Barb knows dog training but her people skills are worse than awful. She tries to intimidate and humiliate. Makes the whole experience stressful instead if fun. Remember your worst teacher in grade school? She is it.

I am sorry I paid for a puppy kindergarten class from. As the previous comments stated, I feel exactly the same way. She belittles you in front of entire class. She only gives personal comments to certain people. I was not on that list, so

Barb Levenson is a very nasty, condescending and mean lady! I have trained numerous dogs in different categories over the years and have never felt so belittled in my life. She looks at anyone needing help in class with complete disdain

Nasty lady. It appears she doesnt even like people or dogs. I'm not sure why she is in this business. Nothing POSITIVE what so ever. She tells you to go against your veterinarians advice. She told someone to stop feeding a prescription

This woman is nasty, a theif and a liar. If you have a problem with your dog, she will sell you a product to fix it. She constantly insists that people under feed their dogs. She is rude to the students. One person dropped out of our class and ended up giving up their dog cause she was of no help. She is inconsistent with schedules. About the only way you may benefit is if you have a border collie and want to do agility. Any other breed she attempts to treat the same way.

If you have to miss a class there is an additional fee for a makeup. She is all about the money and nothing else.

While the training methods presented in class may be effective she is not teaching anything you cannot learn from another qualified trainer, in a more positive and pleasant fashion. She is discourteous, unpleasant and often unprofessional toward the dog owners.

I agree with the other two reviews. Very good training and advice on building good relationships, but if you are looking for a trainer that cares about you or the dogs this is not the warm and fuzzy place to be. Owner of facility tends to be very unpleasant towards the owners.

I have put 2 different dogs through Barb Levenson Dog Training Center within a 8 year span. I have had a great experience and outcome in both situations. The classes are the perfect size, in which you get individualized attention within a group setting. Barb tailors each class, within the lesson plan, to that particular classes needs and questions. She has ample time and patience for each handler/dog. She really assisted me and my dogs to gain the best relationship possible. I have gotten and still get many compliments about my previous and current dogs discipline and behavior. I owe all this to Barb and her positive reward based training.
Her vast knowledge and love of dogs is an example to follow for all trainers. It

Barb Levenson Dog Training Center. I have taken my dog to this training center starting as a puppy and have learned so much. The classes are geared to set you and your dog up for success and to build an awesome relationship. Barb has been working with dogs and their owners for a few decades and is a natural at reading a dog. She has continued her own studies and is on the cutting edge in terms of dog behavior and training. The courses offered can take you from puppyhood all the way up through basic classes, canine good citizenship, fun agility, rally-o and formal obedience. I say 4 paws up!!!!

I have trained dogs with Barb Levenson. off and on for sixteen years. I have trained for competition obedience, agility,scent work, and therapy work. Barb's methods helped me develop the best relationship I've ever had with a dog.
She is a consumate problem solver. All you need to supply is an open mind and a willingness to find time to work with your dog. She is always up to date with current research to apply to your training toolbag. She also brings in great seminars that allow you access to other points of view. I have tried other training centers since I currently live over an hour away from Barb, and have found its just worth the extra travel time to remain with her. Her puppy classes are head and shoulders above any I have seen. She is the real deal.

Our Dog Loves Barb! My boyfriend Dave and I have been taking our dog Jack here for years. He has taken quite a few of Barb's classes and now we do monthly private agility lessons with Barb. Our dog loves the environment there so much, he gets excited as soon as he realizes where we are going in the car. She ALWAYS has the dogs best interest in mind.

"" i admit that i was skeptical about only using barb's 'positive reinforcement' method for training my GSD puppy as i come from the 'old school' way of dog training... after only 3 weeks i am VERY pleased with the progress me and leo have made! i also have begun to use the methods with my older pit bull.
the best thing about barb's methods vs corrections is that the dogs and myself have a lot more fun when training! i recommend this facility to anyone wanting to form a life long and 'positive' bond with their dogs!""

Barb's school is a great place to train your dog of any age. Her positive reinforcement methods have been proven time and again. She teaches you how to train your dog and if you follow the program and practice daily, the sky is the limit.

Barb, 12 years ago you made a promise to me. You told me that if I worked your program that I would have the best dog I have ever owned. Mollie is almost 13 years old now and you have delivered on your promise. She is the best competitive dog and the best companion dog I have ever owned. I would recommend your services to every new dog owner or anyone who is interested in competing with their dog. Even in her geriatric years, I can say ""Mollie, do you want to go to work?"" and she is ready to go.
