“A very knowledgeable and fun instructor. For myself who knew nothing about herding, she broke all the skills down so it was easier to understand. With my two dogs who have very different personalities, Robin’s skills and techniques helped me understand and appreciate herding all together. It is a great sport and with Robins help I will be ready to compete.”

“I am so thankful to have found Robin as an instructor. She is an excellent teacher. She gives undivided attention to me and my dog Molly, and she is able to convey her knowledge in a patient and effective manner. Molly and I both have made incredible progress since starting to train with her. I was looking for a trainer who would take a personal interest in us, support and advise us during trials, celebrate the wins, and learn from the losses. I have found all of that, and more with Robin. She is wonderful!
— Stacy Muoio and Molly
“Through herding, Robin is committed to help strengthen the bond between you and your dog and to help you grow as partners. Whether you just want to herd for fun or you’re preparing your dog to enter (and win) herding trials, Robin is the best in the area by far. She is not only interested in teaching you the art of herding, she loves watching her students succeed.”
