About Me

Hi! My name is Tia Ybarra, and I’m the Owner and Head Trainer at Paw & Order Harmony. I grew up in Butler County with my head constantly buried in books about dogs. Before my father passed, he introduced me to a dog sport called “Dock Diving.” I didn’t have my own dog, so my aunt would drive her Mountain Cur mix dog all the way from Ithaca, NY, so that I could compete with him as a junior handler. This was the beginning of the end, so to speak, and ignited my passion for working with dogs.

In 2016, I began my career as a freelance dog trainer, focusing on service dogs. I trained my own medical alert and response service dog, Fizz, but quickly realized my passion lies in obedience and behavioral modification for pet dogs, especially the difficult cases. I discovered Paw & Order and haven’t looked back.

I truly believe that happiness is a well-trained dog, and every day I work towards bringing this happiness to other homes so that they may enjoy their pets to the fullest! To this day, I continue to seek further education in dog training methods because in this line of work, the learning never ends!


Not only am I a Paw & Order certified trainer, but I am also certified through the AKC (American Kennel Club). I am an approved evaluator for Canine Good Citizen and therapy dogs through Therapy Dogs United. I completed a masterclass in aggression and have worked with many dog aggression cases, so I am qualified to address these difficult issues. I am a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). I’ve attended numerous dog training seminars, including, “Training Between The Ears” and “Advanced Canine Fitness,” and I am always looking for new opportunities to learn!

Services Offered

Paw & Order Harmony offers the following dog training programs. Contact us today for more information or to get scheduled.

Most issues start at your house, so it’s best to deal with them in their own environment. As training progresses, we may move the lessons to public areas in order to work with distractions. Our adult program is commitment-based, which means we work with you until all of your goals are met, no matter how lengthy the training is. Learn more >> 

If you are looking for a fast way to train your dog(s) and find you do not have the time or skills to commit, our Stay & Train Program may be a good option for you. It’s an intense lifestyle training program where we welcome your dog(s) into one of our experienced trainers’ home for 3 to 4 weeks (or more depending on the situation) and work through all of the issues you are having. Your dog(s) will not only receive hours of one-on-one training every day, but they’ll also benefit from socializing with our dogs and other dogs. Learn more >> 

Similar to our Board & Train program, but not as long or as intense. This is perfect if you are traveling and would like your dog’s obedience tightened up. 

The virtual dog training package works similar to our in-home package. It is commitment-based, which means we work with you until all of your goals are met, no matter how lengthy the training is. The difference is that instead of coming to you and working in the dog’s environment, we will set up an online virtual meeting, observe your dog’s behavior, and walk you through instruction step-by-step. Learn more >>

This is not your typical pet store obedience class! Learn more >>

We offer prep classes and evaluations for the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program. Learn more >>

We offer prep classes and evaluations for the AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy exam. Learn more >> 

We offer a group class to train and certify your dog as a Therapy Dog. Learn more >>

We hold various adventures throughout the year, usually once or twice every weekend. They typically include 10 to 20 dogs (though we’ve had as many as 30), and usually take place at local parks or trails.
