Dogs are our passion. No matter what issue you have or what service you would like us to provide for you and your dog, we are here to help.
Welcome to ProDog Services. I'm Rob Casey, CPDT-KA, Owner, Trainer and Behavioral Consultant. Dogs have been a part of my life since childhood and the bonds I have formed with these dogs have created the passion I have for working with them.
A little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Bristol, CT where I currently live. I am a degreed mechanical engineer and own a plastics manufacturing and engineering business in New Britain, CT. The discipline, structure and detail orientation found in engineering can easily be compared to what is required in canine training. My current business allows me a flexible schedule to pursue my passion of canine training and behavior modification and meet privately with clients at nearly any convenient time.
I am a Certified Trainer through the CCPDT (Certificaton Council for Professional Dog Trainers). The CCPDT is the only national certification board for professional dog trainers. They have been in existence since 2001 and their program is recognized throughout the industry as the foremost certification for dog trainers. You can visit their website by clicking on the CPDT-KA link below.
Pictured with me above are Lily (Papillon/Pomeranian), Laney (Beagle) and Aspen (Australian Shepherd). All are adopted. Lily was a private adoption who simply needed a new home and Laney and Aspen are both shelter rescues who's fates were otherwise uncertain. They are all amazing dogs.
I am a passionate advocate of canine adoption and have helped many clients realize the phenomenal potential of their adopted dog. I dedicate all my volunteer efforts with the most progressive, forward thinking and effective pet rescue organization in Connecticut, Our Companions Domestic Animal Sanctuary. Please click on their link below to learn more about their amazing rescue efforts and programs.
Laney was adopted by my youngest daughter from a shelter in Florida at the age of 3. She had been through 2 homes in her first three years of life and therefore hadn't been provided the stable environment dogs so much need. She came to us with some pretty serious issues such as; Food Aggression, Possessiveness (of toys and places), No walking manners at all, Jumping on people, and very serious Separation Anxiety. She is now one of the best behaved Beagles you could ever meet. You can witness some of her exceptional behavior on our "Photos and Video Gallery" page.
Lily came to us at the age of 6 months and has brought us boundless joy ever since. Papillons and also Pomeranians can have a reputation for being very possessive of their owners and not very friendly to other people, especially children. Lily is precisely the opposite. She is absolutely happiest when meeting other people, especially children. She has convinced more than one dog fearful child that dogs are something that can bring joy into your life. She has simply been a joy to train. Being very Non-Food motivated but craving praise and affection, she has proven to be a perfect example of how praise can be just as good as prime rib to some dogs. You can see some of Lily's exceptional behavior in the "Photo and Video" section also.
We adopted Aspen in October of 2009. She came to us from Arkansas where her foster Mom had found her in a shelter. She had been relinquished by her owner stating that he was tired of her escaping from his yard. Aspen and I bonded immediately and she is one of the best behaved dogs you could ever meet. She is fantastically trainable, happy, playful, calm and a joy to everyone she meets. A perfect example of a dog that simply needed the right environment and training to blossom into the magnificent companion she is.
We met Clutch (Beagle / Bassett mix) while volunteering at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. Clutch had spent a year in a North Carolina shelter before coming to Best Friends. He then spent 6 months undergoing heartworm treatments at Best Friends. Now he is finally, and permanently, with us. We flew him into Orlando, Florida while there on vacation and spent some time with him, Lily and Aspen before traveling home to Connecticut. With the exercise, structure, and love provided in our home, he is fitting in just fine and is able to truly relax.
