Anthony RodriguezIf you love your job, there is no such thing as work, and when it comes to dog training, there are few things Anthony loves more. He believes training needs to be as much fun for the dog as it is for the human and that relationship-building and communication are crucial. When it comes to Anthony, there are absolutely no strangers. He loves making connections with others – both human and canine – and has a calm spirit that even the shyest dog finds welcoming, hence his special interest in working with fearful and anxious dogs.

Anthony has been collaborating with Love Them Train Them since January 2018. He is one of only four Certified Behavior Consultants (CBCC-KA) in the state of Alabama. He is also a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a member of the Pet Professional Guild. He has a pit bull / Weimaraner mix, Molly, who is his entire world. Anthony & Molly took classes with Rebecca Mason in 2017 and never looked back. They have even experimented with agility training and K9 Nose Work classes. Anthony also enjoys working at Shelby Humane Society, where he provides training and enrichment for shelter dogs.

Anthony holds a bachelor’s degree in Operations Management with a specialization in Leadership Communication from the University of Alabama. He has many topics he is passionate about, such as float therapy. He also loves music and travel and enjoys attending festivals all over the country, where he gets to pursue one of his other interests… just being with people and getting to know them! He looks forward to getting to know you and your dog! Anthony teaches classes at our Vestavia Hills and Inverness locations.
