West Michigan dog training

Welcome to Bark Busters Home Dog Training – Helping dogs around the world since 1989; with over one million dogs trained worldwide. In 2003 I decided to bring Bark Busters to West Michigan – what a rewarding and fun career.

Natural Methods

I will teach you a system based on canine communication that your dog already understands. Using the correct body language and vocal communication skills; you will finally be able to get your dog’s focus and respect. Then, the opportunity for education is created and you can teach your dog what behaviors are acceptable and which are not.   The training methods we use are non-physical and natural to our dogs; they are looking for leadership, once you know how to be that ‘leader of the pack’, you will be able to show and guide them to make the correct choices.

Any dog Any Age – Any Issue

Every dog is an individual with its own personality, temperament and experiences. They each live in their unique environment – your home. Each situation is different – there is no “one size fits all” approach! One on one training means we can address behaviors right where they are occurring – in your home and your neighborhood. During the initial 2-3 hour visit I will coach you and your dog[s] through training exercises that are easy to learn and simple to use. Most people notice an immediate, positive change in how their dog responds to them. Setting aside 20 minutes per day for the first six weeks turns into a different way of life for you and your dog! During your daily interaction with your dog, using your new techniques and knowledge you will continue to see improvements in your dog!

Fun – Positive – Effective – Our training focuses on improving your relationship with your dog by creating trust and respect between you and your dog. Bark Busters does not believe in using harsh techniques, nor do we want you to have to bribe your dog with treats to get it to respond to you. We believe in giving them lots of positive praise so we get to see those wagging tails. Dogs Speak Dog, when you can communicate with them in a way they understand it is truly amazing the results you can achieve.

How Bark Busters Can Help You – When all you want is a well behaved dog; one that will not embarrass you in front of family, friends and neighbors, call Bark Busters to help you get the ‘best friend’ you always wanted. Many times we can help resolve problems that other training methods have failed to fix!

Lifetime Support Guarantee

Lifetime Support Guarantee

The Bark Busters worldwide dog behaviour training support guarantee is unique in the industry. It is designed to help owners resolve their dog behaviour issues and dog obedience issues and to provide our customers with ongoing peace of mind. It provides for the following:

  • Written: Clients receive a written, signed copy of the dog training guarantee on their Bark Busters receipt which is an official Bark Busters Australia document and outlines all the training methods which must be adopted to resolve your dog’s behaviour problems.
  • Backed Up: The Bark Busters guarantee is backed up by the world’s largest dog training company. Copies of all guarantee receipts are retained at Bark Busters’ Australia & New Zealand Head Office.
  • Service Guarantee: The Bark Busters guarantee simply states that if the owner continues to carry out all of the training instructions provided by the therapist at the training lessons, the Bark Busters therapist will continue to work with the owner, to achieve the desired results, for either one year, or the life of the dog (depending on the service obtained) at no additional charge. Most clients prefer the lifetime support guarantee because they receive peace of mind for very little additional cost.
  • All Problems Covered: The guarantee provides for ongoing, free assistance no matter if the same problems recur, or if new problems arise. There is never an additional charge when your trainer returns, except for transportation costs if agreed in advance in certain areas falling outside the geographical area covered by your trainer.
  • Guarantee Moves With The Dog: If for any reason the dog needs to be re-homed, the remaining term of the guarantee passes to the new owner for a nominal fee. In the case of the lifetime support guarantee, the new owner will be trained and will receive the benefits of the guarantee for the life of the dog. The one-year guarantee applies if the re-housing is done within the first year. Clients can upgrade to the lifetime support guarantee for an additional charge.
  • Guarantee Moves With The Owner: If the owner moves to another location, the guarantee continues to be valid, either for the life of the dog, or one year from the date of the first lesson, depending on the service. If there is a Bark Busters therapist reasonably close by, services will be provided at no charge. If a trainer is not close by, Bark Busters will provide assistance by phone and email. People who move to parts of the world where Bark Busters has offices, ongoing assistance is also covered at no additional charge.
  • Limitations of Cover: The guarantee may not be transferred to another dog. The guarantee is not a money back guarantee. If the dog is euthanised or the dog dies the guarantee is rendered null and void. All training advice must be adopted by the owner in order for the guarantee to remain valid. If the owner adopts an alternative form of training without prior discussion with their therapist this will render the guarantee null and void.
  • Over 27 Years of History: Bark Busters has grown to be the largest dog training company in the world, with over 1 million dogs trained. The guarantee has been part of the company since 1989 when company founders, Danny and Sylvia Wilson, decided that it would help to significantly reduce the number of dogs that were being euthanised and provide customers peace of mind for many years. The company is expanding rapidly internationally and can be counted upon to fully honour its guarantee.
