meet your specialist trainer Glenda Cohen
Bark Busters Home Dog Training Germantown, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Montgomery County MD
Prior to our training with Glenda, we had taking our 2-year old mini Australian Sheppard, Khali, to several classes and private trainers to help us with her growling, "scream" barking, leash-pulling, and poor recall. We tried clicker-training, changing her collar multiple times, and ran a variety of time-consuming exercises that were unrealistic for two full-time working adults. Glenda provided us the complete opposite experience! She taught us how to change the way in which we interact with Khali (command, correct, praise) and more importantly, helped us understand how and why these changes would affect her overall behavior. She provided us with simple and manageable training exercises that targeted Khali's specific behaviors. After 3 training sessions with Glenda, our Khali is much happier, much more relaxed, and we couldn't be more thrilled for her. Thank you, Glenda, for all of your help with our Khali girl!Janna and Sam K.September 25 2017

After working as a speech-language pathologist for over 20 years , I decided that I wanted to pursue another area of communication-- namely the communication between humans and their canine companions. For me there is almost nothing as rewarding in this world as helping to strengthen the communication and bond between dogs and their owners.
Now, after training more than 2000 dogs over more than 8 years, I am still as passionate and committed to helping you achieve your goals as I was back in 2005 when I started. The difference now is that I also bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with me to every single client. So when I say I can help you train any dog, any breed, any issue, I have the results to prove it.
Bark Busters training techniques are simple, fun, and it is all done in YOUR HOME, at times that are convenient for everyone in your household. You will learn a more natural method of training your dog that uses body language and voice tone instead of having to resort to clickers, treats, shock collars, or pinch collars. By the end of the very first lesson you will begin to see a dramatic improvement in your dog's behavior.
With our customized training programs, you will learn how to address behavioral issues such as excessive barking, housebreaking, pulling on the leash, front door manners, and chewing, as well as learn basic puppy and obedience training. This training is also extremely effective for more difficult issues such as aggression, sibling rivalry, and separation anxiety. By working with your dog just 10-15 minutes a day you will see an amazing change in your dog's behavior in a matter of days--not weeks or months. Let me help you get started today!
If your dog is making your household stressful and chaotic, help is just a phone call away.

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.
