About Damon

Best Dog Training in Round Rock, Austin & Pflugerville!

Welcome! I am Damon Britton, your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Round Rock. If you have a misbehaving dog, I have been in your shoes. My wife and I adopted an English Staffordshire terrier from a rescue center who was out of control. We seriously considered re-homing him because no type of training could curb his behaviors. And believe me we tried! It wasn't until we called Bark Busters were we able to totally transform Bubba's behavior.

This experience was life changing for me, because I decided to join the Bark Busters dog training team as well and I am now a Master Trainer for Bark Busters Round Rock. I have worked as a volunteer with shelters all of my life and it broke my heart to see dogs abandoned because of problem behaviors.

Now I have the solution and I am confident I can apply this method to your dog as well. With a little bit of practice and establishing yourself as the 'leader of the pack', your relationship with your dog will totally change.

I teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs learn how to communicate with each other as a member of a pack when they are first born. That's why it's so important you don't remove a puppy from its Mom before eight weeks. Dogs learn to talk to each other using voice tones and body language! The sounds of their growl or bark, the stance of their legs, the fur on their backs, and the position of their tail are all indicators. Bark Busters teaches you to communicate with your dogs using voice tones and body language, exactly how dogs naturally converse.

I only use positive methods. You don't see a puppy's Mama handing out treats when one of her litter has done something good. Conversely, you don't see her using shock collars or prong collars. That's exactly why Bark Busters uses only positive, natural humane methods. Also, hitting a dog can breed further aggression.

You will see immediate results. Our first lesson will last approximately 2 - 3 hours and give me time to observe your dog in his own 'den'. Our training is conducted in your home because this is where most issues occur and where your dog is most comfortable. Together we'll develop a customized plan to address YOUR dog's specific issues. You will be amazed how quickly your dog's behaviors start changing - before I am even out the door!

Any Dog. Because all dogs speak the same language, our dog training system works for any dog, any age, any issue! Puppies and their owners can start off on the right paw, eliminating behavior issues before they can even start, and old dogs can learn new tricks. Rescue dogs, shelter dogs, puppies and senior dogs - we love them all.

I am often called in when other methods have failed. Like myself who went through three trainers before I found Bark Busters, I am often called in because we are one of the few companies that can tackle the tough issues such as aggression, separation anxiety and more!

I am passionate about what I do and I know firsthand it works. It is so great to change the lives of dog owners who are struggling with their dog's behavior. I love to see their look of amazement when they 'connect' with their dog. Don't give up on your dog! Please call me first!

Round Rock Austin Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Damon was a great source of insight for us and in a single session changed the way we think about our relationship with Peabody. It's been an incredibly positive experience that is leading to a much healthier relationship with our pup. Highly recommended!
I had the great opportunity to work with Damon from Bark Busters to help with my dog Tobi with training. Damon is a really great instructor with clear communication and very informative. The session focused on getting to the root cause of some of the habits Tobi was doing such as his separation anxiety, barking and demands. Most of the other training methods I tried did not focus on this, and this is one big differentiator.

The lesson was structured very well, and did not feel too long or too short. It had specific exercises to help alleviate the issues we are trying to control. The training method they use is different and is focused on communicating with your dog. This is another reason why I was really interested and impressed with this type of training.

I was really impressed with the effectiveness of this training. After going through just a few days of the training which Damon showed us, Tobi was adjusting really quick. It was impressive to see our dog change his behavior after the first day, and also progressively get better over the next few days.

I would definitely recommend this service to anyone who is looking to train their dog or look for help on separation anxiety/barking. It is exceptional!
Damon was so helpful and spent a lot of time with us. He explained everything clearly and gave us next steps to work on. We look forward to continuing our journey with him and Bark Busters!
Damon did a great job during our session, which actually end up with us being trained, not the dogs! He explained in detail how to communicate effectively with our girls, and we have seen dramatic improvement in their behavior, simply because we understand each other so much better. They now see my husband and I as the "alphas" in the house, and follow our leads. Recall has been a massive issue with us, but after the session we had they are already responding so much better! We look forward to further sessions to focus on our other goals, and are confident that Damon will continue to be a great resource!
Damon was very friendly and helpful. He took the time to clearly explain the program, took a detailed history, and devised a plan specific to our needs. Molly struggles with “stranger danger”, but within 10 minutes of meeting Damon she was best friends with him. It’s clear Damon cares about dogs of all types and dispositions. I’m looking forward to the progress we can make together.
After our first session with Damon, we started seeing immediate results with the way our dog was responding to us. He was no longer jumping on me, not being as demanding, and his demeanor began changing within a week. It was clear we were quickly “moving up in the pack.” This is a totally different approach than our previous training experience, and this program actually works without treats or shock collars. Damon took his time explaining & delivering so much information about the relationship between dogs and humans. He was very patient in answering all my questions and willing to discuss all the different scenarios that I could come up with. He has also been extremely responsive to all my emails with follow-up questions. It is clear that Damon truly wants the best for us and our pup. We will continue our homework regimen and look forward to working through leash training & car ride anxiety in the future.
Damon is an outstanding dog trainer. The insight and advice he offered has had immediate results on our dogs, even after the first day, and we feel very good about the plan moving forward. His demeanor was friendly, polite, and professional. Our interactions were very enjoyable. I believe he knows what he is talking about, and knows how to deliver that information. I’m very glad to have Damon as my dogs’ trainer. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Damon is such a wealth of knowledge. He gave us clear, tangible tips on how to correct sibling rivalry in our home with our 2 dogs. Even after 1 day of implementing his instructions, our dogs have not barked or jumped and are listening to our commands. We love them so much and it is very clear that Damon does too and wants the best for them. We feel really encouraged with his instructions and are eager to see how their behaviors continue to change in the future.

