Best Dog Training in Minneapolis, Eden Prairie and Edina!
I will work with any dog
G’day and welcome to Minneapolis West Bark Busters. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. My name is Jean Atwood and I am a Master Dog Behavior Therapist and Trainer with Bark Busters Home Dog Training. For the past thirteen years it has been my pleasure and privilege to work with over 2,000 dogs and their owners in the Minneapolis area for the purpose of helping them to live together in peace and harmony. I will work with any dog, any age, any issue (even puppies ten weeks and older)!
We all want a happy and well behaved dog and my goal is to help you achieve that. Our unique method of training is based on the way that dogs naturally communicate with each other in a pack. I will help you understand how your dog sees the world and how your dog is trying to communicate with you. Our methods are dog friendly using voice tones and body language to help guide your dog to desired behaviors. I help my clients learn to think, act, and speak like a dog so they will understand what you are trying to tell them!
Many dog training programs rely on treat training, shock collars, or harsh methods. At Minneapolis West Bark Busters I’ll teach you how to the “Leader of the Pack” in a way that makes sense to them. My goal if for your dog to respect you, not fear you.
Most people I work with see a difference in the way their dog responds to them after the first session! The training can be fun for both you and your dog and help you strengthen your bond of love, trust, and respect. I will be there to coach you through the learning process. May of my clients have come to me after other training methods have failed. Please don’t give up on your dog without working with me first. Our mission at Bark Busters Home Dog Training is to save as many dogs as possible from abuse, abandonment, or euthanasia.
I have wanted to work with dogs my entire life and I am so grateful to have found Bark Busters. I am thrilled to be part of this group of wonderful, dedicated people whose sole purpose is to make life better for our four-legged friends. They give us so much and ask for so little in return!

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
A Better Way to a Better Dog
