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!

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.
