Opportunity Barks Behavior & Training

Dog Trainer

We use practical, modern, humane and scientifically proven methods. This means we never do (or coach you to do) anything that would cause your dog pain—or to fear, mistrust or be intimidated by you. We stand by this, even for the many challenging cases that come our way.

Granted, it's hard for an average dog owner to know what's right, but trust us when we say you can get results without doing anything that weighs on your conscience or makes you feel unkind. Building a good relationship with your dog is key and we can show you how. Read more

    I was very sad, tired and frustrated after I was given a puppy, much less a pitbull, and losing my two beloved terriers all within a month of eachother. I hadn't trained a puppy in over 11 years. My two terriers were so well behaved and small that I didn't know where to begin as my new baby was growing so big and strong. Alyssa and Leigh are amazing with my baby pitbull, Dee. My hyper baby was destructive and fearful. I didn't have the knowledge nor the patience for her as I was still grieving. Opportunity Barks was exactly what we needed. She's gained confidence and manners. She's improving week by week. She's learning and letting out that puppy energy in the interim. What a relief. Love em!

    Nicole, thank you sooo much for your kind words. We're so grateful for the amazing people and dogs we get to meet and work with and glad to have Dee in our crew. It's been so much fun to see her learn and thrive with us!

    We love Opportunity Barks! Our pup is always thrilled to be dropped off for day school and Leigh is amazing with her. Not only does she help while Josephine (our lab) is on-site but she is always willing to answer questions/provide tips via email or over the phone for us when we are out in the real world. Good stuff!

    Leigh has been a life saver for the year old lab mix we rescued in 2016. We were struggling to know how to work with Daisy's challenging behaviors, which looked like aggression from the outside. ... Our pup came to us crate trained, which we loved, but now that she's older and we've built trust, she is able to sleep all night on a bed in our room. I highly recommend Opportunity Barks for compassionate, humane dog training solutions!

    Opportunity Barks is fantastic! Leigh and all her staff have a wonderful way with dogs. We have taken the Puppy Starter class with Ingrid who is great and we are currently participating in Dog School. They are helping me speak dog. We will easily continue on to the next few levels of training with Opportunity Barks.

    To all new (or seasoned) dog owners...it's okay to seek help!! But look no further, Leigh is the best in the business! ... We sought out Leigh's help for our leash-reactive Ridgeback. While he's still a work in progress, I've got the right tools to enhance our walks together allowing both the pup and me to enjoy our time outside on leash. Thanks Leigh and OpB :)
