About Bushwick K9

We are a full-service company that offers dog walking, training and boarding. What started as a one man operation has quickly grown into a community-oriented team of experienced, animal-loving walkers and caregivers, who work under the guidance of founder and trainer, Daniel Nogueira. 


Our Philosophy


When we work with your dog we treat them like a member of our own pack. Whether its a half hour walk or a month-long training session, we give your companion our full and thoughtful attention. We work hard to ensure your pet's individual needs are met by developing consistent and personal relationships with clients and their furry friends. Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind: knowing that your animal is enjoying the happy, well-balanced lifestyle she/he deserves. 

Founder and trainer, Daniel Nogueira, specializes in modern training for the urban dog. His methods are based on relationship adjustment and behavior modification for both dogs and their humans. Through hands-on canine behavioral analysis, Daniel cultivates positive interactions that help you to help your dog. His methods help prevent and solve issues that come up for the city dwelling pup, while also providing you with the tools you need for a long and healthy relationship with your best (furry) friend. 



About Daniel

Daniel raised and trained dogs from an early age with his family in Brazil, and our clients say he has an innate sensibility when it comes to animal behavior. Daniel moved to Bushwick in 2009 where he immediately found himself immersed in the vibrant community of Bushwick dogs and owners.

Daniel's previous experience training and working with dogs gave him unique insights into the dynamics of the neighborhood. He soon began working with dogs and their owners to help them better navigate city life. In no time at all, Bushwick K9 was created to meet the growing demand for reliable, quality pet care within Bushwick and the surrounding areas of Bed-Stuy and Ridgewood.
