Puppy Training

Virtual Training

The early weeks of a puppy’s development are critical to long-term good manners and polite social behavior. Start housebreaking, limit puppy -biting and other nuisance behavior. Teach your puppy to calmly accept being in a crate and sleep through the night. Plus so much more...

Ecollar Training

Basic Obedience

Robin's Ecollar training video series provides off leash freedom for your dog and peace of mind for you! Robin’s step by step approach is easy to understand and easy to replicate.

This cutie is learning to recall to a whistle cue. It is helping him to come when called as he heads off to visit when the neighbors dogs are out. 🐾

He is also learning to not bolt out the door! That is a key skill that is going to keep him safer through his lifetime.

Starting early to teach your puppy some basic rules around your home makes life a lot easier down the road. They are easy clay to mold when you start training at 8-12 weeks of age.

Don’t delay training “until they are older”. Start now and prevent bad habits from getting engrained!

These two. 😍
It’s usually calm on this part of the Mississippi...not today and Gimli wasn’t sure what to make of it. 

Got his courage up and went in without any coaxing from me.

Building confidence in your pup as they mature is one of the best things you can do to develop a resilient dog. 

Good boy Gim. 🐾
My Tolller, Diva, was my main helper dog for many years. 

At 14 she isn’t up to the work very often anymore, but today she was the best fit to help Bella with a little off leash practice at one of our favorite hiking trails.

She’s deaf now so a perfect example of how much freedom ecollar training allows our dogs to have. 

Good work Diva! 💕
We are always practicing some little piece.

Some good news to share! 

There are still some polite, dog savvy people in the world. 🙌 

If you have time to walk your dog, you have time to work your dog. 

If you don’t have time to walk, consider if you really have time for a dog or not. 🤔

Dogs need motion, engagement and a relationship with you.

Make an effort. Get out and do things, Together.
