what our Happy clients say:

Bonnie - a Puerto Rico rescue

Bonnie was very high strung and bit every hand within a foot of her! She had no impulse control and was pretty bad on a leash.  

 "Our pup Bonnie is already calmer and more behaved with just one training session with Rosie.  Bonnie loves practicing what she has learned so far.  We can't wait for our next training session."

Harley - Leash Walking challenge

"Rosie came to our home and tailored a program to fit our needs in our community. She was awesome and trained us well! She instructed on leash walking and socializing our dog within the community. Our Harley is doing lots of tricks and more enjoyable walking him around on the leash. We will continue to have Rosie come for more advanced training soon."

Cash - Rambunctious Adolescent Labrador 

"Rosie did an excellent job with our dog Cash. You can tell she's been around dogs her whole life as cash immediately warmed up to her and her soft touch.  After a brief session I felt like we had our dog back.  Her knowledge and expertise that she shared with us was like nothing we'd heard before and believe me we've read plenty.  I'd recommend her to help with all your dog needs.  She's amazing."

~Chris H.

Boomer - Recovering from ACL surgery

"Rosie has been a very valuable asset for my dog's rehab from ACL surgery!  She responded to my needs quickly and was very focused on my dog and his needs to get his muscles re-trained and strengthened.  With her help we have Boomer healing extremely well 6 weeks post surgery.  She is wonderful and very knowledgeable about fitness needs of our furry friends!  I recommend her highly."

~Cathy I.

Riley - General training

"For many years I have been witness to Rosie's handling of dogs, be it her own or others.  She is fearless about establishing positive relationships, discipline and encouragement at all times to the dogs.  She creates an energy that is necessary and works when managing her animals."

Mia - Mini Aussie basic training and agility

"Best trainer ever!!!! My puppy and I had so much fun with today's training!!! We're learning so many new things and at the same time having a blast!!! Never thought dog training could be this much fun! "

Sunny - Puppy Training Package

"5-Stars aren't enough.  Rosie is simply wonderful. She has exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds.   This is our first puppy and we wanted to work with an experienced, professional trainer. We are thrilled we found Rosie on Thumbtack.  She has been totally responsive in answering our questions or addressing our challenges. Her demeanor with our dog, Sunny, is super. Sunny immediately responded to Rosie and has made great progress in her in training.  If you're looking for a trainer who has a genuine love for dogs, is professional, responsive and on time or early every time, Rosie is the trainer for you."

~Larry and Dava B.

Fiona - Fearful leash puller

"Rosie is great! We've only had one session so far, but will be scheduling more. I have a very smart, active, and skittish pup that just turned one. She is well behaved, house trained, and knows her basic commands, but she needs more. Rosie was so great with my Fiona. I feel like she understood her personality and what I was looking for in training. We have homework and Fiona is learning fast. Highly recommended for her experience, knowledge and her way with my dog.

Update! Rosie continues to be great! We had a follow up session and it was great. Fiona remembered her and loved seeing her again. We got a new harness that works much better for us on walks and she is pulling much less thanks to Rosie's guidance. Continue to highly recommend Rosie!"
