Providing a path for a partnership between dog and family through positive reinforcement training and being able to convey this partnership to others and their dogs is her mission. Blessed Furever Dog Training puts clients first and has high values and is referred to by local veterinarians.
Robin’s passion for dog training comes from her love and partnership for her two Shelties, Lady and Angel, both therapy dogs able to go most anywhere because they were well behaved.

CHIEF CANINE OFFICER
I started training when I was a puppy and learning new things and good behavior probably kept me out of trouble (sometimes). I went on to be in Obedience Competition and have three titles just like my predecessor Lady: Companion Dog, Companion Dog Excellent and Utility Dog.
My favorite thing is being in the park but I really like visiting with people during my therapy dog visits. Guess all that learning paid off…so I guess you could say I helped with getting Blessed Furever off and running.
