At The Barking Lot, we believe that good dog training must be humane, fair, effective and fun. Our two Directors of Training, Wendy DeCarlo and Dennis Damon of the Dog Obedience Group (D.O.G) specialize in behavior and training, instruct & supervise our entire training program.
We provide a variety of training venues from behavior consultations to private sessions, specialized for you and your dog's individual needs.
Group classes are available for puppy, obedience and pet manners, agility, games and tricks. Also available are private and semi-private classes in: pre-acquisition counseling, problem solving, preparing dogs for the arrival of a baby, massage and conditioning.
Our approach to humane training uses positive reinforcement, operant conditioning clicker training and ‘The Third Way’ training. "Our goal in training is to teach owners how to effectively communicate what they want to their dogs, and to build a strong and dedicated partnership based on respect for each other." Proof of vaccinations or titers is required. ( Bordatella, Distemper & Rabies)
