Having completed Julie Naismith's separation anxiety dog trainer program to become a certified SA Trainer Pro™, in addition to achieving Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and Fear Free Certified Trainer certifications, your family and your four legged best friend is in good hands and paws with Rocco Autero.
With a wealth of education, experience and creativity, the very best in your dog will be brought out while using the most humane, science-based training techniques.
Seeing numerous family and friends dogs suffer through separation anxiety related issues during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rocco set up to specialize in helping dogs and their families suffering from this issue.
In addition to working with Dog Separation Anxiety clients, Rocco also works in person in the metro New York area with dogs and puppies on general obedience as well as more complex behavior modification. These training services can be found on our main training website, Dogs Life Unlimited.
When not training dogs, Rocco also runs Elite Pet Photography, a successful pet portrait photography studio specializing in fine art photos of dogs and cats.
