Hi! I'm Bob, the proud owner of Trunell Dog Training LLC based in NE St. John's County, Florida. I started this business with one goal in mind; to help you and your dog build an amazing bond based on love, trust and mutual understanding.
I offer private in-home training, using only positive, reward-based techniques.
No prong or shock collars, no harsh words.
Training is tailored for you and your dog, so we can focus on what is most important to you.
Dogs adapt quickly! Your dog will soon realize that good behavior and obedience come with reward. I teach you and your dog the techniques; with repetition and commitment, these soon become second nature for you both.
In 2019, we adopted Luna. She was 2 years old and had been in a couple of different shelters; she also washed out of K9s for Warriors. Luna knew some basic commands, and was fully house trained, but I don't think she had ever been on a leash in her life - and as she quickly grew to 90 lbs., it was clear that some training was desperately needed!
It took a little patience, a lot of love, and continued positive reinforcement. Luna became a confident, well-behaved dog, and we developed an amazing bond, built on trust and love.
Fast forward to 2021, and my search for a new career. After 30+ years as a professional magician/comedian, I was looking for something that I would love just as much - and I've found it!
First, I became certified as a dog trainer with Petco. I enjoyed my time there and was able to gain the skills and experience to build this company. I've always had a natural connection with dogs, as well as with people, and becoming a dog trainer has been the perfect fit.
One-hour single session.
Perhaps you want to check us out, or maybe we've worked together before, and you just need a refresher to fine tune your training.
Designed for dogs who have already had some training and need just a little more. I'll assess your dog's knowledge and we'll decide together on what we should focus on during our hourly sessions over the course of 4 weeks.
Perfect for puppies or adult dogs with little to no training. Pick a day and time and we'll spend an hour together every week for 6 weeks.
We'll work on basic obedience cues and/or any behavioral issues you may be experiencing.
Please contact me if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Typically, an hour a week for 6 weeks will suit most training needs. You will work with your dog during the week too; just a couple of short 5-10 minute sessions daily will reinforce good behavior.
Your dog will be more focused at home, free of the distractions and extra stimulation they would have in a pet store. We will be working in their true environment and can practice real-life situations.
Absolutely! This is one reason why private in-home training is so much more convenient than group or store classes. We can skip a week or find another time that works for you; I work around your schedule.
We start with basic obedience cues; come, sit, down, heel, stay, wait, leave it, and loose leash walking.
Any specific problem you may be having, including, but not limited to, house training, crate training, jumping, etc.
Yes! Just because a dog was not trained as a puppy, it doesn't mean he cannot learn. I've successfully trained dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes. If you do have a puppy, we can start training at 8 weeks.
