon after they first bring their puppy home, again when they are 6-8 months old, and once again when they are 12-16 months old. If your need Bark Busters more, they come to see you more. If problems emerge later in life, they will still come out to help you at no extra charge. It is a great way to develop a great dog. The investment you make early will give you years with a dog that is a joy to spend time with.
