Dog Training Seminar By One of America’s Best Trainers Program to Benefit Non-profit Supporting Disabled Veterans

Air Force Colonel Robert Milner (retired), one of America’s top trainers of special purpose working dogs, will be leading a two-day training seminar February 29 and March 1, 2020, at the Courtyard by Marriott in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Col. Milner’s two-day training seminar will focus on the latest discoveries in the evolving science behind dog training which allows the training to be more effective, less stressful, and achieve more consistent and reliable results regardless of the trainers’ previous experience.

To achieve the kind of results individuals want to achieve with their dog, Col. Milner will focus much of the program on training the trainers. Milner’s philosophy is “There are no bad dogs, just bad trainers.” The seminar’s goal is to help dog owners become great trainers by becoming aware of the affect their individual behavior has on reinforcing their dog’s training and conditioning. By equipping the owners with positive training and conditioning skills, both owners and their dogs will be able to communicate more effectively and work seamlessly as partners at work, play, and home.

Registration is $150 per attendee and benefits the non-profit Service Dogs of Distinction, which provides highly trained specialty dogs to meet the individual physical needs of disabled veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD. Deadline for registration is February 22nd. Registration may be reserved and paid for through the donate button on or by calling Don Gardner at 501-730-3928.

About the company:

Service Dogs of Distinction began with dog trainers wanting to use their passion for service dogs to make a difference in the lives of veterans suffering from PTSD.

SDOD’s approach is to understand the need of the veteran, then find and train a dog that can best meet their needs. Following their high standards of evaluation, dogs are procured from shelters and from individuals who are looking to re-home young dogs with an adaptable demeanor and gentle breed-specific traits. Then, the veteran/dog teams work together until they are sufficiently trained and able to pass a public access test.

Service Dogs of Distinction operates solely as a 501(c)(3) non-profit and relies on donations and corporate sponsorships to provide dog acquisition, training, annual costs of pet ownership, and to give the service dogs to veterans in need at no cost to the veteran.
