About Barker Canine Academy

We all have busy schedules, that is why Barker Canine Academy provides personalized private dog training classes.

Are you interested in getting your dog certified as an AKC Canine Good Citizen? I am a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator! I will help guide you through each part of the test and when you are ready I will perform the test and submit the results to the AKC. If your dog has passed the test you will receive a certificate in the mail from the American Kennel Club. 

Do you have a dog that does not qualify for group training classes? Does your dog suffer from anxiety or aggression? I can help with that too!

I will come to you! I provide personalized training sessions that are designed around your goals while accounting for your pet's individualized needs. I am like your dog's life coach! 

Serving Midtown, Montrose, Jersey Village, and Cypress areas in Houston, Texas!

All training classes are by appointment only. You can contact me by text, call or email to set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
