Introduction: Dog training is more than working on your pet's behavior. It's just as much about you - the owner. I will make sure you understand what your role is since you will be the real trainer! I always make it positive and fun. I am bilingual (Spanish and English). What makes my service different? I am a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer and FitPAWS Master Trainer. Many of the clients I work with have pets that can benefit from better conditioning and general fitness. Whether it's a dog that needs to shed a few pounds to take longer walks, an athlete competing in agility or other sports, a senior dog with arthritis that needs mobility, or simply a healthier pet; in addition to basic dog obedience, K9 Fitness Lab provides conditioning and fitness training. I teach simple exercises (some with equipment) to create more focus and balance for your dog. What's more is that this type of work also exercises their minds! The result is a tired (read relaxed) pet! You don't need the dog to walk miles to get the benefits of a good, sound exercise plan. A fit dog will live a longer, more comfortable life. I work with dogs of all ages, and I especially enjoy seeing our senior dogs become more mobile! I especially enjoy puppy training. I teach basic manners and help socialize your puppy so that you have a well behaved new friend you can take anywhere. You won't worry about having an out of control dog when friends and family come to visit. They will be impressed on how well YOU trained your pup! Most of the clients I work with are looking for their dogs to have good manners and be obedient. It's never too early or too late to achieve that with your canine companion. I enjoy seeing the transformation in the dogs when the clients do their homework and realize it is within their power to have a well-behaved dog (It's not my magic touch :)). Another great enjoyment comes from designing an exercise program for my clients' dogs. Fitness is not just for humans! A fit and conditioned dog is happier, healthier, and will live longer. And it doesn't take hours at the gym! We have simple programs and inexpensive equipment that when used 4 times a week for 15 minutes will create dramatic changes.

Dog training has been going very well so far. My dog has been responding nicely to it. She no longer jumps on us when we enter our house which was one of the main issues we were having. I would highly recommend k9 fitness lab! Thank you!

K-9 Fitness Lab trainer Rosie came to our home and made fast friends with our dog! We have seen much improvement in just two sessions. He is calmer, nipping less and learned new commands. Our trainer is very knowledgeable and we will continue to employ her until our dog is a well behaved member of the family. Highly recommend K-9 Fitness Lab

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. Sincerely, Larry and Dava Berezin

Details: 1 dog • 0 - 1 years old • Extra Small (1 - 15 lbs) • General obedience training • Private dog training lessons • The dog trainer travels to me

Thanks Rachel! It's a pleasure working with you and Chris. Zero is a great pup. We'll work hard to manage all of that exuberance!

Update 4/26/2017! 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! 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.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Kelly! I thoroughly enjoy working with you and Fiona. I look forward to the next time! Let's get her to love the kayak!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My dog training pricing is customized to your needs. Puppy packages range from $400 -$500 based on your goals and what the pup already knows. For particular issues with dogs of any age, my standard rate is $85/hour with a 10% discount for 5 or more sessions.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will meet with a new customer and their pet to evaluate their needs. What does your dog do? What would like them to do? This evaluation is free and phone consultations are encouraged. Then we will come up with a customized training plan. No two pets are the same. We will work together for as long or as short a time as needed to give us the desired result. For pet sitting, I will meet and greet, get all of the basic information, and come up with a schedule that suits the customer.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have taught basic obedience and basic agility in group settings for my dog club (Tailwaggers Learning Center) for the past ten years. I have also worked with private clients on conditioning and training. Years ago I worked as a veterinary assistant and I have a Bachelors Degree in Animal Sciences. I obtained my credential of Certified Canine Fitness Trainer through the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. I am also certified through Pet Tech in pet first aid and care.
