Bark Busters was started in Australia in 1989 by Sylvia and Danny Wilson, expert dog trainers and authors of many dog training books. Sylvia was head of an RSPCA shelter and studied the behavior and communication methods of dogs for years. She was saddened by the number of dogs she saw being maltreated, abandoned and euthanized for behavioral problems, which she knew was due to a lack of consistent leadership. This became the basis for creating Bark Busters unique, naturalistic and holistic training techniques.
Originated in Australia these techniques have propelled Bark Busters' phenomenal growth worldwide. It has been operating in the U.S. since June 2000 - now the world's largest dog training company with more than 320 offices worldwide, including 240+ offices in the USA.
