Band Leader/Owner/Certified Positive Trainer & Certified Behavior Consultant, Francine Coughlin, CPDT-KA, IAABC, is a Massachusetts native. She is the proud mother of rescue pups Teeny, Nelly, Finnegan, Bettie, Sugar & special needs pup Stewie, as well as one lovely human daughter Ophelia. She is an ABC (Animal Behavior College) certified dog trainer (Honors Graduate), a Certified Behavior Consultant (International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants), an American Kennel Club (AKC) Certified Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and S.T.A.R. Puppy Evaluator, and Founder and President of BnR’s Rock n’ Rescue, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit rescue organization. She also serves as the President of the Reading North Reading Chamber of Commerce and as Vice Chairperson of the North Reading Historical Commission. While living in Los Angeles for five years and working in the film industry, Francine got involved with volunteering at various dog rescue organizations and shelters and found this to be an interesting and incredibly rewarding way to devote her time. In 2010 back at home on the East Coast, she created Bark n’ Roll to incorporate her love for all things canine into a service that promises to bring some free spirited and friendly fun into its clients’ daily routines by getting to know their dogs and giving them the rock star treatment. She specializes in behavioral modification training work with even the most challenging of pups, who she finds are most often just misunderstood by their humans. She also makes it her mission to recruit only the most responsible and passionate members to her Team to keep our furry Band members rockin’ and walkin’ every day of the week.
