Laura's passion for animals spans back to the early days of childhood. From having pets of her own and completing a hands on Vocational Agriculture Program at Lyman Hall HS she then attended SUNY Delhi for Veterinary Technology. There she was involved in a program that allowed students to work with the local shelter dogs- attending to all medical needs, but also working with them behavioral wise; preparing them for life in a home with a family- making them more adoptable.

Laura then landed a job with an animal wellness company- working from an office and speaking to clients over the phone. This was not fulfilling enough- so any free time she spent volunteering at the local shelter, working with various rescue groups, fostering, and helping where ever it was needed. That's when she made the ultimate decision to change career paths and pursue dog training full-time. She got certified in training by Petco Animal Supplies and dove into the world of training full force; learning as much as possible about the techniques that were most effective and science based- positive reinforcement training. No harsh punishments, no aversives, force free training. Effectively igniting a bond of love and trust between dog and owner.

Fast forward 10+ years later she is now helping clients in and around Hernando County with private, affordable training and pet sitting from the comfort of their home.
