Meet the Trainer

Robyn E. Lucier, B.S., ABCDT, CPDT-KA

My Story...

My name is Robyn Lucier and I come from a small town in central Massachusetts.  I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, where I earned a B.S. Degree in Psychology with a focus on learning theory and behavior modification.

I spent most of my working years as an Accounting Clerk but always dreamed of someday owning my own business.  

My interest in dog training began when I took my Shetland Sheepdog to puppy kindergarten where she earned her AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction. I enjoyed the training so much that I began to consider a career as a professional dog trainer.

In 2011 I enrolled in a year-long course of study at Animal Behavior College (ABC).  As part of my studies I participated in the “Students Saving Lives” program by volunteering at a local animal shelter.  It was a valuable opportunity to practice my skills on a wide variety of dogs, helping them to be better mannered and increase their chances of being adopted. In July of 2012 I graduated from ABC with honors, earning a certificate as a Dog Obedience Instructor.  I then started my business as a professional dog trainer.

In 2016 I earned the Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) designation by successfully meeting the high qualifying standards of the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. For more information about the certification and it’s requirements, please visit www.ccpdt.org.

Currently I am a Professional Premium Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and an authorized instructor of the Canine Life and Social Skills program (C.LA.S.S.).  I spend my free time furthering my education, attending seminars, and spending quality time with my husband and my 3 dogs
