About Johnny

Best Dog Training in East Orange County, CA!

At Bark Busters, we clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans at the root of many behavioral issues by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog!

Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.

I am Johnny, your Bark Busters dog trainer in East Orange County. 

A number of years ago, I was being interviewed at Verizon for a position within the Risk Management Department and the hiring Director asked me, “If you could have any career and do anything, what would it be?" At the time, my answer was to open a dog rescue. It had nothing to do with the job I was applying for, but it was the most honest answer I could give.

I have grown up around and with dogs my entire life. I truly appreciate the companionship and bond between a dog and its owner. My dogs are truly my best friends.

Although Bark Busters is not a rescue organization, our efforts to partner with our clients to help owners and their dogs live happier lives together truly has saved thousands of lives!  

I first came to know Bark Busters as a client! My parents hired Bark Busters Home Dog Training to help them with their two Golden Retrievers. Watching Bark Busters methods in action and seeing the difference in my parents life with their dogs is what ultimately led me to become a Bark Busters dog trainer myself. I look forward to the opportunity to have a similar impact in your life with your dog.

Client Reviews

See what our clients in East Orange County have to say

John asked what behavioral issues that needed to be addressed concerning our dog, Ruki. We discussed them, he wrote them down for us , so we had the handout as a reference. He then demonstrated how each one should be addressed and allowed us to handle Ruki during the sessions. Ruki responded well and we were amazed at the end of the training session with the positive outcome we had for Ruki and us. We will be working with Ruki daily and if we have questions we will certainly call John for guidance. We were very pleased with the training session.
We brought home our puppy at 9 weeks old and though I had read all the books, etc., I really needed help with crate training, potty training, etc. Johnny, from Bark Busters, has been our trainer now for 4 weeks and I don't know what I would have done without him!

During crate training Johnny was available via text and phone to help talk me through it. The homework and handouts were so informative. Now we are on to leash/walk training. We have more to practice and learn and I know we will with Johnny as our trainer.

As first time dog parents, my husband and I had so many questions and Johnny has spent so much time talking with us, sharing his expertise, and helping us make good decisions about our pup.

I was hesitant because of the price tag for lifetime membership but it is SO worth it. We have a personal trainer for our dog. And it's someone we trust and can rely on when we have pressing questions. Johnny, and the Bark Busters program, is priceless!

I can't say enough about this business, and Johnny in particular! 5 out of 5 paws!!
Reached out for assistance from Bark Buster’s regarding our recently acquired dog from the animal shelter.

Yesterday, Johnny arrived to train “us” on training our dog. He stayed with us longer than what was allocated, allowing us to work through some behavioral problems.

When he left, we felt confident in being the pack leaders to him with all the training tools he showed and gave us.

This morning, after a goodnight of sleep, our dog who was mentally drained from his training, was tested with the “boundary” and “leave” tools provided.

We were successful with the early results and could not be happier with our decision to use Bark Buster’s and Johnny.

With the continued training for our dog and follow up from Johnny, we feel confident moving forward that we will be better pet owners, and our dog will be happier knowing he is a part of our pack.
We reached out to Johnny after getting a rescue dog that was ruling the roost. We were struggling to integrate him with our cat, despite being told that he got along with felines. Our new Mastiff /Great Dane mix was jumping on top of kitchen counters, stealing all food in sight, chasing our cat with a few scary snaps and we'd even suffered several walking injuries from him darting towards animals. (We've had several dogs in the past and consider ourselves athletic, this was just a whole new level of new-pup excitement). Johnny came to the rescue, giving us the skills we needed to tame our boy, and take him from Kujo to Clifford.

