I can categorically recommend Robert Cabral as the best trainer of shelter animals I’ve had the privilege to work with. Robert has a unique understanding of canine behavior. His innovative and successful approach is one of the reason that our euthanasia has declined each and every year.Brenda Barnette GM, LA Animal Services
Dog Training with Robert
Robert’s experience training dogs includes most every breed and temperament. He has instructed, trained and rehabilitated dogs from shelters nationwide giving them their only chance at adoption.
He has trained and titled competitive obedience, protection and sport dogs and trained loving family pets in his private dog training business in Malibu, California.
I refer him regularly as a trainer with amazing “dog” intuition and someone who can get the job done. But don’t be fooled, if there is work to be done by the owner, he doesn’t pull the punches.
He is straight forward and honest and I trust him.
He is truly man’s man’s best friend. Thank you Robert for all you do and giving me hope for our canine friends.

Thank you sincerely Robert for your training session and continued advice on Dora and Burton. It is hard to believe that after just one month of first meeting with you, the tremendous progress Dora and Burton have made. They are now able to play together outside like bulldogs should and are on their way to becoming great friends. In fact, they even played together in the house tonight while Burton was allowed time out of his crate. It is hard to believe that they literally were trying to attack each other instantly if even near one another other a month ago.

Thanks to Robert Cabral and his Black Belt Dog Training, our beautiful shelter dog has a chance of a new life with his forever home.
“Sparky” required immediate assessment and correction for aggressive fear behaviors, which were discovered by Robert upon his first visit to our home.
Saving one dog at a time is a blessing, especially since the dog saved is our beloved mutt. Without Robert’s intervention, we doubt that “Sparky” would have survived, so we cannot recommend Robert’s methods enough. Kudos to Robert.

No one ever did for an animal and for myself what he has done, he’s made me understand the why’s and the very nature of dogs. He is a stand alone act because he produces a level of skill & competence that is rare in any field. Because he has such a deep and spiritual understanding of animals, he gets results quickly. Robert has made training fun for me and for my Rosie and I now look forward to our training time together. Rosie is happier and safer today because Robert set us on the right path. I’m so grateful to Robert for opening up another world of pleasure for us.

Robert Cabral is the Author of Three Books
Mastering the Art of Success was written while Robert was teaching traditional martial arts. It focuses on the ideals of success and how to achieve them.
The book is a compilation of short chapters making it easily readable and very informative.
Topics include; dealing with stress, negotiations that apply to both personal and business situations as well as defining what it means to be successful.
Selling Used Dogs is based on Robert’s extensive experience in saving shelter dogs and the creative methods he used to successfully marketing them for adoption.
The book contains hands-on steps including how to make You Tube videos, photography tips, posting to Facebook and much more.
All of the methods in this book have proven successful in saving the lives of shelter dogs.
Desperate Dogs Determined Measures was written for one single reason. Someone commented to Robert, “If I had your skills, I would train and save dogs all day long.” This inspired Robert to write about the steps to his success in training, assessing and working with shelter dogs. The book is a no-nonsense guide to helping save the dogs at the greatest risk in our nation’s shelters. Many people consider it a “Bible” for those wishing to save more dogs from shelters.
