Rosalee Kaschel, CPDT-KA

Rosalee has been training dogs since 2010. Aside from training, she has worked in many different fields of animal care, giving her not only knowledge in animal behavior, but all aspects on how to care for pets. Her goal as a trainer is to improve the bond between humans and animals by educating owners on how to properly communicate with their pets, so everyone can live happier and healthier lives.

Born and raised in Brazil, Rosalee always knew from a young age she wanted to work with animals. At 18, she moved to the United States to attend college and decided to stay. She currently lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with her husband, who shares their residence with her other loves; 2 mutts, Byu and Gumbeax; 2 kitties, Penelope and Flyer; and a senior bunny named Stella.
