Robert is an excellent trainer. My husband and I always look forward to taking our little gitl, Pearl for training. Robert has provided helpful information for us to do with Pearl at home. So glad we have someone like Robert training our puppy.Dec 21, 2016Verified

Q & A
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I took a dog training class and got hooked. I asked a master trainer if I could work with him and started training dogs in 1989. After working in the technology sector for over 38 years, I had enough! I was offered an early retirement package from HP an I took it. I wasn't ready to retire, I wanted to do something more with my life so I took a passion and turned it into a business.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Just like building a house, you need a solid foundation. Basic obedience is the most common type of dog training but I always have to train the owner more than the dog.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When contacting a dog trainer get to know the trainer's philosophy and approach to training dogs. The owner has as more responsibility of training the dog as the trainer has.
