Creating motivation and confidence in dogs that struggle

Who am I

My name is Laura Waudby and all things dog sports are my passion.  

I've been competing for more than 15 years in obedience, rally, and agility, as well as dabbling in a few more sports! 

 

And I LOVE working with dogs who are a bit more sensitive or struggle to make it into the competition ring.  

I've been there!  It's a difficult and often lonely journey.  Let me help you show the world what an amazing dog you have!

    Get your dog started on a "working" retrieve! Unlike most trainers, I don't start with the boring (and incredibly difficult!) hold. I first build value for picking up the item and teaching a solid delivery to hand.

    Exams are a tough exercise for both the wiggly labrador type dogs and the nervous ones! We break this exercise down to make sure the dog is both opting in, and learning exams are not about an interaction! This takes the pressure off the dog and allows them to confidently stay without conflict!

Testimonials

Working with Laura has been nothing short of amazing for my progress with training my sports dogs. Her feedback is thorough and very personalized for my individual dogs and my needs.
 
And her training approach has made me simply fall in love with teaching the foundations, as well as working on the precision of obedience; two parts of my training that I used to struggle with. And my dogs love her learning process. This is by far the most progress I've seen in my training and I highly recommend Laura!
