BRADFORD, Pa. – Denise Barber, a dog trainer from Portville, N.Y., will speak about guide dog training on Oct. 11 at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The talk, which is being sponsored by the Office of Disability Resources in honor of Disability Awareness Month, will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel. It is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

Barber will bring a dog in training to the program. She has been raising, training and socializing dogs for Guiding Eyes for the Blind since 1994 and has raised and helped train nine dogs.

The organization, located in Patterson, N.Y., provides specially bred and trained guide dogs to men and women who are blind and visually impaired, allowing them to lead fuller lives and achieve their life goals.

All services are offered free to those who are blind or visually impaired. Guiding Eyes is dependent upon contributions to fulfill its mission. It is an accredited member of the International Guide Dog Federation, the organization establishing worldwide standards for the breeding and training of guide dogs.

In addition to her work with the Guiding Eyes, Barber is the owner of K-9 Connections LLC, a dog training and sitting service. She has continued her training to better understand dog behavior, brain science and methods for communicating a human’s expectations to a dog and has attended dog behavior seminars with animal behaviorists from around the world.

Additionally, Barber is learned in the Americans with Disabilities Act as it applies to the use of service, therapy and comfort dogs.
