We Educate Dog Owners Not Dogs

Bark Busters training techniques are both humane and effective. There is never any reason to be physical with our four legged friends or to use electronic or prong collars that can inflict pain and fear.

Our training is based on educating the human adults in the household on how to be strong Pack Leaders and how to Speak Dog. You must be able to communicate with your four legged friend before you can educate him/her. Dogs instinctively will take over the role of Pack Leader if they feel, from their canine perspective, that their humans are just not qualified. This puts way to much responsibility on your dog and can create or worsen undesired behaviors.

Just like people, dogs are not all the same, they have their own temperaments and personalities. I will customize your dog training sessions to fit your dog's personality as well as the needs of your family.

“We had a great session. This was an introduction for us as none of us has ever raised a dog. Janet made the lesson very accessible and helpful for us and our kids. It was very informative and we have already put the lessons to use.” Paul D., Chicago, IL

About Your Dog Trainer – Janet Osberg

I have been assisting clients with their dog training needs since 2006 and have trained hundreds of dogs and I would love to help you too. Bark Busters Home Dog Training also offers guaranteed lifetime support. At no additional cost, I will return to assist and support you in training throughout your dog's lifetime.

“Janet is an excellent trainer. As soon as she got here she recognized my dog had too much freedom in the house. We set up space for Molly in the kitchen area only and she started playing with her toys. But what was important was my stress level went down immediately. I didn’t realize that by giving her so much freedom it was causing all sorts of problems, like soiling in the house when I didn’t see it.” Moira M., Morton Grove, IL

I would love to share with you my knowledge of canine mentality, pack structure and training methods that can easily address common dog behavior issues, before you get to a point of desperation.
