Meet Our Team of Dog Specialists.
Barking Up Trees was founded in 2012. Our mission since day one is simple: Enrich the daily lives of dogs and in turn, that of their families. We accomplish this by offering a specialized pack walk service, private walks, visits for puppies and senior dogs, and effective, dog-friendly training.
FOUNDER | PACK WALK SPECIALIST & TRAINER
Jeff started Barking Up Trees in 2012 with his golden retriever, loyal companion and side kick, Rosco (pictured left with blue bandana). They have pack walked more than 20,000 kms with hundreds of different dogs over the last 10 years. They also work with puppies for early socialization and help rehabilitate reactive, fearful and on occasion, aggressive dogs.
Continuous learning from industry experts in conjunction with 10+ years of hands-on experience has helped Jeff become an avid dog handler, walker and trainer.
