Meet Barbara

Barbara Currier got involved with agility shortly after adopting her Chihuahua in 1997.  In 2004, Barbara and her husband Michael were relocated to Virginia and shortly after she started teaching agility in Richmond, VA. It was there that Barbara was introduced to Susan Garrett and her  foundation-based training that is centered around impulse control and relationship building with your dog.  She has trained with some of the best handlers in the world including Tracy Sklenar, Kayl McCann, Jaakko Suoknuuti, Janita Leinonen, Loretta Mueller, Mary Ellen Barry and Jen Pinder just to name a few and has implemented what she has learned from them into her training program.

Before relocating to GA, while living in VA, Barbara also started her own in-home training and behavioral rehabilitation business.  She was the trainer for Richmond Boxer Rescue and also assisted Southeastern Virginia Golden Retriever Rescue in assessing some of their dogs.  Barbara has worked extensively with many rescue organizations including Chihuahua and Rottweiler rescue while living in NH.  

Barbara was one of the head dog trainers for the F.I.D.O. Program run at Georgia Tech, which creates wearable computing for military, SAR and service dogs.

Barbara has also worked as an animal wrangler for Marvel’s Ant-Man, 90 Minutes in Heaven, the TV series Satisfaction and various commercials and print ads.

She has been teaching since 2004.  She has successfully competed over 20 different breeds of dogs since she started competing in agility.  She is a multpile National finalist and former world team member.  Barbara continues to teach all over the country.

 In 2022, Barbara became a certified performance coach with Mental Managment Systems in Flower Mound, TX.  This system was created by former gold and silver medal Olympian, Lanny Bassham.  She started working with Mental Management Systems in 2015 and has used this method to help her compete in other dog sports like, Nose Work, Barn Hunt, Dock Diving, Fast Cat and Canicross, and Agility.

Barbara resides in Georgia and shares her home with her very supportive husband, Mike, Miso (Miniature Poodle), Eggo (Wocker), Fish (French Spaniel) and bearded dragon, Saphira.
