John Torres Bark Busters Dog Trainer Boca Raton

Home Dog Training in Boca Raton!

Welcome, I am John Torres, your local Bark Busters dog trainer and behavioral therapist in Boca Raton. I have always felt a deep connection with dogs. Their loyalty, intelligence, and loving nature have always fascinated me and I have spent countless hours playing with and taking care of them since childhood. My mom will tell you that I was the kid who largely ignored the people while keeping the dogs entertained at social gatherings whether they were mine or not.

After high school, I joined the Marine Corps as a Ground Radio Repair Technician. During my service, I learned the importance of many core values like discipline, integrity, respect, teamwork, duty, confidence, and willingness to learn. I also learned the value of strong, capable, and compassionate leadership. I have experienced the effect of weak leadership and the stress and chaos that it causes. I have also worked under some of the best leaders in the world. Each of them created safe, secure, and empowering environments that made us all better.

I definitely don’t need to put you and your dog(s) through bootcamp, but I do promise to provide valuable training that will enhance and bolster your relationship with your dogs. I will teach you how to be a strong, capable, and compassionate leader for your dogs and I’ll show you how to communicate with them effectively. Not only will your dogs understand the rules of the house and what is expected of them, they will be happy to follow your lead! Dogs should be a constant source of joy and never the cause of any frustration or stress.

Your dog's job is to be loved, cuddled, and cared for while following the rules of the pack. I've seen and experienced many times how a well-behaved dog can bring limitless love and happiness to their owners' lives, and I want to be a part of that process with you, every step of the way.

Working with John was so easy . He is knowledgeable, and you can tell how much pride he has in his job. I feel like in one day my dog has learned so much. 100% recommend
John was a very engaging trainer and took great care and time with my dog Max. He took the time to go over each task until we were satisfied. I would highly recommend John and Bark Busters.
I had a great time learning. John is very competent and I think I learned a lot.
John was very informative, knowledgeable, and very helpful.
Norm is a rescue and very timid. John was able to get him comfortable and responsive very quickly. The program is exactly what we needed to have a happy pet.
Training was thorough, easy to do, and saw results right away.
John did not waste any time educating the two of us. He was extremely informative and my wife and I already feel like more effective dog owners.
It was great! I see a difference already!
So great and informative. Nacho loved it and so did I. Very thorough training.
Had John come to the house today for the 3 hour training. Did not know what to expect as I'm not familiar with dog training programs. Well I'm extremely impressed not only by how simple it all went but by the literal difference in our 5 month old pup. I would highly recommend John and Bark Busters, especially John. He was like part of the family. It was very comfortable and easy going and the dog did amazing and continues to follow commands. Do not waste your money on other by the hour trainers who milk you. Request this guy today. Me and the wife are ecstatic moving forward with a well behaved puppy. 5 stars across the board! I also have read some negative reports on the Bark Busters reviews about coins in bag being thrown etc etc. John did not ever suggest it nor took any approach in that manner. I suggest you request John and have him out to your home. The voice tones work as well as if you do the homework provided it makes for an amazing relationship between you and your dog. Update….For those of you that I read use shock collars, I suggest you strap one around your neck and turn it up to see what it feels like. Its not a good experience. What John did when he was here was put me in a leadership position for my pup. And showed me techniques to better me and my pups situation. You cant read these reviews and decide without thinking one bad apple don't spoil a tree. There are trainers like him out there that really take the time to help. He was only supposed to do 3 hours and sat and worked with us for over 4. For this I am very grateful and you should definitely try this man for your dogs. With that being said I will post another review following what he has taught us and the progress and I hope you will all consider calling and using him. Thank you for your service as a United States Marine John and thank you for what you did for us and our little girl :)
Lots of info! Wonderful lesson!
John was very thorough. He very methodically took us through the various steps and exercises in the training methods. Everything he taught was logical and evidence-based to be successful. Great experience and will be our support in the future.
We noticed a significant change in our pup. Instructions were clear and complete.
Trainer was friendly, personable, KNOWLEDGEABLE, patient with me, non-judgemental, warm and appropriate with my dog, skillful, helpful, supportive, informative, pleasant, and... my dog loved him and responded so well to him.
John was extremely perceptive immediately upon walking in the door. He was very understanding and patient! We feel very comfortable with his teaching methods. Looking forward to the future!
Excellent, very knowledgeable, and informative. John explains everything. It's a lot to learn but worth it. We need to get our life back and John will help us get there.
This was such a powerful, informative, and positive experience where all of us learned so much practical help to improve and change our precious dogs' behavior. We are excited for the open door of opportunity for a better experience and life with our dogs... WOW!
John was a very engaging trainer and took great care and time with my dog Max. He took the time to go over each task until we were satisfied. I would highly recommend John and Bark Busters.
I could see a remarkable difference in Ginger's behavior. I feel more comfortable with my rescue dog. She paid attention to everything John taught her. I will follow up with all that I learned.
Very pleased!
John was terrific with both of us in helping to give us tools to work with Penny. We learned a tremendous amount on day 1. We look forward to using these tools each day.
I was shocked at how quickly my dogs learned. I am completely satisfied with the training.
Amazing! Couldn't believe how quickly we saw results.
The training session was as valuable for us as for our pet. It helped us understand the puppy's behavior and how to best get through to her. The challenge is now on us. Consistency, consistency, and celebrating every small win.
A life-changing experience. John provided the most thorough, extensive lesson and training which had immediate effects on our puppy. John's patience, expertise and professionalism made the session productive and positive while training our dog. We are very grateful for John's help and understanding in helping us properly train Milton.
