About Rose Dybel

Rose Dybel Dog TrainerRose Dybel has a passion for dogs and for being a dog trainer. 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 her formal college education would intertwine.

She worked many years within the Massachusetts and Virginia criminal justice systems in various capacities. She was a court manager, corrections officer, and gaming inspector. Later, 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. She decided to do the needed research and training to become a professional trainer.  In researching the field, Rose realized she had a perfect background for the profession. This thrilled her because 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.
