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 for real-world scenarios 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, or as their own curriculum.

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: 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. These are held at our facility at 6314 Bardstown Road. (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)

Private Adult Lessons - $80

Private lessons are $80/hour, Mon-Thurs 9am to 5pm. Private lessons are utilized by owners to learn obedience and house management protocols in a private-tutoring setting.

You can also continue from these sessions into a group setting to practice your skills and hone your ability to work your dog in stressful situations. Click here to schedule!

Board and Train - $3,000 - $5,000

You can expect a 6-10 week board and train experience to deliver on leash excellence. Price includes equipment and the cost of classes where you will be given EXTENSIVE instruction to transfer the handling and control and given the opportunity to train your dog to work for you without need for leash or other equipment.  More information.

Scheduling For Group Classes

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 see what’s expected to get the results you want. You’ll meet us, our methods, and our dogs. If you don’t like us or don’t want your dog to behave like our graduates’, then you won’t owe 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!
