Laura is the newest addition to the Wonder Puppy team, joining us August 2017. She started working with dogs while in college as an intern for an animal shelter. This is where she fell in in love with the rehabilitation and rehoming of rescue dogs. This passion propelled her into working with dogs after college where she specialized in dog group management and enrolling in Whole Dog Academy, a non-profit dedicated to improving the human-canine bond. As a recent graduate of Whole Dog Academy's professional dog training program, Laura hopes to continue to grow as a dog trainer at Wonder Puppy. Outside of training, Laura enjoys hiking, painting, drawing, cooking, and spending time with her dog Mark, a 5 year old German Shepherd mix.
