About the Trainer:

Laura graduated from college at Truman State University in Missouri with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences. Originally from the Chicago area, she moved to DFW in 2011 to help start and manage a large dog and cat boarding facility. In 2013, she left her position at the boarding facility and joined the VRPC team as a receptionist.

With 15 years in the pet industry, Laura decided to focus her career on her passion for dog training. In 2017, she completed a rigorous training curriculum at FetchFind’s Dog Academy based in Chicago.

Recently, Laura and her husband Bryan relocated to Lavon, Texas. Laura and Bryan share their new 6-acre farm, Cedar Run Ranch with their 3 dogs, 2 horses and 2 cats.  Laura looks forward to continuing to grow her home-based training business PawPro Dog Training. 

Group Classes:

Group classes allow you and your dog to learn and practice new skills in an environment with the added challenge of distraction.  Group classes are designed to bring together dogs and owners facing similar training challenges.  There is a class for every age and  every level.

(Prices vary by class. Please call for dates.)

Classes currently offered:

  • Puppy/Beginner Obedience - For dogs of any age just starting out.

  • Back to Basics Obedience - For dogs over 1 year that need to brush up on skills learned at the beginner level.

  • Intermediate Obedience (Prerequisite: completion of Puppy/Beginner or Back to Basics or permission from the instructor)

  • Distracted Doggies - For dogs of any age that struggle with hyperactivity and on-leash reactivity

Private Lessons:

Private lessons offer a customizable option to work on anything from basic commands to manners at home. Laura can also go with you and your dog to dog parks or public places that you hope to make part of your regular routine. She can help provide you with the tools to make your dog successful in any setting.


  • $50 per hour (additional fees may apply depending on location)


Doggie Day School:

Doggie Day School is an add-on service to Doggie Daycare at Valley Ranch Pet Clinic.  While your dog is at the clinic for daycare, have him or her brush up on basic commands or practice new skills.  Your dog will participate in a one-on-one 20-30 minute training session with Laura, during which he or she will work on whichever skills you feel need practice. Each session includes a Report Card with details on what was practiced, how to continue at home, and how to troubleshoot if you encounter any difficulties.


  • $30 per session



  • 3 sessions: $75

  • 6 sessions: $150

If your dog will be staying overnight at VRPC, please inquire about Overnight Stay plus Training sessions.