In all seriousness, Johnny is extremely knowledgeable and I would recommend him for any training needs, especially when you see the sweetness in a new pet and just need support gaining control. We've met with Johnny several times, and it never feels rushed. He answers every question while in person or through texts and asks just the right questions to get down to the cause of the behavior in order to create a custom plan to correct it. He is not a one-size-fits-all, do-the-same-thing-for-every-client kind of trainer. He truly listens, checks in on progress and gives actionable suggestions that will make you and your pet enjoy each other so much more. Until he came around, we seriously questioned it our new pup would be a fit. Thankfully, our house is much calmer these days. Thank you so much, Johnny!
Johnny with Bark Busters has been fantastic for our family and our dog. My Aussie Shepherd is full of energy and loves to nip, chew, dig ... After our session with Johnny, the difference was remarkable. Very happy & pleased.
We had just adopted our rescue Bichon, Missy, only two weeks before calling Johnny @ Bark Busters. On his initial visit, he first took the time to get to know Missy and listen to what our issues were. We then went over each issue with Johnny and Missy, then on our own. We were surprised when our session went way over the estimated time, but Johnny understood what we needed to get through before he left us, and we did. We have seen tremendous improvement with Missy, and are almost to the point of scheduling our second session.
We would recommend Bark Busters and especially Johnny Jumper for anyone who has a dog with issues, or needs behavioral work.
We LOVE Bark Busters. We had used them once before when we lived in a different state. When we moved, Bark Busters was right there to help us re-train our older dog in his new environment. The BEST thing about Bark Busters is that it is a ONE-TIME fee for the life of your dog. For the life of your dog you can call BB at any stage and they will be there to help. As I said earlier, we used BB in a different state, we moved, called them and they sent a new trainer.

Now that we have a brand new puppy (my gawd we forgot how much work they can be! :)) Johnny @ Bark Busters has been amazing helping us set appropriate expectations, training tips, etc. He even will help us via text between appointments, which has been not only helpful, but like having an extra support system as we are navigating puppy-hood again! We are forever grateful for him and look forward to our training appts. He never rushes an appointment and always listens to all our concerns and crazy questions and takes the time to answer them all! Highly recommend!

Johnny has been essential to our understanding of our girl Pepper. He is always quick to response and flexible with his schedule for training. He has given us tools to better manage our dogs stubborn nature and encourage her positive behavior. Pepper has become a better family pup thanks to the skills Johnny has taught us and we are so grateful for his knowledge and support throughout our puppy training adventure.
Johnny Jumper is AMAZING!!! He is the "Cesar Millan" of Orange County. Our dog Bear showed significant improvement after just one training visit. Johnny is professional and always goes above and beyond for his clients. Our dog has continued to grow and thrive due to Johnny's training/leadership. I highly recommend Johnny and Bark Busters. We are very happy with the results.
I feel so fortunate to have met Johnny. His love and respect for dogs is clear, as are his teaching methods. It was amazing to see an immediate effect, the dogs understood his communication style and quickly responded to him. He is patient, and takes the time to listen and understand the family dynamics and prioritization needs for behavior modifications. Even after my two dogs were passed out from over an hour of mental stimulation, Johnny stayed longer to work with me and give me guidance for other things to work on before our next session. I have already recommended him to several friends and neighbors, it is money well spent to enroll in this program especially if you are fortunate enough to be in Johnny's service area! 5 stars aren't enough to express how awesome he is!
I am very happy with Johnny and Bark Busters! Johnny is professional and extremely knowledgeable. He has a great understanding of dog behavior and was able to coach us through how to train our dogs Luna and Roo. He responds quickly to any questions you have via text or call and his help has been priceless! I strongly recommend using him and Bark Busters if you need dog training!
Johnny Jumper is AMAZING! He is the "Ceasar Milan" of Orange County. My husband and I saw significant improvement with our dog after one lesson. Our dog Bear has come a long way with his training thanks to Johnny. I recommend Johnny Jumper to everyone and anyone needing quality dog training.
I have an 18-month-old Aussiedoodle that I call my giant fluffy monster. Between moving around a lot, an unexpected health crisis, and lockdown, I wasn't able to be consistent with his training. His anxious behavior came off as aggressive and his barking felt out of control. After the first session with Johnny, not only did I notice a huge improvement in my dog's behavior, but I felt more capable as a caretaker and leader for my dog. I highly recommend Johnny to any dog owner who feels out of their league in training their dog!
Johnny has been great for our pup Mochi. He came yesterday for a follow up visit and has been very patient with him. He hasn't made our sessions feel rushed and is passionate about helping you with your dog. He listens to the concerns that we had to address them first. If you are worried about paying a flat fee and feeling like you're going to get a trainer that is going to dodge you, this has not been something we have experienced with Johnny. He takes pride in his work and it shows! Looking forward to more training as Mochi is about 5 months old and displaying new behaviors each week.

