Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
Had a very helpful experience. Lauren was fabulous, very impressed with her knowledge about dogs and teaching them. Highly recommend her. We will defiantly use her again for continuing training,Feb 28, 2019Verified
She was very nice, but $100 for info I can easily find on the Internet is ridiculous. I had NO idea the “training session” would only consist of her talking to me about what I should do to pottty train my dog.Mar 30, 2018Verified
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 :)Feb 11, 2018Verified
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.Feb 16, 2018Verified
Lauren was absolutely amazing with my dog. She put a training collar on her and it made a huge difference! She is very knowledgeable and I plan on purchasing more sessions! I would absolutely recommend Lauren to anyone!Nov 4, 2017Verified
- 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!
