About Me

Do you know what prompted me to become a Bark Busters trainer? Years ago, I was frustrated with my own dog’s behavior…jumping up, barking, etc. So my wife and I called Bark Busters to help. Yep, we were clients first. And the natural methods made so much sense, and were so effective, that I decided to become a Bark Busters trainer myself. That was 8 years ago. Fast forward to today, I’ve trained hundreds of dogs and their owners. It is challenging at times, but that is far outweighed by the results- happy dogs and happy families.

Over the years, I’ve trained so many great dogs and their people. No two households have been the same, and I enjoy finding ways to tailor my approach to fit the needs and strengths of each family. My favorite thing about my work is seeing peoples’ reactions when their dog behaves for the first time: stops barking, stops jumping up, stops barging out the door or crate. People say, “Wow, I’ve never seen my dog do that before!”

I grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, and have always loved animals, and have worked with them in various capacities. I have worked with dogs at vet hospitals and the Montgomery County Humane Society.

When I’m not working, I enjoy playing guitar, working on my car, and of course, spending time with my wife, daughters, cat, and dog, Radar (named, of course, after Radar O’Reilly from M*A*S*H).

Does Your Dog

  • Bark uncontrollably and jumping up?

I have been a professional dog trainer for more than four years and have successfully trained hundreds of dogs throughout Northern Montgomery County, (Also in Howard, and Carroll Counties) including Clarksburg, Damascus, Gaithersburg, Lisbon, Montgomery Village, Mount Airy, and Woodbine and Mount Airy.


By using the Bark Busters home dog training method which has succeeded where other methods have failed. Why? Your dog can't speak English and you can't speak dog, so miscommunication is bound to occur. We teach you to speak to your dog in a language he understands. Simple. Effective. Fun.

Here's What You Can Expect From Bark Busters

Home Dog Training
We come to you, because your home, yard and neighborhood are where most of the problem behaviors occur. Puppy classes often rely on a "one-size fits all" approach which doesn't take into account your dog's individuality.

  • First, we develop a personalized dog behavior modification plan based on your goals and the dog's unique personality and temperament.
  • We will address ANY behavioral issues your dog may display including aggression, anxiety, barking, chewing, digging, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry, and more.
  • We start out indoors but will progress outside where you may have issues with socialization with other dogs or leash pulling.
  • The first dog training sesion will last approximately 2 - 3 hours. Then we give you homework. If you reinforce our techniques 10 - 15 minutes/day, you'll be rewarded with a well-behaved dog!

Positive Reinforcement
Trust, clear communication and understanding will permanently change your dog's behavior versus short-term treat training or force.

  • Our methods are based on positive reinforcement - no shock, prong or choke collars.
  • We don't use harsh techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior.

Effective Dog Training
You will learn more in our first lesson than a "class" environment that may last six weeks! Don't yell, bribe with treats, or put up with behavior issues when you can learn to clearly communicate with your dog after one meeting with Bark Busters.

  • Dogs don't understand English any better than Greek! You don't realize that as a dog owner, you often give them mixed signals and jumbled commands. You have to learn your dog's language versus the other way around.
  • Using body language and voice tones, we will teach you to communicate with your dog in a language he understands.
  • The result? He will learn to trust you, listen to you and feel less stressed!

Vet Recommended
Many of the veterinary clinics throughout Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Damascus, Mount Airy and Montgomery Village recommend Bark Busters because they know our methods work and are longer lasting and healthier for the dog than other training methods.
