Bark Busters Home Dog Training. Servicing Grand Rapids MI
Chris is a delightful gal! She first sat with us and explained the techniques to be used, thus equipping us before we even approached our new dog. To our amazement, the effective methods we had just learned changed everything about our next interaction with the dog. He went from being a 70 lb rambunctious jumper to a self-controlled animal who proceeded to behave just as he should in each activity thereafter. We are looking forward to her next visit in which we will address other specific areas of training which we desire for him. "Thank you, Chris"...is an understatement!Leeanna, Jeanette, Marv E.April 14 2017
Best Dog Training Grand Rapids MI
My name is Chris and I have and intense passion for dogs. I love helping them live happy lives with the families who love them.
I grew up in Greenville and consider Grand Rapids home. I’ve been in service oriented careers until recently. But, since finding my place here at Bark Busters, I have truly unlocked my passion and true calling.
I have seen so many families struggle with their dog’s behavior problems and it causes stress. Problems like excessive barking, jumping up on everyone, pulling uncontrollably on leash, or aggression, fear, or separation anxiety can all lead to tension and stress in the family. It also makes it harder to really enjoy the relationship you have with your dog.
The good news is that I can help. As one of the most highly trained dog training professionals in the Grand Rapids area, I can help you see significant improvement in your dogs’ behavior in the first three hour session and help you get the problem entirely under control in weeks.
My techniques focus on establishing clearer communication between you and your dog. This forges a more trusting relationship and is the key to unlocking your dog’s full potential.
Instead of spending more time searching the internet for answers that may work for other dogs, take the first step to a customized solution for you and your dog’s unique circumstances. Call or email me today. Uncertain if this will work for you? Call or email my office and we can discuss your case and your needs. Peace and serenity is a call away. And keep in mind our service is covered by our Written Lifetime Service Guarantee.
I look forward to meeting you and your furry loved one!
how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
