    Rosa M. Rodriguez was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, USA. Her lifetime devotion for animals has lead to an over 30 year career in the animal field. Rosa attended Colegio Ergos in Ponce, Puerto Rico from 1978 until 1984 during which time she volunteered her summers at the Ponce Animal Hospital with Dr. Humberto Zayas. Graduating with honors in 1984 she enrolled in the School of Agriculture at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez where she studied Pre-Veterinary medicine for three years. During summers she will volunteer at the Eastern Guard Dog Training Company in Humacao, Puerto Rico where her interest in dog behavior and dog training began. In 1987 she went to Milford, Connecticut and became a Certified Animal Trainer at the Unites States K-9 Academy with Dr. Jack Healy (one of the top trainers at the time). In 1987 she moved to Miami and worked as a dog trainer before becoming an animal care taker, trainer and a pet groomer for Dr. Barry A. Goldberg at the Kendale Lakes Pet Health Care Center in Miami.
