Introduction
NOW ACCEPTING PAYPAL and CREDIT CARDS. Sign up for training and the consult is FREE (excludes housetraining only. Do you need help training a puppy, adult dog, or rescued dog? Do you need help with housetraining, obedience, or behavioral issues? In addition to being a professional training instructor for 30+ years, I have extensive experience in veterinary medicine and other dog-related fields. Murphdog Dog Training offers Professional Training for Dogs and Their Families, specializing in obedience, behavior, social skills, and house training/puppy rearing. Additionally, I have a time-tested/puppy-tested successful method for house training that I offer as part of private training . I OFFER PACKAGES to make training more affordable. There is much more to "training" than just obedience. I help turn the "family dog" into a wonderful "member of the family". Behavioral conditioning, social grace, and good manners are extremely important and can only be accomplished with understanding, devotion, and the right technique. A "COMPLETE TRAINING PACKAGE" for OBEDIENCE and BEHAVIORAL TRAINING, may include Sit/Stay, Sit/Stay at Door, Walking at Heel, No Pulling, No Jumping, Greeting Guests, Go-To-Place, Come-When-Called, Leave-It, Drop-It Puppy-Rearing, Separation Anxiety, Impulse Control, Destructive, Guarding Resources, Fear Issues, Barking, Biting, Voice Control, Body Language, Leash Control, Separation Anxiety, Impulse Control, Self-Esteem, Destruction, Guarding Resources, Vehicle Safety, Fear-based Issues, Barking, Biting, Playtime Protocol, Socialization Skills with outings to shopping centers and Lowes/Home Depot, and so much more… PLUS ONGOING SUPPORT. I'm also VERY SUCCESSFUL with housetraining. LOOKING FOR JUST SOME BASIC TRAINING? NEED HELP WITH HOUSE TRAINING? TEACHING YOUR PUPPY TO WALK ON A LEASH? ARE YOU SLEEPING IN THE LIVING ROOM NEXT TO YOUR PUPPY?  I NEVER USE SHOCK COLLARS. I DO NOT DO BOARD AND TRAIN. I truly believe that training is most successful when done in the home with the pet parent. I only do private training in the pet parent's home, neighborhood, and outings to stores and walking trails for socialization. Of course, all sessions are done with the pet parent. Because of my extensive experience, I am considered a Canine Behaviorist and a Canine Specialist; someone with training and experience in more than one dog-related field. Every method used is explained and practiced with the pet parents to ensure success. No two dogs are alike and teaching methods must be adjusted and appropriate for each dog and its family. ***

Was sceptical that we could train our 2 year old Havanese out of some of his bad behavior but we have made a ton of progress using the methods we have learned. A little work a few times a week We had tried every device on YouTube videos and Amazon suggestions He’s a great dog, he just didn’t know what we wanted him or asking him to do

I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Jenna Robins as a dog trainer! I am working with her right now and after the first two sessions Max is like a whole new dog! She is super fun to talk to and is great at what she does! By far the best $$ ever spent! If you need a dog trainer she is the one to go to!

Jenna is knowledgeable and professional (but still very enjoyable to be around). We adopted a very nervous dog with bad manners and Jenna has taught us, the pet parents, as well as our dog so that our family is learning together. My dog is happier and more relaxed with the structure and boundaries she is learning, which means happier and more relaxed humans. Jenna has been well worth the investment as she has been available to address the odd question or concern between lessons as well as address our big concerns during our lessons. My favorite part is that she doesn’t just train our dog, she teaches us how to interact with our dog and explains why it is important to do things as we do. I would absolutely recommend Jenna to anyone struggling to establish some normalcy between themselves and their pet. 5 stars!

Jenna is excellent. My needs are to calm puppy behavior, have him learn skills including reaction to dogs, door behavior, and several other things that will make him an enjoyable puppy for outings and travel. She asks questions about your needs, assesses the dog, and works in his environment. I see a real difference and we have additional time for more. Her demeanor is perfect for the job.
