We're very thankful to Kris Stone for helping us out with out little one.

We have a handsome 4 months old Blue Nose Pitbull, of course he had puppy behavior, biting our hands while petting him, biting chairs and pretty much whatever was in front of him, jumping at us as well , not paying attention of what we wanted him to do. After Kris trained Lucky, he came back understanding the basic commands, he knows that "No" is no without chasing him, no more jumping or irregular behavior, he's also well potty trained. I Would definitely recommend Kris as a trainer for his good work and devotion to the dogs. More...

My trainer, Sunny G, literally changed my dog. Apart from the fact that she is extremely nice, she is an amazing trainer. My dog, JV, used to behave horrible and now I can’t leven recognize him because of how well he is behaving . I can now actually get my homework done and have a normal life with a happy dog that is well behaved. I will be forever grateful with Sunny! More...

I took Rocky, my two-year-old german shepherd to Bark and Birch about 2 months ago- my dog is now completely happier, calmer and has formed a new and stronger connection with me . Anthony the trainer in Chicago is an amazing trainer! He taught me so much about how to interact and understand my dog. Anthony approaches the class in a very clear and professional manner. He gives the dogs love and kindness. What I appreciate most is Anthony's sensitivity to the dogs- he is always fully aware and understand the dogs needs/being at every given moment and teaches me to do the same. He is gentle and works with positive reinforcement to the dog always!!
I will recommend Bark and Birch dog training with all of my heart!!!!

Bark and Birch and the trainer Jay in Kentucky, took my 1 year old Bernese Mountain dog/Labradoodle mix for boarding/training for three weeks. My dog came back more calm, well adjusted, was able to walk quietly by my side and would come sit and stay on command as well as an excellent heel...on and off leash. The training is worth every cent and more and I highly recommend boarding/ training with Bark and Birch . The change in my dog's maturity and skill was amazing. He has a remarkable ability to access a dogs needs and temperament and adjust his approach so the dog becomes calm, happy and confident. Highly recommend, 10 stars if I could! More...

Dog Training

We rescued 2 dogs from the shelter in Aug. 2020. They were inseparable, shaking and scared of human touch. The safest place they felt was under our kitchen table. To put a leash on them was a workout. Winston, the terrier mix, was terrified of everyone. Remy, the hound mix, was a bit more confident
but aggressive when cornered and bit the veterinarian. I contacted Bark & Birch and they recommended the 4 week training. Anthony Cavallo was our dogs trainer. Every day we received videos of his training sessions with our dogs. Plus extra tips we can do at home. We now have 2 different dogs! Winston & Remy love to go on walks & car rides! The leash is not an issue any more. They are more calm with other members of our family. They sleep in our bedroom in their own beds! Winton's groomer was impressed & said money well spent! Winston was calm. It was easy to bathe, trim his coat & nails. Highly recommend Bark & Birch. But most of all Anthony Cavallo!! He is an excellent trainer! So good with my dogs & you can tell they loved him.

I couldn't have asked for anything better for myself or both my boys. Kris, our trainer in Houston, TX EXCEEDED any expectations I had! Both my male doggos had to attend obedience/anti aggression training. Needless to say -- both boys are happy, healthy, and living their very best lives thanks to Kris. He worked diligently with both dogs, personally, to make sure it was safe to send them both home. Levi and Scout are so lucky to have had Kris as a trainer, and literally still love seeing him after the fact. They are much better behaved, calmer, excellent recall, obedience, all the things. SO improved around each other, other dogs, kids, and people. Literally the best thing I ever did for me and my dogs. More...

I came across Martha's post on bark where she talked about JOHN, a professional expert reachable at (johnspyful @ gmailcom) who helped her out a month ago. It's hard to put in words how much of a genius he is and also can't stop thanking him for helping me through my divorce case. in my own case the money wasn't the problem and i can gladly say every penny spent was worth it. I have referred some of my close friends to him and all have been immensely satisfied with the top notch hacking service he offers. To whoever is lucky enough to read this its a fresh start for me and i am only doing this for those genuine people out there who would want the services of a professional investigator.

