Our Training Style is Different


Some trainers get awfully carried away with the amount of commands they aim to teach. We don’t find that teaching your dog the dictionary is any more effective than a few simple, all-encompassing commands that directly affect a dog’s behavior.

Click through the slides to see what we teach:


A dog with a skill-set that allows them to focus and function in the face of distraction is a dog with good manners. “Jumping on people”, “Gets so excited”, or “Runs out the door” are not problems that exist in a vacuum. They are problems that we fix with a methodical and proven curriculum.


A dog that’s focused on you can’t be focused on the things that get them into trouble. Focusing on you is a responsibility that gives them purpose and a “job” while keeping them safe.



Sit on their tail, (Lay) Down on their belly, Stay right where they are until you release them the first time you ask, every time you ask.
We exercise these commands in situations that teach your dog to handle stress constructively. They’ll learn to trust you and trust themselves. Coping with stress is the answer to many problems and the only route to a “super-dog”.



Loose leash walking and eventually no-leash walking. Being freely at your side, aware of you and following your lead, yet enjoying their stroll.




Come to you on command. Every time. No matter if they’re chasing ducks, playing with their best doggie-friend, or being pet on by the ice cream man…they will return to your side, instantly.


Our Mission

Rosie Dane Dog Training was created in the hope that I can give everyone the opportunity to own a dog as great as my own. I know from dog after dog that I have personally owned and trained that any dog can be the perfect dog if you handle, treat, and train them a certain way. No matter the temperament, no matter the pre-existing problems, any dog can be taught to behave the way you want them to.1185200_493231827421387_840530252_n

We use time-tested training methods to produce dogs that are happy, reliable, calm, and stable. We draw from various methodologies to create a curriculum that truly produces the ultimate all-around companion animal. Through us you’ll achieve any amount of control you envision and overcome any issue you’re facing. We look forward to working with you!

Why Will Our Curriculum Work For You?

90 minute class sessions in real-world scenarios achieve results typically unheard of. These classes aren’t like what you see at a pet store. EVERYONE has control over their dog and we have REAL solutions to REAL problems.
We find that training in the real world prepares you for living in the real world.
Training you to20151025_125809 train your dog gives you the tools to build the dog of your dreams and it allows you to make repairs down the road. Things fall apart over time and those things need to be fixed and it’s important that you have the tools if that time comes.
We specialize in “after training”. We train because living with a trained dog is fun. Our process is short, it’s sweet, and it works.
We think our curriculum is the best of all worlds. We emphasize reliable training in reliable situations with proven methods. Check out the features listed here to see how we stack up to the competition.

Our Take: The benefit of a group class is the distraction it provides. Different people and different dogs allow your dog to get used to the various stimuli that your training must hold up in front of. 90 minutes gives us ample time to cover the lesson and handle each dog individually. We can provide individual instruction to each handler, then critique those crucial first attempts at the exercise. There’s time to use the other members of class as distractions

Our take: The benefit of a private lesson is to have someone closely hold your hand throughout the training. Whether you couldn’t make a certain week’s class, need additional help with an aspect of handling, or want to work on something outside the scope of the curriculum, we offer private lessons to our group class students.
Our take: Our curriculum involves an orientation, 8 group lessons, and graduation. At the end, over 80% of students are able to obtain both their Canine Good Citizen certificate and pass the AKC Novice Obedience requirements. Just over 2 months of work and you’ll get every tool you’ll need to develop a complete dog. Training a dog doesn’t happen overnight. It is a process that requires consistency and time, but life’s about refining your trained dog, not going to class forever.
Our take: Training facilities provide shelter from the elements and a fixed location to find class every week. However, they have a TERRIBLE drawback: Because dogs learn through very acute and specific patterns, they learn that they are held to the standard more consistently when you’re at the training facility. When class ends and the instructor says, “Ok, now go do your homework at a pet store!” it doesn’t go quite as smoothly! Handling that bout of resistance often dissuades you from “public lessons”. But when do you need this training to be reliable? IN PUBLIC. So we train in public. We train at parks and stores that allow us. We train near railroads, playgrounds, dog parks, ducks, geese, and squirrels. You will have me holding your hand every step of the way while you battle the real world distractions you’ll actually have to deal with. Your dog won’t have a pattern to put together: he’ll learn that obedience is a lifestyle, not a series of tricks.
Our take: As noted, you’ll have all the tools you’ll need by the end of our curriculum. There is nothing more you’d ever need to create a stable, calm, reliable companion, even when off-leash. But we recognize that your training doesn’t end. It requires an additional two to four months before everything becomes rock solid for you and for your dog. For those that want a class format to keep them structured throughout those months and beyond, we offer Advanced and Graduate Class opportunities to help you practice and hone all you’ve learned, as well as an option to retake the core-course again, free of charge.
Our take: Whether it’s trauma, timidity, a feral dog, or aggression, we work with it all. No one is ever “failed”. The only way we don’t solve your issues is if you quit. No matter how bad your dog is, we’ve seen worse and fixed it. Our behavior modification is based on the way dogs naturally communicate with each other and gets to the core of the issue. The first step is to come to a group orientation. There are no dogs present at these orientations and you’ll get homework that will dramatically increase your chance of success in training your dog. You’ll work those exercises at home and then bring your dog to our group class, which is handled in a controlled and safe fashion. You can’t fix “dog aggression” unless you put your dog around other dogs and train their behavior. You can’t address “people aggression” training your dog in your living room or backyard. If further work is needed, we offer private lessons at a discounted rate to our group class students where we can spend more time on any given issue outside of regular class times.


Cost has always been important to us. We are very competitive compared to other courses. We are outrageously competitive when it comes to the content offered. There is no other class that will advance your dog as20150203_183819a (1) quickly as we do. The perfect dog you want is just around the corner.

Each training program begins with an orientation where you’ll meet me, my dog, and our methodology. You’ll hear how we train and why we train the way we train. You’ll get preliminary exercises to prepare you for future lessons. Please go to our sign-up page to reserve a spot.

Alternately, we do accommodate private evaluations if your needs require it. In-home evaluations are billed as a single private lesson. (Note that as of June 2018, the State of Kentucky requires small animal business to pay 6% of revenue to the Kentucky Dept of Revenue and this tax is added on to all of our services)

Scheduling For Group Classes

From March through November, we are always accepting new clients!


Don’t wait until the last minute to schedule your class! We get overly booked during the “crunch time” of each month and if we can’t fit you in you could be waiting a month to start class. The orientation will let you determine what kind of training your dog will need and let you meet me, meet my methods, and meet my dog. If you don’t like me or don’t want your dog to behave like mine, then you won’t owe me a thing. Otherwise we’ll begin building a solid relationship between you and your dog right away. We’ll also give you homework to do before you first group lesson so that you’ll be ready to move forward when you get into a group setting. THERE ARE NO DOGS PRESENT AT ORIENTATIONS. OWNERS/HANDLERS ONLY.

Begin the journey to the dog of your dreams today!
