Rigby LOVES “school”. We did a lot of research before deciding on Brookside Pet. We continue to be impressed what our three month puppy can do! Barb is extremely knowledgeable and truly passionate about what she does. This place is more than “tricks”. We are really learning how dogs think and learn. And your dog is learning the proper way to greet people and other dogs. As well as helping them to not be fearful of things that might cause them to become aggressive later in life. We are planning on getting him into therapy and possibly ability. This was for sure the right step!
We are over the moon and excited to start Kindergarten next week!

Rigby & Lauren

She has taught me to read my dog well. “Bea” and I are so much better together for it! Very grateful:)

Beatrix & Anne B. , Private training students

Barbara is an exceptional trainer!! The hands on with the training and the patience and explanation for everything helps you as a dog owner understand why and what you are doing! I could not be more pleased!!!

Zadie & Barb C. , Puppy Start Right class

Barb has been so helpful in the training with my dog. She is an excellent trainer and gives excellent suggestions to do once she leaves your house.
