Synopsis For Love At First Bark Airing On The Hallmark Channel
Julia Galvins is a beautiful and proficient interior designer in Portland. With a sharp eye for what is gorgeous and alluring, she takes on her latest challenge of designing the nursery of a very prominent client named Cassie. Cassie is pregnant and looking for a beautiful and peaceful space for her newborn. For Julia, this doesn’t seem like much of a challenge at all since this is her daily business.
However, when she learns that she will not only have to build a nursery for Cassie, but a “puppery” for Cassie’s beloved pup, Ginger, the pressure is on to pull it all off in time for an upcoming fundraiser. This high-end client expects nothing but the best from Julia. But, Julia has never designed a “puppery.”
She gets a lucky break after she adopts a dog and meets Owen, a handsome and renowned dog trainer who gives her some wonderful K9 tips. With such a skillful trainer on her hands, Julia can’t wait to hear Owen’s contributory ideas about how to pull Ginger the dog’s “puppery,” together. After all, Owen is a dog master, the professional consultant of choice around those parts. His compassion for dogs, coupled with his unique expertise, tie right into Julia’s latest project.
Through their work, Julia and Owen begin to fall for each other. But before their love can blossom, Julia learns about his ex-girlfriend, Bridget. Upon seeing him talking to Bridget, Julia’s first thought is to pull back and retreat. However, she decides to use her lesson in love to turn dog play into love play.
