Philippa Dakin, Bark Busters Behavioural Therapist

Hi, I’m Philippa Dakin your local Behaviour Therapist & Trainer for BARK BUSTERS HOME DOG TRAINING, Shoalhaven & Eurobodella Region.

I can’t remember any time in my life when I haven’t been involved with dogs. I have worked in the animal care industry for over 20 years as a qualified equestrian coach, veterinary nurse and canine behavioural therapist. I bring a wide spectrum of experience to Bark Busters.
It is incredibly rewarding to work with people and their dogs – to give owners the knowledge and skills to be good, kind leaders for their dogs. Our unique system is based on how dogs communicate and learn naturally. It is not a quick fix button, but a training program that works effectively and quickly with some minor maintenance from the owners. We don’t try and make the dogs think like humans, we teach the owners to see things from the dog’s perspective.

I come to your home at a day and time that suits you to conduct the In-Home Dog Training with you and your dog/s, as this is where most of their bad behaviour occurs. Then I leave you with a ‘Life of the Dog’ Support Guarantee, which means there is ongoing assistance, free of charge, if further help is required.
Collectively at Bark Busters, we have helped over one million dogs to go on to lead happy, fulfilled lives as well-behaved members of their pack.

Does your dog jump up on your visitors? Nuisance bark? Have toileting issues? Behave aggressively towards other dogs or even people? These are just some of the issues I help clients solve every day.
Say goodbye to unwanted behaviour. Any dog, any age, any issue. Call me and see the difference.
