Help 4 Pets Dog Tags

The Pet Protector Special Dog Tag System
The Pet Protector Tag works with your pet's microship to provide the best protection.  Think of how seatbelts and airbags work together to keep you safe in the car.  The tag, like the seatbelt, is the first line of defense.  The microship is there as a backup.

It is easy and simple.  With a lost dog, the tag is the first thing that they look for.  Your pet's unique I.D. number is on the back of the tag.  The toll-free phone number instantly connects the caller to emergency help 24 hours a day!

Through Bark Busters, you can get a substantial discount on this great service. 

 

 

 

 

ADOPTION CORNER                                                                                                   (BACK TO TOP OF PAGE)
  
 Occasionally, we have clients who, for any one of a number of reasons, make the difficult decision that they can't keep their dog.  Maybe it's a sudden increase in travel required with a job, allergy problems with someone in the family, or even financial hardship.  When we become aware of those dogs, we'll feature them here.  Every dog listed has been through Bark Busters training and is covered by our Lifetime Support Guarantee.  That means that if you decide to adopt one of these dogs, your local Bark Buster trainer will meet with you on request to make sure that you fully understand our training technique and how to properly use it.  Your local trainer will also be available to help with any behavioral problems your dog may experience down the road.
 

 

Tiger is an American Pit Bull Terrier, at least we’re pretty sure, who is just over 1 year-old. His coat is a lovely brindle with a splotch of white on his chest. He came to us from a shelter on the South Side where he was terribly malnourished, filthy, and in desperate need of some TLC. As his “foster parents,” we hope that we have given Tiger all that he needs physically, now we just need to find him a good home. He has been trained with Bark Busters and comes with a lifetime guarantee so if you ever need some help with any behavior issues you have a well-respected organization that will come to your home. Not that Tiger really needs much. He can “sit” and “stay” and “wait” with the best of them. As much as we would like to say that it took years of hard work to train him, he is truly a fast learner. Sometimes he gets a little excited when strangers come over or when he goes for walks… especially when there are squirrels around. We do not recommend Tiger for a home with kids and would prefer him a decent sized yard to play fetch in, one of his favorite games. We will be glad to give you his many toys he has accumulated while living with us (though he prefers cheap entertainment, as his FAVORITE toys are tennis balls) and his favorite USA blanket. If you want a fun loving dog who aims to please and loves to cuddle close then we highly recommend Tiger!

Tiger’s location at the present time is Elmwood Park – a Chicagoland suburb.  Please direct inquiries directly to Christine Guth at 630-965-7476.
