You have come to the right place if you are experiencing stress with your dog or puppy - help is on the way!
Bark Busters dog-friendly and natural training methods produce quick and efficient results. In fact, it's not unusual to have what were once "out of control dogs" behaving well - sitting and waiting calmly, not jumping up, and not charging the front door - by the end of the first training session.
Puppies can also be a challenge for new first-time dog owners (and even experienced dog owners!). I'll partner with you to quickly sort out toilet training, nipping, and all the other frustrations that are part of puppyhood.
Bark Busters does not use physically or mentally abusive training methods, and I won’t use treats as a primary motivator. I do believe in giving dogs treats, but don’t believe in becoming a “treat dispenser." I train the brain, not the belly.
I teach you to think canine, and to top it all off, give you a “Life of Dog Support Guarantee.” That’s great peace of mind. I believe that for your dog, your calm, safe, and loving home, and your love and affection should be the treat!
Dog training does not alter your dog’s personality for the worse … it improves it.
I will show you how to apply the natural and quick strategies that dogs use themselves to influence each other. These strategies are easy to learn and you'll quickly establish yourself as the leader and the object of your dog's love, respect, and obedience.
My goals are simple: make the household a happy one for you and your dog! Dog adoptions are at an all-time high which is wonderful; but some dogs come with baggage from previous circumstances, and I want to make sure every dog goes to - and stays - happily at their new home!
My life passion has always been animals, and I have worked with them and lived with them all of my life. My start with Bark Busters was more than five years ago when I was working with my own dog with my cousin - a Bark Busters dog trainer in Northern California. I was astounded at the quick and life-changing methods she employed with her clients (and their dogs!). I knew then and there that this was the career path for me – working to make each client and their dog happy and relaxed in their relationships with each other and in their families.
I continue to attend advanced classes and learn from our International network of more than 300 Bark Busters dog trainers and dog behavioral therapists in the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. I have rescued, fostered, and adopted several dogs throughout my life (Husky, Beagle mix, Cocker Spaniel, Poodle mix, Terrier mix and Lab/Newfoundland mix), so I know first-hand what issues come up and what it takes to make things work not just correctly but also practically.
Each dog and family that I partner with on their training is a new opportunity to make a difference in a family's life. Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. I can help you live a happier life together with your dog!
Contact me today - I am excited to help you, and consider it an honor to help your family, and your dog!
Bonnie is truly the best. She is so knowledgeable with a calming demeanor for both the dog and stressed out dog-parents. Our 1 yr old Lab-Shepherd mix, Maizy, became difficult to manage when we downsized from a home with 10 acres to an apartment complex. Her behavior led to being banned from complex’s dog park. When walking on leash she would pull...
So glad I found Bonnie. I was surprised by the change in my dog's behavior after just 1 session. We went through my list of issues one by one and she taught me how to address each of them. Bonnie made sure that I was comfortable with the training and let me practice over and over to make sure I understood how to handle each situation. She is always...
Bonnie is an absolute gem among dog trainers. She asked questions and listened to the concerns I had about some of my dogs’ behavior, she provided easy, clear instructions to correct bad behaviors and encourage good ones, and she has a wonderfully calm demeanor that not only relaxes my dog but me too! I give her my highest recommendation!
Bonnie is the best! I have a very energetic goldendoodle who loves food. He would jump on top of our counters and open the trash. We actually had a couple of scary situations where he ate things he shouldn't have but luckily he was ok. He also would pull me on walks. With Bonnie's help my boy is now respectful and has boundaries. We can both enjoy...
We are so happy to have hired Bonnie and BarkBusters. We rescued Stout late September since we thought great idea, we are stuck home. Well, few months later we couldn't leave. The destruction and the howling was unbearable. He also was barking at every little noise. The walking was getting worse, not better. the idea was for our 15 yr old to go...
I cannot recommend Bonnie Ober highly enough, I love her! I wish I had called Bark Busters a LONG time ago. I had Blue for well over a year and went through a couple of trainers and was still not making any headway. I was told and understood all the "rules" but it was way too overwhelming and exhausting and just didn't work for me and Blue. Bonnie...
Bonnie was amazing! We've worked with a bunch of other trainers and nothing has come close to how confident we feel with her working with us to help reduce our dog's anxiety! Even my grown children were very impressed (which says a lot!) Also, the knowledge that she will continue to be there for us as we have more situations that come up that we ne...
Bonnie was awesome! She really took her time and was able to address all of our needs. We have 3 dogs and had lots of issues we wanted to discuss with her. She was so patient and listened to every one. She gave us so many tips and tricks that worked instantly. Her techniques are different then other trainers, she really gets to why they are doing t...Jodi F | Weston, Middlesex, Massachusetts
