My name is Laura Tardif and am the owner an operator of Payton and Pals!
I have been working with dogs and studying their behavior for more than 10 years. Realizing that each animal and each pet owner has unique needs, I have committed to learning many different approaches to training and relationship building.
I started Payton and Pals in 2012 to provide a customized, one-on-one training experience for owners and their pets. It is my belief that no animal is beyond repair, and that even an aggressive dog can be rehabilitated as long as it receives the proper training, structure and consistency.
In the 10+ years i have been involved in dog training, i have see that a one size fits all training approach does not work for everyone. Recognizing that dogs and their humans have unique personalities which have been shaped by their history. Its important to determine the techniques best suited to each individual and their family. I firmly believe that a dog’s good behavior becomes reliable once a successful routine is identified and consistently maintained in the home.
