Doberman’s are a medium-large sized dog, originally bred to be guard dogs, they are still used worldwide as guard dogs as well as being used in police forces and the military. They can make good rescue or even therapy dogs when properly trained.
Doberman’s are driven, strong and stubborn, they need commitment and care from their owner in order to strive. They have extremely high intelligence (and in fact are ranked among breeds such as Border Collies, German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers for intelligence) and so it is of the utmost importance than you achieve pack leader status in order to stop any destructive behaviour.
As with most breeds, early socialization is important to prevent unwanted aggression towards other dogs. The modern Doberman is much more good-natured than they were historically and can be very loving and loyal to their owners. Their main personality traits are; watchful, fearless and obedient. They have very high energy levels so need lots of exercise!
Our training starts at a basic level where the dog is taught to obey simple commands and goes right up to specialist training for personal protection or service dogs.
Training options include:
- Basic obedience
- Intermediate/advanced obedience
- Person protection training
- Executive protection training
Called Rob in desperation a few weeks ago after my, then 12 wk old, Belgian Malinois pup would jump at and bite anyone, whenever she felt like it, to the point I was unable to have her in the vicinity of my 5 and 6-year-old children.
Rob came for an assessment within 2 days of my call and we saw instant results, these slipped slightly in the week between lessons and she managed to jump in through the window from the garden and bit our 5yo. Rob was quick to get in touch and took her for 3 days residential training and she has been fantastic since. We still have a long way to go but our 6yo can now walk her unaided and they will sit together for cuddles. (still working on the 5yo confidence). No temperament seems to be too much for Rob, I swear he’s some sort of miracle-worker! Can’t wait to see the final results when she completes her course!

Brilliant trainer saved my Danny Boy a wayward wild biter, no one else would go near that dog. Rob turned him around and did some amazing things.
After some training he went to London regularly as a demo dog and Dan would happily sit amongst busy crowds minding his own business…a child approached my dog on one occasion and stroked Danny…it was amazing to watch as the dog rolled onto his back and let it play with him….yeah this man can and does train and rehabilitate dogs.
I would recommend him and if necessary ask for his help again without any hesitation. THANKS, ROB FOR SAVING DANNY.

We have our family Doberman being family protection trained he’s 5 weeks in and we have noticed a big difference in him he’s gone from being a live wire running everywhere 100mph to a calm obedient dog. He’s enjoying his work too when he gets picked up by Rob he gets all excited so we know he’s happy to be going. We have had YouTube clips sent on a regular basis showing us what he’s been doing and a regular report. Very pleased with everything so far looking forward to the finished product.
It’s fascinating watching an excitable dog that wants to run in 3 directions at once as if it’s lead and owner don’t exist go from that to walking to heel, obeying one-word commands and looking eager for more within the first hour of dedicated training
I’ve recently started working as a security dog handler and the one on one training and group training sessions I’ve had so far are not only a lot of fun for me and Bruno (16 months Belgium Malinois) but he responds much more sharply to his commands with every session and there’s always a little something new
It’s clear to see even only after a couple of months with him that I will have a police standard personal protection dog within a few more months.
Very happy ???? highly recommended ????

We have had 3 weeks training with our twin 15-month-old Boxer Boys and the difference already has been remarkable!
We struggled to walk them at all due to their excessive pulling and now we can walk them both using one hand! We’re so excited to see how they can progress over the next few weeks and can’t thank Rob enough for the differences we’ve seen in them already.
