Here’s a note from Lara:
“My family has always had dogs, and from a young age I was always interested in caring for them. After graduating from Virginia Tech, I took a job in software client services, all the while knowing my true passion was dogs. When I finally made up my mind to pursue my passion, I quit my job and moved to Texas, where I took an intensive training course to learn about professional dog training. I was able to strengthen my relationship with Jameson (the brindle boy on the left), and I also had the opportunity to train a rescue dog from scratch (the pretty little dalmatian). Both dogs taught me so much about the training process!
I began training as a profession upon my graduation from Starmark Training Academy, when I returned to the Northern Virginia (Fairfax/Burke) area. I offer a training approach that will help you and your dog understand one another, and I will always teach fairly in a way that is easy for both you and the dog to understand. I believe dogs need three main things to live a fulfilled life: physical exercise, mental stimulation, and clear communication. I will work with you to help you form a lasting relationship with your dog through clear communication, so you can enjoy each other to the fullest.
While building this relationship, I will teach you and your dog about mutual respect. It is my belief that we should always be fair, clear, and positive with our dogs in order for them to learn what we expect from them. I will help you achieve this clarity!
I understand that, just like people, dogs are individuals. We will work together on a training plan that fits the needs of your dog’s unique situation.”
A 90 minute consultation is the first step. Lara will meet with you and your dog, and she will get a good understanding of what it is you would like to accomplish. She will discuss your goals, and she will come up with a personalized training plan for you. This consultation also includes a private lesson.
After the initial consultation, you can elect to move forward with a training package based upon your discussions with Lara.
