About Brandon, Howard & Marlene
Best Dog Training in Chicago, Evanston, Skokie, Wilmette & Chicago North Shore!
Meet Brandon, Howard and Marlene Marks! We are your Bark Busters Behavioral Therapists and Trainers for Chicago and Chicago’s North Shore Suburbs. We provide in-home private dog behavior training because that is where you and family are most comfortable, and we can get the most focus from your dog. As a result, you will have a rewarding experience and a better relationship with your dog.
Bark Busters professional training gives you the confidence to handle your dog’s specific problems.
Free of outside and unfamiliar distractions, our first in home training session is about 2-1/2 to 3 hours. After briefly walking through some dog psychology and our technique, we start the training exercises designed for your dog to understand that you are the leader. After getting inside results, we will start outside training so you can enjoy the walking and social experiences with your dog or puppy.
Before we leave, all the exercises we worked on are documented so that you can practice in between our visits. We ask that you practice only 15-20 minutes a day to reinforce what we worked on with you and your dog.
Bark Busters at Home Dog Training methods reinforces a positive relationship between you and your dog, leading to a long-term emotional bond built on trust and respect. Our dog training technique aids in addressing your dog’s behavioral challenges. Our dog training methods do not rely on food or force (i.e., shock collars, e-collars, choke collars, pinning, or other types of intimidation) or clickers. Our goal is to teach your dog to love and respect you, not fear you, control you, or create chaos in your home. In fact, many people can’t believe how much can be accomplished without being physical or relying on food.
What Makes Bark Busters Chicago Unique
Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training, helping over 1 million families and their dogs around the globe since 1989. We wholeheartedly believe in our methods and 30+ years of results. At Bark Busters Chicago, 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.
