So, Bark days are just about the hottest commodity in dog training right now, but you have questions! I get that!
So, I wanted to chat to you about those questions right now.
How Long Is A Bark Day?
12hrs, and no you don’t have to be on there the whole time, the ideas is that this fits in around your day, around your tasks, and around your life! Because you’re going to have times where you can focus and times you can’t. This big ol’ window is to make sure we have plenty of time to chat.
Can I Book A Bark Day This Even Though I Live in [Place]?
Yes! I’ve successfully operated these for clients in Tokyo, Spain, The UK, and the US – yet to find somewhere where this doesn’t shine. Yes, it does mean that sometimes the time is a little awkward, but we can still get there.
Whatever you’re struggling with?
From a bunch of small questions
To a big project with your dog?
A Bark Day, works.
Ali, Do You Speak [Language]?
I am one of those arrogant people that only speak English (and some seriously pigeoned French, that’s so bad it doesn’t count). So, sadly I do need you to be pretty fluent in English for me to help you. But! One of the huge benefits of this style of training? Is that you can choose how you want to communicate, written, verbal or video. However you learn, is catered for.
Does Online Dog Training Work?
Frankly, I wouldn’t offer it if it didn’t work.
I promise you, with the way I train (Which is actually more about breaking down the communication between you and your dog, explaining to you where they’re coming from and giving an optimum solution for progress?), yeah, it works.
You need to understand your dog, that’s what I help you do. For that? Video, pictures, explanations are perfect.

Why Would I Choose A Bark Day Over A 1:1 On Zoom?
Ever walked away from an appointment with your doctor like “Shoot! I should’ve asked about that, why did I forget? Ugh… oh well” – that happens in an hours training session too. It’s also really hard to discuss, dig in to a problem and find a root cause and find an appropriate solution together in an hour.
This large window, this slightly less immediate demand for information? Means that we both have time to process and analyse, understand and then formulate a full and accurate answer.
Because those details matter in dog training.
That “Shoot, I forgot to tell Ali that Fido doesn’t like his harness” can be a major detail that we need to know in order to sort out fido’s on-leash behaviour (for example).
This means? That as we work through this together, we can workshop, remember as much as possible and send you and your dog on a path to achieving your training goals together.
How Many Responses Will I get?
As many as possible.
I’ve yet to have a single person tell me I’m not responsive enough. Usually, in fact, they’re surprised by how responsive I am. Because for me? This allows me to crack on with whatever I’m doing, keep you in the back of my mind and tune in and out as you need me.
I know, another app, but it’s honestly the best tool for the job in this instance. I’ve tried it on Whatsapp, I’ve tried it on messenger, but it just doesn’t work like Voxer. It’s honestly the best place for us to chat! It’s not an ill considered decision at all, promises!
Ready To Book?
I don’t blame you! They’ve been called “Revolutionary” by some of my clients and it’s given them the confidence they need to walk away and train their dog. Talk about PHENOMENAL! It’s why I love them so very much and why I know it’s the best option for you and your dog to move forwards together.
