Laura was wonderful! She is a wealth of knowledge all things cat! She took our concerns seriously and validated us, while advocating for our cat’s needs. She spent the 90 minute session observing us with him, asking dozens of questions, constantly offering her thought process, and testing out different theories with our cat. She sent a follow up email with a plethora of resources and a concrete diagnosis and treatment plan! Without a doubt, we recommend Laura’s services!

Laura was really helpful and thorough.. Our resident cat had some specific issues that made accepting our new cat a challenging case, but Laura was was filled with knowledge and ideas about how to help her accept the newcomer. She was flexible and understanding with scheduling and an overall lovely person!

Laura was fantastic! One of our cats had struggled with litter box issues for years. Laura helped provided some explanations for why our cat was struggling and gave us some concrete steps to take to address the issue. She was very responsive to emails and immediately helped us come up with new strategies when our cat regressed to some old behaviors prior to our scheduled follow-up appointment. I can’t recommend Laura strongly enough, she’s absolutely wonderful.

My cat tormented me with his litter box problems for seven years. When I finally snapped I booked an appointment with this person. Literally the first thing she suggested solved the problem instantly.It doesn’t come cheap. But neither does replacing furniture because it smells like cat pee.

We have a cat that’s rather aggressive with the other cats in our household. Laura gave us some excellent advice for how to manage our cats (and dogs) and I definitely intend to follow up with the subsequent training that she provides. This is top notch material and extremely helpful! I very highly recommend her services to you.

I contacted Laura after failed attempts by my vet to help solve litter box issues with my cat. Laura came to my house and assessed my setup for my cat and came up with a plan of action to get my cat to stop urinating outside the box. She is extremely knowledgeable about cat behavior and had several backup plans if the first option didn’t work. We were able to successfully fix the litter box aversion and at the same time build up my skittish cat’s confidence. He once would hide anytime guests were in the home and now he comes out to socialize. I cannot recommend Laura enough to help with your cat’s behavior issues. As a bonus she is also very well versed in dog behavior, so if you have any issues with multi-pet homes she can help!

Our training philosophy is grounded in science-backed methodology and current industry best practices with an emphasis on least-invasive minimally-aversive (LIMA) humane training techniques. All consultations come with a custom training plan for your cat’s unique needs, created with kindness, patience, and empathy in mind.
