Dog training in Grand Rapids, MI shouldn’t just be a weekly class that only lasts an hour. To get real results with your dog’s behavior, you need trainers who are willing to invest time and energy. Our goal is to make owners and dogs happier together through our services. Contact us today to learn more.


One of our most popular training options is our Board and Train program. Our board and train takes place inside our trainers home and not in a kennel environment. This allows our trainers to see issues that might not present themselves inside a kennel. Our trainers treat the dogs like they are a part of their own family and truly love their jobs!  They enjoy working with all dogs, from very young puppies to adult dogs. We will train your dog on all of his obedience in a vast array of situations.  The board and train will also trouble shoot any behavioral issues you may be experiencing with your dog.  After your training is complete you will receive in home follow up training to ensure that you receive the results that you were looking for.


In home training is another popular service in the Grand Rapids area. The In home training sessions we offer are an hour and a half long and allow the trainer to see the dog in their natural environment, your home! During the lesson the trainer will sit down and talk with you to determine the goals and needs of your family. We believe that each family and each dog have unique relationship and our training is tailored to help mold that relationship.

Another great feature of our in home training is that you can do as many or as few lessons as you like.  Some clients only need one lesson in order to address a specific issue while other clients do packages of sessions in order to fully train their dog.  Our trainers will help you determine the right number of sessions based upon your goals.


Along with our physical locations we have a wide service area. The appeal of the Suburban K9 method is that we believe the majority of dog training should be done in the dog’s natural habitat, their home. For this reason we are pleased to offer a service area that includes, but is not limited to:
