Bark Busters was founded in Australia in 1989 by Sylvia Wilson, a former manager of an animal shelter, and her husband, Danny. Wilson's aim was to create a program that would help owners better deal with their dog's behavior problems. The Wilsons began franchising their in-home obedience training service in Sydney, Australia in 1994, eventually expanding the system into New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States (where they began franchising in 2000).

Top Dogs Wanted
Are you the leader of the pack? Imagine being taught the secrets to train a dog in only two hours, to change completely its behavior, and to provide a previously stressed household with peaceful bliss. Bark Busters is a tremendous opportunity for you to make a difference in your own life and in the lives of dogs and people everywhere.
We Are Looking For Entrepreneurs Who:
- are passionate about business and dogs
- desire a flexible lifestyle

A Huge Industry - Growing Faster Than Ever
The market for dog training services is enormous. Dog owners are willing to pay for effective, quality services, not only for their own benefit, but also out of respect for their neighbors. A dog behaving badly is socially unacceptable. This demand creates a unique recession-resistant industry that will continue to grow each year.
- The pet industry is the 7th largest industry in the US (bigger than jewelry, candy, toys, or hardware industries)
- Americans spend over $42 billion on their pets each year, with projected spending at over $52 billion by 2010
- There are 70 million dogs in the US today (and most need training!)
Bark Busters is positioned as the industry leader, with NO direct competitors of similar scale.
As the world's largest dog training company,
Bark Busters are the undisputed leaders of the pack.
