21 years ago today Barking Hills Country Club opened for classes.  We’ve had the privilege of working with great students and their terrific dogs.  Many of our students have come back with their second, third, and fourth dogs.    We have had game nights, dog camps, Halloween and Christmas parties, dog birthdays, and much more.  We have had a wonderful time with all of you.

I have been given an amazing opportunity to expand the work I do with hospitalized children and dogs.  It is an exciting time.   Unfortunately, there are not enough hours in the day to work at the hospital and continue to teach classes.  With much sadness we announce that Barking Hills will close training classes at the beginning of September.  Until then, all classes are as scheduled.

We will continue to offer boarding as well as private training and will always be available to our students for help and advice.  Perhaps, in the future, we will be able to offer classes one day a week in another location.  Thank you all for your friendship and please keep in touch.  Send us an email at:  barkinghills@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you.  Susan D. Greenbaum

Most people start training their dog because the dog is doing something that the owner doesn’t like. The dog peeing on the floor, jumping on company, stealing the roast off the table or pulling when on lead are frequent reasons people give for joining an obedience class. Every dog can benefit from taking classes.

The real benefit of taking your dog through obedience classes is the bond that will develop between you and your dog. Of course your pup will also stop peeing on the floor!

Class sizes are limited so that you and your dog can receive the attention you deserve. Whether you want a companion for your children or an obedience trial champion (or both!) we can help you achieve your goal.

We offer group classes and private lessons for those who need some extra help or who are unavailable to attend the group classes.
