All Bark Busters trainers are personally trained by Barb Cooke, Bark Busters Canada’s Director of Training. This is a rigorous and intensive program involving classroom study, observation, advanced dog handling, practical advanced behaviour problem solving, and written, oral, and practical testing. This is all done face to face (unlike many training schools that are correspondence, video, or webinar based).
We hold ourselves to a very high standard, and only when we know our students have met our standards are they permitted to operate as a Bark Busters Behaviour Therapist and Trainer. Their training is continually upgraded and their performance monitored by our head office.
In the situation where they run into a particularly challenging case, they have at their disposal the knowledge base of our head office, the other 25 trainers in Bark Busters Canada, and the 252 Bark Busters trainers around the world. This immense resource means we will always do our best to find a solution for even the most difficult cases.
