Nice to meet you! I'm Rose, the human creator of Find Focus First™ program and long time pet and working dog trainer- over 30 years and counting.
I run a full time, six figure dog training company, Cold Creek Dog Training in Pennsylvania, USA. So 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. I've run my dog training business in USA and Canada and I'm making them available ONLINE now too so our concepts can be available to everyone.
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 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 1980's. before cell phones and GPS’s! (yes I am really that old! :)
I’m a federally certified Urban Search and Rescue Canine Search Specialist, Evaluator and Mentor for over 22 years. We work with search dogs in some of the most highly distracting environments in the world saving 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. And just recently SuperPower Dogs (Imax) released in 2019.
My real accomplishment though, is a lifetime of work with dogs and people just like you.
