Nice to meet you! I'm Rose, the human creator of the Find Focus First™ program
and long-time pet
and working dog trainer-
over 30 years and counting.
I created and run a full-time, six-figure dog training company, Cold Creek Dog Training on the east coast based in Pennsylvania, USA along with my three amazing trainers Carolyn, Julie, and Shane and with Natalie in Ontario Canada.
I'm out there every day training people and dogs just like you. I've had 1,000's of people and dogs change their lives by completing my courses over many years. Now I'm making these programs and concepts available ONLINE so we can help frustrated owners everywhere! These are REAL courses created by "me" a real dog trainer- they are simple easy to follow and not a lot of hype. We get to the point and get you started training right away :)
I've seen it all between my many dogs and client's dogs over the years. I can honestly say the number one thing people constantly struggle with on ALL levels is the inability to get their dog's attention.
I have a passion for helping people and have been a k9 volunteer in Search & Rescue since the 1980s.... before cell phones and GPS’s!
(yes, I am really that old! :)
I share all this because I'd like you to know the level of experience and passion that I come from in helping people (and dogs) just like you. So that you can know, I'm a real person not one of the hype online dog course trainers you see pop up in ads everywhere these days.
I’m also a federally certified Urban Search and Rescue Canine Search Specialist, Evaluator, and Mentor for over 23 years. These search dogs work in some of the most intense, highly-distracting environments in the world.
Our mission is to save trapped or buried people.
I've appeared on Today's Show with my K9 Logan after working the first two weeks of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Animal Planet's Hero Dogs of 9/11 on the 10 year anniversary.
Dog Files Hero Dogs of September 11th
And just recently SuperPower Dogs (Imax) released in 2019.
I've been an author for the Emmitsburg New Journal in Maryland USA
My real accomplishment though,
is a lifetime of work with dogs and people just like you.
