BARK is a non-profit dog club for agility enthusiasts training in the greater Boston area.
Our members are dedicated to working together using positive motivation to learn the skills of the engaging sport of dog agility. Using agility equipment, we practice to develop better control and communications skills to truly make the dog and handler a team.
We welcome you and your dog to join for SPRING class sessions!
Our classes fill up quickly and sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis. We specialize in positive training methods and utilize tools such as the clicker, treats, and toys to make the game of agility an enjoyable experience for both dog and handler.
