“Both BabelBarkÂ andÂ Fear FreeÂ share a commonÂ mission of connectingÂ pet parents, veterinary professionals,Â andÂ the pet professional communityÂ through every step ofÂ aÂ pet’sÂ health and wellness needsÂ to ensure pets have a Fear Free experience,”Â saidÂ Roy Stein,Â BabelBarkÂ founder and CEO. “This partnershipÂ willÂ provide a new level ofÂ support to veterinarians through technology, allowing them to deliver individualized information and consultations to each pet parent.”
Fear Free was founded by Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian” and resident veterinarian onÂ The Dr. Oz Show, as well as a 17-year veteran of Good Morning America. He is also on the Board of Directors of the American Humane Association. The intensive certification course was developed with input from a 160-member advisory group, including board-certified veterinary behaviorists, well-known veterinary practice management experts, and other leaders in the field. Since launching in 2016, more than 37,000 professionals have enrolled in the Fear Free course, and over 22,000 have been certified.
“Fear Free and BabelBarkÂ believe in creatingÂ a strong bond with the entire pet community, ensuring that each pet visit is a positive and enjoyable experience,” saidÂ Becker.Â “WhenÂ the professional team and pet parent areÂ on the same page regardingÂ a pet’s health,Â theÂ petÂ wins. There’sÂ less anxiety duringÂ the pet’sÂ time at the veterinarian’s office,Â whichÂ gives the clientÂ peace of mindÂ andÂ ultimatelyÂ paves the way for betterÂ medicine, better communications, and better care.”
Launched in 2016, BabelBark connects thousands of pets with pet care businesses (including veterinary practices, trainers, shelters, groomers, walkers, pet sitters, boarding kennels, and more within the pet care community) through a digital platform with a mobile application.
The suite of BabelBark products includes:
“ThisÂ partnershipÂ is a major milestone forÂ both companies,”Â Stein said.Â “Ultimately it means weÂ can helpÂ moreÂ pet parents, pet professionals,Â and veterinariansÂ create betterÂ health outcomesÂ for pets.”Â Â

About Fear Free
Developed by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear Free initiative aims to “take the ‘pet’ out of ‘petrified.'” By promoting aÂ considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments, pets begin to experience a trip to the vet as a fun and safe place to be. Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, providing unparalleled education on emotional well-being, enrichment and the reduction of fear, anxiety and stress in pets, not only at the veterinarian, but in the home as well.Â The end result is a calmer pet and better veterinary care and fewer behavioral problems at home.
