I started training my dog, Rocky, with Barb when I was only 11. I am now 15, and he has improved so much in the last 4 years. Everytime I had to teach Rocky a new command for my 4-H Dog Obedience project, she would put me on the right path and would help me work out the kinks. Besides the basic tricks, like sit, stay and come, Barb has also help me teach my dog more advanced commands like: drop on recall, heel off leash, and even how to retrieve a dumbell over a jump. Barb's grooming techniques are also very impressive, and make my dogs look amazing. I can always count on her to be there for me and both my dogs no matter what the issue. I don't know where I'd be without her and her excellent dog training. Thank you so much Barb, you have went above and beyond what anyone would expect from a dog trainer..

Barb went way above and beyond what my husband and I could have expected. We had a 2 year old cairn terrier that was bred for show, not temperament. From the moment we got her, we had trouble with resource guarding. We took her to two other dog trainers and spent numerous hours and a lot of money trying to rehabilitate her. It was to the point where we were going to give her back to the breeder who would probably have left her in a kennel. Barb worked with us and then took the dog and rehabilitated her which we would never have believed could be done. Barb found her a new home where she is thriving with her new family. We are so thankful that she was there when we felt like we had no where else to turn.

my show Cairn Terrier, is from an excellent breeder who understands that breeding "for show" is not imited to conformation, and it is critical to also select a Sire and Dam with VERY nice temperaments as my Dezi is living proof that a truly good dog from a showdog background, INCLUDES

Barb's training was excellent and very easy for new dog trainers/owners. She makes every exercise fun, easy to understand (so you can practice at home, of course), relevant to every day life for you and your dog, and even has days where she will give you tips for nutrition, nail clippings, and pictures! She covered the basics: sit, down, stay, come, etc, as well as more advanced tricks, like "leave it" "watch me" and showed us how her dog learned to skateboard! I was beyond pleased with her training and services. She always kept me in the loop for potential opportunities for my dog's growth and happiness via Facebook articles and other links, texts or phone calls! Barb is great, and her services are even better! I highly recommend her!

Barb is an amazing trainer and shows so much enthusiasm for what she does! My 5 month old Westie just finished his 3rd puppy class with her and can already sit, lay down, stay, touch, etc. I am ever amazed with how quickly he has picked up new behaviors. Barb also teaches and shows us grooming techniques and I am absolutely sold on her dremel tool method; I have not had puppy scratches on me since we began and my dog stays calm and practically falls asleep while getting his nails groomed. If you have a new puppy, or even an older dog with problems, I am confident that Barb can show any willing owner the right steps to a better doggie good citizen.

How is Kipton doing? Have you been able to keep up with his nail trimming using a Dremel? I would love an updated photo of Kipton, feel free to send a new photo to my email address. Also, he is eligible to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test anytime after his 1st birthday. He would be a great Therapy Dog, and after the CGC test, I can give you the contact to take that test, and earn that credential. he is a great dog!
