Canines In Action, Inc.

With hundreds of hours in continuing education in animal and human training, with multiple national and international certifications, and with more than twenty years training in Indianapolis and elsewhere; Laura knows what works!

Laura is a graduate of and faculty for the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior, and she is certified through TAGteach Level 2 and is a Fear-Free Certified Trainer.

We’ll use positive reinforcement to train a new behavior to replace the unwanted behavior.  For example, we don’t teach a jumping dog “not to jump,” we teach him to sit to greet a person.  We use dog-friendly and humane methods, primarily marker-based training, using anything important to the dog (attention, petting, toys, treats) as earned rewards.  In short, we’re behavioral clicker trainers.
