Good day,

We're Alana and Marco, your Bark Buster dog trainers in Ottawa and the surrounding area. Six years ago we became part of the Bark Busters family and since then we’ve had the pleasure to help over 1000 families overcome issues with their dog from puppy training though to severe anxiety and aggression cases.

We care a lot about dogs and we also care very much about serving our clients very well. It is important to us that we treat both human and canines with the respect and consideration they deserve. In fact, our clients have referred more of their friends to us than any other Bark Buster office in Canada.

To talk about your dog and to see how we could help you, please contact us at our toll free number or email us using the form below.

We’ve seen so many of our clients transform their relationship with their dog with our help. There is nothing we find more satisfying. Once the frustrating behaviours are dealt with, good dogs can become GREAT dogs.

Owner: Amy & Jeff
Review: The initial assessment was clear, concise and fully geared towards what we want out of our dog. Our trainer took the time to develop a good understanding and picture of our dog and our relationship with her. It didn't feel rushed, it was very positive, and we never felt blamed or judged.

Review: Our dog is so much happier since we started with BB. He "got it" right away, and now he's teaching us how to help him. We can't believe the difference after one visit. Thanks, Alana, from us and from Scooter.
