Introducing Bobbi Graves
My name is Bobbi Graves and I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College where I earned my certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer.  Animal Behavior College (ABC) is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school.  My year long commitment to this program has provided me with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives. My certification, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog while keeping alive the spark that makes your dog so special to you.
I currently have the privilege of working as a canine trainer for the residents of Animal Refuge Center, and Humane Society of Naples. I am a trainer for and member of the SWFL Professional Dog Trainers Alliance under the guidance of Jeannie Bates founder and lead trainer.
I have been working with dogs most of my life. The first dog I ever trained was a 4 year old Dachshund named Betsy when I was 12 years old. I am a dog lover first, and a dog trainer second. I have four wonderful canine companions currently in my household and they are my best teachers. I know from first-hand experience the difference dog training makes in the relationship between dog and guardian. Without professional training it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship, but with an investment in good training a wonderful transformation can and will occur.
My training philosophy is...
  • Human and Canine Bond is unique
  • If it is rewarding a dog will repeat it
  • Training should be fun 
  • If it is fun it will be repeated
  • I also believe....
  • We are Guardians not owners             
  • A commitment is for life
My training methods include...
  • Positive reinforcement
  • Luring
  • Shaping
  • Capturing
