I have been a dog lover since childhood. I grew up with two dogs of my own, Smeagol and Wookiee. They were both Bichon Frise, a breed notorious for needing lots of care and maintenance, but those little furballs were my best friends. Whether I was coming home to my own dogs, or visiting some friends with their own furry buddies, I was always the first on the floor to introduce myself by letting him know I was there to play. Now, it's me and my rescue - a white Labrador named Bruce, who is a perfect gentleman.
In his past life, Bruce was a stud for a breeder. He was mostly left outdoors and experienced little-to-no socialization, attention, exercise, training, or care. He was largely a business asset, and not much more. He didn’t know his name and he wasn’t used to the love and security of having anyone stable upon which to rely. After being rescued early in the pandemic and stuck inside with me for more than a year, he developed a very strong case of separation anxiety, and a lingering weight issue.
After months and months of trying to "wing it" with internet research, I had made no substantive progress with my own dog training. I knew I needed professional guidance. I wanted someone who stood by their service and I really needed results. I called Bark Busters and was especially impressed by their Life of Dog Support Guarantee.
My Bark Busters trainers taught me how to "Speak Dog" - to communicate more effectively and put my dog on a path to a long and healthy life. If it hadn’t made so much sense, I would have called it magic. But it wasn’t magic - it was highly intuitive and incredibly effective.
Bruce is a happier, calmer, and more independent-than-ever dog. He has also lost nearly 25 pounds, has more energy, and fewer allergies. Bark Busters was truly a life changing experience for our family.
At my core, I am a life-long educator. Ever since I was a student myself, I have been engaged in roles where I was sharing what I knew with others. I have been a private tutor, a wrestling coach, a test-preparation instructor, a special-needs teacher/mentor, and a high school math teacher.
Once I learn something, I feel a need to share it with others who can benefit from the knowledge. This truth is exactly what led to me join Bark Busters and take the rigorous classroom and hands-on training program and become a Bark Busters master dog trainer and dog behavioral therapist myself. After experiencing first-hand what Bark Busters did for me and my dog, Bruce, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to share that blessing with others. I made the leap, and I’ve been taught and mentored by some of the very best in the world.
I'm excited and inspired to share Bark Busters with you, and your canine family members.

Our dogs showed immediate positive changes following a few basic training commands. Josh was extremely attentive to both our needs as a trainer in addition to our dogs needs. A wonderful experience overall.
Josh made me feel like it was a one-time attack that my dog Greta performed. He assured me she is really a sweet sweet girl and I will continue to watch her body language and recall if needed.
Josh was super thorough in making sure that we understood the mentality behind everything. We were successful in executing, and that Thor completed each exercise multiple times. We greatly appreciate how nothing was rushed, how we felt listened to, and how our puppy was made a priority the entire time!
Josh was very patient and answered all our questions completely. The exercises he showed us returned immediate dividends! We know we have a lot of work to do and are fully invested and excited to take this journey with Bark Busters! Josh really cares about the dogs as a family unit and providing a framework for us all. Thank you!
The session and instruction was intentional, clear, and we saw progress nearly immediately. The path to improvement was clear and we could see light at the end of the tunnel. Everything was clearly explained and the process was inviting, embraced bosco's personality, and has started us on a path to ensure a long and healthy life together!
Josh was very knowledgeable about dog behavior and nutrition. One training session and Shiloh was not pulling on the leash around the whole block.
Our 2 dogs made great improvements in our short session this afternoon! Josh showed us how to work with the dogs on barking, walking nicely on the leash, and how to come in through doors. We are very pleased with the positive changes and look forward to practicing the skills Josh showed us so we can be the pack leader's!
Made noticeable progress and confidence in further progress. Well presented exercises, feeling good altogether!
Josh was absolutely amazing. He was professional, kind, and friendly. My puppy was immediately able to follow instructions after Josh worked with him. Thank you, JoshJames K | Cupertino, California
