About Kevin

Best Dog Training in Salt Lake City!

Welcome. Meet Kevin Gonzalez your Bark Busters Dog Trainer and Dog Behavioral Therapist in Salt Lake City. Kevin joined our team from Puerto Rico with strong enthusiasm and a lifetime love of dogs. Coming from an island abundant with nature, he has been involved with animals, especially dogs since an early age. Kevin’s favorite companion is a healthy and happy 11-year-old Miniature Schnauzer named Luna. Kevin has followed in the footsteps of his sister, Karina, who is an accomplished Bark Busters trainer in Los Angeles. He has vast experience with all types of dogs and situations much of which comes from working with the best dog trainers and dog behavioral therapists in several different markets. After visiting Salt Lake City and meeting its great people, he fell in love with the city. Being an adventurist and extrovert who loves the outdoors, he felt right at home in the SLC community.

Kevin joined Bark Busters and has established himself as a local advocate for all dogs and families in search of a professional dog trainer and dog behavioral specialist. Kevin’s understanding of dog behavior, dog communication, and his education as a Master Dog Trainer make him the ideal choice for Salt Lake City residents who need help with any dog behavioral issues.

For more than 30 years, Bark Busters has trained more than one million dogs around the world using our natural dog training methods that are humane and effective. Now we are offering home dog training in Greater Salt Lake City. Let us help you live a happier life together with your dog!

We clear up the miscommunication between dogs and humans - which is typically the root of many dog behavioral issues - by teaching everyone to speak the same language – dog! Our dog training methodology is built on leadership, respect, and trust.

Salt Lake City Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

I’ll start by saying we noticed a change in our dog’s behavior within THE FIRST HOUR of training with Kevin.

We haven’t had much success with other trainers or programs in the past and we wanted to focus on correcting behaviors like barking, jumping and recall with our 5 year old Amstaff mixes. We now have a 10 month old baby and solidifying training for both our dogs has become even more important.

