Barbara began her career in canine training and behavior in 2003. In 2007, she tested and obtained her CPDT-KA (Certified Pet Dog Trainer). In 2011, she became one of the first trainers in the country to earn the CPDT-KSA designation. (Knowledge and Skills Assessed)
Barbara takes her education quite seriously by attending many conferences and seminars so that she is able to learn the newest information for her clients. She works closely with several veterinarians to help her clients in any possible way.
Barbara is a positive reinforcement trainer, but she refers to herself as a “relationship-based trainer”. Her training goal for her clients is to develop a relationship with their canine companion based on mutual respect and trust, not fear and intimidation. Her motto is “Catch Your Dog Doing Something Good”, which means…praise the positive behaviors that your dogs put forth. Start paying attention to the good things your dog does…and you will see how quickly your relationship will change.
