Laura Yurchak, CPDT-KA, CNWI

My husband and I took our dogs training classes years ago. I wasn’t happy with some of the techniques used. I was determined to find a training technique that didn’t jerk my dogs around and cause unpleasantness in our relationship. I found what I was looking for in Chris Bach's The Third Way©.

I worked at Snap-on Tools for 25 years. During that time I took on part time work at Wolf Animal Hospital for three years. In 1996 I left Wolf Animal Hospital, graduated from grooming school, and started Loving Paws Dog Grooming.  I also completed the Pet Care Technician Program offered by the ABKA, obtained my CPR for dogs award and began my dog training career.  I left my corporate job and closed Loving Paws Dog Grooming in 2004 & started Loving Paws LLC dog training and behavior consulting.  

Dogs, cats, and other animals where always part of our family. I had almost 16 years with my Border Collie,Tasha and Cattle Dog mix, Terra (pictured to the left). Both of my girls taught me so much about dog behavior. They are both gone now including Joey my cat and I cherish everyday I had with them. Today, my husband George and I are blessed to live with Harley my Border Collie mix, Lucy my other Border Collie,  (pictured above), Zeke our Beagle Lab mix.  Harley and Lucy compete in NADAC agility trials and K9 Nose Work trials. We enjoy Treibball, hikes, frisbee, play time and just spending time together.  I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the APDT and a Certified Nose Work instructor through the NACSW and a Master Third Way trainer. My goal is to teach people about dogs and how to use dog friendly training techniques to help build a magical relationship between the family and their dog.
