Lara has been training dogs and puppies for over 30 years, first as an assistant to her grandfather, who was a Search and Rescue dog trainer in the Alps of Slovenia, and then professionally as an obedience trainer for over 15 years in the U.S. She graduated with honors from Affection Dog Training School in La Habra, California, specializing in positive reinforcement dog training techniques
. She then went on to teach group training classes as a trainer with Animal Behavior and Training Associates for PetCo stores in the South Bay and Long Beach areas of Los Angeles. During the course of four years of group classes, Lara has trained hundreds of dogs, and a wide variety of breeds, and has vast experience with positive reinforcement techniques for both beginning and advanced off-leash obedience work.
RIP Sweet Rascal: 4/1/96 - 10/25/11
Lara's dog Rascal, a Pointweiler (Pointer/Rottweiler mix), began her career as a "demo" dog in Lara's group classes while still a puppy, assisting with socializing and demonstrations of commands. She continued to assist with private sessions until the age of 15 when arthritis finally forced her to retire. She spent the remainder of her super senior years sunbathing and enjoying her nightly walks until her passing from liver disease at the age of 15 1/2 in 2011 (just about 100 human years!).
We are actively on the lookout for our new demo dog who will have some big paws to fill as Rascal's successor!
