November 5th – 11th – Education at Sea

Professional Trainer Continuing Education

If you need help learning how to work ON your dog business rather than IN your business, this is the course for you. Developing a strategy for growth doesn’t come naturally for everyone in the dog profession. Often trainers are so over-whelmed with the hands on training of dogs that they don’t make time to lay out a solid plan. The Education at Sea event allows you to have time to relax, refresh AND get guidance on creating an individual blueprint for the next steps in your career. The ability to help other trainers develop a plan is something that Robin has a particular passion for and takes pride in helping others succeed.

Here is a glimpse into what happened on the last voyage.

March 2nd – 5th, 2018 – Harper’s Ferry, WV

Remote collar training workshop

This workshop is open only to Professional Dog Trainers.  Working spots are limited and only one dog per handler is recommended for a working position.

This 4 day workshop is ideally suited for students who have worked with Robin in the past and understand her approach to remote collar use. Handlers new to Robin’s approach to collar use or attending a working spot with dogs at a beginner level will advance according to the dog’s degree of readiness.

Each dog/handler team will have time allotted to work on their individual goals, assess problem behaviors and outline the steps necessary for advancement.
