Dog training type
Robert has been working with my 9 month Golden Retriever for the last few months. We have weekly training sessions. I am extremely happy with his method of training and the genuine affection he shows for my dog. My dog really enjoys his training and has come so far since Robert started working with him. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a dog trainer to contact Robert, you and your dog will be happy you did!Jan 7, 2019Verified
Robert Weather wax is a highly effective trainer who is OUTSTANDING with dogs and with people. You will be glad you chose him!Nov 6, 2017Verified
My two Golden Retrievers (the "boys) were not very social with other dogs. Robert is extremely knowledgeable and uses a rewards-based approach to training the boys. Training with Robert has given me the ability to handle distractions and be safe around other dogs while walking with them. Robert treats my dogs with great love and is amazing about making sure that I understand the proper techniques to train with my dogs outside of our lessons. I highly recommend Robert to help with any training issue(s) or behavior modification problem.Jan 10, 2018
Bob arrived on-time & quickly established a good bond with our puppy. He worked with her very patiently & was excellent at informing us about what he was doing & why he was doing it that way! Bob is excellent with both the puppy & the humans so we can all work together! He broke her tendency to jump up on people when greeting them right away! He uses gentle loving ways with the puppy & was never harsh with her. We give Bob the highest ratings & recommend him for anyone who wants their dog to be better trained.Dec 25, 2016Verified
It was clear when we met Robert he was a no nonsense guy, and yet showed our dogs respect, kindness and attentiveness. I'm a firm believer that its usually "pets that have people problems", Robert zero'd in on what was going on with our puppy (Dante) and our older dog, Coco. While we knew Dante needed direction, starting with the fact that he is a 5 month old puppy, Robert identified that Coco also played a part in the "family dynamics." Robert was consistent, patient, and very calm; within two sessions, Robert gave us the tools, tips and direction (including identifying the need for training collars, or working collars as Robert called them) to effectively change a few behaviors to relieve Dante's anxiety as a puppy, and help Coco to change his behavior, which was also contributing to Dante's anxiety. Robert provided opportunities for Dante to increase his confidence, and more importantly, showed us how to create opportunities to grow Dante's confidence. Robert also identified some of our behaviors that we could change, which when realized, had an immediate affect on Dante's behavior. It was a pleasure working with Robert and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank you, Robert!Sep 17, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's not complicated; I just don't want people thinking it can all be fixed in one lesson. See above for my pricing
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have forgotten more than most trainers will ever learn. I am intuitive in my training so I learn from every dog I work with...
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It was assumed that I would be a dog trainer before I even thought about what career path I would take.
