Joshua Martin

Owner / Professional Trainer & Behavior Specialist

Joshua Martin has been working with dogs and specializing in behavior modification for over 10 years. He is a certified AKC trainer and behavior specialist, as well as a licensed therapy dog trainer/handler. Josh has partnered with veterinarians and their staff, working to train diabetic alert dogs, therapy dogs, service animals, and more.

Josh learned a lot from earlier days spent helping the vet hospital down the street from where he grew up in Austin, Texas. Shortly after college, Josh began helping people in his local area with dog behavioral issues. He now continues his work with dogs in the greater Nashville area and often helps with relocation and training in other parts of the country.

Josh takes dog training to a more personal and helpful level, working in parks, backyards, homes, and pet stores. Consistency, dedication, calm direction and repetition can make a world of difference to an animal in need. Josh will work directly with you and your family to help find the root causes of the behavior issue so he can help create safety and security for everyone.
