I have known Comora for many years. She is an amazing trainer. She worked with me and my poodles and makes training fun using positive reinforcement training. Comora has a tremendous knowledge of pet food and all things for your pets. Her new boutique has the best of everything you could want from the food to the collars, leashes, toys, and of course, sweaters and coats for your pet. You won’t find a better boutique anywhere and of course, her training facility is on site.

Comora has trained my pups since day one and they are the most loving/well behaved pups I know. Her boutique has an amazing selection of raw food, enrichment toys, beautiful sweaters, and gorgeous collars! Not everyday you find someone with her knowledge and expertise, she has two poodles and she practices what she preaches! Cillian and Alfie love to go visit, they can get up on the counter for treats and go through a tunnel! What pup wouldn’t like that??? Go by and visit. It’s well worth your while and I promise you won’t regret it! The Canine jewel of Hendersonville!

What a find this place is! It’s stocked with the top of the line toys and foods. And it’s such a fun store to visit, not only do I love it, but my 2 and 4 legged kids love this place!
Everything is set up for a fun time, while being beautiful and efficient at the same time. Comora the owner is amazing, I’ve never met anyone with more knowledge about what the right toys are, what the right food is, and she’s a dog trainer! Positive reinforcement only.
This is my go to place now for everything for my pets! It’s definitely the best store for all of our needs. And I’m so excited go have some training sessions with Comora and my four legged babies! Hey, I wonder if she can help with my two legged kids? LOL

Comora is just amazing! Me and my dogs absolutely love coming here! If you have questions about diet or training, she’s definitely the one to talk to. Looking for a specific harness, toy, or just want a really cute sweater? Take a look around her beautiful boutique and you will find that she has quite the variety of awesome items. I could go on and on forever about how great this place is for you and your pets, but to experience it is quite a different story. Words just don’t describe how great this place is! We love Barkers Anonymous!

If you love your pet you will love this store. The owners are almost always there to make your experience amazing and to help you find exactly what your pet needs even if you’re unsure. The layout is open and not cramped but the inventory is abundant. You will always find what you are looking fore here. They take the guess work out of reading to make sure the product is a good choice for your dog. If they wouldn’t feed it to their dogs, they wouldn’t want you to either which I love. My dog has been in the training class for weeks and the outcome is much better than I could have imagined since he was only 3 months old when we started. I will definitely be enrolled in the next class.

Barkers Anonymous is an amazing pet boutique, and my dogs’ favorite place to visit! There’s a huge assortment of quality foods and treats, interactive games and toys, adorable sweaters, beds, harnesses, collars and leashes. Owner Comora is a certified dog trainer who only uses proven positive reinforcement methods. Using a clicker and tasty treats, she had my dogs performing new tricks within minutes! The dogs loved the store’s interactive features like the ramp, tunnel, and fuzzy seating area. The store is laid out beautifully, with unique items that I haven’t seen elsewhere.
Barkers Anonymous is such an amazing resource. Our baby is a rescue pup and is full of energy. He needs specific enrichment toys and diet options. I have been blown away about how helpful and caring Barkers Anonymous is about giving training advice and educating us on different important topics surrounding healthy and positive options for our sweet boy. It’s also so helpful having a spot that has so many options with all kinds of fun toys and accessories. We brought Luca in several times and he loves visiting. We have started training Luca with clicker training with help from Comora, the head trainer. She is the best and the passion she has for animals. Barkers Anonymous is a special place for people who love animals and want to support positive reinforcement training.

Comora Tolliver saved us. Our beloved 8 year rescue was becoming aggressive towards other dogs and even the dogs he grew up with. We didn't understand what was going on. We were heartbroken. We tried a few trainers who suggested being dominant with him. We were not those kind of people who could carry that out. We were so upset with the disruption in our home and lives. Then a friend told me about Comora, and we called her right away. Our dog took to her right away and so did we. She started working with us, and she explained he had begun resource guarding us. We had no idea what this even was. It took understanding and lots of counter-conditioning. Comora showed us how to turn the situation around with love and kindness. In time, with her help, he began to feel secure again and we had peace in our household.
We cant begin to thank her enough. It was a heartbreaking situation with a dog we were very bonded to. And thankfully she has continued to guide us throughout the years. And she's amazing with the new puppies we have gotten over the last few years. The puppies that started with Comora are well adjusted and happy dogs! Thank you Comora Tolliver! We love you!

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Comora for 5 years and in that time have gotten to know her very well. Comora's passion and affinity for dogs is undeniable, there isn't a behavioral or training challenge that she doesn't meet head on and conquer. Even if you are at the end of your rope and think you have tried everything, she is constantly pushing the boundaries to come up with creative and resourceful techniques to help any dog and owner meet their training goals. Not only is she a phenomenal trainer but her passion for animals is so apparent, she truly cares about every dog she works with and genuinely cares about their well being. Working with Comora has brought so much joy to my dogs and I, I don't know where we'd be without her guidance.

Comora is a positively masterful dog trainer! We were fortunate to find her shortly after adopting to rescues last year—an adorable little fellow with tremendous separation anxiety and a mischievous new puppy with lots to learn. I was astonished by all that our dogs were able to do after just one session with her! From the “clicker” to crate training…housebreaking to house-saving (our puppy LOVED to chew stuff), Comora was able to quickly teach us (and them) all we needed to know to make life at home with our furry new family members much easier, happier & more fun. Her passion, dedication and positive training methods can’t be matched! I highly recommend her without hesitation.

I have worked with many dog trainers in the past 25+ years and Comora is by far the best. She not only understands dogs, but she understands their people. She is very creative in coming up with unique and inventive solutions to issues and challenges. Nothing cookie cutter about her approach. Comora is also very giving of her time and knowledge. Even though she is now in now in North Carolina I will continue to do consults.

Comora is an animal guru. Our little terrier Toby was a complete nuisance on the leash and would only listen to my commands when he felt like it. Within only weeks of training he was walking relaxed by my side and listening to my commands tenfold. He's become much more interested when I talk to him and listens so well! He's grown up so well through the training Comora offered. The best things about Comora's training is that it is based in positive reinforcement - rewarding the dog for good behavior instead of just scolding him for doing the wrong thing - which I think is something so many of us dog owners are not trained to practice with our animals. Which leads to another thing - Comora is excellent at training the owners! When you leave training you must continue the practice at home and the results are incredible. Toby went from not knowing any commands except 'sit' (and he was bad at that) to now making eye contact on command. Amazing! Thanks Comora!
