“If I'm being very honest, had we not had Robin's intervention, I don't know that we would still have our girl today."
Our signature reactivity program. This comprehensive BAT program was designed specifically for large and giant breed dogs living with the effects of trauma. But it can do wonders for any large breed struggling with fear, frustration, manners, and reactivity. Private in-home lessons in London Ontario.
Our most popular program! Teach your overly excited canine to relax, build self control, and increase focus. A customized enrichment plan to ensure that you are meeting their needs, a tried & true protocol to build calmness, and a series of fun and simple pattern games to support focus.

Expert Dog Training in London Ontario
I practice a specialized method for reactivity, and other serious behavior issues: Behavior Adjustment Training or BAT.
It is empowering, humane, relationship focused, and particularly helpful for dogs living with the effects of trauma.
My programs are exclusively private lessons, in person or virtually.
This is not traditional dog training. Here is what I offer:
A deeper understanding of your pup
Basic manners lessons focused on real life skills
Practical handling skills designed for big dogs
Specialized methods for helping with fear, frustration, and reactivity
A trauma-informed approach backed by science
A transformed relationship with your canine

"Even after just the first session with Robin, my stress level went from 11 to 3."
Positive Dog Training for Large & Giant Breeds
I've spent my life around large and giant breed canines so I understand their unique challenges and needs.
I grew up around GSDs and in my adult life I fell in love with the Mastiff type - the breed group that I am most familiar and work the most with.
My current pup is a Boerboel / Ridgeback living with the effects of brain trauma.
My previous rescue was an English Mastiff mix who came to us with severe aggression.
Add to all that my formal education and I am uniquely qualified to help the biggest of canines with the biggest of feelings.
Big-dog training can be humane. I can show you how. Right here in London Ontario.
The methods I employ do not require painful devices, harsh punishments, or any of that alpha/dominance stuff.
Do you like the sound of that? Set up an intro call with me to find out how I can help.
We do not currently offer puppy or k9 obedience classes in London Ontario as we favor the value that we can provide in the context of the private instruction. Group classes can make a great learning and socialization experience and are a fun way to practice obedience with lots of distractions and we may offer them in the future.
