About BARKS

BARKS from the Guild is a bimonthly publication for pet trainers, pet behavior consultants, pet care professionals, animal shelter and rescue workers, and all those working in the broader pet services industry.

BARKS covers all things animal behavior and training, specifically in the fields of canine, feline, equine, and avian, with an occasional foray into pocket pets and exotics, as well as advocacy, business, sales, marketing, and consulting.

Educational Platform

In a world where there is often information overload, BARKS provides a platform for current, accurate, and scientifically-sound education pet professionals can trust, helping them stay up-to-date with current research and thinking, so they can help more pets and their people.

BARKS contributors are based all over the world and generously share their knowledge, experience, and expertise to help create this comprehensive educational resource pet professionals can use – both in their businesses and for their own professional development.

BARKS from the Guild is the official trade publication of the Pet Professional Guild.

Our Philosophy

At BARKS, we believe pets have an intrinsic right to be treated humanely, have each of their individual needs met, and live in safe, enriched environments free from force, pain, and fear.

We believe this forms the foundation for a pet’s healthy socialization and a stable environment. This way, we can all help prevent behavior problems, while protecting the overall well-being of each individual animal.
