Experienced dog trainer Richard Starks leads pups and their parents in weekly, one-hour obedience classes that pin-down bad behaviors and reward good habits. Furry friends learn basic behaviors alongside various breeds and robotic facsimiles in courses designed to make home life easier. Additionally, pet owners practice methods that curb canine urges to destroy furniture and leave empty milk cartons in the fridge. Richard's techniques reflect his experience with K-9 units as well as his lessons from trainers Matthew Margolis, an author and TV-show host, and Tom Rose, a veteran instructor of both dogs and dog trainers.

Although Sue Towler developed a steadfast work ethic during 24 years of service in the United States Air Force, it's her love of dogs that continues to bring out the best of her nature. Before opening The Barking Lot, where she and her staff of canine devotees lovingly provide dog boarding and daycare services, Sue started a home pet-sitting service and a no-kill animal shelter, both of which she still runs. At The Barking Lot, pooches frolic together on a grassy playground during playtime, monitored by the staff in case a debate about the president's dog's foreign-policy experience gets out of hand. At night, boarding pups settle into tiled suites and air-conditioned kennels.
