Wits End Founder, Robin Wenham

Robin Wenham is a dog behavior specialist, professional training instructor and trainer.

"It is my vocation to make a difference
in the lives of the dogs I meet
and the lives of their owners...
I love to solve problems.
I use gentle coaching to prevent
and cure behavioral problems in dogs."

Wits End Philosophy - There are no bad dogs

Wits End training methods are strongly based on the philosophy that there are no bad dogs; there are untrained dogs, poorly trained dogs, confused dogs, and frightened dogs. Please keep this in mind throughout your training journey, as it will help you be the best trainer you can be. Dogs take their cues from humans, so keep calm and focused on the task at hand. - Find out more »
