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 worked with Luka for some anxiety issues. She is very kind and compassionate and knowledgeable. Luka loved her and her treats. Luka is not all the way better, but calmer and more lukely to seek us out for comfort if she is upset rather than just sitting and shaking. Laura had some very helpful suggestions.

“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 chihuahua 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.”

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!!”

“Laura, you have completely turned life around for Higgins and me. I was at my wits end with his behavior and didn\’t know who to turn to. You have given me hope, encouragement, and helped Higgins and I to reform our bond that I thought had been broken by my and his frustration. Higgins is now confident, happy, and his tail wags all the time. The games and interaction you have taught us has given him the confidence to be okay in his body and that has in turn changed his behavior completely. Your knowledge, resources, and kind heart are priceless, and I am forever grateful to you.  ”

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)
