I can't say enough good things about Calm on Command K9 or their owners/trainers, RJ and Rose. Fitch is a 2 1/2 yo Rottweiler. She belonged to my son, who died suddenly, leaving Fitch without an owner, a friend (another Rottie owned by my son - rehomed with my daughter) and a home. She had fear aggression. She is heading to boot camp tomorrow, but RJ and Rose have successfully introduced themselves to Fitch (never thought that would happen) and were essential in helping me get her to a vet to be spayed. Check out the videos on their Instagram page! I'm convinced that the boot camp training will morph Fitch into the wonderful dog she is capable of being and will help her transition to a forever family!

My Larry is an Akita. Larry could not interact with any other dogs or any person. It was really difficult. He could not go to the groomers, we could not leave him with anyone and go on vacation. We have tried several dog training classes and one on one training, nothing has worked. CHOOSE RJ…RJ has changed our lives. I am able to watch the trainings life, I can see the progress that Larry is making. I wish I found RJ sooner. Thank you so much. Thank you for loving Larry. I see the hugs and kisses you give Larry. I see how Larry respond to you. "People get a dog, because they want a friend. People hire a dog trainer, because they don't want their friend to be an asshole.” I love you and your amazing team

We sent our dog Roger to Calm on Command’s four week bootcamp and have seen a complete transformation in our dog's behavior. Before, our dog was aggressive, and out of control on walks, now walks are relaxed and enjoyable. Rosie and Rj taught us how to communicate with our dog and curb his unruly behavior. They are amazing people who are truly dedicated to changing the lives of the people and dogs they work with. Baltimore is lucky to have them. They are definitely the best trainers you will find. Thank you, Rosie and Rj!

We feel so lucky to have found Rj and Rosie. They are knowledgeable, kind, and passionate about what they do. I reached out to them after working with two other trainers. I was struggling with my dogs reactivity to other dogs and people while on leash. She was also very shy around new people. We sent Ollie to bootcamp and she came back a new dog! She has no reactivity and has become much more confident around new people. We get compliments all the time about her obedience. She has definitely mastered being calm on command. You absolutely will not find better trainers than Rosie and Rj.

Best dog trainers in Baltimore! Rosie helped me work through some major behavioral issues with my dog Winston. He was nipping my son and was reactive to other dogs on leash. Rosie taught me how to implement structure in the home and how to communicate with my dog properly. So thankful for all the support I have received and continue to receive.

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

    Training dogs has been my obsession since I was a kid. I lost a dog early in life because he wasn’t trained. I’ve got over 25 years of experience actually working with dogs and their humans. I’m very well known in Phoenix Arizona for creating Zenergy Dog Training with my partner. We were voted best dog trainer in Phoenix for 2019 and voted in the top 5 for 2018. In Phoenix I’m famous for rehabilitating severe canine behaviors. I’m well known as the last stop for clients who have tried several unsuccessful trainers. My credentials are my previous clients. Check out my 5 star rating on my Yelp listing for Zenergy Dog Training to see how I’ve helped other people and dogs. You’ll see my name in every review. Also check out my Google listing for Zenergy Dog Training. I’ve never met a dog a I couldn’t help. Any age. Any breed. Any size. Any problem. The dogs are the easier part. Helping humans be the leaders their dog needs them to be is the bigger challenge. Dog training is a team sport. We all need to be on the same page to achieve dramatic lasting results.
