BRIGITTE BARD is a Santa Monica based dog trainer educating dogs and their people so they can have the best relationship possible. Brigitte offers private dog and puppy training as well as small group trainings for dogs and their people. Brigitte also offers day care, exercise and outings including trail hikes, park socials and beach trips.
Since puppy time is a crucial time for learning, Brigitte has a puppy program that includes puppy socialization and exercise to burn off some of that puppy energy while learning important manners, behaviors and commands.
Since we were not able to spend as much time with our puppy as we needed to during the day, this worked out great for us. Our puppy's regular interactions and trainings with Brigitte has resulted in a well mannered dog that we can take everywhere and we have become dog-wise parents, able to give our dog the best life possible. Brigitte's knowledge of diet and natural healing is impressive and she was able to guide us to the right food for our pup and gave us great referrals for a holistic vet who we love.
thank you Brigitte & Bow Wow!
Brigitte trains in Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Malibu, Venice, BelAire, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills etc...

  1. We love Brigitte too! And give her four paws up! (Four because my brother Leo & Iwere both trained by Brigitte.) We both came from shelters and Brigitte helped us learn the ropes of dogdom as well a gave our parents the tools to lead us and communicate with us effectively. We are confident, friendly, well socialized pooches with a zest for frisbees, long trail or beach walks, open spaces and romping around with our people and other dogs. Brigitte gave us each Good Citizen certificates and fortunately we get to see her regularly for outings and exercise. Because of her work with us, our mom is enrolling us in a therapy dog program here in Santa Monica so we can visit people who need some puppy love. This is quite a different life than the pound... Thanks to the nice people at the shelter and our veterinarian for recommending Brigitte...woofs! Brandy &Leo
