Amazing! Very beneficial for my 5YO boxer, he went into the 3 week training (being shy and a bit rebellious) and came out a very well behaved dog. I'm very grateful I found them and very thankful to Oscar for the training he's provided not only to my baby but also to me. Highly recommend Barks 5th Avenue. Great experience from the first time I requested info to the time the hand over happened. Grooming and daycare was also very good. Chowder will definitely be visiting daycare there and next is puppy training for my boxer. Old dogs can learn new tricks!Jan 31, 2016Verified
Mike did a great job with our dog Gunner. I was literally pulling my hair out and was ready to kill ( not really) our dog or return him to the shelter (which I couldn't do either). He now walks Great on a leash. Knows his place when he is in trouble. He is only 8 months old. I am so glad we brought him to Barks. And he loves coming to daycare. Thank you.Feb 3, 2015Barks 5th Avenue's reply
Ms. S, Gunner graduated with honors! So glad you gave us the opportunity to work with him. Hope to see you soon!
We are so thankful we found Pennie, Mike, and Barks 5th Avenue! Our border collie, Watson was an improved puppy when we picked him up from the board and train boot camp. I even got teary eyed when we saw all he had learned and how well behaved he was in just a few weeks. Mike took the time to teach us what we needed to know for quality carry over in home training and it worked like a charm. Mike and the Barks 5th team will give you the tools you need for success. What's even more impressive is how much everyone cares. We always feel comfortable asking follow up questions after training sessions with Mike and our Barks 5th friends always make the time to educate and share their experience. Makes for happy dogs and happy owners. We also LOVE that Watson gets visibly excited when we walk into Barks 5th. We couldn't be more pleased that every time we go out of town Watson now has his home away from home with his friends at Barks 5th where he can frolic with other dogs in daycare, receive additional training sessions with Mike and come home freshly groomed and smelling squeaky clean. Do yourself a favor and make the investment you will enjoy for years to come... Begin with training sessions at Barks 5th Ave right away! I guarantee you'll start here, but stay for all the wonderful things this place has to offer.Feb 6, 2015Barks 5th Avenue's reply
Ms. C, Thanks for allowing us to share time with Watson! He is extremely smart, and was a delight to have here at the training HQ. Hope to see you soon!
Oscar was very professional and gave us all the answers to questions we asked, hoping our dog does as well as others.Jul 15, 2019Verified
I couldn't be more happy. Oscar is awesome! He is so patient and quiet while working with the dogs. I wish I lived closer to their location so that I could leave Bella there for doggie day care. I highly recommend him as a trainer. Barks 5th Avenue was the best choice I could have made.Nov 19, 2018Verified
- 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.