It has been 2 days since our first training with Kevin and we went from having dogs who bark at the garage and jump all over you when you walk through the door, to two perfectly behaved angels who sit patiently in the kitchen, let us enter our home without jumping, and wait patiently for us to call them over for pets and kisses. This training program is 100% worth it and Bark Busters will always have our business!
We had a great afternoon with Kevin Saturday. We learned so much about how to train our dogs. He was so much fun and answered every question. Best of all we had a quiet night for the first time in months. Kudos to Kevin. Wise family!
Kevin is the best dog trainer I have ever had a pleasure to work with. His passion for dogs and life is crystal clear and his energetic energy can't help but make you smile and be happy!! He breaks down training steps so easily and doesn't continue on to the next until everyone 100% understands what to do and why. I learned so much during Kevin's visit that it felt like I was in school learning about the funnest topic and left the session feeling confident. Kevin never made me feel rushed during the session and was more than willing to come back in the future for follow ups, if necessary. It was so easy to schedule with Bark Busters and the price for two dogs was incredible and un beatable! Customer service on the phone was top notch and I was surprised that they work with you/PayPal for a payment plan, if needed. I also very much appreciated the fact that they train in your home and they do not train with treats or collars - just on building trust and security. I received a few "free" items during the session in order to set my pups up for success and was not expecting that. I would highly recommend Bark Busters and dog trainer Kevin!!
Kevin was excellent! He has such a great personality that my entire family enjoyed learning techniques from him. Our dogs are already behaving so much better. I would recommend Kevin to anyone looking for help with their dogs:) We look forward to working with him in the future.
We are so grateful to have worked with Kevin Gonzalez from Bark Buaters. He was very thorough and explained how Canine behavior works. Also, the methods used are very humane. ( no shock collars, hands, probes or treats are used). We also spoke a lot about nutrition, which was very helpful to us. A satisfied dog is a happy dog. We also liked working with the trainer at home in the dogs' space. Definitely something to consider, since so many dogs are surrendered, due to bad behaviors, which could have been corrected. Thanks again Kevin and Bark Busters
In exactly one day after first session patches does all his trainings almost perfectly. Kevin has wonderful methods that really work. Looking at him picture wise he doesn't look like he'd be a handful and now he's not going to be.
Kevin did an amazing job training me how to be a leader. I was very amazed and appreciative of the way my dogs responded to Kevin. They handle better than I thought possible for the past two days. I still have things to learn and lots of practicing to improve me and the way I work with my dogs. Thank you.
Kevin and Bark Busters are incredible! After our first session with Taco we are seeing HUGE changes with his behavior. We had a lot of areas we wanted addressed and Kevin made sure to cover all of them and make sure I felt comfortable carrying over the techniques that were taught. I can’t believe the amazing difference I am seeing in Taco after just one session.
Having Kevin come over was amazing! He gave us a good base to start basic training with our dog. He made us feel confident and listened to our concerns and gave us the right tools to be successful with sugar. We so happy we made the decision to get a trainer!
Kevin is a miracle. He’s so passionate about his job. I was feeling hopeless with my boy but Kevin made a big difference in a first meeting . I have been doing his exercises given by Kevin .Thank you Kevin you’re great . I highly recommend him .
We were doing so much wrong before oh my. Bad case of sibling rivalry that got so bad it broke out in fights. It was terrifying and we were so worried about both the dogs. And one of our pups was getting aggressive toward me as well. We felt hopeless and didn’t know what to do. Kevin came in and began helping us with a situation we thought might never be fixed. So worried we might have to separate our dogs for their safety was tearing our hearts apart honestly. And Kevin came in with everything! Helped give us confidence and the tools we need to mend our little family and help our pups to succeed! It’s going to be a journey ahead but we know we will have an extra hand if we ever need it again! I couldn’t be happier with the experience and support we received! And Kevin was so fun too, joking with us and helping me calm down when I was an anxious mess from everything that had happened. I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone, especially if they worry it’s too much or the situation will never get better. Thanks Kevin! You’re the best
Kevin was absolutely incredible! I have never seen our mini schnauzer respond so well to training! I am so thankful for the time Kevin spent with us showing us how to effectively get our dogs to listen and obey commands! All of the exercises Kevin gave us to do with the dogs at home have been easy to incorporate into our busy schedules. We have tried other training/trainers and have not had success. We would recommend Kevin to everyone needing an effective trainer. We have loved our experience!
I noticed a difference after the first lesson! Kevin explained why my dog was acting out and how to establish myself as the leader. Worth every penny!
I am excited about this program. I love that they come to your home. Kevin was very friendly and personable and I felt very comfortable with him there. He answered all of my questions. He encouraged me to contact him with any concerns. He explained why the exercises will help decrease aggression and what to do while it's happening. One of my dogs barks non stop and after the first meeting, I was able to keep him from going into a frenzy. It will take some practice but Kevin requested I send videos to help him see if I'm doing it right so he can help immediately until we meet again. I would highly recommend!
So excited about this training method. So much progress in the 1st session.
Amazing instruction and help. We were very happy with how attentive Kevin was and continues to be. We’re already seeing improvements and we’re hopeful for the future.
Kevin was very friendly and patient while training my dogs. He gave great tips, answered all of my questions and went above and beyond! Not only was training easier and stress-free on my dogs, Kevin was also attentive and provided additional information and tips for the whole well-being of them! Would definitely recommend to friends to family and extremely grateful that we could work with him!
Kevin was great, well prepared and made us feel as if this will all work out.
Kevin was fantastic ! We are already seeing improvements with Macie after a single session. I feel confident she is well on her way to feeling less anxious and more trusting of our leadership.
I’ll start by saying we noticed a change in our dog’s behavior within THE FIRST HOUR of training with Kevin.

Kevin was very attentive with our dogs and helped me address all concerns. He was very calm and kind with my dogs and I feel better equipped to train them in a practical way. Thank you !
Kevin was amazing! We are already seeing incredible results. Nacho is barking less and listening more! We’re so grateful for the skills we’ve learned from Kevin. Plus he’s an amazing teacher!
Kevin was very nice to work with. He showed us how to “speak dog,” which our two adolescent/young adult dogs responded to. After our first lesson, it is now delightful to walk the dogs (separately) without pulling - a night and day difference with Bex. We will need to work on walking them together on our second lesson! Looking forward to it!
Kevin was excellent. He was knowledgeable and easy to work with. We just hope Poppi responds as well to us as she did him. We learned a lot and need to keep up with the exercises.
This session opened our eyes to understand our dogs’ behavior and to implement corrective measures that our dogs understand, too. We saw an immediate change by the time the session was over. Our dogs are more settled now. We haven’t experienced the barking the dogs were doing after this first session. We are amazed!
Kevin was remarkable! He addressed all of our needs in our first lesson and gave us a list of daily homework. Charlie is learning quickly and so are we!!!
