Best Dog Training Greater Montgomery & Howard Counties, MD!


Bark Busters was developed in Australia to be a natural dog friendly way to change behavior and reduce the number of dogs euthanized or surrendered to animal shelters. The success of this dog training methodology grew into the international company of Bark Busters that exists today, the world's largest dog training organization.

Group Training

Why in-home dog training instead of group classes? Because dogs learn best when they can completely focus on the owner in a known environment that is quiet and free of distractions, and the dog's issues that are causing concern can be seen and addressed. A familiar environment where there's nothing competing for your dog's attention enables us to address the dog obedience issues very quickly. Most, if not all, clients to see results in their dog in the first 20 minutes!

Private and personalized dog training lessons help you and your dog overcome the challenges of your specific living environment.

Use Minds

At Howard County Bark Busters we don't use harsh physical techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior. We engage dogs to use their minds - communicating with them on a level that they understand, using the natural dynamics they understand of voice tones and clear body language.

The best part is --the reason we're able to offer our Life of the Dog Guarantee is because our dog obedience training techniques are proven! We have the knowledge and the skills to diagnose any dog, any age and any issue - even complicated canine behaviors. As we have trained well over 1 million dogs there's no issue we haven't worked with. Puppy training, basic dog training or advanced dog training methods, or all, are included with the Lifetime Guarantee.

About Your Columbia Dog Trainer
I have worked with dogs all my life, and always wanted to spend my second career working as a dog behavior therapist in the area I grew up in, the Nation's capital. I apprenticed with several dog trainers before being introduced to Bark Busters Home Dog Training. I have a graduate degree in clinical psychology and helped change human behavior in my first career lasting over twenty years. I've volunteered since childhood with rescue, service, training, and shelter organizations, and am currently have two rescue dogs (plus a cat), along with taking care of foster dogs.

I became acquainted with Bark Busters in 2005 when a friend became a customer in another state and his dogs' problem behaviors immediately changed for the better. His attempts to explain the methods to me were confusing and I had to experience it for myself to understand. Ove the years I researched many different training methods and was most impressed with the natural dog-friendly system of Bark Busters! I am fortunate to be able to help improve the relationship between owners and dogs, working with the world's premier dog training company, and contributing toward making the families I work with happier ones.

Feel free to call me anytime to answer your questions and learn how to train your dog with Bark Busters, the most remarkable dog training company in the world!
