Who runs this operation, anyway?
BARK! has been Melissa's passion since 2009! She has worked with animals for most of her life. Before BARK! Melissa worked at both the Denver Zoo and the Minnesota Zoo training and caring for various animals. She volunteered for the Raptor Education Foundation before that. She also worked as a vet tech, caring for dogs, cats and birds, and assisting the vets in surgery. All the training she's ever done has been based on positive reinforcement. She has also traveled to six continents researching and observing animals.She has one amazing German Shepherd mix named Cinnamon, who rescued Melissa in 2012 at BARK! The NEW BARK! is Melissa's dream come true! A safe, inviting, dog friendly space to call home.
