Mesa, Arizona, Sept. 15, 2021: Innovative pet product maker BarxBuddy is excited to announce that Sara Ochoa D.V.M. has joined the team as the company’s official veterinarian.

“We are very excited to have Dr. Ochoa join the team,” said Doug Johnson, co-founder of BarxBuddy. “After more than a year of searching for just the right veterinary expert to represent the BarxBuddy brand, we couldn’t be happier.”

Dr. Ochoa is a licensed veterinarian based in Texas, where she specializes in treating small and exotic animals. She’s also a pet-parent to two dogs, one cat, and a tortoise named Monkey. As the official BarxBuddy veterinarian, Dr. Ochoa will be consulted during product development, and she’ll contribute to the BarxBuddy blog.

“I’m very excited to partner with BarxBuddy,” Dr. Ochoa said. “Many other ways of training dogs, like obedience schools, can be very costly. This is a very small, affordable device that you can take with you to use every day when training your dog, and it works.”  Dr. Ochoa uses the BarxBuddy ultrasonic trainer on her own poodle mix, who loves to bark.  “We are teaching an old dog a new trick and have helped decrease her barking,” she said.  The BarxBuddy Ultrasonic Trainer is a hand-held training device that’s used to get a dog’s attention while they’re doing unwanted behaviors so their owners can teach them good behaviors. This is part of the company’s Train, Treat, Repeat positive-reinforcement dog training philosophy.

BarxBuddy also carries grooming products, healthy training treats, and toys designed specifically for high energy dogs and dogs that suffer from separation anxiety.

ABOUT BARXBUDDY: BarxBuddy was founded in 2019 in Mesa, Arizona, by three dog-loving friends who were looking for a humane and inexpensive way to train dogs. The official BarxBuddy ultrasonic training device was released in 2020, and shortly after the team added more innovative products to their online store.

OCHOA: Dr. Sara Ochoa is a doctor of veterinary medicine who graduated with a bachelor degree from Louisiana Tech University followed by a DVM from St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. She practices at Whitehouse Veterinary Hospital in Whitehouse, Texas.
