Amazing class with Barbara today! She is amazing with the dogs! I have never learned so much in a short period of time. Highly recommend The Thinking K9 for your dog training needs. Her place of business is so clean and she has so much to offer the dogs. Do not hesitate to take your dog here for training, you will not be disappointed!!!

Barbara also does boarding and I was fortunate to be able to leave Sweetness with her for a couple of days. She sent pictures often and kept in touch while I was away. Sweetness looked so happy! I was afraid she wouldn’t want to come home with me!
And, Barbara has the most well trained boxer, Batman, that I have ever seen! She is amazing with dogs!!
Highly recommend training or boarding with Barbara!!

Barbara took Teddy into her home and lovingly taught him some manners. Over the course of these first two years of his life, Barbara has continued to train as needed, which included training us how to communicate effectively with Teddy to acheive the desired behavior.
On top of the training, the peace of mind that we have dropping off Teddy to stay with Barbara and her family while our family is able to go on vacation and seeing how much he obviously loves her, is priceless.

My husband never wanted to leave Agness until we found Barbara. After leaving Agness with Barbara a couple times, he suggested we leave her while we took a week’s vacation. Every time Agness stays in Barbara’s home even for a day, we get several pictures & videos, she goes on walks, she plays with Barbara’s dogs, family & visitors — all of which we appreciate. The only doubt that ever entered my mind was ‘Is Agness going to want to come home after all the fun she’s having at Barbara’s?’ Anyone who has had to leave their pet knows that definitely puts your mind at ease.

I also recommend Canine Camp to anyone that wants to keep working with their Dog after CGC classes. We can't wait for more training experiences!

We then inquired about other services she offered and found her to be very flexible and her prices to be very reasonable. We have used Barb for doggie daycare and for in home services such as feeding, potty time and playtime with our 3 dogs while we are away. She fills out a daily bio of each dog for each day you are gone.
The services she provides, I must admit, are a huge success as my 2 Frenchie’s have the hugest smiles on their faces throughout the whole day of daycare. Did I also mention that she sends us pictures, videos and text messages while we are away from our fur babies? It’s great! We get to see our dogs play and interact with others and they get to wear out some of that puppy energy as well.
Our senior dog with special needs, is not able to attend doggie daycare with his brother and sister. Barb has always made sure to give him one on one time with cuddles and playtime when she has come into our home. We highly recommend Barb and her services, she has provided us with a peace of mind when we have to be away from our fur babies!

Barbara went one step further and even brought her own dog so I could practice the techniques with Barbara present. She provided handouts and lots of positive reinforcement. She made me feel good about what I have done with my dog regarding his training so far, and that I am not a failure.

I would highly recommend Barbara as an instructor for dog training. I appreciate the positive reinforcement to train your dog(no harsh yanking - just praise and treats), the handouts after class for review at home and the equipment provided in class to build up your dog's confidence. I like Barbara's website for useful information regarding class review, recommended equipment to buy and pictures of our dogs. I look forward to training my bulldog at the next level under Barbara's instruction. Thanks Barbara!
