WANT to have a much better control over obedience?


This program combines basic obedience to give you a better control with working on the specific issues that you are having. The trainer will come to your house and will work closely with you and other family members to put you back in control, rehabilitating your dog and helping to live you both a happier life.

We will also evaluate what changes can be made in the dog’s environment and lifestyle to help in the process of improving your dog’s mental state and decreasing their current reactivity to certain things in life eventually allowing to train them out of the current unwanted behaviour.

This program will help you with:

  • Decreasing reactivity towards other dogs and/or people
  • Desensitizing reactivity to specific issues

  • Decrease (seperation) anxiety

  • Down

  • Watch – the dog looks at you

    • Dogs who have shown aggression or aggressive behavior towards other people / animals

    “Bark & Birch has been a god send. Our 2 year old PUG was destroying everything, their 2 week course made such a difference”
