Meet the Team
Bark Collective was founded in 2012 by owner Jillian Schutt, with the vision of creating a fun, safe, and all inclusive company to meet every pet and owners needs. By combining six years of applied behavioral analysis from her previous career with a love for dogs, she has successfully created a well known and trusted brand. She is passionate about teaching each client how to properly communicate with their dogs using behavior modification and positive reinforcement which, ultimately, changes dogs lives for the better. As leader of the pack, she takes pride in training every one of the employees to ensure your dogs are safe, loved, and having the best day ever!
Dan joined the Bark Collective team in 2018 when he moved to Newport Beach and proposed to Jillian! He fell in love with Jillian and the dogs fell in love with him. With a Biology degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience, he has a special connection with each and every one of the dogs he comes in contact with!
Kylie has been one of our lead dog-walkers since 2018. Her cool and calm presence has her entire pack and our team in a Zen state. Even with 8 dogs strapped to her belt, she walks as if it’s just 1. Kylie is certified in animal naturopathy, dog nutrition, and holds a PetCPR+ Advanced Certification. You may wish she was walking you instead of your dog!
Abby loves your dog! She may love your dog more than you do. The amount of care, love, and dedication to each and every dog in her pack is unparalleled. She will know if your dog didn’t sleep well the night before, or ate something off the dinner table, or has a new best friend. Abby has been an amazing pack-leader since 2017 and has threatened to steal multiple dogs over the years.
