At the age of 10 Laura Respecki experienced her 1st competitive sport showing her Collie. Later on she learned that her true passion was not actually competing, but producing the events and helping rescue dogs.
For 25 years Laura road raced sports cars and produced vintage car racing events in combination with concours car shows. When the team sold their last race car her husband told Laura to return to her 1st love; dogs.
Laura’s current rescue, Kassie, has kept her busy while she earned 25+ titles and has worked for over 9 years as a therapy dog. She helped Laura transform as a trainer. Kassie helped embed in her that she personally will always rescue, rehabilitate and celebrate with dogs.
In 2010 Laura started volunteering as a trainer with a local club; teaching AKC S.T.A.R puppy, obedience, AKC CGC and therapy dog preparation. She is the Club’s AKC Family Dog Program Rep and has produced several AKC tests at obedience shows for the group. Laura is certified AKC CGC and ATT. DMWYD CTDI, CDJ & CCFC. She is currently working on her professional dog training and behaviorist certifications.
