Hi, folks! My name is Eliza Robinson. I’m the Founder and Head Trainer of Old Dominion Dog Training in Richmond, Virginia. A native of Richmond and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, my background is in marketing and communications.
A life-long dog lover, I discovered balanced training in early 2012 while researching training options for my Brittany puppy, Lally. Working with an awesome local trainer first on basic on-leash obedience then later on advanced off-leash obedience, I gained a great respect for the practice of balanced training. Often with dogs, it isn’t enough to only reward the good behavior and expect the unwanted behaviors to go away — we must address those unwanted behaviors directly to create meaningful relationships with our dogs. The biggest reward for a well-behaved dog is inclusion in our daily routines, as well as in the fun adventures! I founded Old Dominion Dog Training with one goal in mind — to provide committed dog owners with effective training tools and empower them to make life with their dogs easier and more rewarding.
