Bark for Help provides next level, relationship-enhancing training for you and your dog. We teach respect on both ends. Respect your dog and your dog will respect you by you proving to be the great leader they want and need. By not being a pushover but also by not being a tyrant.
We believe in balance.
Our Main goal at Bark for Help is to educate owners on their dog’s overall wellness, mental and physical, and help bridge the gap between our world and theirs, learning from them as they learn from us. Dogs are masters at living in the moment and we hope to teach you to do the same. We teach partnership not ownership.
Bark for Help strives to strengthen your relationship with your dog and take it to the next level. We do private lessons, board and trains, seminars, and retreats.

John has taken my Zeus from a bad dog to the best dog:-) he now walks off leash.. Thank you John!!
John helped me with my 2 year old Bulldog which did not like our new puppy. Not only do they get along and play well together, but we accomplished so much more. I highly recommend John, with Bark for Help. More...
We had so much success working with John! Before hiring him I could not walk her on a leash hardly at all, she would pull and yank and every time I would have blisters on my hands, if I walked her with my kids it would be even worse. After one session she was walking amazingly! And now after 3 I feel confident we can take her anywhere with the children and she will listen, heel, and relax. We even took her with us to the carnival last week and she did great! I HIGHLY recommend Bark for Help! More...

As and observer, not a client, I was so impressed with the obedience and calm that I noticed in his dog right away!
