Vicky Harper Dog Training

Vicky explained the training techniques and she demonstrated each one with us. I observed noticeable results by the end of the first session and then two days later noticed even more results. Vicky really bonded well with my two boxers. I would recommend the training because it also does not harm my dogs. I have already told three pet owners they should call Vicky.     -- Tina Van Dyke, New Lenox, IL

It's been about a week and Dreyfus is like a new pup. Vicky taught us how to train him. He no longer jumps up on people, no longer counter surfs, and doesn't chew on everything like a termite! He still has a few more things to learn, but I see remarkable progress every day!! Vicky is an angel. If you are having problems with your pup, please contact Bark Busters. You will shocked at the change in your dog; no more bad behavior and it is easy to do. No shock collars, no yelling or smacking. Just vocalizations. Your pup will be happy because you are happy!! --Tracy Marsden, Oak Forest, IL

She is incredibly genuine in her concerns for our dogs! She is as excited about their progress as we are. The steps are not only humane but also easy to follow. I didn't feel like we were in "boot camp," and we're better at training when we're relaxed. We have 3 dogs, 2 of which are rescue dogs with some behavioral issues. One dog is aggressive and has made us walk on eggshells in our home. When one of her "triggers" occurs, everyone is affected. However, within very little time we have noticed huge improvements in her stress levels and ours. We couldn't be happier! They all deserve a "stress-free life."               --Jennifer Piwnicki, Orland Park, IL

Vicky Harper did a very good job in teaching me how to train my 1-year and 2-month-old German shepherd. She gave me very useful tools to help stop his jumping and to train him how to stay and walk correctly on a leash. I am looking forward to seeing how my dog will develop as the weeks go on. I work at a vet clinic, and I will tell the vet to recommend Bark Busters as a way to train even the most untrainable dogs too all our customers. They were only here a few hours, but in those hours, I have learned how to be the leader and how to stop my dog from jumping without yelling and sometimes spanking him.                          --Tammy Kusy, Country Club Hills, IL

Very pet-friendly techniques. I observed noticeable results by the end of the training, and so have other people. I was very, very, very pleased with the natural training techniques. I found the training experience to be interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors. Vicky was a very good teacher. What she taught us was very easy to understand and the techniques worked wonderfully! --Barbara Stranczek, Crestwood, IL

Jim Unton and Vicky Harper spent 90 minutes in my home and transformed my Labrador! From the minute they entered the house, they were educating me and helping me to understand "how my dog thinks." I believe that the Bark Busters approach to training is so successful because it involves the trainer as much as the pet. They are terrific folks who understand and love animals and it shows. My family was amazed at the difference in my dog, Clover. She used to charge the door and jump up on everyone but now she can greet people by sitting sweetly and wagging her tail as they pet her on the head. I don't even have to raise my voice with her anymore. The magical "green bag" in my hand is all she needs to see and she calms down instantly. This is the best training around! --Cheryl Host, Tinley Park, IL

-- Robert Madia, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I have been implementing the exercises and it make perfect sense. After I do the things his reactions are phenomenal out of our pup. We are super pleased with our results.

I would recommend Bark Busters to our friends because they are wonderful techniques proven to work--I have seen it.

-- Deedy Herman, Orland Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Mary Ann was very patient in her explanations and corrections. Saw some positive results immediately and more in the days following training. Maggie has been much more content and relaxed since the training, and so have I!

-- Mary Clayton, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky explained the techniques in a way that was easy to follow. She used her notes as well as personal observation while she was here with us and our puppies. I observed noticeable results by the end of training. They were already sitting and staying when told to. They never really did that before this training. I like that they don't get a treat every time they follow directions—they'd get fat. I found the training experience interesting and enjoyable. Vicky was very friendly and knowledgeable.

-- Matt & Carrie Hosteny, Orland Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I would definitely recommend Bark Busters. It is better than obedience class because it is individualized to our dogs. We have never seen our golden retriever be submissive on a leash and the Bark Busters collar works. Looking forward to being able to control her on walks.

-- Laura Genslinger, Homer Glen, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I observed noticeable results by the end of the training. I found the training to be interesting and enjoyable. It will work if we are consistent. Rocky is a 10-month-old and he wants to be good but sometimes he can't help himself—he's been abused. Your methods are quiet and kind.

-- Connie Bylsma, New Lenox, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Everything was great. I would recommend Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors. I like that there is a trainer near almost every community to help with situations.

-- Sarah Erickson, Oak Forest, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky was excellent! She explained things very clearly and with great reasoning. Vicky had our antisocial dog playing fetch with her (which she NEVER does) and eating our of her hand! I love that there are no negative or harmful techniques—or food—since we won't always have treats with us! Vicky was very personable and friendly. It's easy, affordable and rewarding—and it works! Vicky was amazing! She had our dog doing things I never thought were possible after an hour of meeting her!

-- Jade Wagner, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Very easy to understand and helpful. Nice lady who seems to really want to help people and their dogs. Both dogs had fun and responded well. Good suggestions and very helpful. Both dogs seemed to enjoy the training.

