About James & Lorie

Best Dog Training in the Albuquerque Suburbs!

Welcome. I am Jim Landers, your Bark Buster trainer for the greater Albuquerque area. In addition to the city of Albuquerque, the areas I serve include Rio Rancho, Corrales, Placitas, Bosque Farms, Las Lunas and the east mountains.

Helping dog owners with obedience and behavioral issues has been my focus and passion since 2006. In that time I have worked with well over 500 dogs on challenges ranging from puppy lessons to difficult behavioral issues including aggression and extreme separation anxiety. No matter how difficult the problem Bark Busters always tries to help. Any breed, any age, any problem.

My clients see their canine companions as family members, and therefor behavior problems become family problems.

Our approach focuses on optimizing the human-canine relationship and is based on simple, humane, dog friendly communication principles. Existing relationships founded on love, are enhanced with trust and respect. The result: Happy dogs and happy families.

That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior.

We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.

Greater Albuquerque Client Reviews

Great, informative meeting!
We were amazed at how much we have learned after the initial lesson. And after just 1 day, we can tell a difference with the new techniques we have learned.
The lesson was so helpful and informative. I really did notice a difference in Milo's leash behavior after one session of the new techniques. Pretty amazing.
We were very pleased with the strategies that Jim taught us to use with our dog Ellie.The strategies make sense to Ellie and over time and with continued training she has learned to follow our lead.Because she was a rescue dog and because she experienced an attack by another dog that resulted in injuries, Ellie exhibited a lot of anxiety. After the attack she was afraid to go outside and had night terrors. By using the techniques and with time and patience Ellie is much calmer.
The therapist first listened carefully to the concerns I had about my dog's behavior. He then helped me to prioritize the behaviors that concerned me most. Even though he (my dog) was in charge, I felt that we developed together a cohesive easy to follow plan to help make both the dog and myself happier companions. I appreciated the rationale he gave me for each modification of my dog's behavior. He was slow and methodical and I understood each step. I felt he truly was an expert.
We practiced some of the exercises. My main feeling was one of empowerment in having control of my dog.
After the three hour session I am really getting valuable knowledge for my money. Totally worth it!
I received great info on why my dogs are acting the way they do and what is needed to help them become the happy dogs they are meant to be.I saw an immediate response to jumping (my grandkids came over at end) and Rusty behaved like he hasn't before. I must admit I got so much info on exercises to do with him, I forgot what they all were but the materials re-explained them (thank goodness) and the ability to call the trainer for added info has already been used.
Charlie is like a whole different dog. He's calm,he sits at our feet to be picked up and the barking is very minimal. Some days not at all.We are Very satisfied.
Jim took the time to listen to me and let me explain our situation.It is complicated.He was a tremendous help.We still have a way to go, but I saw a difference in just 24 hours. I wish I found Bark Busters earlier. So nice to know Jim is so available to us.
I have a lot less anxieties myself knowing my baby isn't so anxious. Love Bark Busters !!
We've been very happy with the changes we've seen in Artemis. His behaviors were unacceptable and the trainings we tried previously weren't much help.Artemis would bark and sometimes nip at guests, taking him for a walk was a nightmare due to his pulling, and he'd even bark at us when we weren't doing what he wanted:He definitely had us trained. We were very stressed about managing him, but now he's a much better behaved member of the family and we know how to manage his behaviors and he's improving to the point that he's well behaved with fewer and fewer corrections necessary. While we've had a few weeks where we've lapsed on our daily trainings, we're well on our way to where we want to be. Thanks Jim!
Jim was very knowledgeable and overall amazing. We are beyond excited to see a change in our dogs and to build a better relationship with them.
Very helpful techniques which actually work! 80% improvement in 1 month.
Relief and assurance that I can keep my dog!
Improvement seen in all three dogs after 3 days.
Jim's advice and training techniques have proved to be invaluable.My home life with my dogs is much more peaceful and they are happier dogs. Before Bark Busters all three dogs were constantly competing for attention which led to chaos and fighting. I will continue to practice the techniques making me a better dog owner and pack leader.
Jim answered each of my questions thoroughly in an easy understandable and tangible manner.Within the first visit I have noticed a change in my dog's behavior. I feel confident with the methods Jim shared with me to be effective in training my fearful dog Buddy. Thanks Jim !
We want to make sure we create a positive relationship and environment with our dogs. Jim was great in providing tons of information in a way that was easy to understand and practice. I'm sure all of what we learned will lead to a great experience for us all.
Buddy is already responding. Today he walked almost entirely with a loose leash, at my side! The vocal correction is working also-stopped barking at workers and people coming to the door.
Really gave us a lot of helpful information. Gave us a clear picture of why we do what he told us to do which allowed us to work with Bobby in any situation. Bobby has really bad separation anxiety , but is definitely improving. Thanks SO much!
Jim worked wonders with my dog Charly in just two days! He gave me great techniques and tools to aid Charly in overcoming jumping , barking, and some major separation anxiety. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!
The dogs responded quickly to the training and it's made a huge impact on everything. My roommate's dogs have also improved immensely, especially her jack russell with recall. Couldn't be happier!
The concepts are fascinating and by in large seem to be working.
We liked Jim's approach to training and found him extremely informative about dog psychology and appropriate human interaction (as well as inappropriate interaction). We selected Bark Busters because they were coming to our home to spend time getting to know us, our dogs, and the way we interacted. Jim listened to all of our questions and responded to all of our concerns. It was an excellent experience.
Great. Jim is a well educated man with his job.
Jim is amazing. The method is so doable. I have already recommended Bark Busters to three families.
