Inside every "naughty dog" there's a "good dog" waiting to come out, and I have had the pleasure of helping many families and pet-owners bring the best out of their dogs. Read what people are saying!
I am a Certified Humane Education Specialist, Certified Canine Behavior Consultant, ABCDTL-2, and also a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, with over 15 years experience working with and training dogs. I offer a unique positive training style and rapport.
The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.- Henry Beston (The Outermost House)
Laura taught us so much. She was very personable and treated us and our dogs with much respect. I can use this training and information for much more. We can’t thank her enough.
Sandy & AnnieHappy Customers
Laura has been a delight to work with and has done an amazing job with my dog, Annie. With Laura’s expert knowledge, talent and wisdom, Annie started making big changes from the very first day! Laura is a treasure and she makes dog training look easy. Both Annie and I highly recommend her for training.

Laura’s approach is calm and gentle and it WORKS!! I like that she takes the time to listen to your concerns about your dog, and help you in a positive way. Everything she taught me, that I followed through on, has worked! And my dog is as happy about it as I am!
