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.

Here's how!

Find Focus First™


  • Introduction video the THEORY of how and why this works so well for any dog of any age.

  • Simple step by step instruction guide of "how to do it" you can follow it online or use as a PDF

  • Checklist and Homework Guide for steps to follow to track your success.

  • Best of all- instructional video showing a going through this process for the first time and the end result of how it all comes together. 


  • No special extra items needed or fancy training devices or gimmicks. You have all you need at home already to get started today!

  • This is a natural concept where your dog makes choices- you reward the right choices…and paying attention to you is the right choice.

  • Paying attention is a Learned skill- and it's never taught naturally till NOW. Most trainers will teach you "Watch" or "Look" - this takes place on a level BEFORE that.

  • You’ll get a dog who is responsive to you- because he’s learned how to really connect with you even when there are distractions! 

  • No more being embarrassed and frustrated by a dog who acts like you're not there when you call him.

When I started pet dog training after years of working with Police and Search and Rescue Dogs, I found lack of attention was the missing link in learning!

I modified how we worked with these high level performance dogs into simple steps everyone can follow at home for their pet dogs.

So here it is online, the same program we've taught for YEARS to thousands of private clients- and how we LIVE with our SAR dogs... the Find Focus First™.


There really is a way to have your dog listen the first time. 

There is a skill he can learn that will make him REALLY want to connect with you.

You CAN get attention every time, no matter what's going on. 

You can learn how to teach this, WITHOUT obedience commands like WATCH or LOOK.

....Our program will show you how to do it all this.

Rose B

Not your average trainer! She has real world, professional,working dog experience plus all of the credentials for pet training. Wonderful classes and an invaluable resource.

Teresa M

I'm about half way through Cold Creek's "challenging dog" training with my sweet lab-pit rescue Twix. We're both learning how to act in stressful situations. Rose is an excellent instructor for us because of her kind patience and experience-based knowledge of dog behavior (and human behavior, too!!). Twix has improved quite a bit in 5 sessions and I've learned how to make her feel less stressed and less reactive. I would recommend Rose to anyone who needs to zoom in on challenging dog behavior. Aside from the benefits of the classes, we're having fun.

Sue R

I found Rose and Cold Creek Dog Training in May of 2016. I knew I was in over my head with my boy's aggression issues. Rose met with us and Gus, at the end of the meeting we a plan in place to work through his fear issues. It is so rewarding to walk down the street and have people stop and say and how remarkably he has grown. You see before he would be an 18# Cujo to any person or dog he saw. He has gained so much confidence in himself and learned to trust that the big people will protect him. This is all because of what Rose has so patiently taught us and continues to work on with us through her ongoing group classes. Thank you Rose and Cold Creek Dog Training, we are forever indebted to you for helping Gus become the relaxed calm boy he is today.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I know this will work for my dog?

Because all dogs of any breeds or ages work on the same genetic coding needed to eat and survive. The Find Focus First™ program taps into that natural instinct. You the owner becomes the bearer of great food rewards (in exchange for the dogs attention)

Is my dog too old for this training?

Never! The same concept of eating and being motivated by food works at any age whether young or old!

Will this work for a little puppy?

Yes! Since neuro pathways are not formed as much yet it's especially easy for a puppy. You get to set up the "paths" or impressions you want your pup to follow right from the start without needing to break bad habits.

How long is the program- how much time will it take to complete?

The program can be read and watched in about 2 hours. The real fun is going out to DO IT! Many dogs complete the phases of attention in one session. Many dogs will need to spread it out over several days to work around really high distractions. It's always better to go SLOW and build- rather than pushing the dog too fast. My expression is- "Don't throw them in the deep end of the pool till you show them how to swim!"

How long do I have access to the program?

You'll have lifetime access to the program. If we change or add material- you'll have access to any upgraded versions too without any extra costs.

Do I need any computer skills to do this?

