Happy Trained Dogs

The positive reinforcement training methods I use work. Here’s what previous clients have to say about my training and behavioral approaches.

What we liked about Laura’s approach:

“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.  Every she taught me, that I followed through on, has worked!  And my dog is as happy about it as I am.”
 – Caryl and Roper

“Laura came to my rescue after I rescued a beautiful little black chihuahau from a hoarding situation.  Little jewel had a lot of issues and health problems. I found Laura’s training to be loving and highly respectful of both of us. You know, WE are really the ones that need the training. I went from having a little dog who ran from me to one that sat at my feet when I called her in the first session, and it just keeps getting better each time we see her.  I highly recommend this beautiful lady to anyone who wants to live in harmony with their dog.”
– Judy Henry

“Friendly, reassuring, encouraging to us and our dog. Knowledgeable with a good balance between pushing to try ‘one more time’ but always ending before Max’s attention was shot for the session. Thanks for everything. You’ve been a big help.”
 – Max and Megan

Coeur d'Alene Dog Trainer “Humane, reward based rather than punishment.  Appreciate the help and good training tips.”“Very, VERY happy! Laura helped us learn how to best work on training, what to expect, and learning from Goldie point of view.  She is still a puppy, even though she is big! Her need to check things out, her willingness to learn, her attention span, we feel more confident in we are doing and don’t get so frustrated. THANK YOU Laura!!”
