If you are considering learning more about remote collars, ask yourself:

  • Do you struggle to confidently speak about the advantages of remote collar training or worry that your clients may not use the tool correctly?
  • Would you like to improve the effectiveness of your lesson plans so your clients can achieve success more easily?
  • Have you wanted to learn about remote collar applications, but haven’t found a mentor whose philosophy about dogs and training aligns with your own?
  • Are you worried that using a remote collar will diminish the dog’s spirit or the mere mention of the tool will cause potential clients to seek services elsewhere?
  • Are you interested in enhancing your instructing skills and building a tribe of highly devoted clients?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, the Ecademy program is what you are looking for!

What is the Ecademy?

The Ecademy program had humble beginnings in 2002 when a few professional trainers asked Robin to teach them what she knew about using a remote collar. Through years of refinement, it grew into an immersive, hands-on learning experience that breaks down integration of remote training collars into a pet training program into three skills necessary for success:

Explaining, Training, and Coaching

The Ecademy program is taught in both an in-person format and new, in 2024, a virtual program! The in-person option is a 40 hour, hands-on experience taught over 5 days. The virtual option covers the same material from the comfort of your home, over a six week period. The virtual option is a combination of pre-recorded lectures and video combined with 6 weeks of weekly coaching calls.

BOTH courses are taught by Robin. Both involve lecture, Robin demonstrating techniques plus, your hands on participation working with dogs. Virtual participants have the option to share videos of their work with Robin to receive personalized feedback.

  • Identify how timing, cadence, and stimulation levels influence performance, and confidently demonstrate these concepts so that your clients can reproduce the same results.
  • Diversify your program offerings by identifying when and how to adjust the lesson plan so you can easily incorporate remote collars into board and train, day-training or private lesson formats.

Pricing ranges from $1895.00 up to a VIP coaching program of $10,500 that includes a full year of support.

There is a summer session in Iowa each year. Other sessions are hosted by trainers around the US and Canada. Contact Robin for upcoming dates and locations.

Yes, for both the in-person and virtual programs you are expected to do hands-on work with dogs. The training can be done with a personal dog(s) or a client dog(s), but the dog should not have any prior ecollar experience.

You are encouraged play full on by attending each of the live sessions. However, we understand that life happens. Live calls will be recorded and you will be provided access to the replays.

Yes, there are several options available for continued mentorship for both dog training and business coaching.

The Ecademy course redefines what it is to elevate a pet owners success and satisfaction through remote collar training. When your clients do better, your business does better!
