Pick our Brain (it's FREE) - Philadelphia, PA

Have a training question? Don't know how to housebreak your new puppy? Want to start your new pup off right? Reach out to us at info@opbarks.com and we'll answer your questions FOR FREE.

We use humane teaching equipment and methods based in science and natural animal behavior. We don't force dogs to do things to get results. We work on establishing communication and having a dog learn to 'tune in' to their owners. This teaches them to include humans in their decision-making process. We've found that establishing trust and being a reliable, predictable handler can help boost the confidence of a fearful dog and helps a very confident dog learn to work with the handler as a team. The goal is to root the dog-human relationship in trust, give and take, and communication.
