We're Alana and Marco, your local therapists for Bark Buster Home Dog Training Ottawa and 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.
I had been contemplating calling Bark Busters for a good 3 months. I work in a vet clinic and one of the clients came in very impressed with this form of training. I read all the customer comments and everything sounded great. But I thought "we have a dog who tries to herd people and gives a scary bark, they aren't going to be able to stop this, and then I’m going to know for sure that my dog is a hopeless case". Also, a couple months before, the newest dog in the family went from being great with everyone to growling at new people. We pretty much felt hopeless. But I called Bark Busters, and Alana was super nice over the phone and explained what needed to be done, and what they would teach us to do. When Alana came to the house, she was very calming, because I was a little nervous about what she was going to think. Polaris barked and went nuts and she just carried on the conversation and within an hour Polaris was listening to us in the house with Alana walking around, and then the impossible. We had a stranger walking in the backyard with us and Polaris couldn't care less. I was amazed, everything was explained thoroughly, clear and we all felt really comfortable when she left, and knew we could call with any problems/concerns. She also taught me that my timid dog doesn't have to like everyone, and i need to teach him to go to a safe place if he doesn't want to be friends. I feel really comfortable now with people coming into my home because I'm no longer embarrassed about my growling dog, i know how to deal with it properly so as to not make it worse. And I’m sure with continuing training i'll be able to make Seamus feel safe (because i'll be the pack leader) in his home and not feel the need to be nervous. Thank you so much you've made me a believer and I'll recommend you to all those clients coming in with behavioural issues that are putting them at their wits end. I can't thank you enough!

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.

Marco - thank you again for assisting us in changing the family dynamic. I can't tell you how pleased I am to be able to walk my dog without fear of being pulled to the ground. Woody is listening well. Each day we walk alittle farther. Today we met some dogs running loose and children playing with no problem from Woody. Thank you again. I hope you don't mind I have given you name out to a few of my friends.
