Rose Dybel has a passion for dog training. When she graduated from the University of Massachusetts with her major in criminal justice and minor in psychology, she never could have anticipated that her passion for dogs and formal college education would intertwine.
After many years working within the Massachusetts and Virginia criminal justice systems in various capacities — as court manager, corrections officer, and gaming inspector — she found herself semi-retired and looking for a “fun” job. Having spent the last 20+ years doing pet care for extra income, she realized it was a natural fit for her to join the pet care team of From Wags to Whiskers, Inc.
During her first two years with the company, she realized she had a passion for dog training. In researching the field, she was thrilled to realize many of the behavior modification concepts she learned about in college and had used on humans for years, were the very concepts that successful trainers use in dog training.
Rose is a professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). The IACP has awarded her the Dog Training Foundation Certification (DTFC) which means she has demonstrated a high standard of knowledge on such important canine issues as ethology, husbandry, behavior modification, classical and operant conditioning, training tools and ethics.
She welcomes the opportunity to help you communicate with your canine friends in ways that they understand. Contrary to the way many people treat their dogs, those of the canine species are not little humans dressed in furry suits. Once you understand how to speak their language, a whole new, more positive relationship can develop!
