With the launch of Barkley’s Training School at Central Bark Philly, we’re excited to provide another in-house service to our customers. Classes are open to all dogs and owners, but our Day Care customers receive advance notice of classes and special discounts.

Today, we are thrilled to introduce our new trainers to you in preparation for the launch of our new training school. Classes begin October 3, 2017!


Christina Micarelli – Lead Trainer

As an animal lover her entire life, Christina Micarelli finds nothing more exciting than working withdogs every day. Christina is a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in Psychology, as well as a graduate of Animal Behavior College as a Certified Dog Trainer. She spent the earlier part of her career working at a local animal shelter as the Behavior & Transport Coordinator and currently is co-founder for an all breed dog rescue called 4 Paws Dog Rescue of NJ. Christina’s approach on training is relationship based. She believes in helping humans bond with their dogs through training. She teaches owners how to better understand what their dog is communicating to them and how to provide rules, boundaries, structure, and of course FUN!

Crystal Williams – Trainer

Crystal got her start training at a local “big box” pet store, and has been working with dogs there for three years. While she was actively training some of the Delaware Valley’s dogs, she also volunteered with three different rescue groups, helping some of our city’s most vulnerable pet population. Crystal is looking forward to joining the Central Bark team, not only as a trainer, but also as a dog handler!

Welcome Christina and Crystal, we look forward to training with you!
