I have to say that had to be the best experience Charlie has ever had staying over with anyone.

Once he got his groove going, the little guy had so much fun, walking with Barb and her dogs through fields, trails and forests. Just beautiful to watch it unfold on the daily videos Barb sent us along with numerous photos. This is Charlie’s new go to destination, for sure.

Thank you Barb for all ...

Barb is obviously passionate about helping all dogs (and owners) be successful. She provided regular updates during Scout's stay and was very generous in taking time to bring me up to speed on his behaviour and training techniques when I picked him up.

Behavioral Boarding Solutions

Nip/bite history, reactive, anxious/nervous, high energy, lack of social skills or other challenges?

Hi, I’m a certified, knowledgeable, long-time dog professional (specializing in anxiety, fear, aggression) providing therapeutic boarding services in my home.

Besides a thriving behavior consultation business, I’ve successfully fostered & rehomed many difficult ‘hopeless’ cases for AHS (Bellingham) over the years so I’m quite experienced introducing, integrating & rehabilitating dogs with a variety of significant behavior challenges ...

What Barb would like to know about your dog

I welcome but don't require a prior visit so do appreciate full disclose of nip/bite history, resource guarding etc. so I can be prepared to turn potential safety issues into teaching moments for your dog

Our furniture is by invite, including for our own dogs; our senior cat is kept separate when guest dogs are here so they are not required to be cat friendly.
