Rebecca started RubyDog Training in 2012 and has been working with dogs for as long as she can remember — she first apprenticed with a trainer at age eleven. She grew up in Mexico City in a house filled with animals, including five dogs — they were her first teachers. Her childhood dream was to speak to animals, and after years of researching and observing animal behavior, she has come pretty close.
Understanding how dogs communicate and seeing the comfort, support, and independence offered by the human animal bond led Rebecca to concentrate on service dog training.
She specializes in psychiatric service dogs and has coached many teams in learning tasks to assist with depression, anxiety, and PTSD, as well as the manners and confidence to implement these tasks in daily life. RubyDog is dedicated to helping others achieve and benefit from the connection between people and animals.
Rebecca has worked with and been inspired by countless dogs of all ages and breeds. In addition to service dog training, she enjoys helping families and their dogs understand each other. Her end goal for RubyDog Training’s canine clients is basic obedience, manners, impulse control, and solving common household problems. She is also experienced in behavior modification techniques used to teach dogs to cope with anxiety, fear and reactivity.
Rebecca lives with her two daughters, a sweet but nervous Rottweiler mix, a small in body, large in mind terrier mix, and a menagerie of cats, chickens, turtles, and assorted fish.
