“Robert Forto is an excellent trainer of dogs and people – his clients know that. But what is less known is the dynamic speaker. Every time I think about Robert the public speaker I remember the first time I met him at Your Brand Radio. Espressole Caffe was a packed house when he approached the microphone with confidence. The moment he spoke changed the culture in the room. To the person, he had a captivated audience just from the professional and deliberate tone in his voice. I have seen nothing like it! Keep Robert in mind to speak at your function about dogs, training, running business or producing valuable content like radio shows!”

Run With Poodles is the title of Robert’s first book. It is a phrase that he coined several years ago when he first started thinking about running the Iditarod.
