My husband is training our German Shepard puppy with Bob. We didn't have the funds to take both dogs to Bob, but i have over 40 years training Samoyeds. We will work at home.Mar 15, 2016Verified
Bob has helped with my dogs for over 10 years. He has trained them (all), watched and boarded them, and just overall taken care of them for this entire time. His experience is unrivaled and there is no one I trust more with my babies!Aug 10, 2014
I have been training with Bob for the past 5 years, doing general obedience and protection work with my 2 German Shepherds. Bob's classes are organized, challenging and stimulating for both handler and dogs. His teachings are practical and are used in everyday situations. He is very capable in dealing with a wide range of behavioural issues as well as all aspects of general training. When obedience training is done off lead it is done in very close proximity of other dogs and incorporates a combination of agility/obstacles. We are also taught how to handle the following situations: How to control your dog when being approached by another dog or a group of dog(s), encountering cyclist and joggers etc. (objects and people in motion) How to control your dog in a conflict situation with another dog Bob is quick to assess and take control to avoid problematic situations even before it happens and when something does happen he very quickly bring it under control, calmly. Bob enthusiasm and energetic manner truly reflect his passion for helping people to improve their control over their dogs. His classes are fun and informative, and I can wholeheartedly recommend his classes to anyone.Aug 16, 2014
