Private Dog Training

Dog Board & Train and Private Lessons

Out with a current student in the dog board and train program.

Stay Training

Private stay and train is the ultimate dog training experience for your pup, they’ll have their own private dog trainer.

A private dog board and train with Robin means that your dog will be getting an exclusive training opportunity as a member of her household. Your dog will be living with her; exploring, learning, playing and adopting the same structure and rules she uses to achieve amazing results with her personal dogs.  

Robin only takes one dog at a time for training (exceptions for 2-dog households). She will teach your dog all of the basic obedience skills including, Sit, Place, loose lead walking, and Come when called, and good manners like being quiet when told, no jumping on visitors, dropping things from the mouth when told and so much more!

Additionally, training with Robin means that your dog will be learning while on real life adventures. Robin frequently takes her dogs along with her while hiking, camping, visiting canine friendly cafes, or while relaxing with friends at a BBQ or around a campfire. Any Stay and Train pup will accompany Robin and her pack on these adventures. These experiences provide your dog excellent learning opportunities to practice good social skills with people and other canines. Comprehensive exposure to training in the real world is what allows you to fully enjoy your dog.

Minimum stay is three weeks for the dog. However, owners are asked to stay for two days when you return to pick up your pup. This allows time for training you on how to continue the dog’s newly learned good behavior. Your dog will be e-collar literate to a variety of obedience commands upon completion. You will be provided materials to help you retain the concepts. Plus, you will have direct access to Robin for text and email support if questions arise.

Private Lessons

Training with Robin means your dog learns but also, YOU learn how to maintain your dog’s good behavior!

If you are interested in taking private dog training lessons rather than a stay and train, contact Robin to visit her in Dubuque, IA. or inquire about having Robin travel to you for training at your home. To discuss private lessons please contact