I called Bark Busters and Johnny Jumper came to my home to help with our puppy. Johnny was on time, friendly and had tons of patience. He worked with us and our puppy in a number of areas including walking on a leash. When we needed a refresher Johnny came back and helped us get back on track. I highly recommend Bark Busters and Johnny is a Rockstar.
Johnny Jumper and Bark Busters have been incredible. I had issues with my Pitbull, Lola, lunging at people and pulling on the leash when we went for walks. After a session with Johnny and learning how to properly walk Lola and correct the unwanted behavior the change has been awesome. My walks with Lola are now enjoyable and relaxing. I highly recommend Johnny and Bark Busters. He is professional and knowledgeable and Lola loved him. I promise you will be more than happy with the results.
We have nothing but great things to say about our experiences working with Johnny Jumper at Bark Busters. Our Australian Shepherd pup is a smart dog and we were having a lot of difficulties training him prior to working with Johnny. Prior to working with Johnny, our puppy controlled us. He barked very aggressively at strangers, was not good at walking, had horrible separation anxiety, and did not listen to us if we didn’t have treats on us. Johnny taught us how to speak our dog's language, and immediately after our first session, our dog’s temperament improved drastically. Johnny has been very responsive to all of our questions, and he is very flexible in scheduling in-person training sessions with us. He is excellent at personalizing our training to building solutions that last. We highly recommend working with Johnny and Bark Busters!

We had Johnny over today for our 5 month old Shitzu. Johnny spent a few hours with us and he was very gentle but very effective. He first explained the program and goes through a small video. What's funny, is that I wasn't planning on spending much for dog training but I got the lifetime program and feel it was a great investment. Our lil puppy feels like he is playing when he opens his mouth and lunges at us, and family. Within a few hours, I have already noticed that Milo is really adjusting to the training. He no longer jumps when he wants a treat, he knows to lie down, until I get it for him. I feel so much better because Johnny explains why Milo reacts the way he does. I am very happy with Johnny, I loved his attentiveness and his patience. He answered all our questions and made it easy for us to contact him for any questions. Thank you Bark Busters, we are on our way to a great bond with our baby Milo.
Johnny has been amazing! Our new puppy will be BIG and we wanted to make sure he will be trained and well behaved. Wow, the steps Johnny has shown us work, no doubt about it. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and most of all really cares about your pet. Best thing we did for our dog!!!
Do you all know the saying It's Never Too Late? Well I thought it was too late for my baby to learn. But Johnny assured me it wasn't . I was desperate enough to believe him so I booked our first training session with Johnny. The back story on Midnight. He is a 5yr old rescued Pit Bull. Midnight TAKES ME for a work lol I stress out everyday knowing I have to walk him. I literally have had injuries from Midnight pulling me. So here's the thing, I had to do something! I'm getting older and Midnight has a long life ahead of him. I was going to have to do something no matter what the cost. So I started my search. I was prepared to have to meet many trainers. Because Midnight, because of his hyper aggression, most people won't even go near him. Price, Reviews, nothing was going to matter. What was going to matter was seeing how Midnight was going to react to the trainer . Lol OMG Success! I didn't have to see anymore trainers! Johnny comes to the door. Midnight did not behave. Johnny was just patient. 15min in Midnight was in Love! Midnight just wanted to please Johnny. So now I have started our Homework and I am able to walk Midnight! But here's the thing lol Because Midnight was in love with Johnny I must admit, I have added it to my home training. I say to Midnight..... Let's Go On a Johnny Walk lol Midnight gets all excited lol if Midnight starts to stray, I say the command and it works 8 times out of 10 so in those other times I say to Midnight, It's a Johnny Walk! And he gets in line. Midnight and I are looking forward to our second training session. So the moral of the story is It's Never Too Late Thank You Johnny!
Johnny was a lifesaver for us! We learned (and continue to learn) how to train our sweet but rambunctious puppy. Like many other dog owners, we knew what we should do, but not really how. We're still working with our fur baby, but see progress ever day. Thanks Johnny, for being patient with out fur baby and her parents!
Frank was amazing. He was so kind to me and Rune right away. I was blown away by his training. I had never seen my dog listen to someone so well. He helped with technics for my dogs barking, jumping and pulling.
We did a few exercises in the house to go over basic fundamentals and then we also spent some time outside going over how to walk.
I feel Rune responded really well to the training.
I highly recommend Frank for any of your training needs.
My family and I will continue to go with him for any of our training needs.
It was very helpful. I really like how everything doesn't rely on treats and rewarding the dog. It was very helpful in addressing issues I failed to recognize in my dog and correcting them. It also helped me understand why my dog acts a specific way and how to be able to correct these issues. It is really nice to see that my dog responds to the exercises to see the improvement in the behaviors. There is still a lot to work on but the exercises helped a lot and I can't wait to work for more improvement.
