I fully credit Laurie with giving me the tools to rehabilitate my 18-month-old Catahoula. Every time I presented her with a frustration, she was able to tailor an effective solution to his unique issues, leaving me with a dog that I'm no longer scared to take in public. It was quite simply the best money I've ever spent on pet care.

Laurie Volpe, the owner of Stuart Pet Pals, is the finest of all credentialed dog trainers that i have known. Her level of expertise in interpreting a dog's actions, posture, barking and all facets of my pet's reactions has been the basis of my training. Yes, my training! Laurie is able to attain such great success since she sees me and my pet as a single entity and teaches me to react to my dog's nature rather than forcing my pet to react to me. This level of leadership in training and understanding takes all of us and our pets to the highest level of a very happy and rewarding life together.
Laurie is a brilliant trainer who has taught my family how to raise a happy, well-adjusted dog. She came to the rescue when we were desperately trying to undo mistakes we’d made in the first few weeks with our new pup, Belle. While we started with a lovable, smart, eager puppy, our lack of knowledge brought out hard-to-tolerate behavior: loud, unruly, obnoxiousness. After one session with Stuart Pet Pals, everything changed. Over the past several months, we have attended Laurie’s classes (great lessons and great socialization opportunities) and had individual sessions at home. As Belle approaches her first birthday, I reflect on how she has became an exemplary dog … thanks to Laurie!
I have nothing but excellent things to say about Laurie and her professional style of training. My dog and I have taken several classes, as well as personal training. My uncontrollable puppy has become a wonderful mature dog I would be happy to take any where.
BIG THANK YOU to Laurie the owner of Stuart Pet Pals :) We love our adopted pups from Nala's New Life Rescue. They are our kids :) Since we adopted Peanut in November she needed basic training such as not pulling, barking and jumping on people. Words can't express our gratitude to Laurie, the owner. As Peanut walked right by my side this morning - no pulling - I was in awe. It was way easier with Laurie's help and I literally couldn't do it on my own. What a TRANSFORMATION!!!
Laurie not only worked a miracle with Thor in less than one session, she gave me the skills and knowledge to be successful in my daily training. I really LOVED the degree of dedication she gives each and every session.
Laurie at Stuart PetPals is an amazing trainer! I got her name from my Veterinarian after I brought home a 2 month old Sheltie puppy! I have not had a puppy for over 30 years and literally had no clue how to train one! I didn’t even know how to put his harness on! Laurie came the first week and calmed both of us down!! After four weeks I was totally at ease with my puppy and his needs! Just this past month as he turned 5 months old I needed Laurie’s help again and she worked with Beemer and me to get him back on track! He was suddenly acting like a teenager and wouldn’t listen to me on our walks! We worked together four times and I cannot believe the change in him and me!!! She even taught him how to go up and down stairs as I live on the second floor as he only knew how to use the elevator! Now all he wants to do is go up and down constantly!I expect we will be calling on Laurie again as he gets to his next stage which she warned may happen when he is around 8 or 9 months old! I know whatever training we both need Laurie will be there with us 100% 10/31 update: I wanted to add more to this review as this past Saturday we had a fire in the elevator in our condo building and the only access for the whole weekend were the stairs!!! How timely was the training Laurie did with us! We were able to go up and down the stairs with no problem! Thanks again Laurie!!!
I am so glad that I was referred to Laurie! She was and continues to be a life saver! Her classes are very informative and helpful. You don't just leave the class and are left on your own for the week. You go home with notes on what you learned and homework to practice everyday. Laurie has also come out to our home several times to help address specific training needs for our dog and our family, involving everyone so we are all training on the same page. She has also willingly answered questions over the phone. We board our dog with her too! My dog loves going to her house and we love picking her up even more behaved than when we dropped her off. Money well spent and I am always completely confident she will receive the best of care. I HIGHLY recommend Laurie/ Stuart Pet Pals to everyone who is in need of a wonderful dog trainer!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!
Laurie is an awesome trainer and a great person. She really cares about dogs. I have a really large rottie that can be challenging, but in just a short time, Laurie had him under control and ready to learn. She was even able to involve my 11 year old son in the training.Thanks Laurie!
There's no one who's a better overall Trainer of both dogs and people!!! A lot of Trainers are good at teaching the dog, but Laurie understands that just training the dog doesn't make it happen or last!! She is also the most generous person I know, as she has invited me as an unpaid guest to her classes to work with my CCI Puppy I'm training for Service work and will give up at 18 months old. As a Puppy Raiser, Laurie is just the BEST!! Thank you for all you do!!
