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.

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