    Knows everything there is to know about Cairn Terriers. Spent hours working with our new puppy teaching us what we needed to know to get the most out of our new dog. Great working with her.

    Barbara was very professional and yet very friendly. She taylored her training and tips specifically for our dog's breed. She was very knowledgeable, showed us exactly how to work with our puppy and made sure we were doing the techniques properly. We have seen a huge difference already, although we plan to do more training sessions to work on more skills and address any new questions. We are so glad we found Barbara and can't recommend her highly enough!

    Barb has provided services for my Avon Terriers not only with grooming and training but behavior assistance as well. Barb approaches every day with a positive, fun outlook, giving 150%. She is your true pet whisperer!

    You have a wonderful new puppy, see you this summer!

    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!

    I'm in NC and Barbara is in Ohio, so her aide has been long distance. Barb has been extremely helpful with several obedience heeling issues we've encountered. Sophie is my first dog to train and first Cairn terrier. Barb experience has been amazing for both of us! 10 paw salute to Barb!!
    Barbara L. Mar 27, 2015

    Thank you! Sophie has been doing marvelous! make room for all her AKC new Titles ribbons, trophies and photographs posing with her achievements! Yay! Team SOPHIE!

    Bar was excellent with my puppy and gave me some great tips. I'm excited to start working with him. I'm looking forward to future training sessions with her. She is reasonably priced for someone who doesn't want to shell out big bucks for help training their dog.

    Thank you Meea!

    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

    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..

    I met Barb about 4 years ago while at a 4-H meeting with my daughter. We were introduced to a whole new level of dog training that we didn't know was possible. All the struggles my daughter was having with her dog didn't seem to be a challenge to Barb. Barb always had an unique way to approach each situation. Not only does she have a fresh new way of looking at training she is cheerful and encouraging even though her students don't always follow through on their end. Barb geniuinly cares about her students and their dogs. You willl have a hard time finding any one as knowledgable and hardworking as Barb.

    Barb has been very kind with our puppy and patient with us. We have her board Harley when we are out of town and she grooms him while we are gone. Barb has shown us that dogs will respond when shown that you are the one in charge. We thank her for helping us have a well mannered house pet.

    We got our beagle "Ray" from the shelter. We were having behavior issues and he was afraid of the crate. Barb came to our house and taught us how to train him and make his crate a safe place. We also took her "puppy" class. He now will sit, wait, lay down and kennel up. He is wonderful out in public and loves to go to my son's baseball games. Thank you Barb for helping us so we can enjoy our dog.

    Dog Logic is the logical choice in dog training; from puppies to older adult dogs. The training of my Dachshund was amazing and he can really be a part of the family with his good manners that he learned. Check it out and I recommend a private session to have your animal assessed to his/her own abilities. Well worth my money!
