The basics. And so much more.
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:
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.
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.
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!

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
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 8 week class that will advance your dog as 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. Those group orientations are held on Friday nights at the Fern Creek Community Center. 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)
Graduate ClassesOffered April through November
- Billed per course. These are courses that expand on the Novice skillset. They are used to create a drive that we can tap into to teach your dog all manner of later responsibilities, including retrieving, scent work, or advanced obedience.
Group ClassesOffered March through November
- The fastest way to the dog of your dreams. Orientations are held at the Fern Creek Community Center. Utilizing flexible scheduling, you’ll have your choice of multiple classes each week. Does Monday work best for your schedule this week? We’ll see you Monday. Sunday works better next week? We’ll see you then. Class size is limited, so book your spot early. Need to retake a particular lesson? Schedule got hectic and you got thrown off-track? Come back through the entire curriculum anytime for free!
Private TrainingOffered year-round
- Private lessons are $75/hour if booked between 11am and 4pm and $100/hour if booked after 4pm or weekends (though weekends and most evenings are otherwise occupied with group classes). Don’t think you have the time or the resources to train your dog? Let us help you with our Board and Train or “While You’re Away” services. For $385/week, we’ll train your dog to the level you want and ensure that control transfers to you seamlessly.
Scheduling For Group Classes
From March through November, we are always accepting new clients!
ORIENTATIONS ARE HELD AT LEAST ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE FIRST GROUP LESSON.
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.
New group classes start as demand requires. Classes are offered on a “flexible scheduling” model, where you’ll have multiple classes and multiple days to choose from (please see the sign-up portal for an individual class’ offered times). If you ever need to change days, we make it easy and convenient to do so. The difficulty of dog training pales in comparison to the difficulty of scheduling and we’ve found that this model eliminates scheduling conflicts. If something happens during your training where you have to miss a full week, we’ll just bump you back to the class that started after you so you can pick up where you left off.
There are no new classes for 2019! We’ll resume with a class beginning January 31st, 2020.
If you need help in the meantime, please send an email to us detailing your dog, your issues, and your goals for your dog and we’ll schedule private sessions as availability allows.
Know that private lessons are offered as midday appointments until our group classes all graduate (mid-December)
