Why Rose City Dog Training?

Every day, we get calls from frustrated owners that are seeking help for their dog’s behavior, and many of them have sought out training in the past, but could not receive the guidance and commitment they needed. Our training aims to set you and your dog up for success at the get-go, and we commit to the training until you get the results you and your dog need! We also understand that every dog is different and that approaching a dog training regimen should be tailored based on the dog’s issues and needs, and also the owner’s lifestyle and training goals. When you work with Rose City Dog Training, we will work on your case until we reach those goals, and we will not turn your dog away because they’re “a lost cause” or “untrainable”…change is possible and we will accomplish it together!