No, not at all- all you need to do is click to watch videos and follow the written material. We've set it up so it's easy to use from your phone so you can access the program when you are out and around.

Will this help if my dog is aggressive?

It really can help! While this is explicitly not a program for reactive or aggressive dogs. One of the FIRST foundation steps we teach with dog aggression is this focus concept. When dog is able to pay attention to YOU- he is less attentive to the stressy things in world around him... He relaxes... and that makes him less reactive!

Find Focus First™ is perfect for:

People Who Love Their Pets

For people who really love their pets but need a way to connect to more attention without using harsh methods.

For people who've tried traditional training that didn't quite work.

For ANY people with super busy lifestyles that are too busy to work with their dog at formal training once a week. This is a "live it all the time" concept!

For people who don't want a robot dog, just a dog who will listen when they need him to.

Rescue & Shelter Volunteers

For people who work with troubled dogs every day.

For people who work with dogs who have tragic pasts they need to overcome.

For people with dogs who need help getting over rehomings and sudden life changes like illness, death or divorce

For people with a worried dog that needs help to relax and not stress about the world around them.

Working Dog Professionals

For people who compete in any dog sport venues like Agility, Obedience, Dock Diving, Flyball, or Fast Cat

For people who compete in IPO or Field Dog Trial who need an edge for higher scores as the competition gets more intense

For people who volunteer in Search and Rescue and want the absolute best their dog can be in the worst of situations

For professionals who need an edge in creating focus in their dogs before they are sent out on the street to do their life threatening K9 jobs

Review: Maria D

5yo Border/Lab x I adopted when she was 6mos old.. My prev trainer moved & I had been hit & miss with working my dog. Our biggest issue is dog reactiveness but underlining that was a discipline/training issue.. Rose's method, while not what I was anticipating, was a much different approach to anything I'd done w any of my dogs to this point; and IT WORKED for Beauty! We, with Rose's advice after our free consult/mini lesson, signed up for the Challenging Dog session.. Six months later or so finds Beauty & my relationship MUCH improved for both of us! It's not just about teaching yourself how to interact with your dog, it's more a partnership. Rose has vast knowledge on behavioral issues & real time training & working w her own dogs in FEMA search/rescue.. she has brought her knowledge to a level that's easy to understand & incorporate in every day living.. What's even better, just because your session may be over doesn't mean Rose isn't there to answer any questions/issues we have but will help whenever it's necessary to get over a rough patch.. Better yet still!, are her group sessions where ALL her clients & their hoomans come together for various outings.. you never know how it's going to end up but it's a great opportunity to watch, listen & learn with other like minded individuals who want the best of their Canine companions.. Give Rose a call, be Open minded & Know you only get out of any training with what you put into it. You'll be amazed

Imagine If.....

-----Imagine where you could be in just a few hours after watching this program and teaching your dog how to pay attention- 

-----Imagine if you could call your dog's name, no matter what was going on and he would actually look at you and respond-

.....This really can be you once you put these concepts into place. 

.....You’ll be able to walk with your dog an have him pay attention to you.

.....Most importantly have him respond when you really need it- Even if there is a squirrel!

Now is the time to get started-

...take action NOW to get better focus TODAY!

...Make better focus a reality for you AND your dog now!

Testimonials for Cold Creek Dog Training

creators of Find Focus First

Sharon S.

I would highly recommend Cold Creek dog training. When I brought my beagle, I couldn't walk him because he was so distracted and would pull on the leash to the point of choking himself. She gave me the tools and knowledge to keep his focus on me and now walks are fun and no longer the stressful mess they used to be!

Kathy B.

Due to the quarantine, we’ve been learning virtually. Roseann helped make it very easy and we’ve learned a lot! ...Thank you thank you! Everything you’re teaching us makes sense and is easily put into practice!

Cherie G.

Rose is amazing!!! Our rescue (lab) was a timid boy with zero training when we got him.... with her help he has become a well mannered, gentle on the leash good listener! He even goes into his “house” without any problems now!!
