About The Founder

            Hi! I’m Laura, the founder of The Dog Training Academy in Miami, FL. I’m a passionate and certified dog trainer from Animal Behavior College, and my mission in life is to help dog owners understand their pets and their natural behaviors. As an experienced dog care provider and dog behavior specialist, I believe all pets deserve a good home. I want to reduce the percentage of dogs abandoned in the USA through proper dog training techniques, aimed at helping pet owners and pet lovers communicate with their furry family members. 


            I was born in Paris, France in the late 1980s. After asking my parents over and over for a dog (it seemed endless at that age), I finally got my first pet at age 3 – a poodle named Winnie! Although cute and cuddly, Winnie was an aggressive dog who misbehaved often. My family was not prepared to handle his aggression, and we had to put him up for adoption. I still remember the sadness I felt when Winnie left us. My goal is to educate dog owners so that this scenario never repeats itself in the lives of any of my clients! Due to this story in my early childhood, I deeply understand every dog owner who feels desperate to change their dog’s behavior.
