Bark Busters Home Dog Training South East MI, Brighton, Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Howell MI

Welcome to Bark Busters Home Dog Training

Are you frustrated by your dog's behavior?
Do you try to correct your dog but your dog doesn't listen?
Do you have a new puppy and want to start off right before bad habits develop?

Bark Busters has trained more than 1 million dogs worldwide and our dog training approach has succeeded where other methods have failed. Why? Because we train your dog one-on-one in your home where most of the frustrating behaviors occur. We don't use a "one size fits all" approach because not all owners and their dogs are the same.

What Bark Busters Ann Arbor Can Do For You

  • In Home Training. Most dogs misbehave at home because they are more comfortable in this environment. Because every dog has their own personality and temperament, we create an individualized one-on-one plan.
  • Positive Reinforcement. The Bark Busters system is a positive, non-physical (no choke, pinch, prong or shock collars) natural approach (no clickers) to dog behavior modification based on understanding and clear communication.
  • Speak Dog. Your dog can't speak English and you can't speak dog, so it's no wonder miscommunications occur! Using your vocal commands and body language, we teach you how to refocus your dog's behavior in a language your dog understands.
  • See Results. Our first lesson will last approximately 2 - 3 hours.Many of our clients see a major improvement after the first session.As you start to practice your personalized training plan, on a daily basis, you'll be amazed how quickly your dog will learn to respond.
  • Vet Recommended. Many vet clinics and other dog related businesses in the area recommend Bark Busters because of our proven results.

Bark Busters Home Dog Training Services

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.
