Introduction: With over three decades in the training business, Pennie and her team of expert trainers have found that an individual approach to each dog is key to success. Positive reinforcement, reward-based training in a dedicated training facility allows us to succeed where others cannot. PRICING STRUCTURE Our pricing system for our Board and Train program is quite simple: 3 week training program: $995.00 for the first dog (discounts apply for multiple dogs) ---That covers the TRAINING portion of the Program. Since the dog will be boarding with us, there is also an ADDITIONAL boarding charge, on top of the $995.00. The boarding price varies by the weight of your dog. The boarding charge varies from $23.00-28.00 per night. This price ALSO includes FREE doggie daycare during his/her stay, which is part of the training and socialization program. Normally, daycare would cost $24/day. We get to play with dogs all day long! Who wouldn't love that? :) Helping a family by training their best friend gives us a sense of joy that is found in few other occupations. Watching a family grow closer to their pet is a blessing!

I am beyond pleased with the training my dog Royal received with Oscar. The staff kept me in the loop at all times and Oscar kept me updated with his progress at our weekly meets. Royal is a 6 month old hyper active golden-doodle. With the help of Oscar, he has given Royal the confidence and obedience he needed. I am beyond grateful for the results and Royal has done so well since coming home. I cannot wait to bring my next pup in for training.

We took both our pups to Bark’s 5th for their 6 week training program. We went every Friday for an hour, sometimes a little over. Oscar, and the entire staff, was absolutely amazing! Oscar tailored the training to our dogs’ needs. We have one that had Resource guarding issues and that made feeding sometimes a little bit of a hassle, but now he can have treats next to or with our other pup. He won’t growl at us when we walk by him, we can take a treat away from him if needed. They are so well behaved and of course are still learning but the tools and training Oscar gave my husband and I has been invaluable. We are so pleased and highly recommend Bark’s!

Our puppy Archie just graduated from the basic obedience program at 5th Ave. Archie was a high energy dog who we struggled with bc he always wants to play. Oscar at 5th Avenue has helped us immensely! No more frustration or hesitation about having people over and worried he would be jumping on everyone. We are so happy with his progress we plan on taking him back for the advanced off leash training next year.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing system for our Board and Train program is quite simple: 3 week training program: $995.00 for the first dog (discounts apply for multiple dogs) ---That covers the TRAINING portion of the Program. Since the dog will be boarding with us, there is also an ADDITIONAL boarding charge, on top of the $995.00. The boarding price varies by the weight of your dog. The discounted boarding charge varies from $18.00-22.00 per night. This price ALSO includes FREE doggie daycare during his/her stay, which is part of the training and socialization program. Normally, daycare would cost $24/day.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Our love of animals has drawn us together. Pennie, our founder, was a champion rodeo rider, and her love of horses eventually carried over to sport dog competitions (she is a multiple-winning frisbee dog champion). The rest, as they say, is history!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Our 3 week "board and train" package is the favorite amongst families. During this period, your dog stays with us at our facility, and has daily training sessions with his/her assigned training. We have found this to be the most successful method of training, as it allows your pooch to focus on the curriculum without any distractions.
