Carla was an amazing instructor and we greatly appreciate the hard work and effort that she put into the training that our dog received. She was very professional, extremely nice, and always aimed to please us and make sure that the training was what we expected and the results were satisfactory.

Carla was amazing! I could tell right away that she loves dogs and knows how to speak their language. Harper, our 1.5 year old mini poodle, took to her instantly and they took off for a week of adventure. Every day I got pictures and videos of the training progress being made as well as just some fun, happy doggy pics and vids. Upon return, Carla took the time to teach us exactly what worked for Harper and gave us all the tools to continue the progress at home. Carla was prompt, professional, quick to respond, well-spoken, and easy to work with. She also picked up and dropped off—big bonus for a busy mom of 5. The cost was quite a bit lower than several others I looked into. Highly recommend. Thanks Carla!

Carla has done an amazing job with our pups. We had significant problems and she patiently worked through them with us. One pup was boarded for three weeks and then she did in-home services with the other. Highly recommend. There is nothing better than having well trained dogs.

Thanks Janelle! There is nothing like working with dedicated owners like you and your husband! I am very impressed with your commitment to learning and maintaining the training.

After serious research around dog trainers in the area to address the issues of our well-meaning, yet badly behaved Puggle, we landed on Carla at FluentDog training. Let me say this, we are glad that we did! We sent Riley for two weeks with her and he returned as if he never committed his old behaviors! He now follows directions on cue and relaxes when it's time to. If you're looking to make sure sure your companion gets the best training, look no further than FluentDog! Carla is the best!

Carla was amazing! Firstly it was hard to pick only 3 of options to describe Carla because she really embodied all 5. She was punctual, had excellent work quality, professional, very responsive and her board and train is excellent value for money. My dog Niko took to her instantly and she was excellent with him. I was kind of lost in how to achieve the behavior I wanted in my dog but Carla always knew exactly what to do. She was very knowledgeable. She picked up dropped off which was great and she sent me pictures and videos everyday. One of the really awesome things about Carla was that she continued to support me even after Niko was done with his training! I was very happy with my experience with her and I highly recommend her!
FluentDog Training's reply
Thank you for the rave review! Glad you are happy and hope Niko is continuing to behave himself!

Carla Lafleur


  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have taught multiple group classes at Capital Dog Training Club, including Basic Obedience and Canine Good Citizen Prep. I have put multiple titles on my personal dog: CGC, Companion Dog, and Trick Dog Intermediate.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have trained every single animal I've ever owned: dogs, horses, cats, birds, and even a Betta fish. (Yes, I'm serious!) I love to train because it allows animals and humans to understand each other harmoniously.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Put more stake in the results a trainer is able to achieve with their dogs than the words they say. Dogs don't lie!
