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
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

We rescued a 75 lb 2 yr old boxer mix (Rocky) and were having challenges trying to train him not to jump on people, pull when walking on a leash, and to listen to basic commands. We hired Robert to come to our house for 2 hours once a week and work with Rocky and us. He was amazing. After 2 visits Rocky was doing much better on a leash and was beginning to listen to commands such as stay, sit, and come. After about 4 visits we thought we had a new dog! We also like the methods Robert used in training Rocky. Reward and praise being key. Robert also spent time 'training' us and we learned why what we were doing before did not work. We would definitely recommend Robert as he truly understands dogs and how to work with their owners too.Jul 3, 2018Verified
- 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.
