What is the HusherTM
The HusherTM is a very simple but effective training aid. It is made from stretchable elastic, with webbing around the elastic to limit the expansion of the dog's snout. The elastic exerts a firm yet humane pressure around the snout, similar to that applied by a canine pack leader to maintain dominance.
As the dog goes to bark whilst wearing the HusherTM, the controlled expansion of training aid tires the muscles very easily. After a few short barks, dogs find it easier and less tiresome not to exhibit nuisance behaviour.
This amount of pressure though still allows your pet to breathe (from both the front and back of the mouth), pant, drink and eat with ease.
The neck strap is attached to the elastic and webbing at three points, which makes it very difficult for the dog to remove the HusherTM. The straps are attached to a buckle which clips at the back of the dog's head.

"Hi - I don't usually send emails to companies however HUSHER has truly made a HUGE difference for my hubbie and I. Our two dogs Nitro (Beagle) and Jazz (Australian Kelpie) would bark and we were almost at the point of having to give them away (neighbours and stress of the barking). We have tried training, exercise, kong ball (toy), citronella spray, e-collar (we were desperate), ultrasonic sound etc. Husher is the best and most humane way to train our dogs not to bark (nuisance barking for no reason). Thank you for helping us have a peaceful neighbourhood and also a great product that truly works! Plus we don't have to think about giving our dogs away!”
"Ollie the big Beardy cross pig dog who was expelled from the pig dog pack for being such a lousy hunter and ended up at the SPCA. He has some anxiety issues and barks in a shrill nonstop fashion when with us. Today he wore our only Husher – and we had blissful silence within an hour. We had volunteers going outside regularly to praise and reward him with our “quietly” voice and hand signal during this time. As you can see from the photo he has charismatic Walt Disney style looks – with personality plus – a real cool dude. Most of our dogs go from foster homes to an adopting family at the end of our 8 week course so its important for them that they have no annoying habits –like nonstop barking – which destroy the success of the placement."
Marguerite Besier,Dog trainer for the Nelson Ark,New Zealand.
“Lots of dog owners, it seems, have well-loved dogs who are well trained, but when it comes to excessive barking it can drive them and their neighbours mad. We have had several people come….and say that the Husher has saved them from having their dogs taken away by the Environmental Health Department. This is the product that everyone has been waiting for.”
Steve Roby, Happy Pet Products Ltd.
"On the recommendation of our vet we began using the Husher and immediately it was a huge success. Because of the way the Husher is constructed, our dog could still drink and eat, but could no longer chew and rip apart all of our belongings."
Pat Steel, Dog Owner
“As a breeder of Giant dogs, I would heartily recommend the Husher as a humane and common sense approach to training a dog to stop nuisance barking and as an effective tool in safe breeding.”
Dave Swift, Dog Breeder
"At ISIS International our service focuses primarily on training police service dogs and behaviour management programs for aggressive dogs.
The Husher has provided us with the means to more effectively address behaviour issues such as aggression, barking and biting. In the past we have been restricted with muzzle apparatuses, halters, etc that are not only ineffective but as a rule encouraged aggression, and in some cases severe depression and other related anxiety. The Husher permits us to work with the dog without suppressing or intensifying drives (behaviours). Delineating the many benefits of the Husher for the professional is clearly beyond the scope of the letter.”
Kurt Suss, Illicit Substances Interdiction Services (Canada)
“The results with The Husher were amazing, within a couple of days we only needed to show Hunter the Husher and he would stop barking. We even found it helpful to control his behaviour in so many ways. We sometimes use it for a couple minutes to settle him down for bed and take it to the vets with us for appointments. Even if he won’t listen to an instruction, we show him the Husher and he listens immediately. It is truly a fantastic product that is affordable and in no way is inhumane to our dog in anyway. Thank You, this product has been a life saver!” ”

Barking Problems... Solved!
Your dog may bark for a variety of reasons. If your dog is acting uncontrollably, behaving badly, and barking for your attention, The HusherTM is here to help!
Different Barking Situations
- Attention seeking
- Barking at cars or in traffic
- Barking while interacting with other animals
- Barking while out for a walk
- Neighbourhood disturbances
- Pedestrians and general public
Barking At Dogs
If your dog barks at other dogs while you are out walking, you can prevent this barking behaviour by using The Husher. You can also help reduce your dog's aggressive, fearful or excitable behaviour when around other animals by preventing eye contact between them. Train your dog to focus on you in these situations and reward your dog when it behaves calmly in the presence of other dogs.
Barking at People
Dogs commonly bark at people entering their territory. The HusherTM will prevent excessive barking at neighbourhood disturbances, cars and pedestrians. Remember to reward your dog's quiet behaviour whenever possible. If you have any concerns that your dog may be aggressive towards people you should seek expert help.
Barking When Left Alone
If your dog barks when left alone, The HusherTM may be effective in reducing or stopping this barking. Many dogs bark when alone because they are bored or because they are stressed and want to communicate with their family. It is preferable to treat these issues in addition to using The HusherTM.
The HusherTM can help to also reduce other unwanted behaviours apart from barking, including aggression, biting and stress. Because dogs bark for many different reasons, it is important to understand why your dog is barking and you may be able to stop or reduce the barking much faster. If your dog does seem to be in physical or psychological pain, visit your veterinarian for advice.
The HusherTM is scientifically proven to be 100% Humane!