Damon was so kind and thoughtful. He gave us lots of information to better understand how our dogs are responding to us, and tools to work through various situations we're dealing with. The approach is amazing - it's about communication and leadership, not just using treats to bribe your dog.

Our first visit went VERY well. I look forward to putting to work all the commands and the structure for Dudley Pup.
Very good training. Instant results. From the dogs point of view.
My two dogs had an immediate same-day response to the training that's only gotten better with practice. The guidelines have been so helpful that my Australian Shepherd mix's separation anxiety has been totally resolved after just one visit and a few days of training in other areas to alleviate his anxiety. There's still more we have to work on, but there's already a world of difference after only a week.
We have only had our first visit with Damon and it was less than 24 hours ago. I was at the end of my rope with one my dogs aggression towards the others and wasn't sure what we were going to have to do and my heart was breaking. Another one of our dogs is a bit older and barks a lot, the last is a 5 month old puppy, so i dont have to explain her issues. They are all large breed. Damon explained everything so clearly to us in our home so we have the instructions to correct their behaviors. We know we have work to do to keep their progress going but we are absolutely stunned at how much our 3 dogs have started listening more and behaving better, literally night and day. My husband and I cannot stop talking about it. Without hesitation, we would recommend this program to anyone that needs help with their dogs.
Damon spent an afternoon with my wife and me - so much good information shared that we are able to use immediately - and the tips and advice helped with immediate behavior change for our 9 yr. old Chocolate Lab
Damon was a pleasure to work with. After our first session, we immediately noticed improvements with our Golden Retriever puppy. We look forward to working with Damon further!
We have seen great improvements even after the first meeting! Significantly less barking, jumping, and entrance/exits.
Our first lesson was amazing as it produced great results
Damon is absolutely amazing! He spent enough time with me to teach me how to handle Jasmine, my exuberant labradoodle. I recommend him to anyone who is in need of dog training lessons. You will not be disappointed!
We had a great training session with Damon coming to our home a little over a week ago! He was patient and took time to explain Milo's behavior (barking at and jumping up on guests) and how we can better communicate with him to show him he doesn't have to be in charge. Since our training session we have been consistent in our training and Milo has showed some major improvement! We still have a ways to go to improve, but we have been nothing but impressed and hopeful that we can create a calm environment for guests moving forward and show Milo that visitors are not scary. Can't wait to have Damon back out to continue working soon!
We really enjoyed having Damon at our home. He was knowledgeable and very patient with us and our pups. He took the time to listen to all our concerns and explain the best training process for our family. During and after the visit, with practice, our pups are getting better with each day that goes by. We are hopeful they will become the happiest, best versions of themselves with time. We look forward to working with Damon in the future!
We were amazed by the immediate results. It really gives us hope, that with consistency, she can become a confident dog.
Damon is great! Me and my boyfriend adopted Sophie from the animal center. Her main issues were leash pulling and aggression towards other animals but we still wanted to give her a chance as she’s so loving to humans! I haven’t been able to take her outside by myself but after the first session with Damon I felt confident enough to try. He taught us various methods to help keep her in control on the leash. We have some homework to do but I’m able to bring her outside myself and that’s a huge step for only having one lesson! Me, my boyfriend & Sophie are excited to continue working with Damon so Sophie can become the happiest pup she can be!
Damon was really great at helping Bella and I get started with her training. Bella is a boxer/retriever with some pit bull in her. She is strong and liked to pull me around everywhere when on leash. Now she is much better at walking beside me on a loose leash. She also goes to the bedroom when someone comes to the door. She would not get in the car until Damon showed me to get in first and have her come. We started with that and now she jumps in when I tell her to. I love that everything is written down for me ... so if I forget I can refresh!
Damon is an excellent trainer; he explained the training well and provided good tips to communicate with our puppy based on his observations in the first session. I saw a difference within a week. I genuinely believe that we will have a well-behaved pup with training consistency and commitment in no time. Thank you!!!
