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.

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.

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! Thankyou 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.

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!!

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!!!

Hi Paul,

Hope you are well. I am just following up as we were meant to touch base about making a time to come visit. At this stage with the dogs we are travelling along well and I don't see the need for you to come out for a visit - which is a good thing! Your first visit last year helped us so much. Our dogs Minnie and Lola have settled well. I will keep in touch with you in the future if any other issues may arise that we need help with.

Thanks so much Paul,

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, 2 are my daughter's and l is mine. I thought l had everything under control until we adopted our 11 month old blind poodle. My home was turned into complete chaos, both boys hating the newest addition and causing absolute stress. I soon realized it was time to gain my control back in home, so after our yearly check up with my Local Vet who highly recommended Paul, that's all the convincing l needed to call and book in my training session. Paul spent a total of 5hrs at my home, educating and training myself as well as our boys. I never once felt l had a time limit, my training would take as long as it needed, said Paul. I can't thank you enough Paul, for teaching me how to be the Alpha Dog in my home and to restore order and harmony back into my home. I highly recommend Bark Busters you certainly will not be disappointed with their service, money definitely well spend. I am one very satisfied customer.

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.

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!

Thanks Paul.

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!

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!

Paul I would just like to thank you once again for a wonderful training session. I just can't believe how quick your techniques worked and are still working! It's not just Fleur but I think the two younger dogs must have been eaves dropping! As soon as we say that magical word there is silence and they all come over for praise! We haven't even tried to do any extra training! People have gone past, dogs across the road barking, and either they ignore or if they start just a little correction and all is quiet! Moppy the old girl needs to learn who is boss still lol! I really thank you, you have given us a good basis on how to finally have dogs who listen to us and not drive us crazy! I have already highly recommended Bark Busters to friends and family who know what stresses I have had particularly with Fleur! Thanks so much Paul! Huge puppy hugs

I found the approach Paul used with myself and my husband to be very collaborative. He worked and talked with us to understand our current situation and how best to resolve it. He was very positive and honest in letting us know when we were not quite on track. Thanks Paul and Bark Busters - Charlie is well on the way to changing his behaviour.

Prior to Paul Labrum's visit, my 2 year old Airedale Terrier Dougal, was a loving but unruly dog. He completely dominated everything and everyone. In short, he was an unholy terror. However, within minutes of meeting him, Paul had Dougal under control. He gave us a thorough outline of what Bark Busters was about, before discussing with us our own wishes regarding Dougal. He then issued a simple, but effective command to Dougal, who responded beautifully. From then on, we witnessed our dog change from being wildly disobedient to waiting to please. After Paul's visit, which lasted a good 3 hours, we knew there were still challenges to be faced. By nature, Airedales are very intelligent, but also pushy. However, within a few hours of Paul's visit, we got Dougal wanting to obey our rules. He is a much happier, far less vigilant dog. Now that he knows his place in the family, he's more secure, and easier to deal with. Many thanks Paul and Bark Busters, for giving us back our beloved Dougal!
