Training all types of dogs from Toy Poodles - Great Danes, from 8 weeks - 14 years old.
From Basic Obedience - Protection*
*Note* will only train an Alert dog for the general public.
I do not teach a dog to bite for the general public. I will however teach a dog to show defensive aggression as well as teach it excellent control while remaining a sociable and friendly dog. But if the owner or a member of the family felt threatened, they could give a command to the dog to show what appears to be major aggression. This is usually enough to deter most people intent on harming the dogs owners.
I took my 4 month old puppy out for a walk by myself for the first time and it was an amazing. No pulling, he listened to me "I was in control", we walked by a group of 5 kids and dogs. All went well, he is the best behaved 4 month old puppy I have ever seen and we are told that daily by strangers! I am a proud mommy!
I then took my other 6 year old dog out for a walk by myself and I was able to control her too. I have never been able to do that and the funny thing is she didn't go through dog training with Robin. I learned that much with Robin that I was able to teach my other dog.
Thank you Robin you are amazing, you are our land o lakes caesar!

****It just keeps getting better....
Robin is an amazing dog trainer. She puts you and your dog in real case senarios and teaches you to always be in charge. Her involvement with our puppy and her German Shepherd was remarkable. The training our puppy got with her German Shepherd was priceless, it sped his training and interaction with other dogs. I would recommend Robin to anyone that has a dog that needs good behavior training. We love our dogs and look forward to coming home to them and taking them out in public.
Our biggest outing was taking our 5 month old puppy on an 9 hour trip to Georgia.
He did exceptionaly well in a strange home, car trip, went on a walk with dogs he didn't know and a 4 mile hike. Thanks Again Robin!

Pepper, who was known as the "wild man" before meeting Robin, has become much more of a companion despite that he is just 9 months old. Robin was successful in settling Pepper down considerably in the first few minutes of her initial visit. Of course, Robin trains me, too!
First off I would just like to tell you that Robin is AMAZING at what she does. If you are looking for someone who can train your dog and more importantly you, she is the one and only person I would recommend. She embraces the "be the pack-leader" philosophy along with positive reinforcement.
I called Robin in desperation about our newest dog, Zeus; s...he listened to my concerns and even made time to come out that very same day and the training started right then. From she moment she walked in the door, she commanded my dog's attention just by using her presence, posture, and eye contact- a few treats didn't hurt either!
Not only did she ask for and receive Zeus's respect, she showed me how to get the same results. Robin gave me the tools I needed to be able to "lead" my dog and establish that I was in charge and that he could trust that I would protect him from anything he feared. Our first session was only an hour but by the time she walked out the door, I was reassured and confident that I could help Zeus be the dog he wanted and we needed him to be with her help.
I cannot thank Robin enough because I truly believe that without her help Zeus would not be the fantastic dog that he is. So, THANK YOU ROBIN! You are THE BEST!

I have attached a picture of Zeus, my 1 & 1/2 year old, 90 lbs, Rotti/mix. He looks very serious in this picture but is really a giant goofball! He must have known this pic would be seen by many!
I can’t say enough about how great Robin has been as our trainer.Yes, she really trains humans, not dogs.Our puppy obeyed her every command from the moment she stepped into the house. The trick was for her to teach us how to have the same affect.
She has done a phenomenal job!Even our 3 year old has learned how to properly handle our 50+ pound chocolate lab puppy! Our friends and people we see in the neighborhood while on our walk comment about what a great dog she is.
A few months ago we needed to go out of town, so I called a good friend to ask if she would take care of Meggie for a week.She said that was a great idea because her husband and kids wanted a lab and she thought this would be a good opportunity to show all of them how much work a dog would really be.I instructed the kids in a few basic commands (that we learned from Robin, of course). When we came back, she said her plan had back-fired, because Meggie was the best dog she’d ever had at her house! She was so easy and well-behaved that they now have their very own lab puppy!
Thanks to Robin for her excellent training! If you want to have a dog that’s a joy to be around and not a nuisance; run, don’t walk, to the nearest phone and call Good Behavior Dog Training.You won’t regret it!
I think I have a picture somewhere of Lydia practicing commands with Meggie. If I don't, I'll take one and send it. Lydia periodically will go get treats, take Meggie to the living room and go thru sit, down, stay, sit, down, sit, stay. Sometimes I have to tell her to go ahead and actually give the dog the treat, because Meggie does every single thing Lydia says on command. It's hilarious. The additions to the website look great, by the way!

Just thought I'd let you know... We took the dogs for a walk last night. First time EVER we could actually take a nice relaxing walk with them. It was awesome (You're the BOMB). I also have been practicing the bow you taught Bucky whenever I go down to th barn. He's getting pretty good. Geez girl, is there anything you can't... do? Dog and Horse whisperer you are! ♥
Audrey, myself and Cinder wish to thank you for your instructions and methods. I was amazed at Cinder's IMMEDIATE response to your leadership and obedience of your commands. She learned in minutes what I'd been trying for days to teach her.
I thought I was pretty good at basic obedience training until we met. Now I feel like Tiny Tim meeting Tom Jones!!!
Cinder is progressing very nicely and has become well-mannered while still being playful.
Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing you again.
