Best Dog Training in the Greater Detroit Metro!
Welcome. I am Maril Zbik, your Bark Busters dog trainer since 2005. I have been fortunate enough to have successfully trained thousands dogs and their owners throughout the Detroit area. If you are like me, you love your dog, but in your case there seem to be some behavioral issues that are frustrating you.
I am a certified Master-level Dog Trainer & Dog Behavioral Therapist and is also a licensed Canine Safety Consultant. I am extremely community-oriented and work hard to help dogs in our area.
I present in-service workshops for veterinary clinics, groomers, kennels, and animal rescues on topics such as preventing dog bites and preparing dogs for adoption. I never want dogs to be re-homed or euthanized because of behavioral issues. I provide educational programs for children, schools and community groups on dog safety, stranger dog danger and more. I am 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.
The Bark Busters dog training method is unlike any other method that is out there. Here’s why:
We 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! I 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. I 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. I 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. I 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.
What Makes Bark Busters Detroit Unique
Bark Busters is the worldwide leader of in-home dog training, helping over 1 million families and their dogs around the globe since 1989. We wholeheartedly believe in our methods and 30+ years of results. At Bark Busters Detroit, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans at the root of many behavioral issues by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!
Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.
This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.
Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love. Most people don't know how to appeal to a dog's natural sense of leadership or communication. We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.
