About the Trainer

“It is up to us dog owners to take the time to get educated and make the effort to spend quality time getting to know our dog companions through practice and patience and persistence. Our knowledge, experience and time developing a personal relationship with our dogs, through training, will build the trust that is needed for success. With a step-by-step approach, people can learn simple, positive, safe methods to communicate with their dogs in a way in which dogs understand.” Mr. BOB STAPLES

Bob Staples, President, Bob’s Pet Stop Inc.

I’m a personal trainer and a dog lover who is very passionate about helping people with their adult dogs, puppies, rescues, adopted dogs. As a trained professional with over 40 years of full-time experience in the dog training industry, my goal is to teach dog owners what is best for you and your dog. I’ve worked with thousands of people over the years from young families to senior citizens, handicapped and clients with special needs with aggressive dogs who need a second chance. People want to have a sense of control over their dogs and enjoy the pleasure of having a well-behaved dog that they can love!!


Since 1982, dog owners have been calling on Mr. Bob Staples, President of Bob’s Pet Stop, Inc., for assistance with their dog training concerns (a former competitor in the AKC obedience ring, as well as, a Schutzhund training participant). Bob’s years of professional experience servicing the public as a full time trainer has given him the ability to understand the real and practical needs of dog owners. As an owner/operator of a dog & cat pet care facility in East Montgomery County area for over 15 years, he offered services such as grooming, in-home training, group classes, private lessons, retail sales, behavior consulting and diagnosing of canine fear and aggression disorders. Through years of problem solving, Bob has also been involved with dogs for the deaf, therapy, companion dog training and speaking engagements at canine educational seminars. His services have been requested at rescue and service dog organizations, veterinary hospitals, grooming/kennel shops, besides child safety assemblies in schools. His successful therapy training program was featured on Fox News with Dr. Brian McDonough and his In-Home Training Programs were the focus of a series of broadcasts on Good Day Philadelphia.
