Best Dog Training in Orland Park , Chicago IL, Cook and Will Counties in IL and Lake County in IN!

Welcome to Dog Training Orland Park! My name is Vicky Harper and I am your dog trainer for not only Orland Park but the Southwest and Southeast suburbs of Chicago, including towns such as Tinley Park, Mokena, New Lenox, Homer Glen, Homewood and Flossmoor and all surrounding towns. I also cover Northwest Indiana (including Hammond, St. John, Schererville, Dyer, Highland and Munster) as well as Beverly and Mount Greenwood in Chicago.

I’m really passionate about dog training and Bark Busters! I am in my 12th year of this wonderful career and have had the privilege of training thousands of dogs.

Why you should choose me vs. other dog trainers?

  1. Bark Busters has been in business since 1989 and we are a worldwide company. We will be celebrating our 30th Anniversary next year. In a time where other businesses have come and gone, you can rest assured we are grounded.
  2. I’m in my 12th year of doing business and my business has grown over the years even flourishing in down economic times. Why? Because the training works!
  3. We use completely humane techniques. There is nothing harsh or physical with respect to the training. This will allow you to get the results but keep your wonderful relationship you have with your dog intact.
  4. We work with dogs on certain issues that other trainers wouldn’t even consider, taking on more serious cases such as aggression and separation anxiety.
  5. We offer a Lifetime Guarantee. This gives you peace of mind knowing that if you have any new or recurring issues as long as your dog is alive, you will have my support. You will even have continued support if you ever have to move!
  6. I work with all breeds and there is no breed discrimination.
  7. I work with dogs of all ages as well! It is never too early or too late to begin a training program.
  8. I come to you and the training is done in your home. I customize your program based on what’s most important to you and your family.
  9. I teach you how to communicate with your dog in a simple & kind manner that he can understand. I teach you how to “Speak Dog”!

Still not sure this is right for you? Just read what my clients have said about me over the years:

“Vicky was amazing!! I have taken my dog to puppy obedience classes with extreme negative results due to condescending trainers. Right off the bat, Vicky made me feel comfortable and like she appreciated me asking questions. I was able to constantly ask for more details in order to reiterate the positive reinforcement she was teaching me and my puppy. She explained all her training techniques in detail and explained the thought processes behind it. I even felt comfortable enough not to lie to her about how much reinforcement has been done with my puppy BEFORE we met Vicky! She was not biased and took the time to listen, which is the exact opposite of the classes we have taken before! Vicky is the best!!!”

“Vicky is an amazing Trainer! I have been looking for the best trainer for my German Shepherd puppy and she nailed it! We started straining at 8 weeks with quick results with her puppy management training and continue to see Vicky to this day. Our puppy is happier than ever using Bark Busters methods and see immediate results. I highly recommend Vicky for anyone seeking a humane, non-physical, natural way to train your dog.”

“Vicky has been incredibly helpful for us. We have two dogs, a year-old rescue hound mix and a 10 year-old black lab mix. We just rescued the hound a few months ago and our biggest issue was occasional aggression and fighting. It's only been a few appointments but we've already been able to improve on their listening and obedience and the fights have lessened in intensity and are decreasing. We're on our way to a harmonious relationship for both dogs and are confident with the skills Vicky has given us that it will be sooner rather than later! A few of the best things about Vicky is the in-home training. That was most important to us. We wanted to be able to train the dogs in an environment that was comfortable for them but also the most natural. She's always available if you need help in between appointments and leaves you with great materials to improve while she's gone as well. I highly recommend her whether you need a little training or A LOT of help.”

See My Google Reviews:

I am proud to be acknowledged as a true professional expert in the field of dog training. I have worked directly on a national level with The Steve Harvey Show! They came to me and have sought out my advice and help. I’ve worked with them behind the scenes on some of their programs involving dogs and Steve himself gave me a shout out on air during one of the programs. You can imagine my surprise when I got a call from them on a Sunday morning! But how did they find out about me? They simply did their research like you and googled dog trainers in the Chicago area! They looked at the type of techniques that I use and read all of the positive things my clients have said about me online over the years!

Now, what kinds of issues are you having? I work on the following issues but have addressed many other concerns or specialty requests over the years:

People Aggression

Dog Aggression

Sibling Rivalry (dogs in the same household fighting)

Separation Anxiety

Toilet training for dogs of all ages




Chewing and other destructive behaviors



Begging, attention seeking and demanding behaviors

Leash Walking


Front Door Manners

Preparing your dog for a baby in the household

Pool safety

Puppy training including toilet & crate training

General manners

Overprotectiveness to family members, home or property

Basic obedience training

Not getting along with cats or other animals in the household

Traveling with your dog

Owners over the years have used my training as a platform so that their dogs could go on to do many other fun and rewarding things such as being a therapy dog, agility training and being an emotional support animal. Once you have the foundation for good behavior, there is no limit to the possibilities!

The best part about the training is that I expect you to start to get results immediately. The initial lesson is very informative yet fun and positive!
