Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
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
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 started as soon as he walked in the door. Two hours flew by and I couldn't believe the things my puppies were doing. All the strategies he used we could easily work on until the next lesson. Our walks have been much more pleasant and we have been able to introduce the puppies to people with a lot less jumping.Mar 15, 2018Verified
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

- 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.
