Let’s get outside!

Birch Bark is happily offering in-person consultations and training sessions in the fresh air!  In addition to our live, on-line services (can’t get more socially distanced than staying home!), we would love to meet with you and your dog in the real world, outdoors, while practicing all recommended safety etiquette. To start your dog on a path to better behavior and to create more peace in your home, drop us a line!

Sending warm fuzzy vibes and wishes for safety & health, from our pack to yours.

What We Do

Private Training

Work one-on-one with us to teach your dog good manners, basic cues, resolve house training issues, walk politely on leash, and more!


Consultations offer friendly, clear assessments of your dog’s behavior and training needs in order to help you reach your goals.

we are here to help dogs and people
