About the owners...

​Karen and RJ Tolodziecki have made their home on the Garden Island for the last 12 years.  As dog parents, they were aware of the lack of options when it came to boarding their own 4-legged kids.  As members of the Dog Fanciers of Kauai (a local dog obedience club), they learned they were not alone in their concerns.

With this in mind – the idea for Bark! Bark! BackYard was born. With an eye to not only filling a gap, they expanded their idea to include daycare and private training.

While Karen & RJ have gotten most of their hands-on experience with their own dogs, Karen has put knowledge into practice by assisting Newton Young (experienced show dog handler and trainer) and the Dog Fanciers of Kauai conduct their group classes. She furthered her learning under the tutelage of Cesar Millan (the Dog Whisperer himself!) and successfully completed his Dog Behavior and Training workshop at his Dog Psychology Center in California.​ In 2015 she successfully completed a weeklong shadow-program with Heather Beck one of Millan's lead trainers. Karen and RJ are determined to bring new vision and innovation to Kauai in regards to understanding our favorite (and often misunderstood) family members. 

"We are excited to be able to provide knowledge and solutions to the dog loving folks of Kauai!"
