"Lara is a miracle worker - she has a true passion for working with dogs and it shows. Our little pup is normally nervous and fearful around other dogs, strangers, and sounds, but came back to us calm and confident! Her structured programs also include a game plan for pet parents to follow at home, which has been a game changer. I also appreciate her diligence in sending us daily detailed updates of our pup, which included progress updates and videos of how-to's which were helpful for future reference. There's no one else I'd trust to train our little pup but her. So glad I found Wag and Paw Training!"

Our Clients Say

“ Winston was 100% a pandemic puppy, who was very anxious and overly-affectionate when interacting outside of the home with other humans and dogs.  His leash control was also not great, making walks more of a workout than enjoyment.  But Lara's training program helped Winston find a new level of calm.  Both Winston and us now enjoy peaceful walks and our neighbors/friends all comment on how less impulsive he is.  Also, Lara's methods were kind and aligned with how we feel dogs should be treated, with tons of love and attention.” ​

"Our rescue dog Gracie (Grace) suffers from debilitating anxiety and gastrointestinal iissues. We finally got control of her digestive issues and our Internal Medicine Vet suggested that we find a trainer who can help dogs with anxiety. We looked at many behaviorists and trainers but we didn't feel comfortable with any one them. Then we found Lara at Wag and Paw.

From the get go Lara was upbeat and understood how anxiety can impact a dogs life. She designed a program to help Gracie work through some of her fears and gain enough confidence to follow Lara's training exercises. Within 10 days under Lara's guidance Gracie has learned how to settle and "turn-off" so she can rest and reset. Her structured walking skills, playing skills and interactions with other dogs has exceeded our expectations!!

We are confident that Gracie's life is so much happier and feel Lara provided us with a strong foundation and given us the tools we need work to with Gracie everyday and help her navigate the world."
