Out and About With NEBTR

Kim Barnett

Kim Barnett stresses promoting good human – canine relationships based on respect, trust and kindness.

She writes, “My philosophy is a simple one: to help humans communicate better with their dogs and have more fulfilling relationships. A soon as we begin to communicate clearly, our dogs respond accordingly. Most of us already have the skills, we just don’t know it. In considering this, I look for the similarities more than the differences in our two species and use them to mutual advantage. It’s no coincidence that the dog has been our closest companion for thousands of years; on an instinctual level we have many parallels, both being a social species.”

Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue (NEBTR) is comprised of volunteers based in NY, NJ, PA, CT and DE and serves Boston Terriers in need within reach of our helping hands. Most dogs in foster care for placement are adolescent to adult dogs in need of re-homing in life for a multitude of reasons and will need caring hands to guide them as they transition into new homes. All of our rescue dogs are fostered and evaluated for a 2 week minimum to allow us to assess their personality and provide them with basic foundation skills - House/Crate training, basic manners - to ease their transition into new homes. It is our belief such work in foster care better prepares dogs for success and helps forms lasting bonds.
