Gordon Roberts Jr M.Ed--UKC-Ultimate Air Dog Judge-Dock Diving Instructor-K9 Swim Instructor, Barn Hunt Judge (RET)

Once a Coach - always a coach! Coach Gordon "Rob" Roberts is a well known and talented head football coach, weightlifting coach and seminar presenter for the past 30 years. Coach was the Florida State Weightlifting Director for 6 years. 

Rob was honored to be picked as one of the National Barn Hunt Judges in 2016. He was a highly experienced, and sought after Barn Hunt Seminar Presenter. Rob has now retired from the Rats & Hay and has turned his energies toward obedience training and Dock Diving. HIs ability to teach skills in a sequential fashion has earned him invitations from places such as Bass Pro Shop to present Dock diving as a sport that is fun for people and their dogs of all ages.

We are fortunate to have Rob as the Head Dock Diving Instructor  and Basic Obedience instructor where he teaches "manners" obedience to handlers and their dogs at  Central Florida Dog Sports. He is  a certified UKC & Ultimate Air Dog  Dock diving Judge,  a K9 Swim Instructor,  an active member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers ( APDT)  and  believes that the best results are seen through the use of positive reinforcement.
