Barbara DeGroodt

Advisory Council Member
Barbara shares her life with a 15-year-old Chihuahua mix, a little red-headed terrier, an oversized Yorkie mix and two Rottweilers.

Barbara has been involved with animal rescue and volunteering for as long as she can remember. She used to run a private Rottweiler rescue, and she has been a volunteer with POMDR since its inception, helping with dog evaluations, transportation, dog training and behavior counseling.

Barbara has a keen interest in animal behavior, and she holds certificates from multiple training seminars. Barbara has worked with trainers in India, New Zealand, Thailand, Spain and all over the United States. Barbara currently speaks at three Carrington College campuses for the vet tech behavior segment, and she has worked with the Venezuela airport drug detection dogs. Barbara was awarded Trainer of the Year at a Westminster pre-show event. With all her excellent experience, Barbara is a natural choice to join the POMDR Advisory Council!

Barbara earned a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science, and she is working on a Masters degree from University of Edinburgh.
