She's also certified dogs in narcotics and explosives detection. Robin responds to requests by various law enforcement agencies in and around the state of Iowa to aid in search management and to resolve cases with her canines. Through Iowa K9 Detection she works various venues including stadiums, amusement parks, and concert venues.

In 2006 she founded the Paws of Life Foundation, which was dedicated to the education and training of search and rescue (SAR) working dog handlers. Its online classes have served handlers throughout the United States and various other countries.


Since 2008, Robin has been certifying search dogs for various national organizations including the National Association for Search and Rescue (NASAR), Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States (SARDUS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Alliance of Emergency Response Instructors and Examiners (AERIE).

The K9Sensus Foundation, formerly the Paws of Life Foundation, has expanded its reach to focus on all working dogs, coaching the human end of the leash to better serve and collaborate with our canine partners. Robin instructs throughout the nation in diverse specialties, using behavior analytical principals that work on all animals, no matter the language they speak. By coaching the trainer/handler, she provides students with a deeper understanding of the behaviors they are trying to achieve and the procedures to achieve them.
