I train dogs and their pet parents using our natural communication techniques that dogs understand. I apply the same communication methods - body language and voice control - that dogs instinctively follow. My initial sessions typically last 2-3 hours.
I do in-home, private behavioral and obedience dog training. The training is done in your home because your dog is more relaxed, there are less distractions and it's where most problems occur. I customize the training program according to your dog's issues and your goals.
I am most proud of the fact that I use natural techniques. I do not believe in using any harsh or physical measures at all. There is no use of any prong, shock or any other type of collar that would cause harm to your dog. I teach you how to communicate with your dog in a simple manner that he/she can understand and that will improve your overall relationship.

“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.”
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.
I specialize in these common behavioral issues:
I also teach basic obedience such as Come, Sit, Stay, Down, Walking as well as general household manners. With puppies the goal is to train them and raise them properly so that they do not develop behavioral issues. I teach puppy basics such as crate and potty training as well. Some clients hire me the day they bring their dog home so I can guide them through the process from start to finish.
Many of my clients come to me after other types of dog training methods have failed. Please do not give up on your dog without working with me first. Bark Busters Home Dog Trainers have saved thousands of dogs across the country that would have been given up or euthanized without our training.
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!
I was seeking help for working with our 3 year old PBGV. It is a breed that is high energy and independent. After an evening with company where we spent most of the evening trying to control Louie, I went online and came across Bark Busters website. Vicky Harper came up as our trainer and she met with us on June 24th. Within a day there was a huge...
Vicky was very thorough with the techniques and showed us step by step. Ghost showed significant improvement from the first training class and has continued with success. I was very happy to see the natural training versus hitting and yelling. Ghost responded very well with the natural way. Vicky always had a new exercise for Ghost and they wer...
Vicky did an outstanding job taking us through her exercises. She took our next door neighbor's dogs and did the introductions to our Lexi. This had taken 4 years to do before Vicky. Then they played in our yard. There was no aggression or barking (which was always the case when they were in separate yards). The dogs were great. She is a mira...
All of our questions were answered in a way we understood. We have a completely different dog by the end of the 1st training. I love the natural techniques that Bark Busters uses. It makes me comfortable correcting my dog. Vicky is a pleasure to work with! We talk about it and recommend Vicky & Bark Busters to everyone. Bark Busters and Vicky...
I needed to be trained more than my dog did! Within 2 weeks I saw his behavior do a 180! Previous trainers used harsh punishment or treat training and neither worked. Voice tones and body language are all you need. Vicky was a pleasure to work with. Very helpful! He took classes at Petsmart and had another private trainer that worked with him...Mary M | Orland Park, Illinois
