Meet The Team

Meet Rob Barlow

Rob has always felt a strong bond with his dog companions as he was growing up.  Rob has trained all his family dogs with ease and confidence, even as a young child.  Rob got into K9 competitive sports in 2006 by joining a Schutzhund Club where he learned skills in how to train various dog breeds in tracking, obedience, and protection. 

In 2006, Rob joined the Utah National Guard and was deployed to Iraq in 2010.  While deployed Rob was able to work with some of the Military K9's who were on the same base.

After Rob returned home from Iraq, he started his own K9 sports club, which trained dogs for Protection Sports Association (PSA) in Texas.  Rob helped many people and their dogs accomplish titles in PSA from 2012 till 2015. He is also the President, Training Director and Director of Decoys for Salt City Hellhounds PSA Club, which trains dogs to compete in PSA, French Ring and Mondio Ring.

Rob loves working with different breeds and looks forward in helping you obtain your goals with your family pet or future competition dog.
