My name is Laura Waudby and I reside near Minneapolis, MN.
I teach online classes for the Fenzi Dog Sport Academy! Online classes are highly effective and I wholeheartedly recommend taking courses from me or any of my talented coworkers! Imagine having video examples and step by step instructions to read right in front of you!
I am also entering my 8th year as a trainer for the local service dog organization. My job is directly working with the dogs in for final training and deciding what their “major” is from the 5 types of assistance dogs roles we place- mobility assist, diabetic alert, hearing alert, seizure response, and autism assist. Because I have personally done the training for well over 300 dogs, I have the experience to help you with problem solving!
My passion for competitive obedience lies with the challenge of keeping training fun while also maintaining precision! I am intrigued on how to keep that attitude, energy, and accuracy in trials. Due to Vito’s anxiety issues, I have a special interest in helping dogs who tend to stress and worry in competitions.
In addition to obedience, I actively train for and compete in agility. I occasionally dabble in other sports including disc dog, dock diving, gundog, and nosework.
I occasionally blog in my online journal about daily life with the crew and their training. While it is more of a journal than a teaching blog, if you are interested in learning more about my philosophies check out The Dogs Are Really In Charge.