Dog Training

About 8 weeks ago our 18 month rescue dog, unexpectedly bit another dog. We were out walking as usual and he came across a dog he clearly didn't like and went on the attack. Thankfully neither dog was badly hurt, but it was really upsetting. Looking back, the previous few weeks he had become a little more snarly at the dog park, but we didn't think anything of it. After the biting incident I knew we had to fix the situation, or we'd end up scared to take him out, be constantly nervous and thats not good for us or the dog. As it was we had some issues on the leash with him and his pulling we were already trying to sort.

I reached out to a few dog trainers to see what to do. Bark and Birch immediately called me and we discussed the issues. We agreed that 4 weeks board and train would be the best option, where Scout could be assessed and a plan put in place. Our trainer was to be Tom.

Tom was amazing!! He called and we discussed the issues, he was reassuring, really professional and really understanding. I felt like a bad dog parent, to not be able to know what to do or control him. Tom made me feel so comfortable i knew there was no judgement. Then to find out Tom had been training K-9s for the police department, just gave me that added assurance.

What was even more amazing was that they could make it work so that Scout could get picked up in the next couple of days. I wanted to get started as soon as poss. to minimize the occurrence of any other incidents.

The day came for Scout to be picked up. Tom was amazing. He and his wife came and collected Scout. My boyfriend and I were both upset, but Tom was great and sent photos of Scout at his home, with the family as soon as he got home.

Over the course of the 4 weeks Tom called regularly, shared videos and photos, and seeing Scout so happy in his training, constantly wagging his tail, playing in the garden and making progress was a joy to see. I knew he was in good hands. Turned out Scout had anxiety around big dogs.

Well, the good news is, three weeks since Scout came back to us, he is perfect on the leash, no longer anxious around other dogs, and I have things to look out for and tips and tricks to keep him that way. We both are so much more confident with Scout. He is happy, healthy and chilled.

Tom and his family are truly part of our family. We continue to share messages and we send him videos of Scout. I can not say thank you enough. If you have any concerns about a board and train option, please don't. Your dog will thank you for it. And with Bark and Birch and Tom, you need never have any concerns. Thank you Tom, and the team at B&B.!

My 8-month old Weimaraner participated in the board and train program under Manny. His unrivaled experience proved invaluable for Charlie and he came back home knowing basic commands, leash training, crate training, and obedience . Manny sent me multiple progress videos daily and explained in each video what he was doing and how to continue the training once Charlie got home. I highly recommend Manny to anyone looking to teach their dogs discipline and obedience. Manny is thorough, consistent, and highly knowledgeable. He certainly went out of his way to ensure Charlie was receiving the catered training he needed. I am very impressed. More...

***This deserves more than 5 stars***

We took our 2 dogs to Lauren and she was amazing with them! One of our dogs did a 4 week rehabilitation with her and the other did a 3 week custom program. She made sure they were both comfortable. It's amazing what she can do in what seems like such a short time. We couldn't even let our dogs in our backyard alone because of how bad they were fence fighting. They can now run freely in their own space. Lauren was so sweet through the whole process and sent pictures or videos daily. Highly recommend if you're looking to have your furry one trained!! Thanks again, Lauren!

Dog Training

I was a dog handler and know how much work and especially patience goes into K-9 training. I also know that being a handler, I know very little about the actual methods that go into achieving the incredible results I saw in my GSD Jake. Jake came home after two weeks with his Bark and Birch trainer Tony and demonstrated complete obedience. The fact that Tony was able to get Jake to the level of performance he was demonstrating is nothing short of amazing. The training at Bark and Birch is second to none. One of things I truly appreciated was the communication from Tony on a DAILY basis. I was kept up to speed on every aspect of Jake's training including photos and videos. Another thing I am impressed with is the level of maturity jake is demonstrating. It is far from his 13 weeks. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that knowing something about K-9s, I would not and will not trust anyone but Bark a d Birch to train Jake. I will be going back to this company again for Jake's protection training. You can't go wrong with Bark and Birch. More...

