About John

large john vermeere

Best Dog Training in Greater Orlando, including Sanford, Deltona, Winter Park, Orange Seminole & Volusia Counties!

If you've come to this page, you may be feeling frustrated, or embarrassed, by your dog's behavior. You don't know what to do, but know something needs to be done. You may have tried other approaches, maybe many other approaches, but are not getting the results for which you are looking.

Good news! I am here to help! My name is John Vermeere and I am your Bark Busters Dog Behavioral Therapist and Dog Trainer in Greater Orlando. I have helped many other clients and families in your situation, and would love the opportunity to help you build a better relationship with your family dog.

You don't have to feel embarrassed, frustrated or even helpless. Even with your prior best efforts and intentions, often dogs don't respond to treat-based or physical approaches to dog training. I partner with you to solve all your dog behavior problems, and create a wonderful and peaceful relationship with your dog. My methods do not rely on unnecessary and constant treats nor do I use physically harmful techniques of any kind with your dog.

I am excited to help dogs and their owners make a great life together and I know with my skills, dedication, and commitment, we can do this together.  It is because of my love of dogs that nothing brings me more happiness than to see a troubled owner / dog relationship resolved and both parties happy and excited about living the rest of their lives together.

I personally know the love that a family dog can bring. They are a vital part of our families. A well-behaved dog brings much joy to a family. Unfortunately, many frustrating behaviors put a stress on that relationship. It is no one's fault. It is usually a result of miscommunication or a lack of understanding. That is where I come in. I will provide you with the tools and support that will give you many years of happiness and companionship with your dog.

Orlando Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Johnny was very professional and really went in depth with us on how to train our dogs. He provided very helpful information and with just the initial session we have already noticed a SIGNIFICANT difference with our dogs. He was very patient with our dogs as well and allowed them to get used to him. This is our first time getting a professional trainer to help train our dogs and I definitely recommend getting a trainer. It makes a difference having someone there to teach you the tips and tricks on what to do and how to teach and train your dog.
John Vermeere was an incredible trainer! My golden doodle has had some minor behavioral issues I've wanted to manage and has separation anxiety from me, not only did John train Theodore but he also trained me! I learned that a lot of the issues that need to be fixed start with the owners. I love that the training is in your home, and he really works with you to make sure you're set up for success after he leaves. I've been using a prong collar to walk Theodore because he loves to tug and pull and after one session with John I won't have to use the prong collar again! He was very friendly, informative, professional and truly understands how to speak the dogs language. Definitely recommend Bark Busters and John!!! Very happy that I decided to get professional training!
We noticed a immediate change in our requested "issue" behaviors. John's advice/council was so valuable - we can't wait to see how Reggie progresses.
Very informative,personal and easy going. Feels like I'm being set up with the tools I need to not fail my dogs
The changes we saw in Teddy's behavior were almost immediate. John is extremely knowledgeable and listenedto all of our concerns. We feel very confident that Teddy will show great improvements
John was great with River from the second he walked into our place. Even better he was phenomenal with my fiance & I. He trained us on how to properly be a leader for our dog.
Very thorough. Touched on all areas we mentioned as concerns. We definitely feel we have some valuable tools to assist us moving forward and its nice to know we can follow up for future assistance.
John was able to set my puppy up in the crate. Usually she cries, barks and howls but I was able to put her in the crate and she didn't make a sound. He is great with my dog and very knowledgeable. He gave me a lot of good feedback on correcting behavior. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Todays lesson was absolutely amazing. I feel so much more confident in walking him for longer periods. The lesson not only calmed shadow down, but also myself. Cant wait to work on everything to get a calmer dog.
Very impressed with Johns ability to read the situation and address bandits behaviors individually. Great response from Bandit. Very comfortable with John
The training was easy to understand and will be easy to recreate on our our own. I am very pleased and my dog showed immediate improvement right away.
Lesson went great. i got more clarification on how to use proper commands. Got better at leash walking,barking and listening.
Arie is a handful and John did an amazing job of showing us how to control her. She was learning within 30 minutes. Very Thankful!
The session was informative and relaxing. We enjoyed meeting John. He was professional and friendly - easy to talk to. We already see a change in Percy especially
Amazing! John's instructions were so effective but easy for us to replicate and continue. I'm so muck more at ease knowing I'm going to have a well trained-trained disciplined dog.
Absolutely Wonderful!
Tremendously Helpful!
John is very attentive and took time listening to our issues we needed addressed. Made my dog feel so comfortable and able to follow commands without excessive force, which is what I wanted. Made sure we all became familiar with how to train her when he wasn't around. Friendly and respectable, Great Trainer!
We're off to a great start! We saw improvement on day 1 and now know how to work with her to progress further. We're excited to soon have a better behaved dog!
John was amazing! We see a significant difference in just one session and cant wait to see where this takes us. We highly recommend John's services for anyone who needs tips for their dog.
The difference after one session in my dogs behavior is unbelievable. He's like a whole new dog. I cant wait to see where we go from here.
John was very helpful and knowledgeable. He gave me the confidence to train Buzz in an easy and comfortable way. I look forward to continuing our training.
John was super patient with Tootsie and us! we made far more progress in a few hours than I had thought possible. Tootsie is a sweet smart little pup, but also super afraid of other people. John showed us some techniques to help us help her. Thank you so much!
Training session went very well. Everything was awesome.
Me and my dog were able to understand training together to build a better bond with the help of John who is great with training.
John was great with Maddie from the moment he walked in the house. He taught us how to be in control of her instead of her controlling us. The difference after one session was amazing ?
Clear & easy instructions. John was a great teacher for both my dog and myself.
