Brandi Barker, MFA, CPDT-KA
With the last name “Barker,” Brandi was destined to work with dogs! A lifelong animal lover—she formally began training dogs in 2001 and trained more than 3,000 dogs in Chicago before moving back to Columbus to be closer to her family.
Brandi has a Master’s degree from DePaul University, specializing in Developing Behavior Management Practices to Enhance Understanding in Human/Animal Relationships. She’s a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Association of Pet Dog Trainers member, and Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
Brandi uses positive, proven, scientifically-sound training techniques with a real-world approach.
If you want to enjoy your dog or puppy more and learn from an experienced trainer who cares about your needs and goals—register today for a group class!
For puppies 7 to 16 weeks at the start of class.
Is your cute puppy driving you crazy with his biting and whining when crated? Join Brandi for six weeks of socialization and manners! You’ll learn tons of tips, so your pup loves his crate, bites his chew toys (and only his chew toys), walks on a leash, comes when called, responds to his name, “sit,” “down,” “wait,” and more.
Classes are small, so you get the personalized attention you deserve and includes off-leash play.
*Class policy: If you miss a class, plan to practice your homework on your own before the next session and arrive 5 minutes early the following week. No make-up classes or refunds.
Six weeks for $150
For puppies and dogs 16 ½ weeks and older at the start of class.
Want to start good habits with your new rescue dog or ready to reign in your resident pup’s less-than-perfect behaviors?
In six weeks, you’ll cover all the basics, so you enjoy a well-behaved dog: “sit,” “down,” “touch,” “come,” “leave it,” “drop,” “wait,” “stay,” leash walking, polite greetings, and much more!
Brandi keeps classes small and customizes every session based on the group’s needs. She LOVES reactive dogs (pups who bark at other dogs and people), but due to the size of the space, everyone will miss vital information if you register. Please contact Brandi to schedule private training if your loveable pup likes to bark and lunge at others.
