As dog trainers for Bark Busters Home Dog Training, we have successfully trained dogs throughout the Los Angeles area.

Here's What You Can Expect From Bark Busters

Daily in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, we assist dog owners in developing well behaved and obedient dogs through the proprietary dog training method developed by Bark Busters. What makes our approach unique?

Home Dog Training. We will come into your home for private dog training lessons, developing a one-on- one game plan to address your dog's specific issues. Why your home? Your home is a safe environment for your dog and that is where most of the misbehaviors will occur. Free of unusual distractions, your dog will quickly learn your house rules when it comes to aggression, barking, sibling rivalry, separation anxiety and more. After setting the ground rules indoors, we can then go outdoors to work on socialization and leash pulling.

Passive Influence. Our first dog training lesson will take approximately 2 to 3 hours. The Bark Busters dog behavioral methods revolve around non-physical, positive training methods.

We don't believe in shock collars, prong collars or choke collars. Every dog is an individual with their own personalities, temperaments, and experiences. Once we have a plan in place, we can address any lingering issues in the future.

Effective Communication. Dogs can't speak 'human', so it's no wonder they can't initially understand our verbal commands. We will teach you how to communicate with your dog in a language he understands. You will learn how to use your body language and voice to establish yourself as the 'Top Dog'. By consistently reinforcing our dog training techniques for 20 minutes a day, you will soon have a well-mannered and obedient dog.

No limitations. We can train any dog, any breed, any size, any age! We cover everything from puppy training to senior dogs.

Life of the Dog Guarantee. Our Life-of-the-Dog Guarantee goes wherever you and your dog go! Bark Busters is the only company with National Support & Unlimited Training options. This guarantee stays with your dog wherever you move.

As professional dog obedience trainers, we can help you overcome the following dog mis-behaviors:








Obsessive Behaviors

Separation anxiety

Sibling rivalry

And more!

About Your Hollywood, Los Angeles & Santa Monica Dog Trainers:

Derek and Lissette Anovick

For Derek and Lissette Anovick animal welfare of all living creatures with a specific focus on dogs has been a passion throughout their entire life. They make an impact on people's lives on a daily basis by rehabilitating dogs and teaching owners how to effectively communicate with their canine counterpart and be the pack leader.

Lissette's passion for dogs stems from her early childhood having been raised with multiple dogs ranging from teacup Pomeranians to large German Shepard's (street rescued dogs to pure breeds). She ended up rescuing dogs from euthanasia by always adopting from local shelters. Her knowledge and understanding of dogs stems from her innate ability to 'speak dog' dating back to her early childhood days. Everyone in the neighborhood would ask Lissette for assistance with any training or behavioral issues since she was so in tune with animals since the age of 5. Lissette went on to build a career in health and wellness as a health coach and personal trainer, aiding people in their need to cure diseases and ailments through proper diet and nutrition. She treats the root of the problem and not the symptom. Her wealth of diet and nutrition knowledge carries over to animals as well since food sources for dogs are as equally poor in nutrients as their human counterparts.

Her training in this field carries over to the animal world quite well allowing her to assist dog owners that are willing and open for nutritional guidance and assistance. It's a match made in heaven for Lissette to do what she truly loves on a daily basis thanks to the Bark Buster philosophy of assisting as many dogs and dog owners as possible world-wide.

Derek's story is a bit different as he grew up with dog and cat related asthma allergies and had to limit exposure to all animals as a result. He always loved being around animals but his health condition would not allow him to do so. At the age of 32, he decided to go out on a limb and adopt his first dog with the hopes that his asthma would subside eventually. Although he suffered for the first few months, he was able to build up enough antibodies in his system naturally to become immune to dog dander with no side effects and not needing to partake in allergy treatments. He went on to adopt 2 more additional dogs over the next few years. After that he felt comfortable being able to finally express his passion and love towards all breeds after having overcome the asthma issue. He made annual trips to the island of Puerto Rico several times a year for many years, dedicating most of his time to animal welfare assistance and feeding hungry street dogs in need. After a 20 year career in marketing and advertising,

Derek finally had the opportunity to transition into behavioral dog training full-time with Bark Busters when the opportunity presented itself. He is now a mater trainer along with Lissette and loving every minute of it.

Karina Gonzalez

We're thrilled to have Karina Gonzalez join our team. Karina's passion and love for helping animals has been with her since she was a child. Growing up in Puerto Rico, alongside her Miniature Schnauzer, bestowed upon her a love dogs, and especially this breed. She would regularly help feed the street dogs (Sato’s) in Puerto Rico and seeing these dogs in these conditions - homeless, with no food or water - instilled in her a desire to help all animals, especially dogs. Karina moved to the United States from Puerto Rico where she added a second Miniature Schnauzer to her family. 

Being part of the most prestigious dog training company in the world, Bark Busters, has given Karina a higher purpose in life. Helping clients to achieve their goals and strengthen their relationship with their dog is her number one priority as soon as she walks in that door. She looks forward to teaching you and your family to "Speak Dog" the Bark Busters way!
