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 BerezinFeb 9, 2018Verified

Thanks Becky! You and your puppy are a joy to work with.
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.Jan 10, 2017VerifiedK9 Fitness Lab's reply
Harley is a superstar! Loved working with you and I look forward to more fun!
- 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 $250 - $400 based on your goals and what the pup already knows. For particular issues with dogs of any age, my standard rate is $60/hour with a 15% 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.
