Rodney Little: Youngwood Top Dog
With over 20 years of dog training experience Rodney’s love of dogs stems from early childhood when he got his first German Shepard growing up in a small farm town in Pennsylvania. But it was Sarge, a Black Shepard/ Lab mix he adopted in 2012, that led him to his dog training business.
Sarge had been abandoned and later taken to a kill shelter before he convinced Rodney to take him home. He did not know much to start but through hard work and dedication Sarge became well trained dog. After mastering all of his basic commands it was time to find Sarge a job so they assisted the State Police with missing person cases. Later Sarge was recertified and trained as a mobility service dog, then also trained and recertified as a Top Dog Therapy Dog.
Finally, in 2014, Rodney took the leap of faith and started Youngwood Top Dog Services. Having both a police and military background he was excited to start and grow this new dog training business. He left his career in retail to open Youngwood Top Dog Services and now enjoys fulfilling his passion for dogs by getting to work with them every day.
Rodney is an animal expert for Court of Common Pleas, Westmoreland County.
