ABOUT OUR TEAM
A Positive Dog Trainer
Founder & Owner Rebecca Corso (formerly Ross) is a kind and a positive dog trainer. She has a wealth of knowledge about dogs and animal training. She has trained a variety of animals ranging from chickens to dogs, rhinos to tigers, and many species in between.
Rebecca has a Masters degree in Zoology and has spent the last twenty years building a solid foundation in animal training based on a combination of education, science and hands-on experience. She is also a professional member of several well respected organizations and frequently attends conferences and seminars to stay current in the field of animal training.
Rebecca’s knowledge has been independently tested and passed rigorous standards to achieve certifications as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) and a Certified Behavior Consultant Canine (CBCC-KA). Rebecca is also a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. Rebecca is also certified as a Service Dog Coach through Cooperative Paws.
Rebecca also founded Dogs for Conservation, a former non-profit organization that trains detection dogs to sniff out endangered species to help scientists study them. Rebecca’s background as a wildlife biologist and animal trainer gave her a unique ability to succeed in a very unusual industry. Rebecca has rescued many dogs from bad situations and then turned them into amazing working dogs who love their job.
These dogs often end up on death row and are generally unsuitable for the average pet owner due to their insatiably high-energy requirements and need a “job”! They also often arrive with some behavioral issues that Rebecca addresses before helping them reach their full potential! Rebecca and her husband Matthew run Your Pro Dog Trainer together as a family affair along with their 3 children!
California Service Dog Academy
California Service Dog Academy (CSDA) is a non-profit 501c3 was founded in 2018 by Matthew & Rebecca Corso. As the owners of a dog training and behavior consulting company, Matt & Rebecca are used to helping dogs of all shapes and sizes with their training and behavior needs.
When they began consulting with people interested in service dogs, it became clear that the demand for good dogs far outweighed the supply. As Matt & Rebecca advised individuals interested in “owner trained service dogs” they also assisted with all the aspects involved in the selection, evaluation and training of puppies and dogs for service work. The work with their clients and the so often long and heartbreaking journey to find a dog led them to create CSDA with the hope of providing appropriate dogs to those who truly need them.
We have the best team around so that we can help more dogs and so we can all take the occasional day off! We work as a team assessing and creating training plans for every dog that we work with. All of our trainers are committed to using positive reinforcement training methods. We are always continuing our own education by frequently attending seminars, workshops and conferences.
We have a 7 acre training facility in Visalia that allows us to help more dogs and gives us a safe, private and FUN place in country for the dogs in our care to flourish!
