What folks are saying ...
Fafner is a high spirited 16-month-old standard poodle. Kizz Robinson - 2B Dog Training - has been working with Fafner since the day he came home. She was at our house with a clicker and pocket full of treats, helping us make his crate a wonderful haven. His crate is still his favorite spot - this alone is worth gold.
As experienced dog owners, we realized training an urban puppy posed real challenges, and this time around we wanted HELP. Kizz Robinson cheerfully helps us recognize both good and undesirable dog behaviors and teaches us ways to effectively communicate with this smart, stubborn hairball.
Fafner likes to romp, jump like a randy goat, and enjoys long walks on the beach. He especially loves a mud bath with that special someone - and as an added bonus, 2b Dog Training even accompanied us to the “Wash Your Own Dog” feature at our local groomer the first time he transformed into a hippo.
While Fafner is certainly still a work in progress, he’s survived his terrible teens and is showing us moments of the affectionate, charming, mostly obedient guy he’s becoming. Kizz Robinson at 2B Dog Training can take a lot of credit for this. She has been a HUGE help in providing and interpreting the operating manual for this nut.
I would recommend her to anyone wanting answers to the weird questions our dogs pose.
I connected with Kizz when my year-old terrier rescue, Maggie, starting having problems with anxiety and fear-based aggression, and she's been an absolutely invaluable part of Maggie's training and evolution. Kizz is a terrific listener and is incredibly compassionate with both me and Maggie.
She helped me work through Maggie's issues, and was both creative and flexible in coming up with solutions.
Kizz is smart, resourceful, and also organized -- her training emails are incredibly thorough (and she will definitely make sure you do your homework!).
She trained me as much as she trained Maggie, and both of us are better off for it
STELLA AND PRAIRIE
Prairie was like a fan of anxiety that unfolded in the first months we had her. Now I feel like we are doing EVERYTHING we can and her progress is better with all the pieces in place.
Kizz coaches you on how to be a good trainer for your own individual dog, she pivots her focus as things arise, and, she has the focus, experience and skill to stick long term with high needs dogs.
Jennifer and Peter
We loved working with Kizz, who helped us turn our lil pup into a lovebug!
We get many compliments whenever we take her out as she is great with leash walking and very gentle.
Lalta and Marilyn
Kizz was so lovely, friendly, and made the techniques very accessible. She didn’t make us feel judged if we messed up!
We had a sweet dog beforehand who had some challenging behaviors who became a dog we knew how to handle well and who behaved like a dream afterwards.
Hands down, hire Kizz!
If your goal is to build a strong relationship with your dog and make changes that will last - this is for you.
Before we met Kizz it was very difficult to live with Fleet. It was a full time job trying to take care of him. Now we have a dog who is easier to live with and likes to have fun hiking and camping
We brought home a reactive rescue dog that didn’t trust us and was a source of fear. After working with Kizz our dog has completely changed. She is a happy pup with so much love to give and rarely shows signs of fear and aggression towards us like she did before. We are very happy and grateful to have our dog today!
I recommend Kizz to people all the time! Especially if I see their pup is struggling. I say, “The best thing we did for our dog was work with a behavior consultant to help her feel more confident and less reactive. It’s so worth it to build trust with your dog and understand their behavior so they can feel safer and live a happier life! Our dog has come so far and I would definitely recommend working with someone if you are able to!”
I feel like our dog appreciates us more and is willing to listen more. Our quality of life together is so much better now!
I have tried to follow general advice on the internet and to do my own research. Having a set plan and how to deal with certain scenarios is more helpful, and I feel more confident knowing that a trainer is helping/guiding us along the way.
Life with our dog was stressful before, and it felt like things were hopeless and stuck the way they were. Now I feel so much more confident in figuring out what our dog needs/wants, and how to train him to provide the most happiness and comfort for him.
I trust Kizz a lot! While she is very knowledgeable about the methodical ways to train dogs in general, she also listens to the specific problems and situations of the dog and formats a plan based on that.
The detailed recap of the training sessions is a great resource to check whenever I need a reminder!
