Did you know Laurie Luck was my instructor when I went through the Karen Pryor Academy as a student? She was! In fact, she is largely to blame for my current situation, particularly my existence on social media and even this blog! Even after graduation, she just couldn’t shake me. And here we are several years later, sharing a drink and talking about dogs. 

An entrepreneur and social media enthusiast, Laurie delights in sharing her knowledge and experience with dog owners across the country. She is committed to helping improve the lives of dogs through education of the humans at the end of the leash. Laurie’s YouTube channel offers free dog training videos, and her blog details training experiences and ideas that every dog owner will find helpful.

During this conversation we discuss:

  • What’s so hard about living a positive reinforcement lifestyle
  • How being prepared for what might happen is usually the hardest part of that
  • How societal pressure can interfere with even the best-laid training plans
  • What training skills are necessary to jog safely with an on-leash Great Dane
