Howdy! My name is Laura and I have lived in the Austin area my whole life. My passion has always been centered around dogs and helping others to understand them. I am married to my wonderful wife, Kelly, and we have five dogs in our pack: Jake (Border Collie/Heeler), Charlie (German Shepard/Ridgeback mix), Raven (Malinois/Shepard mix), Benjamin (boxer mix), and Forest (deaf & blind Mini Aussie). I had been searching for a way to be an advocate for all dogs and move into a new career that allows me to intertwine my passion and help people communicate better with their dogs. I attended one of Tara's seminars years ago on body language and realized K9 Workingmind was the perfect place for me to learn, grow, and start my new journey. Everyday I strive to become the trainer that every dog deserves.
