Our Team

Rachel and Desmond

Rachel Woodhouse is the Owner of Barks on the Boulevard.  Her love of animals started the whole thing!

Though I had little experience with dogs other than my own,  I was determined to work with them. I got a job at a dog daycare, and I knew immediately it was going to be a good fit.  Working there confirmed for me the joy I feel when I have the privilege of being with dogs.  So much so that I opened up my own place! Every day I am able to understand more and more about how these animals think and behave with humans and with each other. I board dogs in my home, sometimes up to 4 at a time – I just can’t get enough! Now, I can confidently say that through my work as a trainer and a dog socialization specialist I make it my goal to provide exceptional care on a daily (and nightly!) basis.

My Training Style

I received my certification from the International Academy of Canine Trainers. With this certification it has helped me better understand how dogs think, learn and interact with us and one another. I love being able to come to work every day and continue to expand my understanding of dogs!

Brittany and Arlo





Brittany came to the big city from Saskatchewan, which is fitting because she has a very big heart.  Leaving her dogs at home was hard for her, so she comes here to get her daily doggy fix.  She has become a full time worker here and we’re lucky to have her!


The minute I saw Arlo I got very excited, because growing up I’ve always had big dogs around. Working at Barks has given me the wonderful opportunity to see dogs of all sizes on a daily basis, and have a job that I look forward to every morning. I’ve learned a lot from the great staff and clients, and I’m excited to see where it takes me!
