Train, Walk, Play!

Pet care experience

My name is Lauren Miller and I would love to be your pet's best friend! I currently have over 20 years of experience working in the pet industry and caring for client's pets! This includes dogs, cats, exotics and even livestock. I'm currently working towards becoming a certified professional dog trainer and up to date on all the latest science-based training techniques. I specialize in working with fearful dogs. I am always continuing my education by going to seminars and training classes with my own dogs. My training methods are gentle and based in positive reinforcement and relationship building. I have two older dogs named Zoe and Phoenix, a younger pup named Alice and two kitties, Pandora and Lilly. In the past I have owned chinchillas, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, goats and chickens. I also have experience caring for large farm animals including horses, donkeys and cattle. Why I love working with dogs: My whole life has always revolved around animals! I started training dogs at the young age of 12 through our local 4-H program and a few years later, I was doing competition obedience trials and agility. When I was 18 I went to groom school and became an all breed dog groomer. After 13 years of grooming, I decided I wanted to get back into doing my favorite thing: training! I spent 3 years working closely with a dog behavior consultant and helping owners train their dogs at a training facility in Portland, Oregon. I just love figuring dogs out, why they do what they do and why they don't do what we want them to do. I absolutely love it when the light bulb inside a dog's head comes on and they begin to understand their people. It's the best thing in the entire world.

Lauren is one of the nicest and most responsible people I know! She takes amazing care of her own dogs, and is always very sensitive to their needs, often putting their needs above her own. She will undoubtedly provide the same level care and compassion to all of her clients' dogs. Lauren is also an experienced groomer, and a great force-free trainer. There are very few people in this world who I would trust with my dogs, and Lauren is one of them.

Safety, trust & environment

Each pet is an individual and their care should be, too. I'm dedicated to loving your pet as if they were my own. Does your pet have a special diet? No problem. Does your pet require special handling? No problem. I've worked with a variety of temperaments from the happy-go-lucky to very scared of making new friends. I've even worked with some aggression.

Information Lauren M. would like to know about your pet

I would love to know all the details about your pet! Getting to know you and your dog is very important to me! Tell me a bit about their normal routine, what their favorite activities and treats are! Is your dog comfortable meeting new people? Will your dog be comfortable with me entering your home? Is your dog friendly with other dogs? Is your dog currently on any medications? Does your dog have any food allergies?

A typical day

Your dog and I will go on walks through your neighborhood. We will sniff all the sniffs, take in all the sights and while we're out I will also be working on polite leash walking skills and other good behavior, such as sit and stay. If your dog is on a special diet or has allergies, please be sure to provide approved food and treats, as all training needs to be reinforced with things your dog is able to have.
