I have been to a lot of dog trainers around Salt Lake for various reasons and Laurie is by far the most knowledgeable and great at giving useful and constructive feedback. I appreciate all the hard work she puts into learning and understanding dog behaviors. I feel lucky to have found a trainer that uses research and science to back her methodology that makes sense to me. In other words, I don’t have a feeling when I go to her sessions “oh that seems weird or should I really be doing this to my dog.. I guess I should because a trainer says so”. I feel comfortable bringing my dog there and trusting that I won’t do anything wrong “because the trainer says so” which I have done with other trainers. That said, I would refer my friends only to Laurie and won’t experiment with other trainers when I get my new puppy (Picture just for fun since we've done Rally at Side by Side) More...
Very knowledgeable about ways to succeed with your dog.
We just finished the Dog Stars class with our 8 month old puppy and the class was fantastic! All of the trainers we worked with were very knowledgeable and helpful. We learned so much and our little guy loved the class too. It was a great experience for him. We can't wait to take more classes! More...
This place is great, they worked with us to curb all of the behaviors we were wanting to correct. They teach you how to teach your dog, so we have been able to expand on what we learned there. Highly recommend
Top grade training classes and custom one-on-one training
Very best at providing the tools and knowledge to train your dog.
We took a nose work course with our poodle here. We had no experience doing nose work but we wanted to do something fun with our dog that he would love. Each class had different challenges. Laurie even took time to research the organization rules since we were planning to do a trial in an organization she hadn't gone through with her own dogs. She was able to answer our questions about what to expect. We went to the trail and he past! We love the relationship we have with our dog. We feel confident that when we go to Skye's Dog Training, we will never be advised to do anything that could harm that relationship. More...
Laurie is a very knowledgable and amazing dog trainer! I've trained two dogs with her and I would never go anywhere else! She is a beautiful person who is passionate about what she does. She is worth every penny!!
I'm so happy to be bringing my pups here. We learned so much the first night!
Wonderful trainer!! She is a 5 star expert!
Laurie is a great and knowledgeable trainer. My dog Bowie and I met her by doing the free puppy training class she offered and now we're continuing his training and it's one of the best things you can do for your dog! I like her approach to training.
