Great work so far! My lil monster is a 7 month old 38lb mystery mix (probably bull dog/boxer/pit/boston terrier) rescue who is great with dogs, but socially awkward with humans so we are working on her impulse control. Formerly I had to pull her off my mom non-stop and keep her on a leash in the house. She is behaving much better with my mom, and not jumping and nipping at her and now walking calmly on a leash! Excited to keep working on new things! Lauren has been a great help!Aug 24, 2017Verified
Very good first lesson. I learned a lot. We are looking forward to continue with the training.Sep 2, 2016Verified
While I'm not averse to using prong or ecollars, I've found out the situation dictates the use. In my one session, my biggest concern and reason for hire was maybe partially addressed at the best (separation anxiety). My dog's behavior was completely misinterpreted and the recommendations provided by the trainer exacerbated my problem. 3 plus months down the line, I feel I'm better informed about dog behavior and training, where separation anxiety is concerned and can write this review in clear conscience. Here are the direct results of my use of prong collar based on this trainer's recommendations: dog-fear aggression, human aggression, self harming tendencies, considerable increase in destructive tendencies. I saw immediate improvement or even complete cessation of unwanted behavior after I stopped using the prong collar 2 months from the session. After spending thousands in repair work, pet hospitalization and counter conditioning, I can 10/10 say DO NOT hire this trainer if you have dog behavior issues.Dec 20, 2016VerifiedLauren R.'s reply
Thank you for taking time to review my services. We only met one time at the beginning of Sept when I believe you had just acquired your dog & were moving. I always tell folks that a newly acquired sheltered dog is under extreme stress and is likely not exhibiting permanent or characteristic behavior. I am definitely not married to any type of equipment and had you reached out to me for follow up as most clients do I would have gladly re-evaluated your situation to see if any modifications to our approach were necessary. You already owned the collar and my recommendation is to only use this device for 1-8 weeks maximum. It is definitely just a temporary training tool for Leash walking. It sounds like you have found the help you need which is great. My notes say your dog was growling at visitors, resource guarding, & had separation anxiety which in no way was going to be fixed after meeting with me for an hour. I believe you had also told me this was your first dog which made Rocky's issues all the more challenging. I am always happy to help, in the off chance you still need any.
Responsiveness to our issues, value and her presentation of her "track to run on".Jun 19, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My quote is always for one lesson so folks can learn my unique method of training and decide if we are a good fit to move forward with more training if that is necessary for their situation. The quoted lesson is lesson 1 of a package, and the remainder of a package is due at the end of the second lesson. Folks are always welcome to pay per lesson if they do decide they need lessons in addition to the original quote.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always watching dogs interact with each other to learn any new nuances in their interactions I might have missed before. Also, I try I stay up on the latest training trends and medical breakthroughs as well as nutritional research via the Internet and independently published magazines such as Your Dog and The Whole Dog Journal. I also try to attend conferences when my schedule allows such as The Art & Science Of Animal Training Conference at UNT.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've trained dogs since I was 7 years old though my parents had no knowledge of training to give me. Once I graduated from Texas A&M, all my friends & family said I was too good at helping them with their dogs for me to not go into training professionally. So, here I am, several hundred dogs trained later, and loving every minute of it!
