Gunnar is doing fantastic under the instruction of The Bark Academy! We attended our first private class and are already experiencing progress. Gunnar is doing fantastic under the instruction of The Bark Academy! Although, we have been training at home, we have learned a few new techniques that will reinforce the training that we already have in place. I would definitely recommend them highly, to anyone who has a dog with behavioral issues or for those, like us, that wish to further their dogs training.
The Bark Academy is fantastic! I highly recommend it! The Bark Academy is fantastic! I highly recommend it! The classes are very affordable so it does not break the bank to get your dog trained. This is one reason you can see why Melissa truly loves the dogs that she works with. Most places are in it for the money and you do not see the best results. The Bark Academy is the complete opposite. I have felt comfortable with Melissa with my dog since the first session and each session brings better behavior from Bear. Bear enjoys it too! I have a crazy black lab who misbehaved and destroyed everything in the house, but thanks to Melissa he has gotten so much better and now I don’t have to buy another couch. Melissa believes in having a good connection with your dog so if you do not want to put in the work during and after training sessions then this is not the place for you. If you want your dog to listen and respect you than this is the place for you! Remember it’s going to be hard at first, but with more training sessions and putting in the work outside the sessions than your dog will improve tremendously! Putting in the additional work will get you faster results as well. Melissa wants nothing more than for your dog to succeed so she is always available if you have any questions or concerns. Additionally, Melissa gives a lot of materials to help you stay on track and check off your dog’s progress. Bear and I love The Bark Academy!
We highly recommend her training sessions I have 2 labs who are going through her training and every session is a huge improvement ! she takes her time to work with both of us and both of our dogs. they both have gone a milestone since we started!! we highly recommend her training sessions and the price is very reasonable!!!
Melissa was the absolute best. I’m so thankful I was able to bring Seven there. She sure misses Melissa. You taught me and seven so much. She is a joy and we practice every day. Seven loves to practice she finally rolls over and now she can speak and whisper. She will do about anything for a treat. Thank you For being the best trainer I could have hoped for.
I paid for 6 classes for my puppy a couple of months ago. The owner contacted me to let me know that the classes would have to be rescheduled due to her mother dying. Of course I had no problem with that and told her I understand. She said she would call me to reschedule the classes but months later I still have not heard from her. I was not upset about this as I can only imagine how hard it would be to loose my mom however I contacted her multiple times to see when we could get them rescheduled or too see if I could just get a refund so that I could take my puppy somewhere else. We was having a lot of problems with the new puppy and really needed assistance. Still has yet to return my calls or messages.
Melissa is great and so patient! Melissa is great and so patient.. She works so well with our dogs , a St Bernard and a Goldendoodle!! I highly recommend her and she’s even local for me!! Plus, she has everything you need for your beloved dog!! She even got Bentley fitted for a harness tonite so now he can’t drag me!! I’m in control thanks to Melissa!!
I can't give a better recommendation than spending my money with someone. Lucy and I had a great experience for our first lesson! Melissa spent some time to assess what Lucy's current level of training was showed us a few new commands and gave us homework to learn and re-inforce. Because of Melissa's great attitude and obvious love of dogs and training them, I signed up for a six week course. I can't give a better recommendation than spending my money with someone, and I know Lucy and my family are going to really build a stronger bond.
Training was very good, we took our german shepherd in because he got aggressive around other dogs and all the training showed results, he learned sit, leave it, come, down, stay and many other things, he is easier to walk on a leash, and today he walked in front of another dog and he did not bark or jump at him, she is very attentive and patient, i highly recommended the bark academy!
