Join Robin for 3 days of training that will improve the relationship you have with your dog and allow you to have way more fun together!
At dog training camp you will learn how easy it can be to create a balanced life style with your dog.
Robin is a leading authority in the use of remote training collars. While attending camp you will be introduced to safe, humane and effective e-collar use. The training will help you gain confidence to have off leash control of your dog.
Off leash reliability = a happier dog and way more fun!
But, you will also participate in trick training, canine body conditioning, and agility exercises that provide mental stimulation for your dog plus build coordination and confidence. You will learn healthcare and nutrition tips that help create a healthier lifestyle for your dog.
At dog training camp you will improve your dog’s behavior, but you’ll also learn why your dog does what he does. Understanding how your dog thinks and learns makes you a better dog owner, and better trainer. Your dog will thank you for coming to Dog Training Camp!
All breeds are welcome. Dogs should be at least 5 months of age in order to participate. Camp is not for dogs with aggression issues or serious behavior problems.
Please contact us if you have questions about your dogs ability to attend camp.

Dog camp is an e-collar based training curriculum, with an emphasis on the whole dog. You won’t leave dependent on the tool, but you will hone your training skills so you can operate more effectively in real world settings. If you’re ready to have fun and build a better bond with your dog this is the perfect weekend for you. If you have been interested in getting your dog started on e-collar training and want to work with Robin to learn the best techniques, this is a great opportunity.
With emphasis on the whole dog, not only will you learn how to incorporate the e-collar into your training in a way that improves control and obedience, you will learn how to do it in a way that is also fun and engaging for your dog! Robin will help develop your leadership skills so you can communicate better with Fido whether you have the collar on or not. You’ll participate in a wide variety of activities and exercises that will help the shy dogs come out of their shell and help the more assertive dogs to have better impulse control.
Dog camp is specifically created for pet owners who want a fuller life with their dog. If you want an obedient dog who can travel with you and gracefully behave in public settings, this weekend is for you. If you want a dog who is more motivated to listen to you and one you can learn to trust off leash, this weekend is for you. If you want to understand your dog better and learn a few new tricks, this weekend is for you!
The spring 2022 Dog Training Camp will be May 27-29th in Earlville, IL.
Three FULL days of training and fun!
