ATLANTA — March 26, 2021 — Barking Hound Village – Atlanta’s largest Dog Daycare, Boarding, Grooming, and Training company – is proud to announce an extension of its training services by being named a proud training partner of the Atlanta Humane Society, to provide exclusive training options and offers to Atlanta Humane adopting parents.

Led by Director of Training Michael Litzky, BHV Training’s certified trainers will work to help newly adopted dogs form lifelong, loving relationships with their new families.

BHV Training provides premier dog training services to the metro Atlanta area, using proven rewards-based training based on learning theory and applied animal behavior. Taking a holistic approach that includes physical exercise and mental stimulation are the fundamental principles of the team.

“Our goal has always been to help dog owners develop healthy, loving relationships with their pets, and there’s not a better organization to work with to achieve the goal of forming lifelong bonds between adopting parents and their dogs,” Litzky said. “We make sure that we aren’t just training dogs, but the parents as well.”

As one of the oldest charities in Atlanta, The Atlanta Humane Society is known for adoptions, but their mission supports our community’s pets throughout their lives. Atlanta Humane adopters will choose from specially-discounted Private Sessions (1-on-1 at home), Group Classes, or a two- week Board-&-Train program.

“The first few months of a new pet family’s life is full of joy, but it’s also a critical time to build mutual expectations and bonding. Training classes offer both pet parents and the pets with the knowledge and skills they need to live happy lives together,” said Catrina Kmieciak, Atlanta Humane Society’s Corporate Giving Coordinator. “We’re proud to be working with Barking Hound Village and helping to support our adopters and their new best friends in this way.”

The new partnership will also allow for the BHV Training team to spend time at the Atlanta Humane facilities during adopt-a-dog days, to help prospective parents with any questions or concerns.


Founded in 1999, Barking Hound Village is Atlanta’s largest locally-owned dog services company, with seven locations across Metro Atlanta.
