Why Train Your Dog?
A Dog isn't really Happy until they've become fully Socialized within your home and with their other Dog Friends. We have a large toolbox of Dog Training Techniques and teaching tools to draw from, all gentle, positive, and effective methods.
At Bark&Zoom, every pack staff member is a Dog Trainer, so your dog will be training every moment with us. Please note that our Board & Train program requires an Evaluation Day. That’s so we can make sure your dog knows Bark&Zoom is a happy, fun place, and that you will come back for them. So that a day or more of Daycare ensures that your dog is ready to start learning right away!
At Bark&Zoom, we reinforce your status as the Leader of Your Pack with our array of canine training tools and methods. All of our staff are highly skilled and ready to work with your dog to achieve the obedience and behavioral goals that you want.
We design our doggy training lessons to be fun and exciting for dogs of all sizes and mindsets. Your pup will start learning from the first moment they join us at Bark&Zoom.

Bringing home a new puppy for the family is an exciting time in any household. Puppies are adorably cute bundles of energy. However, that energy bundle can quickly lead to behavioral troubles if you don’t get things started on the right paw! From a behavior standpoint, a Bark&Zoom Puppy Consultation is the most valuable thing you can do for your new puppy and your household.
Our puppy consultation program is designed to provide the earliest training possible for your new canine family member. Our staff can work with your pup and teach him or her to avoid behaviors such as:
- excessive barking or howling
We also can housebreak your puppy and teach him or her basic commands such as sit, down, and come. The puppy training program is ideal for puppies of any size and breed.

Board and Train Program
Our Board and Train option is designed to provide intensive yet fun training that will teach your dog to obey commands, recognize you as the Leader of Your Pack, and curb the most worrisome behaviors that may have prevented you from taking your dog out in public. This program goes beyond our basic training program and many of our client call this a “Doggy Bootcamp.”
During the time that your dog is in our Board and Train program, he or she will stay with us and undergo a series of regimented yet gentle and humane training sessions. The Bark&Zoom trainer assigned to your dog will take him or her on field trips to trails, parks and other public places to teach and reinforce expected positive behaviors.
Your dog also will undertake a series of daily lessons to learn commands that will allow for meaningful and safe interactions with other people and animals. The Board and Train program is perfect for adult dogs of all sizes and breeds. It can tame behavioral issues you may have experienced with your pet, as well as teach behaviors that will make your dog more alert, friendly and obedient both at home and in public.
