Founder & Director of Training

Meet the Founder and Director of Training for Houston DogWorks, Josh Wiggins. With over a decade of experience, Josh has helped countless clients navigate the world of dog ownership. 

Josh’s experience extends beyond traditional dog training and behavior modification. He also specializes in gun dog training where he works with bird dogs and their handlers so they can confidently excel in retrieving, pointing, and tracking in the field. It's a unique skill set that demands not just obedience, but also instinct, cooperation, and a deep understanding of the hunting partnership.

Beyond commands and corrections, Josh’s approach to dog training focuses on building trust, understanding, and teaching both ends of the leash. It's about creating a harmonious relationship where both you and your dog can thrive, whether exploring your local trail or navigating the thrill of the hunt.

Josh is actively involved in the sporting dog community, as he is a nationally ranked AKC Obedience competitor, a contributor to Front & Finish magazine, and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Program evaluator. He’s also proud to have been featured in publications like AKC Sports, PetTalk magazine, and the German Shepherd Dog Club of Washington State.
