Introduction: Thank you for considering family dog training for your dog training needs. I've been training dogs since 1978 professionally. I have trained obedience, personal protection dogs and police service dogs in that time. At Family Dog Training all our lessons are private and done in your home. Programs we offer are. Puppy starter classes, obedience training, Personal protection training and behavioral modification training.Feel free to drop us a line and set up your Free Evaluation...or if you like you can look us up on social media.. And you can rest assure all of our training is based on repetition -consistency- and a lot of praise..Here we move slow you might say we take baby steps with your pet.We also work in the beginning in a non distraction area gradually we will bring on more and more distractions when you're ready for it and when your dog is ready for it much easier this way on the dog and you. trying to teach your dog around distractions in the beginning is like trying to teach a child ABCs in the middle of toys r us, not very successful that way. Our method of training is more like teaching a child. We teach right from wrong through obedience ,once you open up that line of communication all your pets behavioral problems are much easier to solve.Have a great day and we hope to hear from you

Uncle Bob was absolutely incredible to work with! I did the 12 week course with my puppy, Mango. I saw improvement after week 1. I am amazed with the difference in how my dog responds to me now. I would 1000% recommend Family Dog Training to anyone! Thanks Bob!

Our trainer taught me as much as she did the pup. Our girl is much less impulsive now and is getting better every day we work with her. I liked that there is no punishment and a positive attitude. I know from experience that terriers are a challenge in obedience training. I plan on review classes in the spring and an extension of training when our terrier is a little older and ready for more than the basics. I especially recommend Family Dog Training as they are focused on what the name says, family dogs, and useful behaviors for living comfortably with a family.

I have worked with trainers and my dogs over the course of years. Never have I been this satisfied with the results, the professionalism and the training. Uncle Bob truly understands how to get my dog to do exactly what is asked of her. Bob has helped create a team between Finley my pup and I I couldn’t ask for more! The best trainer I’ve ever worked with

Uncle Bob is bar none a legend among dog trainers. Not only is he very patient with the dog. But he understands our dog and knows exactly how to train her. Bob takes a slow and methodical approach. Including small victories, baby steps and makes sure that both dog and the dog owner understands everything before continuing. He is also very good at calling his clients and checking in. We signed up for his full 8 week class and I'm glad we did. 100% approval. This man is my new go to for anything dog training.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing we do is an evaluation,which consists of me working your dog a little bit and talking to the owners and finding out exactly what you want to achieve in training.

    I have been in the dog industry as a professional trainer since 1978 I have trained simple obedience to advanced police service dogs