Hes a smart lil'guy and he took to her training right away. I also learned things about my dog, the way I speak and how to follow through with the skills and tools she has giving me. I knew the very basics and this is the first puppy ive owned, thank goodness I found this company amd they sent me Brittany! More...

Dog Training

I placed my dog into board and train for a variety of issues- leash pulling, inconsistent obedience with commands- to name a few. My puppy is quite stubborn and has a big personality, but through her work with Kristi Mallett, I am shocked by her new abilities and skills. Kristi updated me daily over the two weeks, and thoroughly explained every technique she was using with my dog. Kristi clearly loves animals and is an expert at managing difficult dog behaviors. At the end of the two weeks, Kristi spent an afternoon with me and my dog, teaching me the techniques to maintain my dog’s new behavior. I am incredibly thankful to Kristi for keeping my pup safe and healthy, while creating a whole new communication style between me and my dog. She knows so much about dogs, how they think, what motivates them, etc. and her knowledge is invaluable. If you are able to request Kristi, I can’t recommend her enough. More...

Efficient and prompt on reply. Great referral. The trainer is awesome!

Hands down my 'go to recommended trainer' for Los Angeles. I work with a dog rescue specializing in Belgian Malinois, which are not easy dogs.

I've taken my own dogs (who happen to be rescues) to Kristi, He's patient, calm and exudes a confidence that isn't over bearing. Kristi has offered excellent advice that has proven valuable to helping my shy dog come out of his shell. He was immediately able to turn to my strong, very willful dog and offer completely different advice that was equally as helpful. Two completely different dogs and Kristi had them both dialed.

If ever there was someone who is a natural with dogs and dog training, it is Kristi. We're lucky to have Bark and birch in Southern CA. 5 stars and will continue to highly recommend.

Brittany is as passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable as they come when it comes to training dogs. She trained my puppy with her basic commands, tricks, crate trained her, cured her separation anxiety and educated me on proper diet and lifestyle for my dog.
AND
Not only did she come to my home for private lessons which is SO convenient, she gave me a discount for buying a package of lessons and 2 week board and train program without me even asking!!She is the only person I would ever recommend again for any type of dog training.
Thanks to Michael the booking agent and bark and birch for the fast reply's and service!!

Taurus is the best trainer I have had the pleasure working with during the pandemic. My family and I have had nothing less than a stellar experience with our dog Lexi, a high energy 7 month German Shepard . We started training her at 6 months for all the basics including potty and crate training. Our dog now has good manners, no jumping, completely housebroken after the 2 week custom program.

Our dog is people friendly, dog friendly, loves the outdoors, and enjoys a full life because Taurus explained the importance of training her to have wonderful coping skills. He is attentive, reliable, punctual, patient and kind. Was always available via text or phone. Highly recommend! Big thanks to bark & birch and Gnaro for setting up the booking in the first place.

Jessica was beyond amazing! We thought we had a dog that would be not be able to be trained. After the first lesson, we were blown away with what we were able to accomplish. By the end of the third session, Jagger was laying down on command and walking without pulling on the leash. He continued to surprise us and we are sad the 8 lessons are over! We hit the goals that we set out to achieve with his training and will certainly do a brush up lessons in the future. We cannot thank Jessica enough and the team at bark and birch I will recommend you to everyone!!! More...

Like most people, our dog is a huge part of our family and we have always enjoyed taking him for long walks and adventures. Unfortunately, about a year ago he started developing leash aggression and protective behaviors such as barking, growling, and lunging at other dogs and people. Our dog, Cruz, is a 5 year old Boxer cross pitbull and we learned that this is common for the breed. Being a large dog, it was very difficult for us to control him and we started dreading the walks that we used to love so much!

