Home Dog Training in Boston Northwest!
Welcome. I am Bonnie Ober, your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Boston Northwest. My life passion has always been animals, and I have worked with them and lived with them all of my life. My start with Bark Busters was more than five years ago when I was working with my own dog with my cousin - a Bark Busters dog trainer in Northern California. I was astounded at the quick and life-changing methods she employed with her clients (and their dogs!). I knew then and there that this was the career path for me – working to make each client and their dog happy and relaxed in their relationships with each other and in their families.
I continue to attend advanced classes and learn from our International network of more than 300 Bark Busters dog trainers and dog behavioral therapists in the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. I have rescued, fostered, and adopted several dogs throughout my life (Husky, Beagle mix, Cocker Spaniel, Poodle mix, Terrier mix and Lab/Newfoundland mix), so I know first-hand what issues come up and what it takes to make things work not just correctly but also practically.
Bark Busters dog-friendly and natural training methods produce quick and efficient results. In fact, it's not unusual to have what were once "out of control dogs" behaving well - sitting and waiting calmly, not jumping up, and not charging the front door - by the end of the first training session.
Puppies can also be a challenge for new first-time dog owners (and even experienced dog owners!). I'll partner with you to quickly sort out toilet training, nipping, and all the other frustrations that are part of puppyhood.
Bark Busters does not use physically or mentally abusive training methods, and I won’t use treats as a primary motivator. I do believe in giving dogs treats, but don’t believe in becoming a “treat dispenser." I train the brain, not the belly.
I teach you to think canine, and to top it all off, give you a “Life of Dog Support Guarantee.” That’s great peace of mind. I believe that for your dog, your calm, safe, and loving home, and your love and affection should be the treat! Dog training does not alter your dog’s personality for the worse, it improves it.
I will show you how to apply the natural and quick strategies that dogs use themselves to influence each other. These strategies are easy to learn and you'll quickly establish yourself as the leader and the object of your dog's love, respect, and obedience.
My goals are simple: make the household a happy one for you and your dog! Dog adoptions are at an all-time high which is wonderful; but some dogs come with baggage from previous circumstances, and I want to make sure every dog goes to - and stays - happily at their new home!

We wholeheartedly believe in our methods and 30+ years of results. At Bark Busters Boston Northwest, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans at the root of many behavioral issues by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!
Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.
This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love. Most people don't know how to appeal to a dog's natural sense of leadership or communication. We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.