-- Kevin Shaughnessy, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)

-- Katie Tobin, Orland Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky was very clear and patient—very easy to follow. I found that Adin was easy to train and smarter than I knew. The program is very humane—dog and people friendly. I had fun, and so did Adin. I would recommend Bark Busters because it was easy, fun to learn—helpful. I really believe that this experience will enhance the relationship between Adin and I.

-- Sister Diane Marie Collins, Lemont, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I have seen many dogs that have no training and could definitely use your help! I love the fact that you train in home and will do it for the dog's lifetime.

-- Lynne DiLorenzo, Frankfort, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
My boxer picked up the "BAH" sound very quickly. Once I said it he'd look up to me for eye contact and the command. A lot has to be said about the trainer. You could tell she loved her job and was very patient. I feel we got extremely lucky having Vicky Harper as our trainer. We are considering upgrading to a lifetime membership. Currently we are annual.

-- Karen Coley, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I loved seeing my dog respond right away in a positive manner. The therapist was wonderfully friendly and encouraging. The process is easy to understand and follow. It is a personal approach to developing good doggy behavior. The program is logical and easy to follow. Training in my home tells the dog immediately that we all mean business!

The session/materials were very helpful & informative. Our trainer, Vicky was very professional & knowledgeable.

-- Jillian Stalf, Orland Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)

-- Gina Brooks, Frankfort, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky was extremely enjoyable to work with. Very easy going and very positive. I thought Tekaya would not be easy to train but she was a different dog by the end of the lesson. The training was very easy and effective.

-- Christie Smaidris, Frankfort, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
I found the training to be interesting and enjoyable. I was pleased with the natural training techniques. I would recommend Bark Busters to friends and neighbors because I see the neighbors dogs pulling them around on the leash.

-- Hannah Schneider, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky was very good. She was even a sport when my puppy continued to pee on her. I would recommend Vicky because I learned and continue to learn and train my puppy.

-- Chris Rosselli, Midlothian, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
The therapist was very personable. We observed noticeable results by the end of the training. Our dogs responded very well. It's so easy to use--enjoyed the training at our home. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters!

-- Fran Smelser, Dyer, IN (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
After the first lesson our dog was listening to us. I was pleased with Vicky because we had other trainers who felt my dog was un-trainable and believed we should use a pinch collar. I would absolutely recommend Bark Busters because the techniques are safe and you get results.

-- Linda Gawel, Oak Forest, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Sadie definitely knew by the end of our 1st session that the alpha dynamic had changed in the house!

-- Janet Janulis, Palos Heights, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)

My dog Tyler was definitely listening better and improved with each exercise. I definitely see how this method makes sense and can work. I was very pleased. It made me feel more in control and at ease. I would recommend Bark Busters to my friends and neighbors because of the results and techniques appear workable.

Fast, Safe, Effective--it sounds like an ad for Tylenol! It was an answer to my prayers. I didn't really think you could teach an old dog new tricks! Vicky Harper was, in my opinion, a natural dog trainer. She got me thinking like my dog-which was key to our whole problem!

Very effective right away!

-- Angela Turano, Frankfort, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
She was very clear and explained everything so I understood right away. I observed noticeable results after she left, and I used the training methods. They responded to bahhh immediately. I was amazed! Yes, Vicky made it fun and not stressful. This is only day 2 and it is working already. It can help any dog. My dogs are really pretty good but they still have problems. I know they will be corrected.

-- Myrna Adams, Oak Lawn, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
The dogs are beginning to respond and were engaged in activities. Dogs seem calmer - key is consistency and catching them at the appropriate moment. Individual training was much better than the group sessions we previously attended.

Great Job! Thanks for all your help.

-- Nicole Guarino, Chicago Heights, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)

Easy to understand and didn't do any harsh punishments (very, very great); already listening to commands. Felt at home like training with friends.

-- Cheryl Host, Tinley Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky Harper & Jim Unton were very sincere as soon as they walked in. We noticed a change within the first hour. The one-on-one training at home, we believe is really going to work. So many things made sense when they explained why dogs do some of the things they do. The therapists were very well trained and made us feel that they were truly there to help us. We really didn't know what to expect; we thought this might be a rip-off program. We're glad we were wrong!

-- Tom & Gloria Stoettner, Orland Park, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Very easy to understand and dog responded well. Very friendly, knowledgeable, listened to the owners problems with the dog. Very helpful so far.

-- Sherry Rarity, Homewood, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
VERY PLEASED!

-- Linda Carruth, Frankfort, IL (Trainer: Vicky Harper)
Vicky Harper did a very good job in teaching me how to train my 1-year and 2-month-old German shepherd. She gave me very useful tools to help stop his jumping and to train him how to stay and walk correctly on a leash. I am looking forward to seeing how my dog will develop as the weeks go on. I work at a vet clinic, and I will tell the vet to recommend Bark Busters as a way to train even the most untrainable dogs too all our customers. They were only here a few hours, but in those hours, I have learned how to be the leader and how to stop my dog from jumping without yelling and sometimes spanking him.
