Weatherwax Dog Training
About this pro
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
We have a 10 month old super exuberant Vizsla. Robert is our second trainer. The difference is remarkable. Robert is a calm, insinc to the dog, all business trainer. No pinch collars, shock collars or methods other than positive reinforcement. He uses a 30 ft lead, giving her room to elect to choose herself the requested direction. And surpizingly she is learning to do just that! Bixie is responsive, attentive and making major strides in happily following his calm lead. She keeps her funny, own style flare and yet still accomplishes following her required directives. She started as a jumper and a mouth-first greeter which is not acceptable with small grandkids. Robert even takes the time to work with the kids so our family can all have a life long love of this quirky, especially spunky dog with tremendous pizazz. Robert respects the dog and the requirements of dog manners.Mar 9, 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.
