About Rebarkable

Once upon a time, Ali was a new dog mum. She brought home Indie and was pretty overwhelmed – she struggled with the puppy blues – and found the experience of having a puppy wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. 
Ali trained herself to train her dog, Indie, and found a new passion for dog training. 
This then culminated into Rebarkable! Where Ali aims to help new puppy parents learn & train to become the best puppy parents they can be in order to help create more considered dog owners and keep puppies out of shelters.
