Why I Trained My Dog with Robert Cabral

I met Harold and Cheri with their young puppy Rio the Alano Español almost a year ago. They wanted to do a session or two to steer them in the right direction, and boy did it.

Seeing Harold and Rio do so well in the training inspired me to shoot this short video/interview about their progress. If only everyone was this dedicated to their dogs! #dogtraining #alano #doglover Visit us here for Dog Training, Dog Behavior Guides, Dog Grooming…

Recently AVSAB, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, put out a Position Statement on Humane Dog Training - calling for the banning of dog training tools and methods including electric collars, prong/pinch collars, choke chains, and more.

It's not only unfair, but it's also downright DEADLY to the dogs that need training the most. For more than 12 years I've worked with animal shelters including Los Angeles…
