meet your specialist trainer Jean Atwood
Bark Busters Home Dog Training West Minneapolis, MN
Our dog has shown fantastic improvement under Jean's training. In only a few weeks, our dog is responding to commands and seems more relaxed. Considering our dog is a 6-year-old (stubborn) English bulldog who grew up in a puppy mill, her progress is incredible. Jean is very responsive to emails and questions and has offered solutions to the challenges that we face. I'd highly recommend working with her!Devin L.May 25 2017
Best Dog Training in Minneapolis, Eden Prairie and Edina!
Welcome to the Minneapolis West Bark Busters website and thank you for taking the time to check out our unique training methods. As a Bark Busters Master Behavioral Therapist and Trainer in the Minneapolis area, I will work with you to solve the dog behavioral issues you are having with your pet(s). I will work with any dog, any age, any issue. Since 2005 I have trained over 1800 dogs and their owners throughout the Minneapolis area, including South Minneapolis, Edina, St. Louis Park, Hopkins, St. Louis Park, Minnetonka, Bloomington, Richfield, Eden Prairie, Chanhassen, Excelsior, Shorewood, Chaska, Carver, Shakopee, Savage, Prior Lake, Victoria, Waconia, Jordan, New Prague, Cologne, Belle Plaine, Green Isle, Hamburg, and Norwood/Young America areas.
One of the most important things I have learned in my 12+ years as a Bark Buster trainer is that we should never underestimate the intelligence of dogs, the speed with which they can learn, and their eagerness to please if we understand their psychology and learn to communicate with them effectively. I will work with any dog, any age, any issue-even yours!
About Bark Busters
Bark Busters is the world's largest, most trusted dog training company and was founded in Australia in 1989. Sylvia and Danny Wilson developed a simple yet very effective method of training dogs and our trainers have helped over 1 million dogs in 7 countries.
Bark Busters - A Unique Training Method
At Bark Busters, we believe that the best place for your dog to learn is in your own home, without the distractions of other dogs and unfamiliar surroundings. It is also more convenient for busy people.
The initial training session is about 2-3 hours and is tailored to you and your dog (it's not a one size fits all). Most people can see a difference in their dog's behavior after just the first lesson.
I can assist in areas of:
- Dog aggression
- Dog barking
- Dog biting
- Dog chewing
- Dog digging
- Dog jumping
- Dog housebreaking
- Dog separation anxiety
- Dog destructiveness
- Puppy training
- Baby/child safety
- Sibling Rivalry
- And any other issue you are having with your dog
Bark Busters Training Techniques
Our dog behavior training method is based on what dogs already know:canine communication and pack law. We help you to understand where your dog is coming from so you can communicate with them in a "Canine way" rather than a "Human way". Because of this, most dogs respond much more quickly to Bark Busters obedience techniques than to other training methods. It's not only humane and effective; it's fun for you and your dog! We believe we can help any dog at any age, with any problem (even pit bulls, rottweilers, and rescue dogs).
Guaranteed Lifetime Support
Our guaranteed lifetime support gives you peace of mind, knowing that we will be your "dog training partner" for the life of your dog. We will happily return if any new issues arise, free of charge.
I have felt a kinship with dogs my whole life. They have enriched my life beyond measure, and I have always wanted to work with them in some capacity. While living in Colorado, I read an article on Bark Busters in the Denver Post and I knew this is what I had been searching for. Long story short, I moved back to my home state of Minnesota to pursue my dream of helping people live in peace and harmony with their dogs. Minneapolis West Bark Busters was born! Many people have come to me after other methods of training have failed. Please don't give up on your dog before you talk to me! Our motto is

how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
