“This is by far the best training ever. We rescued our dog Lexi and while at the vet, I came across a brochure for Bark Busters. We could not be happier. Maril is just fantastic and personable and we are so glad we went with this training. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs a well-behaved dog.” Lisa M.

Welcome. We are Maril and Bob Zbik, your Bark Busters dog trainers since 2005. We have been fortunate enough to have successfully trained more than 9,000 dogs and their owners throughout the Detroit area. If you are like us, you love your dog, but in your case there seem to be some behavioral issues that are frustrating you.

We can help! The Bark Busters dog training method is unlike any other method that is out there. Here’s why:

What Differentiates Bark Busters Dog Training?

  • Speak Dog. Dogs learn to communicate with each when they are first born as a member of a pack. With their Mom and siblings, they develop a pack mentality. When they come into your home, you have to establish yourself as the leader of the pack or they will try to take charge! We teach you to be the Top Dog using voice tones and body language. It’s simple and fun for both you and your dog to understand
  • In Home Dog Training. We teach in your home, where most of the problems occur and where your dog is most comfortable and able to focus. Classes often focus on the “average” dog, and Bark Busters knows that each dog is unique. We will develop a customized dog training program that addresses YOUR dog’s specific needs.
  • Fast Results. You will see immediate results. If you practice 15 minutes a day, the behavioral changes will be transformative.
  • Positive reinforcement. Dogs don’t communicate with each other using prong or shock collars or even treats. We use an all-natural approach based on the way dogs normally converse.
  • Vet recommended. Veterinarians see dogs with behavioral issues all day. That’s why many of the veterinarians in Metropolitan Detroit overwhelmingly recommend Bark Busters. In fact, Bark Busters Greater Detroit had trained more than 100 veterinary, shelter and rescue workers in the area to help overcome fear and anxiety.
  • Any dog, any issue, any breed. The beauty of the Bark Busters system is it can be modified for puppies, rescue dogs, pure breeds, dogs with disabilities or even mutts. We can help you overcome the following issues:
    • Aggression toward other dogs or you
    • Adjusting to a new baby or home
    • Barking at inappropriate times
    • Basic obedience
    • Biting or mouthing
    • Chewing or destroying things
    • Door manners
    • Jumping
    • Leash walking
    • Not coming when called
    • Separation anxiety
    • Sibling rivalry

About Your Greater Detroit Dog Trainer

Maril has been awarded the Master Trainer & Behavioral Therapist certification and is also a licensed Canine Safety Consultant. We are extremely community-oriented and work hard to help dogs in our area.

  • We present in-service workshops for veterinary clinics, groomers, kennels, and animal rescues on topics such as preventing dog bites and preparing dogs for adoption. We never want dogs to be re-homed or euthanized because of behavioral issues.
  • We provide educational programs for children, schools and community groups on dog safety, stranger dog danger and more.
  • We are passionate about speaking to community groups so you can choose the right breed for your family or preparing your dog for a new baby or a move.

Once you've learned the Bark Busters training techniques, you'll wonder why anyone would try training a dog any other way!
