Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have an uncanny ability to read dogs. From the shyest to the most aggressive, they all respond favorably to me. Most importantly, I am a people person. The key to successful dog training is that the dogs' owners having the ability to replicate my interactions with the dogs in order to maintain the results they desire. Most trainers don't relate well to people since they're in it for the dogs. Getting inside the mind of problem dogs is fascinating for me, but my favorite has to be the opportunity to meet all the varied and fantastic people that own the dogs. It's always thrilling to build a rapport with the people so I know they will always call on me when they have problems with their pooch before any drastic decisions need to be made.

Dog Training

What a wonderful young lady to have in your home and teach you and your pet how to interact. She is smart, talented, energetic, personable, flexible and responsive. She communicates clearly and she knows animals...especially dogs. She relates well to owners, understands age differences and preferences for training, and adjusts accordingly. She is direct, but not overbearing. She knows how to get performance and can teach the willing quickly. She is patient and kind. You can't fail with Lauren Roundtree. We are so pleased we found her and she makes the drive to Rockwall so cheerfully! A real winner.

Dog Training

Our pup is only 6 was old and didn’t have interaction with her mother & limited exposure to litter mates for only the first 3 weeks: Lauren brought her 9mo old pup to interact as well as talk about the training and philosophy, etc. It was really great to see our Storm learning to be a dog, and good behavior as a dog right away. My husband and I were sold and went for the full training package :)

FAQs

  • 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!
