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.
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!!!
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,
Hi Paul, thanks for coming yesterday, we have a completely new dog !Murphy had got a bit too, he is listening, coming when we call him, hardly barks, we can go for a swim and sit outside and eat in peace with Murphy around us, such a big change. we wish you and your family a nice Christmas, Anke Sent from my iPhone
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. M & K
Paul was very professional and polite. He explained everything clearly and showed us techniques to train Nuggie . Nuggie is responding well . Thank you Paul and Bark Busters.
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!
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!
Thank you Paul, great to have some successful tools behind us to help us gain a more happier stress free lifestyle.
Thank you so much Paul for a revisit after so long with Axel!! A refresher on what we were doing wrong was what we needed and hopefully our lives will get back on track again and we can enjoy our beautiful boy Axel again with our new baby Archer. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!
Very easy and interesting. A whole new dog, very happy. I will recommend to all clients and friends. My vet will also recommend.
The techniques and instructions were easy to understand and follow.
Paul was very professional and polite. He explained everything clearly and showed us techniques to help train Amaya. Amaya learnt a lot in a couple of hours which I thought was very quick. We also learnt a lot. Excellent trainer :)
The cost worried me as I'm a single stay at home mum, but I am so glad I did it. Paul was fantastic.
We were made to realise all the different ways in which we were making Huey feel that he had to be the leader. Very informative and easy to understand.
Bark Busters methods are very friendly and Paul was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire experience.
Good afternoon well spent learning how to understand the dog and vice versa.
I was amazed at what a short training session could achieve.
Paul was fantastic, I would recommend him and Bark Busters to anyone and everyone. Friends and family can't believe the difference in Abi. She's a lot calmer now and happier, we all are.
I couldn't believe the immediate results. Penny responded so well to Paul's technique that following through with daily training was easy. Penny has stopped barking and much less anxious. Thanks so much!
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
Paul made it easy and was very friendly. Onyxx now walks beside me with
Thanks a lot for helping us and teaching us a lot.
I would recommend Bark Busters to everyone. I couldn't believe the change in my dog in just 3 hours. Friends, family and neighbours are as astounded as I am.
We were amazed at how easily the three dogs came under our control. The training techniques are simple and effective.
Bark Busters training should be a must for all dog owners. My only regret is that I didn't start when she was a Puppy.
I was very impressed; Paul was calm and in control. He explained everything to me, even a few times when I needed it. And MOST importantly, he didn't make me feel like a bad dog owner.
Paul was excellent. We noticed immediate improvement in our dog. We liked the holistic approach- diet assessment, behaviour and simple tactics. So easy!!!
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.
I found Paul to be fantastic with the methods that he showed me. Although I have a very dominant dog, the last two days Bronson has calmed down, stopped jumping and is slowly stopping the nipping. Thanks heaps!
It was great to see how simple yet effective this training is. Now the two of us are on the same page and are more confident with the skills we have learnt. Gypsie is all the better for it.
I have continued to train my dog with great success. He seems a lot calmer and happier knowing who is in charge. Paul was fantastic, very helpful and you could see he had an interest in the dog and not just telling us what to do.
Very effective. My dog is responding well and Paul was fantastic with him and us! There is significant room for improvement and by maintaining Bark Busters training we will achieve this. Thank you!
The training session was highly worthwhile. Thanks to Paul for his great manner in helping both us and our dog.
We were amazed at how it worked. We were a bit skeptical, but now we are in charge of our dogs, not them in charge of us. Our family can't believe how obedient Penny is now. We would recommend Bark Busters to anyone. Absolutely brilliant! Paul was excellent and very helpful and clear in his training and explanation.
10 hours in - Liv and I have begun the first day of our new Bark Busters life together. I feel like I have a new dog. Clearly my leadership was the problem, and now Liv has the chance to be the very best dog I know she can be! What an amazing and beneficial experience for us... money well spent. Thank you so much!
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!
Truly amazing, would not have believed it if I do not see it with my own 2 eyes, instant results.
I found Paul Labrum to be a great help and calming influence on both Layla and myself. The techniques explained are simple and easy to implement.
Not only did we learn how to properly interact with our dogs, we also obtained the confidence to take them into any situation and know we would remain in control. We are now enjoyably taking our dogs for a walk everyday without it being a constant battle.
Paul was fantastic! He really helped me start to take control of my dog and gave me the knowledge to continue training him. Willow has been a lot calmer now and not so loud.
