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.

Leave it to a Mal to create a bigger challenge for himself. 🤷‍♀️

Teaching him to earn his keep around the house. 😊
Got to meet this handsome boy today. We started some Ecollar conditioning to build a recall and improve his ability to pay better attention around distractions.

An absolutely lovely dog and a wonderful family to work with. 

Fun to be working a Standard Poodle! It’s been a long minute since I’ve had one go through a program. Smart and bouncy, it’s a great combo!!
Easy and fun way to switch things up: Chain a “center/middle” behavior to the end of your recall. 

Just remember to Hold Still! when they are coming in. 😜

Teach something new today. #beyourdogshero
Client updates like this are the best. Max and his owner are killin’ it! 

Do the work, reap the rewards. 🏆

I’ve been on location this week with a private client. 
The best feeling in the world for a trainer is to witness a candid moment when your client is putting to use the things you’ve been teaching. ❤️🥰
Temps finally got above zero today, that means a bit of fun!
My plans to head to CA for a seminar with the group @dogtrainerspodcast got wiped out by a winter storm…but at least these guys get enjoyment from it. 🐶❄️
