Best Dog Training Houston TX



Welcome to Bark Busters Houston! I have been a Houston Bark Busters master dog trainer since 2006 and have successfully trained thousands of dogs of all breeds, ages and issues throughout the Houston area.

I Can Help You

You are most likely looking at this website because you need help with your dog’s behavior. Regardless of the age or breed of your dog, I can help you understand the issues you’re facing from his or her perspective and then show you how you can change or modify that behavior. Just as children need to know that they have parents who are consistently and lovingly reinforcing rules and boundaries for their behavior, so do dogs need to understand that they have a leader who is capable of establishing and maintaining rules and boundaries for their behavior. My passion is teaching dog owners how to communicate, in a wholly natural and humane way, with their dogs so the dogs understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate behavior and learn to make good decisions.

What Differentiates Bark Busters Houston?

  • Communication. Neither you nor your dog is bad. The problems you are having with your dog is simply a failure to communicate. Dogs learn how to be a member of the pack with their Mom and siblings at birth. Then they come into your home and don’t understand a word you are saying. You will learn to be the leader of the pack using communication that is easy for both you and your dog to understand.
  • Positive Methods. You will find the Bark Busters method to be very simple, kind and humane. Dogs don’t communicate with each other with shock or prong collars or even treats. Therefore, training that depends on these methods rarely works. In fact, Bark Busters is often called in by other trainers when their techniques fail.
  • Immediate Results. You will be amazed at the results you will see in the first lesson and the change in your relationship as you begin to form a better bond with your dog. Most issues are resolved in one or two lessons. You will be delighted to find your chaotic and stressful household becoming more calm and harmonious.
  • Any dog, any issue, any breed. The beauty of the Bark Busters dog training system is it can be applied to any dog. I will come into your home and customize a plan to deal with any issues YOUR dog is having. I teach people to train puppies, senior dogs, dogs with disabilities, fearful dogs, stubborn dogs and more. I can help you overcome:
    • Aggression
    • Barking at inappropriate times
    • Basic obedience
    • Biting or mouthing
    • Chewing everything in sight
    • Coming when called
    • Digging
    • Door manners
    • Jumping
    • Leash pulling or lunging
    • Pool safety
    • Separation anxiety
    • Sibling rivalry


About Your Houston Dog Trainer

I have the unique perspective of being both a dog owner myself and a master dog trainer. I know the frustrations you are experiencing. I have saved hundreds of dogs from being re-homed or euthanized because of bad behaviors. My job is not to judge you – it’s to teach you! Don’t hesitate to call me … I don’t bite.
