The relationship you have with your dog should be based on respect and love: not fear, pain, or intimidation.
~ Robin Sockness, Professional Dog Trainer
Robin Sockness, a former resident of Fayette County for 20 years, now residing in Sharpsburg (Coweta County), has been working with animals her entire life. She knew from childhood that she had a natural attraction to dogs and the psychology of how they operate and relate to the world. She grew up in a home where her parents both rescued dozens of dogs, rehabilitated them and made them wonderful family pets. She is an active volunteer with JCCARE, a Japanese Chin Rescue Group and CAREing Paws, a therapy dog organization. She empowers people to create a happy, healthy relationship with their dogs. Robin teaches classes and provides private consultations which teach dog owners how to implement a behavior modification program suited for their specific needs based on the science of how dogs learn. Robin and her husband have three dogs: KaeJae, a Jack Russell terrier mix, Katie and KiKu, who are Japanese Chins and are registered therapy dogs. Robin and the girls are active volunteers with CAREing Paws, a statewide group of registered pet therapy teams.
