At the website link below, you will discover a whole new philosophy of

puppy/dog training like nothing you have ever seen before!!!

Bar None!

When you chose to raise a puppy, it is your responsibility to train your puppy. You were not born with the knowledge to train your fur baby correctly, therefore, as a responsible puppy parent you must learn how to train him. So, after doing my research as a reputable Miniature Schnauzer Breeder and trainer of over 45 plus years I recommend Dr. Ian Dunbar!!!

So why do I admire Dr. Dunbar So much? That is a great question!!!!

I will start out by saying most of us like people similar to who we are. Most of us like people with similar interest, philosophies, ideas, habits and history. With that being said, I absolutely resonant with this him.

Dr. Dunbar is a Veterinarian and Animal Behaviorist. From the beginning of his life we see his passion and love for animals and dogs which shines through like a rainbow on a rainy day. His life continues to be dedicated to the development, care and well-being of puppies/dogs and this can only be manifested by his loving, caring and educating of humans to be the best puppy parent.

Dr. Ian Dunbar epitomizes what we expect from a professional expert dog trainer. He has over 45 years of Skilled and Expert Dog Training experience, as well as, he has opened several Sirius Dog Training Facilities throughout Northern California and he continues to build them worldwide. He certainly has made a lifetime commitment to everyone and our puppies.

“We are making history”

Before meeting Barbara, I thought that I knew what it took to raise a dog.

Growing up in Australia, we had a number of dogs as pets, and while I knew they weren’t well trained, I would have said that the dogs were well behaved and good family companions and that, in itself, was enough.

Only now, since speaking with Barbara at length and taking Ian Dunbar’s course, do I realize that dogs are not hard to train and that,

by properly training your dog, you are not only helping the dog to reach its full potential, but you are also maximizing the enjoyment that you and your family will receive from the dog over its lifetime.

While taking the course is an upfront investment of time and money, mostly time, I know that it will save us significant time over the long term, and greatly add to my family’s and my new dog’s happiness.

“The Sirius at Home Puppy Training course we subscribed to through Barbara Williams is an indispensable guide for puppy parents – new and experienced. Dr. Ian Dunbar is incredibly knowledgeable and his material in this course offers insightful guidance on how to build a long-term rewarding and enriching relationship with your dog. By focusing on early socialization and conditioning, Dr. Dunbar ensures puppy parents are ready to begin training and building a relationship with their dogs the minute they take the dog home. The courses are engaging, fun, and inspiring. There is a huge range of videos ranging from basic sit /stay to more involved forms of puppy enrichment. We highly recommend this course to anyone who loves dogs.”

“I’ve lived with dogs of all shapes and sizes throughout my life and thought I would be perfectly fine raising a puppy for the first time. But I’m so glad that Barbara recommended these classes (so I didn’t have to search for great ones) and that they were a requirement! Everything the classes covered made a lot of sense to me and seemed very easy to replicate, and most of the class information wasn’t common knowledge for me or my family. After completing the classes, I feel so much more prepared as a future puppy owner!”
