meet your specialist trainer Michelle Willey
Dog Training & Behavioral Therapist for West Valley, Arizona
I adopted a 3 year old German Shepherd. He was so sweet, but with in the first week of having him he tried to bite me. I knew I didn't want to take him back so I decided I needed a trainer to help me before things got worst. I was told I had the BEST trainer in Arizona, and they were right! Michelle taught me to think like a dog, and after one lesson I put everything she told me into practice. Her method isn't her, "training your dog for you" it's equipping you with the skills so that you can bond and train you dog. Michelle feels like a friend you have known your whole life and really takes the time to understand what your needs are and offers genuine solid solutions! Thank you Michelle!Faith S.November 2 2016
Best Dog Training in West Valley!
I am a master trainer with Bark Busters West Valley and enjoy so many aspects of my business. Mostly, I love helping families and individuals see the potential in their dog companions. I come into so many homes where the dog owners are frustrated and just want a dog they can love and enjoy. I help them to overcome dog behavioral problems in a few short hours and watch the relationship between dog and owner grow in new ways. The amazing almost "magic" part about our West Valley dog training is I don't really don't do the training. My clients do. They had the pack leader in them all along; I just teach them how to find it within themselves. I want this dog training to last forever for my clients and that means the relationship and behavioral training must be between them and their dog. The bond is sealed in loyalty, respect, and trust.
The most important thing your West Valley dog needs to understand is that you're their leader in virtually all aspects of their lives. I teach my clients how to be the "leader of the pack" by educating and coaching them about their dog issues. This is essentially how to root out your dogs unwanted behavior issues which will ultimately lead to a fun, happy and well-balanced relationship with your dog. When I work with you through Bark Busters West Valley, I'll teach you how to correct unwanted behaviors and communicate with your dog by using only body language and voice tones which is essentially how they communicate with each other. (It's really an amazing and proven technique!)
I do in-home, private behavioral and obedience training because that is where we can get the most attention from the dog, it's where most dog behavioral problems occur, and it's where we can obtain the fastest results. Clients see results literally in the very first dog training session! Have a puppy? We do puppy training too!
Many of my clients come to me after other types of dog training methods have failed. (Don't give up on your dog without working with me first.) Bark Busters Home Dog Trainers have saved many dogs across the country that would have been given up or put to sleep without our pet training. We can help you overcome dog barking, dog anxiety, dog house training and dog aggression.
At Bark Busters West Valley, I come when called! I help dog owners throughout Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale, Goodyear, Laveen, Litchfield Park, Peoria, Sun City, Sun City Grand, Sun City West, Surprise, Tolleson, Tonopah, Waddell, Wickenburg, Wittmann, and West Phoenix.

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.
