Our Mission

As a world leader in dog training, Bark Busters' mission is to promote clear communications between owners and their dogs, using simple, effective, and natural training methods that appeal to the canine psyche. Through the professionalism and commitment of our network of dog behavioral therapists, we will work to enhance the human-canine bond and to reduce the possibility of maltreatment, abandonment and euthanasia of companion dogs.

What We Do

We help you understand your dog and communicate with it so it understands you. All dogs will chew, run, nip, bark and enthusiastically jump all over you, but with Bark Busters training, the dog will learn to modify its behaviour so it does what you want it to do. This is how we create happier families and happier dogs.

Bark Busters home dog obedience training therapists use techniques to encourage the dog to use his brain and, at the same time, to satisfy the dog's need for pack leadership. In the wild, dogs have a pecking order determined by a dog's dominance within the group. Problem or disobedient dogs are the result of dogs perceiving themselves to be higher up the pecking order.

Bark Busters home dog obedience training therapists put owners back in control using non-physical, quick and easy methods that their pooches and puppies need.

Bark Busters home dog obedience training therapists come to your home where your dog is more relaxed and open to learning. We teach you how to train your dog through effective use of your voice tones and body language.

Bark Busters therapists in Japan and worldwide wish to help families enjoy their pets by providing dog behavioural therapy and dog obedience training using natural, holistic and humane techniques in the dog's home.

About Bark Busters Japan

Chie Kawazoe

Hi, my name is Chie Kawazoe and I am the Director of Bark Busters Japan. I have always had a passion for dogs and I now have the best job in the world.

When I lived in Sydney I bought a pug and named him Rambo. That is him in the photo. His name unfortunately was a good indicator of his character. he was very outgoing (read pulled the lead), not quiet (read barked a lot), strong willed (read didn't listen to us) and so on.

I needed help and a friend recommended Bark Busters. I was amazed by how much I learned from the Bark Busters therapist in just the first lesson. We soon got Rambo under controI and I thought Wow! What a great system. I would love to be a Bark Busters therapist one day.

That day came when I was planning to return to Japan. I contacted Danny and Sylvia Wilson the founders of Bark Busters and asked about their plans to expand to Japan. The rest is history. After six months of intensive training at Bark Busters Head Office I moved here to start Bark Busters Japan.

Now everyday I am either helping clients live happier lives with their dogs or I am helping my fellow therapists enjoy their new profession too.

If you have a wayward pooch give us a call. I look forward to helping you too.

About the Founders

Bark Buster Founders Danny and Sylvia Wilson

Bark Busters was founded in Australia in 1989 by renowned behaviour therapists Danny and Sylvia Wilson. Their vision was to save as many dogs as possible from being surrendered to shelters or euthanised because of behaviour problems which were seemingly impossible to solve. Since then, Bark Busters has touched the lives of over 500,000 dogs.

Sylvia was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK and emigrated to Australia with her parents at the age of 5. Danny was born in Australia but was brought up near Newcastle-upon-Tyne and left for Australia when he was 26. It was years later when Sylvia was managing an RSPCA branch that she first met Danny. They realised there must be a way to stop dogs being returned to the shelter because of their behaviour, and that's how Bark Busters came into being.

Bark Busters has now grown to be the largest and most trusted dog training company in the world, with trained therapists helping dogs in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the UK, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Israel, France and Belgium.
