My Feeding Routine!


Building a solid relationship with your puppy means getting the puppy to look at you and engage with you.  But the big question is, “How do we do that?”  Do we use treats? Toys? Compulsion? What if the puppy chooses not to pay attention or finds something else more interesting?

In this lesson I address this issue with a new puppy.  Nello has an issue focussing on his owners and it is one of the reasons that I worked with him.  We took him to a big park with lots of smells and distractions.  Building the engagement was a game changer for Nello and it is a great lesson for any dog / puppy owner.

A big thank you to Walter and Marion for bringing Nello to me to train!

Thank you sincerely Robert for your training session and continued advice. It is hard to believe the tremendous progress Dora and Burton have made. It is hard to believe that they literally were trying to attack each other instantly if even near one another over a month ago.

Thanks to Robert our beautiful shelter dog has a chance at a new life with his forever home.

“Sparky” required immediate assessment and correction for aggressive fear behaviors, which were discovers by Robert upon his first visit to our home. Without Robert’s intervention, we doubt that Sparky would have survived, so we cannot recommend Robert’s methods enough. Kudos to Robert.

No one ever did for an animal and for myself what Robert has done, he’s made me understand the why’s and the very nature of dogs.

Robert produces a level of skill & competence that is rare in any field. He has such a deep and spiritual understanding of animals, he gets results quickly.

Rose is happier and safer today because Robert set us on the right path. I’m so grateful to Robert for opening up another world of understanding for us.

I refer him (Robert) regularly as a trainer with amazing “dog” intuition and someone who can get the job done. He is straight forward and honest and I trust him.

He is truly man’s man’s best friend. Thank you Robert for all you do and giving me hope for our canine friends.
