"We adopted our dog, Doug, from a farm. He came with some serious dog aggression and we were so worried that we'd have to keep him cooped up away from the world and walk him at odd hours in the city. We found Laurel, and Doug is like a new dog. Laurel has been so fantastic working with our schedule and helping us to train Doug. She gave us skills that were easy to understand and we could work on between sessions. Just last week, he sat across the street from four dogs and paid them no mind. We've got a little bit more work to do before he has best dog friends, but I'm so happy with Laurel!"

"Laurel has been excellent thus far. She is very patient and passionate. She also clearly loves dogs and literally treats Nina as if she were her own. Laurel explains Nina's behaviors and teaches us techniques to change them. Laurel also gives a thorough and extensive list of notes and suggestions after each lesson, which has been very helpful. We've had 2 sessions so far, and I've already noticed some improvement. Looking forward to the next sessions with Laurel!"

"Laurel was our dog trainer for 5 private sessions. Our dog is an aggressive small dog. We worked on leash training, muzzle training, and a few other coping skills. Our doggie's personality hasn't changed and we have better tools to deal with his behaviors. Our dog loves Laurel and I recommend her to anyone."

"Laurel has been working with my husky rescue pup, Meera, and me for the past year.  Laurel comes to my home and is very flexible with scheduling. We've had lessons on difficult issues like isolation anxiety and resource guarding as well as help with the basics: release commands, place, recall, and leave it/drop it. Each lesson I have not only come out with a better dog but also as better, more confident and consistent doggy caregiver. Meera loves and respects Laurel and it's clear Laurel speaks fluent dog. Laurel also makes thorough notes on each lesson she immediately emails, which allows me to continue Meera's training seamlessly. 


The husky rescue we got Meera from loves to rave about her training progress and that makes me so proud - of course, it's all thanks to Laurel!  Meera has even made home visits with me to other potential husky rescue adopters, and is used as a lovely example of how well-behaved huskies can be with the right kind of training. 


We are so grateful to have someone so skilled and trustworthy to help us care for our beloved pup! Thank you, Laurel!"