We are so thankful that we found bark and birch and especially thankful for our wonderful trainer,Lauren . We opted for the 5 week custom program we are proud to say that Cruz was released a week early on good behavior. We can't believe the changes in Cruz's demeanor! It has beyond exceeded our expectations. Cruz's aggression has drastically subsided and we now have tools to maintain this. We can easily take him for walks without having to worry about him lunging at someone or pulling us around town. The training that Lauren provided for Cruz also seems to have given him structure and he's all around a happier, less anxious dog. This was truly money well spent! It turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Thank you to the team at bark and birch in California.

My 5 year old Red nose went for the 4 week rehabilitation board and train with Bark & birch as he was aggressive towards people and other dogs and his behavior was getting worse. It was the best choice I ever made for him, he is so much more calm and happier now, I really enjoy taking him on walks again and can have friends over to the house without having to put him away. I highly recommend Bark & birch for all their hard work with my boy and am so thankful I have my kind, calm, family dog back. Extra thanks to Thomas in New York you were truly a 5 star service More...

We sent our 11 week old staff Reggie to trainer Jo for the 2 week board and train programme as we were struggling with crate training and certain commands. Since coming home he has had 2 naps in his crate - this is amazing for Reggie as before he wouldn’t even step foot inside with the door closed without crying! He used to bite a lot in play and now this has been changed to licking which is fantastic. He is honestly like a new dog Jo has taught him so much and he really enjoyed his time there and made lots of new friends! She kept us updated with daily videos and progress, would highly recommend Jo at Bark & Birch. More...

As Jo was recommended to us by a family who had their puppy trained by her, we specifically requested for Jo to train our 4 month old male Labrador as well. Although he was generally a good dog, there were behaviours that we wanted to tweak such as biting, pulling on the lead etc. and we also wanted to switch him to 2 meals a day (instead of 3), improve his anxiety on car journeys, get him to socialise with other dogs (he would get anxious meeting new dogs) and also allow him to be more independent.

Jo picked him up and dropped him off after the 2 weeks with a detailed handover. She kept us updated daily with videos of his training, making sure to target the specific areas that we had requested. Jo took great care of our puppy and we knew he was in good hands. He came home happy, healthy and with all of the training we had requested.

We have had experience with another trainer before (independent trainer not associated with Bark & Birch) who came in to our house for a short session but it just didn’t help with the issues we wanted to tackle. I highly recommend the obedience training from Bark & Birch because it makes a difference when your dog stays with a trainer for a short period of time. They also learn so well from other dogs being trained. We missed our puppy so much but it’s well worth it.

Big thanks to Jo, she is a credit to your company.

We booked the 5 puppy training package for our new 9 week old puppy to take away some of the stress that comes with raising a puppy for the first time and to ensure we built a good foundation and good behaviours from the very beginning.

The Bark & Birch sales team were very responsive and easy to work.

Our trainer Elly was awesome. She was friendly, understanding, flexible, and built a great relationship with both us and our puppy. She listened to what we wanted to achieve, took down notes and created a good structure for each of the sessions. Elly was able to provide basic puppy training and also address specific areas that we wanted to work on. I would say that this is not just training for your puppy but for the owners as well (which is just as important) as Elly would observe you and how you approached different exercises, and provided useful tips to improve. She made the whole experience easier for us and most of all enjoyable. We would highly recommend this for first time puppy owners.

I had a Jack Russell that had become unmanageable. She would bark at dogs, people, skateboards etc.
I called Bark & Birch to see if they could help. They soon put me in touch with a trainer.
Every day I received a video of progress and this was supervised by Bark and Birch supervisor.
The trainer I had was professional and listened to my needs.
I honestly did not expect such progress in such a small amount of time. Sure, there are some small issues that need consolidating, but you would expect that given the severity of my dog’s problems and the amount of time my trainer had to work on her. But at least now I have a dog that listens, and I can continue with the techniques that my trainer installed to iron out these small problems.
