Hi I'm a Service Dog, my name is Barbie

Hi I'm Barbie,

I am a service Dog, follow me and my blog. I help my human, she has troubles
with emotions, I am emotional support. My other human friend is my trainer

things like sitting respectfully and listening. He taught me how to sit and give my paw in greetings.
I like to meet people. I especially like to go to Senior Homes, hospitals and public places. Follow my blog, I will travel with my trainer to many places, meet humans, as I make them smile and bring a cheery gift in the form of my gentle
affection. I will post photo's and video's

Barbie Visits "Mother Cluckers" in Palatine

Barbie Visits Mother Cluckers in Palatine, Illinois

There are no TVs, just great music. All our food is fresh and made with family recipes.

Barbie noticed they are BYOB, do bring your favorite wine or 6 packs and we will put it on ice for you.

Sit back, relax, and let us do the cooking.

Barbie wants to tell you a short story first to explain why I love Mother Cluckers.  Of course the name is funny, so you really hope the food is good.  Excellent is all I can say.  To start, the chicken tasted like fried chicken but you could tell it was so much lighter with almost no grease.  It had a very crispy texture you typically find on fried chicken.  Very crispy and crunchy.  The chicken dinner comes with either biscuits or hush puppies....Barbie got the hush puppies and they were really good. Go try it tell them Barbie sent you!

Who grooms Barbie?

“My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog thinks I am.”

This starts with Grooming Barbie...

People love to touch Barbie's top knot, or Pom. The people at Jimminy Clippers have been doing a great job for her. Give them a call, you won't be disappointed.
We love the bows and ribbons they put in her ears...

The Secret to a Happy Dog

The Secret to Happiness

The meaning of life is to live it. The secret to a happy dog is to help her live a fulfilled life. That means she actively participates in it. She plays, goes places, and does things. Basically, the secret to a happy dog is not much different at all from the secret to a happy person.

Do dogs have a sense of self-esteem? If you doubt it, just watch a dog who has accomplished a complicated task. See how she holds her head high and struts! Dogs need to have confidence in themselves and their ability to master tasks. Training a dog builds her self-esteem. It makes them feel good to master the perfect Sit and earn your appreciation! Learning tricks is fun for dogs. There are also all sorts of canine sports available that dogs enjoy. Agility, fly ball, ultimate frisbee, and lure coursing are just some of the examples. A dog with a hobby is a fulfilled dog.

All work and no fun is not good

They’re Excited to See You Happy dogs greet you at the door, get excited when you wake up, and keep an eye on you when they're playing in the dog park…unless their best canine friends are demanding all their attention, of course.
