Plus, there’s nothing like the feeling of saving a life and giving a dog a forever home.

We know you’re here to learn about dogs, so we’ve got you covered with articles about every breed you can think of: training tips, nutrition advice, and much more. But we also believe that having a good time is just as important as being informed, so we’ve got plenty of fun stuff to keep you entertained too – like how-to guides on giving your doggo an adorable lion cut!


Meet the Team

At Barks in the Park, our team is made up of a diverse group of dog lovers, each with our own unique experiences and stories to share. We’re united by our shared passion for all things canine, but we each have our own furry best friend who has taught us so much about the joys and challenges of dog ownership.

Some of us are proud owners of rescue dogs, while others have purebreds with champion bloodlines. Some of us are seasoned trainers, while others are just learning the ropes. But no matter what our background, we all share a deep love and respect for dogs, and we’re committed to sharing our collective wisdom and experience to help other dog owners give their pets the best possible life.

Here are just a few of our pack members and their pups:

The Doodle Dynamo

Goldendoodle owner Emily

Meet Emily – the proud mom of two rambunctious Goldendoodles – Max and Ruby, avid tennis ball thrower, and expert belly scratcher.

She knows firsthand the joys and challenges of being a dog parent, from their unconditional love and hilarious antics to the occasional chewed-up shoe.

Max and Ruby are very different dogs, each with their own unique personalities and quirks.

Max is the older of the two and is more laid-back and mellow. He loves nothing more than a good belly rub and a long afternoon nap in the sun.

Ruby, on the other hand, is the more energetic and mischievous of the pair. She loves to play fetch, and she always finds a way to get into trouble, whether it’s stealing socks or chasing squirrels in the park!

The Bichon Babe

Meet Alison, another member of our pack here at Barks in the Park. Alison is the proud owner of two adorable Bichon Frises named Charlie and Heidi. She first became interested in dogs when she got Charlie as a puppy and was immediately smitten by his bubbly personality and fluffy belly. Later, she decided to adopt Heidi, who quickly won her heart with her sassy attitude and playful antics.Alison’s experience as a dog owner has taught her the importance of patience and consistency when it comes to training and caring for her furry friends. She’s always on the lookout for new tips and tricks to keep Charlie and Heidi happy and healthy, and she loves to share her knowledge with others.

As a member of the Barks in the Park team, Alison brings her passion for dogs and her experience as a loving dog owner to the table. Whether it’s offering training advice or sharing cute photos of Charlie and Heidi, she’s always ready to lend a helping paw to other dog owners!

She’s a proud owner of an English Bulldog named Pumpkin, who is always on the lookout for a good belly rub.Emma has been a dog owner for over 10 years, and her experience with Pumpkin has taught her everything from how to clean up slobber to the importance of a good diet for optimal health.

As an English Bulldog owner, Emma is passionate about advocating for the breed and raising awareness about the unique health challenges that they face. She’s dedicated to promoting responsible dog ownership and educating others about the importance of proper care and attention for their furry best friends. Emma’s expertise is an invaluable asset to our team, and we’re lucky to have her sharing her insights and love for dogs with us!
