A Positive Dog Trainer

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 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 has given 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!

New Additions

FACILITY: As of late 2017, Your Pro Dog Trainer has expanded our team and our facilities!! We now 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!



Your Pro Dog Trainer would also like to introduce our newest team member, Head Trainer Deanna Russell, and her therapy dog, Zainah. Deanna and Rebecca met while working wildlife detection dogs together in California a few years ago. Deanna’s background is in wildlife, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Wildlife Science from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Deanna has worked with birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals large and small from Alaska to Kenya and a few places in between. While working with a cheetah research group in Kenya, Deanna was introduced to detection dog work and fell in love with dog training and behavior. Rebecca became a mentor to her while they worked together in California. Deanna adopted her working dog, Zainah, from the company after moving back to New York for another job and got her dog certified with Therapy Dogs International. Deanna is excited to be back in California working with Rebecca and with dogs again!


Your Pro Dog Trainer is available to help dogs in all of California, particularly Fresno, Visalia and Bakersfield and surrounding areas. You can reach us directly by emailing info@yourprodogtrainer.com
