Veteran K-9 Handler Founded
Robinson Dog Training LLC (RDT) is the Original Veteran K-9 Handler Founded Phoenix Dog Training Company, now located in Mesa. We specialize in private dog training, but also offer a full range of dog training services especially house manners and all of the basics needed for training a great dog. With Private training, Group Class, Snake Aversion, and Advanced training options, we have something for everyone.
The Best Dog Training Instruction
The training takes place right in your neighborhood, with all the usual distractions you and your dog face every day. You and your dog can enjoy life with more freedom. Dog owners should feel confident, happy, and proud of their dogs when they’re consistently well-behaved, no matter what distractions they face.
Commitment to Excellence
This world class program was created with the needs of pet dog owners in mind but our methods are founded on the training taught to our Military K-9 handlers. The commitment to excellence has been a driving factor in our training program and is one of our biggest core values.

Want the best for your pets, of course, you do so do we! The key to good training is education, consistency, and time. Let us show you why we’re the best. Our unique program starts with a solid educational foundation then moves through all of the basic commands We can even address house-manners like jumping, barking, table surfing, digging, destruction and more.
Already have the basics, wanna do something cool? Try one of our advanced training programs in Family Protection. Protection Dog Training is suitable for all dogs with a high prey drive and even pets. If you don’t know what prey drive is please get a copy of our training manual FIDO or Fundamentals In Dog Obedience. Protection Dog training teaches your dog when to bite and when not to. If your dog already plays tug of war with a rope then you are halfway there. Training does not make your dog mean or any less of a pet.

A growing number of people are choosing to train their own service dogs with our help. This keeps costs down and still gives you the expert advice and guidance you need to reach your goals. Upon completion of our program, your dog will meet all ADA Guidelines and you will be able to take your dog with you with unrestricted access in public places.
Our Training Program
Who We Are
Our founder Louis W. Robinson, US Airforce Military Working Dog Handler/Trainer Supervisor and Lead trainer, created a dog training program for pet owners from the ground up. Only using the best, most effective techniques. We believe that the best way to teach a dog is to teach the owner to use a blend of positive,negative,and neutral reinforcement, creating a well-balanced dog. The dog will still be allowed to be a dog and maintain the desirable parts of his unique personality. Dog training will not make your dog a robot, but you will have the best dog possible with our guidance. We do Phoenix dog training with hand-picked techniques, ensuring the top results.
Unique Training Programs
Our training program is unique because it utilizes both traditional and modern training techniques. It’s the best of both worlds and our programs are designed around teaching the owner. We never teach anyone to hit or abuse dogs! We love, care, and have respect for our canine companions. Try one of our training programs, and see how quickly behavioral issues disappear! Working with domestic pets is our specialty, so we can train your pet to be obedient and help you take them anywhere hassle-free. The best thing is seeing dogs who have always been on leashes, now off leash and obedient! Dogs and owners both get a kick out of seeing each other’s joy when they learn a new command without a leash.
There are two sides to dog training: positive-only and avoidance training. Both styles of training are useful, but neither one of these styles should be entilrely relied on. Positive-only training consists of voice tone, body positioning, praise, and food reward. We have found that only using the techniques from this type of training often produces less than desirable results, with the dog only performing if the reward is “good enough.” Avoidance training typically uses training tools like slip collars, choke chains, pinchers, and shock collars but not all dogs need those. There are several variations of these methods but the all rely on classical conditioning techniques, if an inexperienced or untrained person utilizes these tools incorrectly, the result could be a scared, timid dog, or even aggressive dog and can create a whole new set of issues. Every case is different, and there is no one size fits all solution. Let us help determine the best method for you,

Custom Dog Training Program
We know great trainers have a thorough understanding of all styles of training and when to use them, and we do not focus on one specific style. This allows us to teach you when to use each style to provide the best results.
Build a strong bond
Proper training builds strong bonds. Basic obedience training is a must, to ensure a well balanced and happy life for your dog. You’ll love having the peace of mind, that comes with knowing how to train your dog. Having a well-behaved dog that follows directions and does what you ask is awesome!
Education for the Human
We believe that the most important part of the process is educating the owner. Once the owner is trained to communicate properly the dog will fall into line . Dogs should have a social structure with humans at the top to prevent confusion, stress, and other more serious behavioral issues. Our easy to understand communication techniques are so simple you will wish you had this understanding sooner. Creating a proper pack structure within your home is essential for your family and dog. We make dog training easy in Phoenix and across the valley!
No Breed Restrictions
From working dogs to pets we’re comfortable with some of the toughest cases. Small dog? Yes, we do ankle biters too.
