Christopher - Trainer
Laura - Trainer
Hi, I am Laura! Whether you want your dog to learn basic manners, a cool new trick, or practical and desirable real life behaviors, I can help you! I have been working with animals for over twenty years, and with dogs and their people for over fifteen. I am also lucky enough to have built a strong support system of peers that I can consult with. I have a background in biology and chemistry, and a focus in pre veterinary medicine, I know and understand the value of science based dog training and change in canine behavior. Also, and from a more personal stance, I enjoy and take pride in continuing my education and in helping people form closer relationships with their dogs.
Like a lot of other pet dog professionals, I started off as a dog walker, groomer, pet sitter, veterinary technician, adoption and rescue specialist, and animal lover. Having been almost born into it though, I was exposed to service dog training at a very young age and that is one of the things which might set me apart. Ever since then everyone but me knew that I was going to end up working with people and their dogs. Growing up, we moved around some and that made me strong, adaptable, and social. I am my happiest with people and dogs, and I have found meaning in life in my profession. Let me know how I can help you!
