People and Dogs Love K9 Swim & Trim

  • Barb- You know what a happy boy Brady is!  And how pain free, thanks to you - love the holistic healing after having 2 labs with ACL tears. SO much better without surgery.  I will get out there again soon with him- we miss you!

    Cheryl McCarthy, Pup Parent
  • Dear Barb, The family of King thanks you so much for all you have done for our dog.  I know you were the one that fixed his leg.  You have no idea how grateful we are to you. You do great work with the dogs.  King loves you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  • Dr. Barb is great and very sweet with her furry patients. I think swimming is a great weight loss tool for pets!

  • Gracie loved her first visit to K9 Swim & Trim, and so did we! She was a bit nervous at first, but Barbara was so gentle and patient with her in the water that she improved by the time her lesson was over! We will be taking her back for more lessons because we want her to stay active, be healthy and have fun. Thank you Barbara for being so great with our girl, we'll see you again soon!

    Erika Furtado, Gracie's Mom
  • Dr. Barb is very patient and caring with her patients (even though water may not be their thing). I would highly recommend her.

  • Gumbo had a great time swimming today! It was an excellent workout for her. I wish we lived closer so we could bring her in more often.

  • Mr. Big truly enjoys swim class.  It is very beneficial to his health, happiness, and overall wellbeing.  His is not afraid of water, has maintained a good, positive weight, and is social due to swim class.  His 2016 goal is 1 class every month for 12 months!

  • Sophie has been swimming with Barb once a week for a year.  I was recommended to K9 Swim & Trim from my vet, Dr. Dowd.  Sophie is a high energy Lab/Shepherd mix who has developed arthritis in her knees to the point she was having trouble walking up/down our deck stairs in the backyard.  She also had decreased activity endurance and couldn't hike with me our usual 4 mile hike on weekends.  The swim with Barb improved Sophie's hiking endurance to the point she completed her 4 mile hike with my husband & myself last Oct 2015.  She no longer has trouble with our deck steps.  The weekly swim time has improved her hip muscle strength and hip flexibility tremendously. Thank you Barb for helping our dog become a part of our lives again.

  • When we decided to adopt a black lab tripod from CILRA lab rescue, I researched to see if they had special needs and found that swimming was great for their core and leg muscle strength as well as keeping their weight down. Although he was hesitant at first, Dr. Barb's gentle and kind manner instilled his trust in her; and he swam like a black seal.  She challenged his competitive spirit and raced him for his beloved tennis balls.  Her own enjoyment in swimming with Bopper shows on her face and in her voice. In addition, her experience as a veterinarian and CCRT (to be) helped develop his core and muscle strength and maintain his weight.  His rehab and acupuncture vets marvel at his muscle development and flexibility. Bopper is always excited to see Dr. Barb, and he runs to her and rewards her with slur pies (kisses).

  • Because of you I'm the dog I was supposed to be.  I can do things now that 6 months ago seemed impossible.  Thank you for your help.

  • My dog loves coming- it keeps her fit and you helped her recover!!

    Lee Cera, Bella's Pup Parent
  • I can't say enough as to how much better Mojo's hips are doing. His therapy swims have been so beneficial to his quality of life. Highly recommend K9 Swim & Trim!

    Michele Allen, Mojo's Mom
  • Swimming has changed Shiloh's life by giving him the needed exercise without the stress as I continue to search for someone to pinpoint his leg issue.  For a dog who had never been in water he adapted well mainly due to your kindness and his sense of security with you.  He trusts you to help him as do I.  I'm glad I found you as our experience has been a positive one.  P.S. Thank you for helping me feel better.

    Shiloh and Dawn Rumoro
  • Bocephus & I like Barb.  She is very good w/my Bocephus.  Professional but caring.  Thanks for all your help with Bocephus' ACL rehab.
